Day 3 & 4 of my Isagenix cleanse !!


I just completed my 3rd and 4th day on my Isagenix cleanse. I started at 114lbs and I did get down to 110.4lbs yesterday but then went out for dinner ( oops ) and even though I ate very little, the scale this morning says 111.6lbs. STILL- 3lbs less in 4 days and Im only trying to lose about 5-7lbs tops so it was ok for me.

Day 3 
I woke up and made my juice cleanse.
9am-I mixed a handful of ice cubes with 8oz of water, added my 2 scoops of cleanse for life ( I got the power form instead of the juice form because the juice needs to be refrigerated) and then I put it all in my magic bullet blender and drank right out of the cup. Isagenix also sells a great blender so if you need one I recommend one of the 2 for sure; they are so easy! Also took my accelerator pill


























Isagenix Snacks



11am- I set my alarm to remind me to eat a snack 2 hours later. I try my best to stay on schedule. I also drank 1 bottle of water

1pm- Juice number 2.  

130pm- I had 2 of the IsaDelight plus chocolates that Isagenix says you can have 30 min before your Isagenix snacks- so I took this opportunity to indulge lol.
-- The IsaDelights are  filled with amino acids and can help curb your cravings. They come in both dark and milk chocolate.


2pm- I had 2 isagenix snacks and a full bottle of water.

4pm- 3rd Juice and took an accelerator pill

530pm- 2 more IsaDelights Chocolates

6pm- 2 snacks and a full glass of water

8pm- 4th and last juice for the day!

Its important to keep yourself busy. After this juice day I went back to Isagenix and ordered a bunch of their approved snacks for the shake day. Im not gonna lie, I so badly wanted to eat on the juice day, I got hungry quite a few times during the day and was so tempted. I read just now that you can have a few small slices of apple or pear- which would have helped a lot. The only thing that motivated me ws actually seeing a difference.

Here are my measurements on day 3:

Height- 5'6"
Weight- 111.2lbs

Neck- 11.7"
Upper Arm (L)- 9.2"
Upper Arm (R)-9.2"
Bust- 31"
Diaphragm (Rib Cage)- 25.5"
Waist- 23.5"
Abdomen- 30.5"
Buttocks- 34.5"
Upper Thigh (L)- 18.5"
Upper Thigh (R)- 18.5"
Calf (L&R)- 12.5"
Upper Knee (L&R)- 13.5"
Total inches- 264.5
Inches lost since start- 7.8"

Heres what I started with

Day 3
Im super happy with the results I'm seeing so far. Even my skin is looking better. I still have 6 days left on my actual cleanse because the first 2 shake days were only prep days. But even still, in those first 2 shake days I saw a difference and lost weight.

Day 4-
So day 3 was good for me, I stayed home, I painted, I worked in my office ran to the post office... nothing strenuous. Well, day 4 I had planned on seeing my trainer. I was feeling good, looking good and excited to get into the gym. BIG MISTAKE! I was trying to lift and squat and do all the normal exercises I do every week, but I just had no energy. My ears kept getting clogged, my legs were shaking.. I normally for 3 sets per exercise and after the first round I was pretty much giving up. I should have just went and did a bunch of cardio. I told my trainer Lauren Kern that I think Im going to end my session early today; she couldn't even believe it. Instead of quitting she lowered all my weights and made me finish. Im happy I did but I just wanted to say how I felt working out hard on my cleanse day because someone had asked me for my opinion.

After the gym I had to run some errands and got pretty tied up. By the time I got home I was starving so I cheated and ate 1 tofu chicken patty.. It was my own fault for doing to much and not staying on schedule.  Anway, 30 minuted after that I picked back up with my juice and carried on.... Until my husband came home and wanted to go for dinner... Which I did. I had 4 pieces of salmon sashimi and some brown rice. But I still have 6 days left and am doing so good already so I allowed myself to go, but I wasn't happy about it...

Day 5- Back to business 
















Today I'm back on to my shake day and Im super excited. This is something I see myself doing even when Im not cleansing hardcore. I really enjoy the shakes and believe its detoxing my body and helping me lose weight. I got my husband to finally try the shakes and he couldn't believe how good it was. He told me he felt really "clean" and energized and the shake filled him up enough that he didn't want or need to eat anything else; and for my husband thats a really good sign.
I did have a training session booked for today but I decided to cancel and try Pilates for the first time with my friend Paula. Im hoping it will be a lot easier than lifting was yesterday.
Its currently 830am here in california and I am going to drink a glass of water now and then at 9am have my first shake!!!
Im super excited because today my 2nd order from Isagenix should arrive. I went back and ordered a bunch more of their products which Ill list below. I should have just got the presidents pak and split it with my husband, then we would have had all the goodies and saved money. Note for next time!

