Cleansing for Success


For many of us, life is like a race. Our daily routines and schedules are so packed full we never take time for ourselves to focus on health, wellness, and exercise. About 45 days ago I started a cleanse. This was not a traditional cleanse where you starve yourself and you drink fetid lemon cayenne water. The cleanse was composed of healthy shakes, organic foods (including fruits and vegetables) and emphasized portion control. I eliminated sugar, gluten, dairy, soy, and alcohol for 30 days. I was only hungry at mealtimes, was equipped to make healthy desserts, and never felt deprived. Not only did I loose 10 lbs, I gained mental clarity, calmness, and confidence in myself. This in turn has helped me be more efficient in working, accomplishing my goals, and being more relaxed when the storms of life hit me. Lets face it, you can’t avoid the bad news, stress, and disappointments of life; but how we react to them can alter and change our progress and growth. Take time for yourself and you will be surprised the difference it can make in your productivity.



If you would like more information about the cleanse, feel free to email me, I will be happy to share.

Cari after years of my doctors getting on me about adding exercise to my day I finally started walking a minimum of 5 miles per day.  Most days it is between 6-7 and I have taken off 25 lbs in 3 months just doing that.
