day 2 journal
Day 2 of the 3 Day Refresh was even easier for me. Again, I was definitely hungry at some points. I really like starting the day out with a big glass of water. I didn’t want to eat – well, drink – breakfast till later but I made myself.
Work was less crazy so I was able to eat a it more on schedule today. I actually looked forward to the Fiber Sweep since I was starting to feel pretty hungry around 10:30! I wasn’t ready for lunch at 12:30 but I had a meeting so I had to eat it. I thought I would be ravenous since I the snack is pretty small for the afternoon. I was actually okay though.
The drive home was not so fun. I normally get home around 6 pm and the weather was really bad so traffic followed suit. I started to feel VERY hungry out of nowhere at 6:30 and was almost home. I threw that recipe on the stove in a hot minute! Haha! I scarfed it. Skipped the broth and just had a cup of tea since I ate too fast. It was a good move I guess because I was fine after the tea. Perhaps this is teaching me better to recognize hunger vs. thirst?
I slept great again. Like fantasticly great. Overall I feel really good too. Lighter.
Here is what I ate and when:
6:30 am – Water (12 oz)
7:45 am – Chocolate Vegan Shakeology (with 10 oz of water)
