I am so glad I’m doing this because so far it is easy peasy! It is the end of day one, I just took a bubble bath, I’m drinking a little more water and then I’m heading to bed.
Since it’s just after Memorial Day Weekend, it’s the perfect time to detox from the fun weekend. I didn’t go all out by any means but I did have more than one cheat meal! I went to the grocery store and got everything I needed which was all fruits and veggies and 3 gallons of filtered water. I wanted to get the gallons of water to ensure I was drinking enough every day. I’m drinking one a day and that should really assist in flushing out my system. In the refresh pamphlet there are some great recipes and food lists that you can pick from to prepare for the 3 days.
This morning I woke up, checked my email in bed, and then immediately made my shakeology before I got ready for the rest of the day. I added a half of banana, water, and ice to it and it tasted great. I had been drinking unsweetened almond milk with it and I honestly didn’t notice much of a difference in taste.
An hour later I had the fiber sweep which wasn’t as bad as I thought it was going to be. I put it in cold water and squeezed some fresh lemon in it, and shook it until it was all nice and blended. There were a couple of clumps at the bottom which didn’t go down as smoothly, but all in all not that bad!
For Lunch I had my vanilla fresh and added raspberries to it. I also had a cucumbers and hummus for my veggie and healthy fat. It was filling and I didn’t feel like I was missing out at all
Dinner was probably the hardest because I made dinner for my boyfriend. We had yummy, healthy chicken sitting in the crock pot all day. This is normally a go to meal for me because it’s so easy. I usually make him a starch and then add a veggie. Since roasted asparagus was in the recipe book I made that for his and my veggie tonight. They were sooooo good!!!
I had to pass up the chicken and the mashed potatoes and I knew it was going to be hard, so I did the 21 day extreme upper fix workout. This made having another vanilla fresh shake soooo much easier. As an fyi, I really love the extreme workouts so far. I feel like I needed to change up my routine and my muscles are thanking me because I’m working them in a different way. That’s another reason I love beachbody. There are so many different programs to choose from so nothing ever gets old…except for maybe this vanilla fresh. I kid, I kid!!! hahaha
On to day 2!
