I hope everyone's week has started out fabulous!
I've been so broke lately I haven't had the money to get any kind of face wash or cream. I've been using Oil of Olay for the past year or longer, which has worked. But the more I educate myself on health and fitness the more I don't want to be putting crap, meaning unneeded chemicals,
The other day I was at Fred Meyer, in the organic section and found some products I'm loving!! I have used the shampoo and conditioner before and let me tell you, it will transport you directly to a tropical location! Alba Botanica is the brand. They are mostly organic, 100% vegetarian, NO animal testing, Parabens, Sulfates, & Phthalates free! Better for our bodies, animals & planet. They also have an average rating of 5.6 for health on the Good guide product list.
If your wondering what the Good guide is? It's a website that you can put in any product you want and find out how good it is for you. I'm still researching the website myself but so far I think products are rated on a scale of 0-10 and the have different categories like, Health, Environment, Society and Overall. They have an Iphone app that I'm going to get that allows me to scan the item before I buy it.. How cool is that! I love my Iphone! Here's a quick video on what the Good guide is...
I got the Face cream which doesn't have any sunscreen in it.. but maybe they have one that does. I will check next time. I also got some body oil that's amazing and some Coconut Milk face wash. So far I really like them. And it makes me warm and tingly to know that I'm doing something better for animals and the planet!
I had a great workout on Sunday.. It always surprises me how fast you lose your stamina when your not working out as you should be. Lately I haven't been doing a lot of H.I.I.T training and this workout about killed me. Plus I haven't been drinking as much water as I should be and I really noticed a big difference in how I felt doing this super intense workout. In fact, let's keep it real here, I had to stop more than once and catch my breath because I thought I might pass out. How embarrassing would that be?!! Maybe I shouldn't push myself so hard but honestly I don't know how not to.
