The weather is finally getting warmer and I am getting excited for Summer! The only problem is that I have areas of my body that I am embarrassed to show off. My problem area has always been my thighs. I am not overweight, but no matter how thin I am, I still have annoying cellulite and unshapely thighs.
I am traveling to Florida next month to visit my daughter and her husband and we will be spending a lot of time on the beach, so I was excited to have found out about a new fascia exercise program created by exercise physiologist Teresa Tapp. Finally, an exercise program that will help me improve the area of my body with promising results!
Tapp is a fascia exercise program that involves specific movements, designed to activate muscles, and is very effective at lengthening and strengthening muscle and bones, lowering blood sugar, balancing hormones, cinching in the core,reducing inflammation, detoxing, and losing 1 to 2 sizes in a single month with only 15 minutes of workout. You only do it 3-4 times a week for 15 minutes,following the DVD or online instructions at home. There is no equipment needed to do T-Tapp.
Here is a link to PBS host Alicia Steele in PEOPLE.COM, http://people.com/bodies/weight-loss-success-stori... who went from size 10 to size 2 in 4 months. She did the exercises at her home and also did Teresa’s 5-minute skin brushing routine. Which resulted inher having tight smooth skin after losing all the sizes.
“TheT-Tapp system is the ideal anti-aging workout. Highly recommended!”

Sip Your Way to Beau-Tea-ful Skin
We all know beauty comes from within. However, “beauty” is usually described as what we put
ON the body in the form of makeup, facial masks, lotions, etc. With their uniquely crafted blends, Teami helps cleanse the body of impurities, concentrating on what we put IN our bodies – creating beauty from the inside out.
Stored toxin build-up can cause loss of energy, weight gain, skin blemishes and a sluggish, dragging feeling on a daily basis. Instead of treating the problem topically, for example putting a face mask on a face filled with blemishes, Teami solves the problem at its root. With thousands of recorded tea plant species, it is difficult to decide what is best. Teami has removed the guess work, having analyzed and tested thousands of combinations before creating the perfect formulas of effective, organic, and tasty teas.
The Colon Cleanse eliminates toxins in the lining of the colon, naturally cleansing the body from within while the Skinny tea boosts metabolism. Both aid in restoring the body’s natural function, leaving you feeling energized with a fresh, youthful complexion.
My thoughts: I have been trying to lose weight and was down 14 pounds, but the rest was not budging. I was excited to try out Teami to see if it might help me lose my last ten pounds! I was sent samples of Colon Cleanse as well as Skinny tea to review and I have been using them both for about two weeks now.
My daughter and I brewed a cup of Colon Cleanse at about 6 pm on the first night that I received my tea samples. It is a very mellow and flavorful tea. We both added Agave syrup to sweeten it. By midnight, I am not kidding, we were both running to the bathroom. To spare you some details, let's just say that this tea REALLY does clean you out! It is not a very fun process, but by morning I was three pounds lighter. Colon Cleanse is perfect for a person who feels bloated. It makes your tummy look flatter very quickly.
I drink a cup of Skinny tea every morning. The Skinny tea tastes great with a little Agave sweetener. This amazing tea makes me feel fully awake and gives me a lot of energy to get through my day. I don't drink coffee, so this is wonderful! I always feel really good all day long. It seems like this tea enhances my mood!
I have also found that I don't have any cravings for any sweets or junk food. It really seems to curb my appetite. I haven't lost much weight yet (maybe about seven pounds total in two weeks) but at least it is a very healthful way to get myself going in the right direction of continuing my weight loss journey.
I have also noticed that my skin just seems to have a new found radiance. Coincidence? Maybe not!

