As my seven year-old would say.
That’s just how the first real cleanse day was for me.
Yes…I’m just as stunned as you are to hear it! A day where you drink four glasses of cleansing juice, interspersed with special Isagenix snacks and the odd pair of almonds (yes, the massive two-almond snack is still going strong!)
But really…today I felt unstoppable. I was strangely optimistic, actually. I just felt like I had a positive overall outlook on life. Was it the Isagenix? Was it the fact that the temperature had finally gone up (to -10) and the sun was shining? Maybe one or the other…maybe both. Either way, I’m not complaining.
But I know you want to know…how was it to go a whole day with no food at all? Not that hard, in the end. The juice tasted pretty good, and what with the special Isagenix snacks (actually, I have to say these little nuggets of what seems like pressed shake powder are not all that special, but I hear the Isadelight chocolate is to die for), almonds and water at regular intervals, I never had a chance to get all that hungry. Coach Steve advised me I could enjoy vegetables on a cleanse day, so I did eat a bunch of snap peas, a few grape tomatoes and one baby carrot this evening while enjoying a bit of a get-together with some gal pals. Plus, there was this yummy "Want More Energy?" drink that I really, really enjoyed.
On top of the optimism, though, I noticed a couple of other benefits today on Isagenix:
- I did my weekly grocery shopping, and it cost all of $38.00. Of course, when you’re not eating all that much food (zero meals today and tomorrow, one meal on the five remaining shake days) you don’ really buy much! I got stuff for my kids, more chicken breasts and a lot more veggies. That’s it. No crackers, no chips, no cookies, no meat, no frozen meals…that’s a savings of at least $120 per week.
- I have already lost weight! Just two days ago I weighed in at 176.8, and this evening, I tipped the scales at 175.4! That means in just over a day I dropped 1.4 pounds. And here’s the photographic evidence:
I’m heading off to bed now, energized and looking forward to tomorrow!
