Isagenix Shake Days #1 - Program Day 5
So this marks the 5th day of my program. Since this is technically Day 3 of the 9 day cleanse, I'm going to do an update on my vital stats. Today is also the first day of 5 shake days. I'm so glad my Chocolate Shake mix arrived yesterday. That vanilla crap was horrid. I had one this morning, and it wasn't bad. It wasn't good, so maybe I'll just say far more bearable than the Vanilla.
Weight: 171 pounds (Decrease of 8 lbs from start and 1 lb from last check)
Body Mass Index (BMI): 25.25 25.4 (Decrease of 1.18 from start and 0.15 from last check)
Total Inches: 325.0 inches (Decrease of 15.7 inches from start and 0.5 inches from last check)
Neck: 14.0 inches (Decrease of 0.5 inches from start and 0.3 inches from last check)
Upper Arm L/R: 12.0 / 12.2 (Decrease of 0.4 / 0.7 inches from start and 0.0 / 0.1 inches from last check)
Chest: 37.0 (Increase of 0.3 inches so back to start size)
Diaphragm: 33.9 inches (No change from start, but Increase of 0.3 inches from last check)
Waist: 32 inches (Decrease of 3.4 inches from start and 0.4 inches from last check)
Adbomen 6" Below Waist: 34.4 inches (Inrease of 1.0 inch from last check for a total loss of 2.4 inches from start)
Buttocks 9" Below Waist: 40.4 inches (Increase of 0.2 inches from last from last check for a decrease of 0.6 inches from start)
Upper Thigh L/R: 23.4 / 23.2 inches 24.0 / 23.9 inches (Decrease of 2.1 / 2.3 inches from start and 0.6 / 0.7 inches from last check)
Calf L/R: 15.0 / 15.4 14.9 / 14.9 inches (Increase of 0.1 / 0.5 over last check for a total Decrease of 0.4 / 0.0 inches from start)
Upper Knee L/R: 16.0/16.5 inches (Decrease of 0.0 / 0.5 inches from last check and start)
So overall, it doesn't look like things changed a whole lot. Those tiny fractions of an inch here and there that increased and decreased could pretty much be a wash. Trying to measure the exact same place on a body doesn't always happen. The biggest achievement has been losing that extra pound, bringing me down to 171 lbs. Apparently, these next 5 shake days are when the extra inches start coming off. I can't wait because I have a winter wardrobe to reclaim.
Overall, this morning, I feel pretty good. I got to bed late, but I still have a pretty reasonable level of energy. Getting quite a bit done around the office, all without the need for coffee. No caffeine headaches at all. Gonna go for a run after lunch and my reasonable meal. I have a Salmon Salad leftover from last day that I have been dying to dig into.
