Combat Cellulite plus 🍑Knee Saving Leg Workout🍑

Hi guys! Thank you for stopping by. Last week I shared how I was cleansing/detoxing in this post. Today I want to share with you what I will be adding to this week.

 1.Dry Brushing

  You simply take a natural bristle brush and gently brush it in a circular motion over your skin. This stimulates collagen production, boosts circulation and massages the skin which triggers drainage of your lymphatic system. It also exfoliates which gives a nice glow to you skin and eliminates ingrown hairs.

2. Green Smoothie Breakfast: 

The greens are alkaline, cleansing and contain antioxidants which also neutralize unpaired electrons that cause oxidative stress in the body. This stress leads to toxin build up and aging.  When you are consuming greens in a smoothie the cell wall of the greens are broken down. This not only gives your digestive system a break in the morning but makes it easier for your body to assimilate the nutrients in the greens. 

3. Cran-Water +  Rebounder (mini-trampoline):

Toxins are stored in our fat cells and the result is the dimply skin we call cellulite. When we jump on our rebounder we are jarring these toxins, drinking the cran-water aids in flushing toxins out. The flavonoids, enzym es and organic acids found in cranberries emulsify fatty globules and effectively reduce the appearance of cellulite. Cranberries strengthen connective tissues and neutralize free radicals due to their high level of antioxidants. Make this a part of your daily routine and over time your body's PH will change resulting in smoother skin and a healthier body.

4. Detox Baths w Epsom Salts

Epsom salts contain sulfates which are a detoxifier. The magnesium is a relaxant and digestive aid. I love to soak in a hot detox bath at least 3 times a week. I add a few drops of essential oils like lavender to enhance the experience. 

Now for a simple lower body workout that is easy on the knees...

🍑 Leg Workout🍑 
🍑No Squats🍑 
🍑Knee Saving 🍑

One legged Calf raises: 
100 each leg

Side leg raises: 
50 then 50 pulses (little lifts while you’re holding your leg high in the air) per leg x2

Front leg raises:
50 then 50 pulses (little lifts while you’re holding your leg high in the air) per legs 2

Back leg raises:
50 then 50 pulses (little lifts while you’re holding your leg high in the air) per leg x2

Glute bridge: 
50 then 50 pulses x2

One legged dead lift: 100 per leg x2

This is what I am doing to try and get my skin and body ready for summer! I will also try to do 90 counter push ups per day as well and throw in a few crunches. As you can see, the cran-water is key. I am sure you are gathering how much I love it. It is super tart if you aren't used to 100% cranberry juice but I absolutely love it! My SIL's mom, who we all affectionately call Mimi, gave me this water bottle last week. 
It makes it so easy to get my daily water intake in. The times of day are marked on the bottle as a reminder. She said it is better for your pancreas when you sip water in increments. I bought my oldest daughter this one and it should be here today!

I hope everyone has a wonderful week and if you try any of these I would love to know in the comments down below. Praying for all of my readers today.
Grace & Peace,
Adoring Family

  1. I love the water bottle. I'm going to get mine too. I need something with an inscription as yours to keep me motivated.
