My 30 days

You may remember I signed up for the Isagenix 30 day program. I had done the 9 day cleanse in the past, well I stopped early when I found out I was pregnant with my last child.  The 30 day cleanse was not to difficult, but I still sucked at it. I documented my first 8 day and then got tired of tracking.

Overall I lost 10 lbs and probably some inches, so I can't complain. I didn't feel like remeasuring hence the probably in there.  Quick Pro's and Cons of the program.

The basic gist of the program is Shake for breakfast and dinner, 400-600 calorie lunch,  and two snacks - 6 days a week and then 1 cleanse day.

Pros:
It is easy to follow
The shakes are 240 calories before you add anything so filling
The shakes actually taste good with just water, which is rare for a protein mix
I love planning big lunches
 
Cons:
Cleanse days were boring, very little eating made me miss eating
Cleanse drink was kind of gross, I drank it like a shot
Impromptu eating out with the family was difficult on any day. I had to really plan 

The take away it is a good program. It made me think about a what I eat. At the end of the day I need to be able to do this on my own, only relaying on shakes when needed and not daily. I have a friend who has AMAZING results from this program. She looks awesome, but she also has the strong dedication. I am more disappointed in my ability to control my eating (as mentioned many times), then the program.

It's Wednesday and my goal today is to work on my diet one meal at time. Hopefully, I remember to take pictures to share with you all tomorrow.

  1. We are not alone my friend. Some people are crazy for exercise, some addicted to drugs or alcohol, food is our drug....it makes us happy, content, satisfied, it can be good and it can be bad...

    I am trying to remind myself treats are OK ~ just not the whole bag or entire carton of ice cream. I also am allowing any fruits and vegetables when I want...not overload but they are there and guilt free (to me ;) Finally, I am trying to become aware of true hunger pains and boredom eating. I always ask myself am I really hungry right now? Thirsty? or simply bored and just "craving something?

    Also, that is why I don't thick I could do shakes either....I would miss my food. ;)

    Little steps right? Keep it up!
