June Refresh

It’s the first of June…and a Monday…sounds like a perfect time for a refresh!

I confessed during my Runfessions that my eating has gotten a little off track. I hadn’t stepped on a scale but I could tell I’d added a few pounds. Well I got on the scale this weekend…um yeah, there are definitely some extra pounds that have shown up. Time for these uninvited guests to go!


Just some of our food prep

So starting today I’m doing Beachbody’s 3-day Refresh. The program’s a combination of protein shakes, lots of fresh fruits and vegetables, and healthy fats. The goal is to help re-set your eating habits and maybe drop a couple of pounds.

After reviewing the program, I liked that this doesn’t look a “starvation” plan, and that there’s lots of real food involved. I’ve even convinced my husband J to do the program with me! I’ll let you know how it goes…

What do you do when you find your eating gotten off track?

*I am in no way affiliated with Beachbody – I purchased the 3-day Refresh, and all opinions expressed here, as always are my own.



  1. I know it can sound so trite 🙂 but it’s what I do here.
    For me it really is reminding myself I’m never as far from my track 🙂 as my very next action or bite

    • Not trite at all Carla – each of those small choices you can make lead you back to path you want to be on. I’m just feeling the need for a big kick in the pants…we’ll see how this goes 😉

  2. i’ve done juice cleanses before for similar reasons – to help myself get rid of crazy cravings. good luck – can’t wait to hear about it!

  3. All the best with the Refresh! I find myself in a similar boat. Busy leads to lack of meal planning leads to mindless eating. I refresh by cutting way back on sugar and focusing on whole, nutrient-dense foods.

  4. Good luck with the reset. I’ve never tried one b/c I am scared I would die of hunger! Let us know how it goes.

  5. I’m looking forward to reading all about your refresh review. Detox tea, along with consistent meal prep and planning it usually how I refresh after a few days of unhealthy eating.

  6. Interested to see how that goes and what you actually eat. I don’t weigh myself anymore but I am feeling a little off

  7. Yeah, I’m off track too. I try to cut out my late night snacking because that’s usually the culprit. I’m interested to hear how your refresh goes.

  8. I’m probably due for a refresh myself! I see the dietitian tomorrow and I don’t think it’ll be good news…sounds like a balanced way to shed a couple of pounds!

  10. I just try to get back to basics. More fruits and veggies. Less chips and cookies. It’s harder than it sounds!