For those of you who are just reading this and contemplating ordering this product, make sure that you sign up so you can purchase at wholesale prices. Signing up means that if you tell your friends and they want the product too, you give them your link that is automatically made with your name after you sign up, and then you make money off of their order. And if they sign up as well , they can purchase at wholesale prices, tell their friends and make money too. 
Just because you sign up does not mean you have to get autoship. You pay either $29 or $39 for the year and thats it. If you want products shipped automatically every month then select autoship and save an extra 10%, but if you don't there is that option as well. Wholesale prices are about $100 less than retail, and you have the ability just by sharing your success story to others, to turn it into a business. We can all be on a team together helping each other out.
Isagenix does not spend money on advertising, that is why they are not sold in stores. It has grown the way it has strictly because of word of mouth. And because it doesn't advertise it spends more money on making its products phenomenal.  Its a win win situation. I do not blog about anything that I do not personally believe in. I do not get paid and I am not endorsed by any of these products- I am sharing them and my story and experience because I believe in this product and want you to look and feel your best well; plain and simple.

Heres how to Purchase

Step 1

Step 2

Step 3

 I clicked the one with the arrow. I did not want auto ship because I ordered so much to start out with. The associate account lets you have a website that looks just like mine with your name and everything. By clicking sign up and save you automatically join my team.

If you have any questions you can email me at Jenniferstano@gmail.com or call / email my cousin Jeanine at  631-624-1322    jeaninecozzetti@yahoo.com

I joined my cousins team and she works with Isagenix full time and can answer any questions you have about this product. Jeanine and I have also been doing conference calls with girls and Jeanines friend Lisa who also works with Isagenix.

We hope to hear from you soon.
Have Faith Swimgerie photoshoot with my babies.

If you believe in yourself, anything is possible.

Day 1 & 2 of my Isagenix Cleanse !!!

I cannot wait for summer to come, but between traveling and getting over the Holidays, I am not 100%  bikini ready yet. Two years ago I did a cleanse called Isagenix that helped me jump start my weight loss after gaining 10lbs due to stress and a move cross country , as well as motivate me to keep working hard. After my blog post a ton of people, both guys and girls, reached out to me on how they could purchase Isagenix since it is not sold in stores. At the time I had gotten it from a friend as a birthday gift but she couldn't get them anymore so I didn't have any answers. After feeling the need to do this cleanse again to prepare for a photo shoot and summer I reached out to some of my family members who just started taking this product and purchased it through them. I then went ahead and signed myself up to become an associate of the company so you can order through me directly!!!









Isagenix

Because I want to lose anywhere from 5-7 lbs I ordered the 9 Cleanse system for me, my friend Jilly and an extra one just to have. Then I ordered the 30 Day cleanse for my husband and for my Aunt because they want to lose about 15-20+ lbs.


Presidents Pak:
This Isagenix best value, biggest seller and most popular pak because it includes free membership, an entire 30 Day Cleansing and Fat Burning System PLUS:
1 Ageless Essentials Vitamins™ with Product B
1 30-count box of IsaDelight Plus™
1 10-count box of Chocolate Cream Crisp IsaLean® Bars
3 5-Piece Sample Paks
1 IsaFruits® packet
1 Isagenix Greens Packet
IsaBlender®
$50 Isagenix event coupon

9 Day Deep Cleansing and Fat Burning System:
The five nutritional components of the system help you cleanse while infusing your body with premium nutrients for optimum health and safe weight loss

30 Day Cleansing and Fat Burning System:
 This system is designed to gently rid the body of potentially harmful impurities, while infusing it with essential vitamins, botanicals and other natural ingredients to help shed pounds naturally without the use laxatives, stimulants or diuretics. This is for people who want to lose 15 - 40lbs in a month. 


 I love that practically my entire family is on this product and none of us knew that we had all tried it or were currently using it until recently.   My husband is starting his cleanse tomorrow.. I started my cleanse yesterday, my cousin Jeanette started her 9 day cleanse 7 days ago and lost 7 lbs in 7 days so far and my other cousin Jeanine is doing the 30 day cleanse and has had incredible results already. I asked her to write me a little bit about her experience so far and here is what she had to say:

"30 Day Cleansing System: I started at 127lbs and in just 5 days I've released 5 pounds, lost 2 inches on my thighs and 2 inches in my waist. The energy I feel is amazing and have lost my desire for caffeine completely, which for me was a shocker because I am a HUGE Starbucks drinker. It's amazing the difference I see and feel just 5 days in. Excited to see what the rest of the 24 days hold!
 My goal weight is 105-110"

I want to blog the entire 9 days of my cleanse and share my experience and results. It won't be easy, but it will be worth it- I know from experience! I also found out that a lot of fitness girls have started to take Isagenix which makes me really excited because I wanted to compete again this year in a NPC bikini competition. Isagenix came out with an Athletes package which I may look into after my 9 day cleanse is finished.


