Hey there. I am sitting in my darkened apartment with the fan and A/C on…it’s hot.
I got up earlier than yesterday and went for a run. Yesterday I went at 9am, but today I got out at 8am. It was STILL hot.
I did 2 min running/1 minute walking for 36 minutes/5km. I swear to the Holy Running God, that I whenever it was time to run…it was a damn hill.
Half-way through I did the following:
- 15 bench step-ups on each leg
- 10 bench push-ups
- 20 calf-raises on each side
Times two. Then I hauled my sweaty arse home. There is NOTHING better than a shower after running. There is nothing.
I must share with you two things which I have fallen in love with since buying them in America while I was home!
I LOVE this product. I have a very annoying scalp that loves to build up, get dry and cracky and cause intense spells of itching. It can get incredibly painful. I have tried EVERYTHING. The only thing that would help was Head and Shoulders. But I don’t like the idea of supporting animal testing (J&J does) and put chemicals on my head.
Then I saw Yes to Carrots and thought: Why not? I like carrots! After using it, I fell in love not only with their product but also their mission.
Each of our Yes To families were born of a true desire to make you feel and look as radiant as humanly possible. We strive to give you back your natural glow and a pure feeling of joy! We’re committed to doing all this by creating paraben free formulas which contain all the yummy goodness of organic fruits and vegetables , and Dead Sea Minerals .
They have a great mission to, which goes to plant organic food for under served areas:
The Yes To Carrots™ Seed Fund, a U.S. 501(c)3 non-profit organization, is on a mission to make a difference in people’s lives by providing under-served communities with the resources to develop and sustain an organic food source and access to healthy nutrition.
I just love their stuff. I loved it before I knew about their company and I love it even more. The best part is that I can get it in Australia and you can get it pretty much anywhere in the world 🙂
2. Burts Bees: Soap Bark and Chamomile Deep Cleansing Mask
It has this refreshing tingle about it that I just love. It’s soft on my skin and I use it every time I take a shower. I love that:
Burt’s Bees is an “Earth Friendly, Natural Personal Care Company.” We create natural, Earth-friendly personal care products formulated to help you maximize your well-being and that of the world around you.
These products are available everywhere and they are affordable. I love good skin/hair products, but what I love more is that these puppies are in an major supermarket and are something which are affordable.
I went throughout my day pretty much sweating the whole time. I got some very important health/police clearances sent off for my nursing program which I will be starting in about three week–YIKES! I can’t believe that it’s finally happening. I then was reading MamaPeas blog post and realised that it was MLK Jr. Day in American on Monday. I had totally forgotten…living abroad that will happen sometimes.
I watched the ‘I Have a Dream Speech’ and was moved. Not being alive during the time that it happened, I am grateful that I have learned about it throughout school. However, we NEVER watched it. I suggest that you watch it..or at least open the video and have it playing while your poddering around the house. The words of this man, his eloquence, the power of this time…should not be forgotten.
I couldn’t help but think of Obama after watching this speech.
