You Lose some, You Lose some


Day 1:
shake, lunch, shake, 20 minutes on the elliptical = Easy

Day 2: shake, lunch, shake, 20 minutes on the elliptical = Easy

Day 3: cleanse juice every 4 hours, 20 minutes on the elliptical = Ehhh, doable

Day 4: cleanse juice every 4 hours, 20 minutes on the elliptical = Oh boy.

Total weightloss on the 4th day: 4 lbs!

Day 5: postponed ('wwwhat?!' says some.. 'Go figure' says the others)

I'm such a loser, I know. This cleanse definitely made the week interesting, but knowing there was another 6 days left I chickened out. It really wasn't horrible either! The Shakes were eh, okay but the Cleanse Juice was actually more enjoyable. I have a wedding next month where i'm rocking a b'maid dress SO I'm using the rest of the cleanse pack for the 6 days before the wedding. Which means not a penny was wasted except my pride

I know this is a big fat excuse, but I'm still rocking a sinus cold and did not feel 'enlightened' and have a clear head like it said I would, but I believe it will happen when I'm not sick anymore.

If anything, it did kick start getting back into the swing of things, so I'm glad I tried it out. Part 2 will be in June...

And thank you, Caroline, for letting me vent on gchat for about 8 hrs a day since Monday :)


Ahhhhhh I should've just lied and posted on the 11th day with a picture of this:

What I AM going to do on Friday, is set up my first Personal Trainer appointment and cash in on one of the GrouponBoston deals i got! $59 for 3 sessions with a PT at One2One Bodyscapes. I heart Groupon

I just want to feel fabulous in my own skin.. and I gotta do something about it.

I've often thought about doing something like this, but realize I would die and then eat an entire cheesecake in rebellion, so.. not worth it.

My husband and I did a cleanse once--sooo hard! I was ready to gag by the time the third day came around. The smoothies were good at first, but the 9th one? Ick.

I am proud of your for getting that far, I haven't been able to bring myself to even go to the gym lately, let alone eat healthy. And agreed, you are fabulous no matter what!

Maxie said...

I don't blame you-- I can't even seem to work out two days in a row. 4 days is better than zero.

I am SO with you on that. If only I could find your motivation!

The real question... is have you kept off the 4 lbs? I too have a wedding and then a beach weekend coming up in a few weeks. A quick fix for 5 lbs would be awesome! But not if I'll gain it back within the first day at the beach! ha!

Any thoughts on keeping it off? Most appreciated.