About the Cleanses
Presidents Pak:
I wish I had gotten this pak instead of just the 9 day cleanse. In 2 days Im totally addicted. The Presidents pak is like a value pak and I could have shared it with my friend Jilly or my husband and had everything the 9 day cleanse had PLUS all the goodies that go with it. It is everything you need to get the body you want for summer and maintain it. Now Im going back and ordering the isagenix bars, product B and so on and costing me so much more. 



Perfect to split with a friend, boy/girl friend or spouse.


30 Day Cleanse
Losing weight doesn’t always have to be hectic and extreme. With the Isagenix 30 Day Cleanse system, you can lose without worrying of overdoing it. The system was formulated to allow every individual achieve a once a week cleansing while enjoying 2 shakes as well 1 meal for the entire week.

The Isagenix 30 Day Cleanse System also incorporates the supplements of cleansing nutrients such as vitamins, herbal teas, ionic trace, and aloe. These nutrients are fed to the body to motivate natural burning of fat. It doesn’t contain any kind of stimulants. This is definitely a good chance to build muscle and enhance mental clarity.
How does this program work well for cleansing? Great results are achieved because of its product combination. Isagenix offers several products that aims to provide a healthy living for those who intake it. With the Isagenix 30 Day system, a participant is given several products that are to be used on the entire program: Ionix Supreme (1 bottle), Cleanse for life (2 bottles), Isalean Shake (4 canisters), Isagenix snacks (1 bottle), Natural Accelerator Capsules (1 bottle), Isaflush (1 bottle), Single Want More Energy (2), Single Isadelight Chocolates (2), Instructions Manual (1), and a Cleanse for Life DVD (1).


( The 30 day cleanse is basically two 9 day cleanses in 1- plus a few extra goodies. If you're thinking of doing the 9 day, I would upgrade to the 30 day and split it up so you have more the next time you need a quick boost )

DAY 1!!! 
I tried to eat every 2 hours
9am-9:30am Today when I woke up I drank 1 bottle of water. Then I waited about 30minutes and made my first "meal"- My Isalean Vanilla shake and took my Accelorator. 
I bought myself the "bullet" blender from Bed Bath & Beyond. I added a hand full of ice cubes and then added enough water to equal 8oz. I put that in my bullet and then added 2 scoops of my shake and then blended. (Isagenix sells a blender as well.)

11:30am- For a mid-morning snack I ate 2 of the green tea chocolates " Isadelights plus" also from Isagenix.

1:30pm- This is my main meal on shake days. I had 3 small pieces of ahi tuna and a side of avocado with tomatoes.

3:30pm-Mid- Afternoon Snack- I had 2 of the "Isagenix snacks" that came with my 9 day cleanse and took another accelerator pill.

6:00pm- "Dinner"- Shake number 2. ( same as above )

So far I feel really great. Maybe a little cranky but I felt so focused and energized this morning after my first shake. With the meal plan it lists options that you can eat as your Mid- morning and Mid- afternoon snacks which is nice if you get bored easily because then you can switch it up.

Tomorrow is will be my second shake day and then I start my cleanse.
The 9 day cleanse is pretty intense, thats why I got the 30 day cleanse for my husband. You can choose how many "juice" days you want and customize the cleanse a lot more than you can with the 9 day cleanse. He's really excited to start it because he wants to lose about 15 lbs and feel healthier overall.

Day 2 !!!


I woke up at 9:00am this morning because I had a 10am training session. I again had a full glass of water, waited about 30 minutes and then had my first shake.

I went to the gym, worked out for an hour, came home and got to choose what I wanted for a mid-morning snack. I decided to go with the cleanse for life juice which comes with your 9 day cleanse. ( Its the juice you drink on your cleanse days)

For lunch I had tunafish mixed with cranberries and 1 teaspoon sunflower "mayo", 4 ritz crackers and a bottle of water.

Mid-afternoon snack I had 2 of the "snacks" that come in your 9 day cleanse. And then for dinner I'll have my 2nd shake for the day!

I may end up doing some cardio, crunches and some squats later on as well;I have a good amount of energy after the shakes!

Tomorrow is my cleanse day so Ill probably only go to the gym to do cardio and not lift since Ill be drinking just juice all day.

This whole process is also a lot easier when you have a friend or family member doing it with you- but I promise you will see results and won't be disappointed!

My Inspiration and Goals
When I first got into fitness I was 21 years old. I signed my first big endorsement with a supplement company called Met-Rx later working with BSN and STS supplements and competing in the NPC - (National Physique Committee)  placing 2nd my first competition.


My Inspiration!!!
 Jennifer Nicole Lee is a HUGE fitness model and has been on Oprah, tons of covers etc. The first time I ever saw her was on the cover of Fitness Rx magazine I think back in 2006; I still have that exact magazine to this day. She has an amazing body , she's thin but has shape; not too skinny, she looks healthy and is toned. I have just always loved her and her look; She has always been an inspiration to me. Not to mention she is in her mid - late 30's and a mother of 2!!
 I hope these pictures also inspire you  <3

She has amazing legs





This is perfection to me.
