Being Burned Out, High Blood Pressure and A Pause Vacation Needed!!!

9 Oct

ws_Relax_1280x800Alarm clock rings, you know you didn’t get enough sleep and you are in the bathroom staring in the mirror!  Tired as hell and you pull out the Spinbrush and begin to brush your teeth, only to find out that you mistaken your face primer as toothpaste!

With a dramatic reaction, you immediately rinse your mouth, use mouthwash and do it the right way!

You haven’t even gotten in the shower yet and already the telephone is ringing…to tell you that the appointment has been cancelled!  This was the reason that you were up so doggone early in the first place!

So now, you decide you can have a little breakfast and decide to make oatmeal!

Only to forget about it while you’re upstairs ironing!  The smell and popping known as burning, would be a clue!  I tried to save it (so like my mother!!), but it was ruin.

You’re dressed and get in the car to get the day going! You are still tired and roll down the windows for some air to make you feel better, and you do!

The only thing, this tired feeling was the same every day!  You convinced yourself that you need to get some more sleep or you shouldn’t have eaten so late.  Then you noticed that you were a little bit fustrated, still saying that you were tired.

This is a case of BURNED OUT!  If you can guess, I am talking about myself!!!

So I made an appointment to see my doctor!  The problem was identified within ten minutes! My blood pressure was too high!  While I was there, it was still rising in the doctors office!  Yikes! My body was working overtime and the signs were all there.

The more blood your heart pumps, and the narrower your arteries, the greater your blood pressure will be. When it becomes higher than the level recommended for good health, it’s called high blood pressure!

So with a delicate conversation that it could be regulated, I was placed on medication and scheduled for 2 to 3 additional blood pressure check ups to make it sure it was not elevated!

After three days, I cannot tell you how better I felt.  By being regulated, I had more energy and wanted to know how I could possibly get off the medicine!  So I started watching what I eat and doing more walks with my pooch!  Within the past month, 10 lbs. gone!

So I am going to continue the process in order to feel better and under doctor’s care determine if the medication will not be required.  Nevertheless, I still will continue doing these key things to help.

So I booked a PAUSE vacation!  What’s that? Stop everything and concentrate on yourself! Was this hard! You bet! You come to find out the world still turns and goes on, so within a few days – with me stopping I am totally relaxed!

I’m sleeping everyday past 8am! Taking a morning walk, then swimming in the late afternoon and getting enough sun! Enjoying my surroundings and going back to bed for a true 8 hrs of sleep! Feeling great!

You may not be able to take a PAUSE vacation, but a PAUSE hour or moment for yourself!  If you are not feeling well, pay attention!  Now, I not saying that you may have high blood pressure.  But I will say if you are not feeling yourself or know you need a check-up for any reason…go see your doctor.  You are important to YOU!

Well let me get ready for my walk!  I still have a few more days before returning home! Thanks for all the e-mails on your concerns on where AM I!  It means so much!  I am doing great!

Bucket List! No…The Other One!

2 Aug

Not talking about that list!

That’s the list you write down all your must-do things!

Well, maybe! I’m talking about another bucket list! My list has to do with a glass bowl!

That’s what most hosts use for the ice!

A quick alternative; because the ice is usually the last thing you get and when it arrives – there is a scurry that happens to hold it before it melts!

However, it really doesn’t have to be that way…at all!

Yes, you still have to scurry, but wouldn’t it be nice NOT to do the glass bowl part!

There are so many  wonderful styles for making a statement of ….where’s the ice!!

So your next party, get together or dinner; why not make the ice the show piece!  Have FUN!

Now for those, that have an ice bucket…..try a new look; if you like!

Here’s my favorites!

Maybelline® The NUDES Eye Shadow Palette!

27 Jul

I tried it and I really like it!  I’ve always been daring with colors, that’s why I’m in LOVVVEEE with Maybelline’s COLORsenstional LIPCOLOR in “Make Me Pink“.

So when Maybelline® NEW YORK announced that a new eye shadow palette was coming out a few months ago called The NUDES, I said I would give it a try!

Maybelline® is a beauty brand that has a spectrum of colors which can be popular with any skin tone!

In The NUDES palette, there are 12 shades, which can give you 13 looks.  The shades are described as bold beiges, sultry sands, brazen bronzes, and over the top taupes.  Using it finally; I’d found it instantly to be a HIT!!!!!!

Here is my look that I’d achieved yesterday for a summer evening; getting ready for a night out in SoHo NYC!  I’d just wanted to show you my results with the palette’s shades on my complexion! Added eyeliner and my standby eyelashes……..AMAZING!

Here are Maybelline®’s promotional videos on the many looks. You may even recognize a few of the popular beauty vloggers from YouTube!  Maybelline has even provided their choices for tutorials!   Have fun and if you try the palette; please let me know what you think!
