Sticking With My New Year, New Me Resolution!

Hey All!

In my look back at 2015 post, I shared how I was making a resolution to get myself happy and healthy in 2016. Well, I’m sticking with my new year, new me resolution and I’m getting a little help thanks to the amazing folks at JCPenney! I headed over to JCPenney this past weekend and got myself a Nuband Women’s Smart Activity-Tracking Sport Watch in pink and a Cooks 5-in-1 Metallic Power Blender. They are going to help me to live healthier and better, so I can improve my lifestyle and daily routine! It’s already working I’m happy to say!

I’m in love with these two healthy lifestyle aids and I haven’t stopped using them since I got them. Whether you are looking for the perfect workout outfit, accessories or equipment, or revamping your kitchen appliances to accommodate a new diet, JCPenney has everything you need to refresh your diet and exercise regimen no matter your budget. The Cooks 5-in-1 Metallic Power Blender was on sale for super cheap and so was the Nuband. I hit the healthy living jackpot when I went shopping this past weekend.

I got the blender, because I wanted to make my own version of green juice and some smoothies easily. I wanted something which I could make and take my drinks on the go instantly. Having this little baby does just that! I can blend my juice easily and quickly in the blending cup, put the little plastic comfort lip ring on the edge of the cup, and head out the door. It’s super quick and I love using it to make my green juice.

Green Juice

My green juice recipe (in case you were wondering) is:


  • 2 Leaves of Organic Kale (just use the leaf part not the stalk)
  • 4 Leaves of Organic Spinach
  • 1/2 cup Unsweetened Almond Milk
  • 1/2 Organic Lemon with out peel and seeds
  • 2 Sprigs of Organic Mint Leaf
  • 1 Whole Organic Apple of any kind peeled.
  • Small Slice of Organic Ginger Root

I use organic products, but you can use regular fruits and veggies as well.


Place 2 Leaves of Kale, 4 Leaves of Spinach, 1/2 Lemon with out peel and seeds, 2 Sprigs of Mint Leaf, 1 Whole Apple, and one Small Slice of Ginger Root into the Cooks blending cup. Place the blender blade onto the cup and twist it on securely. Place the cup on the blender and secure it.

You push down on the cup and blend the contents a little. You then open the cup and pour in the 1/2 cup Almond Milk. You then blend completely, add the comfort lip ring and go! It’s super easy to make and it’s such a healthy way to start my day.

Thanks to my Cooks 5-in-1 power blender, I can make healthy morning drink to start my day with out the mess and fuss. It’s been such a great help in keeping me on my healthy new me regimen.

My Nuband Women’s Pink Silicone Strap Sport Watch is also helping me keep my resolution as it’s helping me keep track of my fitness. It tells me how many steps I’ve taken in a day, how many calories I’ve burned and how many hours I’ve slept. I of course had to get it in pink, because hello… I’m Brite & Bubbly!

With these new tools from JCPenney and this new regimen of healthy eating, juicing, eating less sugar, and adding more fitness through out the day, I’m keeping my new year, new me resolution and feeling very proud of myself for doing so. I’m losing weight, feeling healthier, and sleeping better! It’s great to have the tools I need to keep this going all year long!
