I love this time of year. Summer is almost here and I start to set my goals for the rest of the year. One of my favorite things to do as the warm weather approaches is to review my summer wardrobe. If there are items I have not worn in a while, I donate them to charity. Then, I reward myself with a few new purchases.
Bright colors with bold patterns are my go-to pieces this year. Flowing textiles that are lightweight are great for summer heat. As a woman over 40 (I know I don’t look a day over 29), I am not a big fan of shorts. I love a pair of palazzo pants. I also want to keep my skin and eyes protected with a sunhat and sunglasses. Don’t you love these?
In addition to revamping my style for summer, I reset my health and fitness goals. It’s challenging to get through summer without craving treats like ice cream. I was so excited to find out about the new line of ice cream novelties from Weight Watchers®.
New products include Dark Chocolate Mint, Snack-Size Salted Caramel and Snack-Size Mocha Latte Ice Cream Bars. This week, I tried the Dark Chocolate Mint and I am in HEAVEN!! They are so delicious! They look cute with my outfit too! There are three new varieties that come in convenient snack-size portions so I can still treat myself when I have ice cream cravings (which is pretty much all summer long).
While these treats may be low in calories and saturated fat, they are still big on taste. At only 45-90 calories per treat, I can have one, or maybe even two, from time to time. They also contain no artificial sweeteners, which is important to me.
What makes you feel happy and healthy for summer? Another little secret of mine… a new pair of shoes and a pedicure with a pop of color!
