Well, another busy week at work and I went to the Duran Duran/CHIC concert with my friend. It was great to see her and the concert was awesome! If you have a chance to see them on their summer tour, do it! You will not be disappointed. Ok, it’s time for the beautyfithealth.com update.
In the last post I said I would be doing the Fitnessblender.com Booty and Abs workout plans. I did well until this week. My friend and I did walk a lot and danced for two hours at the concert, so it wasn’t a total loss this week.
What I have to concentrate on is not working until the work gets done. To take a break and workout for at least 30 minutes and then get back to work. Sometimes I work through lunch and then by the time I’m finished it’s time to start cooking dinner and finishing laundry. The last thing I want to do is work out.
My diet has been good. I try to vary my meals each day so I won’t get bored. Using the 80/20 rule seems to work well for me.
I have been able to button a pair of pants that were too small for me. Yay, for me! What I’m doing is working, but I have to be more consistent.
I will continue with the Fitnessblender.com workouts and try to keep my diet as clean as possible. I still have a class reunion in less that 4 weeks. I think what I’m doing is making a difference. I’m still drinking the apple cider vinegar in the morning and drinking a ton of water every day.
ICYMI: I did a couple of reviews of some great products recently.
I have been extremely busy with work. I’m so sorry that I haven’t updated my progress. But, I’m also happy to be working as a Social Media Manager/Marketer. This has been my dream for the past couple of years. I thought it was finally time to give you an update for beautyfithealth.com.
I have been struggling with eating right and getting in workouts. Sometimes I’m so busy, I forget to eat lunch. I am going to make an effort to start the FitnessBlender.com workout plans again. I’m running out of time. The Duran Duran show is in a couple of weeks and my high school reunion is in August.
The plan is: (triumphant horns) I will workout with the FitnessBlender.com Booty and Abs programs. I like that I can just plug the workouts into the FitnessBlender.com calendar and know exactly what I’m doing for the day. For the past month I have been drinking a teaspoon of apple cider vinegar in water with cayenne pepper every morning to help increase my metabolism. Apple cider vinegar also helps to get rid of acne. You can read more about that here.
I have also been eating more avocado, because it helps to get rid of belly fat. I will make sure to have a protein shake after my workout and try to eat as clean as possible. I have given up artificial sweeteners and my beloved Coke Zero already.
So, what do you think?! I hope to update you all every week on beautyfithealth.com.
Summer is almost here and that means spending more time socializing with others. I want my skin to look it’s absolute best. Sometimes your skin needs a good detox. Especially after a very harsh winter. That’s why I was excited to try Newport Skinny Tea’s Malibu Beach Beauty Tea.
I was given a sample of the tea from Newport Skinny Tea to try for a couple of weeks. Malibu Beach Beauty Tea helps to stimulate the skin and detox your system. It can balance hormones that cause break outs and stimulate the production of collagen with an herb called gotu kola.
I drink two cups of Malibu Beach Beauty Tea a day. I have notice that my skin is smoother and clearer. The tea has a pleasant taste and I don’t add any sweetener to it. I would drink a cup in the morning and one before bed.
Instructions: Steep 1 Tbsp of tea per 1 cup of boiling water for 3 minutes, adjust strength as needed.
I can recommend Malibu Beach Beauty Tea and will continue to drink it. It helps to keep my skin smooth and clear. Also, because I’m going through peri-menopause, it helps to regulate my hormones. I have noticed that my peri-menopause symptoms have disappeared.

Keeping your skin radiant and dewy can sometimes be difficult when wearing makeup daily. We have had some hot days here in Toronto. Sometimes with makeup my face feels heavy and uncomfortable. Thank goodness for Farmacy Skin Dew Hydrating Essence Mist.
Farmacy Skin Dew is a hydrating mist and setting spray. It’s formulated to help moisturize, replenish and set makeup. It contains essential oils, Rosemary, Bergamot and Peppermint, and has a lovely, fresh scent. It also contains Kiwi Fruit Extract, rich in Vitamin C, Potassium, and Magnesium to protect the skin from harmful pollution and helps to improve the skin’s barrier.
Farmacy Skin Dew Hydrating Essence Mist contains Echinacea GreenEnvy™ discovered by Mark Veeder. A unique patent-protected variant of Echinacea Purpurea, GreenEnvy™ contains the highest known concentration of the phytochemical Cichoric Acid, a potent natural antioxidant which helps protect and firm the skin by inhibiting the enzymes that break down collagen.
How to Use:
Hold the nozzle about eight inches from the skin and gently spray across the face.
Start at the forehead and work down to the chin.
Brighten up your morning by applying either before or after moisturizing.
Retain that refreshing feeling by reapplying throughout the day to rejuvenate your makeup and seal in freshness.
Farmacy Skin Dew Hydrating Essence Mist is so refreshing on a hot day and also after a long day of wearing makeup. It not only gives my skin a glow, but also a radiance. I highly recommend Skin Dew if you want soft, dewy, radiant skin.

Hello, I wanted to just give you a quick update. I’ve been so busy with my online classes, blogs and being a stay-at-home mom, I’ve been neglecting to update. Sorry.
I am so happy the groundhog didn’t see his shadow. Although this hasn’t been a bad winter (knocks on wood), I’m ready for spring and spending more time outdoors.
I have started working out again. I’ve been doing the Fitnessblender.com FB Booty workout plan. I do that workout before lunch and I do the BodyRock Intermediate Bootcamp Workoutafter dinner. I’m so sedentary lately, that working out twice a day makes me feel better. It usually adds up to about 45 minutes of working out a day.
Also, I received some skin care products from xtendlife. I will be reviewing the products in a few weeks, but until then check out their website. One of the products I’m most excited to try is the Zupafood for SKIN! It’s a powder that you mix in water. It contains collagen, grape seed extract, vitamin C and other great ingredients. The Zupafood for SKIN helps to improve firmness and elasticity to the skin. They have lots of great products for skin care, weight management, fitness and health. Most of their products contain natural and raw ingredients.
I cannot believe it’s already February! I would like to hear from you. How was your January?! Did you stick to your goals? What are you looking forward to this year?! Let’s start a conversation in the comments area below!
