Dull Skin Pick Me Up

Jude, of Jude's Herbal Home Remedies fame says that a pineapple juice mask on the skin for 30 minutes will give dull, winter, and shall we say mature skin a bit of color and umph.  I don't know about you but I could use both.  So as I look out on this not-so-spring-like weather, I decided to give Jude's mask a go.

It felt tingly and had that tightening effect, which lures me into thinking that the mask is working miracles.  Positive thinking also goes a long way.  I washed it off and voila, Jude delivers.  Umph and a wee bit of pallor is banished.  The pineapple mask gets a  two thumbs up and you can do in the morning as you go about getting ready for the day.

Egg Me On

The Oh-So Elusive Perfect Hard-Boiled Egg-
Not just an Easter hot topic, but also widely discussed among the fitness crowd.

Cover eggs with cold water. Don't crowd—you may need to cook in two batches depending on the size of pot. Gently bring to a low boil. As soon as you see a few bubbles turn off the heat and cover the pot firmly. Let sit undisturbed for about 10 minutes. This method is forgiving, an extra minute or two won't ruin your holiday eggs. Rinse the eggs with cold water or place in an ice bath to stop cooking.

Raising the Titanic

No, this is not my new booty workout program, that's later.  I am resurrecting this blog because I need some accountability, motivation, and to hang out online with some like-minded folk.  That said, I am staring down the barrel of my 49th birthday come this May (Taurus, baby).  While I can say I am in pretty decent shape, I want to step it up and be fabulous.  Fit, fun, fab and almost 50.  So it's on.  I am going to get my blogging mojo going and I want to inspire, be inspired and have some humor about this 50 business.  Who's in?
