Skin/Health Update!

I guess it has been a few months since I got this new cleanser system going on, and I think my skin is doing much better! My mother says it is and since she is like the harshest critic, I’ll take her word for it. There seem to be just a couple spots on my face that needs to finish flushing out…whatever the face is flushing out. That sounds so nasty! My face isn’t like acne central or anything 😛 I just had a stupid pimple on my chin. Real small and gone soon enough but I knew it was there! Although, I only seem to get any sort of pimples around that time of the month (I feel a little awkward mentioning that around Niklas even if he is a girl) so, uh, I don’t know what else I was going to say about that.

I finished the 30 Day Challenge on EA Active and am now starting another 30 Day Challenge. The rather cheap resistance band that came with it started to snap so I got a resistance tube but it’s a little awkward with the Wii Remote and stuff, so I think I’ll just have to buy a new resistance band.

My eating habits haven’t been real bad lately but they haven’t been real good either. I am still not drinking enough water. I think I might need to start keeping track of my water intake, start treating it as medicine or something to force myself to drink it. This Friday I plan to go shopping for food. I’ve set aside $50 for it with the plan to actually buy some damn fruit. And maybe some cottage cheese, although I only like that in small doses. I probably just had a craving today which is why I thought of it. I am torn on whether or not I should get some Slim Fast. The thing is, I really do not like eating breakfast these days. I figure a liquid meal might be easier to handle, and well, the chocolate shakes taste pretty damn good. But I hate buying diet food because then I always feel like people are like “mmmhmm, someone is trying to lose weight”. Which ok is sometimes true but they don’t need to know that!

EA Active Day Three

I bought EA Sports Active this past Sunday and began using it that night. At first I was going to start out on the medium intensity, but then thought maybe I should try the easy first; you know, for a warm up kind of thing.


The easy workout makes you sweat! The next day I decided I should buy some workout clothes.

The difference, to me, between Wii Fit and EA Active is how with Active you go from one activity to the other, whereas with Fit you pick and choose what you want to do which detracts from the overall effect of the workout. It also allows the user to go easy on themselves. Lord knows left to my devices I would not have chosen to do three running drills in one session.

Tomorrow will be my day of rest (today should have been, but I didn’t feel like it) and I think I’ll pop in Wii Fit and do some yoga. See, Fit does have some benefits over Active, namely the yoga, balance games, and weight/BMI measuring.

The next part of my plan is to buy some fruit and force myself to eat it everyday. I like fruit, and I like water, I just can’t seem to eat it as much as I should.
