New Years Resolutions and Trop50 Juice Beverage


Do you set resolutions at the start of every new year? I usually don’t, and the reason for that is that I don’t stick to them, and I hate feeling disappointed in myself.

This year, I decided to choose a fairly simple one, and I hope I can stick to it. I want to get more exercise--at least three to four times per week, but preferably five. I used to do yoga almost every day, and I really miss how great I felt afterward. Not only limber and stretchy (?), but it really wakes your mind up, too. I felt smarter!

Cutting calories is a good way to make changes, too. Even small changes can add up and make a big difference! One way I’ve been cutting calories for the last few months is in what I drink. We rarely have soda, so that’s not really an issue, but I do love a tall, cold drink with my lunch and dinner.

My usual “formula” for a cold drink is a lot of ice, 3/4 of a glass of either cold tea or soda water (check your soda water labels for sodium and HFCS-make sure there isn’t any!), and 1/4 lemonade or fruit juice. I like my drinks to be a little sweet, but not too much. Adding the lemonade or juice makes it easier to stay away from too much sweetener. This could be an issue if you’re buying a heavily sweetened lemonade or juice, but I’ve really been enjoying Tropicana Trop50 Juice Beverage! I’d have to say my favorite is the Raspberry Lemonade. It goes so well with iced tea! The Pomegranate Blueberry is a close second! Or maybe the Pineapple Mango. They’re all so good! As I’m writing this, I’m having Trop50 Raspberry Lemonade with raspberry lime soda water. It doesn’t get any more refreshing than that!

Tropicana® Trop50® delivers the goodness of fruit juice with 50 percent less sugar and calories, and no artificial sweeteners. That’s fabulous in my book!
