Acne cure Tea Tree Oil

I tried every thing over the counter or Rx and nothing worked then I tried Tea Tree Oil from the health food store just wash my face then apply a few drops of oil to my face once a day and I have clearer skin then I have ever have. I know putting oil on sounds counter intuitive but it really worked!

22 Flights

I finally after two weeks have made it to the top! I climbed 22 flights of stairs and it feels great! I asked the security guard to let me out on the roof and he did. I felt like I was in a Rocky movie.

Forget about the words "tomorrow" and "later" ...

If you're going to get started, get started!! If you have the words "tomorrow" and "later" in your vocabulary, your brain is very likely to think "I'll start tomorrow."

And as is well known, "tomorrow never comes."

Trick

When ever I feel like I need to snack on something I try chewing a stick of gum instead. It wards off the hunger and I feel satisfied.

Keep control of your calories when you're out

Make a pick & mix menu of standby snacks and always choose something to have in your bag when you're out. Research online menus for restaurants and coffee shops for nutritional information. Read labels on take away salads or sandwiches. Build a list of safe choices so that you can stay in control.

Late night snacking used to be my biggest problem, but soon after I started eating bigger breakfasts, I noticed that I wasn't snacking at night anymore.

lists

I can forget things when busy only to remember them just before falling asleep - this interferes with sleep. So, I keep a small pad of paper and a pen on the nightstand and write things down. Then I can forget them again and fall asleep easier. : )

Bike and Hike

Spring has sprung in Iowa. This is my favorite time of year. This means I can get out my new pink and white bike. I love to cycle. With RA, i feel less stress and impact on my joints, and I can get in several miles in just one ride. I have also started walking to most of my errands in town.
