Annnnndd…..Nick and I made it through our 9 Day Nutritional Cleanse! Well, sort of…
Typically the cleanse ends the morning of the 10th day, but we decided to break it about 7pm last night. Why?
It wasn’t so much about hunger, it was more about planning for the morning ahead.
I knew I’d be up super early (4:15am), and I also knew I had a kick-butt workout planned (mega hill sprints & leg workout). I did not feel keen on having a shake or a bar that early, so I opted for a nice salad with grilled chicken last night.
Did I “fail” because I ended the cleanse early? Hell no!
I always tell my clients that you do what works for you! If you can only manage nightly cleansing (taking the Cleanse for Life product before bed or upon waking), that is GREAT! I’ve even done 3/4 day cleanses, where I cleanse until dinner. There will be those who say this is all wrong, but I am all about tweaking and making it work for the individual.
I definitely feel much, much better! Lighter,clearer, stronger and with way more energy. I am so glad I did it!
Will I do it again anytime soon?
Not sure – I was doing one once/quarter, so I will probably get back on that schedule. What I will start doing regularly again are one-day cleanse days either one day/week or every two weeks. I know I felt best when I was doing this before. And of course, my normal days will still be some variation of the same theme:
- Ionix Supreme, IsaGreens, CFL, Apple Cider Vinegar concoction every day, along with Ageless Essentials with Product B IsaGenesis, Joint Support and Brain Boost
- 1 to 2 IsaLean or IsaLean Pro shakes per day
- 1 to 2 regular meals
- snacks as needed
As far as results go…as I said before, I do not weigh myself, but prefer to go by how my clothes fit and how I feel. That said, I definitely feel tighter and lighter. And I think I can see some changes between my Day 1 and Day 10 photos :
NOTE: my exercise during these last 9 days has been less than it usually is – I did not work out on any of the 4 cleanse days, and while my workouts were intense the rest of the time, they probably were not as intense as usual. And with the exception of an awesome 12 mile run this past Saturday, they were very short, and included very, very little targeted ab-work. I tell you this to drive home the fact that abs are made in the kitchen, not the gym .
