My Overall Cleanse Experience

  
Last week, specifically Tuesday-Thursday a friend of mine and I completed the Shakeology 3-day cleanse. We both wanted to do the cleanse for different reasons and we were both successful in the end!  

It was hard, I am not going to lie and tell you it was a piece of cake!  There were times when I was hungry, tired, dizzy, etc but I knew it was just my body getting rid of all the toxins that I unfortunately had exposed it to.  

My goal at the end of the cleanse was to rid my body of all the "junk" that had collected since my last cleanse and STOP my sweet tooth cravings!  My cravings had really gotten out of hand and I was starting to eat things I haven't eaten since before I started my journey with beachbody.  As I mentioned I met these goals and I lost 3 pounds.  I was NOT expecting to lose any weight at all but apparently I had a little more "junk" to get rid of than I knew.  My friend who did the cleanse with me had a goal to lose weight and to kick start her new clean eating lifestyle.  She lost 5 pounds and did an awesome job at staying on track with the cleanse.  She continues to make the right decisions when it comes to eating and soon plans on adding back in her daily workout.  

I had blogged about my three days (READ about Day 1, Day 2, Day 3) during the cleanse but I never talked about how I felt the day after the cleanse was over...

It was Friday and I was so darn excited that I had lost 3 more pounds and I had no thought of sweet temptations at all!  I was feeling a bit sluggish yet in the morning though. I thought to myself, where the heck is the energy I am suppose to get from doing the cleanse? Once I started to get back on track with my normal eating habits I was back in the swing of things. Full of energy and life and so proud of myself and my friend for completing the cleanse.

I spoke to my friend later in the day on Friday to find out how she was doing and feeling.  When she told me she lost 5 pounds I was jumping for joy!  I was so excited and proud of her.  It was hard for her too going through the cleanse but she made it through and reached her goal.  


WE BOTH DID IT!!!


Overall a GREAT Experience and I will be doing it again in another 3 months!
