Belly Burner Review & Giveaway ~ CLOSED

I have been wanting to lose my belly for a few years now, it is really my only problem area.  I have found that just doing crunches alone does nothing.  Trust me, I have tried getting away with that!  When I had the chance to try The Belly Burner, I jumped at it!

The Belly Burner Belt intensifies your calorie burn by increasing your thermal core temperature.  It is made of high quality neoprene that naturally generates more heat in your core, which increases metabolic rate, the belt focuses energy, and burns off unwanted inches. Neoprene fabric is most commonly used in wetsuits for insulation and in such other items as laptop sleeves, iPod holders and remote controls. The Belly Burner's simple Velcro design makes it easy to take on and off. It can also be worn under clothes so you can squeeze every extra calorie out of normal daily activities. 

With the actual Belly Burner Belt, you get a workout DVD plus an Exercise and food journal Meal planner nutrition log At-a-glance calori…

Tween Confidence Index ~ Unilever Deodorant/DOVE

As you probably know, I have two daughters.  They are almost 9 and almost 13.  My oldest has always been very quick to grow up, while my third grader wants to stay small.  She already thinks she is to old.  Thinking back to how my 7th grader acted in third grade is unbelievable to me.  In third grade she started driving me crazy to wear a bra and wear deodorant.

I personally felt third grade was too young.  She had those undershirt type bras but she wanted a real bra.  My lovely daughter went to my mom and told her, and she somehow convinced my mom to buy her both a bra and deodorant (against my wishes but anyway).   I believe that same year, my daughters dance teacher handed out samples of deodorant to her students.  My daughter was in an advanced class, so she was the youngest.  I figured I lost the battle and embraced it.  

I got pretty lucky with my tween, she is super open about all of this type stuff.  She will talk to me, her dad, my mom.  She says stuff in front of my dad, m…
