As mentioned before, and as some of you have noticed on FB, I signed up with BeautiControl in November with the sole intention of getting a discount on the skincare products I love and use. Over the span of February, I unearthed some hidden motivation that I didn’t know existed and decided to become a consultant. I’ve had a myriad of reasons for this with “finding independent sources of income” as one of them. I am delighted by how my new little business has blossomed in such a short amount of time! I know not everyone is receptive and that is OK. These products speak for themselves and I am not going out of my way to “push” anyone into anything. Just sharing my own 23 years experience and sharing the products. So far, I am impressed by the honest responses I am receiving as well as the monetary and incentive rewards I have received. I’ve already received a commission check and all I did was share! I am excited to see how this new adventure blossoms for me. The best part is how I feel about myself now. I am no longer overwhelmed with the doom and gloom of my life. It brightens my day and I can’t be happier with how my face is looking now that I’ve dumped my hippy lifestyle….or at least dumped my hippy face washing regimen….and started treating myself with more respect and love.
2: Fitbit Zip
Thanks to Katrina over at Sota is Sexy for talking about the Fitbit pedometer. I LOVE this little guy. Having a fun little pedometer has made me more conscious of how inactive I truly am. I mean, I knew it before but now it’s a slap in the face how lazy I am. A human needs to walk 10,000 steps per day to be healthy and 15,000 steps per day to lose weight. Before I started, I thought….Noooooo Problemo!! WRONG. I walk, on average, a sad 3,000 steps per day. Only once did I reach 11,000 steps and man I was like a little busy body all over the place. My job does not accommodate so many steps in one day and when I get home I am tired and sit around some more. I have to admit, I’ve been really good about keeping my Zip on me at all times (even when I sleep, otherwise I forget to reattach it to my body) and I like how even on my lazy days I am reminded that I am lazy. No head in the sand anymore. I am working on my motivation….something I’ve been lacking for years…and am determined to increase my steps per day no matter how long it takes or what I have to do.
3: Big Love
Yes, you read that right. I am the first to admit that I like bizarre t.v. and just watched the entire series of Big Love. Normally I am fond of the train wreck that reality television brings because I am fascinated by people being people but this drama was actually really good, offering insight into a world I know nothing about. I have no interest in polygamy nor do I understand how any woman could be ok with sharing her husband. Not to mention how unfair I think it is that a man can screw around with other women but the women are not allowed to follow suit. BUT, I must admit I became fond of the characters and really enjoyed watching this story unfold and learning about a way of life that seemed so foreign to me.
