I was intrigued by the idea of wearing clothes that would help me lose weight. So I decided to give Zaggora HotPants a try.
I liked the way that they fit, but the downside is that the material (think wet-suit) that they are made of makes a noise when walking. So I didn't test them out at the gym, although I think I probably would wear them to the gym. I didn't think the noise was that bad. But I've only used them at home.
I used them while walking on the treadmill and strength training. But I also put them on while I was doing housework. And I have to say that as far as 'hot' goes, these pants live up to their name. Within minutes I was sweating. And after wearing them for half an hour, I was drenched by the time that I took them off.
Did I lose tons of inches? Um.. no... but I think true weight lose has to do more with diet than just exercise or wearing certain clothes. Did my stomach feel more toned after wearing them? Yes, for about 5 minutes after I took them off, and then it went back to normal. Do I think I burned more calories? I think I did especially when I wore them while doing normal daily activities.
I'm not convinced that these pants are the miracle pants for weight loss, but I'd wear them. And I liked how they made me sweat while doing lower intensity activities.
Full Disclosure: Zaggora provided me with a free pair of HotPants for the purpose of providing a review. My opinions are
completely my own based on my experience.
I love music and streaming music through various apps on my iPhone. But with the case that I have on my phone, it sort of blocks the speakers a little. I can hear, but it can be a little muffled. So when I heard about the Adfilic Bluetooth Stereo Portable Wireless Speaker I jumped at the chance to try it. I was a little nervous since there really wasn't a lot of instructions on setup. I mean it had the usual pictures of this button does this etc, but there really wasn't a lot of documentation with it. So I was a little apprehensive at first. But it didn't take me too long to realize that I didn't need a lot of instruction. It was pretty much straight forward. Charge it. After it was charged, turn it on. I went into my connections on my iPhone. It immediately found it, paired, and I was good to go. I did get a little confused on which button was volume up (and down). But after a little trial and error with that, I've had absolutely zero iss
This Summer has been a big learning experience - for both Lil Man and myself. Who knew that an amusement park could be such a learning experience for both of us. I watched as my little boy, all on his own, climbed stairs among strangers, learned how to wait his turn, slide down a water slide, and do it over and over again. I watched as other kids shoved him out of their way, cut in front of him as he stood patiently 'waiting for his turn'. Groves of bigger kids kept cutting in front of him, and I held back and gave him time to respond. This for me was a learning experience. See, people have to have room or space to grow. So I learned how to let go, let out the leash a little, and give Lil Man some space. The first time the kids pushed him aside, he really didn't know what to do. After a few minutes of this, I did intervene. I told him to get in line. Take his turn, and when it was his turn he was to go. And the next time as other kids pushed past him, it only took a few
I don't know about where you live, but where we live we are within driving distance to several State Parks. And because the weather has been so cool this Summer, and although it's August, last week was the first time we'd been to the pool. Lil Man had a blast. We had hoped some friends could join us today, but no one was available. But we ventured out, just the two of us, and we had a blast. The water was still pretty cold. In fact, we would get in - play for awhile - then get out and sit on a beach towel in the sun to warm up. This seemed to work well. We splurged and Lil Man enjoyed his first chocolate chipwich. He exclaimed "It's a cookie AND ice cream!" I do believe he thought it was a genius idea. Although it can be exhausting as my Lil Man is one that wants me to definitely join in with him with the sprinklers etc, it was pure joy to watch him enjoy himself. I think this picture speaks for itself. I hope you are enjoying your last few days
