Okay, so I'm being a little dramatic, but programs like the 3-Day Refresh and Ultimate Reset take the guesswork out of eating! It's much easier to stay on track when you don't have to worry about what you are eating and where it is coming from. That's why you meal plan! Before I did my grocery shopping, I planned my meals not only for the Refresh, but my entire week. Here's a look at what I planned for my first day AR (after Refresh):
Breakfast: 2 Eggs with broccoli
Snack 1: Shakeology and watermelon
Lunch: Whole wheat tortilla with hummus, spinach, tomatoes and tempeh
Snack 2: 1/2 apple and 6 almonds
Dinner: Brown rice topped with zucchini, pinto beans, salsa and avocado
The funny thing about meal planning is that life doesn't always care how you plan. My friend asked if we could go to breakfast at Snooze this morning so I had to improvise. I planned and eggs and broccoli, but this is what I ended up having:
Exercise - PiYo Sweat
Holy shit, this workout is called SWEAT for a reason! The puddle on my yoga mat at the end of the workout was proof of that! This has been the longest workout so far and it was NO joke. Again, this was not hard in the way that Focus T-25 is hard (like you can't breathe), but in a wow-I-didn't-know-my-body-could-move-that-way and a how-long-can-you-pulse-a-lunge-for hard. I am beginning to realize that the easier workouts are probably leading you up to these more intense, fast-moving workouts. I can't wait to see what some of the other workouts look like! Until then, I am definitely looking forward to sleeping in and my rest day tomorrow.
Finally, here is what you all have been waiting for: my 3-Day Refresh results! I want to remind you that this is just THREE days, and the point (for me) was to get back on track with a healthy diet. I accomplished exactly what I wanted and FEEL amazing!
Day 1 Stats: Day 3 Stats:
Weight: 114.2 Weight: 110.0

Hips: 35 1/2 Hips: 35

Final thoughts: I would absolutely do this again and would recommend it to anyone. This was the perfect way to "break the cycle of bad eating" that I so easily fall into because I love to eat out so much and do it without starving myself!
