5 Day Nutritive Cleanse Day 5

Today is the last day! That's right Day 5 of the 5-Day Nutritive Cleanse. This is a huge accomplishment and I am excited that I am almost done.

I am down another 1.8lbs today. I woke up feeling just a bit light headed. I took my Balance Complete with Peppermint and am feeling better.

My suggestion is when you decide to do this or any cleanse, have leftovers or meals prepared already for your family. I made some but not enough and actually made my husband reheat everything up and serve the kiddos and I left the room. I didn't want to be around all of that. :)

Here is what I ate today. 

Day 5:
Breakfast: 
Took the Digest & Cleanse
Balance Complete with Almond Milk 8oz added a drop of Peppermint Vitality

Snack:
Ningxia Red 4oz  9am  

Lunch: 
Took the Digest & Cleanse
Balance Complete with Almond Milk 8oz added a drop of Peppermint Vitality (Delish)

Snack:
Ningxia Red 4oz 

Dinner: 
Took the Digest & Cleanse
Balance Complete with Almond Milk 8oz added a drop of Peppermint Vitality 
Drank half a gallon of water

How was Day 3: 
I am really excited that this is the last day. I am actually shocked that I wasn't hungry. When reading the directions I thought I would be starving all week but that wasn't the case. WOOHOO Can't wait to see what the scale says tomorrow. :) What a great start to my new way of life. 

My major struggles:
Feeling lightheaded this morning wasn't fun but glad it was better once I "ate" the Balance Complete and Ningxia Red. I had more things to do so I didn't drink as much water as I wanted to.

5 Day Nutritive Cleanse Day 4

Day 4 of the 5-Day Nutritive Cleanse. I have been getting some great sleep. Of course, I get the nightly "mom, mom!! Are you awake?" but that is my job and expected. My headache is not there. I'm not sure when it disappeared but I am glad it's gone. (Psst, I still want coffee. It taste so good.) 

I jumped on the scale and I am down 3 more pounds. I think the Cize workout and drinking more than a gallon of water is really helping. That is a total of 10.4lbs down. 

Here is what I ate today. 

Day 4:
Breakfast: 
Took the Digest & Cleanse
Balance Complete with Almond Milk 8oz added 5 drop of Orange Vitality

Snack:
Ningxia Red 4oz  11am Got busy and forgot
Drank half a gallon of water by noon

Lunch: 
Took the Digest & Cleanse
Balance Complete with Almond Milk 8oz added a drop of Peppermint Vitality (Delish)

Snack:
Ningxia Red 4oz 

Dinner: 
Took the Digest & Cleanse
Balance Complete with Almond Milk 8oz added a drop of Peppermint Vitality 
Drank half a gallon of water

How was Day 3: 
Today I have more energy and I am not hungry at all. I really do want to eat but I think that's just normal. I love that I have been doing this cleanse with some of my friends online, have more energy and that I am still reducing the toxins. 

My major struggles:
I find that I am getting bored with the Balance Complete so I decided to start the day with Orange Vitality but by lunch I went back to Peppermint. Not sure why just wanted the change I guess.

5 Day Nutritive Cleanse Day 3

Day 3 of the 5-Day Nutritive Cleanse. I am at the half way point! I don't remember having any dreams of food last night so that's good. :) I found myself very tired around 10pm last night and I just went to bed. I don't think that is because of the cleanse but from the fact that I have not been sleeping enough. #MomsLife 

I weighed in and I am down 2 more pounds, so that is a total of 7.4. I don't feel bloated. I had enough energy to do Cize, my dancing workout video. It's really fun so it doesn't feel like you are working out.
I do have a little headache but it's a lot less than it was the first 2 days. I think my body is coming to terms with the fact that I am not going to have coffee. :( Sad but true. 

I only drank a half of a gallon of water yesterday because I had a few errands to do and didn't want to be needing facilities. I would rather be home for all that. Today my goals is to get back to the 1 gallon of water and see what happens. 

Here is what I ate today. 


Breakfast: 
Balance Complete with Almond Milk 8oz added a drop of Peppermint Vitality (Delish)

Snack:
Ningxia Red 4oz  (I waited a couple of hours to have my Ningxia so that it felt like a snack.)
Drank half a gallon of water by 10am
Lunch: 
Balance Complete with Almond Milk 8oz added a drop of Peppermint Vitality (Delish)

Snack:
Ningxia Red 4oz 

Dinner: 
Balance Complete with Almond Milk 8oz added a drop of Peppermint Vitality 
Drank half a gallon of water

How was Day 3: 
I like that I am 7lbs down and I'm glad that all the toxins are leaving. I am trying to work on a meal plan for Saturday and beyond. The Balance Complete is not bad but I am getting bored with it. Today I added a drop of Peppermint Vitality to change things up. Not only is it delicious but peppermint helps to curve your appetite. ;) 

My major struggles:  
I find that when I am hungry, I want food right now. The Digest & Cleanse says to take it 30-60 minutes before a meal. So once I am hungry I have to take the softgel and wait. That kinda stinks but it is my fault for not being ready and prepared.

It's Back!!! Instant Pot 7 in 1 only $79

The Instant Pot 7 in 1 deal is back!  I bought this 7 in 1 Instant Pot on Prime Day and I am so glad I did. I have made the best hard boiled eggs. Don't judge I usually make them and then can't get those crazy shells off. UGH! Did you know that you can also cook FROZEN Chicken and rice in 25 minutes? You can in this awesome machine and let's face it, if I can figure out how to use it anyone can.
Right now you can grab the 7 in 1 Instant Pot for only $79 each. That is a great price and worth checking out. The best part is that they are both on Amazon Prime and you can get it here before Christmas! 

This one machine is totally replacing my crockpot and rice cooker. Right there is enough to make me happy. I have a really small house and if I can have one machine to do multiple things it's a win/win situation and helps me with my kitchen cabinet issue. (Yes, it's an issue).

Instant Pot is a smart Electric Pressure Cooker designed by Canadians aiming to be Safe, Convenient and Dependable. It speeds up cooking by 2~6 times using up to 70% less energy and, above all, produces nutritious healthy food in a convenient and consistent fashion.


5 Day Nutritive Cleanse Day 2

Day 2 of the 5-Day Nutritive Cleanse It's so weird I had lots of dreams with food in them. I actually remember eating something in my dream that was not allowed and feeling like I just messed everything up. Luckily, it was just a dream and I am still on the cleanse!

The first thing I did was jump on the scale this morning to see if I could see any progress. I am actually down 5.4lbs. That is incredible. I noticed that I am not as bloated as I usually am. So far, so good.

My goal today is to consume the same products I did yesterday and try not to have any snacks. The snacks are optional so I am going to try to eliminate them.

How was Day 2: 
I am not really hungry but I do want food. People were chatting with me today and mentioning lunch and that did sound awesome! I did commit to this cleanse for the next few days and I am not going to quit.


My major struggles: 
Woke up feeling like I failed because of my "dream food fest". Ha! I still have a small headache and I have gone to try and make coffee a couple of times before I caught myself. All in all I think I am doing pretty good.
Around dinner I started getting really hungry. It didn't let up at all, and my headache came back. I don't know if it's because I didn't drink as much water as yesterday but I am still detoxing so this is to be expected.
