3-Day Refresh Day 3

I am extremely please with the results of my 3-Day Refresh! I wasn’t sure how this was going to go or really what to expect when I first decided to purchase this program. All I knew Tummy measure day 3 - Resizedwas I needed a JUMP START to get back on track!!! Thanksgiving came along with turkey & pumpkin pie. The next thing I knew I was saying Merry Christmas to some very bad habits that were taking me further from my goals than I wanted to be.

 

I am happy to report this cleanse is EXACTLY what I needed to clean out the sugar, toxins & cravings. It’s the end of day 33 Day Refresh - Transformation & true to it’s name…… I feel refreshed. More so than the outside results I got is how I FEEL! I lead a busy life & I need to be able to multi task & juggle many things at one time.  When your brain is in a fog & you feel sluggish all the time it’s difficult to perform at an optimal level.  The greatest thing I got out of this was returning to a high level of clarity, mentally.

I haven’t craved anything sweet today AT ALL! I am thankful for that. I have BIG GOALS in the new year so I needed a fresh start to get me back on track. That is exactly what I got.

I am excited to start the next phase & maintain my result going forward. I plan to drink Shakeology once a day everyday & training hard in the New Year.Tummy Results

What to eat on Day four…… Don’t go right back into old habits. This was your FRESH START! Eat as many fruits, veggies & whole foods as possible in order to maintain your results. This is the perfect opportunity to make the change & keep the healthy habit in place. This morning I had poached eggs over asparagus. Light, fresh & tasty. My body is thanking me for it!

3-Day Refresh Day 2

DAY TWO is COMPLETE & I couldn’t be more excited with the results. I am already down about one inch in my waist! HOW AMAZING is that?!?!?! I was a little nauseas in theTummy measure day 2 - Resized morning…. Until um well…. Let’s just say my tummy needed to be cleaned out. There was no big explosion & I didn’t get sick. It was just a normal every day occurrence. After that I started to feel amazing the rest of the day. There is no uncomfortable running to the bathroom with this cleanse. Except for the excess of water I have been drinking. That’s cause for a few more trips to the little girls room. I still didn’t have as much energy as I usually do but the brain fog & leathery lifted. I can think again & multi task. Something that had come to a complete halt for the last two months. I feel light & refreshed. My body doesn’t seem so heavy & sluggish. I am also not moody! I seem to be a lot less irritated which makes everyone happy. I can only imagine how I will feel tomorrow morning.

 

My craving where even less in day two. Every once in a while I would want the taste of something. ….. like Oreo cookies. ….. but I would quickly remember, nope that’s exactly what I’m cleaning out. It has been a very busy two days for me, so i think that keeping myself occupied helped in not craving.Kale Dinner - Resized

3-Day Refresh *** MUST READ ***

I have completed day one of my 3 Day Refresh & wanted to keep you up to date with how it’s going. My objective here is to give you honest feedback so you can decided for yourself if this is something that will help you on your journey in life. Some would say because I am a representative of the product that my opinion could never be unbiased because I stand to make a commission. I do make a commission if you purchase my products but if I recommend a product to you that isn’t in line with what you are trying to accomplish then you are going to miss the mark & I would be a part of your demise. My ultimate goal is not to make money off of you……. But to help you reach your goals! Everyone must make a living & I choose to make mine by pushing people to lead a fruitful life instead of just exist. I stand to gain more by helping you succeed than just making a one time sale. So here it goes…… my attempt at an unbiased opinion on the 3 Day Refresh.

Meal Prep - Resized 3 Day refresh - Resized

Day one was a bit of a struggle. I am just coming off the holiday season where I pretty much ate whatever I wanted. Even though it was in moderation the sugar doesn’t care. Once it’s in your system your body wants you to feed it more! These cravings where not overwhelming just more of a nagging. The way the refresh is set up you have something every few hours. So that helps to keep you busy & full. I usually eat 6 meals a day between 1500 – 1800 calories. I am not a big calorie counter but I do know what I need to keep my energy levels high. I did not have as much energy as I normally do. I was in no way famished or lethargic. I was just a little slower than normal.

Towards the end of the day I got a mild head ache. Which I can only imagine came from the lack of sugar & gluten. In the past when I come off these things my body detox is harsh! I feel tired, heavy & my body aches badly. So to only experience a mild head ache was refreshing! (Pun intended!!!) I am a feel type of person. I go off how something makes me feel. In the end that’s really all I care about. Did it do it’s job & how did it affect my daily life.

I woke up this morning to a flatter tummy. Which I was a bit surprised that it would work that fast. I know this is not fat but inflammation in the stomach from all the sludge. Still loosing inches is loosing inches.

Carrots -  - Resized Asparagus - ResizedI did not give up my coffee, but I did give up the milk & honey I normally use. I just mix my coffee in with my morning chocolate shake! YUMMY!!!! & I still get my caffeine. While we are talking taste. The shakeology mixed with just water or in my case coffee & ice does taste very different than when I normally mix it with coconut milk. It does taste earthy but it’s not overpowering where I couldn’t get it down. The vanilla refresh shakes & the fiber sweep are the same. It’s not a treat I would reach for but to clean out my system & kill cravings it is defiantly a sacrifice I can make for three days!

I will give you an update each day. This initial one has been quite detailed so a bit long. Tomorrow I will try to keep it short & sweet. For those of you who are a bit more technical I have listed my calorie intake below.
