Down With Tummy Frown—Week 2 & Week 3

Down with the Tummy Frown

I didn’t get a blog post written after Week 2 of my 28 Day Detox Program through Arbonne (no gluten, dairy, processed sugar, or soy—and drastically reduce caffeine until I can get to none).  I was too busy discovering and trying new ways of shopping for food, new foods, and new recipes. Whew!

This experience is a mixture of challenges and rewards. Challenges—because I have to learn new things about food and my body. Rewards—because my body, mind, and overall health are constantly improving.

Week 3 involved an added specific body cleanse. That resulted in trip after trip after trip to the bathroom—flushing out even more toxins. Some tummy cramps and definite exhaustion. This all must mean some of the stuff I’ve been putting in my body all these years is not of the highest quality for health—to say the least!

Here are the body stats after three weeks:  Lost 6 lbs. so far. Lost a total of 16 ½ inches overall.

Another stat that is driving me a little crazy—I have to keep pulling up my pants so I don’t have the droopy pants crotch. I think I can handle this kind of crazy!

I’m sleeping so much better, and I have much more energy in the day. And I’m becoming much more normal. No, wait! People who know me would say it’s impossible for me to be normal.

Regular! That’s it! I’m becoming much more regular—you know, with eliminations. And that’s a really good thing. Who wants all those toxins just hanging on inside my body and adding yucky inflammation and weight. Eeewww!

Oh… and I’m down to ½ cup of coffee most days. Some days I discover at the end of the day that I didn’t drink even the ½ cup. That’s definitely a surprise because I’ve always enjoyed my coffee—lots of coffee—morning through night.

One more week! Feeling good!
