101 in 1001: 30 day update

The first 30 days of my 1001 day plan have come and gone. I completed a number of tasks, got started on some, and realized I need to work harder on others. 

Swiss Chalet SauceI'm maintaining the Trim Healthy Mama (THM) food plan on a daily basis for the most part. I did "cheat" a couple of times this month - most enjoyably with a soup bowl of Swiss Chalet sauce to go with my fries, and with a slice of Bailey's Irish Cream cheesecake. The best part of the plan though is that I can start over every 3 hours. I'm able to maintain my weight, and continue to lose weight and inches.

This past Spring I bought a lot of plants for my front yard. I decided to put in lavender, rosemary, mint, and oregano so that I would have something scented, and edible! This month I cut them, dried them in the oven, and put them in jars. This was something new for me so I was rather pleased with myself.

I'll share more about some of my other goals in the coming weeks.

What about you? What have you done in the last 30 days to work towards your goals?

Weekly items for 101 in 1001: Skin Care routine

Skin care routine weekly
I didn't understand the importance of a skin care routine growing up. My sister sold Arbonne and now sells Avon and has better educated me on this topic! I use the following products on a hit and miss basis, I figure I won't make time for it daily but I can at least aim for weekly. 

Products I love:
Avon skin so soft fresh smooth silky stay shave gel - I like that this blue gel stays on my skin until I shave it off, it doesn't drip off like foam does.

Avon Anew Reversalist creams - night, day, eye, and eye veil. The eye veil is my favourite as it provides a gentle veil under the eye that reduces dark shadows.

Ekos creamy hand balm, Cacau - This pulp hand cream provides 36-hour moisturisation for your skin, leaving it delicately perfumed.

Ekos leg and foot cream, Cacau - Enriched with cocoa butter, this leg and foot care cream provides 30-hour moisturisation for dry areas, imparting a delicate perfume.

Ekos body butter scrub, Cacau - This exfoliating butter enriched with cocoa butter, sugar and plant oils removes dead skin cells. Your skin is left delicately perfumed.

What are your favourite skin care products?
