Healthier Everyday S’mores Alternatives

Happy┬áNational S’mores Day!

S’mores are essential in my house during the summer. My husband makes them over his fire pit. But he’s so hardcore that he also makes them regularly in the microwave after dinner. He’s a s’mores addict.

Now I certainly can’t eat them as often as my husband. I’d gain 5 pounds in a week. Not cool. I do, however, frequent s’more flavored treats that are a bit less in Weight Watcher points. Here are some of my favorites!

My favorite bar, by far (HEY, I’m rhyming) is the Clif Kid Z Bar. These are marketed to kids, but I love them myself. In fact, not even sure my kid has even had them. I tend to hoard them and eat them all in secret.

Luna Bars! I love these bars. I lived off Luna Bars when I was in college. The s’mores flavor has always been one of my favorites.For a quick meal replacement, I like Think Thin bars. I wouldn’t eat these everyday, but they’re good in a pinch. The s’mores flavor is one of the better ones.This candle just makes me happy. And it’s calorie free! ­čÖé In my opinion, Bath and Body Works candles are starting to surpass Yankee Candles. AH! There, I said it.

Now, I don’t own this pillow, but it sure is cute. I would totally snuggle with it.So there you have it. Enjoy National S’mores Day any way you want. Splurge and have the real deal, or snuggle with a s’mores scented pillow. Either way, enjoy the summer while it’s still here!



Late Weigh In and Friday Favorites

It’s been a couple of weeks since I’ve checked in with a loss, but here it is! Very happy to be that much closer to my goal weight. Only a few more pounds to go.

I’m crediting A LOT of my weight loss to Weight Watchers new focus on protein. Every morning I drink a chocolate┬áPremier Protein shake, either in my iced coffee or on its own. They’re really good and with 30 grams of protein, keep me pretty full. I’m not a huge meat eater so these shakes have been game changers for me and protein intake.

Anywho…here are my favorite from around the web this week!

Kate Middleton’s outfits from her recent travels. She’s so classy. I don’t really have a desire to ever dress so fancy so often, but I’m still envious of her wardrobe. And her hair. haha.

Seth Meyers take on the week.┬áBecause you have to laugh. ­čÖé

Interesting ready on the safety of boxed macaroni and cheese. This is a staple in our house. When I can, I make a big batch of homemade mac and cheese, but honestly, life gets busy. I buy the blue box or store brand.

Since I’ve been losing a good bit of weight and the summer heat has been soaring, I’ve noticed that I’m wearing a lot more dresses. Mostly light, t-shirt dresses and I get them all off Amazon. Seriously. I JUST discovered clothes shopping on Amazon and I may never go to a mall again. So convenient and so cheap.

Love. This. Levaca dress. So. Much. It’s so flowy and comfortable. Perfect for warm days. Twirls well too. I have it in dark grey and want it in every color available.

This Zeagoo dress is perfect for summer events, like weddings or parties. I paired mine with a black belt just to hide the middle seam.

Tank dress. Hot summer. Enough said.

Have a great Friday, everyone!
