Share Healthy Resolutions for a chance to win a $100 Visa Gift Card

This is a compensated review by BlogHer and Jimmy Dean,  however the opinions and feelings expressed here are my own.
I'm still trying to adjust to life as a Southerner after our move to Nashville last year. One of the biggest adjustments has been the food. Southern folks LOVE their food, and rightfully so: it is delicious. But traditionally it is delicious in that fried, smothered and soaked in sausage kind of way. Which is to say, not so kind on the behind.

A group of fellow moms and I get together regularly to try to encourage each other to make healthier eating choices and exercise more. These are perennial goals that will make it onto my New Years resolution roster year after year. Not because I'm always failing, but because the project of making better choices for yourself is an ongoing project. I've found this project has been considerably complicated by the presence of a darling, energetic toddler in my life.

Breakfast is one of the issues I'm particularly struggling with as the mother to a very active toddler. Before becoming a mom, it was fairly easy to scramble up some egg whites and have a nutritious and filling breakfast. Those mornings now seem downright leisurely. Here's a peek at a typical morning in my life now:

Toddler: Choo choo! Choo choo! Play choo choo!
Me: Sweetheart, you may play with your choo choo after you finish eating.

       {Said while running around the kitchen loading the dishwasher, and packing his lunch for daycare}


Toddler: Elmo? Elmo!
Me: Sweetheart, I love Elmo too, but right now you cannot watch Elmo on TV. We don't watch TV all the time, only on special occasions.

       {Said while wiping up Cheerios that have spilled everywhere, wrestling his socks back onto his feet, washing out the milk container he uses to take milk to daycare, filling milk container, and wrestling him down from the couch where he is trying to scale the blinds}


Me: Darling, what have you done with your shoes?
Toddler: Shoes? Mama shoes! {Said while clomping around in my shoes}

You get the idea. I'm lucky if I get out the door in one piece, with weather appropriate clothing on everyone. Most days this means eating breakfast standing up in the kitchen while multi-tasking on six other things. That means that lately instead of filling foods with protein and fiber, I find myself quickly shoveling down cold cereal, only to arrive at the office and find myself hungry again an hour later.

Healthy Resolution #1: Squeeze in a little time for myself. The world won't fall apart without me.

Being hungry at the office is a giant bummer, because "the office" is a wonderland of evil temptations, like those donuts, and that cheese tray left over from the meeting. And before my sensible lunch I find I've already consumed 1200 mostly empty calories in the form of sugared coffee and sweets. EEK! And the worst part is that I know its a bad decision, but I find myself doing it anyway. Because if I don't get enough protein at breakfast in the morning, I'm a lost cause of weak will as soon as I'm in front of sugary treats.

Healthy Resolution #2: Find more filling breakfast choices that will work with our hectic toddler morning schedule.

So I was really jazzed when I learned that Jimmy Dean had come out with a line of breakfast products that use turkey sausage. Most of all because they’re 300 calories or less, have 12 grams of fat or less and up to 23 grams of protein per serving…...and they are fast to make. Like toddler-mama fast.

Poultry sausage is a godsend in my kitchen, because I think it tastes delicious, but it has a really reasonable nutritional profile, so I can work it into our family's menu without stressing out about going on some brown rice fast for four days before hand. I'm not really into "sneaking" healthy things into random hidden places. But I've become a huge fan of using substitutes where I think they are just as satisfying as the full fat version. Poultry sausage is certainly a winning substitute. I also use ground turkey in place of ground beef in heavily seasoned dishes like stuffed green peppers or chili. I've also discovered a lot of high fiber low fat tortillas that I like just as much as their less healthy counterparts. I found a brand of low fat cottage cheese that I think is just as creamy and delicious as the full fat stuff. All these little substitutes really add up without making me feel like I'm depriving myself.

Healthy Resolution #4: Be more systematic about identifying problem areas of my diet and finding satisfying healthy substitutes.

