Happy Friday! If you follow along on Instagram then you saw that my workout yesterday really took it out of me! (You can follow me at @wynnsparksfly) It also was so much fun I would do it 100 times. The music and the moves made me feel young and fun. It was not easy at all but that’s ok. I was alone in my living room just having fun and that’s what matters. Give this video a shot. (It’s free)
The 2000s hits are so much fun and this is for all levels. Let me know if you had as much fun as I did!
I love reading magazines and I like to take pictures of the fun facts I see inside so I can remember and research more later. So I thought I would share some of them with you.
This may not be right for me, I feel like this seems cold lol I mean maybe while I am sleep and I do think I am happy when I sleep so maybe it is true.
My mom always told me to eat the peel.
I really think this is true! I always feel great when I start working out, give yourself the gift of happiness.
So I missed one the ages already. As I think back 23 was hard, I was out of college and figuring out paying bills and real life. I may not say it was the happiest but I will let you know at 69 how it goes.
I 100% think this is accurate. I mean everyone I talk to is taking time to themselves for self reflection or meditation. There are so many apps now to guide you. Do you meditate?
As a former dancer I love this, I love to dance and the memory skills involved are a great way to exercise the mind. So go do a little dance!
Ok, be honest, who knew this? I am going to try doing it and see if I notice a difference.
I am not a big drinker at all but I find this fact to be very disheartening. I think it is something all women need to be aware of.
Liquid Gold, literally, I had forgotten how beneficial Honey in your diet was until reading EatingWell Magazine the other day. Since then I have been putting it into my smoothies and the natural sweetener is subtle and the benefits huge.
Allergy Relief – anti-inflammatory effects can reduce seasonal allergy symptoms
Loaded with antioxidants which prevent cellular damage. Some studies show it boosts postmenopausal women’s memory
Antioxidants can also help lower Blood Pressure, Improve Cholesterol, Lower Triglycerides
Helps the body Absorb Calcium
Sleep Aid – can cause a rise in insulin and release serotonin which the body can convert to melatonin – can help to regulate the sleep and wake cycles
Treats Dandruff – Honey diluted with 10% warm water and apply it to problem areas can relieve itch and reduce scalp scaling
Natural Antibiotic that can be used on wounds and burns to promote healing and reduce inflammation
Antibacterial and Antifungal properties
Natural Sweetener for cooking
Keep in mind having Honey one time is not going to change your life, you need to incorporate it into your diet on a daily basis. 1 Tablespoon a day has been shown to give people these benefits.
I get all natural local honey in my grocery store. Try adding it to your cooking and let me know what you think!
Recently a friend introduced me to some new skin care products, make up and hair care. I have really enjoyed the products I have tried so of course I am going to share. 🙂
I try to be knowledgeable about what goes into the products I put in and on my body. It can be very difficult to get a lot of information about beauty products or personal care products because they are not monitored or required to leave out harmful chemicals. Recently there has been a large surge in people bringing awareness to this issue, including my girl Kourtney Kardashian. (As you know I love my reality TV)
I would really love to be able to go to the store and know that the products on the shelf are safe. We just aren’t there yet. Other countries are far ahead of us in this area.
Anyway! BeautyCounter, these products never use 15000+ ingredients that are harmful (including the 14000 banned from being used in European countries). 80% are naturally sourced or plan derived. The most important part to me is the transparency! They share everything that they are using, no guessing games. They also keep up on all the research being done to continue to grow and develop only the best safe products for your use.
I have been using one of their holiday bundles (which was a great deal) it includes the cleansing balm, balancing facial mask, moisturizer and brightening oil. I have loved each one. The cleansing balm is different than any cleanser I have used, it is thick and tacky but after using for about 2 weeks now it really works great. My skin feels soft and clean with a brightness. TIP: use a washcloth to rinse off to ensure you remove all the balm. After cleansing I use the mask twice a week, as it dries you can really see it getting into all of your pores and tightening your skin. I love to really get in deep to my pores so this is great for that.
The brightening oil I use twice a week as well and it just gives my skin a little kick and adds to the softness. Especially during the winter this is great to counter act the dry air. The Adaptive Moisture Lotion is by far my favorite! The texture rubs on so smooth and a little goes a long way making it last. The smell in AMAZING and the way it balances out my skin all day long really makes it look and feel great.
Take a look at the link below for so many more products and what options are out there for you to get safer personal care products you don’t have to worry about! Tina Herbert has introduced me to these and is a great source of information. Don’t hesitate to ask her questions.
It’s time to get started! Starting tomorrow June 11 the Food Challenge begins, lasting 21 days. Join me by commenting or emailing us.
For 21 Days we will be eliminating the following items from our daily diet. It’s that easy. No measuring, calorie counting, following specific meals we are simply going to eliminate items that will help our daily health.
Cake or cake like items /example donuts
Soda/Pop/Coke (whatever you call it) even diet
