so, basically...you're supposed to eat clean. limit caffeine, refined sugar, dairy and carbs. whole grain carbs are ok. doesn't sound very difficult...but it's going to be a long 10 days.
there is a fiber drink in the morning of the first and last couple of days. i read lots online about how horrible it tastes. i don't think the taste is that bad. the texture on the other hand- WOOF! i just choke it down and move on with my day. There are also pills to take in the evening. they're huge.
Three parts of the cleanse and when to take them.
i hate big pills. hate.
i miss my coffee in the morning. and of course, because i can't have junk, i want it.
Day 1: pretty uneventful. i spent most of the day trying to get my head in the game. also, Avery and i went grocery shopping. it was torture. never go grocery shopping when you can't have most of what's in the store. ps. i also miss cheese. i weighed myself in the morning on day 1. forget to measure- i'll do that tomorrow.
Day 1 meals:
oatmeal with 1 tbsp pb
carrots and a small apple
big ass salad with chicken
pumpkin seeds & spark
taco salad (no shell)
Day 2: going well until this evening...i'm not feeling that hot this evening. not sure if it's related or not. i will admit, there's plenty to eat. it's more a mind over matter thing at this point. i get so accustomed to my habits..certain meals, etc. so now that my routine is changed up a bit, i'm out of whack.
Day 2 meals:
oatmeal with 1 tbsp pb and 1 tbsp flax seed
chicken (2 servings) & tomato slices
animal crackers *rule breaker, whoops* & spark
turkey burger (no bun), broccoli & homemade baked sweet potato fries
i did invest in spark, advocare's energy drink. i bought the mango strawberry flavor and man is it delicious! it's probably something that i'll continue to drink once this is over.
wish me luck- i'll keep you updated.
