It's time once again to visit the amazing Amber @ ae filkins and link up for the Extreme Makeover Me Edition. The women who have joined Amber are a wonderful group of women who truly inspire and support everyone. I do mean everyone!
This week's question is: What's your favorite beauty secret? Mine is most definitely toothpaste on a blemish. You put a dab of toothpaste on a blemish at night and wash of in the morning. It makes them almost vanish and takes away the pain.
On Monday and Tuesday I woke up at 6:00 am to run on the treadmill. Although my body doesn't quite work that early in the morning it felt so good. This morning did not go as planned but I hope to make up for it with a long walk with the kids.
Finally, I was sent this in an email.
For those of you who watch what you eat, here's the final word on nutrition and health. It's a relief to know the truth after all those conflicting nutritional studies. 1. The Japanese eat very little fat and suffer fewer heart attacks than Americans.2. The Mexicans eat a lot of fat and suffer fewer heart attacks than Americans. 3. The Chinese drink very little red wine and suffer fewer heart attacks than Americans. 4. The Italians drink a lot of red wine and suffer fewer heart attacks than Americans. 5. The Germans drink a lot of beers and eat lots of sausages and fats and suffer fewer heart attacks than Americans.
CONCLUSION Eat and drink what you like.Speaking English is apparently what kills you.

LOL! I'm going to learn Italian immediately so I can drink all of the red wine I want. You know...I was on that diet once and did great on it. Salad, Cheese and Red Wine.

Have a great week!

Awesome job on getting up at 6! I'm the WORST morning person! I'm not cranky once I'm awake, but just getting up is the nightmare for me!

Good luck this week!
