The last few months I have really been trying to be more healthy and just being a happier and more well rounded individual. I started going to Bar Method religiously (4-5 times a week), got on a more scheduled meal plan (using Dream Dinners) but I just haven't been seeing the results I wanted to see! Don't get me wrong I'm not trying to lose 10lbs, and I admit I can see myself becoming more toned but I thought I would be seeing a lot more! This led me to think what is it that I'm not doing?? Well I guess I got the exercise part down but not the diet part. I still find myself snacking....eating fast food...eating whatever because I'm too lazy to cook. I mean it really is hard when you live with someone that eats like a MONSTER, yet never gain any weight. So I decided to make a lifestyle change!
I went to 2 places in West Hollywood today as the beginning of my lifestyle change.
This little place is super cute and the girl working at the front was so helpful. I told her my desire to change my lifestyle and wanted to do a juice cleanse to jump start my diet.
I got the 3 day juice cleanse. This was NOT CHEAP. At $260 for three days, I am really committing myself to this lifestyle change! The juices are freshly made every morning and delivered straight to your doorstep by 6am. You drink six bottles a day with a combination of teas and lots of water. That's it. No food, just juice. I tried some of the juice at the store and it was absolutely delicious. Not like that nasty wheat grass stuff at Jamba Juice.

I am really blessed to have a clear complexion and good skin. I rarely get a pimple and generally never have any problems with my skin. Besides being a little dry and sensitive to some products my skin is pretty much problem free. Well if it's not broken why fix it right?! Wrong. I know that although my skin may be perfect now it might not be the case in 10-20 years. I really want to maintain! Because once you age, your skin only goes downhill especially if you don't take care of it while it's at its best. I currently use the entire Chanel line, from face wash, toner, serum, moisturizer and eye cream, I use it all! While it works wonderfully, it is sadly ladened with chemicals. It smells wonderful, but that's because it is heavily perfumed. Hence why I went to Green Line Beauty.
The owner Stacey was super knowledgeable and helpful in recommending a skincare line for me. I ended up getting the skincare line from SIRCUIT. I got the x-trap (daily gentle face wash), molecular mist (hydrating moisture care), day care (protective day moisturizer), and cloud 9 (intensely protective moisture creme). I loved that Stacey did not pressure me to buy more products than I needed and told me to go back in a month and we can reevaluate my skin. She also talked to me about the blood type diet and it turns out I've been eating everything that isn't meant for me! I am a carnivore, but apparently blood type A people are suppose to be vegetarians. OOPS! Am I going to become a vegetarian? I think not. At least not anytime soon. But this definitely peaked my interest and I shall be going to pick up a copy of Eat Right 4 Your Type from the library later.
I was also talking to Stacey about how I'm interested in getting regular facials but have never had a facial experience where I don't leave looking like a red tomato. Well guess what! They offer facials there! Woohoo! She promised me their clients never leave with a red face and they only use the best all natural products. Apparently they have a whole slew of celebrity clientele, not that it matter but that's kinda cool. Their esthetician is Marissa Reich of Skinny Dip Skin, I will definitely be making an appointment with her!
That was a LONG POST! I will be updating regularly with reactions of my new skincare regiment and the juice cleanse! Now I'm off to the library and taking my babies to the doggy park!
Have a lovely Wednesday!
