Is it ironic that I'm too busy to read my book about being busy! Gah, life of the modern woman. I'm trying to be really purposeful this fall. My goals are controlling the email abyss, making my health a priority (aka getting more sleep) and making time to read more. Of course this isn't going to magically happen. I have to have a strategy.
Here's what I'm planning--I'm going to tackle my email with ruthlessness. I will set aside time each day to just sort and delete. I will not multi-task. This means I will not check instagram while simultaneously sorting my inbox.
I'm also cutting down on the number of events I attend. Saying no, lets me focus on the work I've already got and spend time with family. And I can get to bed 30 minutes earlier.
Shopping smarter at the grocery store is also a tactic I'm employing. I'm doing more meal planning and less eating out--especially at lunch time. Making lunch at home is a great way to ensure I'm making smart food decisions. I can skip the jumbo sandwich on a baguette and have a salad. And then dessert. I'm loving Müller yogurt’s new Dessert Inspired flavors. The new flavors HAVE NO high fructose corn syrup, NO artificial flavors, and NO preservatives. The Dessert Inspired flavors feature creamy, signature Müller yogurt on top of a layer of fruit or caramel sauce plus a bonus--a side compartment with delicious crunchy goodies that you can sprinkle on top.

Spiked Apple Cider Pops
September in the South is, in my opinion, still summer. The eighties and nineties always prevail and make the traditional fall flavors that I crave so much slightly out of reach. As much as I want to relax and sip on some hot cider, at the moment, I still need something iced. ...read more

Müller yogurt fits in perfectly with my fall goals. The thick yogurt is decadent to be sure, but it's also a good source of protein and calcium and has 220 calories or less. It’s the perfect snack that has it all for women who do it all.
It's a perfect way to get a mom time out and give yourself a delicious treat. We deserve it ladies. We're working hard. I think this fun video with real-life mom me-moments from The Girls With Glasses sums it up:
New Müller yogurt comes in four flavors: Strawberry Cheesecake, Raspberry Brownie Supreme, Peach Cobbler and Dulce De Leche Delight – look for them on grocery shelves nationwide this month.
This is part of a sponsored post with Müller. All opinions are my own and the yogurt is delicious!
