A Fat Kid's Honest Review About the 3 Day Refresh: Day 2

Day 2 is just about done. Suffice it to say... It was a bit more rough than day 1. I felt pretty good after yesterday so I figured today would be just as easy.

Eeeehhhhhhh..... 

Don't get me wrong- I was super chipper before I drank the Fiber Sweep this morning. See? I took a picture for you guys!

Told you it looks disgusting. Thankfully it doesn't taste like it looks
Here is today's lowdown:
  • 8am: ~10 oz. water
  • 9am: Cafe latte shakeo with 1/2 banana, cinnamon, 1.25 c. water, ice
  • 10am: Fiber Sweep
  • 11:30am: Green tea (I ended up sipping this over the next couple of hours just because of my schedule)
  • 12:30pm: Vanilla Fresh shake with vanilla extract, cinnamon, 1.25 c. water, and ice, 1/2 banana, spinach/strawberry/avocado salad with vinaigrette. (My shake was so gross today, you guys. So gross.)
  • 4:45pm: 1 c. veggie broth with chopped up herbs (I was desperate for food and made this really quick. More on that below)
  • 6pm: Vanilla Fresh shake blended with ice, 1.25 c. water, coconut extract (GOD ALMIGHTY WHY DID TODAY'S SHAKES TASTE LIKE CORN?!), coconut steamed veggies (cauliflower, broccoli, green beans, smidgen of coconut oil). 
So today was different from yesterday in that my schedule was a bit "off." I went to a LuLaRoe show today which took up a good chunk of my afternoon, so I didn't drink enough water during the day. By the time I was heading home, I had a massive headache and was starving.

Important life tip: make sure to space out your food during the day! I didn't eat an afternoon snack like yesterday, and I didn't drink enough water, so combine the 2 and it was baaaaddd. I feel fine now since I've been drinking more water and had a proper dinner.

Though, I'm not sure what's going on, but my Vanilla Refresh shakes have tasted like corn today. They were awful. Yesterday was fine, nothing special, but today's were just bad. They seriously had a weird corn after taste. 

I promised you an honest review, and you're getting an honest review. =P 

Tomorrow's my last day, so fingers crossed it goes well. I lost 2 lbs yesterday, so that's pretty sweet! 

OH! Here's my dinner from last night. I took a picture and forgot to show you all yesterday. :D 

Wish me luck for tomorrow!

  1. Is it weird that I don't find the corn aftertaste unappetizing? To each his own, I suppose. I think I have found the right routine for me.

Shame Eating

I found the above image on the interwebs and it always makes me laugh. All.the.time. It's kinda true though, right? IF you've ever had any kind of food addiction then you know the sweet sweet embrace of "one more" handful of kettle corn (ahem), or "one more" piece of bread, or whatever . I was joking with my co-worker that I might as well be shame eating out of the Costco-sized bag of Kettle corn on my counter in the dark, licking the sweet and salty remnants off my fingers. That I can't be trusted alone with it. That I grab a bigger-than-small bowl and PILE it up, lamenting the few rogue pieces that make it to the floor. Another colleague overheard us and said she used to do that with angel food cake. She would sit it on the passenger side and just drive, picking at the fluffy confection. I know a girl who could knock out an entire family size container of Sara Lee pound cake. So friends, those are a few confessions. Using the powers of anonym

Body Image & All That Jazz

This is a post I've been mulling over for a couple of days and thinking of how to approach. It's been prompted because people keep picking up on little nuggets in the blog and asking me questions, so I thought I might as well address everything here in an honest and factual manner. It's about to get real up in here, so grab a snuggie and some ice cream water and let's see what happens. This may be a trigger post, so feel free to skip the  red  text below  to the happier,  more positive green text. =)  I suppose the best place to start is with my eating disorder. Well, "under control" eating disorder is more appropriate. Anyone who's ever had an eating disorder of any variety knows that it never really  goes away. You learn to overcome it 98% of the time, but with the occasional yearn for your former vice or the even more rare slip back into bad habits. I became bulimic when I was about 16, and we had a fast and heavy kind of relationship

Of pizza and fudge [cake]

There comes a time in every girl's life when she has to make a choice. 1 slice or 2? "It's margherita pizza, redhead. How bad can it really be?" I stood in line at a local pizza place eyeing up their margherita pizza with it's circular discs of cheese, smattering of tomatoes, and dried basil leaves. "Yeah, how bad can  it be?" Sometimes in life you order 2 pieces. Sometimes those 2 pieces come out to you falling off of 2 paper plates. Sometimes you look and say "SWEET MERCY I'M ONLY EATING ONE OF THOSE!!". Today was not a day to only eat one of those. Well to be fair, it was, I just didn't bother to acknowledge that until I'd plowed my way through ½ of my second  slice. I can sit here and rationalize that I dabbed up a TON of oil, and it's thin crust, and blah blah blah, but bottom line… There was also chocolate fudge cake .  I know, right? I looked at the cake I'd said I'd split with my wonderful
