Day 3 is DONE! Whoot whoot!
I’ve got to say, Day 3 was the hardest for me. Now, I don’t know if it’s because I did it during a holiday weekend, or because I just don’t like to be restricted and follow a schedule of any kind, or because I was PMS-ing the whole time (Which I didn’t realize until I was finished, and it explains the headache I had on Day 2–sorry boys– TMI, I know.) but it was ROUGH towards the end of the day. Around dinner time I kept thinking, “What’s the big deal? I’ll just have this piece of dark chocolate. I’m practically done, anyway.” BUT, I DID NOT! I stuck it out and I finished strong and I can’t WAIT to share my results with you…. but that will be tomorrow’s episode! For now, here’s how Day 3 went….
So, I won’t bore you with the photos, but I followed the same plan as Day 1 and 2– Shakeology and fruit for breakfast, the Flush mid morning, then vegetables with a healthy fat for lunch along with more fruit and the Vanilla Refresh. Afternoon included a vegetable/healthy fat snack, and finally dinner. I have to say, I really like the dinner recipes. Here’s an example of one:
Stir Fry Vegetables! Dinner is the only meal you need to actually prepare and cook during the Refresh. There are recipes in the book for very simple and quick to make vegetable meals. Most of them are cooked with a healthy fat like EVOO, or my personal favorite, organic coconut oil. (LOVE that stuff!) Along with your dinner selection, you also have yet another Vanilla Refresh. (Again, this along with Shakeology is the source of your protein for 3 days.) You also have the option of having a cup or organic vegetable broth. I decided to have this on Days 2 and 3. I just heated it up in a big mug and drank it like tea after dinner, which, by the way, my 12 year old son thought was the weirdest thing EVER. He was like, “What are you DOING? You are just going to drink that like COFFEE from a MUG?” Yes. Yes, I am. I really liked it. I think I will actually continue to have some like that on occasion. (And he asked for his own mug o’broth on Day 3, so I guess he got over the weirdness!)
And speaking of my son, here is a little side bonus from doing the Refresh— he is totally digging the stir fried vegetables. He asked to try mine the first night and liked them so much I had to make extra so he could have them as well on Days 2 and 3! (Yes, I loved them so much I just made them all 3 nights!) On the last day he even said he was sad the Refresh was over because he would miss the stir fried vegetables! I told him I would for sure still make them for us. Kids eating vegetables without a problem? Thanks, Beachbody!
DONE! Tomorrow I will reveal my results and answers some questions some of you have been asking me, so stayed tuned for that! I can tell you I am feeling leaner and less bloated already. Can’t wait to share the results with you!
