slim down

3 Day Slim Down

I mentioned a few posts back that I was planning on doing a 5 day slim down to get bikini ready for 4th of July!  At the time it had slipped my mind that I would be in Seattle for vacation the weekend before, so not the best time for dieting.  Anyway, I’m back now and ready to get on track and going to do 3 days instead of the typical 5 or 7.

I have not purchased the Tone It Up Nutrition Plan, but I have a good idea of what goes into the 5 and 7 day Slimdowns.  Basically no dairy and no starches and lots of water, fruits and vegetables.  Here’s what today looked like!

3 Day Slim Down


1 egg and 2 egg white veggie scramble (kale, red onion, tomato) topped with salsa + strawberries


Tall Soy Misto w/ 1 pump hazelnut syrup (from Starbucks)

Boiled Egg

4 steamed shrimp

Handful of grapes


Wendy’s Frosty Protein Shake (with a handful of spinach added in & chocolate almond milk instead of regular)


Frozen stir fry veggies from Trader Joe’s with steamed shrimp.  Added low sodium soy sauce and siracha


Jillian Michaels Killer Abs DVD Level 1

I will probably have tea (with no sweetener) or something like that this evening.  Today has been relatively easy since I woke up late (still on west coast time I guess).  I knew going in to this slim down that no dairy was going to be the hardest part.  I LOVE CHEESE and drink 1/2 and 1/2 in my coffee every single morning.  I prepared for this by planning to eat mostly seafood for lunches and dinners (makes it easier to not eat cheese) and I bought coconut milk coffee creamer that I had tried before and liked.  I’ll try to do posts like these for the remainder of the slim down and I will let you know if I notice any changes in 3 days!

Are you doing anything special to prepare for 4th of July?
