The 3 Day Refresh: My Experience and Results

I just finished up the 3 Day Refresh.

The 3 Day Refresh is one of Beachbody's newest products that is suppose to help you jump into a quick weight loss, healthier eating habits and get a clean break from some bad eating habits. It's a system that cleanses your system but helps your metabolism while nourishing you.

This is a low calorie program  but it is packed full of protein and fiber to keep you full.

I was eating pretty healthy before the 3 Day Refresh but I had been on a plateau for months. The scale would go between 137-140 constantly. I knew it would be one of those numbers every time I stepped on the scale in the morning and I wanted a break through! I had also heard amazing results as far as losing inches off your waist and I could really use that. My youngest is a year old and I just haven't been able to loose any mommy tummy. I love wearing jeans but I never would wear them because it was just uncomfortable for my mommy tummy to hang over my waistband. I was just tired and ready for a change.

I began to do PiYo and miraculously after a few weeks lost a pound and some inches includes an inch off my waist. What would happen when I added in the 3 Day Refresh?!

Let's first talk about what I had to do for three days.

The mornings (every morning!) began with Shakeology and a fruit serving. This was my favorite meal. I love Shakeology. It always gives me energy and keeps me full. The addition of a fruit serving? Awesome! But come mid-morning, around 10 a.m. for me, I had to drink this lovely thing called Fiber Sweep.

Oh Fiber Sweep.

I loathe your taste and I wasn't sure I was going to make it the first day.

You are suppose to mix it with 8 ounces of water.

I did, but I let it sit way too long before I got it all down and it got thick. My son was cheering me on "drinky, drinky, drinky!" in hopes that I would get the entire thing down.

That was an interesting time.

The next two mornings. I drank it quickly. It still wasn't great but I got it down quick.

The afternoons began with a lunch of the Vanilla Fresh shake, a fruit serving, a vegetable serving and a healthy fat serving. It wasn't too bad. I was happy I got to eat some "real food". Then later in the afternoon you are allowed a healthy vegetable and a healthy fat. 

The servings are all marked out in the little book that you receive with the 3 Day Refresh kit. 

The evening consists of drinking another Vanilla Fresh shake and eating one of the dinner options that are in the book. 

The shakes were even hard for me to get down. I'm a sipper. It makes things like this a little difficult. And the Vanilla Fresh is pretty sweet tasting. But I made it. 

The entire time I kept telling myself that it was only three days. Now it has came and went and I'm so glad I did it!

On to the results...


The photos on the left are the before and the photos on the right are after. I ended up losing 2 pounds and 2 1/2 inches total!

I couldn't believe how I looked after I did this for 3 days. THREE DAYS!

I weighed in at 134 pounds and a huge smile crept across my face as I went happily to tell my husband that I was back at wedding dress weight! Four anniversaries and two babies later and I finally had hit the weight I was when I married my handsome husband.

And then Friday morning...2 mornings after my 3 Day Refresh and I conquered a non scale victory!


So this picture may look totally normal to you. But ever since I've had my babies I have never, never rolled my yoga band down on my yoga pants. My stomach has always been a problem area for me and I felt that if I kept the band up over my tummy it helped shrink it a bit more and didn't allow for my mommy tummy to hang over the band. This morning...I rolled that band down and felt good about it!

Am I crazy? Quite possibly. But I'm crazy while I am starting to hit goals and feel better about my body.

The thing is I'm not out comparing myself to other woman. I don't want to look like them. I want to look like the best self that I can be. Beachbody is helping me do that and I am so happy that I also get to help others out on their own journey to get fit and healthy!

I have more goals to hit that I have set for myself and I know I am going to do it. I am changing my life and I can help you change yours!

If you'd like to try out the 3 Day Refresh for yourself the Challenge Pack which includes an entire month of Shakeology costs $140 (Sale Price through July 31st!)

A juicing cleanse will cost you that for three days without the entire month of having a nutritious meal every single day that will help keep your health and weight in check.

I'd love to hear from you!
