When I think about why I write this blog the main, number one reason is to encourage women. I have a passion for helping women feel great about themselves, be confident and look great too. I don’t think it’s vain to take good care of yourself and feel great about the way you look. I think it carries over in so many aspects of our lives as well.
However, such a huge aspect of being confident and feeling great is health. If you are tired all the time, feel sick often, or have some extra weight to lose, it’s hard to feel great with new hair, makeup, and clothes. It’s something that I’ve wanted to touch on here for a while – living a healthier life. Eating healthy foods and becoming more active are huge factors in the way we feel about ourselves.
Back in June of last year I did an Arbonne 28 day detox. I didn’t do it to lose weight. I did it because I didn’t feel great. I was tired and I knew I wasn’t eating as healthy as I could be. I don’t eat out that much, but when I am not careful, I can find myself snacking too often and drinking too many Diet Cokes.
I lost 4 or 6 pounds on the detox. I know that’s not a ton, but the best thing I gained from the detox was that for one, I felt great. My body felt lighter, cleaner and I had more energy. Second of all, one of the best things that happened, was that I didn’t want the junk!! I didn’t crave my Diet Coke or cookies or even sweet snacks after dinner!! That was a huge feat for me. Third of all I saw a lot of other benefits like my skin cleared up, I wasn’t as tired and I actually enjoyed eating healthy.
Now, it’s been a while since the detox and slowly I’ve gotten back into some not-so-great habits. I still don’t drink Diet Coke and I heavily limit sugar in our house, but I snack way too much and I don’t always choose healthy meals. It’s time to do it again.
This time, I want you to do it with me!
I am starting the detox on May 4th and I want you to join. Doing the detox or even just changing your eating habits is so much easier when you have a team around you. So grab your husbands, grab your friends, let’s do this.
Here is what this detox is NOT:
- A quick fix – this is a way to kickstart a healthy lifestyle. Most of the people who do this program continue long after the program is done, often losing more weight and feeling even better in the months following the detox. It’s a lifestyle change, not a fad diet.
- A diet – Like I just said, this is not a diet!! This is a lifestyle change. We have to retrain ourselves to reach for healthy snacks, fruits and vegetables, and pay attention to what we eat. This detox is a starting point for a new lifestyle.
- A weight-loss program – This is a jump start to a healthier, cleaner way of living by eliminating high allergenic foods from your diet for a certain amount of time. This allows your body to rid itself of the toxins from foods/drinks we consume (i.e. preservatives, processed foods, GMOs, etc). It brings your body down from an acidic state to an alkaline state. You could lose weight in the process if there is weight to be lost, but the program is designed to re-teach the way we eat & the way we think about food.
So who should detox then? Short answer: EVERYONE! Some of the benefits most people see while doing this detox are healthy weight loss, clearer skin, better sleep, more energy, no more feeling sluggish, no more joint pain, no more acid reflux, improved food palette and more! If you struggle with any of these, this detox is for you.
What does the detox involve? The Arbonne 28 Day detox plan works by utilizing certified vegan, pure clean products that help people remove preservatives, chemicals, and certain foods that can cause allergies from their diet for 28 days. This results in efficient digestion, weight loss, increased energy and overall better body function.
You are required to restrict what you eat during the 28 day program to help your body get to an alkaline state and to see if you have an intolerance/allergy to any of the restricted foods. When off the challenge you are encouraged to slowly re-introduce these foods one at a time to see how your body tolerates it. After the detox you are also encouraged to continue the healthy lifestyle, you just don’t have to be as strict.
Here’s how it works. During the detox you will have access to meal plans, recipes, grocery lists, online support (the best part!) and our weekly newsletter. Basically we give you all the tools you need to make this detox the best idea you’ve had this year!!
Now, I am pretty careful what I choose to be a part of and have said no to plenty of opportunities to date. The reason I have chosen to be a part of Arbonne is because I have seen how well it works, I have seen it transform lives and I love watching people change for the better & feel great! I truly believe that this starts with your health. In fact, I have not heard one bad review about this program since I’ve started hearing about it – over a year ago! It can be life changing, you guys, and I want you to be a part of it!
Here are some of the great reviews from a few ladies who have done the challenge.
I know this is a lot of information, and if you’re interested you probably have a lot of questions. I completely understand and I really want to help! If you’re interested in hearing more about this detox and possibly starting it with me on the 4th, sign up here to get more information or e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I’ll then send you an e-mail with some more info, prices, and how to get started as well as answer any questions you might have. At that point, once you feel comfortable, you can choose whether or not you’d like to start the program!
And just to be clear, if you do the detox, you are not signed up to sell Arbonne product. You do get discounts as a preferred client. If you’d like to sell it, that is something entirely different that I’d be happy to discuss with you. Just shoot me an e-mail at any time!
Alright, who’s with me!! I can’t wait to start this detox, I know my body needs it!!
