3-Day Refresh – Day 1

3-day-refresh

So today begins my 3-Day Cleanse journey.

Upon waking you are to drink 8-10 ounces of water. Water fires up your metabolism, hydrates you, helps your body flush out toxins, gives your brain fuel, and may even make you eat less. Luckily for me, I’m always super thirsty in the morning. So drinking it is a snap!

014First meal of the day is Shakeology + a fruit option. The fruit option can be blended into your Shakeology. I added some frozen blackberries to my Tropical Shakeology.

 

 

 

 

A little later I had a 8 ounce up of green tea. The tea is optional, but considering I’ve had to give up coffee for 3 days, it’s almost a necessity.

015Mid-morning brings my first Fiber Sweep. Looks awful, doesn’t it? The taste isn’t too bad. Seems to have a hint of citrus to it. I won’t be craving it any time soon, but it’s drinkable.

 

 

 

 

It should be mentioned that each step is done an hour or more apart from each other.

 

020Lunch! This time consisted of a Vanilla Fresh shake, baby carrots, an apple and 2 tbsp of avocado (not pictured here as it was on route back from the grocery store via the helpful hubby).

I was pretty hungry at this point. Not starving, but hungry. This actually satisfied my hunger.

 

 

Afterwards I did Define: Lower Body from PiYo. I had plenty of energy to get through it.  Mid-afternoon snack consisted of cucumber and more avocado.

 

022Finally dinner! Another glass of Vanilla Fresh Shake and  a carrot-seaweed salad sans the seaweed from the dinner recipe of the book. Simple.

 

 

Finished off with a cup of peppermint tea for the day.

So my thoughts. I’m not hungry, per se, I do however feel like snacking which I  attribute to drinking most of my meals. No coffee is also a struggle for me. But it’s only 3 days right?

Onwards to day 2!
