Taco Hell Hangover

<Warning: this post has ADD…and was started before the Splurging isn’t always worth it post…and should have been posted yesterday>

I ate Taco Bell yesterday.  It tasted relatively good while I scarfed it down just before picking the little kids up.  It didn’t take long for my body to get uber pissed off at the poisonous toxins I’d shoveled in there.  My innards rebelled and starting singing Toxic.

Normally I would be depressed by how great Britney looks but I’m on my way to getting fit and healthy so someone else can pick up the job of being jealous.  🙂

A few months ago I finally discovered that I was not hungover from alcohol every morning…aaaand now I sound like an alcoholic….which I should be having four kids, three cats, two dogs, a fish and a one-eyed hamster- buuuut I’m not.  I used to enjoy a rather good sized cocktail with my nightly bubble bath while reading a romance novel but that is one of the lifestyle changes I’ve made.  I woke up every morning feeling like crap and assumed it was because of the alcohol.  Even if I skipped a night I still woke up with that miserable feeling.  It wasn’t until I cut out the nightly cocktails that I realized I was still waking up “hungover” every morning.

<que Toxic video again>

I finally figured out my body was rejecting the toxic crap I was feeding myself in between trying to eat healthy.  BLECH!  I even have a headache from it that won’t go away.  I was waiting till the asprin kicked in before I hit the Fitness Room but it still hasn’t gone away and it’s been almost two hours.  I keep thinking of the “meat” and “cheese” I ingested yesterday and how unhealthy it was.  I guess now I get to go exercise with a horrible headache on top of still feeling like crap.  All because I chose to eat unhealthy ONE TIME!  Today, it’s back to veggies, shakes, good protein and loads of water.  Slacker Fattie showed her ugly head yesterday for just a moment but Skinny Bitch is stomping her like a bug today!

 

What to expect your first time using body wrap

What To Expect The First Time You Use

  • You’ll lose inches!
  • The Ultimate Body Applicator is successful for the majority of users the very first time it is used.
  • The Applicator should not be compared to or confused with diuretic products that temporarily cause water
  • weight reduction. The Applicator converts “fat cells” to energy.
  • Along with the Applicator, sensible eating habits are recommended for optimum results.

What if nothing happens…
Although most begin to see improvements and inch loss after the first application, some may take up to 3-4
applications to achieve optimal results. Those who are on medication and/or who have toxic systems (i.e., are not
regular) may fit in this category. Inch loss is not the only benefit from the Applicator. It also defines, tightens, tones
and firms the skin, and visibly enhances the body’s contours. It also diminishes the appearance of cellulite and skin slackening. Improves the elasticity, moisturizes and vitalizes the skin, leaving it smooth and flexible, with a youthful fresh appearance.

What if I gain inches?
Don’t be alarmed… this is actually a good thing! The Applicator will cause the toxins in the body to get stirred up,
which will initially cause the body to bloat and produce an apparent gain in inches. Drinking a large amount of water
within the next couple of days following the use of the Applicator will allow the body to flush the toxins and many
have then seen a significant inch loss as a result!

Body wraps- holy crap they worked!!

I’ll admit I was skeptical but still dished out the dough hoping it would work.  I tried the body wrap on my belly first.  A tip from a fellow ItWorks Global rep- take a hot shower and use a scrubby or loofah with NO body wash.  Make sure skin is free of any lotions, too.  I opened the package and laid out the contents- the wrap and directions.  Tossing aside my ‘do first read directions later’ ADD I carefully read the directions.  I’d watched several videos on youtube and thought using plastic wrap was a bit much but quickly realized it was a necessity- only I didn’t have any.  So after I opened the wrap, pulled it apart and applied it to my freshly scrubbed belly I went in search for something to wrap around it.  Hubby wouldn’t give up the ace bandage so I rummaged around until I found the girdle (for lack of a better word) I bought for a bridesmaid dress.

*Body Wrap Service Announcement- No where did I read anything about the smell of the wraps.  FYI, they smell and feel like Icy Hot.  Apparently that’s the smell that comes from mixing up the concoction to suck out evil toxins from my over toxified body.  My 4 and 7 year old kids came near me and exclaimed, “What’s that smell?”  Don’t worry, it’s just mommy trying to get fit and healthy-  go play.  So now you’ve been warmed about the smell.  Oh, and the icy hot feeling.

Another tip I got was to move around while wearing the wrap.  Fold some laundry, vacuum, do some dishes, etc but do NOT exercise while wearing it.  Sweat will clog your pores preventing the wraps from working.

Anyway, after an hour (you have to leave it on for a minimum of 45 minutes) I took it off, rubbed the excess lotion in and did my measurements again.  I’d lost one inch from above my belly button, 2.5 inches from just below and .5 inches from a little further down.  WOW- 4 inches total!

HOLD UP!  I was still skeptical.  So a few hours later (only wrap one area at a time) I cut one in half and wrapped each piece around my upper arms after measuring in three different spots while holding my arms out to the side (this is important).  Again, no plastic wrap so I got creative and wrapped disposable shopping bags around each arm with some tape….and the assistance of my 14 year old.  After an hour I removed the bags and wraps, rubbed the excess lotion in and remeasured.  Because I cut the wrap in half I didn’t lose anything from where I took the first measurements but I did lose 1.25 inches off of each arm!

What could be better than that?  Well, let me tell you!  I measured again 24 hours later and had lost another inch off my stomach area and .75 inches off of one arm and .5 inches off the other.  Ok, NOW I’m convinced!

Key points

  • Use one wrap at a time unless you’re doing arms/legs
  • For best results take a hot shower and use loofah/scrubby with no soap/lotion
  • Use saran wrap/ace bandage/girdle
  • Move around while wearing wrap or wear it while you sleep
  • Drink lots of water before, during and after
  • Don’t forget to measure!!!
