Tips for you!

Although my first passion is running, I enjoy sports, fitness, and nutrition. I have created a blog to give everyone tips on all I know and will know. I will also be taking classes posting about trails/hikes ect., foods that are good for you or taste good that are low in calories, and what to eat and what not to eat.

Tip: Skin Care

I have found a solution for those of you who spend time outdoors, although you are having fun, you notice that your face pays for it. The one thing I have hated about running, hiking, yard work, or pretty much any activity I do outdoors is that I will sweat and my face breaks out and it feels uncomfortably dry. I went and talked to a few Esthetician's and asked them for a solution - They all had the same answer for me: Now Keep in mind I have been doing this tip I got for about 3 weeks and have noticed a huge difference in my face. So this REALLY WORKS:

So before any outdoor activity do these 3 simple steps:

Step One: Wash Your Face
Step Two: Put a fine layer of Moisturizing lotion (preferably with SPF)
Step Three: Apply a thin layer of powder to your face

This will create a barrier from sweat and dirt so that your pours don't suffer.

I love this tip and I notice my face doesn't hurt or feel dry during any activity that I do. So try it and tell me what you think?

Before and After!

This is a before and after picture of my husband Lucas. He looks amazing after only a little over 2.5 months. Lucas had been wanting to loose weight for a long time now. So I took it upon myself to enter him in a weight loss competition. I started to train him, weight lifting, running , hiking, walking runs, speed training etc.. Also about a month and a half ago he started the bronze level of Aaron Ogden's nutrition program. This eating program has forever changed the way we will eat, for the rest of our life.