And then of course, my list of New Year's Resolutions wouldn't be complete without that perennial favorite:

Healthy Resolution #5: Go to the gym more often and find ways to be physically active!

I wonder how many calories I burn repeatedly dragging a 32 pound toddler uphill in his sled?

  26. I'm having major back surgery this Thursday. Like it or not, I've vowed to follow the directions of my physical therapist. Doing things my way--the lazy way--won't help regain my lost strength and mobility. In addition, I'll need to eat less to compensate for my limited movements.

  38. I have resolved to actually eat breakfast in the morning. Usually I just run out of the house and don’t even think about it. So by mid-morning, I am starving and I have to go the vending machine to get something to snack on. So by eating a healthy breakfast every day, I should be able to curb all of the snacking that I do.

I always felt weird that I didn't know how to swim so this year I signed up for swimming lessons at our local community college. Not only will I learn a new skill, I'm hoping to get healthier with some much-needed exercise.

  88. There is always food in our break room at work and we get bagels/doughnuts on Wednesdays and Fridays. I remind myself that I'm barely 5' and over 30 so I really have to watch what I put in my mouth. If I didn't bring my pack of flavored oatmeal, I grab one blueberry bagel and eat it plain - no cream cheese. I like bagels that way with my coffee anyway. My goal is to not get sidetracked with all of the goodies people bring to work and stick to opting for something with fewer calories.

  111. I know a better breakfast can make a better day for me...I usually ditch it all together or eat so late that it messes up my eating schedule and metabolism. To better help this, I need to eat MORE throughout the day, Healthy foods...starting with breakfast. I know the "starve" is not good and the whole DIET thing I am SO tired of. With kids in school I don't worry about feeding myself "normal" anymore until dinner. I'd like to get to a point this year that I can be on track, eat like a normal woman again...where food is just FOOD and not an enemy, enjoy it and let be a tool to improve my rotten health. After that, I can work on getting my MOVE on again and stop being a couch slouch. Having chronic illness doesn't mean you should stop working on yourself just because you have been "dealt" a rotten hand...it means you have to work harder and better at keeping healthy!
    Hope I can put that thought into action!

    thanks!

  120. After years of resolving to simply eat less to try to lose weight (and never being successful), this year I changed my resolution to add to my diet; specifically more fiber. I know I don’t get enough fiber in my diet, so I’m adding high fiber foods to each meal. It is much easier to keep this resolution, and I actually do feel better physically.

  130. There are many changes I'm planning to make, but I'm trying to make them one at a time. This month, I gave up soda to drink more water. Next month, I'll start exercising. Baby steps seem to be the best bet for me!

  140. I'm trying to eat breakfast (more often) in the morning. I'd like to go outside on a daily basis, but haven't made much progress with that yet. Regular walking would do me a world of good and a daily dose of the sun would help me D-deficiency. Thanks for the giveaway.

  152. I’m going to live healthier this year – not fanatically healthier because I won’t stick to it, but I’m going to try to do a little more each day to be healthy.

  154. I'm making better choices by reading food labels, eliminating drive-thru meals *sob* and eliminating all sodas and sweetened beverages. I also make sure to add a fruit or veg to every meal. Just those small changes make a big difference.

  156. I LOVE Jimmy Dean! YUM!! *slurps*
    I'm trying so hard to lose this after-baby weight... shes 8 mo old and I've lost 15 lbs and I have 15 more to go! its a daily struggle to make healthy choices and be active. Hard to make enough time in the day, to take care of the baby and get my other little one to (and from) school, plus take care of myself, 2 dogs, the husband the house, but somehow I manage. (Moms do it everyday, but noone tells you how HARD it is! one was easy, two kids, totally diff! Lordy if I had more! ) Lord, grant me the serenity to not freak out over every little tiny mess. My resolution is to lose this weight!~
    I am eating healthier and trying hard! .. Wish me luck!!! :)
