Well, warmth is finally here and this mid section mound in between my boobs and thighs (no doublt filled with post-yummy desserts & snacks) just won't deflate. I've been trying with a great deal of sensible effort to lose this extra belly fat before it was picture taking time. I confess....I've been a bit agitated about having to bare arms (and legs, and full body parts). I committed to the resurgence of early mornning power walks and advanced workout classes to jump start these fat cells into shape. Frustratingly (is that even a word?), nothing I've tried has worked. Until 2 days ago.....
I must be living in a cocoon, because I'd never heard of the red wine vinegar boost for weight loss. I'm never a fan of these "lose 100 pounds in one day" type gimmicks. But, I thought I'd give it a try.
So, I'm pleased to report to the world and to others struggling with the same challenges, I've lost 2 pounds in 2 days. The belly fat has been significantly reduced and my appetite has taken a dive. I'm still eating healthy though...oatmeal, fruits, veggies and protein throughout the day - just not as much. All is takes (first thing in the morning) is: 2 tablespoons of red wine vinegar, 1 teaspoon of honey and a little warm water to mix.
My research tells me that red wine vinegar is actually healthy for you, especially if you have diabetic symptoms. It's been known to lower blood pressure, cholesterol levels and even the great Dr. Oz recommends it. It's natural, not harmful and works. I'm hooked.
See you at the beach (I'll be the one with the fierce 2-piece swimsuit on).
I had a long talk with my mirror this morning. I told her I wanted to see some improvements around here immediately - and we may as well start with cellulite. Rather than just accept that it's there...I wanted to find out if there was anything I could do to prevent it from getting worse. After all, my mirror and I didn't leave each other on good terms this morning. My goal is to improve our relationship.
What is Cellulite?
Cellulite is caused by fat deposits just below the skin's surface. It's a condition that picks and chooses its victims it seems, because even skinny people can have it. Lack of exercise, hormones and of course, your diet all play a part in the degree of your dimples.
We can proactively make some changes in our lives to enhance our appearance.
First, foods to avoid:
Spring and summer bring out the best in us - not only in fashion and apparel, but for fingers and toes. We love what's happening in the pedi marketplace this year....bright, candy colored, metallic and muted shades are topping the polish charts - and I'm ready! If there's only one beauty routine that my usual 'conservative self' relishes testing the limits on and get "giggy" with is in the pedi section. After all....my professional collegues will never see the fun stuff I do to my toes unless I grant them permission, so why not go all the way!?
We found some fun and fresh pedi color ideas and wanted to share them with you. There are a few rules before you get the paint brush out:
1. Remove dry, callous skin around heels. Crusty feet ARE NOT attractive. Purchase a good pumice stone to exfoliate feet along with a foot repair cream to slather on day & night.
2. CUT YOUR TOENAILS!! I've actually seen toenails so long they leave skid marks on the sidewalk
3. Get the right size sandal. Feet hanging over a too short sandal is not a good look.
