So with yesterday being a pretty busy day starting with picking out fixtures for my bathroom remodel, picking up a few last minute baking supplies for my cupcakes, baking more cupcakes than I’ve ever made before, and attending my daughter’s volleyball banquet I forgot to mention that I got my 3-Day Refresh in the mail.
I’m planning out my meals so that I can be successful on the 3 days and will be starting it tomorrow. I think that the hardest challenge will be the lack of coffee but I’ve been preparing for that by drinking half decaf in my morning cup so that I don’t experience an extreme decrease in my caffeine intake and get a headache. I will be having green tea, which does contain some caffeine, in it’s place.
Before we get to far, you may be asking what a 3-Day Refresh is.
The 3-Day Refresh is a program designed to help you kick start your health and nutrition efforts and help you make a break from your negative habits. For me this is important because I’ve been a bit off for a while and I need that extra push to get me going.
Check out this quick video about the Refresh:
What do you get in the pack:
During the 3-Day Refresh I’ll be enjoying 3 daily shakes, a fiber drink, fruits, veggies, healthy fats and plenty of water. All of this is designed to keep you full and keep your energy levels up and metabolism cranking. The kit contains Shakeology, Fiber Sweep, and Vanilla Fresh (a protein rich shake). It also comes with an easy to follow guide that gives you step by step instructions for completing the 3 days and if you have everything that you need, there is no way to mess this up.
For the next 3 days I will be completing the following:
Wake-up: Drink 8-12 oz of water
Breakfast: Shakeology + a fruit option
Mid-morning: Fiber Sweep
Lunch: Vanilla Fresh Shake + Fruit + Veggie + Healthy Fat
Afternoon Snack: Veggie + Healthy Fat
Dinner: Vanilla Fresh Shake + a meal from the dinner recipes + Organic veggie broth (optional)
You are encouraged to drink half your body weight, in ounces, of water every day to help with the increased fiber intake.
I will also be completing mild to moderate exercise during my refresh, nothing super strenuous.
I’m pretty excited about giving this a try and will be documenting my daily results here. Stay tuned!
