I never really feels properly like summer until the kids break up from school. Down south (for us) that was on 19th July so now we are officially off! Yay.
We have some plans to visit family and go to the beach so I have stocked up on all my Ultrasun products to keep the family safe. It’s always difficult to gauge exactly how much you will need, but I prefer having too much rather than pay the exorbitant process elsewhere. Particular favourites of ours are the Family SPF 30, the Sports Gel – lots of hairy legs between me and my son! Plus, the Face SPF formulas, which is great as it”s anti-ageing and protecting at the same time.
By the beach, this year, I will be sporting some great Vionic flip flops as I head out to the sea for as much open water swimming as I can fit in. As you may know, I’m getting keen on this wild swimming and plan to swim a lot in the summer, as in August I’m going to swim St. Mary’s loch in the borders of Scotland (and that’s over 5km so I’d better get fit).
One of the things that is helping improve my general fitness and wellbeing is watching my diet. I have been trying to eat a little less from the carbohydrate side of the buffet and a little more from the protein side.
Supplementation has always been a big part of my diet and we at QVC have a great range now! I’m a big fan of Your Zooki and the whole family regularly take their fish oil but Dr Max from Prime Fifty has been a great source of help and information for me and his range is really great. For protein this is just the ticket and when I have been rushing around trying to get things done before I went on hols, this has helped me keep my fizz!
Have a great summer, wherever you get to.
