Advanced Green Tea Extract Review

This post is sponsored by Zenwise Labs and no other compensation was given.

Since I am working out for hours a day to lose weight, I am now at the point to try anything to help me get a little more weight off to reach my goal by the end of June. I have been working out and eating pretty darn healthy for 2 months! I have lost weight, but there is still more to go! I know that eating right and exercising is helpful for using supplements like what I am going to share with you!

Pura d'Or Organic Argan Oil Based Hair Loss Prevention Therapy Shampoo Product Review

This post is sponsored by Pura d'Or and no other compensation was given.

The BF's hair is getting a little thin on top. I'm not sure why because his father and grandfather had all their hair before they passed, so it's not genetic. I have been forcing him to do SOMETHING about it, and some of the other brands of hair loss therapy products are really experience. Like $100+ every month.

Thankfully Pura d'Or is has reasonably priced products out there for hair loss!

Potassium and the Diet

I am copy and pasting some stuff below. I'm also crediting the website that I stole the info from. I wanted to share because since I am working out like a fiend, and training for another 50K and maybe even a LONGER ultramarathon, I have been keeping a focus on my potassium. I want to stave off muscle crampage as much as possible. I am constantly sore from all the daily workouts, I don't need to add charlie horses or anything of the sort to my daily aches.

I am not a fan of bananas, so I avoid those if possible. I DO like various Larabars because the majority of them DO have a good source of potassium. I DO supplement with a 525mg potassium tablet when I remember. Thankfully, the dashboard of the Bodymedia does share with me my nutrient breakdown, including potassium. I wanted to share this post because I didn't know how much you need daily, and how much you need as an athlete. Thanks to the info below, I do now!

A Long Overdue Weight Loss Update - NSFW pic

FYI- there may be a NSFW pic below. If you don't want to see boobage - not mine but from a plastic surgery website, you might not wanna read the post today. Just keeping my thoughts and feelings real on the post today.

I'm sorry I have not updated you on much of anything lately. Since I am so focused on losing weight (I've hit the dreaded plateau this month!) I don't want to sit long enough to do any bloggie posts. It's not that I DON'T want to do them and share things with you, but I just don't want to sit.

Also, I don't really want to post certain things because I don't know who really reads this stuff. A fellow weight loss competitor (if so, go away) or a bloggieverse friend. If so, welcome back! I have really missed sharing things with you.

That said, I try to post more regularly on the Instagrams and the Twitterverses. You can always find me on there.

As for the weight loss, I was hoping for a 10-15 pound loss in February to keep on my overa…

HyperBiotics PRO-Dental: Probiotics for Oral & Dental Health Review

This post is sponsored by HyperBiotics and no other compensation was given.

This is my third round of trying out a HyperBiotics brand product. I can say that I am a fan.



I am going to share with you a revolutionary new formula of probiotics called PRO-Dental!

I'm sure you are familiar with probiotics for your digestive tract, but did you know that many of the oral health issues we suffer from (cavities, gum disease, bad breath and even ear, nose, throat and sinus infections) are because the probiotics in our oral cavities have been depleted (due to stress, antibiotics or even modern diet).

This formula has BLIS K12 and BLIS M18 - two groundbreaking oral probiotic strains that will help repopulate your oral cavities and put your oral health back on tract. Read more about it on the sheet provided - you will be amazed!!!
