Can't there be a coffee and candy cleanse??

it's all i can think about. i'm on day 2 of the advocare herbal cleanse. and i want chocolate. and caffeine. and refined sugar. uggghhh..

yes, please!

so,'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
3/4 banana
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.


  1. I'm ordering the 24day cleanse for hubs and I. Good luck! I hope we all have great rrsults

    1. You're more brave than I! I'm hoping I make it 10 days! Lol. Best of luck!!

  2. You can do this. Good for you on investing in Spark too! If you need any help please don't hesitate to ask!!

    1. Susan- I do have a question. I tried to comment on MLFC but my comments never showed up. Mama L keeps posting about missing peanut butter. I buy all natural (only ingredient is peanuts) so there is no added sugar. Should I not be eating it? Thoughts? Thanks!

  3. I did this 10 day clense and my results were... notta! I felt better but I am anxious to see your recipes, I know thats why my results didnt happen( it was my recipes and lack there of)!!! Good Luck and I TOTALLY feel you on the big pills!! I gag just looking at them!!! lol

    1. Any suggestions of what kind of stuff I should or shouldn't eat? I'm kind of just winging it but I have a feeling my results won't be super.

  4. Hey! I'm a new follower from Holly and I am the only blogger not doing the cleanse apparently! Lol!

    1. Welcome! Love Hollys blog!

      I'm usually not into things that limit what I can But I'm trying to get rid of these last 10 lbs. keep your fingers crossed for me! :)

  5. Good for you for sticking with the cleanse. You have much more willpower than I do. There is a girl who works at my gym who sells Advocare. She has been up my A trying to get me to try it. All of this talk lately is making me think that maybe I should jump on board.

  6. I'm thinking about buying the Spark too.....and glad to know that it tastes good! :)

    1. It's awesome! I look forward to it everyday!
