Happy Birthday to one of my fitness heroes, Bob Harper!! Bob turns the big 50 today which means nothing nowadays. I am so honored I got to meet Bob Harper a few years ago. He still keeps me going with his workouts and books.
Happy Birthday, Bob!!!
I believe the cleanse paid off! I lost 8.5 lbs in one week. I am thrilled. I did not do this cleanse because I wanted to lose weight in one week though. I did this cleanse to jump start my system and stop my cravings.
Yesterday I was allowed vegetables and fruit juice. The thing is I do not agree with fruit juice. Why? Fruit juice is full of sugar. Sugar makes you bloated and contain water weight. I tried to stay away from sugar during my cleanse.
So instead of fruit juice I only had fruit for breakfast. I had veggies the rest of the day. I even went out with my boyfriend Brian to Salad Works and created my own. I did not eat it with dressing which was odd but I did it.
I have to be honest I am glad this is over. I am craving crabs and protein. I could never be a vegetarian. All power to you guys if you are. Granted I had no carbs this week either so maybe that would make things easier. I am just happy I can eat carbs and protein again. I do not seem to crave sugary things like dessert. We shall see what happens.
I am posting this because I noticed I posted a different one earlier. If you want to try what I did this is the program I followed. The other one had a lot of chicken and turkey and I felt that was not a great cleanse for me. So if you have any questions hit me up with a comment.
This was NOT easy and it took a lot of will power. Also if you have illnesses or other things talk to your doctor first. This program is a lot on you. I felt myself being tired ALOT during this program because I had no protein in my body. So I suggest if you have to take medication or you have other things speak to a professional first. Do not listen to this twenty something girl from New Jersey.
Now..excuse me while I devour this delicious English muffin filled with turkey bacon, egg, and cheese. Six points on Weight Watchers. Notice the blue berries..I am still eating my fruits even though I may turn into one after this week. =)
Yesterday was weird on the cleanse just like Tuesday. Yesterday I was allowed to consume a cup of rice and six tomatoes. After every tomatoe I had to drink a glass of water due to the acid.
I thought this was weird and this was more restrictive then Tuesday. I thought I was going to fail at this but I was surprised. I did not feel really hungry yesterday except the end of my shift at work. Other then that I was satisfied through out the day. Drinking the water after my tomatoe filled me up and I did not have weird cravings.
I am having cravings of meat though. The GM version I am doing does not allow any meat. I am craving it like crazy. The last meat product I ate was maybe chicken a week ago? I had crab on Friday but I do not count fish. I am going to a BBQ on Saturday and I can not wait to eat meat..That is weird to look forward to. Not my family or spending the time with them..I want to eat meat. This diet is weird..
I love the app Timehop. When I am down and feeling low I always look at this app. This app always shows how much I have accomplished. Not just weight loss but everything. Like fashion sense or a freakin hair style that did not hide my face. It is also cool to look at the app and go..”Oh! I did that this many years ago?!”
If you do not have the app I really recommend you get it. It is free and I look at it everyday.
Yesterday was fine. It was better then day two. I got to eat fruit and vegetables together which was nice to switch off to different things. I did notice that yesterday was the first time I wanted to devour something and I had weird cravings like cheese. At work they had cup cakes and asked me if I wanted to order lunch but I did not give in. I had a goal today and I stuck to it.
Yesterday I found if I did not keep drinking water I was exhausted. So I kept hydrated during the day. I did not get head aches or anything like day two. I feel day three went okay. I was not jumping for joy eating all the fruits and veggies again but I am nothing somethings…
It is “cleaning out my system..if you know what I mean…
My stomach does not feel bloated and I do feel lighter.
I am noticing my skin is clearing. I have psoriasis and it is clearing on my knees and hip since the cleanse.
I actually love water and I am drinking it more. I usually never drink water and I feel this cleanse is helping me.
Today may be weird. I have to eat bananas, milk, and yogurt. I can not eat bananas for I have a oral allergic reaction so I am eating avocados. I was excited to drink a glass of milk. We shall see how the rest of this day goes…
Yesterday was rough! The first day and yesterday morning went so well during my cleanse. I was happy and feeling great. Then 2-3pm yesterday hit and everything changed. I was moody, I had headaches, and my stomach was hungry. It seemed no matter how many vegetables I shoved into my face I could not statisfy my hunger.
For some reason the veggies were not doing anything for me. I also felt like I was going through some kind of with draw. Many from all the sugar and crap I had been eating? Maybe my body needed more crabs..I have no idea. Yesterday was rough and from what I read day two is the hardest out of all the days. Were they right!
I did not cheat once yesterday. I was very tempted to forget and have a turkey burger or eat the bag of chips. I did not!
