One day. That’s all I’m taking off . Today was Day Ten, as in, the first nine day cleanse period was over. Theoretically, I was supposed to go back to shake days (i.e. two Isagenix shakes per day, and one 400-600 calorie meal). But I was sooooo looking forward to eating again. So I decided I would. Not anything crazy, just three sensible meals. But three. actual. meals. It was going to be AMAZING.
In the end, breakfast and lunch (blueberry muffin and ham/cheese panini respectively) weren’t so great. Very disappointing, in fact. The best parts of my day were the apples & grapes, and the homemade thin-crust pizza I made for dinner. THAT was good. Oh! And coffee! MY. GOD. Truly. I cannot tell you how good a cup of coffee was. Funny, because it wasn’t actually hard to give it up at all (although it was my biggest worry, when I started this Isagenix). But this morning? The second that beautiful black coffee hit my tongue I was in heaven.
But I actually have felt blah all day. My stomach feels absolutely stuffed, and since I didn’t actually enjoy most of what I ate anyway, I don’t feel like it was all that worth it. Plus, how I feel having finished the initial 9 days of the cleanse is sooooo incredibly worthwhile; that in itself is better than any "treat" food.
So. How did I do after the first 9 days on Isagenix?
I lost 10.2 pounds!
I lost 13.8 inches!
Here’s to the next 21 days! And the next 30, and so on…
