Back To Basics With 30 Days To Healthy Living

This Monday I start my 30 Days To Healthy Living journey. I’m super excited about it. This is simply the next step for me in my quest to live healthier. Not only am I doing this for myself, but for my clients and future clients so that I have this wealth of firs hand experience to share. I will be able to help each of you better as you choose to make the decision to eat healthier and live healthier because I will have taken the same steps. For the next 30 days I will try and share things like recipes, tips and tell you exactly how I’m feeling along the way. Today is supposed to be a food prep day but I’ve been sick since Thursday and today I spent most of my day in bed with a super bad sinus cold. So hubby may be doing some of that prep and the rest we’ll just wind it the rest of the week 😉 So now onto a little of what the month will look like….

Nutrition

My nutrition plan has become very specific over the course of time,  trial, error and education. My nutrition has evolved and changed over the years based on what I’ve learned about food and nutrition.

And with that evolution Arbonne’s 30 Days To Healthy Living was a natural fit. It’s pretty much the direction our nutrition plan at home has been heading towards anyway. It’s not rocket science and it’s not a diet. It’s re-learning or learning how to eat for optimal health, DAILY. Not a diet, no heavy restrictions. We’re all smart enough to know there’s foods that are better for us than others. The science of food and how it affects our health and longevity proves this more and more every day.

The 30 Days To Healthy Living nutrition plan is; gluten free whole grains , fruits, vegetables and healthy fat, along with fish, seafood and eggs (I omit: red meats, pork, and other fowl – conscientious choice) and I will add poultry no more than four times a month (conscientious choice).  As I learn to cook with beans and lentils more I will eventually eliminate chicken from our shopping list all together. 

And the nutrition plan also omits; dairy and processed sugar – both of which I’ve already mostly omitted from our daily menu. We do occasionally have our treats which include processed sugars but as of now I choose to not bake because that just leaves temptation siting around the house. We do allow ourselves to venture to sugary foods and will indulge in good chocolate, and a stop at Starbucks once in a while. But as a treat, not as the norm. We also will allow for celebrations, but my body thanks me for keeping it at a treat. 

Wine I drink in moderation and water water water, teas and occasional sparkling waters or a cup of cappuccino.

Arbonne Nutrition and Supplements
I’m all set to go as you can see in the photo above. I made an important investment in my health, one I am super excited about! So what’s in the 30 Days To Healthy Living Kit? Well you can customize it a bit and I already had told you I won’t be incorporating the 7 Day Cleanse as it’s usually done (the week before the 30 Day Challenge begins), but I will be doing it the alternative way. At the end of my first week of my 30-day program, I’ll use one pouch of the 7-Day Cleanse. Then, at the beginning of the second week of my 30-day program, I’ll use 7-Day Body Cleanse on your first and second day of that week. And them repeat this same step for the third and fourth week. So my kit contains:

  • 2 -2lb bags of Protein Shake Mix (chocolate and vanilla)
  • 1 -1lb bag Daily Fiber Booster
  • 2 boxes of Energy Fizz Sticks (citrus and pomegranate)
  • 1 carton Digestion Plus (3- stick packs)
  • 1 Arbonne Essentials Greens Balance
  • 2 boxes of Daily Detox Tea (20 bags each)
  • Support Guide
  • PLUS I will be in a group with others who are at all different stages of their 30 days. I will get tips, recipes, support and have a place for all my questions to be answered.
  • + I added on the 7 Day Cleanse

Exercise                                                                                                                                         \
Daily exercise is pretty much a given part of my lifestyle now. I’m mixing it up with walking, running, hiking, Les Mills Bodypump and Bodycombat along with Bodyflow and yoga. I get bored super easy and taking it outside or to a gym for drop in classes keeps me from getting bored. I have Les Mills streaming so I can do those at home when I really just want to be close to home. But I found a daily routine of at home fitness caused me to fall into a rut, get bored and eventually just not do it. So I needed lots of flexibility and changes. After all fitness should be part of your lifestyle, not something that limits you to staying indoors alone.
