Day 4-7 of the Advocare 24-day challenge is considered Phase 2 of the Cleanse.
Phase 2 of the Cleanse does not include the Fiber Drink! HOORAY!!
It’s pretty similar to Phase 1:
Wake up – Take 3 Catalyst, Probiotic Restore Packet
3 Catalyst 30 minutes before lunch
Spark with snack
Dinner with 4 OmegaPlex
Herbal Cleanse Packet
I followed the same food plan as Phase 1. I don’t branch out all that often with food, some might say I’m picky. I don’t get it.
I was able to eat out. I went to Applebee’s with my mom. I ordered a sirloin steak, rice and broccoli. I split the sirloin and only had half at the restaurant. The other half was for dinner the next time. It was actually pretty simple to find something on the menu that fit with the meal plan. I also had a work lunch with lasagna, fried chicken, mashed potatoes. I filled 1/2 my plate with salad. Then I chose the chicken and removed the skin. I might have also added a dab on mashed potatoes. But no cookie or brownie.
I’m kicking the Diet Coke. I no longer have any in the house. If I want one, I have to go and get it. I’ve learned that I wasn’t as addicted as I thought. I was more paranoid of the migraine that I always tend to get when I don’t have any caffeine. Well, so far no migraine. I believe I’ve gone 48 hours without a Diet Coke. For me, that is totally impressive. I’m going to continue to work them out. Hopefully in the next month or so, they will be a treat not a need.
I had a few missteps this phase. A dear friend of mine lost her mother unexpectedly and it hit me pretty hard. I had known her mom because she was my roommate and pledge sister in college. I saw her at wedding and baby showers. It wasn’t like she was a huge part of my life. I guess I just feel we’re too young to be losing parents. Anyway, I had cookies. I can’t say that I felt better but I had cookies.
Overall, pretty uneventful! I’ll share the results in Phase 3….stay tuned….
