Clean 9 Detox - Day 2

So Rob is now on day 2 of his detox.

Shortly after blogging last night he fell asleep, I think it was around 8:30pm but obviously exhausted.

This morning he was up bright and early, and after his 'breakfast' he went out for a bike ride. Not much energy again today but the headache has completely disappeared which is good.

We were due to go out for a walk too but the heavens opened so didn't quite make it out of the door!

I am really impressed with how he has coped over the two toughest days of the detox. I measured his waist this morning and it is already smaller than yesterday so cannot wait to see the difference.

His lunch is prepared ready for tomorrow - and the fridge is full of greenery!

So far so good!

Clean 9 Detox - Day 1

Well Rob started his Clean 9 detox today.

He seemed less than impressed when I showed him what would be involved but he realises he needs to lose weight so this seemed the perfect place to start.
Being ever so slightly scheptical he doesn't believe that his will lose any weight or inches, I on the other hand believe he will lose upto haf a stone :-)

So today he has kept himself really busy and been out for a long bike ride, a walk and then a second walk to get him some skimmed milk!

I am staying out of his way whilst I eat and drink just so he doesn't feel too bad.

I have to say he has been very chipper so far today, we took all of his measurements yesterday and now have the 'before' pictures prepared for the end of the detox.

Appart from being a little sleepy today he has been very upbeat, he hasn't felt hungry and even mentioned feeling quite full after his shake at lunch time.

The Aloe drinking gel isn't going down too well though, he drinks 60ml each day anyway but this is quite a but different he is drinking more in one go and doing so more often than he would like!

This evening he has mentioned he has a head ache so is taking on more water. All in all though not too bad, lets see what tomorrow brings!

I will be keeping you posted over the next 9 days, the highs and lows and finishing off with the before and after pics!

Wonder Gel!

I have to share my favourite product ever with you. It is the Aloe Very Gelly, it comes in a tube but is pretty much the same as taking the gel direct from an Aloe Vera plant.

I used this product before I became a distributor, I have a pet rat who had a nasty lump on her neck that she kept scratching. We used to plaster this on and within a few days it was completely healed.

She loves eating it too and because it is natural and actually does her some good she has a little bit each morning as a treat!

Since becoming a distributor I have used it most recently on my burnt scalp, sunburn, dry skin, stinging nettles, cuts but the best bit was using it on my ulcer.
I used to suffer badly from them and was given some tablets to keep on the ulcers when they were really bad. These left scarring inside my mouth so I wasnt overly keen to continue, so when I got my latest one I stuck a load of the gel on and it worked wonders.

My cousin also used it on her daughters Chicken Pox and within 2 days they were gone!

This in my opinion is the best all round product and great for first aid kits, kids and pets. It lasts for ages and ages.

Its that time of year again where people are keen to shift a pound or two as they prepare to bare the flesh ready for the beach.

Forever Living has a great range of products to help aid weight loss and toning (watch this space for updates of Robs weight loss and how he gets on with the toning wraps).

One of the great ways to get yourself going is by doing the 9 day detox. It is hard work and not for people who easily give in, but the results are amazing.

This is a testemonial from someone who has used the detox:

I started Clean 9 on Saturday 5th May. I liked the idea that following the programme would cleanse my body of unnatural chemicals and I needed to lose weight and adopt a healthier eating lifestyle.

The first 2 days (Phase 1) were really difficult, the second day even more so. Drinking 120ml of Aloe Vera in one go was really challenging – I nearly threw up the first time (I drink Aloe Vera anyway, but had never drank so much in one go). On day 1 I started late so breakfast wasn’t until 1.30pm. By 4.00pm I was feeling tired and lethargic and hungry! I had my Forever Lite Ultra shake at this time (lunchtime). The shake tasted so delicious and was a welcome treat for my tastebuds! I didn’t do a lot on Saturday as I think my body was in shock. I thought about food a lot but resisted the temptation – I surprised myself – but I did wonder why I was doing this.

On day 2 I was lethargic, had a mild headache and felt lightheaded. Brushing my teeth with Aloebright toothgel was like an instant pick-me-up - it tastes great. All I could think about was food all day. I lay on the sofa as much as possible as I couldn’t do anything and I was feeling pretty crap but I had to summon the strength to cook Sunday’s roast dinner and it was torture – everyone tucking in except me. I looked at that roast chicken and it invited me to have a taste – this was around 5.00pm – I had a taste and it all went wrong after that...

Wracked with guilt, I decided to re-do another day of Phase 1 and stuck to it rigidly. Felt hungry but no headache or lethargy.

On day 3 I started Phase 2 which meant I could have a shake for breakfast and lunch and a proper meal for dinner (yay). First thing in the morning I weighed myself and had lost almost 2 lbs. I felt hungry between lunch and dinner because there is a big gap with no food to fill it. I drank water and did chores to take my mind off the hunger. I had my first bit of food for a couple of days and it was great, I couldn’t eat it quick enough and I savoured all the different tastes. Probably not the best thing to do but I’d really missed eating. I also found the Aloe blossom tea to be a lifesaver. I love that tea, it really makes me feel comfortable when I drink it.

Day 4, I still think about food a lot and my tummy rumbles a lot. I drink more water and have a slight headache but its great to be able to eat a meal of an evening.

Day 5, I feel lighter. I am hungry at times but drink more water.

Day 6, I forgot to weigh myself. I don’t feel so bothered about food today. I couldn’t resist so I ordered the Nutri-Lean programme as I want to keep going. I cannot bear the thought of doing all this good and then undoing it by going back to bad habits.

Day 7, Saturday 12th May. I weighed myself and I cannot believe it. I have lost 10lbs!!! What??? That certainly gives me a boost – even though I had a slip on Phase 1. I spoke to David who said that toxins and bacteria weigh heavier in the body so that is why the weightloss is so great. Unbelievable! I am so happy to have achieved such great results in such a short space of time.

Willpower, determination and commitment is what this programme demands. Its not for the faint-hearted or for those not serious about a kick-start to losing weight and cleansing their system. It really is difficult (Phase 1 is the hardest) but if you follow it, it will do what its supposed to do. And I’ve proved that even if go a little off course, you can still pull it back and get great results.

I have two days left on Phase 2 and I cant wait to weigh myself at the end to find out my total weight loss, and I look forward to starting Phase 3 with Nutri-Lean.

Lovely Avocado Face & Body Soap

As a houseold we never used to use solid soap for anything. It always went gunky and never lasted so we used shower gel and a separate face wash and shaving foam instead.

We have been using the same block of the Forever Living Avocado soap for over a month now on our faces and hands and it is only just coming to an end.

It smells gorgeous and leaves your face feeling really smooth after use, Rob uses it for shaving with instead of foam now too.

It is made with 100% pure avocado butter which moisturises and rejuvenates. It is also a rich souce of vitamins A, B, D and E!

For a 142g bar it costs £5.40 - Code: 284 available here

What a Headache!

Yesterday afternoon I had a terrible headache just before I was due to go to a birthday party. I absolutely hate taking tablets unless I absolutely have to so I decided to try something that one of my up line managers had mentioned a couple of weeks ago.

She mentioned that the Aloe Heat Lotion if applied to the temples on the side of your head can help headaches. I applied a little bit on each temple and within half an hour my headache had completely gone, I got to the party and was absolutely fine!

So that bottle is now in my handbag! It is also really good to help maintain healthy joints and muscles which makes it perfect for sports people. 

A tube costs £12.24 and is available here.
