Getting Ready for Swimsuit Season

“This shop is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group™ and Dr. Pepper Snapple Group but all my opinions are my own. #pmedia #TENways

This time of year comes on pretty quickly. The panic of summer and bathing suit season looming in the near future (even though it is snowing as I type this!) It’s always this time where I try to start to make small changes. I am the type of person, that if I make huge changes in my diet, I am more likely to crash. Small change, baby steps are where its at for me! 

I looooooove soda pop. Like really, really love it. I could drink it any time of the day. Most people have a coffee in the morning, I am content having a soda. With that in mind, a small change in that area is a good start to help get my body bathing suit ready! Lucky for me and all of my soda loving friends, Dr. Pepper Snapple Group (DPSG) just came out with Four Ten DPSG Calorie Products! They can be found at your local WalMart. They only have ten calories (yes, only 10!) but still taste like regular soda. My husband even loves them, which is a huge step for him, considering he acts as though he is dying when he drinks any diet soda! And did I mention only 10 calories (I know, I did!) per serving- and the serving is actually the whole can, not just 5 sips of the can! The Four Ten DPSG Calorie Products come in four flavors too- Sunkist, 7UP, A&W, and Canada Dry. 

With having an 18 month old home with me, it seems like we are always on the go- every day there is an errand to run, a place to be, something to purchase. She is SO active and keeps me on the go all the time and makes getting out the door a production (what child doesn’t). I always like to grab a quick drink or a snack to take along with me, so I am less tempted to stop somewhere while I am out and get something I would regret eating later! 

Maybe this is the fashionista in me, but anytime I take a drink with me from home, I almost treat it as an additional accessory. Seriously- something simple like having a cute drink to carry with me gives me a little extra kick in my step (especially if I know it is helping me stay healthy). 

(and yes, I am writing about getting swimsuit ready and it is snowing in these pictures. Snowing! And please excuse the no smiling- I have Bells Palsy! Crazy, and hope it doesn’t last too long!)

I try to drink mostly water with my dinner, just to make sure I get in as much as possible, but I do like to treat myself every once in a while with my dinner and having something like this doesn’t make me feel guilty! (and thank you Ella for letting me use one of your straws!)

If you want to add any of these delish drinks, be on the lookout for a WalMart coupon coming out today (through 4/17), for $.50 off two 2 liter bottles or two 4 pack cans (while supplies last)! You can follow DPSG on facebook and twitter for more savings too!

    I love the jacket too & was going to ask where it's from!I keep seeing this pop and want to try it! I like Cherry Coke Zero as a treat once in a while, because it tastes the most like "real" pop, but these would be even tastier! 🙂 Thank you for sharing!
