Curing the Holiday Hangover

This year, I am trying a new approach to my overall health and wellness. I want to treat my entire body better- by eating healthier, sleeping more, relieving stress, and working out!

Seven Day Cleanse: Day Seven and Beyond

I didn’t want to post a follow up to the seven day cleanse immediately. Why? Because I knew that even though day seven was the final day of the cleanse, the product hadn’t finished it’s effect on my body. So here I am, ready to tell you all about day seven and beyond.I felt the cleanse continuing to pull toxins out of my body for about a week after day seven.

Arbonne Seven Day Cleanse: Days Two And Three

I figured that by day two – and for sure by day three – that I’d be really feeling the effects of this cleanse. That I’d be hungry, not feeling like myself and be really sick of drinking this stuff day in and day out. But I have to tell you guys the truth: I’m not hating it. I’m actually really enjoying it. With the fizz sticks, I can honestly say that the cleanse is actually tasty. When was the last time you heard that about a toxin cleanse? I know, right?...more
