Day 5: Arbonne 30 Day Challenge to Healthy Living

If any of you have ever done a detox then you know there are usually withdrawals from cutting something out of your daily diet. Sometimes those withdrawal symptoms are debilitating and sometimes they are just annoying. The withdrawals that I have had with this detox have been really mild. I have definitely craved sweets and breads but I have managed to stay strong.

I am still sticking with the protein shake in the morning and for lunch. I have had the same protein shakes each day. On day 4 I made some scrambled eggs with almond milk instead of regular milk. I also started putting a lemon slice in my herbal tea at night and it is soooo good.

On day 4 I prepped my supper for the whole week. I don’t like to cook so I figured it I had it all ready before hand that it would make it easier for me to stick to the detox. I think that is one of the biggest challenges for me is when I don’t have food easily accessible and I just want to grab that processed food that is quick and easy.

Overall though….

I feel absolutely amazing. I can totally tell a difference with my IBS symptoms. There are definitely still some problems like gas and upset stomach, but I have not been stuck in the bathroom at all since I started this detox.

I was in quite a bit of pain on day 3 when I had to coach my daughters soccer team, take the kids on an outing, and go grocery shopping. The pain wasn’t bad enough to need medicine though. I made it the whole day without taking medicine and without being laid up in bed the whole next day.

Day 4 I had the energy to get the house picked up and work on projects that I had put off for weeks because I was just too tired or in too much pain.

Like I said I have a ways to go but seeing that I don’t have to be stuck in the bathroom or living on pain medication really gives me hope. I am so excited to see how I feel after I am done with this challenge.
