‘Give us a few weeks and we’ll give you a new waistline’

The struggle is real, you guys. Every day getting up and taking care of my has to be a conscious decision. It does not come naturally. Even with my children gone with their dad, I still feel like taking care of my is not a priority. But at some point, I have to be able to sit back, relax and do something to make my health important and my body work better for me. I find that when I am ready, starting off gently can help me make positive changes that last longer. So when I was asked to check out FitTea and to try it to see if this all natural detox tea could help me restart my health motivation, I was pretty excited.

I have done detox before with some success. My problem is that most I have tried are short term. We all know that something becomes a habit after doing it 21 days regularly. Well, when you’re done with the program after 10 or 14 days, it is harder to develop that habit. So I was already hopeful that a gentle detox that comes in the form of a cup of tea would be a more sustainable program.

FitTea contains Organic Green Tea, Oolong Wu Yi, Organic Rooibos, Ginger, Pomegranate, Guarana, Birch, Stevia, Corn and Honey Powder. All of these products are found in nature and that made me more comfortable to try it from the start.These ingredients provide a fast-working and natural detox. These natural ingredients have other benefits besides detox, which includes weight loss, increased energy levels, suppressing the appetite, and natural antioxidants. I don’t know about you, but I can always use help with maintaining a steady energy. But when I read that Natural teas like FitTea have been used all over the world for thousands of years for weight loss and increased energy which helps anyone with a fitness program, I was really open to try it.

After a week or so I am noticing a few things. I do feel a little more energetic and am noticing that I am more on the regular side. But the positive effect are so gentle and subtle that I don’t feel like I am ‘detoxing’. I am just relaxing on the back porch with a nice cup of tea! I have yet to find a negative side effect and am so glad. Sometime detox products can leave you wanting to be really close to home. I have not experienced that with FitTea yet! A real plus, I am telling you!

Another positive side effect is the gentle boost of energy I am feeling. I am actually having my tea and then getting up to do my interval running or to take the dogs on a walk almost every day. In the humid heat of Texas, it is hard to maintain an outside workout schedule. So having to take the tea in the morning starts my motivation to get up and get out before the stale air sets in!

Other positive effects are:

-Boosts immune system
-Promotes fat burning
-Promotes and soothes digestion
-Antimicrobial properties

Let’s face it, belly fat is my main body image issue. I have been asked when I am due or how old my new baby is. When I tell them she is 5, I get that ‘look’. After I get over the rudeness of every asking a woman if she is pregnant, I have to own that fact that my body stores excess fat in my belly area. I have to lose the fat and literally have to change my lifestyle and expectations to do it. Nothing is going to work overnight. But some things will help me sustain a healthier lifestyle and motivate me every day.

The truth is, that is why I was so excited to try FitTea and to see if it would work for me. The tea really does taste like a nice, smooth tea that you would buy in a quality tea store. I drink tea anyway, but normally in the evening, and did not find it hard to add to my morning routine. I simply replaced once of my many cups of coffee with it! I added honey to it a few days and lemon a few others. But, really, the smooth taste did not need it.

I am excited to see what three more weeks on FitTea can do for me. I am already encouraged by the changes it has helped me make so far. I can only imagine with with consistency, a dedication to making the decision to get up everyday and make me a priority and products that help me along, that I will start to have the results I need to make my self healthier!
