Good morning!  This Fitness Friday I am going to be talking about one of my favorite things...COFFEE! So if you are newer around here.. my blog name is Coffee and Hugs.. because that is what I run on most days... ONLY coffee and hugs!! 

I get a TON of questions about my morning coffee and what I put into it!  Honestly, when I did my bikini competition, I had to cut all of my creamer in my coffee and the only thing allowed in my coffee was Truvia.  And while tolerable.. I enjoy my morning coffee and vanilla creamer. So I have been looking for creamers that aren't too horrible and without so many chemicals!  And found this!!

The ingredients are cream, nonfat milk, cane sugar and natural flavor!  A little bit goes a LONG way with this, as well!!  As you can tell, I like creamer.. and I like my coffee to be light.  You know, a little coffee with my creamer!  I also use Truvia in my coffee.  I should be using just sugar.. but I would use too much.  So I use Truvia!  You can use any green sweetener, called Stevia.  WalMart and Aldi has it too (I believe).

We're pretty serious about our morning coffee.  Even in Addi's Melissa & Doug wooden coffee set!

I do treat myself twice a month (or so) to a Dunkin Donut's French Vanilla Iced Coffee.  Oh my word.. it is good!  I get the full sugar.. with cream!  And it is just a treat!  Not an everyday coffee!  If you're going to grab a blended coffee numerous times a week, and you want to lose weight, then I would suggest that you try to cut back.  You would save money and calories!

Also, my favorite container for my coffee are my Tervis coffee mugs!  With little hands around, it is a MUST to have something with a lid!  They have the cutest patterns/images on them and it makes me happy!!

This is just what has worked for me!  I am not a trainer, and I'm not quite sure if this would be trainer approved.  But I have come to the realization that life is all about BALANCE and being HAPPY.  If a little creamer makes you happy in your morning coffee then GO FOR IT!!!  Life is short.. live it happy, and with vanilla creamer!

Thanks for stopping by!
