I was so excited when I was selected to be a part of #CollectiveBias new shop because it translated my own journey to taking the extra steps to improve my health, changing my morning routine. While working on my New Year Goals, fitness and eating healthy were the top priority on my list, but I wanted to set goals within reach.
I realized that starting a new morning routine was going to be essential to help me reach those goals. I had to switch my bagel and cream cheese or toast for something healthier to give me that boost to start my day with energy to do more and be more!
After being introduced to Belvita Bites and V8 Veggie Blends, always having fresh fruits also became a priority, especially after my son was diagnosed with high blood pressure and pre-diabetes. Being healthy became a necessity, more than a wish or a meaningless goal.
After years of dealing with my family hereditary tendency to obesity and high blood pressure, the undesired news propelled me to move even more strongly towards my goals and extend them to my whole family!
We went to Target to purchase the items which would boost my goals and help us with some extra morning energy! Luckily, they were offering a demo of the products I had in mind, which was a special treat!
We found the BelVita Bites which satisfy that crunchy and carb craving I usually have early in the morning, making a great substitute to my previous choices!
The V8 Veggie Blends introduces delicious blends of vegetables with a touch of fruit from V8®. These healthy beverages contain 75% juice, 1 full serving of vegetables per 8oz serving, and are an excellent source of antioxidant vitamins A, C, & E. But my favorite is that each 8oz. serving is 60 calories or less, with no sugar added and no artificial colors, flavors, or preservatives, exactly what I was looking for and my son needs.
They come in four deliciously blended flavors, but my son and I bought Carrot Mango, Purple Power which contains the juices of Purple Carrots, Beets and Apple and Golden Goodness which contains the juices of Yellow Carrots, Sweet Potatoes, Orange Carrots, and Orange.
Just in case you are as excited as I am! I wanted to share some special offers available at Target:
BelVita http://cartwheel.target.com/offer/25459 – Offer available now until 1/31.
V8 https://cartwheel-secure.target.com/offer/26642 – Offer starts on 2/23
We also decided, in sync with keeping our goals within reach to purchase and wear a device which can be tracked by an app. I bought my son a children’s device which has a mascot pushing him to move and exercise! His device can be clipped to his shoe and mine is a bracelet.
It monitors our exercise, steps, water calorie intake. I’m truly loving it and moving more just so I can see my progress on my phone!
I signed my son up for basketball and he made a commitment to either use our treadmill or bike for 20 minutes a day as additional efforts to reach our health goals!
I joined a Yoga studio and will start classes next week, which I’m truly excited about! Every morning will represent a new morning win, one step at a time! I will keep you posted on my progress and how much fun we’re having, on our social media channels! Check them out!
What are your health goals? What are you doing to be more active and healthier? I can’t wait to hear your story!
Excellent post! I believe in Yoga. I wake up early in the morning and start with my yoga sessions. It keeps me energized throughout the day.
I have never had Belvita before but I have heard great things about them. I have have a friend who has them every morning.
I love a good morning routine! I like waking up and letting my dog out while the coffee maker brews. And then I get to think about what I will do for the day. It’s a good way to start the day!
Good for you! I’ve always liked the regular v8 vegetable juice but I admit I had no idea they had so many options.
I love Belvita and V8! I didn’t know that Belvita has the bite sized ones! I have to get some

I haven’t tried either of these before. I’ll have to be on the lookout for them. Thanks for the heads-up!
I haven’t tried the V8 yet, but that sounds exactly like something I would enjoy. The snacks too. I want it all!

I would love to try some of that V8 I am always looking for ways to spruce up my liquid intake!
My dad LOVES V-8, I’ll have to get him hooked on those cookies, too!! YUM!
YUM! Thanks for those coupons–will definitely try it out!
Very nice post, I like the idea of the app and the bracelet. Thanks for participating in this shop #client
I love those BelVita cookies, but I haven’t seen the bites before.
These are great items to jump start your morning! Awesome!
I love the belvita breakfast crackers for times when I don’t have time for breakfast. I love that they come in little bites now.

I actually picked up a box of those BelVita bites last week and they were wicked good. They are an awesome, delicious way to start off the day!
