It’s hard to believe we are already in the third month of a new year. 2014 is whizzing by – whoever is in charge of the space/time continuum, please slow it down a bit. I want to enjoy every moment. And I’m still trying hard to keep my new year’s goal to exercise daily…but it’s hard to find the time to fit in a decent workout every single day of the week.
Adding a workout to my routine has been one of the best new things I have done so far this year. I now have an elliptical machine that makes it easy for me to exercise at home. It is convenient, but still requires the commitment to carve out a little bit of “me time” every day…some days, that can be a challenge! My family, my work, my house, my dogs…something demands Mom’s attention just about 24/7. I’m sure you can relate!
But, being physically fit is really important to me and helps me feel better, too. And feeling good about myself helps me be a better mom and better person in general. Trying new ways to make my fitness goals happen helps keep exercise fun.
I also like to discover new foods that help me have the energy I want every day. Quaker® sent me samples of their Cherry Pistachio Real Medleys Oatmeal+ made with sweet, sun-ripened cherries, roasted almonds, pistachios and wholesome grains. Breakfast just got a whole lot more convenient for me.
Quaker Real Medleys Oatmeal+ comes in its own little portable cup, so you just add water and microwave. 45 seconds later, breakfast is ready!
In addition to the Cherry Pistachio Oatmeal+, which, by the way, is a delicious combination, there are other flavors: Apple Walnut, Summer Berry, Blueberry Hazelnut and Peach Almond. I love berries in my oatmeal, so Summer Berry has become a fast favorite.
It’s a great time to try something new when it is so easy to prepare and tastes so good. I don’t always have time to cook breakfast, so the Real Medleys Oatmeal+ is a convenient option, especially when I am on the go.
The Real Medleys Oatmeal+ fits perfectly in my vehicle’s cupholder, which makes it very convenient for eating breakfast in the car. And that usually happens when we are running behind schedule to get somewhere in the mornings.
Making time for breakfast, making time for me. Maybe in March I’ll do even better at both. I’m going to make my new year’s exercise goal stick!

What a great opportunity. I was provided with a free cup of Quaker Real Medleys Oatmeal+ so that I could provide my honest opinion about this product. This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Quaker. The opinions and text are all mine.
