Happy Friday Eve! 🙂
Sorry for the lack of posting lately- just have been super busy & honestly NOT too much exciting stuff has been going on in my life…and sometimes, well, that’s fine by me 🙂
Last night Craig was out of town- he flew out to Dallas- just for one night/ two days…so he will be back tonight! YAY! I hate when he’s not home. So dinner was kind of boring- I just roasted yellow squash, fresh mushroom, & zucchini for a bit & then topped it with tomato sauce & parmesan cheese. I had some bread with it to…to make it more filling. It was quite tasty, even if it was kind of boring 🙂
I also got caught up on Bachelor Pad last night- I had a few episodes DVR-ed, so I made it a Bachelor Pad marathon kind of night. I have to say, I’m glad I didn’t watch them when they were actually on, it’s SO nice to fast forward through all of the boring parts- i.e- some of the dates, and all of the other stuff. I just wanted to see who won 🙂 I was really thinking that Tenley was going to win…I was surprised Natalie was chosen over her. If you watched it, who did you want to win?
Anyways, this morning got off to a good start- got a 6 mile run in- woo hoo! I kept all of the miles are 8:30- not too shabby, if I do say so myself 😉 Now for my half marathon I’d like to keep the time around 7:45/ 8:00 minutes per mile, but I guess I’ll just kind of play it by ear.
When I got done with my shower, my tummy was HUNGRY..so for something quick, I heated up a Golden Corn VitaTop & topped it with some low sugar grape jelly.
While driving to work I decided to stop for some Starbucks- I kind of have a new tradition of getting Starbucks on Thursdays…it’s kind of like the week is almost over celebration- haha 😀
When I got to work, I had breakfast: Egg whites & a sandwich thin with peanut butter & 1/2 of a banana.
Lunch was also the usual:
Have you tried to Cinnamon/ Pecan Special K? OMG- it is SO good.
I could sit down & eat the WHOLE box…easily. LOVE the stuff.
If you eat Special K, what’s your favorite flavor?
So, I was browsing the internet today, and came across this article on 14 Health Products You Probably Don’t Need. Of course I had to read it & find out if I was guilty of purchasing any. See if you are too- and let me know 🙂
1. The INFAMOUS Shake Weight
This just made me laugh! 😀 These commercials are always HILARIOUS!
Don’t worry, I was born that way 🙂 They never bother me, and the doctor said I would only need to worry about ‘fixing’ them if they started to bother me. And the way the ‘fix’ them is awful- they actually have to BREAK them, and then they put the bone in place with metal rods- YIKES! I like my toes just the way they are, thanks 😉
6. Colon Cleansers
I have never used one of these products. It is TOTALLY unnecessary though because your body does a great job on it’s own of cleaning out the toxins- no need to throw other stuff into it.
**On a side note, I am getting a colonoscopy done on Monday- YUCK! I have had like 7 before, so it’s no big deal…the worst part is the prep. If you’ve never had a colonoscopy- lucky you, I’m jealous :D- but for the prep you have to drink this fluid that COMPLETELY cleans you out. It’s disgusting & tastes like salt water…BLAH! But, I need to have one done to see what’s going on with my Crohn’s disease situation. I am thinking though, that if these ‘colon cleanse’ products work like the stuff they give you for the colonoscopy prep, then that is AWFUL!! & why in the world would you EVER want to put yourself through that- which is sitting on the toilet ALL day, pretty much. (Sorry to be so detailed- lol!)
7. Moisturizing clothes (<—–WHAT?!?!?!? HAHA- I’ve NEVER heard of these!!)
Oh, I have heard of something similar- I guess they are supposed to help block cellulite. Hmmmmm…definitely don’t believe that one! Cellulite is hereditary..and if your Mom has it, you probably will too…even if you work out non-stop to get rid of it. We all need to embrace it instead 🙂
10. Anti- Wrinkle Creams
I’m not sure about this one either. I USED to use this special lotion before bed for wrinkles, not that I have any right now but I wanted to help stop them, but I just use regular lotion now. I’ve heard mixed things about these creams. I guess we won’t if they actually work until we are older!
I KNEW these things didn’t work, even when they first came out. It’s kind of funny because the commercial acts like all you need to do is wear these shoes and you will instantly have an AWESOME figure..no need to even workout- HA!
14. Ear Candles
EW! This picture creeps me OUT! What the heck is going on here???
Supposidly they are supposed to help draw wax out of your ears. That just seems SO strange to me- putting a candle MADE of wax into your ear to help take OUT the wax?!
Thanks Health.com for a fun article to read 😀
Ok, now SPILL! Tell me what ad has convinced you that you HAVE to have that certain product!!
As for these products, I’m ALL about the Airborne.
I’m looking forward to watching Big Brother this weekend. I haven’t watched it yet because Craig wasn’t home last night & we like to watch it together, so I DVR-ed it for this weekend! (so, please don’t tell me who won 🙂 )
Hope you all have a GREAT night!!
