JJ Smith’s 10 Day Green Smoothie Cleanse: Round 2

image

Happy Monday everyone!!

Just like last time…I am hesitant to post pics…but I am..and I’m hoping it will inspire someone else.

I just finished round two of the green smoothie cleanse. In the 20 days (took a week break in between the two rounds and am being followed by my doctor) I have lost 18 lbs!!!!! Go me! Go me!

My boyfriend joined me this time and I don’t know how much he has lost yet but he looks noticeably different.

I have to say this cleanse has really changed the way I view what I eat. Since my journey has begun, my blood pressure is down from 130/98 to 110/79. I’m a nurse and I’m on my feet all day and I have noticed a big change in the way I feel after a long day. No more pain!
Again I have to thank my coworker Sandra for inspiring me to try this cleanse; JJ Smith for sharing this wonderful wisdom with me; my family and friends who have supported me every step of the way; and all of YOU on this page that encourage me and inspire me everyday!!

JJ Smith’s 10 Day Green Smoothie Cleanse

Hello all!

So June 8th I started JJ Smith’s 10 day Green Smoothie Cleanse. It’s a cleanse that focuses on what all cleanses focus on….cleaning out all the toxins. Your day consists of drinking a homemade smoothie (usually spinach based with fruit) and snacking inbetween on fresh fruit and veggies. I downloaded her book off of Amazon.  It was a little rough day one….but after that, I had so much energy, my face cleared up and the inches were coming off. In the 10 days I lost 11 lbs but the difference I noticed was in my waistline. 
I took the before pics(at the top) June 8th and the after pics this morning. I have lost a total of 11 lbs with no gym! I didn’t measure myself but the proof is in the pictures! I will start round two after a 5 day break with just clean eating.

Super Shred Week 2

Hey ya’ll,

So I’m just having a vent session. So I’ve had success with the super shred diet…but for my lifestyle, it’s just not working. At work I NEVER eat on time because I just don’t have time. When I’m off I sleep in which throws the timing off and leaves me eating extremely too late. So now I’m frustrated. I’ve never been able to stick to a program (besides clean eating) for too long. And I have major vacation plans for this summer! I can’t go looking like this! Any suggestions??

Oh and Happy Earth Day!
