3 Day Refresh: Results

It’s results day!  First, before I tell you about my results on the scale, lets kind of recap my experience talk about my non scale results over the last 3 days.

Prior to doing the refresh, I wasn’t eating super horrible, but I was starting to head down that path again and it wasn’t good.  I was having stomach aches every day and I was just feeling blah and yucky overall.  I didn’t have any energy during the day, and mentally I wasn’t happy because of the poor food choices I was making.  I could visibly see the bloating and my pants felt pretty tight.

By the second day of my refresh my stomach was feeling better, I had more energy and I was feeling lighter.  I have no desire for sugary carbs and I’m looking forward to continuing to put healthy foods into my body.  The bloating is gone and my pants fit again.  I have done this refresh 2 other times, but this time I feel even better at the end than the other two times.  I feel different mentally.  I feel like I’m taking care of my body by making better choices.
Ok enough of that… lets get down to results.  Are you ready?

I lost 6.6 pounds in 3 days and 3.5 inches overall!  Isn’t that awesome!  I just love this program and how great it has made me feel that the amazing jump start it gave me to getting back on track.

3 Day Refresh Results


3 Day Refresh Day 3

Last day of my refresh.  Today might be tough.  I’m also starting my new workout program and it’s a work day, which means a little more stress than the weekend.  But I can make it through.

tea and ninjaYesterday we got a new coffee machine and I don’t even get to try it out until Tuesday.  I’m a little bummed about that, but I will drink my tea and wait patiently.

After doing my 3 Day Refresh, I don’t want to go back to filling my body with crap.  I’ve decided I’m going to keep some of the grains out of my diet.  This week the only things I will be eating when it comes to grains is steal cut oatmeal, brown rice and corn tortillas.  I want to try to keep my diet gluten free for a while and see how my stomach does.  It seems like every since I turned 40 my stomach is so much more sensitive.  So I want to be as easy on it as I can.  I’m also keeping most of the dairy out, except my fair life milk (it’s lactose free), and maybe a little cheese depending on the meal, but the cheese will be limited.


3 Day Refresh Meal 9I had my normal tropical strawberry shakeology and grapefruit this morning for breakfast while I in a conference call.  Don’t mind my messy desk.  Haha.

My two older boys left to go camping for the night so they could see the Super Moon up close and away from the city lights.  So that means it’s just me for the rest of the day on my refresh.  My son and I both drank our fiber sweep drink and then he packed up his vanilla fresh shakes and stopped at the store to get some veggies to eat the rest of the day.  I can’t wait to hear if he stuck to it while he was camping.

I was a little worried about myself though without having the accountability of both my boys here.  I was afraid I would just throw in the towel and eat!  But I didn’t.  I honestly didn’t even feel that desire too eat anything that wasn’t on plan.

3 Day Refresh Meal 10



Oh my gosh… lunch!  I had apple slices with almond butter and cinnamon sprinkled on top.  #mindblown!  Have you tried that before?  If not, get up right now, got get an apple, some almond butter and cinnamon.  Don’t worry, I will wait…..  Ha!  Seriously though, super yummy.  I also finished off the cucumber salad and drank my shake.



3 Day Refresh Meal 11For my afternoon snack, I wasn’t super hungry again, but I knew that I needed to eat, so I cut up a pepper and some avocado.  That hit the spot.


3 Day Refresh Meal 12Dinner was simple too, I cut up two huge brussel sprouts and some baby carrots and steamed them and then tossed them in some coconut oil and I drank my shake.

Well that is my last meal!  I will have a cup of tea before bed again and then I’m done.  I can’t wait to weigh and measure tomorrow and see what my results are.
