Isagenix Day 6: It Comes In Chocolate Too!


I needed to switch things up a little bit for today.  I decided to add a tablespoon of unsweetened cocoa to my afternoon Isagenix smoothie.  It only adds around 10 calories to the drink.  As I predicted, my weight loss stagnated today.  I gained .2 pounds this morning, not a huge deal.  I am still very happy to be down nearly 8 pounds.  This weekend is going to be quite challenging though.  Tomorrow is my son’s birthday party.  I won’t be able to bring a shake with me to the party, but I will be able to bring a meal replacement bar.  It’s going to take a lot to resist pizza and cake.  Sunday won’t be too bad though.

Besides the weight loss, the other thing that utterly amazes me about this diet is my grocery bill.  I poo-pooed Julie when she told me that my grocery bill would go down.  The first week, I spent $220 on groceries, but it was because we had just returned from Orlando.  This week, my groceries were under $160!  I have been spending upwards of $250-260 on groceries each week.  Not only am I not buying breakfasts and lunches that I normally buy.  I am buying far less total food.  Most of my groceries were on the outside of the grocery store.  I hope that I can continue this after the 30-days is up.  I don’t think I’m going to do a full-up deep cleanse next month for four days next month.  As of right now, my plan is to drink a shake in the morning, eat the snacks in the mid-morning, add a low calorie fruit/vegetable heavy meal in the afternoon, eat fruit as a mid-day snack, and eat a 400-600 calorie evening meal.  I plan to allow myself a few more cheat days– including a glass or two of wine, and some dessert.  So I am making a list of what I need for next month.

So here’s today’s stats:

Weight: 142.7

Early AM: 1 ounce Ionix Drink, 16 oz of water
AM: Vanilla Flavored Shake
Mid-morning snack: Chocolate snack
Lunch: Vanilla Shake with 1 TBSP Cocoa
Mid-Afternoon snack: Apple
Dinner: Baked Chicken Breast with Gluten Free Mac and Cheese and Broccoli
Before Bed: Flush Tablet
