3 Day Refresh
Over the last few months we’ve had so much going on in life that I’ve let my nutrition slack some. I really started to feel it lately. The scale is stuck, my brain is foggy, and I feel blah a lot. Finally I decided to do something about it. I know a lot of people who have done the 3 Day Refresh from Beachbody and had great success. They’ve lost 3-5 lb. and just felt better all around. In this blog I’ll share my experience with it.

3 day refresh update
Posted by Danielle Springer on Friday, June 2, 2017
Day 1 – Wednesday May 31st
I started the day with my workout (I did a Country Heat video since they recommend a light workout while doing the refresh) then I had my Chocolate Shakeology. I got my before pictures, weight and measurements I followed the plan exactly and honestly wasn’t hungry, other than when I was supposed to be. It was pretty easy to do (except for the Fiber Sweep! That is gross!)
These are my meals from Day 1, other than my Shakeology since I drank it before I remembered to take a picture.
Day 2 – Thursday June 1st
Got my workout done first thing as usual (another Country Heat video) it’s not a hard workout for me but boy do I miss my Energize! It really makes such a huge difference in how much energy I have to give my workouts. Had my shake for breakfast while driving kids to school. I was dreading the Fiber Sweep but I tried making it with less water so I could get it down faster. I chugged it like I was back in college and got it down better than the 1st day. Oh wait, what am I saying? I NEVER went to parties and drank in college 🙂 I did make a small tweak today and had an extra fruit serving after my karate class.

Day 3 – Friday June 2nd
Finished another Country Heat video today and had my shake while getting ready for the day. I’ve got a busy day so while I had some time this morning I got my lunch and dinner together so they are already in the fridge to just grab when I’m hungry. Did the Fiber Sweep with less water again today but I’m not gonna lie, I’m glad that was the last one. Today I was hungrier than I was the other days. I was also really tired, but I also didn’t sleep great (Thanks, anxiety). I made another tweak here and I had my dinner salad before my daughter’s volleyball game and my shake after.
Day 3 meals & snack
Results – Saturday June 3rd
It’s results day. I’m pleased to say I lost 4 lb. and 1” from my waist. I’m not really feeling as good as I had hoped to but I’ve heard sometimes things continue to detox for a few more days so we’ll see. I did learn that I haven’t been spacing my meals and snacks out well which could very well be messing with my metabolism. Often, I wouldn’t eat anything until after being up almost 3 hours and then wouldn’t eat again for over 4 hours. I was eating most of my Portion Fix Containers in the afternoon and evening. I’m going to work on changing that. Hopefully that will help me shed these last 10 lb.
So would I recommend the 3 Day Refresh? I’m betting you are thinking “Of course, she will! She’s a Coach and she wants to make money off of me!” Well, honestly I will say I’m not sure I’d do it again, at least not anytime soon. I mean, yes I lost 4 lb. in 3 days but, I think this type of thing just isn’t for me. Not saying it’s a bad product or it didn’t work, just not for me. Who knows, maybe I’ll try it again at some point. So should you try it? That’s up to you. Do you want to drop a few pounds in just a few days? Have your eating habits gotten out of control and you need a jump start? Then the 3 Day Refresh may be perfect for you. If you aren’t sure, contact me and we can talk about it.
