As you can probably tell, I’ve been posting a lot through Instagram lately. This is mainly because I really only use my iPhone or iPad so I’m ALWAYS on Instagram! Feel free to follow me on Instagram! I will, of course, still post all the Instagram pictures on here :)
Hope everyone is having a great Wednesday! It’s almost Friday! Going to Body Pump tonight then making my zucchini boats for dinner! I’ll be posting my recipe later tonight! :)
Sooooo I’ve pretty much gave up on the GM’s Cleanse. I didn’t find it a very nutritional way to cleanse and it really wasn’t sufficing my personal needs. I have lost 3 pounds since the start of the cleanse 5 days ago! The one thing I did like about it was the first 3 days you ate either just fruits, just veggies, or both. Obviously since I was forced to I really focused on eating those foods. I realized that I should purchase more fruits and veggies and instead of buying fast food at school, I should just bring healthy foods. I’ve always thought like this but I’ve just been too lazy, when it really takes no time at all to prepare my meals the day before.
Overall, I would NOT recommend this cleanse. I would recommend trying it, but definitely which modifying it to fit your personal needs. I personally added protein each day since I am a dance major and I walk 2 miles each day at school. But just to do the cleanse and nothing else, I do not recommend it.
Day was yesterday but I was so tired when I got off of work I didn’t write my daily summery! So I was really looking forward to Day 4 (bananas and milk day) because I had been looking at the bananas on the fridge just wanted one so bad the first three days! Sadly, my bananas were a little too ripe so they didn’t taste the way I like them too.
I still ate 2 for breakfast, with a glass of milk, Then for lunch I had a Turkey Thin and chocolate milk from Einstein Bros Bagels (see my picture from yesterday), then for dinner I had 3 more bananas, and a side salad with vinaigrette dressing. Overall, not a bad day. I stayed under my caloric limit, but I didn’t go to the gym. I haven’t been all week since they messed up my schedule at work and I had to teach a dance private on Monday.
I’m going to figure out a new gym schedule for me to work around my schedule, I’ll probably be posting that soon too! Does anyone else have a busy schedule? How do you work around your schedule for gym time?
So day 3 (fruits and veggies) is done! I can say I did pretty horrible today :/ Not too proud of myself. I started out with a toaster scramble, so I hopefully wouldn’t get tired of the fruits and veggies. It worked for a while, at lunch I ate Just for One corn and Just for One broccoli with cucumbers and carrots. For a snack I had a cup of grapes. I’m a dance major so I go to dance class everyday, which normally I count that as light intensity, but today I counted it as moderate intensity cause I worked up a major sweat! So I felt better about missing the gym yesterday!
For those of you who don’t know, I am currently working two jobs, one of which is a nanny for a 10 year old boy. When I got to his house after school I was starving, and I really wanted some protein so I heated up a turkey burger patty with provolone cheese and ate that. Not tooooo bad right?
Well, I get to my other job (I’m a server/bartender at a bowling center), where I am constantly moving and running around serving people. I started to get a little hungry so I drank a big glass of water and kept working. But then…it happened…I smelled…THE WINGS O.O Yep, I was bringing lane 24 his boneless hot wings and man, did they smell good! I made a comment to the cook of how good they looked, then he made me some for free…so I HAD to eat them ;( Again, I’m not too proud of myself, but it made me feel better than even after I entered ALL the food I ate in my Lose It! app, I was still under 300 calories!
Tomorrow is banana and milk day, which I’m pretty sure might be the first day that I actually eat exactly that! I am also going to try and go to the gym in the morning BEFORE I go to school since I’ve missed today and yesterdays workouts because of school and work :/
So today was day 2 of GM Cleanse: Veggie Day!
Today was MUCH easier than yesterday! I had the baked potato for breakfast—broccolli, cucumbers, and carrots for lunch—and corn, cucumbers and carrots for dinner. I also ate a toaster scramble, for some added protein.
I don’t really know if this is the best cleanse, but I really do like how this is making me eat more fruits and veggies! I’m filling up throughout the day and I’m eating half the calories as usual! We will see how the rest of the week goes! :)
I’m looking for more health inspired instagrams! So reply with your username and I will follow you!

I found this cleanse on this blog through Pinterest!
So today was my first day of the GM’s cleanse (and if you don’t know what that is, look at my next post ;P). Day one is all fruits! I thought this would be the easiest day considering how much I love fruit, but it was actually pretty difficult.
I started off with watermelon for breakfast, then continued to eat grapes and an apple throughout the day. At around 2:00 I just wanted something WARM. I did not want to put another cold piece of fruit in my mouth. I figured it wouldn’t kill me to eat some broccoli, so I steamed up some broccoli and had that.
I thought about what I would bring to work for dinner and the thought of more grapes disgusted me, but I put a cup in a baggy anyways. It wasn’t until I got to work I realized I could not eat anymore fruit. Not only did the thought make me want to gag, but I realized I hadn’t had an protein for the day. So for dinner I ate a kids hamburger with strawberries.
I was a little disappointed in myself since day one didn’t really go to plan, but then I remembered that this was my first day. I also felt a lot better when I realized I still only ate 1,048 calories, which is still 293 under budget for me!
Tomorrow is veggie day! Hope this one goes a little better!
