If you've been following me for a while then you know I have done this cleanse before (click here for my previous reviews).
This time I had committed to doing it after a month or so of just not watching what I was eating as well and letting those carbs and sweets sneak back in more than I'd like them to. Plus, we had a weekend of fun with family in from out of town and lots of treats, drinks, fried foods, and ice cream cake! So needless to say when Monday came I was so ready for the refresh!
This is what a day on the refresh looks like:
*Chug 10 oz of water when wake up
*Shakeology mixed with water, ice and a fruit
*Fiber Sweep drink
*A lunch of vanilla refresh shake with fruit, a veggie and a healthy fat
*Veggie snack with a healthy fat
*Dinner of vanilla refresh shake and a veggie based "dinner." I use that word dinner loosely as it's not a huge meal or anything. There is a recipe book that you get and I've tried several of them and they are all yummy!
Super excited to get started on the refresh! Had way too many adult bevs over the weekend and am feeling it today!
Woke up and chugged my 8 oz of water. I am in the middle of doing Focus T25 with Shaun T (25 minute workouts) and today was scheduled to be Upper Focus. Yesss!!! I love arm day and using weights!
Got in a great workout, had my morning shake (vegan chocolate with 1/2 banana) and headed into work!
Around 11am is when I take the fiber sweep. You mix the fiber sweep in 8oz of cold water and CHUG IT. And I MEAN FAST. If you wait, the mixture turns into a weird jelly like texture. BLAH. If I drink it fast, I actually like the taste. It is kind of a lemon, orange, sand flavor (lolol)
Lunch was delicious!! Baby tomatoes with avacado!! YUM! Already excited to eat it again tomorrow!
And dinner was my favorite recipe from the 3 Day Refresh recipe book!
Woke up super sore from my workout. Like "is this normal?!!? sore. Weighed myself and am down 3.4 lbs!
Today was a scheduled T25 Speed 2.0 day. Cardio sounded good, I just knew I needed to modify. I still worked up a great sweat and was able to start my day!
Stayed on plan and on track during work. I highly recommend working while on the refresh! It makes the days go by so much faster!
Around 4pm I got very HUNGRY. I tried to just finish my green tea and see if that would tide me over but I just couldn't. I knew I was going to be stuck at work til 6/6:30, so I decided to "cheat" and have some more tomatoes and avocado. I was immediately happy with that decision.
I had my dinner around 6:30/7 but kept the vanilla refresh shake for my "desert" again for later after the kids were in bed.
Before I knew it this day was over and I hadn't logged at all how it was going! I do know I woke up feeling amazing, worked out and went to work! The work day went so fast and I was never hungry! It truly is amazing how little food we need to feel happy and satisfied.
Tried a new dinner recipe, the kale salad and it was delicious!! I never thought of cooking kale and putting lemon on it...think that will be added to my list of regular dinners too!
I ended up losing 5.6 lbs of fluff and feeling amazing! My head is SO CLEAR!! I am always amazed how little food we need to feel satisfied!! This time I was also reminded that if I am hungry, it isn't the end of the world! I will be ok. Hunger doesn't equal the end of the world.
The most exciting part of doing the 3 Day Refresh is that I have decided to work towards going all Vegan! To accomplish this I will be starting Beachbody's Ultimate Reset! It is a 21 Day "cleanse" that resets your body, eliminates toxins and gets you to a vegan diet!

I'd love to have others join me!
