Summer Slim Down with Walmart
DPSG Ten Calorie Beverages

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 http://my-disclosur.es/OBsstV

I'm not even going to pretend I'm one of those people who doesn't drink soda. Mama needs her caffeine. I do limit myself to one a day, two if I'm feeling extra stabby. I think I do a decent job of balancing my soda intake with my water intake. I could always do better though. In addition to soda, my other weakness would definitely be eating ALL THE CARBS. Now that bikini season is right around the corner, I'm trying to cut down on the naughty stuff.

Thanks to Dr. Pepper Snapple Group's (DPSG) TEN beverages, you don’t have to sacrifice flavor for less calories. The DPSG Ten sodas come in four great flavors you already know and love -- Ten A&W, Ten 7Up, Ten Sunkist, and Ten Canada Dry Ginger Ale. Seriously, each of these drinks only has 10 calories! I picked mine up at Walmart.

I'm lucky to have a high metabolism, for now anyway. If I watch what I eat and exercise, I can lose weight fairly easily. Here are a few simple tips I plan to enforce for the next few weeks in order to feel comfortable in my two-piece this summer.

1. Drink healthier
Water is obviously the best choice, but sometimes I need a little flavor. This is where the DPSG Ten beverages come in. With only ten calories, I can enjoy a cold, refreshing beverage without feeling guilty for not reaching for the H20. And even though they have less calories, they still have FULL FLAVOR.

2. Eat healthier
I'm the worst when it comes to eating a healthy breakfast. I'm always in a rush, so I either don't have time or eat something bad simply because it's quick. Two cups of coffee and Donettes are not a wise breakfast choice. Once I start a precedent by eating healthy first thing, it usually helps me stay focused throughout the rest of my day.

3. Quit unhealthy snacking
On days I eat poorly at mealtime, I end up snacking more. We're not talking about fruit and yogurt either. I'm having potato chips. When I have three well-balanced meals, I don't feel the need to reach for the bad stuff that only temporarily satisfies my hunger.

4. Get moving
You don't need a gym membership to exercise. I've got hand weights, a medicine ball and an elliptical in my bedroom. There's simply no excuse for not exercising when I can catch up on my shows while burning fat. I also plan to get outside and take my dogs on longer walks. Good for them. Good for me.

The two key factors for me when trying to diet and exercise are:
1. Slow down.
2. Make the time.

I am very excited to hear they have Canada Dry with only 10 calories! I love ginger ale, but hate the caloric value.

I've tried the 7up and I really like it. It's not as sweet as the regular full-sugar stuff.

I've had the root beer, ginger ale, and Sunkist orange, and they are delicious! Thanks for the coupon :)

PS Diet AW Root Beer and Cream Soda tastes awesome with Vanilla Vodka - I bet the 10 calorie version would be AWESOMER!!!

Yeah I just said a fake word to describe how tasty it would be! ox
