The Digest Diet – Getting Back On Track

My path to healthier eating and correct portion size RE-starts today.  I’m using The Digest Diet by Liz Vaccariello. I read about this plan in Reader’s Digest and began the 21-day plan with my husband about a year ago.  We were so good for so long but, oh well, time has shown that we’ve forgotten

Proskins Slim Leggings Challenge 3-Week Update

I seem to have hit a stalemate with my numbers this week.  This is week number 3 of wearing Proskin Slim Leggings – for at least 8 hours a day – and my numbers have not changed since last week.  Currently I am: Measurements as of 10/24/2013: Hips:  42 inches Top of Thigh:  26 1/2

2 Week Update For Proskin Slim Leggings 28-Day Bloggers Challenge

Here I am, on week two of my Proskin Slim Leggings 28-Day Bloggers Challenge. As I’ve mentioned in my previous posts these leggings are incredibly comfortable to wear so the “challenge” of wearing them for 8 hours a day is easy-peasy. These leggings are not a tight, spandexy kind of fabric, they are a soft,

ProSkin Slim Leggings 28-Day Challenge First Week Update

To be completely honest I’m not really sure what’s going on here. I’m finished with my first week of the ProSkin 28 Day Blogger Challenge wearing ProSkin Slim Leggings for at least 8 hours a day and I have actually lost inches. I haven’t changed my exercise routine, I haven’t changed my eating habits, the

I'm Taking The Blogger 28-Day Challenge With ProSkin Slim Leggings

Here’s where I stand, I’m in my mid-Forties, my metabolism has changed, along with my hormones, and keeping my body in shape is harder then before.  The magazine articles I’ve been reading for years, as if to prepare myself for this change, haven’t prepared my mind for how I’d feel about this actually happening to

The Good, The Bad and The Sweaty – Estroven Weight Management

Sure, it started subtlety enough.  A little bit of body warmth, a little more padding on my hips, my stomach.  I thought these were the results of the new frozen yogurt place my girls and I discovered.  But, alas, no.  After many months of avoiding said absolutely-delicious-frozen-yogurt-place and feeling a bit tired, and a bit warmer

Tummy Tuck Belt – My Honest Review

Honesty is the best policy, right? I was given the opportunity to review the Tummy Tuck Belt and I’ve given it my best shot, I really have, but this just isn’t a good product for me.  I found it difficult to put on/take off and the idea of the Thermal Accelerating Cream needing to stay on your

Sleep Naturally With Dream Water

This sleep-aid contains GABA, which relaxes & reduces anxiety, Melatonin that induces sleep and 5 HTP, a derivative of Tryptophan that relaxes and improves sleep.  Tryptophan is a chemical that is created by warming milk and our family is very familiar with

Rooibee Red Tea Brings Healthy Refreshment On These Hot Summer Days

My mother was the first person to tell me how good Rooibee (pronounced: ROY-bos) was for you. She was reading the book series “The No.1 Ladies Detective Agency” and the author mentioned tea made from the Rooibos bush and the health benefits of this tea. My mom researched this product and started drinking tea made

Ways To Have A Healthier Lifestyle – At Any Age

Eating a balanced meal hasn’t been a problem for me.  I love vegetables, have a bit of meat with some of my meals and generally make healthy choices.  I’m doing what I can to have my children eat the “colors of the rainbow”. When I pack their school lunches I make sure there are colorful

Delicious Taste Of Rooibee Red Tea

I first heard of Rooibos (pronounced: ROY-bos) tea from my mother. She was reading the book series “The No.1 Ladies Detective Agency” and the author mentioned tea made from the Rooibos bush and the health benefits of this tea. My mom researched this product and started drinking tea made from Rooibos and wanted me to

Ready For The Meatless Monday Challenge?

Now that I’m back in the swing of things with my exercising (3 weeks in now – yay me!) I’m looking for other ways to be inspired in the health area.  My family’s diet is pretty good, but I would like to veer away from meat and get more veggies involved.  Morning Star Farms has

A Healthier Life For Your Dog With K9-GH

Our chocolate lab Benny is the first dog I’ve ever had.  After getting over those months of “puppy love” I’ll call them (ex.:  peeing in the house, pooping in the house, getting into the garbage – oh wait, he still does that) we’re discovering that there are certain traits attributed to Labradors.  It’s not just their patience, like with
