My #MorningWin + belVita Gift Pack Giveaway

Guys, guys, guys… I’m not handling this transition to a caffeine-free life very well. Getting out of bed without a jolt of electricity is near ’bout impossible!

(Those of you who don’t know, I’m breaking a lifelong diet soda habit and I’m a saddy.)

So when my alarm goes off, I reset it about three or four times, until finally an hour and a half or three later, I’ve got two eyes open and I’m staring at the ceiling. But now what? Well, what I’ve been doing is — off with the old pajamas and into the shower, then right back into a fresh pair of jammies. I’ve got a pajama problem.

But hey now y’all, this morning…. I had a #MorningWin! I got out of my pajamas for the first time all week (and never mind the fact it was just yoga pants).  A morning win is a morning win!

I even put on a sweatshirt, some shoes and a coat and left my house in a car with a snack. *gasp*

What am I crunching on, you ask? Oh my dear lovelies, I consider that another morning win – belVita Breakfast Biscuits! I’ve got the crunchy blueberry biscuits and they’re so stinkin’ good!


I can’t decide whether I like the crunchy breakfast biscuits or the soft baked breakfast bars better. The soft baked are like giant soft and delicious cookies. I tried them in banana bread and cinnamon. Both are ridiculously good, but cinnamon is my fave.

So maybe just maybe, I’m going to survive this non-caffeinated life after all. Waking up and enjoying a belVita breakfast sure helps ease the sting.
