You Don't Want To Miss This Noxgear Giveaway

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Noxgear. All opinions expressed are my own and honest in nature. Use code AMYGLASS and save 35%. 

Whether you workout before work or after work, chances are if you workout outside you'll be working out in the darkness or very dim light.

And one of my major pet peeves is to see runners or walkers or cyclists or really anyone out and about who doesn't make sure that they can be seen.

Because the majority of my workouts are before Hubby goes to work, and usually I'm solo, safety has always been a priority for me. And when I say that I won't run outside in the dark / low light/ fog without my Noxgear, I'm serious.

Strengthen Your Core With The Bellyminator

 Full Disclosure: I received products free of charge for the purpose of providing a review. My opinions are completely my own based on my experience.

I don't believe in quick fixes. I don't believe in gimmicks, pills, potions and magical shakes. I know others swear by certain products, but in my own opinion I think it takes dedication, eating healthy, and exercise (whatever form that you choose that works best for you). So when I heard about the Bellyminator I was a little skeptical, cause I just wasn't so sure. But I was curious enough to try it. So it did at least have the curiosity factor for me.

The Bellyminator is a really simple device. It's touts to be "The only all-day ab trainer in the world" It's basically a strap that you wear around your waist with a little buckle that 'snaps' when you release your abs. It seemed simple, a little too simple.

For me, the setup wasn't as easy as the packaging suggested. I had a hard time finding 'a spot' to put the pad. No matter where I put it, it would disengage or just poke me. At first I had it too tight. Then I had it too loose. I tried several different places before I found 'the spot' that worked for me. So on the first day I didn't wear it very long, and really didn't think this device was going to work for me. The packaging directions say to only wear it 20-40 minutes the first few days.

Well, the second day, while I was doing housework, I thought I would give the Bellyminator another try. By this point, I had the setup correct, so all I had to do was put it on my waist and snap it. It took about 5 minutes for it to stop snapping every minute (because I was releasing my stomach). I went about my business cleaning the house, when I realized it hadn't snapped in awhile. My first thought was "this thing isn't working". But, to my surprise, it was still engaged, cause, well, my abs were still engaged. Yep, I was engaging my abs without thinking about it. How freaky is that! I mean, this little strap had me subconsciously holding my stomach in, which I believe, is the object of the Bellyminator. It's a device to get you to support your core.

When I went to put the Bellyminator on the 3rd day, well, I had to take it in. Yep, it was too big. Keep in mind, I'm running and lifting weights etc. So I can't say that using the Bellyminator alone caused the difference, but I will say that I think that it helped. So I had to re-adjust the strap to make it tighter.

I have weak abs. And I haven't been able to wear it longer than 20 minutes at a time.  But if you are looking for a device to help you strengthen your core, I think the Bellyminator might be worth your time checking out.

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
