advocare cleanse {day 6}

I found a description online and thought it described The Advocare Cleanse well for those of you who might not really know what Advocare is........
The 3 Components of Advocare's Herbal Cleanse Box 1. Fiber Drink: is like taking the”lint off the lint trap” after every load of laundry! It gently cleanses, allowing heat to transfer so your metabolism is raised, which is necessary to burn fat!
2. Herbal Cleanse Tablets: is like an “S.O.S.” pad - more deeply cleansing the intestines and colon.
3. Probiotic: Probiotics are good bacteria, these are the highest quality on the market – formulated to survive through the hostile environment of the low PH/high acidic stomach, so it can make it safely to the large & small intestines where it needs to be to kill the bad bacteria. Probiotics metabolize toxins & carry them out of your system! Probiotics also metabolize vitamins for your body! 

My friend Allie made this handy dandy sheet to remind us which things we need to take each day.
We are both still truckin' along with the cleanse.  We are feeling pretty good, losing some weight, but I have to be honest.......we both have some pretty funny cravings.  Matt came home from work today wishing he could have some biscuits and gravy and I can't stop thinking about a peanut butter shake from Sonic.  I haven't even had one before but it just sounds good and I can't get my mind off of it!!  We may or may not celebrate the completion of our cleanse with Sausage Gravy & Biscuits for breakfast on Saturday and a Peanut Butter Shake from Sonic. But then it's back on track with healthy eating before we totally blow it on our cruise in a few weeks!!!

Anyways, here's what we ate today......

For breakfast....
{Scrambled Eggs with Sausage & Whole Wheat Toast}
 I was out an about all morning so I didn't have a morning snack.  I was starving when I got home so this lunch hit the spot!! 
{Leftover Oven Baked Fajitas over a Whole Wheat Tortilla & a Cutie}
We spent the afternoon at the pool, but I came prepared with healthy snacks.  I munch on an apple and some almonds and drank lots of water. 

For dinner, we grilled out again!!
{Shrimp & Veggie Kabobs and leftover Sweet Potatoes}
And it's possible that we might have had another fried banana drizzle with almond butter.

6 days down......only 4 to go!!
