Still Glowing With GliSODin

I survived the 14 day Detoxification with GliSODin Skin Nutrients!!! I wanted to follow their recommended eating guide so I cut alot of foods from my diet. And although I will continue eating healthy, it will be nice to add some of the “moderation” items back into a more frequent routine. A girl can only eat so much fish!!! I’m excited to now be able to eat more dairy (mmmm Greek Yogurt!!) and meat (Chicken breasts and hot sauce anyone?).

Now that my system is cleansed and ready for weight loss, I’m excited to start my second part of my journey!! I have much more to say about the Advanced Detoxification Formula (such as side effects, the best ways I found to make the shakes, how I switched up my eating routine to keep it fun, etc.) but you will have to wait until my big review at the end of the program!

Part two involves taking the Advanced Lymphatic Formula (twice a day, pill form) in combination with the Advanced Slimming Formula (once a day, shake form).
The pills are super easy to take. I mean grab some water and swallow. The hardest part is actually remembering to take them!! You only take the Advanced Lymphatic Formula for 15 days (60 caps, 4 per day). From GliSODin:

The Advanced Lymphatic Formula was designed to assist lymphatic drainage and reduce swelling caused by fluid retention in the body. Containing ingredients such as burdock and artichoke, this formulation has purification properties that help to eliminate toxins. Acting as a “mini-cleanse,” the Advanced Lymphatic Formula helps clear congestion from the circulatory and lymphatic systems and can also alleviate excess water weight.

I like to mix the Advanced Slimming Formula with a morning smoothie, multitasking – breakfast AND my skin nutrients all at once!! This product has a more chalky consistency (compared to the Advanced Detoxification Formula), which I find easiest to take when mixed with other ingredients. From GliSODin:

The Advanced Slimming Formula offers a complete system forhealthy weight loss and management. It is a safe and effective way to enhance the effects of body contouring technologies, and helps to maintain weight loss goals. Our unique system complements a healthy lifestyle, while providing beauty benefits such as an improved silhouette and a more toned physique.The Advanced Slimming Formula contains GliSODin®, which is clinically proven to neutralize the free radicals that cause oxidative stress in the body. Oxidative stress slows the body’s natural metabolism and immune system, which can lead to weight gain and metabolic syndrome.

Although I’m not getting any “body contouring” treatments, this program works to help boost anyone, man or woman, wanting to get in to shape! The Advanced Slimming Formula is to be taken once a day, for a minimum of 3 months (longer as needed) in combination with eating whole, nutrient rich foods. It is recommended that you do the Advanced Detoxification Formula first (as I did) to help make the most of the products!!

I’m seriously loving this program. It’s only been two weeks and I have already lost weight, I feel better on the inside, and I know I’m looking better on the outside!!

David’s Tea Does It Again!

David’s Tea knows just how to suck me right into their perfect virtual shopping world. They always offer great FREE gifts with purchase. And they aren’t tiny gifts, they are always something from their current stock (tea sets, tea pots, travel mugs, etc.) with a significant value. With Mother’s Day coming up, David’s Tea is offering a fabulous deal!! Free tea (with any $75 CAD purchase) AND free shipping on all orders when shopping online (until April 24th). If you feel like going in store, they are offering a free box of tea filters with any $40 CAD purchase (until May 10th). With deals this good you can’t help but get some things for yourself for mom.


Having trouble figuring out how to spend $75 CAD on tea?? Online, David’s Tea has some great “Web Specials” (aka clearance). This is a great way to get some amazing tea and accessories for a fraction of the cost. Here are a few of my top picks that are currently being offered:


Neon Pink Steeper
Retail: $30 CAD
Steal: $18 CAD

Love this steeper! Especially since I like my tea cold. It allows me to make iced tea easily and quickly if I’m in a hurry. Plus, it’s pink!!

Snowy Trees Stout Teapot
Retail: $25 CAD
Steal: $15 CAD

Snowy Trees Stout Teacups (set of two)
Retail: $8 CAD
Steal: $4.80 CAD

This teapot and teacup set is soooo cute. It might just be me, but I would (WILL!) use this year round. The print is simple and cute. You could save it for winter if you insisted, at this price it’s worth it!!

Green and Fruity Tea Sachet Tin
Retail: $9 CAD
Steal: $5.40 CAD

Sachet tea is perfect for on the go. Sometimes steeping loose leaf tea with an infuser can take time and effort. With these cute sachets you can truly have hassle free tea anytime, anywhere.

