Let's talk about our problem areas!

Recommended Posts

Speaking of facial issues and skin sensitivity. I found out that I was allergic to benzoyl peroxide. At first the reaction was small but ended up almost like a welt. Anyway, I through out the over the counter stuff and started using Murad which has been fabulous for me.

 

I found that working out with low weights 5-10lbs with high reps burns the most fat and toned my arms. Mind you, I have not kept to the program. But I have started to walk to work or home at least four times a week. But I like the idea of the blog encouraging others to hang in there. I need the motivation.

 

Thanks all.smile123.gif

Proativ burned the living sh*t out of my face! It looked like I has nasty windburn all over the place... wasn't pretty! At least it cleared up on it's own eventually....

 

I get psoraisis on my scalp pretty bad sometimes. It doesn't bother me much but I'm tough. My sister gets it & she gets very embarassed. It looks like you have giant chunks of dandruff & if it gets irritated it turns red & can scab. Sucks, but getting my hair coloured & the sunshine (or tanning) really help to control it!

 

IMO you can do as much weights as you want, but it's going to be cardio that's going to burn the fat for you. Even in those hard to get places (arms, etc) I do heavier weights at the gym, but nothing will get my "flab" toned well without the cardio. I find it exhausting to do an hour of weights and then try to do cardio while at the gym, so I try to do them seperate.

oh and also the skin on the back of my upper arms gets these little bumps. i hate it. it doesnt happen in the winter when they're covered up, but in the summer when i start to wear sleeveless stuff. of course.
Dougsgirl I am in the exact same boat as you. I have stomach muscles and you can even see where I use to have a little definition, but it is this huge layer of fat on top of it. I know that cardio does the job, but I can seem to find enough energy, time, and "want to" to go and take my smile117.gif to the gym. This is ridiculous because I only have a little more than a month til the wedding and only 4 days til my dress fitting...What can I do for a quick fix that will just get me right for the wedding? Any suggestionshuh.gif

I will keep everyother thickness that I have, because I do believe in a little meat..but this belly is ridiculous... I use to play college basketball and had nice muscle definition...I am only 24...WHAT HAPPENEDhuh.gifgirl_werewolf.gif

your only option at this point with the fitting being 4 days away is to buy a good pair of spanks that have tummy control, or a corset bra.

if you know you are carrying a lot of water weight, then you can take an OTC diuretic (or even just drink a lot of tea or coffee really, that will get you peeing). but to be honest that wont help you *that* much unless you get prescription diurectics from a doctor.

Are you following a nutrition plan like WW? Doing that for 3-4 weeks may help, but then think also that you do not want to lose too much weight because then your dress will be too big.

I've started circuit training, and I think it has helped. When I do weights, I go from one exericse to the next. I don't take breaks in between sets, I just go to work a different muscle. Last night I upped my weight on my lunges, and I think it's something I really needed to do. Also, another good exercise for your butt is on the stability ball. Lie on your back with your feet on the stability ball and lift up and down, and then roll the ball out and back in to work your hamstrings. I really like this one.

my other problem is that i have a fat belly. no matter how much i eat healthy and exercise, my belly seems to always be kinda poochie. i am hoping that the colonix will help a little with this.
Maura,
I think you'll like the book, it takes about 2 weeks to a month to see the difference, but you'll completely notice. After taken so many antibiotics I started doing research. I found out that basically as long as your liver is toxic you will keep breaking out, so you gotta work on clearing it up. There were a few things that I modified in the eating plan, which I'm sure you'll do as well to accommodate your liking. Good luck!

Thanks so much Sandra. I need this book. If I can change one thing about myself, it would be my skin. I hate it and literally cry about it. I avoid wearing make-up when ever possible (M-F). I break out so easily.

Glenda, I have many more problem areas, but I've reached a point where I told myself that if I am too lazy (which I am) to change it, I need to embrace it. So I love my body and all its jelly!

    • Hundreds of years before, the basic jewellery were made out of seashells and bone, trees and animal skin. In the ancient times, the Egyptian jewellery first came into existence. Egyptian culture inhabited technology, gemstones, and precious metals early in comparison to other places. They were inspired by the culture of royalty and aristocracy which led to thinking noble like having a deep appreciation for luxury. This made them create impactful jewellery and leading trends. Copper was the first metal that came into existence through which we as humans got so many jewellery items.  However, the major focus on jewellery came when they discovered gold. This allowed the Egyptian to rule as the first jewellery maker. The ancient Egyptians valued adornment and were worn by both men and women.  Material and metals: The plethora of material which was used in the making of this Egyptian jewellery was basically gold and silver. Egyptian has mostly attracted towards gold and the availability of silver was less in Egypt as compared to any other place. The colour variation was due to the mixing of elements such as alloys like copper, iron, silver into gold.  Charm jewellery: It was then also an interesting concept to have charms in necklaces, bracelets and other jewellery items. It’s just they were made up of stones and precious or semi-precious jewellery. In this picture above the necklace is adorned with precious stones in different charms shapes. Gem and stones: The more royal pieces of Egyptian jewellery were adorned with the precious jewellery items. The gemstones were semi-precious stones, precious stones are other various gems. The most prized stone were lapis lazuli, rock crystal, and pearls. Emeralds were also found in these jewellery pieces. These were made from ground quartz and then molded into expensive gemstones. They are also used as charm jewellery when molded or carved in different shapes.

    • It’s my wedding five months from now and we badly need ideas because everyone’s mind is not working right now and I, as the bride, cannot even think of what I really want to have on my wedding day. I want something simple yet unique. Something that suits for Colombian women and bride. Can you help me out with this? Thanks! I will really appreciate your comments!
