I have to confess. I have eaten a lot of junk food lately. When I say a lot, I don't really mean a few pieces of candy here or there. I mean regularly, I have not been eating my veggies (bad example for my kiddos there), I have not been drinking nearly enough water, and I definitely have been eating too many sweets lately (in the past week, I'm ashamed to admit, I have eaten 3 Cinnabon cinnamon rolls).
To remedy this, I have decided I am going to start working out regularly again and eating in a healthier fashion. I am having engagement photos taken in approximately 3 months, and I certainly don't want to be bloated due to poor diet or carrying extra weight from the summer in the photos. Last year, I was following the 21 Day Fix exercise and meal plan (I'll blog about this later, as I plan on following it again). I've decided to start that up again, but I think I need to kick it off with a cleanse or something to get out of the habit of eating so much junk and to hopefully start things off on the right foot. In comes the 3 Day Refresh.
The 3 Day Refresh is a Beachbody product. Am I a coach and trying to promote the product because I will make commission off of it? No. (Just a note, I have friends who are Beachbody coaches, and they promote the products because they work for them, not because of the commission). Do I know if this product will work for me? No. But, according to the testimonials it works. And according to some of my Facebook buddies, it works. So we will see. Worse comes to worse, there is a 30-day money back guarantee (minus s&h of course).
I plan on starting the 3 Day Refresh on Friday, then following it up with starting the 21 Day Fix on Monday. The 3 Day Refresh is basically three days of veggies, fruits and healthy fats with a fiber drink, a high protein shake and shakeology. The product guide recommends light to moderate exercise, so I probably will just continue with my normal weekend activities and not add any exercise into my regime until Monday when I've complete the cleanse.
I plan on sharing my experience with this product, so you can share in my possible hunger pains - as well as to hold myself accountable to the plan and to share whether or not the 3 Day Refresh even worked for me.
So let's do this.
