Keep Your New Year’s Resolutions with Lower Calorie Wine

Disclosure – “I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for Brancott Estate Flight Song. I received product samples and a promotional item to thank me for my participation.”

Brancott Estate Flight Song Wine

Instead of New Year’s Resolutions I like to write down my goals and priorities for the new year so that I’m more likely to stick to the plan. This year my two biggest goals are to get my home better organized and to lose ten pounds. To help lose the weight I’m walking several miles a day and keeping track of everything I eat. Once I started keeping track of my daily caloric intake I was amazed at quickly it adds up during the day. The food log has sure been motivating me to eat less and to make better use of the calories I do get.

Brancott Estate Flight Song Wine

There are a few things I would never give up but I plan to do in moderation instead – ice cream, cheese and wine! When I found out that Brancott Estate Flight Song wines have 20% less calories than similar selections of Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Grigio I had to try them out. My friend Theresa and I had a little wine tasting party and we decided that both of the wines are delicious. Both were light, fruity and flavorful without being overly sweet.

Brancott Estate Flight Song Wine

I will definitely buy more Brancott Estates Flight Song wine and I won’t feel guilty at all when I add it to my calorie intake log for the day. Between increasing my activity and decreasing calories I’m planning to lose the weight without depriving myself so I know that it will be easier to reach my goal and to maintain the goal weight. It is estimated that 75% of people break their resolutions after just one week, so I’m excited to have instead made some lifestyle changes that have been much easier to stick to. I think the best part of the plan though is to have a bottle handy while I’m organizing my closets and kitchen!

Train Smarter with Jabra Sport Pulse Wireless Earbuds

Disclosure – This is a sponsored post and I have been compensated in the form of a Best Buy Gift Card, however all thoughts and opinions are my own.

Jabra Pulse Wireless Earbuds

When they first came out I got one of those smart pedometers that I wear every day and I love being able to track my activity and log my weight and food intake so much that I bought another one for my mom. I think it’s incredible how much technology has impacted fitness and training – I use my smartphone daily to map my walks and keep track of my steps. I keep track of calories burned and consumed by logging what I eat and I also track fluctuations in my weight to monitor progress on my goals.

Jabra Pulse Wireless Earbuds

Now there are brand new Jabra Sport Pulse Wireless Earbuds that take training to the next level and help you get the ultimate wireless workout.  Jabra Sport Pulse Wireless is an all-in-one training solution that combines an in-ear biometric heart rate monitor, immersive Dolby® Digital sound and real-time voice coaching and it’s made to US Military grade durability certifications.

It has a built-in intelligent app – Jabra Sport Life – so exercisers can get the most out of their Sport Pulse Wireless earbuds, helping them plan, track and evaluate each workout.  It has never been so easy to test fitness levels and aerobic capacity, adjust heart rate zone levels to optimize training, and set goals based on distance, time or calories burned. The Jabra Sport is compatible with smartphones that have Bluetooth capabilities. I’m super excited to check out the Jabra Sport Pulse Wireless at Best Buy for myself so I can also keep track of my heart rate while I exercise.
