So this morning I started the Advocare Herbal Cleanse {click here to try it out}. Last night I spent a very little amount of time prepping my food for the next few days so that there is no room for me to decide I'm craving half a pizza and cram it down my pie hole at the speed of light a slip up. I decided to only prep for the first 3-4 days instead of the full 10 because I want to see how I feel and gage what I might need to add to my meal plan for varitey to keep me interested, or I might need to add more calories to keep my energy up.

This morning I started out with my fiber drink. I mixed it with some Trop 50 orange juice, I heard OJ makes the drink go down in it doesn't seem too much like you're drinking a thick, grainy, citrus flavored water drink. I was expecting the worst, and honestly it wasn't really that bad. I added ice and drank it through a was super sweet but I just took a sip of water between gulps!

On the Advocare website there is a list of what you should eat, and the things you should stay away from, as well as a chart telling you what to eat and when. Basically you stay away from refined carbohydrates, fats such as oil and butter, and anything fried, processed, or ladden with sugar. No brainer right?

It's been about 45 minutes since I have finished my fiber drink & I'm not rushing to the bathroom, so that's a good sign. This particular cleanse is known for being "gentle" which basically means you won't be stuck in the bathroom all day for 10 days. I'm optomistic about this cleanse. I know how to eat, I know what to eat, and I know I need to exercise. I also know Bikini Season is only 4 months away...and I am not getting in a bikini with this booty.

When I did my "vegan" January I felt the best I've ever felt. I didn't loose a significant amount of weight or anything, but my stomach bloat disappeared, I had energy, my skin was clear, and I was regular. I probably won't do the whole vegan thing again, I missed meat too much, but I do think after I finish this cleanse I am going to begin the whole 30 program.

Hope you ladies had a great weekend!
