Ladies, I am sure we are all aware that winter is approaching by the extra chill we have been experiencing in the mornings and nights. Time to put the spray tans, shorts, summer dresses, fresh fruit and razors away! Yes, we tend to let ourselves go in winter due to the fact we cover ourselves up from head to toe. We tend to let our hair grow and our figure slide by indulging in hot roasts, pasta with creamy sauces, hot chocolates and take away. It is simply too cold outside to go for a walk or go to the gym, and we tend to not worry as we layer ourselves up and no one can tell if you have put on a few pounds. What women really want are ideas for keeping slim in winter without being exposed to the chilli elements and wearing warm clothes that don’t make you look like a Michelin man!
Invest in some warm, good quality jeans, tights and pants. These types of clothing can be worn with anything! It is also smart to invest in some good quality knits (wool) if possible and thick, warm trench coats. Want to wear a dress? No problem, buy some opaque tights and wear them underneath (at least you won’t have to worry about how white your legs are) – and a good quality trench coat never goes astray. Usually when your hands and feet are warm; you keep warm, so buy some gloves and stylish boots to keep toasty and fashionable
You can still eat yummy hot foods during the winter months, just remember that if you eat healthy now, you will be ready for shorts season as soon as the temperature rises! Apart from drinking plenty of water, drink hot green teas, cook roast chicken instead of roast pork, or grill some fresh fish. You can also participate exercising inside without having to go outside. Invest in a yoga dvd or pilates or even a treadmill. Ultimately, winter is about snuggling and relaxing at home on the weekend instead of going out, so enjoy yourself, and indulge in what you like just in small proportions.
