I confided in my friend, Nicole, who is on a similar journey of her own! She encouraged me to not give up, and also made a suggestion to do a "kick start" type of project, to help rid of the sugar cravings, and to help motivate me, and help me focus on my goals.
I went into this kick start, ready to go all in.
And I did on some things.
I can't lie and tell you I was perfect, but I can tell you I did the best I could! My mistake was attempting to do this kick start at work.
You see, at work, I stay hungry. All. the. time. While, at home, I am hardly ever hungry. I don't understand that at all!!
I prepped my meals, I timed out my meals and drinks, and prepped myself to drink all the water!
I fell off on the first day. No joke.
I picked back up the next day, and on day three, and did my absolute best.
A little Glimpse into this Kick Start:
There is also a fiber shake that you drink in the mid-morning, and a shake to drink with your lunch and dinner! It really is a lot of food.
And, of course, you are supposed to drink a ton of water! The best I drank those three days was a little over a gallon and a half! Which to me, is insane! But, it really did help!
*water tip: find a cute water bottle (or if your like- bottles) to drink out of. It is motivating, and makes it a tad bit more fun! I will share my current favorites below!
Overall, I lost almost five pounds!
And, I am holding on to that cucumber salad recipe! Sooo good!
Before & After:
The pictures honestly do not do the change, justice!
What is most important to me, is that I do not crave sugar... as much!
This cleanse was not one of the easiest things I have done. But, there are some things in life that are worth having, that are not easy to get! I would definitely try this again in a few months. On days when I am not working!!
