Goals for everyday

Lately, I have found myself under a lot of stress and I have had trouble managing it.  However, I am pledging to strive to do things that take a little bit of my stress away everyday.

My new goals are really simple things that will help me remember what’s important.  

  1. Find 10 minutes for quiet time everyday.
  2. Live in the moment.  Be present.  Time is priceless.
  3. Make eating healthy an everyday choice.  When you eat better you feel better.  It’s that simple.
  4. Drink more water.  Your body needs water to thrive.
  5. Take care of you.  For you.  For your family and friends.
  6. Give back.  Helping others always brings joy.
  7. Give yourself a break (on occasion) because life is short.

My Favorite Burt’s Bees Products

My Favorite Burt's Bees Products

I have been searching for the perfect skin care products that don’t break the bank.  I absolutely adore Burt’s Bees moisturizers.  I take moisturizing seriously, I am getting to that age where combating wrinkles is important.  I use the sensitive skin moisturizer in the mornings and the night cream at night.  The deep pore scrub I only use 1-2 times a week.

The Intense Hydration Night Cream with Clary Sage is one product that now that I have found it, I can not live without it.  Plus Burt’s Bees have the bonus of being composed of 99% natural ingredients.  My skin has never felt better and all of their products have a very pleasant smell.

This post was not sponsored by Burt’s Bees.  It is my own personal opinion.  I LOVE there products!

Exercise Workout Guide

I have been trying to get back in shape.  I have been doing research to make realistic goals and to have a plan to reach those goals.  The biggest hurdle for me was that when I read what sounded like great workouts, I did not know what some of the exercises meant.  Therefore, I created this workout guide for myself.

Going to the gym with a plan means I am 100% more effective than just showing up and figuring it out.  I am only a week in and I already feel better.  Eating healthy is my biggest challenge ahead of me.  I have always been a water drinker and fairly healthy eater but if my husband brings home a bag of chips it takes a whole lot of will power to keep me away from all the crispy deliciousness.  Hope this guide can help yall when trying to get a workout plan together.  workout-guidePhotos from simple.com, dancespirit.com, fitnessmagazine.compeerfit.com, and skimble.com.  They are great resources for fitness and healthy life style tips.
