This post is sponsored by BabbleBoxx .  To help me start the year out on a high note, I received a great box of goodies from BabbleBoxx. I have enjoyed testing out these products, and have been using them pretty much daily. These products range from consumables to items that will help me stay productive throughout the workweek.  What's in the Resolution Reset BabbleBoxx? I'm going to run through these items one by one and explain in further detail how I'm using each of them to help me advance in my health and wellness goals for 2022.  Shaklee : Collagen-9 and Life Shake Soy Protein This BabbleBoxx includes both the Collagen-9 and the Life Shake Soy Protein . I love protein and collagen powders because they're so easy and convenient - great for someone who is constantly on the move! I've mentioned in the past that I have such a tough time consuming as much protein as I need, so products that are gluten-free, convenient, and can be taken as a complete meal are ide...
Just as I've done with my Things I'm Leaving Behind  list, I am following my annual tradition of posting the things I'm bringing with me into the new year. Last year, I picked  EMERGE  as my intention/mantra/word for the year. This year, I picked  EXCELSIOR .

It's the motto of New York (my home away from home), has a bit of a comical history with a sort of misunderstanding of what the word actually means, but has come, in modern times at least, to mean higher.  Last year's list included being more creative, setting boundaries, using my new fitness certifications, and podcasting. While I did a pretty solid job tapping into each of those goals throughout 2021, this year's list looks a little different. Eating More Mindfully I've gotten a lot better about my nutrition over the last two years, but I know I can do even better! I...
As is  tradition here on Flecks of Lex, I'm sharing the things I'm leaving behind in 2021.  Last year, I said I was leaving behind five things: double-booking and overscheduling, clutter, dirty laundry, excuses to not exercise, and weak glutes and bad posture. I think I did a pretty good job with leaving those things behind - though I still have plenty of room for growth on the glute strength and posture improvement.  Here are the five things I'm leaving behind in 2021: Hoarding Luxurious Experiences On New Year's Eve, I saw this tweet , and it was right on time!  The best New Year's resolution I ever made was to start devouring all my nicest things, and save no small pleasure for an unspecified future. Now I burn the good candles, wear the expensive perfume at home, scribble imperfectly in pretty notebooks. You can't pin joy like a moth. — 🌹 Witch Cake 🌹 (@hollycassell) January 1, 2022 In the final days leading up to January 1, 2022, I was cleaning out my l...
