You know how one good change leads to another?  I remember my pre baby days when I would get up and work out right away because if I did that, I would make better choices all day long.  I would eat healthier, drink more water, and feel so much better about myself.  These days, I’m running on an average of between 4 and 6 hours of sleep a night.  Between the 3 kids, my blog, my real estate business, attempting {and generally failing} to have a clean house, feed us healthy meals, get the garden planted, and always be there when the baby wants to breastfeed, I am busy.  And tired.  So very, very tired.  By the time I am getting the kids ready for their naps, I am doing the head bob.  I’m so tired.  I need to find a way to snag a few extra hours of sleep one night every so often, but that doesn’t seem to be happening.  I grab my can of pop and try to stay awake so I can get some work done.  A few hours later, usually around the time the kids are waking up, the sugar crash hits and I’m just as exhausted and now my 3 little gorgeous humans are smiling at me waiting for the fun to start again.

3rd V8V-Fusion + Energy and Veggies

How can I get enough vegetables?It’s not that I don’t know that my pop habit isn’t helping, it’s that I really look forward to that small rebellious act, ha!  But let’s be honest here, it has to stop.  It’s not helping.  What I really need is a pick me up in the late morning – early afternoon hours.  When I spied the new V8 V-Fusion + Energy Drink as the kids were picking out juice at Walmart, I figured I would give it a shot.  I’ve always been a fan of V8 and I definitely need to get back on track again.  I need to find that feel good energy so I can keep up with the kids and the rest of my life all day long.  After all, swapping one drink for another isn’t that hard to do, right?

I decided to start doing some yoga while the kids watch their show before nap.  I also have a V8 V-Fusion + Energy Drink to see if that would help me feel more alert.  I tried the Orange – Pineapple and the Black Cherry flavors, but the Blueberry-Pomegranate is my very favorite.  I wanted to try the Peach-Mango flavor as well, but they were all out.  I thought that it wouldn’t hurt if I tried to really increase our fruit and vegetable intake some more, or at least my intake, so we have been eating a lot more berries and some vegetables in the morning.  I seriously CAN NOT WAIT until our garden is ready to be picked.

How Can I find more energy?

For this busy mom, not only do I need something to keep my eyeballs open and my body moving while I’m at home, but I need something to keep my energy up when we are on the go.  Between the kids’ t-ball, my softball, playdates, field trips, and anything else we decide to do, I love being able to grab a can of V8 V-Fusion + Energy, toss it in the diaper bag, and have it on hand when I’m ready for some natural energy.

Healthy Drink on the go

How do you give yourself that natural energy boost to keep you going in what often feels like a never ending day?
