AdvoCare Cleanse – Day 9

With one more day to go on the cleanse, I am feeling much better. Last night I went to my spin class at the YMCA. Wow, is that a workout. They just recently changed the format, so it is much more challenging than before.

I’m excited to find out my results tomorrow and see how well I did. Even though the cleanse ends tomorrow, does not mean I can go back to eating all the sugar and other things. This is only the beginning and I hope to continue for a long time.

AdvoCare Cleanse – Day 8

I am in the final push of the cleanse. Only a few more days to go. The challenge will be to continue eating healthy and not going back to some old habits. A good friend recommends the 80/20 rule. 80% healthy and 20% fun. You do need to enjoy sweets every so often, and I think that is a great rule to live by.

I am also excited to check on the results on Wednesday. I’m hoping to be down a few pounds and inches. We’ll see!

Tonight is the gym and the spin class. It’s hard, but I love it!

AdvoCare Cleanse – Day 7

Today was a bit of a challenge. At church, there is always some sort of snack or treat. This morning they had mini-scones which looked really good. I really wanted to have one, but I didn’t. I was able to discipline myself and not have one.

I think many people won’t do a cleanse because they think they won’t be able to complete it. They think they will give in to the temptation. But, if you really want to do it, you will find ways to overcome the temptations and as time goes on, it will become easier and easier to resist.

Today’s dinner was a chicken chili in the crock pot. It was really good. Only three more days left and then I will be able to check the results. I am still feeling better and looking better.

AdvoCare Cleanse – Day 6

Today was a good day. Weekends are usually harder as I said yesterday. Everyday I’m feeling better and better, which is a good very thing. Today I had Mahi Mahi for dinner with Quinoa and grapes.

Not as much to report today. Only a few more days to go and I’ll get to see how many inches I have lost.

Stayed tuned!

AdvoCare Cleanse – Day 5

Today is the half-way mark of the 10-day cleanse. I’m feeling much less bloated and tired. My energy is up and I feel like I have a little bit more of a pep in my step.

Tomorrow is Saturday and the weekends can be the hardest to keep on the plan. It is much easier for me to plan my meals during the week, since I am taking my lunch to work. At home it is much easier to grab something quick and not think about it. Weekends take more work, but it still can be done.

Tonight I am going to a church event, so I’ll have to be very careful what I eat. There should be something there, even if it is just a salad and some oranges. I’ll figure something out. I’ll let you know how I do.

I’m looking forward to Day 10, not just because I’ll be done, but because I’ll be able to take my measurements and see the changes.

AdvoCare Cleanse – Day 4

Not much new to comment on today. I did take the correct supplements this morning, which is the fiber drink. It’s flavored, but if you mix it with Spark, it’s really pretty good. And, it’s gentle, not a harsh cleanse, which is very nice.

Dinner last night was Pesto Chicken that my wife, Michelle, made. It was good! I also had a small salad and nothing for dessert (no sugar!). Talking about sugar, some people say they go through sugar withdrawal. I haven’t had that sensation, and I’m hoping I won’t. But if I haven’t gotten it now, I probably won’t.

Lastly, I took my measurements this morning. That is a better way to track your progress then just your weight. You could be losing fat, but gaining muscle, so your weight wouldn’t change much. Counting inches lost is a much better way to track your progress.

AdvoCare Cleanse – Day 3

I have a confession to make, I messed up on what supplements I was supposed to take today. I took the ones I am supposed to take tomorrow. So, tomorrow I will take the ones I was to take today and get back on track on day 5.

Now that my mind is clear I can move on.

Yesterday for dinner I had baked salmon with oil, pepper, dill weed and lemon, with brussell sprouts and rice. It was very good and very easy to make. Tonight, my wife has made chicken in the crock pot. I’m still not drinking enough water and need to work on that, but I am doing better.

I haven’t weighed myself yet, and don’t plan too until after the cleanse, but I do know I am feeling better.

AdvoCare Cleanse – Day 2

So, I made it to Day 2 of the cleanse. Yesterday was a good start, but there is room for improvement. First of all, I didn’t drink enough water. The recommendation is half of your body weight in ounces. For me, that would be about 87 ounces. I don’t think I got half of that. Today I am doing better. Second, I didn’t eat much dinner, but I did go to the gym and do an hour spin class. I don’t like to eat before going to the gym and it’s too late when I get home.

Some of you may be asking why do a cleanse? Think of it as cleaning the lint trap in your dryer or changing the oil in your car. The idea is getting the bad bacteria out of your system and then replacing it with good bacteria, or probiotics. I have done cleanses in the past and I always feel less sluggish. They are a great way to feel healthy and I highly recommend trying this one.

AdvoCare Cleanse – Day 1

This morning I started the AdvoCare 10-day cleanse. It consists of eating no sugar, processed foods, high-fat foods and fried-foods. You can eat fruits, vegetables, fish, nuts, chicken, etc., while also taking a fiber drink and other supplements. (I’ll get into more detail on those as the cleanse continues.

My main goal is to lose weight (I weighed myself last night and I am at about 173 lbs). But, this is also a chance to feel better and not so sluggish. This cleanse really helps get your energy back and all-around, just feel better.

I’m excited about the next 10 days and I hope you’ll join me on my journey.
