This sums it up ya’al…sugar detox day 2…

I wasn’t able to get much sleep last night (I have a hard time saying no to people and was working until close to midnight) but I feel a bit run down this morning, but that’s totally normal when you(I) are detoxing from sugar.

I get cranky and headache and tired, but it doesn’t last long and then I feel GREAT! So got to get through the blas to get to the ahs!

A random thought I had this morning was “Dom you are CRAZY for doing this rightt before holidays!” and then “Im done being owned by sugar!”

SO here goes! Cheers! To health and happy brain and body!

Detox Slimming Wraps

343f9dc26dd5edf8df27f9d44d958ea4

So, what IS a detox slimming wrap? It is just a quick way to drop an inch or so around your tummy, thighs, or arms.  Disclaimer, though: Arbonne International didn’t come up with these wraps. They don’t sell them and do not endorse them. These wraps were created by a smarty-pants Independent Consultant. 

What’s so different about these wraps? The Arbonne products! They’re pure, safe and beneficial! You can use the products for so many things!

Also, you can reuse your wrap! Just toss them in the wash after each use, and use them again! But, the magic is in the products. You WILL NOT get the same results without the products.

What you need:

  1. Detox Rescue Wash
  2. Foaming Sea Salt Scrub
  3. Renewing Body Gelee
  4. Purifying Body Soak
  5. Re-mineralizing hand lotion 24 Hour
  6. 5 in 1 Massage Oil (optional – for extra support and hydration)
  7. Saran wrap
  8. A towel or hand towel
  9. A dish bin, bowl or sink: somewhere to hold water to soak wrap
  10. An herbal wrap or large ace bandage. (latex-free)
  11. 20 – 32 oz of water.
  12. String to measure

You can find all of these Arbonne products at http://www.dominiquerondeau.arbonne.com. Ask me how to get the BEST deal

What to do:

  1. Put your string around the area you’re wrapping.  Cut the string so that it’s meeting end to end. Mark using a sharpie so you know where to measure when you’re done the wrapping.
  2. Put on some comfy PJ pants or shorts and tuck a towel into the top of them so they don’t get soaking wet. They will likely get damp.
  3. Soak wrap for 10 – 15 minutes in bin/bowl/sink with a teaspoon of Purifying Sea Soak.
  4. Use one pump of Detoxifying Rescue Wash with a bit of water to wash off the surface of the area you’re wrapping. You can just use your hand in circular motions. Do not wash off.
  5. Add a nickel sized amount of Foaming Sea Salt Scrub and Renewing Body Gelee and rub all over the area that will be wrapped. You can use a little extra Glee if you’d like.
  6. Wring out the wrap. It should be damp but not soaking wet/dripping.
  7. Wrap area so that no gaps are showing between the wrap. Secure wrap with prongy-things that came with your wrap. The wrap should be tight but remember you need to be able to breathe.
  8. Wrap 5 – 7 layers of saran around to totally cover the wrap. This keeps the body heat in and keeps the products ‘activated’. Dollar store plastic wrap does NOT work for this. It’s worth getting the good stuff. I use the Glad brand.
  9. Put your clothes on/your shirt down and go on about your business. Leave the wrap on for 60 – 90 minutes. I have clients that clean or cook or whatever to pass the time.
  10. After you remove the wrap, use a washcloth or wet paper towel (or jump in the shower if you’re able) to wash off access sea salt scrub.
  11. Apply ReMineralizing Lotion 24H + 5-in-1 Massage Oil all over the area you wrapped.
  12. Remeasure using the same string to see how many inches you lost!

IMPORTANT: You’ll need to drink the water during the duration of the wrap. No need to chug! Unless that’s your thing… PS. no you’re not losing ‘water weight’ as many people presume. The products turn toxins into salts your body can eliminate when you sweat and go to the bathroom. So that water is just helping to push out the toxins.

HINT: The detox process keeps working for up to 72 hours, so don’t be surprised or bummed if you don’t lose anything right away. Measure again later on in the day and the next couple of days using the same string.

HOT TIP: Avoid processed foods, soda, gluten, sugars and dairy at all costs during the 72 hours for best results! All of these things cause bloating and inflammation and will undo the detox process.

PS These are TEMPORARY results! Healthy eating and exercise are the only ways to see lasting results 🙂
