Stay the Course

Today,  as I was trying to do 10 things at once because I had a day off and wanted to accomplish everything, I realize how easy it is to fall off course and accomplish nothing! No matter if it’s with your diet, household chores, your business, or any other part of your life… many people have a tendency to let things send them off on a detour.

Sometimes, it may be because we try to get too many things accomplished at once. We are, as a society, multitask oriented.  We even raise our children to be involved in multiple activities which often times conflict with each other and our schedules!

Sometimes, we get distracted by something we discover.  For instance, today I was cleaning out the guest bedroom and happened upon some old business cards… I got to wondering where are these people today? What did I do? I got right on social media  and started to search for them. Before I knew it, 15 minutes had gone by and I hadn’t found anything out about them and was now 15 minutes behind in my schedule to get the room cleaned up and get my daughter from school on time!

Other times we get off course with things such as a diet or exercise. We tell ourselves there’s a great show on TV and missing one day of walking won’t really matter!  Or boy that piece of chocolate cake looks really good, one piece won’t really matter.   And you know what?   Missing just one won’t really matter except often one time or one piece turns into many more   I speak from experience, I have lost the same 6 pounds each month for the last six months!

Many things in life  that are truly important  require persistence and effort.  They require a commitment!    To help you stay on course in your life no matter what it is you’re trying to accomplish, Try these helpful tips:

  1. Remember the WHY, that got you started doing what you are doing.  What was it that made you decide that this was important for you to do? Focus on that.
  2. Each day before you go to bed take five minutes and write down a plan for the three most important things you need to get done the next day.
  3. Set aside a specific time to get those things done and do not let distractions get in the way. If that means locking yourself in the bathroom to get away from the dog and the kids, then do it!

2 Fun Things You Can Do with 10 Minutes. 

OK, so after spending the day cleaning, shopping and preping for Super Bowl 50, I decided to do a little posting about 2 things that only take 10 minutes each.

I wanted to share one of my favorite snacks for parties or gatherings.  I call it my Tostitos dip.  It only takes about 10 minutes together and is always a crowd pleaser.


Ingredients:

  • 8 oz cream cheese
  • 15 oz of your favorite salsa (I use Tostitos chunky salsa medium. Which is how I came up with the name for the dip ;o))
  • 3 oz of sliced black olives
  • 1 cup of shredded cheese of your choice. (I like a Colby/jack blend)

Instructions:

  1. Select a shallow dish. I used a 12 X 12 inch dish.
  2. Spread the cream cheese in an even layer.                                     img_3986
  3. Add the salsa and spread all over the cream cheese.
  4. Sprinkle the sliced olives all over the salsa.                                                                        
  5. Sprinkle the shredded cheese to lightly cover.                                                                  
  6. Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours. This can be made the night before.  
  7. Take it out about 15 minutes before you want to have it. Serve with your favorite tortilla chips.

After I had everything all set, I found myself with a little time for me!  So I treated myself to my favorite exfoliating peel.

This only takes 10 minutes and about 6 drops, but makes my skin feel as though i went to a spa for a facial. It smells heavenly and my skin is soft, smooth and more firm after I rinse it!

At 50, I look forward to these 10 minutes a couple times a week to keep my skin looking younger!

So, there you have it…2 great things to do with 10 minutes!!  One for the crowd and one for you. Enjoy!

Wrapping Wednesday

I have been really working hard to get back to my pre baby self. I would love to get to my before 6 year old self but for right now I am shooting for pre baby.

I have had 3 caesarians and now have the proof to show it. I am not going to lie…I am not a fan my stomach. I love having my girls but I needed to feel better.

I tried so many different diets and workout plans. I started to feel discouraged. After a lot of research I figured out what I needed…It Works. I found Angela and she instantly hooked me up with these great wraps. I started wrapping and noticed a big difference in my skin and my stomach.

Here is little more info about the wraps:

The wraps are ready to go and take just a minute to apply. All you need is saran wrap, an ace bandage or a brace to hold the wrap close to the body- most use saran wrap. The Ultimate Applicator is coated with an all-natural botanical based formula that will tighten tone and firm the skin in 45 minutes with progressive change occurring over the next 72 hours.

 

How will the wraps help my body?

These wraps are designed to target problem areas including fat, cellulite, varicose veins, and stretch marks and will take inches off of your body from the very first application!

 

How often can I wrap?

They are safe enough to use every 72 hours (about 3- 4 days apart on the same area).   You see progressive results over 72 hours. The results last up to 6 months if you change nothing in your diet or exercise program.  Changes are permanent, like any diet, with proper nutrition and exercise, so we want you to take care of your new body!  We love how this product not only affects the SIZE of the body, but the repairing of the skin is incredible.  Stretch marks dramatically lighten and loose, stretched skin becomes firm and tight.

 

How do the wraps work?

The ingredients improve the microcirculation on the area where the body applicator was applied. This is what creates skin tightening, firming and toning. Fat tissue requires a great deal of blood vessels. If we can improve the microcirculation then we can improve the overall health of the area. Finally, they have an anti-inflammatory effect.

You can place the wrap anywhere on your body except the face- we have a special facial applicator which can be used daily as desired. The body wrap can be cut & placed on multiple areas. You can use two wraps at the same time on the body.

 

How do I apply the wrap?

Open the wrap and lay it against the skin and secure it in place with saran wrap or an ace bandage.

How long do I wear the wrap?

You wear the wrap for a minimum of 45 minutes and up to several hours!!! ****DON’T waste a drop of this lotion however.  Don’t throw away the wrap if any product remains!!! Place it somewhere else, even cutting it and moving it to target more skin. Wipe the lotion remaining on the wrap on another area of the body to maximize.

Here are my person results with just one wrap worn for 45 minutes!
