Fitness | De-Carb GCX Coffee Bean & Green Tea Extracts for Ultimate Weight Loss

 De-Carb GCX Coffee Bean & Green Tea Extracts

I was in my local Sams Club when I saw a huge display with towers of these bottles everywhere and tasting cups for us to try this product.  I have to say that anything that has to do with weightloss will grab my attention no matter what store i'm in.  So I ventured over and picked up a cup and gave it a try.  It was very tasty and all I could really taste was the green tea flavor.

Fitness | How I lost 10lbs and Maintained my Weight Loss

How I lost 10lbs and Maintained my Weight Loss

This is so emotional for me because i've been struggling with my weight ever since I hit menopause. It's been fluxuating up and down like a seesaw and i've never seen an actual real life improvement until now.  Just to give you a little insight, i'm 54yrs old and i'm 5'7", my highest weight was at 145lbs. I couldn't fit in any of my size 4 jeans so I basically only wore stretch pants and leggings.  I was exercising twice a day and I still couldn't get my weight past 145lbs for the life of me, no matter how hard I tried. Enter juicing.  I wrote a post on New Year's Day, which you can read HERE about changing my lifestyle and incorporating juicing into my daily nutritional routine.

Fitness | How I Maintain my Weight Through Cardio & Weightlifting

 How I Maintain my Weight Through Cardio & Weightlifting

I was inspired to take these photos and write this post as a result of the backlash from all the haters who tore into Maria Kang for the photo she posted of herself and her boys on her Facebook page.  I think she's beautiful, toned and fit and has a tremendous amount of self love and respect for herself. Haters will never understand that kind of self-love because they have never leaned it.  I'm 54 years old and I absolutely love my body and staying healthy and fit.  I will never be a size 0 nor will I be a size 16, but I will always be healthy and fit as long as I am in this body.

If you're new to the walking bandwagon and want to know what i'm talking about, read the posts below and watch the video included in the post. I wrote an in-dept Blog Post about wrapping with Albolene with more photos when I first started my journey. You can read more about it HERE.

Fitness | 30-day Fitness Challenge Results ~ Featuring "Firm Me Up" Anti-Cellulite Cream (Part 2)

Firm Me Up Anti-Cellulite Cream
 In June I was contacted by UP Beauty Solution-based Skinscare Inc., located in Los Angeles, CA.  inviting me to try their Firm Me Up Anti-Cellulite Cream for a 30-day challenge, well  I jumped at the chance.  I also wrote a lengthy Blog post with lots of before photos, you can read about my initial Firm Me Up challenge here.

I applied the cream religiously to my thigh area every night before I retired.  I waited until after I showered because the PR rep told me that the cream reacts better if the body is nice and warm.  Some nights I even wrapped my thighs with saran wrap to intensify the heat.

Fitness | Lose Unwanted Inches Walking and Wrapping with Albolene

Lose Unwanted Inches Walking and Wrapping with Albolene

I'm truly a firm believer of wrapping my body with Albolene and saran wrap for weight lost and burning fat.  I spoke in-depth about it in several blog posts HERE and HERE with more photos when I first started my weight loss journey.  My body stores fat because i've reached a certain age where i'm supposed to have a cushion if you will.  My body doesn't know any better so every little morsel of food I eat stores as fat.

Fitness | Is Albolene Really Effective for Weight Loss and Removing Cellulite?

Albolene for Weight Loss & Removing Cellulite

I've been using Albolene for removing unwanted cellulite for well over a year now. It all started when I vaguely heard someone in my Yoga class mention that Albolene had helped them shed unwanted cellulite from their waist after using it for a period of time with a waist belt. Well, i'm one of those people that can't take anyone's word, I have to try everything for myself. So I placed my order for the Waist Belt and for the Albolene and could't wait for it to arrive. There's another option that does the same thing called Sweet Sweat which I discovered after using Albolene for awhile but never tried it.
