Healthy Feet

So on Monday I started this foot remedy that I found on Pinterest. Had I followed through all 5 days, my feet would be awesome smooth right now. I only did it for three days though but my feet look 70% better than they did. It's very simple to do but you just have to have the time to do it.

Here's what you need:

Warm water
1/2 cup Epson Salt
Firm Tooth Brush
Nail File
Vitamin E Oil (make sure that it is the oil, not cream)

Step 1: Fill a bucket or the tub with warm water and 1/2 cup of Epson Salt. ( Make sure the Epson salt is dissolved before you soak your feet.
Step 2: Soak your feet in the warm water for 30 min.
Step 3: Pat feet dry and rub effected area with tooth brush. You only need to do this for a short time to get the dry skin off.
Step 4: Rise feet and pat dry. Then use nail file on affected areas until everything is smooth.
Step 5: Rub Oil onto feet and then cover with socks.

Do this for 5 consecutive days for best results. After 5 days, make sure you keep your feet moisturized with lotion.

It really does work or I wouldn't post it. I'm going to try again next week to do it for all 5 days since I'll have more free time. If you've known me for a long time, you know my feet are REALLY cracked and dried around my heel area, so for this to work was amazing!

One Day at a Time

Okay, so I'm going to try this again. Originally I started this blog back in 2009 but I never kept up with it. Mostly because I got to busy and totally forgot about it. This time, I'm going to use it for more that just my thoughts. I want to use it for showing the delicious dinners I make and the things I do to my apartment. I also want to show the transformation I'll be going through with my weight loss.

If you've missed the past couple years of my life, here's what's been happening:

  • I graduated from CSUSB in June 2010 and then started working there full time in September that same year.
  • I started my Master's program last September at University of Redlands. I'm half way through and I will have my Master's in Higher Education. No, it is not for teaching. It is for administration.
  • I finally moved out of the desert to San Bernardino and I am living on my own with my two cats.
  • Ryan and I are still together. We just celebrated 5 1/2 years. We broke up for about a week but let's face it; we are made for each other.
  • Lastly and probably the biggest news is the fact that I am currently waiting on approval from my insurance to have gastric bypass surgery. This decision was not easy for me. After struggling to lose weight for over a year and multiple sprains, I talked to my doctor about my options. I've gone though all of the pre-testing and I am just waiting to see what the insurance says. This is something that I was not sure I wanted to put out into general knowledge, but with the support that I've been getting and the fact that if it is approved, I'm going to shrink super fast, I might as well say something now.
That's it for now. I have reading to do for class anyway. But I will leave you with a picture of my babies.
