Self Tanner vs. Jen: Volume 1

Last night I did something.  I succumbed to my sanity and tried self tanner.  Some would ask "Why?" and all I can tell you is, I blame YouTube and beauty influencers with long tanned legs. You see, it started with tan lines on my stomach. Since having kids my stomach hasn't seen the light of day, and it legit startles me every time I take a shower and have to face myself in the mirror. I figured a self tanner would help solve that problem and I set out for product reviews, DIY strategies, and tips and tricks. Which then led me to YouTube. Which then led me to Instagram. Which then led me to hashtags. Which then led me to realize Jergens is still around and hey, a newish (to me at least) product: foam!

Lessons for my Soul

This year I promised to stop making excuses and to stop putting things on my invisible wish list - and just start doing the things I “wished” I could do. Like reading again. My oldest kid will be 10 this year, and since we’ve started our family I can list on one hand the number of books I’ve read. Before kids, I was a reading machine, and I miss it!

So for 2020 I’ve committed to reading 6 books - and I’ve already read 2 and I’m just about to start my third. More on those books later 😉

Next on my list was to make my health a priority as well as to be grateful for the things that I have. I’ve been doing a good job so far - I joined Weight Watchers and have lost almost 6 pounds in a few weeks. I’m more mindful of what I’m eating...but if I’m craving something like chips or a burger I eat it and try not to feel guilty! Baby steps!

Did you make any goals for the year? It’s never too late to start, share your goals in the comments below.
