2 Months Going Strong

What do I notice after 60 days? My clothes fitting differently, random comments from co-workers about dropping the pounds and just simply more confidence. I still have quite a ways to go but I feel like I've set my pace and have more willpower to finish this up. I want that rockin body! I want to be inspiration to others who want to take this journey! I want to see others live healthier and happier lives. I'm still hopeful and excited about this Arbonne adventure...not only for the business side of it, but for what it will do for me on my personal goals!

Here's pics from the completion of month 2. Please ignore the zero make-up face! ---Insert small sales pitch here---I've been using Arbonne's RE9 anti-aging skin care line. I have always been self conscious of my skin complexion. I will not leave the house without make-up on. Even though I still don't leave the house without  my make-up on, I would've never taken a picture of me in the past with zero make-up on! I'm so impressed with this skin care line that I am getting more confidence in my natural beauty as well. Maybe this new-found confidence is pretend because of the "happy" feeling I've been experiencing since changing my diet...I'll let you be the judge! But keep your opinions to yourself, unless of course it's all praise! ;)

Update on me!

It's been 7 weeks now since I started my journey to a healthier and happier me! I'm so excited to see where this journey continues to take me and I can't wait to help others transform their lives as well. I have been really trying to incorporate exercise more into my busy schedule. I've been doing Ballet Blast one to two times a week and running at least once a week as well. I'm at the point where I'm not concerned about the weight number, I'm more interested in the inches continuing to decrease and to start toning up.

Please ignore the picture quality of this week's photo shoot. I've been feeling really good with my progress this last week or so and wanted to get it down on paper. I'll take a more "official" one next week documenting the end of 2 months. See time flies by so quickly, you all could commit 30 days to jumpstart this for you!

Ending weight: 146.8lb 135lbs 132.6
Smallest part of waist: 29" 27.5" 27.5"
Belly button: 36.5" 35" 34"

Don't forget your skin!

WOW! Did you know that our skin is our largest functioning organ that works with our kidneys and liver to DETOXIFY our bodies?

WOW! I finally got to try the SeaSource Detox Spa Foaming Sea Salt Scrub and I am already in love. I didn't realize how dry my skin was until I used this product. I feel like I have new skin! Use this 2-3 times a week to exfoliate and clean out the toxins from your skin. My skin just feel refreshed! Can't wait to launch this product with my Foot Spa Parties.

28 days are what?!?

So it's been a week since I've completed my 28 day detox program. I cannot stress it enough how much better I feel since I have been putting clean foods into my body. I feel like I "work" the way I'm supposed to work. I have natural energy and "inner positivity." (is that even a something??) What I mean is that I just feel good inside. I want to do better with myself, with my family, with my life. I feel happier more and motivated to better me. I have more energy to get me through the day...and I have been getting less sleep because I have been liking the "me" time at night. I just feel the best I have felt in a long time ok probably ever!

I really haven't had the desire to eat "crappy" food yet. I know I'll get temptations some time but for now I'm maintaining my routine. I have had a few whole wheat sandwiches since stopping the detox and I do feel different when I eat them. My stomach feels does go away but to me it's just not worth it to feel that way so I'll eat it sparingly. I figure I have come so far in just 4 weeks, why stop now; why not get to my goal. It's worked this good so far it will only get better right?!?

I have really been pondering on CHANGE these past couple weeks. I want to CHANGE me, CHANGE my family interactions, CHANGE how I view life. I want to get more quality time with my children. I have always said that I am a working girl...and although I 100% still feel that way, I know I can continue that "part" of me but going in a different direction. I am so blessed to find the avenue to go in a different direction and will continue to make the effort to CHANGE ME and help others CHANGE themselves in the process!
