On Monday I started the Advocare Herbal Cleanse. I do this 3-4 times a year. They recommend not more often than every 90 days. I love the cleanse! It gets me back on track. I eat a lot of food. But it's clean. No cookies, pretzels, cupcakes. . . And I was becoming a sugar monster!
The amount of *crap* I was stuffing in my mouth was shocking. I'd eat just because honestly. The stress doesn't help. Once I clean up my food choices, I feel so much better! Less fluffy - goodbye bloat! I have more energy and I sleep much better. I might be less moody too, but that's hard to judge cause my stress level impacts that quite a bit.
After 4 days of eating clean, I'm down 5.6 lbs!!! Today is day 5, so almost half way there.
(read the weights from the bottom up!)
I had let my weight creep up too high for comfort. My goal has always been to see 176 and I never quite make it. I get to 178 and start going back up. I'd like to finish the cleanse in the 170's . . . even 179.8 (my scale only weighs in even increments. . 179.9 isn't possible) would be ok! It would be a big boost to motivate me to keep my eating clean. Right now I'm rocking and rolling. I'm determined the weekend will be no different than this week. I like routine in my eating, so if I can maintain this routine and eat the snacks when I normally do I will be golden. . . I hope!
This week Advocare released a new spark flavor. . . .
I've had two so far and it's yummy. The flavor isn't as strong as I'd hoped. I like the strong flavors so I can add more water. . . but it's still really good. It will be high up on my list of favorites.
Have a great weekend!
