3 Day Refresh - Day Three

Today was Day 3 of my 3 Day Refresh and I have to say that I feel pretty amazing! Being a person that really loves to eat, I actually thought that I was going to starve to death, but the shakes and the recipes really kept me on point! You really have to go into the 3 Day Refresh Program knowing that it will be different then your daily eating habits, unless you eat pretty clean, but even if you do, you have to adjust to the lower calorie intake especially if you have a very active lifestyle. I worked out the first two days, and decided to not do a workout on my third day. As I mentioned before in my day 1 and day 2 posts, working out is not required during this program. It is mainly focused on detoxifying your body, and helping you get a jump start on your nutrition. I used it mainly for the detox factor. The 3 Day Refresh is also a great way to naturally lose up to 5 pounds safely in only 3 days!

I will most likely be doing the 3 Day Refresh every quarter, and plan to do the Beachbody Ultimate Reset (a 21 Day Detox/Clean Eating Program) once a year.

So here goes! I woke up pretty early this morning, I guess because I've been drinking so much water! It's recommended that you drink a gallon of water every day during the 3 Day Refresh. I started my day with my 10 oz of AGUA - water =)!

And within an hour of waking up, I had a Vanilla Shakeology blended with 10 oz of filtered water, ice and a serving of fresh cut cantaloupe. I wasn't sure how this was going to taste, but I said what the heck, and it turned out pretty good!

After my tasty Vanilla/Cantaloupe Shakeology concoction, I waited about an hour before having my morning tea. Just like the past two days, I went with my Organic Green Tea (no sweetener), and I used my Dad's coffee mug. I might've went over an ounce or two because his mug is huge.

A little over an hour, it was time to take my last Fiber Sweep, I was pretty sad about that ;), at any rate, I felt accomplished! It's not just about getting fit on the outside, it's also about getting fit on the inside!

Almost two hours passes by because I was so busy coaching people online with my Beachbody Coaching Business, it was time for LUNCH!  I know what you're thinking because you're probably looking at the picture below and thinking that I am having some STARBUCKS =) Nope, I just used the cup to put my Vanilla Fresh Shake in there, "GOTCHA!!"  ha ha =). So I blended my Vanilla Fresh Shake with 10 oz of filtered water, ice, and a small banana. I also had a serving of Steamed Asparagus (because I had like a crap ton of them) and some Spinach Artichoke Hummus. It was delicious!

Stay away from Starbucks when your are doing the Refresh! =)

Lunch was pretty filling so I waited for another hour and a half, maybe two hours before having my afternoon snack. I ran some errands for a bit, and came back and had a medium red bell pepper sliced, with a side of healthy fat.....more hummus!

After my afternoon snack, I did a couple business video calls, talked to my lovely daughter on the phone and watched some TV with my Dad, all the while enjoying some Organic Green Tea.

About an hour and a half later, I started to prepare for dinner. I had my last Vanilla Fresh Shake, a Spinach Salad with tomatoes, cucumbers, lemon juice, extra virgin olive oil and sunflower seeds. I was actually stuffed lol. I think my stomach shrunk these past two days, because I had to wait a few minutes before finishing the last part of my dinner which was some Organic Vegetable Broth.

So as I am writing this blog post, I am sipping on my last Organic Green Tea beverage of the evening. It was a very relaxing day just hanging out with my parents, coaching my team online in my pajamas, and feeling blessed to be alive and healthy!

 My overall experience on the 3 Day Refresh was great! I definitely needed it, and I highly recommend it to anyone who is interested in getting a jump start into a fitness program, their nutrition, or just wants to lose up to 5 pounds pretty quick. You can also just use the program for the detox factor like did.

Final words, there is nothing better than investing in your health. Make sure that you take care of your body, because it's the only one you have =).
