I Work Out

IMG_0533

 

So it has been a solid two weeks of dedication. Hubby and I have really taken to getting into out fitness. We have cut down on the amount of fast food we eat. I started to cook some meals rather than only relying on him to feed us.

I started to make sure I eat at least 5 times a day. Three meals and two snacks, although it seems to turn into three snacks and two meals. I have been really changing my relationship with food and am truly enjoying the journey.

I ran my first mile in years. Although it was 11 minutes I shaved off 3 seconds of my time already. I love what my body is able to do. I am still learning to use my mind over my body. I can get in the zone but it doesn’t last as long as I would like. Slowly but surly I am building the healthiest I can be.

Coco and Peanut Butter Oats

One day my co-worker walks in with a mason jar with what looked like lumpy goo. As I asked he informed me it was Overnight oats. The other day I had a flash back of this conversation and went to my handy dandy Pinterest and picked three recipes to try. I made my list and headed to the super market (which I hate but I was determined and cheap.)

The first receipt I tried was Coco and Peanut Butter Overnight Oats

fullsizeoutput_375

1/3 cup plain Greek yogurt

1/2 cup rolled oats

2/3 cup unsweetened milk of choice

1 tablespoon chia seeds or flax seed

1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

2 tablespoons peanut butter

2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder

Pinch of salt

0-2 tablespoons honey or maple syrup

My first try I used

Unsweetened Almond Milk

1 tablespoon honey

I tolerated it. I did not love it. It was actually super biter. I used original coco and also just one table spoon of honey. Next time I will use either 2 tablespoons of honey or maple syrup. But it did fill me up for much longer than scrambled eggs and I felt so adult that I was able to actually follow through!

Tomorrow will be my Apple Sauce cinnamon experience!

Real Time Product Review

My worse quality I have is the inability to trust. The number one thing I do not trust are companies and products. I research the hell out of products before I finally choose one to purchase. I am so frugal about things but hey its my hard earned money. So you will only get real life reviews of products and always keep it real.

So I am very very light skinned. Recently I showed two different co-workers my legs from my ASAP Smoothie and they both reacted with such shock when they saw how pasty my legs are. So from then on I have been researching for the best self tanner. I have tried Jergen’s but it takes a little too long to build up that tan and wanted something better and faster working.

From many reviews I stumbled upon St. Moriz Instant Tanning Mouse. It had nothing but good reviews over all. The only negative reviews I read were of the way shipping was handled. I found this great deal for 2 for 15 and just went to grab the link and it is now 10.78 best deal EVA ! So this is the best time to try. They sell one for 10.00 at my local Walgreens.

The pictures up top are obviously my legs and this is only after one time applying. I put it on right after my night time shower and exfoliating. When I woke up I was especially surprised to find there were no streaks! It was all put on evenly. It does have that spray tan smell. This picture is after my morning shower. The tan lasts more than I expected. This is defiantly a great build on tan. It does get darker with every apply. Don’t worry about being too dark each wash you lose about 20%. And you need to use gloves!! I got too excited and put it on with my hands and my palms looked like I was making mud pies in my backyard.

I took a poll with some people and it was great! Especially from my boyfriend who hates me tanning or self tanning. He said he was shocked at how dark I was and not orange like when I get a spray tan at the salon. So if you need some color especially before summer give this a try!
