Stepping out of the Garden: My Journey #10

Good Morning!  I love all of the 300+ bloggers that I regularly stalk follow.  I love that every holiday means new craft ideas and fun recipes.  My favorites are the homestead/DIY posts that I can really get into.

Me!  April 2012
But here's the thing, I'm trying to slim down and get back in Bikini Shape since spring is here (where I am) and summer feels like just a few days away.  
I want to look like that pic on the right again!!!
There is NO way I'm going to ruin all of that hard work with cakes and cupcakes.  For now I'll just drool over your creations.

Over at Mary's Kitchen I shared my first post on Foods to fight Inflammation.  Since I work in the medical field I have learned that (simply put) Inflammation causes disease.  Disease means "any impairment of normal physiological function affecting all or part of an organism, esp a specific pathological change caused by infection, stress, etc., producing characteristic symptoms; illness or sickness in general"

I detox my body internally through a specific food regime once or twice a year.  We eat healthy throughout the year and "cheat" every now and then.  But I never gave much thought about my skin.  Did you know that your skin is the largest organ of your body?  It's true.

So to help myself get "Bikini Ready" I started using the It Works! Wraps.  I LOVE it!!!  Below is a quick video to show what it is.

If you're interested in trying the wrap you can check out my website or send me an email to

The ingredients in the Ultimate Body Applicator promote Lipolysis, detoxify the cell, improve microcirculation and reduce Inflammation.

Good luck in meeting your goal. I had a wrap years ago but I'm sure they've changed a lot (improved) since then. Thanks for sharing the info.
