Hello! How’s it going?
Today’s Groupon fun comes from their “Beach Body” category. I got two things this week to help me out when I’m by the pool in limited clothing…
First, I tried Zerona aka non-invasive body contouring last week. It’s actually an on-going process and I have to go back several times – so I don’t have ‘after’ results but I want to share the process with you.
I bought a pack of body contouring sessions via Groupon from a local spa. To put it very simply the way Zerona works – it’s a low level laser that ‘pokes a hole’ in your fat cells causing them to drain. Over the course of a few treatments the lasers cause a rupture in your cells and then they are released into your body where they are eventually flushed out.
Most people do it on their problem areas and based on my research it appears the majority of ‘before’ and ‘after’ stories are on the ‘love handles’ area. But, I am doing it on my upper thighs.
I run about 40+ miles a week and still have fat there. I don’t care about booty fat, but the thigh area I could live without. I did a lot of research on it and think it’s safe and appears effective. I have done my best with eating and exercise and don’t think there is anything wrong with trying to shrink my problem area a bit. I don’t expect huge results, but getting my jeans to slip on easier would make me very happy.
I have went in a few times for the procedure now. I don’t feel anything and it’s actually relaxing! I lay on my front and back each for 20 minutes while the laser shoots it’s super powers at my thighs.
I just rest while I’m there since they heat up the bed and it’s nice and comfy.
Again, I don’t feel anything before/during/or after the procedure. And it’s too early to see results but I will keep ya posted!
And because I am all about instant gratification and I also got my tan on this weekend! You know what they say…
Since I am very fair skinned and just freckle if I’m out in the sun I do spray tan. I bought a three pack of spay tans via Groupon from Hollywood Tan.
I’ve been doing Mystic Tan before big events or vacation since college so I know the drill, but always go to my usual place. I was excited that Hollywood Tan has new spray tanning booths that get you at 4 different angles instead of just front/back!! This made a big different in the tan being even and thorough.
Proof it works: I had a bandage on my finger since Vegas scratched me good Saturday morning. This was Sunday – you can see the line around my finger where the spray was blocked.
I am a big fan of sunblock and spray tan. Use it wisely.
Now… I only have two more weeks of Groupon fun left! Help me out on what I should do next!!
Vote on what my next Groupon fun should be:
Clay Shooting Lesson – take a shotgun and do one of those cool target practice things like they just did on Ladies of London!
Museum of Latin American Art in Long Beach
Eat Raspados and hang out.
