What I Was Scared To Tell You

So....I've been keeping something under wraps, and it was 100% due to the fact that I thought I would fail. I thought I wouldn't be able to do it, so if I didn't tell anyone, no one would know. Yep - not proud of THAT, but it's the truth.

What I AM PROUD OF is that I actually DID do it - I surprised myself! So now, I get to share it with you!

Most of you know, I recently completed 60 days of the program The Master's: Hammer and Chisel. I had fantastic results and was stoked! (You can see my YouTube channel for my vlogs through that process!)

Hammer & Chisel 60 Day Results!

The week after - I definitely took the opportunity to be lax. :) My workouts were still happening, but they were mostly cardio. And my food, well let's just say that my normally 80/20 rule went more to like 50/50! That left me with a lot of "waste weight" and bloat and I wanted to reset my system a bit.

I decided to use the 3 Day Refresh to do so. I chose this route because unlike other "cleanses" and detox systems....this focused on whole nutrition, you still got to CHEW FOOD, and it wasn't dangerously low on calories. Here's the general concept over the three days:

Morning: Shakeology

Morning snack: fruit and unsweetened herbal tea

Late Morning: Fiber Sweep

Lunch: Vanilla Fresh Shake with a vegetable, fruit, and a healthy fat

Afternoon snack: vegetable and health fat and unsweetened herbal tea

Dinner: Vanilla Fresh Shake with a vegetable and healthy fat

Also drink a minimum of 64 oz of water each day (I drank around 100oz, personally)

I was, admittedly, a little nervous. I like to eat, but I knew this bloat needed to be gone!

Here we go!!


Here are my thoughts AND results:


You still get to EAT food! YES!
Balance of fruit (carbs/sugar), vegetables, and healthy fats.
I was still able to teach TurboKick Live each of the 3 days! I only did a personal workout in addition to teaching on Day 1. For Days 2 and 3, I saved my energy to teach my classes.
There were only a couple times I felt truly hungry. Otherwise, I was honestly surprised at how satiated I felt.
I wasn't chained to a toilet. This isn't a "flush you out" type of cleanse - at least it wasn't for me!


The only true con I can think of is that Fiber Sweep. Not gonna lie - each day I had to chug that down as fast as possible. To me, the taste isn't bad, but the texture was gritty.

Not a fan of the Fiber Sweep...LOL!

Overall Results:

I lost 4.2 pounds in 3 days! This is NOT fat loss, this is waste/bloat loss. But my tummy feels AND looks better.

Day 1, Day 2, and Day 3!

Overall, I think the 3 Day Refresh is for anyone who is either looking to rebound after an extended food binge, kick start a new way of eating/killing the bad food cravings, or someone looking to get that extra push to go past a plateau!

Since I had such a great experience - I am happy to share a DISCOUNT on the Refresh for the rest of March. $5 off the base kit and $10 off the complete kit!
