Beautiful Body – Day 19 & 20

Your body has an amazing first line of defense called skin. It protects your muscles, organs & bones. It holds us together and puts up with our tattoos, piercings & writing notes on the palm of our hand.
And how do we show kindness to the tissues of life that cover our entire being?

Well (deep breath) in BEAUTIFUL BODY Challenge  hopefully we’re…

  • Drinking lots of water.
  • Eating foods that are nutrient rich.
  • Meditating. (That’s in the BEAUTIFUL SOUL Challenge)
  • Using products that don’t have long & hard to pronounce names. Keep it simple.
  • Choose a self-care night to indulge in a clay mask, foot soak and bubble bath. (Make up your own routine.)

 Try to focus on a good skin care regime. It might not always work out but say this first, “I’m worth it” and then MAKE IT HAPPEN.

Skin Fit: Whipped body butter that looks so good you’ll want to eat it! But don’t.

Throw a DIY SPA PARTY by inviting a few friends to bring ingredients and all of you can mix up batches of creams, lotions, bath bombs and much more.

Foodie Fit: I follow the Domestic Geek  and couldn’t choose just one of her meal prep videos so I made a playlist. She’s worth the subscription & I hope you’ll follow her channel.

Beautiful Body – Day 17 & 18

 

Okay I’ll admit it, I use to think that people who read ingredient labels & nutrition facts were a bit extreme. STOP THE PRESS! I’M ONE OF THEM NOW. Perhaps you’re of us too 😉


Let’s cover some general info and remember it’s the back of the packaging that matters most. Don’t trust the advertising on the front. For example natural means NOTHING and organic has classifications.

  1. This tells you what one serving is according to the measurements. (What! I can’t eat the whole bag?) In other words if I ate two of these I would consume double the DV. (DV: Daily Value)
  2. The DV is listed for fats, sodium, carbohydrates and so on. (Processed or packaged food requires a longer shelf life. You might see higher sodium content.)
  3. Nutrition facts such as vitamins and minerals. Fats are broken down too. This varies by country. (I like New Zealand chocolates and I’m always reading their nutrition facts. So simple.)
  4. This list ingredients and  it goes from greatest amount to least as you read down the items.

Be in the KNOW and empower yourself.

 

Skin Fit: Who doesn’t like a good body butter?! This vlog has the recipe in the description box & the how-to steps.

I don’t always have time to DIY but I enjoy shopping local. Especially when the crafter enjoys their work. Check out farmers market for organic skin care products. (And always read labels)

Foodie Fit: Okay, I had to share this one… Vegan Mac & Cheese!

I grew up in Hawaii so coconut oil, coconut fresh milk & coconut meat was plentiful.  Today it’s such a money maker and we should never assume it’s organic. Read labels. The best milk is from the coconut itself and some Asian stores in the PNW carry them. Yippee!

Dance Fit: So I can’t dance as good as these kids but who cares. I just do my own thing. 😉
