In February, we celebrated Love Your Lymph month at The Cellulite Investigation. Now we’re announcing a new event: it’s our Summer Anti-Cellulite Surge! And since I love acronyms (a byproduct of my former military days), let’s just call it SAS from here on out.
So what do you say? Are you ready to get your SAS on with the Cellulite Investigation?
As some of you know from previous posts, I recently moved from south Florida to Maryland. My new life here feels like the perfect opportunity to renew my efforts in banishing the blight.
For one, I left mon amour behind in South Florida so I have extra time on my hands now that I’m a geographic bachelorette. I also have a bit more disposable income thanks to the new job. This means I can finally test drive more of the products and treatment options that have come up in the course of our investigation.
The warm weather is another motivation behind the Summer Anti-Cellulite Surge. Exercise seems to come more naturally in the summer months, don’t you think?
I usually try to follow the scientific method when testing a new cellulite treatment. If there’s too many new variables thrown in the mix at once, it’s hard to know which one caused which effect. And then how could I tell my fellow cellulite investigators if a certain treatment option is truly effective?
For the Summer Anti-Cellulite Surge, I’m taking a different approach. Instead of the scientific method, it’s the firehose option. It’s all the cellulite treatments I’ve been wanting to try but haven’t gotten around to yet.
Here are the ones I’m going to start with:
Dietary changes: Farm-fresh food can be difficult to find when you move to a new town, so I was excited to find out there’s a Whole Foods just four miles from my house. It’s the biggest one I’ve ever seen. I’ve already found all kinds of “super foods” I’ve been wanting to try. Can’t wait to discuss them with you.
A new approach to exercise: I usually stick to yoga or weight training when I workout, but I’ve been shamefully inconsistent over the last several months due to the hectic cross-country move. I was thinking about trying the program from Physique 57 (from the CI post about thigh dancing), but then I discovered Exercise TV On Demand. It has tons of free workout routines so I’m going to try that first. I like free.
A certain supplement from Standard Process: There’s one specific supplement I’ve been curious about for a long time. I’m wondering if it’s just what my body needs, considering my history of fluoroderma. I finally ordered it for the upcoming SAS (more details to follow).
A new form of self-massage: Along with dry brushing, massage was one of the first treatments I tried when I started addressing my cellulite. But I’ve often wondered if massaging just the legs is enough. The lymphatic system is a whole-body system. If you release congestion in other areas, it makes sense it would have a positive effect on lymphatic flow throughout the body. I’ve had tender “knots” in my back for a long time, so the idea of being able to do effective self-massage on the back is really appealing to me. Rumble Roller, here I come…
Want to participate in the Summer Anti-Cellulite Surge? Are there treatments you’ve been curious about trying but haven’t gotten around to for one reason or another? Please share your SAS ideas in the comments below.
I’m still figuring out how to set up our forum, but feel free to come over and say hi while I’m working on it. It’s always nice to hear from my fellow cellulite investigators!
