Yesterday on Instagram I shared of photo of myself from 2012. It’s funny looking back and remembering how I felt that day. I was on my honeymoon, standing in my hotel room in Prague, proud of my health and fitness successes, and yet, I was so critical of myself and how much further I had to go.
I’ve learned a lot about myself these past few years and am working really hard to live a balanced life. A life in which I reach a happy and healthy weight, continue to do workouts I love, and find moderation in all areas.
One thing I’ve been working on this year is to enjoy my favorite foods, but in a simpler and healthier way. Enter Special K’s new brownies!
I love brownies. LOVE. But making a pan of brownies has never turned out well for me. While I’m working to reach a place where I can make a pan of brownies and it not phase me, I’m just not in that place yet. Special K’s new brownies, which come in Divine Fudge and Heavenly Caramel, are 80 calories, 3g fat, 13g carbs, 3g of fiber and less than a gram of protein (2PP per brownie) and are incredibly delicious!
This week I’ve enjoyed the brownies 3 ways — by themselves, diced up with strawberries, and as an ice cream topping.
I’m learning to find a happy medium and to stop being all or nothing. I love finding products like these, which allow me to have the best of both worlds!
