Another Refresh Day in the books! Day 2 went a lot smoother than the first, but that is to be expected. There was one minor set back, but we will get to that later.
I must say drinking a glass of water in the morning certainly revs up the metabolism. I would wait until I was just about to leave for work to drink. Not anymore… out of bed, feed the dog, drink water!
And since we are on the topic of liquids. One pressing question might be,”how does this stuff taste?” A good question indeed. I still had my Strawberry Shakeology in the morning with either blueberries or pineapples. It tastes like a ray of tropical sunshine. Seriously it is so good, it is hard to believe that it is vegan! And the Vanilla Refresh that you drink at lunch and dinner? I swear it tastes like birthday cake! It is a little too sweet for me since I am not a sweets person anymore. You could tone it down mixing in some fruit in a blender, but since I don’t have a blender at work…. Straight up it is!
Fiber Sweep does exactly what you think it does so there is no need to go into further detail. There is a trick . You have to drink it fast or else!!! Seriously, there is no sipping the sweep! Trust me on this one. Since it is made up of soluble and insoluble fiber it is a bit pulpy. If you don’t think about it, you won’t notice it. It also has a lemony (is that a word) flavor which is very refreshing. It’s a small amount, so 5-6 big gulps and it’s done.
Almost forgot about my minor set back. I was so excited for my lunch of grapes, carrots, and Vanilla Fresh that I almost had a heart attack. I forgot my grapes at home!! Dude, that 3/4 cup of grapes was a third of my lunch!! Without those grapes… I might starve! I made a audible gasp and starting talking out loud about my horrible situation. But luckily Trader Joe’s came to the rescue. I waited in line for 5 minutes for 1 apple. That’s right. No popcorn, no chips. Just one lone apple that would save me from starvation, and it did. Talk about having a plan and sticking to it!
I was so busy dropping my mom’s dog off at the sitter and packing for vacation that I only had time to have a Vanilla refresh for dinner. It got the job done!
In my Les Mis voice… ONE DAY MORE!!!
