Spinning Class -My New Love!

I have been going to my local gym for the past 5 weeks, and am having a blast. I have tried out several fitness classes -cardio dance, pilates, barre, water aerobics, yoga and cycling/spinning. One of my favorite classes is spinning class!

The workout is super intense, but the endorphins I feel afterward are so worth it. I leave drenched -and happy. I feel proud of myself, knowing that I pushed myself and took care of my body.

A Few Tips:

  • Work your way into the class. Teachers will push you hard, and the class can be super competitive. Make sure, however, that you don’t push too hard, especially if you are just beginning. Injuries can happen if you work too hard too fast.
  • Have your instructor help you adjust your bike to your body. I didn’t do this, and my hand went numb as a result (my handlebar was too low, and I was placing all my weight on my hands.) Now, having the right settings, I am getting a more efficient workout, and my hands feel fine.
  • Bring a water bottle and stay hydrated!
  • Also, bring a hand towel to mop your face and keep the handlebars dry. You will sweat a lot.

If you are looking for an effective workout, cycling/spinning fitness class is a great choice!

Cute Dollar Tree Find!

I found this cute little notebook at Dollar Tree! ❤️🍣🍥🍣❤️ Dollar Tree has some great finds if you’re willing to look!

Sushi is one of my all-time favorite foods. I have fond memories of getting sushi with my dad, as well as with friends in college. I think food has a unique way of bringing people together. ❤️

I plan on using this notebook either as a journal once I have finished up my current one, or as a recipe book. Which use do you vote for? 🙂

XOXO,

Pamper Yourself with… Dr. Teal’s Glow & Radiance Foaming Bath!

Dr. Teal's Glow and Radiance Foaming Bubble Bath

Dr. Teal’s is one of my favorite brands for bath products. I especially love their Epsom salts. I decided to try one of their bubble bath bottles -I chose Glow & Radiance.

As far as bubble baths go, this bottle worked nicely. The bubbles were nice and frothy, and lasted for my entire bath. I loved the gentle citrus scent -it was nice & relaxing. The bubble bath moisturizing without causing any irritation (I have very sensitive skin.) It didn’t leave any residue on my skin or the tub, which was nice too.

I definitely recommend!

This was part of my Walmart Beauty Haul.

Pamper Yourself With … Freeman Watermelon Face Mask!

I love the smell of watermelon, so naturally I had to try this face mask! It’s the Freeman Feeling Beautiful Watermelon + Aloe Cooling Gel Mask. It’s supposed to help soothe and moisturize the skin.

First off, I was able to get 10 uses out of the packet. That’s a pretty good value, considering this mask cost $1.37 at Walmart! It has a generous half ounce of product.

I loved the smell. It was nice and light but still smelled like watermelon. Some artificial watermelon scents are too overpowering. This one was perfect.

It did leave my skin feeling nice and soft. So overall I was pleased!

This product was originally mentioned in my Walmart Beauty Haul blog post.

XOXO,

New Crystals for My Collection!



Bismarck Rocks Crystals Gemstones 1

When I went to Treasures of Sea and Earth last week, I picked up five little beauties for my crystal and rock collection. Here is each rock and their metaphysical properties:


PINOLITH

According to Sage Goddess, “Pinolith infuses the intellect with deep peace for more effective meditations, promotes heartfelt love for self and others, activates the Crown Chakra while simultaneously grounding the mind, keeps you steady in the midst of anxiety.”


SPECTROLITE

According to Sage Goddess, “For the spiritual adventurer, this is the gemstone of self-discovery. Perceive with your inner eye, work to heal patterns that no longer serve you, and uncover your Highest Awareness. You will tap into your deepest sense of wisdom and seeing. It is a stone that strengthens intuition and raises consciousness. It also imparts strength and perseverance. It keeps you on the path of inner healing and new change.”


AFRICAN TURQUOISE

Bismarck Rocks Crystals Gemstones 5

According to Sage Goddess, “Considered the stone of evolution, African Turquoise brings about great change and transformation within life. Its encouraging energy opens minds to the possibility of newness. This stone helps us to see the need for development and metamorphosis, and provides the balance and confidence necessary to further the process of self-development. It will renew your spirit, energy, and path in life.”


KIWI JASPER

Bismarck Rocks Crystals Gemstones 3

According to Healing Stones Healing Crystals, “Kiwi Jasper is a pale seafoam green color with black & clear crystal spotting effect throughout the stones. It’s a nurturing stone, a good stone for the healers to use on the behalf of others. A good stone for people in counseling or therapy, who want to overcome addictions or compulsive behavior, & gather up their strength for the battles ahead (emotional).”


BLUE FLUORITE

Bismarck Rocks Crystals Gemstones 4

According to Sage Goddess, “Natural blue fluorite is, in fact, the stone of flow, which means its entire purpose is to get you back on track and into a state of grace, manifestation, acceptance, and peace. Think of the way an ocean moves. It flows free and wild, surging with a natural tide, allowing and not resisting. In spirit, we need to move like the ocean.”

And those are the five rocks I bought at Treasures of Sea and Earth!
