Today marks the halfway point of this most wonderful journey! 10 days ago 22 of my peeps and I embarked on a journey together. I have done nutritional cleanses a couple times in the past with pretty good results. But, I was convinced I could get even better results. So, a couple months ago I started to tinker with the program and I came up with a winner! My plan was to start the 21 Day Fat Meltdown before the holiday season so we would already be lean and have learned to practice the tools we need to get through all the eating and drinking without gaining weight.
The program I have designed is a nutritional cleanse and “reset” combined with an intense exercise protocol. We met on Sunday, November 3rd and everyone received their Nutritional Cleanse Handbook, list of recommended supplements, workout calendar, and a comprehensive shopping list. We spent about an hour talking about how this is going to look like. We talked about what results are reasonable to expect (8 – 10 pounds and a dress/jeans size) and some strategies to help.
Off we then went to go to the grocery store and stock up on the good stuff. We started our workouts on Monday morning at 5:30A. Everyone was excited and ready to go! The energy in the room was awesome! As the first few days unfurled, our bodies started to detox. I woke up with a headache on Tuesday morning that hung on to me like glue for two days. It was my sugar detox headache…but, by Thursday I felt a huge surge of energy and the headache was gone!
Now that the nutritional detox part is over we are concentrating on portion control and hydration. I’d like to share some of the results with you so far: Rich: 11 pounds, Jessica: 7 pounds, Marilee: 11 pounds, Sue: 7 pounds, Sami: 7 pounds, Manjit: 5 pounds. Everyone else is hovering around the 3 – 7 pound mark already.
I appreciate their hard work and I am thoroughly enjoying this journey because of them. We are all in this together and we lean on each other when we need to. So, when Thanksgiving arrives, the only rolls we’ll have will be on the table!!!
