3 Day Refresh Day 1 Review

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 refreshhave 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.15356099_10206363784288413_2022362648_n

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.
