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!

Say no to the nasties!

Did you know the FDA has no regulations on skincare in the US? Under the law, cosmetic products and ingredients do not needFDA premarket approval, with the exception of color additives…guys that is SCARY!

What does this mean? Well on a basic level anything can be added to our products without being regulated.

Parabens, for instance, are a class of widely used preservatives in cosmetic and pharmaceutical products. Chemically, they are a series of para hydroxybenzoate’s or esters of para hydroxy benzoic acid. Parabens are effective preservatives in many types of formulas and they cause cancer so why they heck would we want to be putting them in or on or even near our bodies?

Arbonne has chosen to follow the guidelines of the Eurpenan Union and the Eropean Cosmetic Directive because their standards are SO high. This makes me feel GREAT about what I am using on my skin!

Do your research! Thoug stors like Target and Macy’s offer an affordable and convient options they are not always the best for your skin.

Fear of Chocolate

As everyone who becomes an intuitive eater does, you start facing and accepting “bad” foods.
Last week I met a client at an ice cream shop!!! I was so anxious freaked out. I couldn’t even choose a flavor.  I hadn’t had any processed sugar since May! I asked the girl scooping the ice cream her favorite flavor and asked for a small dish of that….I ate it and didn’t die. I had a sugar headache and knew next time maybe Ill only need to eat a bite or two.
Today I conquered another fear…chocolate

image

I ate some Hershey chocolate and I am ok. Im not craving more. I gave myself 150% permission to eat some and moved the heck on.
So fears are being abolished. Food is being put in its proper place and Im feeling free!

I HATE the Word Exercise

image

The word “exercise” is so unappealing. And “work out” is even worse. Those words bring up a feeling of duty or punishment.
Movement is my kind of word 😛 I move my body daily and enjoy it when I think of it in a healthy and happy manner. When it isn’t a duty but a joy. When it isn’t a must do but a get to.
My preferred methods of movement are  walking, yoga, & hiking. I used to be a runner but I hated it. Took me almost a year of doing it before I said not thanks Im good. Yes I lost weight from it but it was not an enjoyable experience and I dreaded it.
So with all this being said, find your favorite(s) way to move and do it. If it gets boring find something else. Don’t go to the gym because you have to. Dont run because you have to. Don’t lift weights because you have to. Do what ever you want to!

A Weekend of Love, Business, Food and Fun

What a whirlwind of a weekend! Friday it was HOT out and I SO did not want to cook so we chose the next best thing…Panda Express

image

Saturday morning I woke up at 4am to drive to Anaheim, NOT for Disney but even better, for Arbonne!
What a long, fun, empowering day!

image

This shows all the highs of the day! Good food, awesome products, palm trees, sunsets, & FREE Arbonne goodies!  It doesn’t show my GPS not working and me guessing how to get home….4 and a half hours later…it doesn’t show my awesome sideline sisters! It doesn’t show the beautiful hard working leaders who poured into us. It doesn’t show the growth and call to action!
I had a hard time sleeping Saturday night. Not sure if I was over tired or too excited!
Had a wonderful breakfast at a local restaurant The Pantry Sunday morning with Andrew and some friends.

Did some Arbonne work, grocery shopping, & a nap Sunday afternoon  😛
