Yesterday was the beginning of a 3 day journey for me. With my surgery coming up I admit that I have been worrying about losing the progress that I have fought so hard for. I mean, with having hypothyroid it is hard enough to lose weight and get toned up, so this is just one extra part that I wasn’t counting on this winter. I figured if I wasn’t going to be able to work out without a lot of modifications then I would at least make sure my eating was on point.
The 3 Day Refresh is a great way to kick start a healthier lifestyle. To make a clean break from bad eating habits. This isn’t a starvation or an all liquid fast. It is low on calories, about 900 a day. It is packed with protein and giver, so while I will be nourishing my body I will not be going hungry. 🙂 So how does it work?
Here is what my day looked like.
I woke up at 2 am and drank 12 ounces of water to get my system going. I didn’t wake up that early for this refresh, I had to be at work by 4am so it was a very early start for me.
I ate breakfast at 3am. My breakfast yesterday was a cafe latte shakeology and a banana.
I had a cup of green tea at 4:30 with stevia. I usually have a coffee so this was a little different for me. I really missed my pumpkin coffee.
At 7:30 I drank some water and I was supposed to drink a fiber sweep drink. Unfortunately I had no idea what I did with it so I just drank another cafe latte shakeology.
Lunch was around 11:30. I had a Vanilla Fresh shake, a banana and a cucumber with a little bit of avocado.
When I got home from work I had a pumpkin chai tea which was delicious.
My husband didn’t realize that I had started a 3 day refresh today so he had cooked me some supper. I had steamed broccoli but I also had a few bites of deer tenderloin. He got his deer on Thanksgiving and had been waiting to eat the tenderloin. I felt bad with telling him I couldn’t eat it so I had a few bites.
I fell asleep shortly after. Between always being tired from my thyroid and getting up at 2am, I was exhausted. My first day wasn’t exactly what it should have been. In all honesty I shouldn’t have had the deer tenderloin and I really meant to workout. But I can admit that I did not feel hungry all day and I also didn’t have any cravings.
I woke up this morning with a slight headache but I feel pretty good otherwise. The scale says I have lost 1.8 lbs already. This isn’t all about the weight loss but that is definitely a help too. 🙂 I have today off and all of my meals are already planned. I am also planning on doing a Core De Force workout today too.
