Working Out After Work

You have 2 options:

Pack your gym bag the night before, so you'll be less likely to bail.

Set your clothes out at home before you leave the house. When you get home, do something to get the ball rolling towards that workout.

For Example, I'll set my Garmin at the window so I'll be more motivated to go run.

Distance Running Mantra

I picked this up after reading "Secrets of a Former Fat Girl":
Her mantra was, "It's not an option" (aka INO). She applied this as being "It's not an option to stop running."

I came up with my own, and while a little harsh....it kept me going. It was especially handy when training for my first half marathon.

"Fat girls don't run" - Yes harsh...but as long as I kept running and didn't stop to walk...I was fit!

Get Rid of Zits Fast!

This is for those lousy zits you get at the day or two before some important event.

Use triple antibiotic ointment (Neosprin) on them. Store brands work just as well.

Day: Use just enough to cover the zit or blemish and then used concealer over it. If I can avoid makeup all together I will.

Night: Put a good sized dab on the zit or blemish and cover with a small bandaid (yes...a bandaid). This is when it does the most good and the longer you can keep it on the better.