Mannatech, a global provider of skin care and wellness products, introduces its newest 3-step skin care system in the U.S. to provide a way for customers to experience their best skin yet with one set of products.
This trio works synergistically to support beautiful looking skin, at any age. All three Generation Ūth products combine the finest ingredients with the most advanced skin care technologies.
Crocus chrysanthus , a flower from the iris family, is a source of a special ingredient in Mannatech’s Ūth Skin Rejuvenation Crème. The nutrient-rich Crocus bulb extract may enhance the production of collagen and elastin necessary for skin firmness.
Start by gently cleansing and exfoliating the skin with the Ūth Facial Cleanser . Next, apply the nutrient-rich Ūth Skin Rejuvenation Crème to help restore a youthful appearance. Lastly, lock in daily hydration with the Ūth Moisturizer for a winning combination . It’s that simple!
"Discover how naturally beautiful your skin can look and feel"
My thoughts: I was given the chance to review this amazing trio of Generation Ūth products to review. I have been using these products for a little over a month now, and I have definitely seen an incredible difference in the way my skin looks and feels. I begin this skin care regimen by cleansing my face using the Ūth Facial Cleanser in the morning and at night. The cleanser makes my skin feeling extremely clean, especially with the gentle exfoliators it contains. I love how it removes all of my makeup, oil and dead skin cells that may clog my pores.
Next, I apply the Ūth Skin Rejuvenation Crème, which absorbs perfectly into my skin without a greasy, heavy feel. It truly diminishes my fine lines, which I especially notice around my mouth and between my brows. These lines really seem to vanish!
After the Rejuvenation Crème has fully absorbed, I then apply the Ūth Moisturizer, which completely seals in the moisture on my face, neck and upper chest/ cleavage area. This cream is also very light and absorbs very nicely so that I do not look like an oil slick. I am even able to apply my makeup over both of these face creams without my skin looking shiny. I am really impressed with Ūth products. I am very intrigued by the science behind this brand's formulation and I am excited to see the long term effect it has on my skin to keep me looking youthful. This is definitely a brand I will be purchasing in the future.

Spring is definitely in the air! (At least for those of us on the West Coast.) It is time to shed our winter coats as well as some winter weight that we might have put on our bodies. I know it has happened to me!
Well, there is truly a way that you can lose that weight quickly and easily. CTD Labs has taken the guess work out of dropping those pounds by introducing the reformulated Lean Stack.

For a ton of energy that lasts throughout the day, I take one Hypercuts capsule first thing in the morning. (If I take it any later I will not sleep at night.) It replaces any need for coffee or energy drinks. Hypercuts completely takes away my appetite until dinner time, and even then I really do not feel hungry. I actually have to remember to eat when I take this supplement. It is perfect for people who need to cut down their appetite and reduce cravings for unhealthy snacks.
- Rapid Removal of Excess Water
- Reduced Bloating

I take 1-2 Diuretic Extremes during my morning and mid-day meals. This amazing diuretic really helps to reduce bloating. It makes my jeans fit very nicely around the waist.
Omegathin provides an optimal blend of omega-3,6 and 9 to help support fat loss, a healthy lipid profile, and muscle recovery. Omegathin has been shown to play an important role in reducing body fat and increasing muscle tone according to recent clinical trials. Omegathin contains a high amount of EFA's (Essential Fatty Acids) which are vital for the transportation and metabolism of triglycerides and cholesterol as well as aiding in skin texture.
I take 3 Omegathin capsules in the morning and usually 3 more with dinner. Not only does it help me to keep my weight down, but it also seems to make my skin glow, and I love that feature!
I have been taking Lean Stack supplements for a couple of months now. Taking the recommended dosage of each supplement daily has been a godsend to me. It kept me from overindulging during the holidays (in which I usually gain at least four pounds.) I have had plenty of energy and some to spare. My tummy is flat. I have lost a total of fourteen pounds and have successfully kept it off. All of my clothing fits me so much better!

Just one tablet per day will help improve your brain’s performance and protect it against inflammation and aging.
My thoughts: I have many New Year's Resolutions that I am hoping to actually keep this year! One of them is to lose weight and tone up my body. I am planning to start out with the 900 Calorie Burn with Ashley Borden DVD.
900 Calorie Burn features celebrity trainer Ashley Borden who has worked with Ryan Gosling, Natasha Bedingfield, Chrstina Aguilera, and even some world-class athletes. These workouts will introduce you to HIIT, High Intensity Interval Training, which is one of the most effective ways to blast calories and burn fat in a short amount of time. Includes four intense 25-minute workouts for your upper-body, lower-body, core, or from head-to-toe. Do all four to maximize your 900 calorie burn.
Now, I have never been one to stick with a fitness regime, but I am eager to give it a try! We shall see how this goes.
I also want to keep my skin in the best shape that I possibly can, so I am using the NeriumAD Age Defying Treatment and NeriumAD Age Defying Day Cream. These products are amazing! I use the Age Defying Treatment at night after cleansing. It smells heavenly and I do not think I have ever used a product quite like it. I can feel it tightening and firming my skin as I apply it. The Day Cream is wonderful, too. I apply it after I wash my face in the morning, right before I apply my foundation. It truly protects my skin against harmful sun rays as well as icy winter winds. I have been using both of these products for about a week now and I love how beautiful and radiant my skin looks and feels.
Happy New Year!
