I am so tired of being tired... Getting my thrive on

I am so tired of being tired. I used to be a bundle of energy. I could sleep four hours and be ready to conquer the world. In the past year it has slowly been dwindling to non existent. Six months ago I had a complete blood work up done.  I discovered I have a pretty big vitamin D deficiency (how does that happen when you live in the sun?) and I already knew I was a severe anemic. Between the two of these I stay drained. I feel like I need a nap a half an hour after I get up and I have never been a napper!

I forced myself to get back to the gym but it kills what little energy I have. I started seeing posts on my cousins site telling every one about the amazing amount of energy they had and how this product was changing their life. I read the posts and kept up with it. Straight up? I am a skeptic. I am in the dermatology/cosmetic/beauty industry and I am 100% a seeing is believing kinda girl. So I spoke to them about it... a lot!! I am sure I drove him crazy with all my questions and procrastination. I showed the pdf's on the products to three personal trainers, a nutritionist, and a nurse practitioner.

Four months later... (ok maybe closer to six) after a week of being overly tired I decided to make take the plunge! So just to be clear this isn't about wanting to be skinny, or jumping on a wagon train. This is about having the energy to make it through my day with out being drained, cranky and miserable, about being able to get my body back in shape, about being able to enjoy life.

I start this journey on Saturday August 19th and will be sure to document any changes or improvements here on the blog! I hope some one some where gets inspiration from this in some way.

UPDATE: My products have been delivered and I am so excited to start this tomorrow!

Picosure Laser Tattoo Removal Review!!!

I have been stuck with a tattoo that I hate for a very long time now. I had looked into removal before but the cost was way too much. I had looked into covering it up but never fell in love with anything that would cover this hideous thing up.

I finally found out about Picosure!! This laser is amazing!

Why I love it:

NO Scarring, Fewer treatments than previous lasers by as much a 50%, less cost, and less discomfort!
But does it work?? I have had one treatment and these are my results: WARNING THE SECOND TWO PICS ARE KIND OF GROSS!!!!

Pic one: my very gross tattoo before the treatment. Yea what was I thinking??? Pic two: directly after the treatment. Lots of frost and you can see the blisters forming. this is actually a good thing haha

Pic 3: a gross mess. But it wasn't hurting. It actually looks worse because of the goop you have to keep on it.  Pic 4..Almost all the way healed and wow at the amount of color that is gone from it. Granted it isn't a clear pic because I had to take it m…

Things I am loving....Bem (pronounced Beam)

I am not easily impressed when it comes to speakers for my phone. I have had a few and not any of them have delivered what I was looking for. 
This Christmas I received the Bem (pronounced Beam) Bluetooth mobile speaker at our company party. I took it home and put it to the side for a few days. Never really giving it much thought. A few days later while putting some stuff away I ran across it again and decided to charge it up and give it a try.
Let me just say I was blown away! The sound that comes out of that little black cube is sensational! I was very impressed. While obviously it won't be mistaken for your surround sound it also will never be confused for one of those sketchy little portable speakers either!
I use my Bem when I am cleaning house because I can just pick up the little box and move it from room to room, but I can't wait for this summer when I can use it at the beach! No more leaving my car doors open at the beach I can park on or carrying a radio when I have t…

How to keep your eye safe from Makeup

Your eyes are precious!! Here are some tips for avoiding infection and abrasions from your makeup!

1. Keep it to yourself! Your mom always said you should share but in this case it is an absolute no no!! Sharing eye makeup means sharing bacteria and disease. No matter who it is!!

2. Keep it outside the line! Keeping your liner to the outside of the lash line prevents abrasions to the lids and eye. Applying to the waterline increases the chance that particles will migrate into the tear film over the cornea . This increases your chance of infection and irritation.

3. Keep sharp!
Keep your liner sharp so that the line is more precise. This will help lessen the chance to scratches to your eyes. Also make sure there are no wooden splinters left behind when you sharpen and that it sharpened evenly on all sides.

4. Keep it Fresh! Replacing all eye makeup every 3-4 months avoids bacterial infection. Also avoid products that have expired. A good rule of thumb with mascara is whe…
