Almond Milk – and Why You Should Make the Switch

For years, I’ve been hearing about the almond milk phenomena and quietly ignoring it and going about my ways. Often even thinking, “oh people are so dramatic/snobs… just drink milk. sheesh” I know…how terrible of me. Of course, those who are lactose intolerant are an exception, but why does every other person have to rave about the damn thing? its just milk!

Until a few months ago…when for reasons that are blurry right now, I went and bought almond milk. What’s the big deal… does it even taste good? Isn’t it so expensive? I’m perfectly happy with my 1%.

Daily Recommendation: Curad Cast and Bandage Protector

July 15: Curad Cast and Bandage Protector

I’ve  been using the Curad cast and bandage protector on my foot cast to take showers and I can’t even begin to tell you how easy and effective it is! It’s basically a slip on and it stays tight at your calf/knee – whichever part of your leg you decide to pull it up to. I was apprehensive if it was going to keep my cast COMPLETELY dry, especially for the duration of the entire shower, but to my pleasant surprise, it did! Not once, not twice but every single time. They are slip resistant and reusable, so one pack (of 2) will last you several weeks (I intend to use mine for the entire duration of my cast wearing days, 6 weeks.)  Continue reading “Daily Recommendation: Curad Cast and Bandage Protector”

I never do a daily recommendation without having tried the product out for myself. But like all rules, there are exceptions. And while I have not tried out this 15 minute exercise pattern in the order in which suggested, I am done every single one of those exercises and I know they WORK! So, while I give this workout a try every day, I thought I would share it with you so you could do it with me too!  Continue reading “Daily Recommendation: 15 Minute Workout”

If you follow me on Snapchat, then you know that earlier this week I finally bought a pair of Yoga Toes to help with my Plantar Fasciitis and as promised, I’m here with a review.

Daily Recommendation: Abreva

May 29/30: Abreva

I rarely get cold sores, but when I do, it is one of the ugliest things to visually see and physically feel. I used to do household remedies like treating it with toothpaste overnight, to dry. Not the most effective tool but desperate times call for desperate measure. That is until I discovered Abreva, thanks to a doctor friend of mine. Abreva has been around for ages, so it’s certainly not a new discovery. Having said that, a lot of people I know don’t use Abreva when they have a cold sore. So, I thought I would bring some light to it.

April 27: Aveeno Clear Complexion Daily Moisturizer 

Screen Shot 2016-04-27 at 11.13.47 PM

I have been using Aveeno’s clear complexion daily moisturizer for several years now, and recently tried a few different products, just to see if anything would fit my skin better. I’m happy to report, nothing has come close, not even my beloved Lush products. The Aveeno face moisturizers have the perfect blend of consistency, soothing feel and effectiveness. I have really dry skin and when I put on the Aveeno moisturizer, my skin feels hydrated all day, until I wash my face again.  Continue reading “Daily Recommendation: Aveeno Clear Complexion Daily Moisturizer”

April 21: C25k App

C25K is a running app that gets you from the couch (potato) to running 5K in 8 weeks. I started using the app 9 months ago to get myself to run 5K with ease. You only need to run 3 times a week, begins with 30 minute sessions the first couple of weeks and eventually progresses to 40 minutes, includes a 5 minute warm up and cool down. The promise is to get you to run 5K without the huffing and puffing. I used it routinely and not only did I feel great but saw results in both my physique and my ability to keep running.  Continue reading “Daily Recommendation: C25K App”

Daily Recommendation: Visit a Chiropractor

April 14: Visit a Chiropractor

I have always brushed off the idea of seeing a chiropractor. To me, they were “foo-faa” doctors; I am ashamed to have had such a narrow minded outlook on the subject. However, recently, due to a recommendation from my trainer, I went to see a Chiropractor and if I hadn’t physically been there myself, I wouldn’t believe what I witnessed. He did a “test” on me, not sure what it was called, but it was an assessment of sorts. After which, he did some adjustments and re-did the assessment test. To my amazement and (serious surprise), the problems my body had during the initial assessment did not exist during the follow up test! It was like magic, no, really! I was so impressed that I went back two more times since then and have noticed the aches and pains in my body decline at a very steady pace.
