Examining my Coconut Oil Experiment

Last month, I mentioned turning to coconut oil as a means to beautify myself.  I was definitely not surprised about how great coconut oil is a beauty product -- my hair looked fab after a 30-minute hair mask session!  But the amount I could save if I replaced many of my beauty products with coconut oil was the real pleasant surprise.

Six weeks until June

Summer is just around the corner, so naturally I am panicked.  How did time fly so fast?

Java and sweets are my krytonite

Okay, so I have a confession: I am packing on the pounds again.  Why?  I eat too many sweets and drink espresso drinks like they are going out of style.

30-Day Squat Challenge for April

So I thought it would be fun to being back monthly challenges (though last year I barely followed through) and see what areas of my fitness needed improvement.  And I have to be honest: my butt sucks right now!



But lucky for me, I enjoy doing squats.  This particular challenge eases you in with the rep count, progressively adding reps each day until you can reach 250 (see schedule below).  I don't expect an 11-hour miracle, but it would be a nice head start to get my booty ready for the summer.


In the meantime, let's enjoy this lovely spring weather (although it is going to snow later this week where I live).  Happy April!  Cheers!
