quick dry towel

So I am currently working on my News Years Resolution – lose weight – shocking right? Haha – I think that is everyone’s New Years Resolution :-)

Anyway, this time i’ve actually stuck with it for about a month now (started a little before the New Year) and I’ve lost 12 pounds! One thing that I’ve done is I go to the gym 6 days a week. I normally go before work, so I have to shower at the gym.

I use to take my regular bath towel, until I saw someone else at the gym with this really neat quick dry towel so I asked her about it. She said she got it on Amazon, told me the name – Bodi Hut Microfiber Quick Dry Towel, I found it and ordered it and I LOVE it.

Check out my video below.  Click Here to get it on Amazon AND here is a $3 off coupon code – PROMO3TL

How to Achieve Natural Beauty

Check out these healthy beauty tips to achieve fresh and natural look.

You can do better than loading on layers of makeup and hair products. Respect your natural beauty to achieve a fresh and healthy appeal using several easy methods.

Step 1: Drink water

How to Achieve Natural Beauty

Drink plenty of water to keep your skin hydrated and youthful.

Step 2: Rinse hair

How to Achieve Natural Beauty

Rinse your hair in lemon juice and water to lighten and beautify your hair, clarifying it with a mixture of water and apple cider vinegar. Repair hair ends by massaging mayonnaise into them and covering your hair with a shower cap for 15 minutes to an hour before rinsing.

The vinegar smell will dissipate quickly.

Step 3: Moisturize your scalp

How to Achieve Natural Beauty

Thicken your hair by putting a couple drops of rosemary essential oil on your hairbrush before brushing.

Step 4: Get air and light

How to Achieve Natural Beauty

Get outdoors at least 20 minutes each day, for the fresh look it gives the skin and for the healthy dose of vitamin D you get from sunlight.

Step 5: Baby your skin

How to Achieve Natural Beauty

Moisturize before bed to keep the natural beauty of your skin. Wear pajamas and socks to bed to lock in the moisture while you sleep. Before bed, dab white toothpaste on any pimples to shrink them.

Don’t take too long or too hot a bath, both of which can dry your skin.

Step 6: Liven your eyes

How to Achieve Natural Beauty

Rely on eye makeup shades that match or complement your skin tone. Liven your eyes with a shimmery highlight along the inner corners and rims of the lower lids to add some sparkle.

Step 7: Make up with cream

How to Achieve Natural Beauty

Use a light-colored cream, gel, or mousse blush for sheer coverage. The shade should approximate a flush truer to skin tone. Select a cream formula lipstick in your natural lip hue as well to achieve a natural beauty.

Step 8: Care for feet

How to Achieve Natural Beauty

Add vinegar to hot water in a small tub and soak your feet for 30 minutes every day. Remove corns with a pumice stone or emery board while your feet are soaking.

Step 9: Eat for good skin

How to Achieve Natural Beauty

Eat foods with essential fatty acids, which are important for beautiful skin. A deficiency of EFA can result in acne, seborrhea, redness, eczema, frequent infections, and slow wound healing.

Eliminate any unnecessary medications to stem the accumulation of toxins that can undermine your natural radiance.

Step 10: Soak yourself

How to Achieve Natural Beauty

Use the last hours of the evening to wind down. Avoid sugar, caffeine, and alcohol to get a good night’s sleep and prevent baggy eyes.

Did You Know?
The YWCA reported in 2008 that U.S. women spent $7 billion a year on beauty products, an average of nearly $100 a month per woman.

1 Food

Top 5 Heart Health Tips

Try and keep a healthy diet that’s low in fat, low in sodium or salt, and high in fiber. So things like lots of fruits and vegetables to get your fiber, fresh foods to avoid the salt, try to stay away from fried foods and processed foods as much as possible.

Thirty minutes of moderate activity, meaning your heart rate is elevated is recommended everyday.

Top 10 Fitness Trackers by EzVid

10 HuntGold Sync Healthy Smart Bracelet

Top 10 Fitness Trackers 2015 | Best Activity Tracker Review

The HuntGold fitness tracker is great if you on are a serious budget, but it’s not great if you are a serious activity conscious individual. It definitely gets the job done, if you can decipher the foreign manual, and tracks your steps, distance, and calories burned nicely on its display. It comes with an app on Google Play that takes some time to comb through just to find it, but it did work fairly well with our iPhone. Our least favorite aspect is that it must be charged daily, as battery life is subpar.

