Skin Care and More...

A few posts ago a blogger asked about my skin care routine:

My favorite tool is the Clarisonic Plus skin brush. I use it every other day without fail with a mild cleanser containing AHAs. I switch up the brand, but right now I'm using an Obagi product. I also use their Vit C serum on my face, neck and chest after washing. I am using the Aveda Green Science line for moisture and eye cream. I also put an SPF 30 on after all of that.

I eat so very little sugar in my diet and I think this really contributes to the look of my skin. I also drink A LOT of water. These very basic things can make a huge difference!!

In regards to running at 9 mph:

It really wasn't a typo. I really do run between 7 - 9 mph for about 30 min right now. My legs are pretty long and I've always been pretty fast... I was a dedicated soccer player long ago! Perhaps I should have waited a little longer to recover before resuming this speed. My injured calf tightened up quite a bit after that!!

9 MPH - wow so that means you can run a 5km race in under 20 mins - thats impressive by any standards, but even more so if you are injured!

I really enjoyed your article in "Off the Couch" about sabotage. It was extremely insightful. Thank you for being so positive and not allowing the negativity to overpower you.

It's really difficult sometimes to explain one's passion for fitness to others and backlash or being accused of "overdoing it" and getting too "skinny". I eat healthy proteins, whole grains, veggies, nuts, etc. I love my low fat milk and, every now and then, have a fun treat. I feel like I need to down a doughnut with every meal to prove to my family that I'm not "obsessed" with eating "disgustingly" healthy. Thank you for the article; it was very much appreciated! I will continue eating clean, healthy meals, no matter what looks I may get.

Thanks again!

Running at 9 mph puts you at the high end of recreationally elite runners — people who are serious about their running, but not yet world-class athletes. A 9 mph pace is equal to a 6.5 minute mile. Assuming you can sustain this pace for 6.2 miles, you could finish a 10K race in only 40 minutes!

Tosca, Not sure if you are familiar with the EWG in Washington. There website posts products with the hazard rating to our health. The alot of the Obagi products score very high in cosmetic hazards to our health. Thought you should know as its not only important to take care of ourselves from the inside, but also from the outside. Personally, I make my own skin cream, for several years now.

Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though you relied on the
video to make your point. You definitely know what youre talking about, why
waste your intelligence on just posting videos to your weblog when you could be giving us something informative
to read?

This design is steller! You most certainly know how to keep a reader entertained.
Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start my own blog (well, almost.

..HaHa!) Great job. I really loved what you had to say, and more than that, how you presented it.

Too cool!

Hi there this is kinda of off topic but I was wondering if blogs
use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML.

I'm starting a blog soon but have no coding expertise so I wanted to get advice from someone with experience. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Today, I went to the beachfront with my kids. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year
old daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She put the shell to her ear and screamed.
There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is completely off topic but I
had to tell someone!

Great blog! Do you have any hints for aspiring writers?
I'm planning to start my own blog soon but I'm a little
lost on everything. Would you recommend starting with
a free platform like Wordpress or go for a paid option? There are so
many options out there that I'm completely confused .. Any ideas? Kudos!
