The BEST Protein Bars in the world

January 20th, 2017|HEALTH/FITNESS, RECIPES|

“The BEST protein bars in the world” sound like a tall order to live up to?

BEST protein bars, protein bar recipe, chocolate protein bars, meal replacement bars, healthy snack, no-bake protein bars

You need to try these and tell me I’m wrong.  I don’t even like protein bars as a rule, but I’ve been snacking away on these like they were candy.  Truly, I even had one as dessert the other […]

Bee Allergies

August 29th, 2016|HEALTH/FITNESS, Uncategorised|

I’m allergic to bees.

Rather, I WAS allergic to yellowjackets, but am no more.

When I was in my 20’s I was stung several times after mowing over a yellow jacket nest that was hidden under the roots of  a tree.  (Did you know yellowjackets will build nests in the ground?  Neither did I until this incident.)

Anyways, I immediately broke out into large hives all over my arms and chest.  I’d been stung by the occasional bee as a child, but this […]

15 Ways to Get More Vegetables into Your Diet

March 26th, 2016|HEALTH/FITNESS|

This is Lisa Austin and she is the owner of It Fits Personal Training.  I approached Lisa to ask if she would share some of her blog articles here on 100Things2Do and she said yes!  Better still, she is offering 100Things2Do readers a limited time, DISCOUNTED offer on her “21 Day Rapid Slim Down” program!  That would mean that if you start Monday, you could look better, feel healthier and be stronger by April […]

Yoga for Beginners – Start Your Spring Training

March 21st, 2016|FREE PRINTABLES, HEALTH/FITNESS|

As you may (or may not) know, I’ve been doing yoga two or three times a week for just over a year now.

It was nothing I was ever interested in trying – I mean, with a rear-end the size of mine, sticking it in the air seems cruel to fellow participants, not to mention my ego.  I did sit through a class or two at the gym and was mortified at both my inflexibility and appearance in yoga pants – […]

Tfees Straws

March 2nd, 2016|HEALTH/FITNESS, Uncategorised|

This post came about because I was surfing Instagram and came across a post from Tammi at Tfees™ Straws.

The image was of a steaming cup of coffee (or tea) with this clear plastic straw in it – something like this:

Tfees Straws - to protect your teeth from staining, erosion and sensitivity

See that tiny little clear stick in the top of my mug?  Pretty discreet right?

Cleaning Makeup Brushes

February 9th, 2016|CLEAN, HEALTH/FITNESS|

While I had everything out to clean my hairbrushes the other day, I decided it was time to tackle my makeup brushes as well.

The only makeup I wear is a bit of eyeshadow, eyeliner and lip gloss – so I’m not sure how these got as dirty as they were?

Toothbrush Abrasion

January 24th, 2016|HEALTH/FITNESS|

This is going to seem like a weird post.  I’m not cleaning, building or organizing anything and no, this isn’t a sponsored post – this is one of those articles that I write because I like to share information.

Information that I came across “the hard way”.

I brush my teeth.  We all brush our teeth right? But did you know that if you brush your teeth too hard or aggressively you can actually cause your gums to recede?

Did you know that […]

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

As we roll into the New Year with new goals and aspirations – attention seems to focus on health.  Maybe it’s because all of the Holiday binging has left us feeling slack and sluggish, maybe it’s because we’ve added a few pounds and the clothes Santa brought are a bit snug around the middle, maybe it’s just about fresh starts and clean slates, but whatever the reason magazines, television and yes – even us pesky bloggers – are […]

How to Get Dressed – A Fall Capsule Wardrobe

September 17th, 2015|For me, HEALTH/FITNESS|

Some of you may remember a second blog I ran about a year ago – Daily Glam?

Don’t go looking for it now, it’s been taken down – but it was a blog to teach you how to dress.

Don’t worry, I wasn’t the one giving the fashion advice – I was working with Stylists to come up with different outfits each day… and I loved it.

Truly LOVED it.

It made my days so much easier in that all I had to do […]

Allergy Season – and Some Natural Remedies

September 13th, 2015|HEALTH/FITNESS|

I have the privilege of being in an accountability group that includes a brilliant Homeopath – Joanna Rogister, DCHM, R.H.N., BA.

I must have been snuffling and sneezing during one of our meetings because the topic of allergies came up.  Joanna told me she had planned to post an article on her website with regards to the trials and tribulations of allergy sufferers, and offering up advice and suggestions on all natural, homeopathic alternatives to help with the inflammation […]
