Day ONE...

Ugh! This is going to be short and sweet...Today is Day ONE of the Advocare 10 Day Herbal Cleanse and to say I'm exhausted and drained would be an understatement! Here are the basic rules for the cleanse and the info really helped me prepare, both mentally and food-wise. Seeing the do's and dont's in black and white yesterday was like a slap in the face!

I have to be honest, this is my THIRD go around with this same cleans and I've yet to make it past Day FOUR or FIVE without cheating and completely falling off the cleanse wagon by the end of the 10 days! What's different this time!? A little thing known as CANCUN! The countdown is ON! Three weeks until sand, sun and swimsuits! That's enough to make anyone do whatever it takes to shed a few pounds like NOW!

I'm going to try to do a short recap daily, not only because I know you B Faces are dying to know just how miserable I am, but more so as a way to keep myself on track...hopefully! Megan @ It's A Grimm Thing also started the cleanse today and we've already been texting about how badly she needed coffee this AM and how hungry I was this afternoon! I hope this "Buddy System" helps us both!

Day ONE!!
1. Drank Fiber Drink as soon as I got up!
2. Chugged the H2O like there was no tomorrow, over 100 ounces! Holla!
3. No workout today.
4. I will take my Herbal Cleanse Pills (3) before I go to bed.

Here's what I are today, I was going to just post MyFitnessPal daily log but posting from my phone isn't user-friendly good old fashioned typing it is...
Breakfast - Fiber Drink
AM Snack - Spark
Lunch - 2 Celery Sticks, 2 tbsp of Natural PB, medium sized Banana
PM Snack - Spark
Dinner - 10 oz.. Grilled Chicken, 1.5 cups of Green Beans.
Total Calories = 725
I'm definitely planning to increase my calorie intake some tomorrow. I was rushed this AM to get out the door and just grabbed whatever was in reach the easiest and quickest!

Mood/Energy - The morning started out well and I was in good spirits. I became pretty agitated and on edge this afternoon, tonight is pure exhaustion. Like it's 7:45pm and I could easily close my eyes and be out!

Day ONE Down and ZERO Cheating! Boom! Here's to NINE more... FML!



  1. You got this girl!! Just keep thinking about the beach, sun, sand and looking awesome in all those outfits & swim suits!!! Those 9 days will fly by!!!

  2. You NEED to eat more calories! Prob why you are least 1200 per day. If not, your body holds on to fat instead of getting rid of it bc it needs it for energy!!!

  3. Just keep thinking about Cancun! You can do this!

  4. I'm thinking the crabbier you feel the better the cleanse is going lol. It will all be worth it when you are relaxing in Cancun.

  5. You got this girl! days 1-3 kinda 4 are the WORST. After that you will just fly on by I promise! I lost 9.2 when I did it last month before my vaca! You can do it!

  6. Oh hell, you're going to rock this thing, don't tell yourself any different! :) CANCUN, BABAY!

  7. You are doing awesome! I totally had coffee even though it's a nono. I can't not!!
