212 Fitness Resistance Band Set Review #DeluxeResistanceBands


8b4acd6be36490f530c8b797aaa5bc90779001f8

My husband and I have started a new weight loss journey. We are taking it one day at a time and fixing one vice at a time. I am done with soda and my husband is working his way to being done. The other thing we are tackling right now is getting in our exercise.

I think one thing people fail to realize is that it doesn’t cost much to get a good workout in and you don’t have to join a gym to do so. With just a few pieces of portable items you can be ready to go at any time. We have been using the 212 Fitness Resistance Band Set and are both in love with them. They are portable which means when we travel we just stick them in our luggage, and they are versatile because you can use them for arms, or legs. We also love the fact that each color is a different weight resistance. Meaning you might start off at a lighter weight but in no time you can progress and move up the ladder.

I saw some similar resistance bands in our local sporting goods store but the price was pretty steep. To top it off each piece was sold individually meaning it can get pricey FAST. The 212 Fitness Resistance Band Set is perfect for any fitness level and for just about any budget. There is no need to join a gym when a few pieces of inexpensive equipment can do the trick.

CC Boards™ 3-Piece Nonslip Cutting Board Set Review #LakeHouse

623bc1f695e6857ebbd6554d977cfb36b4a78102

One thing you can never have enough of in a kitchen is cutting boards, but not just any cutting boards you need to have well constructed cutting boards. The CC Boards 3-Piece Nonslip Cutting Board Set with Paddle offers roomy cutting surfaces for preparing large portions of food. Cooking with multiple cutting boards prevents cross-contamination and saves prep time by eliminating the need for the cook to stop and wash the cutting board. You should never use the same cutting boards for meat that you use for vegetables so you should always make sure to have multiple on hand.

I also like multiple sizes no one likes to have wasted space and extra washing. I don’t like to use anything that is too big for the job. Preparing ingredients on CC Boards cutting boards will protect your knife blades from dulling with frequent use.

The CC boards are cutting boards made from polypropylene, a surface that will prevent food from slipping under the force of cutting. The nonskid handles hold the board in place on the countertop while you chop.

There are so many reasons to love the CC Boards 3-Piece Nonslip Cutting Board Set with Paddle:

  • Excellent cutting board design for using large knives to prepare virtually any quantity of food
  • Designate one board for each type of food to prevent cross-contamination
  • Juice groove around the cutting surface captures liquid and keeps the countertop clean
  • Dishwasher-safe material will withstand heat without warping or discoloration
  • Stand these boards on edge for convenient storage near the stove or sink
  • Stylish plastic cutting boards add a striking accent to the countertop throughout the day

bcedd3b55be2f9de5a64cbadc521976ae24d55b0

Fractionated Coconut Oil is a Carrier Oil for Essential Oils. Basically it’s a base oil you use for Aromatherapy and Soothing Massage Oil you should never put the essential oils directly on the skin without a carrier oil just in case it’s too strong for you’re your skin. 

Fractionated Coconut Oil is an unscented base with your expensive organic essential oils to keep them from going rancid, giving them a longer shelf life. Blend with strong essentials like peppermint oil to prevent burns. Odorless, colorless, completely clear.

Fractionated Coconut Oil is fantastic because it stays liquid at room temperatures, not just above 76 degrees like raw cold pressed oil. Fractionated Coconut Oil is also loaded with antioxidants and MCT triglycerides for healing psoriasis, acne treatment, eczema, rash, etc.
There are so many reasons to love Fractionated Coconut Oil! I personally love to use it for my hair skin and even for a moisturizer for your face.

Pull-Apart Peazer Bread

This is a really great recipe. Not only is it inexpensive to make, but it’s easy, requires very few ingredients, and tastes great. It also makes a great presentation. It’s my version of a monkey bread. The great part about this concept is you can do just about anything with the recipe. Keep the margarine and lose everything else, add a little cinnamon and sugar then you have a great monkey bread. You could also make a great garlic pull apart bread too. So simple yet so diverse! Love it!!

Ingredients:

  • 1 can Pillsbury Grand’s Biscuits
  • ½ stick butter
  • 2 green onions (thinly sliced)
  • 1 tbsp. bacon bits (not Bacos)
  • ½ tsp. garlic powder

Directions:

  1. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. 
  2. In a microwave safe bowl melt margarine. 
  3. To the melted margarine add garlic powder, bacon bits, and thinly sliced green onions and mix together. Set mixture aside. 
  4. Quarter each Pillsbury Grand’s Biscuit half the biscuit then half it again. 
  5. Take the quartered Pillsbury Grand’s Biscuits and add them to the margarine mixture and slowly mix the ingredients together. 
  6. Once everything is well combined spoon the biscuit mixture into a 3 quart baking dish. Pretty much any baking dish will work as long as the biscuits will stick together.  
  7. Cook on 350 degrees for about 15 minutes or until golden brown. Test the middle biscuits to insure they are done before removing them completely from the oven.

Smart Weigh- Black Digital Food Scale- Review #smartweigh


6d326a904f30f82cffdc0aff8c9761199b97feae (1)

I really love this Smart Weigh I think it’s one of the best scale I have ever used. One of my favorite features is that fact that it lights up with a beautiful blue screen so that you can see what you are weighing out in the dark. I know that sounds kind of crazy but when you are trying to lose weight which means weighing all of your food, but it’s early in the morning and you are trying not to wake the entire house with the lights on this scale is a miracle worker.

It’s a super heavy duty scale which is necessary in my kitchen because let me tell you that I am a destruction on two feel. I drop everything, spill liquids on just about everything and cause all kinds of issues! It’s not pretty!

With the Smart Weigh I have had so much success with accurate measurements and durability! It’s not and have with a great size base perfect for anything you are weighing and perfect in every way.
