BTW Ladies - I've found a new use for baking soda. It is good in the bath with epsom salts to help relax the muscles and soften the water. Then take some in the palm of your hand and massage it into your face like a fascial scrub, but waaayyyy cheaper, rinse it off after massaging it in for a few secs. After you get out of the tub put a moisturizer on and your skin feels really soft and refreshed, especially the next am. There is also a nice healthy glow as well.
Instead of tooth paste at night I use baking soda for that as well. It kinda polishes and helps whiten your teeth as well.
My moto for 2017...Do what you need to do. Count what you want to count. Enjoy the process.
