3 Day Refresh Coming up August 10

3 Day Refresh

What is the 3-Day Refresh? The 3-Day Refresh is 3-day program of specially formulated shakes, healthy snacks, and delicious, easy-to-prepare meals that may help you lose weight while cleansing your body of toxins from unhealthy food habits.

How is the 3-Day Refresh different from other cleanses? Unlike juice fasts or liquid cleanses that are high in sugar and low in protein (which can leave you feeling weak and sluggish), the 3-Day Refresh is scientifically designed to help support your metabolism while nourishing. Plus, you actually get to eat delicious, real food during this program.

Salad & Shakeo

Why Refresh?

  • You are looking for a clean break from a period of unhealthy eating.
  • You used to eat pretty well but have recently fallen off the wagon and need some help getting back on.
  • You want to jump-start healthy eating habits for a new workout program.
  • You’ve never been a healthy eater, but are ready to kick-start better nutrition for the first time. •
  • You want your clothes to fit better.

Last time my husband and I did this we did it on the weekend…this time we are going to try a Monday to Wednesday…What do you say…will you come and join us? 🙂

Results from 3 Day Refresh

Finished the 3 day refresh on Monday night… weighed in and did measurements first thing on Tuesday.

I had a loss of 4.6 pounds and 4 inches…🏆I only took measurements on my belly bump scar, belly button and hips.

Overall I didn’t find it too hard… First day I had a bit of a headache…Of course I wanted my munchies and carbs…steak but it was only for 3 days so I knew I could have that in no time.  I have to say the only thing is I don’t think I would do this on a weekend next time… Just because you are out doing stuff and you might get a bit weak from the change of diet… Plus if you want to socialize it would be a bit hard… Especially if you get the hangries…

Side effects I had were head ache and some gas:o…also we ate pretty much the same meals  and didn’t workout just walked around 10,000 steps daily.

Next one is in about 3 months. ..I told Brian it wasgoing to be Labor Day weekend he promptly told me off….lol😂

3 Refresh Day 2 here I Come

3 Day Refresh

On Day 1 I have to say I was impressed on how I didn’t get very hangry… There were times I got hungry once before lunch… And then before bed but I stayed up close to two hours longer than I normally do.

Lunch I found was the most filling…salad, berries and a the vanilla fresh shake.

At bedtime I found I had a headache… And woke up with one but had a few sips of coffee and it is gone so maybe it was caffeine withdrawal.

Day 1 – I lost 2.8 lbs around 1.5″ of my belly area.

3 Day Refresh – Day 1

Today I begin the 3 Day Refresh.  I am nervous and excited to see what results it will bring…especially after eating out at restaurants all last week.

Breakfast was Vegan Tropical Strawberry Shakeology and some cantaloupe; now off to have a green tea

Working Out on the Road

I am just back from a week-long work trip to two of our offices on the west coast…

I managed to do my PiYo every day using my Beachbody on Demand Club membership to access my purchased Beachbody workouts and just steamed them from my laptop.  I still got up around 5 am sometimes early…the time change for me was -4 hrs so it was a bit hard to adjust too

Calgary Skytower…great view to workout too

Working out in my room in Vancouver…tight fit but it worked 🙂

I did have my chocolate Shakeolgoy 4 out of the 6 days on the road…I do notice that when I don’t drink it I pick at food and nothing seems to really satisfy my hunger…so this is a good thing for when I drink it I don’t want to eat all through the day.

Now food is where I didn’t fare so well…seemed like the restaurants I went to were full of carbs…had some sushi and noodle bowls and plenty of oysters.  With my supper meals I would have an alcoholic beverage 🍷🍹 two at the most. This is a huge improvement of my past where I would sit back and drink just because…but since working out the past year I find I don’t tend do that any more :mrgreen:

Every day I also got at least 10000 steps.walking to the offices or out to supper at night…I enjoyed going out rain (I took my wet-skin rain-suit with me)  or shine just nice to be outside enjoying the sunshine and the very few flowers that i found.

Now that I am back home it will be great to get back into routine and follow 21 Day Fix meal plan; but first I am doing the 3 Day Refresh to cleanse out the toxins I had over the past week and get down to my target weight around 115 lbs…while I was away I gained 3.6 lbs…crazy!
