Stepping it Up to All-Around, Inside and Out Health

Posted By on Sep 22, 2019 in Age and fitness, General Health, Nutrition | 0 comments


It’s been awhile since we posted a blog, or actually, anything.  Life, as we all know, gets super busy. We fall into our routines and although we are being productive and staying active, especially those who stick to an exercise program and clean eating on top of the daily grind, we still hit plateaus in the “busy”.

 

I, the “Colonel” who led a battalion of 1100 Marines, who is now the Executive Director of an Intelligence Training Program for the Department of Homeland Security’s 20 plus separate agencies, to include ICE, Coast Guard, etc.., have hit a plateau in how I care for myself on the outside as well as on the inside. I’m 55 and consider myself to be in pretty good overall health. I have made it a lifestyle to incorporate exercise in my life at least 3 times a week, for over 30 years. I eat pretty clean and get enough sleep. As for skincare, I am squared away, squeaky clean! I have been, for over 30 years, your basic, dove soap, head and shoulders, barbasol using man. I have never been one to put much stock in skincare products. I have always believed that is women’s territory and that a man with his feet solidly on the ground should not engage in such vanity as to exert much time, money, and energy on multiple skin care products.

I mention all of this, not to be arrogant or cocky, but to acknowledge, mostly to myself, as busy as I am, as trained as I am in routine, discipline and focus, I had hit a plateau in my day to day workout, eating habits, and, believe it or not, skincare!

Other than my move from Ivory Soap to Dove Soap 10 years ago, I have left skin creams, aftershave, etc. to men more preoccupied with their face and skin. Then, one day, two months ago, my girlfriend, Kelly O’Brien Walsh, who is an Arbonne independent consultant, made me a proposition. She presented me with Arbonne products (Shave Cream, After Shave Soothing Lotion, and the RE9 Advanced Men Set) and said, “Honey, do me a favor and use these products every day for 30 days. At the end of 30 days, if you’re done, I won’t say a word.” To humor her, I shrugged, went along and consented. The 30 days have come and gone, and at 60 days, I am running out of some of the products. I want more. I need more. My face feels like I am 20 years younger and I simply feel refreshed and squared away when I use those products. While I have vastly underestimated the way I would feel when using Arbonne products, I also can unabashedly admit, that I also like the way I look. And people notice. My 12-year old son asked, “Dad, why is your skin looking so dewy and bright?” And when I mentioned I was 54 to a 36-year old colleague, he asked, “You’re 54?! I want to know what moisture cream you’re using!” He meant it more as a joke, but I didn’t hesitate to reply, “Arbonne!” And now Kelly has me trying the Nutrition Line!

I mention all of this, not to be arrogant or cocky, but to acknowledge, mostly to myself, as busy as I am, as trained as I am in routine, discipline and focus, I had hit a plateau in my day to day workout, eating habits, and, believe it or not, skincare!

20 years ago I’d never ever consider using “skincare”! Heck a year ago, thoughts of caring for my skin never entered my mind. I was clean and that was good enough for me! Little did I know the difference it makes, not just in the way I look but the way I feel.  Because of this little shake up in my day to day, using safe and beneficial products for health wellness and skincare, I have decided and am proud to announce CFP has partnered with Arbonne!

The entire line can be viewed, purchased and discovered right here at BrianSulc@Arbonne.com

And trust me, I am as skeptical as they come when it comes to anything outside my comfort zone, especially when my hard earned money is concerned. Remember, I have five kids to put through college, so spending on new products was not at the top of my list. After research, using the products as I mentioned before, and minimizing what I really needed, I realized, we ALL spend money on shampoo, soaps, nutritional products, etc. AND I wasn’t paying attention to what I was putting in my body as well as on my skin. Arbonne, is pure, safe, and beneficial!
