Hello Summer - Goodbye Cellulite!

It has been SO HOT here this week!  We have seriously gone from summer to a super short fall to summer again this year.  We hardly had a winter, if you can even call it that at all, and so far our spring is more like early to mid summer!

Even though it really isn't summer, it is only March for goodness sake, it will be here before you know it.  With summer comes capris, shorts and.....the always dreaded.....swimsuit!  EEEEEEK!!  It is RARE I go anywhere that requires me to be in a bathing suit, if I do....I RUN as fast as my short legs will take me to the pool and get in as quickly as possible for fear of someone seeing me.

All of my life I have battled cellulite.  It has not mattered how fit or active I may have been, it has ALWAYS been there.  I have made a commitment to getting my body as ready as I can for summer this year.  I have been walking, we are going to get bikes soon so I will be riding, and I am going to start Zumba.  Even with all of that I want a bit more of a kick start.

A few years ago, ok like 10 years ago, I used a cellulite cream.  I think from Mary Kay or it may have been Avon.  I can't really remember right now.  However, it did not work and in fact smelled SO bad!  Seriously!  Almost worse than self tanning creams!  The other day I was in Walmart and noticed Nivea now has a cellulite cream....and serum....and even a skin firming moisturizer!  Ooohhh!!  I thought that was pretty cool!  I love Nivea products, they are a brand that I really trust.  I decided to get all three and try them out.


I have been using the products for about 4 days now and can already tell they are helping, it will still be a while before I see the results they talk about on the box though.  I have noticed my skin does feel firmer.


I love that this is a system that works together.  You put the serum and gel on your problem areas and use the firming lotion all over, just like regular lotion.

 Gel-Cream

 
Skin Firming Moisturizer

I do wish there were more precise directions though.  I am still confused as to what order to apply the serum and gel but, if it is working then I guess it really doesn't matter.  I went on their website and could not find any further instructions either.


Oh!  I forgot to mention the smell!  Oh my goodness!  The smell of all of the products is AMAZING!  It is a clean, fresh scent with just a tiny drop of floral.  No funky smells this time!  YAY!

Strawberries and Cream Instant Oatmeal | Recipe

I don't know about you but, we go through oatmeal like that is the only thing to eat on this planet!   Seriously a TON! My youngest would eat it for every meal and snack....every day....if I let her. Yes, the little packs can be cheap (if you can find a coupon and get them on sale) but it still adds up.  I used things I already had on hand so there was no extra cost to make this.  FREE is ALWAYS good!   I tried before to make little packets to keep on hand but that was a complete fail.  I have since reworked the recipe and am happy with the results.  I decided to just keep the oatmeal in a glass container this time and scoop out what we need, when we need it.  You can also make this into packets by just scooping the desired amount into zip-top bags. {Strawberries & Cream Instant Oatmeal}   12 Servings 6 Cups Quick Cook Oats 1 1/2 Cups Oat Powder 2 Cups Powdered Milk 1 - 1 1/2 Cup Sugar 1 Cup Freeze Dried Strawberries Directions f

Getting ready for summer with #MyHartstrings #cbias

Is it warming up where you are?  It has been warming up here for a few weeks now.  With spring break over and the temps slowly getting warmer and warmer, it can only mean one thing.... SUMMER is just around the corner! We like to spend our summers at the lake or at the pool.  Last year we practically lived in our bathing suits!  Since we spent SO much time in our suits last year, they were looking a little warn by the end of summer.  Plus both girls have grown so much this year, they needed new suits. I have been peeking at some suits on Hartstrings.com and decided to go ahead and get new suits!  We may be going to Houston soon so the girls will need something for that trip.  It was REALLY hard to decide on what suit to get the girls, they have such cute options.  Mads is old enough to pick for herself (somewhat) and MG really doesn't care as long as it includes pink. I pulled up Hartstrings.com and let the girls have at it.  I did guide MG into the green and p
