The year about me

I’ve spent a lot of energy not being in pictures with my girls.

Now that I’ve been taking care of myself I still hesitate, but then I see this, me and them! And in me I see results of my healthy living over this year! I took back my life this year and in a slow and steady way.

I am proud of this picture! and hey look at my arms!

I started this year ready to take control. I found a plan – the Arbonne Healthy Living Cleanse that I began in earnest in February. My husband and kids came along for the ride as the family meals changed. I had recipes for clean eating that were gluten-free and soy-free. I modified my plate as necessary but was cooking for all of us as a whole. After losing about 20 pounds over the course of 40 days I clicked into maintenance and added back a meal in my days.

Since changing the way I eat I feel better and look better. Don’t get me wrong there are still cheat days or maybe weeks but for the most part I’m on this clean eating way of life.

From there I added strength training via a boot camp that I started in May 1x week and in the summer kicked it up to 2x a week.
The support of the online group with Arbonne really helped. I found myself thinking I need to share these experiences and am now an Arbonne Independent Consultant.

I’ve gone on to use many other skincare and hair care products while still eating with Arbonne Healthy Living in mind.

We are near the end of this calendar year but I am continuing on this journey about me!
