Product Review - YogaToes®

~ Posted on Wednesday, October 3, 2012 at 8:17 AM ~

The first time I saw the pitch for this product, I went 'Wh-at?! You mean there are products out there that let my toes do yoga?!'

Now did you know that 25% of bones in our body are located in the feet which are made up from 52 bones? And did you also know that women suffer from 4 times as many foot problems as men? It is important that women wear correctly fitting footwear as on average they walk 3 miles further every day than men. So with all these foot facts, all the more I got to review it! So here goes my review for the "YogaToes®":

About the product:
"The patented ergonomic design of YogaToes® works between, above and beneath toes to stretch them apart from each other, away from the ball of the foot and down from the top of the foot. Stretching and working the muscles increases circulation. You know how good you feel after a workout or a massage. Now your feet can enjoy the same results! All you have to do is slip into a pair of YogaToes®. YogaToes® help improve & prevent common foot problems like: hammertoes, bunions, Plantar Fasciitis, crossed toes and poor circulation."

I requested for XS size and purple color as it is one of my favorite color. My first impression when I saw the product is it looks like flubber, you know one of those jelly rubber toy. I took it out from the packaging and found out that it is quite heavy and yes, it is flubbery hahaha... The two ends of the YogaToes® allows you to easily split it open to slide in your big toe and small toe. The YogaToes® does not feel sticky at all.

I gently slide in my toes into each YogaToes® and just relax and continue doing my work while my kids took their afternoon nap. What a bliss! The first time, I did this for about 5 minutes and it felt weird. My toes were stretched out for 5 minutes and the sensation after taking off YogaToes® is weird of course. The next day, I repeated this again and this time, it does not feel weird at all.

According to the website, it says "As with any conditioning program, YogaToes® might be uncomfortable at first. This most often means your feet really need them! As soon as you put them on, you will feel your feet responding. Pay attention to your feet - we are so used to foot pain, we tend to ignore them." So I guess, this product is working for me!

I am very happy I get to review this and will continue to use it as regularly as I possibly can.

Breast Cancer Awareness Month

~ Posted on Tuesday, October 2, 2012 at 1:48 PM ~

Came across this awesome article highlighting breast cancer awareness in October.

For every 12 months of breastfeeding, a woman can lower her breast cancer risk by 4.3%. Wow! I am still breastfeeding my 3.5 years old boy now on top of tandeming with my 1 year old girl. So that would be over 12%!

And since I'm breastfeeding Alyson, I'm helping to reduce her risk by 26-31%!

Nice!

Dieting...

~ Posted on Thursday, September 20, 2012 at 12:23 AM ~

I have never been the type of person that needed any dieting in order to reduce my weight, in fact when I was 5 months pregnant with my first child I was ordered by my gynae to drink full cream milk everyday until I gained the appropriate amount of weight for the pregnancy phase. I have been a steady 45kg (about 99 pounds) since I was 17 years old, increasing to about 56kg, 58kg max for my pregnancies and then decreasing back to 45kg few months after giving birth.

Anyway, back to the topic of dieting. I was reading through this article on http://www.dietpill-reviews.co.uk/adios-review-2 and I can't help but agree with the review article that states a healthy diet and weight loss program should go hand in hand if success is going to occur. I mean, I can't see how someone can lose weight by following a diet program and eating all the junks and fatty foods, you know?

In my opinion, I do believe that when you plan to go on a diet program and decide to take supplements (such as those that suppresses your appetite), you need to do as much research as you possibly can, ask around for feedback, compare between brands, Google for users' feedback, research the company and brands' reputation and background if possible (in case there are any product recalls or health issues reported).

You will also need to be persistent and maintain a healthy food intake as well when you implement your diet plan. People around you giving encouragement and feedback will greatly boost your confidence so you might consider letting your family members and friends know about your dieting plan.

What do you think about dieting?
