30 Days to Healthy Living & Beyond

I need a restart, how about you?

I’m finally at a point where I am content with my body, but that doesn’t mean I don’t strive for continued improvement for my health and wellness. Many of you who know me personally know this… I started my health journey at a whopping 168 lbs, size 12+ (I’m only 5′ tall, so that’s no bueno) At one point during my journey, I was 108lbs at my lightest and in a size zero pant. How I got there wasn’t healthy physically or mentally and I still wasn’t happy, either. It took gaining some weight back to teach me that happiness is not found in a size. It also taught me that being thin doesn’t necessarily mean you’re healthy, and living a healthy lifestyle doesn’t necessarily make you thin.

Currently, I do not know what I weigh. I happen to think the scale is the devil and pretty much lead me down the wrong path when it came to my journey to health and happiness. I am now a size 4 pant. I am still so far from where i started and I’m proud of that. With a job that sometime demands long hours, my biggest challenge is maintaining a workout schedule. My nutrition isn’t bad, but it could be better.

As a person who lives by her checklists and calendar, I’m pretty disciplined when it comes to programs. But, finding the right program is key for me. I don’t want to starve myself, I don’t want to eat anything with crazy chemicals, and I don’t want to have to jump up and down like a maniac for an hour to workout. Been there, done that, and I’m over it. I want to be nurtured, that’s why I love Arbonne’s 30 Days to Healthy Living and Beyond. It gives you the push you need to restart. It’s a simple meal plan + 30 minutes of exercise a day. I can do that. You can do that.

What I love about it is that it’s simple and easy to maintain. It’s the restart that becomes a lifestyle change. No need to count calories, adjust points, or increase your workout time… you simply adjust your diet and fitness once and make the promise to yourself to continue.

Below, I have included a link to the downloadable PDF that gives more in depth information about the program and why it works so well.

I’m not about pushing products I don’t believe in. If something has my stamp of approval, I will promote it. The choice is yours. So don’t feel pressured! One of the things I want to point out is you can start your personal journey 3 ways:

1. Follow this plan 100%. Buy the supplements, adopt the meal plan, and workout 30 minutes a day.

2. Buy the protein powder only, adopt the meal plan, and workout 30 minutes a day.

3. Just adopt the meal plan and workout 30 minutes a day.

Also, good to know is that their products are vegan, non-gmo, and naturally derived. As someone who doesn’t eat land animals, I have to make sure I’m still getting my protein. A shake in the morning is my secret! Most protein powders on the market are full of chemicals and fillers. My advice? If you can’t pronounce most of this ingredients, it’s probably not worth putting it in your body. Not only do I appreciate the ingredient list in my Arbonne Chocolate Protein Powder, It tastes AMAZING.

    I’m the same as you,.. I was TINY when I was younger – but I didn’t feel good physically or mentally either. Now that I’m older and wiser I’ve finally found the link between diet/exercise and overall wellbeing. After being vegetarian now for 16 years – its’ definitely improved my health by cutting out meat too. Thanks for this useful guide. PS – your blog is beautiful!

    Congratulations on all you have accomplished with your health goals. You sound at peace with your weight now. I recently kick started my workout routine, possibly being motivated by spring (and a guy at the gym). It feels really good. I still need to work on some unhealthy foods in my diet. I have used some Arbonne products in the past, but am trying to do everything via whole foods now.

      That’s the best way to do it. I’m vegetarian, so a good quality protein powder is a necessity for me. This one happens to fit my lifestyle because it’s vegan and Non-gmo. Let our food be our medicine and our medicine be our food! <3

    I need a restart for sure! I am 23, 5’2, and I weigh 160lbs. I am not stressing much about my weight, but I know I eat super unhealthy!

    I love this read. So many valid points in getting your restart going. I do my best to exercise and eat healthy everyday. Often it is hard to get a routine going if you never had one to begin with. I love this.

    I definitely need a restart. Before having a baby I was so little and now I’m so not little. I’m not huge, even though I feel it. But not only that, but I feel sluggish and worse than I used to.

    Definitely I need restart! Although I’m eating quite healthy plus I’m gluten and dairy intolerant and I need to avoid a lot of products so veggies and fruits are welcome:D

    There really are so many factors that go into being happy. A size is definitely not the be all to end all.

    When I read that the ingredients are non-GMO, you instantly had my attention! That’s something we always look for when buying/trying new stuff! I also love that it’s only required to work out 30 mins a day – I think I can handle that!

    The meal plan does sound interesting. I am just not sure whether the working part of it is the meal, or the 30 minutes per day of working out. I wonder what they mean by that 30 minutes.

      30 minutes per day working out. It can be any type of workout. Even 30 minutes of brisk walking puts you in the fat burning zone.

    I think everyone needs a restart every now and then. I feel a good detox can help people feel better.
