Diet Pals 24 - 30 Pamper Week!!!

quiltingbunnyMay 23, 2004

Okay, I am still waiting for my cinnamon order. But, just for fun, I thought this should be a pamper week! Let's not just focus on healthy eating - let's pamper ourselves this week.


Because WE DESERVE IT!!!!

I am not suggesting going out and buying stuff - I am looking for natural things we can do at home. I plan to goop myself from head to toe this week.

What is your favourite thing to do to pamper yourself?

Please don't use anything on your body that you have a known allergy to.

Plan to stretch out and relax.

Eyes: Slices of cucumber or warm, wet, teabags

Oily Skin:

Mash up strawberries (about 7) and add a tablespoon of honey (can warm in microwave for a couple of seconds)THEN add strawberries and smooth on your skin.


Mash a small banana, 2 tbsp ground oatmeal, 1 tbsp honey


Mashed avocado & honey

There's a link below for some other ideas. You can also search the internet for homemade facial body scrub

Going to get a strong hair conditioner and goop my hair.

Diet wise - last week was challenging. Today I am staying home - have had insomnia really bad last night and plan to get some shut eye today. Also planning to get outside for a walk. Not up to work - totally exhausted. Did not get much done on my stepper but did do a lot of walking both days.

So, what pampering ideas do you want to share?

Heck, I am even going to do my legs and buff myself up from head to toe over the course of this week. Was checking online spa prices and thought - forget it! I'll do it at home. Going to dig in the bathroom - I have a tube of nice green clay masque - going to do my arms, neck, chest and anything else I can reach (stay REAL quiet) and then shower off.

Did you know moisturisers work better if you remove your dead skin? Also, before I forget, you should rinse yourself with warm water before your facial to open the pores so the facial can work better - I guess a warm shower prior to scrubbing down as well would apply.

Today, I start my pamper week!

Hello everyone!

I was on vacation last week. We sailed on the Voyager of the Seas out of Bayonne, NJ. What a spectacular ship she is!!

My eating was so-so, I did not lose, but I don't think I gained either. Not bad, considering I was surrounded by food 24/7!!! I took the stairs everywhere, so I got in a great amount of exercise.

I'm going to pamper myself in several ways this week....pedicure; bath salts while reading a book (some trashy, girly story I think! LOL), a facial scrub; and an appointment later this week for a shampoo and cut at my favorite salon that serves up decaf coffee to patrons while we chat about the latest gossip!!!

I'm still hanging in there, McPeg. I am NOT giving up; I am going to win this battle!

Still hanging in there, too, McPeg. Lost another 2 pounds as of Monday!

My pampering will be a bubble bath, and starting my summer toenail-painting season. Should be easier to reach them this year. ;)

Okay, I am re-energising this my bath scrub stuff and....its been wax & strips to rip the hair out on my legs only. If ya hear any howling from across the pond - its me!!!!!
Today is a detox day for me. Yogurts, fruit, water, fruit, frozen fruit, water and okay - A COFFEE (let's not push it!).

Glad to see my pals looking after themselves. Will check in later to see how you are getting on with things!

Hello everyone!

I feel back in the groove! Drinking lots of liquids and counting every point, down the 1/2 point!! Only used 4 flex points this week.

Have a luncheon meeting where the agenda states "pizza and wings". Pooh! I brought in a zip-lock bag of celery and cherry tomatoes to have before I go in (or I'll bring it along). One slice of that pizza they serve is 6 points, so I should be OK. Had 2-points of yogurt for breakfast, and I also brought a 1-point banana for later this afternoon (before my exercise class).

On the pampering front, I've not gotten to it yet, but tonight, I plan to give myself a pedicure while watching the final American Idol show. (OK, I'll admit that I watch it!) Two years ago, DH gave me one of those wax machines that you put your hands or feet into...I'm gonna use that before my polish. Then before I go to bed, I'll put on heavy foot cream and cotton socks so that I am ready for sandals this year! Hoping that with my weight loss, I can start getting prettier shoes that have a younger look!!

Gotta run and take this phone call. Why does business get in the way of my stuff? LOL!!!

Well, guess what arrived today???? My cinnamon keep an eye out for that cinnamon challenge week - I need it myself!
Last night had italian food with family (will get a 3 week break from all these routines with DH going on holiday home to visit his family)...I get the TV remote, QUIET, can listen to my tunes - fewer dishes - and so on! Going to be stepping more on my machine because I won't be interrupting his star trek!
Have a fabby day!

Haven't posted lately.....sorry, my computer has been on the fritz. I have now lost a total of 15 pounds...Whoohoo!! and am almost down 2 sizes! I did some weight lifting with my husband yesterday, but still having trouble finding the time to excercise with a job and 3 kids, but I try. For my pampering, I went out and got myself a new haircut and style. I also went to a plant swap last week and am busy planting about 40 new plants.

Hi all - Missed my WW meeting yesterday because I was called into work but I went this morning and lost 2 lbs. That made me feel great. At work they have donuts out all day and yesterday I was able not to have any. I drank my water and when I really wanted a donut I nibbled on a rice cake (which I happen to like). I still have this blasted cold and not feeling great but I have to say just losing those 2 lbs this morning has perked me up. I am planning a WW recipe for dinner and plan to get to Curves some time today. For pampering I plan to get a haircut tomorrow and give myself a manicure. Thanks so much for the encouragement.

It looks like we're all ladies here, so I guess I can post this--I had to move to the tighter set of hooks on one of my bras yesterday. This hasn't happened in years--Progress!

Great news, Erica! I noticed that same thing about a month ago (on ME of course; not you!) LOL

Things are really looking up lately (or is it down!!!) Haaaaaaaaa!!!

Hi all! Congrats on those lbs. lost!

I haven't weighed in the past week and this weekend will be tough, holiday stuff. But, I have worked outside cutting my hedges and have been working with my weights more. I want to get my arms toned up----got that hanging chicken-fat stuff--lol----

Great idea, McPeg. I'm going to do the facial thing tonight. And my eyebrows probably need arching, again. Take care, everyone and have a great holiday!
