Like clockwork, January 1st rolls in and a new year full of resolutions blasts into the forefront of our minds. Just like most Americans, I make resolutions based on whatever goals I have for myself. Lose weight, drink more water, sleep at least 8 hours a night, exercise 4 times a week, try new foods, see new destinations...the list goes on a on! Also like clockwork, the second February 1st hits the calendar, I give up on all my resolutions because they're just too darn much. And I like my fro-yo, let's be real.
Within a week, Tessa had hooked me up with lots of It Works products to try, including body wraps, Greens, Thermofit, Confianza, and FatFighter. I was most excited to try the wraps (who doesn't want to smooth and tone up that belly?) and the Greens (because everyone sings their praises). Here's a quick review of the products I tried:
A few weeks later after I ordered a full box of wraps, D and I wrapped our mid-sections and experienced the exact same results...tighter, taut tummies! D was hilarious, though...asking a million questions and constantly wanting to peek at his tummy before time was up. Like a little kid, that man! A few days later, I wrapped my arm fat (you know, the "batwings") and, again, the smoothness and tightness was obvious. 3 days later, still tight and they look to me, less hangy (for the lack of a better word). Next time I wrap them I'll take measurements, because I really feel like they're a smidge smaller.
Throughout our wrapping trials, D and I both ate normally and worked out at least 2 times a week. Nothing over the top, but I imagine if we wrapped, ate super healthy and did 4+ times a week workouts, our results would be doubled. I recently started taking the FatFighter supplement samples Tessa sent me after I ate fatty/carb heavy meals and the Thermofit before workouts. I can tell I have a bit more energy to power through my runs and extend my workouts a bit longer with Thermofit, so that exciting! I'm curious to see how that paired with the FatFighter helps facilitate weight loss with continued use...only time will tell. I have a problem swallowing pills, so the FatFighters and Thermofit supplements I have to break in half and take. No biggie!
Greens Chews Review: I really, really liked how these bad boys tasted. They're like eating a small bite of berry Laffy Taffy...no, really! The fact that they're chock full of antioxidants and prebotic support really sold me. I'm a big fan and plan to order more soon.
Greens On-the-Go Review: I'm not a huge fan of adding anything to my water. Plain water always tastes better to me. But, I honestly didn't mind the Greens taste. Tessa sent me the Berry flavor to try and it was subtle in an 8 oz. glass of water. It turns your water into a greenish-grey color and it does add a slightly thicker consistency to the water, but it's not off-putting. If you don't add it to a water bottle and drink it from a glass, you'll have to stir it from time to time or the greens will settle to the bottom of the glass. I'd recommend adding it to a water bottle or a shaker bottle so you can shake to mix it freely. As for how it made me feel...I could definitely tell I had more energy, even on the day I drank it and skipped my workout. Would I keep up with drinking Greens? I think so. I feel like if I combined with with wrapping and the FatFighters/Thermofit supplements, it could only increase my energy and results. I'm also interested to feel those detoxing effects over continued use.
FINAL REVIEW: I've already purchased a bottle of FatFighters and Thermofit as well as 3 more boxes of wraps...so I guess that means I'm sold! Well, I'm still testing, really. I feel like with extended use, I could potentially see some great results. I'll keep you all updated! And if the results are really awesome, I just might share my photos. That's not a scary thought AT ALL. [eye-rolls] We will see! Now, here's a little story from Tessa, the Wrap Queen herself!! Take it away, girl!
First and foremost, I am SO grateful to Casey for giving me the opportunity to talk with her HUGE, amazing network of women and bloggers about the phenomenal company that is It Works Global. I became an independent distributor with IWG back in August 2013 just before my husband and I were moving from Aviano Air Base to Shaw Air Force Base in South Carolina. I was finishing up my Masters degree and knew that I would be interning full time with a high school in SC and wouldn't be able to contribute financially to our family as I had been doing while I was at Aviano. A few months after our move, I realized how much of a financial hit we took when we moved back stateside. I contacted one of my uplines and asked her to help me make my business explode.
Everything from that point on is history! Since then, I've invested my spare time (sometimes 15 minutes a day, sometimes hours a day) into developing my business and now have a team of 40 distributors and countless clients! Everyone that It Works has introduced me to has been dedicated to their health and wellness as well as taking control of their own finances and every day I meet someone else who inspires me to stay on the same path! I've never met a group of more motivating and inspirational people in my life and am so honored to be a part of this community of successful men and women.
That being said, what IS It Works? You may have heard of "that crazy wrap thing." We're all over Instagram and other social media outlets and yet still the majority of the world hasn't heard about the Ultimate Body Applicator that tighten, tones, and firms your skin in just 45 minutes! Everyone from fitness models to moms with extra skin on their bellies are loving our wraps and the results they are seeing. I tried my first wrap back in the summer of 2013 and when I woke up a size smaller (my under belly was GONE), I knew I needed to be a part of this company!
In addition to that crazy wrap thing, It Works has an incredible supplement and skincare line - all of which are 100% all natural. Talk about holistic health! A few of my favorite products include the Greens, a non-GMO powder that you mix with juice or water and it has 8+ servings of fruits and vegetables. After my first month of drinking Greens, I lost 13lbs. After months of drinking Greens, my immune system has NEVER been better... I can't believe I've made it through this winter without getting even a sniffle! If people are interested in wrapping, I always suggest drinking Greens which detox your body daily and help your wrap results.
Another perk to It Works is they are ALL about Customer Service. The Loyal Customer program is specifically set up for VIP members who enjoy trying new products, want to improve their health or the way they look, and love saving money! As soon as you sign up as a Loyal Customer, you get up to 40% off all of the products and instantly get $10 in perks points (cash back you use toward a future purchase!). AND when you sign up and a friend signs up because of you, you get $35 or a free box of wraps! There are plenty more perks where that came from, but those are my most favorite.
No matter what your health or beauty goals are, It Works has you covered! I so look forward to meeting you and again, thank you to Miss Casey for introducing us!
