I work out :)

I stumbled across a neat app the other day in the App store.  From previous posts you now I love the My Fitness Pal App.  Well I have found another excellent one.  I am the mother of 2 kids under the age of 6.  I have little time between practices, dinner making, my full time job, and household every day tasks to exercise.  I have been searching pinterest for some quick tabatta like workouts.  I want the most bang for my time.  I found this app. Sworkit and it's FREE :)
From the website: http://sworkit.com/
Sworkit provides randomized circuit training workouts to keep you motivated to exercise and stay fit anywhere. Sworkit builds randomized circuit training workouts that you can do anywhere. You just choose which part of your body you want to work on and how long you have to work out, and Sworkit takes care of the rest. By providing an actual workout and taking you through the motions, you don't have to do any other planning or have any extra equipment.  Circuit training has been proven to provide highly efficient workouts at a fast pace. Sworkit allows you to choose the total amount of time you want to work out and provides you with the proper exercise timing, rest, and transitions.

I love it because I can choose the length of time and what area you want to work.  It has a timer so you don't have to worry which lets you know when to change exercise and when to take a break.  If an exercise pops up you don't know how to do it has a video you can tap to watch so you get the correct form.  So far I have been doing it at least 4 times per week for 15 - 20 minutes.  Much more than I was doing :)

Check it out and see if you like it.  Please feel free to share any apps you love for exercise.

Yankee Candle Coupon

Sharing the love once again for a yankee deal: Buy 2 get 1 free.  Love this deal and it's a great way to stock up.  This time of year is hard for me because I am really tired of the Christmas Tree smell, but what do you go to??  Too early for those spring scents.  With this deal I am going to play around with some scents and see what I like.  Happy shopping.

Drugstore skin care

My dear sweet husband has asked me to join him in saving a buck. We would like to move to a house with a basement soon and need to save up. As my high end products run out I am trying to find drugstore versions. I spend a lot of time researching them before I purchase so I get the best stuff. My moisturizers have run out so I recently purchased some refill products.  Please note that I have very very dry skin.

AM moisturizer Garnier Nutrisse Ultra Lift wrinkle reducer serum
I love the texture and feel of this cream.  It is not greasy feeling and soaks in pretty quickly. At 16.99 it's about half of my other cream and a larger size. I am on week 3 od this product and still loving it.

PM Moisturizer  Ponds Dry Skin Cream
I slather my face with this each night. This has actually made my skin so much plumper and at 8.99 it's a fantastic deal

Face Primer Cover Girl  Olay Simply Ageless Serum
I love Laura Mercier Hydrating Face Primer but at 30 dollars it's just too much. This one is just 15 and really does the trick!  It actually makes my face feel more moisturized.

I will keep you posted on my drugstore adventures.