9 Vktech Vidonn X5 Smart Wristband

Top 10 Fitness Trackers 2015 | Best Activity Tracker Review

We say the Vkteck band is the perfect starter fitness tracker. It’s low costing, accurately tracks steps and distance, and it’s compatible on several Apple interfaces and Samsung Galaxy S4. We love that it recharges quickly via a built-in USB connector, saving you the hassle of a power cord, and it holds charge for days. The Vktech also tracks sleeping schedules that is easily readable through its app. It’s a great beginner piece if you’re not ready to make a more costly investment.

8 Samsung Gear Fit Fitness Tracker

Top 10 Fitness Trackers 2015 | Best Activity Tracker Review

Our favorite aspects about the Samsung Gear Fit bracelet is that it’s comfortable for all day wear, and the screen is extremely easy to see under all lighting conditions. You can also customize the screen to add personal flare, and the band is interchangeable. It easily tracks fitness progress and it’s a huge plus you can check email and texts through this one device. It’s a great mutli-use tracker, but the only downside is it’s only compatible with Samsung devices.

7 iChoice Star Activity Tracker

Top 10 Fitness Trackers 2015 | Best Activity Tracker Review

iChoice is hands down the best $50 fitness tracker available now. We love that we can wear it as a wristband, or clip it on a pocket for easy portability, and syncing the device with our iPhone is a breeze and it works flawlessly. It tracks all the important information and keeps charge for days and only needs 1-2 hours to recharge. It works fast, efficiently and is a convenient tool for anyone wanting to track their activity. The only catch is you have to manually switch on and off Sleep Mode, but it’s so awesome you won’t mind.

6 Runtastic Orbit

Top 10 Fitness Trackers 2015 | Best Activity Tracker Review

If a bulky activity tracker doesn’t appeal to you, skip this Runtastic, but you might be sorry you did. The Runtastic is very versatile and we love that it is not only waterproof, but can reach depths up to 300 feet. Like we said, it’s a little big for a wristband but it also converts to a clip to affix discreetly. It also features an alarm, Bluetooth that actually works, and an intuitive app to track all your progress. And it doesn’t hurt that it’s backed by a 1-year warranty.

5 Misfit Shine Monitor

Top 10 Fitness Trackers 2015 | Best Activity Tracker Review

The MisFit Shine design is subtle and looks just like an average watch making it very comfortable to wear every day. We love how minimalistic is it, and converting it to a clip couldn’t be easier. It not only tracks steps and distance but can also keep tabs on sport activity, and activity progress is indicated on the interface by a halo of lights. We wish it wasn’t battery operated, but a single battery will last you up to 6 months. For swimmers, it is also waterproof up to 50 meters.

4 Fitbit Flex Wireless

Top 10 Fitness Trackers 2015 | Best Activity Tracker Review

The Fitbit Flex is an amazing wireless fitness tracker that lets you set personal goals and watch your daily progress via LED lights on the wristband. It wears comfortable, is very slim and stays on well. It also has a silent alarm, a food and weight log, and it can monitor your sleep patterns that is illustrated well on the Flex free online dashboard. Our favorite part is that it syncs wirelessly with our computer and iPhone for instant access to all of our activity.

3 Jawbone UP 24

Top 10 Fitness Trackers 2015 | Best Activity Tracker Review

We like that the Jawbone UP tracks our day to day activity patterns and evens gives great tips on how we can be healthier. We found the step tracker to be really accurate as opposed to some trackers that simply follow arm movement, because that makes sense! And we really like that it not only gives us in-depth information on our sleeping patterns, but it gives us suggestions how on we can sleep better. It’s like having your own personal health coach and we highly recommend it.

2 Waterproof Fuelband SE

Top 10 Fitness Trackers 2015 | Best Activity Tracker Review

Geared towards the avid swimmers, the Waterfi Fuelband is waterproof down to 210 feet and does not corrode in salt water. We find its strongest features to be is Bluetooth 4.0 that syncs wirelessly for live updates on activity progress, and the wristband design is comfortable and durable for everyday wear. The one downside is that it’s only compatible with iPhone 4S, 5 and 5c – sorry Andriod users.

1 Fitbit One

Top 10 Fitness Trackers 2015 | Best Activity Tracker Review

Meet the Fitbit One fitness tracker. It’s the size of a flash drive and instead of a wristband, you can clip it virtually anywhere. You will want to use it all the time and you’ll find yourself taking the stairs instead of the elevator like we did. It monitors and tracks activity well and syncs automatically for real-time access at your fingers. We found ourselves not only competing with our personal goals, but we also started competing against our other Fitbit friends. If you’re looking for a tracker to keep you motivated, this is it.
