Get Slim & Trim Before Getting Into That Swimsuit

If you are anything like us, we tend to over-indulge in winter. Why? Because whose going to even notice? And then a few days into September you start realising that summer is approaching and you need to get your act together! And then you spend the majority of September planning your ‘Slim Down Fast’ routine. By the time you have completed that, VOILA! It’s mid-October. Welcome to reality…

But don’t you worry, us ladies at Life Retreat have you covered for the summer slim down!!

First things first: Get rid of all the junk in your house

The easiest way to get started with your health plan, is to remove any and all tempation that might set you back. Having chips, sweets and chocolates lying around the house means there is a lot of room for indulging in those. We think, if you are surrounded by healthy foods, you don’t notice that there isnt anything unhealthy to snack on. And if your sugar craving kicks in, it is more of a mission to get in your car and go to the shops, than to try curb the craving with some fruit.

Drink Water!!!!!!

Just make your new best friend H20. This is my ultimate weight loss tip! Your body needs to be hydrated to lose weight, and you can do this by drinking lots of water. You will also get rid of all the waste and toxins in your body by cleaning your system. Water is also great for clearing up bad skin.


For some people, this is the worst part of getting slim. Not all of us are born athletes, and have the extra time to spend hours in the gym. But thats not even necessary anyway. Try take 3-4 days out of your week, and for 1 hour do something you enjoy like running on the beach (or around your neighbourhood), do some yoga, play tennis. Anything! Exercise is so good to start your day with, it also clears your mind and makes you extra productive.

Use a quality firming lotion: Juliette Armand Thermoslim Gel

    Oh no it’s that time of year again for me! This winter was not too bad on my because it wasn’t so cold as previous years but here’s my tip that is the same as yours: swap water for everything. if you feel the need for a snack, drink a big bottle of water. The water retention fills your stomach and makes you less hungry. happy slimming everyone
