24 Day Challenge: Days 8 & 9
We are wrapping up the 10 Day Cleanse, which is the first part of the 24 Day Challenge. It is amazing what a change we feel in 10 shorts days. Well, 9 because tomorrow is the 10th day - results day! We feel great, we've lost weight, we've increased our energy, and we have rid our body of a bunch of built up toxins and are ready to move onto the max phase of the cleanse!
Here's are food, energy, exercise, etc. for the last couple of days.
