Well…it’s official…I’m DONE with the cleanse!
Yesterday was day 3 and I changed things up a bit. My husband was off from work and wanted to go out for lunch so I had my salad and grilled protein then, instead of for dinner. I actually felt better doing it this way and had even more energy throughout the day than I did waiting until dinner time to finally have some real food.
My morning started off like usual. Glass of water, iced coffee (black of course) and a shake. Lunch was a grilled chicken fajita salad and water. I did indulge in some fresh chips and salsa, I have zero guilt about this as they are my favorite and it’s not everyday that I get to have them. Dinner was another shake as was dessert for the night.
I definitely slacked on my water intake yesterday and I think it showed on the scale this morning with only a 1 pound loss, although I have ZERO complaints about my results from this cleanse. I can honestly say my sweets cravings are almost gone, my impulse urges to eat have diminished and I don’t feel as bloated and gross as I did on Sunday after the holiday cookie/food binge that took place this year.
My final results are as follows:
I lost a total of 6.5 pounds, half an inch lost 2″ above the belly button, 3 inches lost at the belly button and 1 inch lost 2″ below the belly button for a total of 4.5 inches lost.
I plan on sticking with two shakes a day for the rest of the week and then settling in a new workout routine on Monday.