Santa’s Secret Tea Scented Candle
Retail: $19 CAD
Steal: $11.40 CAD

Now before you get appalled that I suggested getting a “Santa’s Secret” candle, keep in mind that they are tea scented! This one smells like mint. They have another one available “Forever Nuts” and that one smells like, you guessed it – nuts. The packaging itself is simply a mason jar, no Christmas themed container or anything season specific, besides the name. And these candles rock, they look great, smell great, and burn slow. I own a few already!!

Love David’s Tea. It’s probably my biggest non-beauty addiction!! ♡ Plus, I love FREE!!

Getting That GliSODin Glow

Summer is coming, which means it’s time to get working on that summer body (if you haven’t started already). For me that means taking care of my insides, as much as my outside. If you want to start eating clean and getting healthy, you don’t want to do it after months of binging on whatever your heart desired. All the toxins from the sugary, processed foods will stay in your body and stop you from reaching the results you want. The best way to start a program (whether that’s a lifestyle change or kicking it into high gear for summer) is to start with a clean slate. AKA a detox, a cleanse. Rid your body of all the bad so you can make the most of all the good.

I was fortunate enough to have GliSODin Skin Nutrients (GSN) contact me to document my journey using their program. About three years ago I started using their products. I started off with the Advanced Cleansing Formula (now called the Advanced Detoxification Formula), followed by their Advanced Slimming Formula. I took the supplements in addition to a lifestyle change of healthy diet and daily excersise. I was beyond pleased with the results, shedding around 50 lbs (University took a huge toll on my once fit, dancers body).

Fast forward 24 months and I have since hit some hurdles. I was in a car accident 18 months ago that left me with multiple back injuries (which I’m still in treatment for). My injuries, combined with extreme stress (I was recently diagnosed with PTSD and Depression due to the accident), has led me to eating my feelings, literally. The injuries make it hard for me to get my fat ass moving (and I mean that in the most self loving way possible, even when I was fit, I had my huge ass trailing behind me)!! All of my hard work was erased. I gained all of the weight back. Every pound. Enter the vicious cycle of hating the way I look, followed by disappointment that I let myself get back here, followed by more eating and more sitting.

That brings me back to GliSODin contacting me. I wanted to tell them about the amazing results I had, and about how good I HAD felt while on the program. Of course that was followed by a sheepish blurb about how I had since lost myself and was struggling to find “ME” again. I was beyond elated to know that they were willing to get me started on the program again and I offered, in return, to document my results, on my blog, for all of you!!!

The thing I love about GliSODin is that it is all natural. There are no harsh laxatives or chemicals used. You can read all about the science behind GliSODin HERE. I won’t go into the specifics but it is definitely worth the read!! This time around, I will be taking the Advanced Lymphatic Formula in addition to the Advanced Detoxification Formula and the Advanced Slimming Formula. GliSODin also offers skin brightening and anti aging formulas, but I haven’t tried either.

I’m a week into the two week detox of the Advanced Detoxification Formula. Unlike fad diets or cleanses, GliSODin does not limit you to only drinking their product and eating next to nothing. They simply encourage healthy eating and provide a suggested eating plan (check it out here). From GliSODin:

When participating in a cleansing program it is important to nourish your body with healthy foods and drink plenty of water to assist in the detoxification process. Although the Advanced Detoxification/Cleansing Formula will initiate toxin elimination on its own, it is recommended to follow a healthy eating plan. We recommend following a nutrient dense eating plan to support the Advanced Detoxification/Cleansing Formula to maximize your results.

I love that this program works with a healthy eating plan. If you are making a healthy living change, this makes it easy to incorporate the products into your lifestyle. The product themselves taste great, it really isn’t an issue to work the shakes (twice a day) into my routine. The program is used worldwide by plastic surgeons and dermatologists, so I have faith that the products work, that and the fact that I have already used them myself and know the amazing results first hand!

I will be updating my journey, as well as talking about my results, side effects, and thoughts on all of the mentioned products along the way, with a full review at the end of the program. I’m currently on the Advanced Detoxification Formula (as mentioned above), but once that’s over, I will be starting the Advanced Slimming Formula and Advanced Lymphatic Formula simultaneously.
