I know that this is a long journey and lately that long road ahead of me has made me lose sight of goals. I am being ridiculous but thats ok because talking through this helps.
These are things that I must stop saying...
JUST REST TODAY ITS OK NOT TO WORK OUT: this does not help me. If I have a legit reason not to work out then thats one thing but sometimes its more just I don't want to. I was working out 5 days a week and now I am lucky to get in 3... EMBARRASSED
ITS OK TO EAT MORE BECAUSE ITS HEALTHY: my portions are getting bigger lately... I need to start focusing on eating slow and thinking about why I am eating. Focus on health and feeling good not about mmm that tastes good lets eat more.
YOU HAVE SO FAR TO GO YOU MAY AS WELL CHEAT TODAY: I am not a big cheater - my worst cheats are from the above mentioned. I may eat healthy but calories in healthy foods still count! I also have to stop cheating myself out of a workout. The back injury and then getting sick got me out of my routine and I fell into bad habits again.
It's weird how quickly you can get out of a routine. I have to tighten my belt and keep my head focused on the goal.
BE HEALTHY FIT AND ACTIVE SO THAT YOU ARE A BETTER WOMAN INSIDE AND OUT!
I CAN DO THIS SHIT
I have a slight mint obsession.
I love all things mint. I love mint in food and drink but I also really love mint bath products.
Here is a brief product review of my current minty fresh toiletries
BioInfusion Rosemary Mint shampoo and conditioner. This is a Walgreens brand and is currently on major sale at $5 a bottle. WHAT? I love mint shampoo and conditioner and have used many different brands. The reason I like this one is it actually makes your scalp tingle which I love. Its also not tested on animals and is paraben and sulfate free which is always a plus. If you need to try a new shampoo/conditioner I highly recommend it.
Dr. Teal's RELAX. Eucalyptus Spearmint bubble bath and epsom salts. This is great after a long hard day and great after a tough workout to relax your muscles and senses. I like to follow this up with mint tea.
Mirra Daily Body Wash - Rosemary Mint. It smells fabulous and has quinoa protein and vitamin A.
And last a favorite for years Bath and Body Works Aromatherapy Stress Relief in Eucalyptus Spearmint. I love everything they make- their shampoo and conditioner is also really nice but doesn't have the tingle factor. I use the body mist at night and I also use the linen spray and have since I was in about 8th grade. I LOVE THAT STUFF
Just an FYI
