Tipsy Tuesday (#149)

Just in case you resolved to exercise more....

Tip #149

and you need that extra little push...peppermint to the rescue.

The smell of peppermint, researchers say, boosts mood and motivation during physical exertion and improves athletic performance. They suggest that sniffing the scent during workout sessions may give you the extra push that you need to excel.

But, sorry, ladies and gents, I don't think this means that you can exercise while eating a York peppermint patty...

**Alright now, I'm talking tips, head over to see what Impulsive and Shawn are talking about on Talk to us Tuesday!**

That's a bummer because I really like York Peppermint Patty!

So, I guess Junior Mints are out too? :(

Whaaaat? So when I'm at the gym, should I stick a couple of peppermints up my nose? I'm really needing a boost in my motivation too.

Thanks or linking up, Lovie! xoxo

My mom was just telling me about peppermint the other day! So maybe I need to get some kind of peppermint-scent for my new Scentsy warmer and put it on when I'm doing my exercise videos! Which reminds me...I need to dust those off, they've been lying unused for the past two weeks...
