Drink More Water!

I've been forcing myself to drink more water!  Of course when I'm working out, I drink plenty of water!  But during the day I was not!

I don't drink too much pop anyways (maybe a total of one can per week), but now that I've discovered Trader Joe's Sparkling Water, I don't even want pop!  They come in Mandarin Orange, Raspberry Lime, Lime, and Lemon!  So good!  Sometimes I add a bit of lemon or lime juice!

Zero calories, zero sodium!

Of course, there's always plain water (what a thought)!  I keep a glass on the kitchen counter all the time to remind me, while I'm in the kitchen, to gulp down some water!

It's great for your skin! I swear mine looks better!

Been Awhile!

Floss every day!

It's been far too long since I've posted in my beauty blog!  I thought I'd show you a few of my favorite products!

Well, floss isn't really one of my favorite products, but it's a must have for your beauty regiment!  Floss at least once a day!

Almay Makeup Remover Pads

My daughters and I have been using these convenient Almay makeup remover pads for years.  The problem is, they are getting way too costly!  This container of 120 pads costs almost $7.00, so I'm up for less expensive ideas for removing eye makeup!  It can't be oily though!

Olay Total Effects

I'm smart enough to know that these anti-aging products probably aren't going to really make any dramatic improvements in my skin, but stupid enough to buy them!!

I just want some miracle product that will pull my skin up a bit!

I love this Olay Total Effects "mature skin therapy"!!

So there you have it, some of my favorites!

Would love to hear about your favorite beauty products!

This Stuff Made Me Whiter!

I'm already a white girl with skinny chicken legs, I don't need to be whiter!  Geez!  All I want is a little hint of a healthy tan!

Nivea Sun-Kissed Radiant Skin

This Nivea Sun-Kissed Radiant Skin Lotion is terrible!  I swear I am whiter! 

I guess I'll go back to the Jergens Natural Glow Lotion!

Let me know if you've had a better experience with the Nivea stuff!

Some quick dinners!

When I read my post about motivating you to walk, I thought it was awful! I sounded so condescending (and I had to look up how to spell that word)!  So sorry!

I am oh-so-far-from perfect!  I was just trying to motivate anyone that reads my blog!

When I first attempted to workout, honestly, I could do 8 minutes tops!  When I first attempted to run, I could go may 10 feet, if that!

I'm putting up a few pictures of some of my favorite Lean Cuisines.  I don't eat them all them time, but they're good for a quick meal, and very low in calories!

One of my favorites (I love Indian food)

Another quick idea for dinner is to take a piece of foil, with a bit of olive oil on it, add a chicken breast or piece of fish.  Then top it with some onions, veggies, whatever you like!  Wrap it up tight, put it in a 350 degree oven for about 30 minutes, and you have a light and delicious meal!  If you like, you can even brown it a bit before doing this!

Again, I am not perfect, but I do love to motivate others!

Good luck!

More Beauty Products

Thanks for stopping by!  First, I want to know if you're taking my advice and have starting walking!?  I hope so!  The next step will be to get to a gym!

Speaking of the gym, my first product is self tanner.  My advice:  don't use it when it's raining, or you're going to be working out!  I forgot I had applied the self tanner that morning, went to the gym, and of course, I did sweat!  I didn't know, until I got home, that I had these lovely streaks of brown all over my arms!  Funny, huh!!?

My second product is from Philosophy, a shower gel, called "Happy Birthday Beautiful!".  If you sign up for the awards thing at http://www.sephora.com/ or just at the store, on your birthday you get a gift!  This was my gift (in May).  It's so nice to have the smell of cake in the morning!  The cake smell does not stay on your skin, but the fragrance is there while you're showering!  I also have a yummy chocolate version!

My 3rd product is Kerastase Mouse Substantive.  There's a quick story behind this.  My haircolorist used this on  my hair and I loved it, so I was going to buy it while I was there, but they were out of it.  Shortly after I arrived home, the receptionist called me, she had found a bottle of this wonderul mouse.  So I dashed up there, bought it, and to my horror, this bottle cost of $30.00.  I'm embarrassed to even say that!  I should have just said "no thanks", but I didn't.  The other part (that's kind of funny), is the bottle says "for mature hair", oh geez, thanks!

So there ya go!  Good luck with your walking, running, or whatever you're doing to stay active!

If you have a product you'd like to review, I'd love for you to share!

I'm talking to you

Yes, I'm talking to you!

You're the one that knows you need to loose weight.  You know you need to have a healthier diet.  You know you should start working out.

But your negative side gives you all kinds of reasons not to start.  You're too tired, you don't want to go to a gym, you don't have time to make healthy meals.  Maybe you even have bad knees, but did you know swimming is easy on the joints!?

I'm your positive side, telling you that you CAN do it! 

You're going to start tomorrow.  You're going to take at least a 15 minute walk.  I don't care where.  You can just walk around your house.

The next day you'll take at least a 20 minute walk.  I guarantee, after a week, you will have more energy!

I'm going to add some easy, healthy recipes to this blog soon, so keep watching. 

I will be here for you, and I'll be pushing you more in the future! 

You can do it!

Two products to tell you about!

Bumble & Bumble Hair Powder and L'Oreal Revitalift Cream Cleanser

I'll start with L'Oreal Revitalift Radiant Smoothing Cream Cleanser (with revitalizing vitamin C and gentle exfoliating action).  I've gotten into the habit of using an exfoliating cleanser every morning.  This one is my lastest to try, what I don't like is that it's too smooth feeling.  My last exfoliating cleansers had a light "grit" feel, which made me at least think it was exfoliating!  So I'll use this one up and try another one!

Do you have that week or so before your next haircolor when you wish your appointment was sooner!?  I LOVE this product:  Bumble and Bumble Hair Powder (I have brown).  It was produced as a dry shampoo, but a small spray of this on your roots, and "poof!" those little hints of gray are gone!  I bought this months ago, and there's still plenty in, since I only use it a few times a month!  It seemed quite pricey, at about $30, but it's been well worth it!

Smile!  That's the best beauty product!
