Starting a NEW ME- Weightloss & Skin care

Sunday, August 05, 2012

My size 18 clothes are finally too big for me. I lost 41 lbs so far & have 26 lbs more to go to be out of the obesity range. Finally taking care of my skin. Selling Avon is my incentive. Need to show everyone how well their skincare works.
Beating the heat with ice water, ice tea & not moving as much. No exercise is not good for me so I do some exercises only early in the morning. Using Avon lip conditioner to prevent chapped lips from my blowing fans.
I have my feet nice & smooth again by giving myself pedicures with Avon Foot Works products. A nice relaxing thing to do when it's so hot.

The summer is warm for all I know, so I did find this tip on eHow.com:

Make a DIY air conditioner. Put a metal bowl of ice in front of a fan, and adjust the fan so that the air is blowing over the ice. Or, use one or more 2 liter bottles and fill them mostly full of water, freeze them, then place them in a large bowl (to catch dripping water). Position a
fan to blow on them. As the ice in the bottles melts, the air cools around them. The fan will blow that air at you. The water in the bottles can be frozen overnight and used again repeatedly.You can also turn on your stove fan (on the ventilator hood) or open up your chimney flue.
These will also draw hot air out of the house and pull cooler evening air into the house.
