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
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

Well, can you believe that I am trying out a nut bag to make my own almond milk? (I'll pause a moment so that you can let the shock wear off!) I can honestly say that never in my life did I intend on making my own almond milk. But as you know, we are making some changes to our diet. So I decided I would give it a try. And with the Ecosak I also received some recipes which really helped since I wasn't really sure what I was supposed to do. I asked Lil Man if he wanted to help me, and he was more than thrilled. Apparently making almond milk was an exciting and fun thing for him. First things first was to wash the Ecosak (easy to do) and soak the nuts. Yep, I put some raw almonds in a bowl, covered them with water and let them soak 6-8 hours or so. After they had been soaked, I
