“I participated in a In-Home Party Activation on behalf of Influence Central for Weight Watchers Sweet Baked Goods. I received product samples to facilitate my review as well as a promotional item to thank me for my participation.”
AHHH it’s bikini season – or for a lot of us moms – last minute dieting seasoning to try and squeeze into something that doesn’t make us look like whales. As I age (gracefully) I’ve realized my metabolism isn’t as kick ass as it used to me – so while I can’t bury myself in a pile of cookies and still look like a model, I still like to have a little indulging here and there. What is life without the good parts?
So I decided to try a little research on a couple of my mom friends who are diligently trying to get ready for some beach vacations (myself included!). They are always trying to starve themselves and wonder why (1) they’re miserable and (2) not losing any weight.
So we taste tested some treats – and I think we all agree these little Salted Carmel Brownie Bliss bars by Weight Watchers were an unexpected delight. They’re only 90 calories (2 pts in Weight Watchers) and individually wrapped so you can live a little with your sweet tooth without feeling like you’ve totally blown all that hard work you went through. This is a great reality check:
4 Tips To Love Your Food
1. Don’t restrict yourself. Everything in moderation. Carry a few of these perfect sized Weight Watcher treats with you in case you get a craving you just can’t pass up. That way you won’t be tempted by that massive blueberry bagel in the window when you grab your morning coffee.
2. Don’t think of food as food, but as fuel. Remember our picky toddler eaters? They only eat when they’re hungry – they aren’t starving. They aren’t stress eating or bored eating. Before you reach for that calorie killer – think are you really hungry or just stressed?
3. Drink more water. You hear it all the time, but it’s proven that on a daily basis, most of us aren’t consuming enough water. Many parts of the world don’t have the luxury of unlimited fresh clean water everyday, and we take it for granted. Start pouring yourself a glass more often, and you’ll also see you won’t be as hungry.
4. Mind who you eat with. If you dine with people who say F IT! I’m going for a burger and fries, you’re going to do the same. Try to eat with “healthy” eaters that will keep you on track. Same as if you smoke or drink – if you avoid them, you won’t fell inclined to participate in bad habits – eating junk is a bad habit!
