The word diet is something I never really enjoyed using. To me when I say it I feel restricted to bland foods and not being able to indulge in a dessert. I have always struggled with my weight, more so after I had my third child. I had this imaginary goal to look as I did before I had kids. It was a misconception I had and dieted on and off for 4 years, but I was miserable!
Within the past year or so I decided instead I want to just be healthy. So what if I can’t fit into my size 4 jeans anymore. So what I can not shake this last 10 lbs or so. So what if I have a little belly pouch that sits over my jeans. My body has changed since children and I have accepted that.
Getting healthy to me means being able to enjoy the little things in life like:
- Having more energy to keep up with my kids. Working out just 30 minutes a day has made the world of difference on this one.
- Not living on rabbit food while my family is devouring that steak and potato dinner I slaved over.
- Not having to measure or weigh food – who has time for that one?
- Still indulge my sweet tooth without feeling guilty! This one is a biggie for me.
At 4 o’ clock every day without fail, I hit a wall. By this time especially over the summer we all need a little down time from the busyness of the day. The kids go to their room for quiet time and I grab myself a cup of iced coffee and a healthy dessert.
What I have been loving these days are these Fiber One Cheesecake Bars. It is just the sweet treat I need for a little healthy pick me up in the afternoon. Since they are only 150 calories and 5g of fiber, I do not feel guilty at all! Okay, well maybe alittle because I have been hiding these from the rest of the family to enjoy myself. A mom has to do what a mom has to do sometimes, right?
I am still eating healthy and indulging in my #CheesecakeInstincts.
The Fiber One Cheesecake Bars come in salted caramel and strawberry. Both are amazing and have this smooth creamy texture you would expect in a good slice of cheesecake and have a light graham cracker bottom. They are delicious and pair so nicely with my favorite cup of coffee.
