4 Simple Ways I Prep For My Morning Walk

This post has been sponsored by Danone US, LLC. All thoughts and opinions are my own.


I literally feel like I’ve been planning dates with myself every morning. It’s just me, nature and my bar cart, stocked with some morning snacks.

On my cart are muffins, plus an International Delight® OREO® Iced Coffee 15 oz. Can, and an International Delight® Caramel Macchiato Iced Coffee 15 oz. Can. Now that the weather has warmed up, I’ve swapped my hot brew for the yummy taste of International Delight® Iced Coffee. Shop now at Dollar General for everyday low prices and to get 3 cans for $6.

These on-the-go cans from International Delight® make it easier to sneak quietly out the door for a walk in the early mornings, without waking anyone. Adding these to my Dollar General grocery list means I can get the cold and creamy taste of caramel macchiato with the International Delight® Caramel Macchiato Iced Coffee flavor, plus, I can get the taste of OREO® cookies and coffee together with the International Delight® OREO® Iced Coffee flavor — both of which I can enjoy at home!

Carving out a few minutes each morning to get it together is a priority and a treat. I love my family, but this woman needs to enjoy her morning time in peace. With a full house, that often means getting up early to pull it off. The moments spent alone outside help me be a better wife, mom and person.

4 Simple Ways I Prep For My Morning Walk

My morning routine includes time outside, for at least twenty minutes, before my family wakes up. I like to get out of the house quietly to think, journal, enjoy some coffee and me time.

Brewing coffee and making a full breakfast complicates things, which is why I love the ease of International Delight® Iced Coffee from Dollar General. The 15 oz. cans are the perfect size and easy to grab from the fridge for morning walks.

With my bar cart already outside on the deck, all I do is grab a can of the International Delight® Iced Coffee flavor I’m craving that morning. I put it on the bar cart with muffins or fruit to eat before or after my walk.

International Delight® Iced Coffee cans are convenient to grab and go, and also have a delicious taste. The flavors have the right balance of creaminess to coffee that I crave when I’m on the go. These are made with real cream, milk and cane sugar, which give them that great taste.

I love having enough property to sip my International Delight® Iced Coffee while relaxing, walking and enjoying my backyard.

How I Prep for my Morning Walk

To make getting out of the house without waking anyone, I prep a few things beforehand.

  1. I take out something easy to slip into the night before. Something simple like a light sweater and leggings for cooler mornings or a flowy dress for warmer mornings.
  2. I keep a food & beverage cart on the deck where I can place fruit, muffins and coffee; but still have space on the patio table to spread out my journals, books and devices.
  3. I gather up my journals, headphones, books, etc. in one location—making them easy to find in the morning. Placing them in a tote bag or box works when I have to grab a lot.
  4. I make sure to add grab-and-go items to the grocery list, so I can enjoy my morning routine without feeling like I need to rush back inside because I’m hungry.

Taking some time to shop and prepare beforehand is the key to making this routine a lasting one.
