Week #1: The 21 Day Ultimate Reset
I am officially done with the first week of the Reset, today is day 8 and I’m on to week #2. Week 1 went by really fast and I really enjoyed almost every single meal. I wasn’t completely thrilled with the zucchini cashew soup, most people love it, but it wasnt my favorite – but everything else YUMMO! When the 21 days are up, I will still be implementing some of these recipes in my regular routine.
I have realized I CAN cook, I am not so horrible after all – even if I do have to Google what a Yam is – don’t laugh, I now know it is a sweet potato I also had to Google a few other things, but I am getting this down.
Beachbody is a genius with this program, with the online support thru Facebook and a participant portal where you can get all the recipes on the go, get week by week grocery shopping lists and just a place to get questions answered – the support is unlimited. I have been found running around Whole Foods like a chicken with my head cut off looking for specific things that I can’t even pronounce, but now I feel like a pro in there – I could map it out with my eyes closed haha!
So far I have lost 6 pounds, most might be water weight, but WOW do I feel good. I have found myself getting rid of emotional baggage that I have been holding onto. I feel like I am cleansing my soul as well as my body – its like a full body oil change – LOVE IT! I have also had some wild dreams, very vivid and funny. I feel like I can taste and smell so much better, I am seeing things clearer and I notice the small things. On days 3-5 I noticed around 3 or 4pm everyday I would get tired and almost a crashing feeling, but now I am snapped out of it and feel my energy coming back – I want to go back to my workout routine so bad, but I know I have to wait it out. So I have been doing light yoga and pilates to keep me sane – it has been very relaxing and calming.
I have already scoped out this week’s meal plan and I AM STOKED – I cant wait to try some of the new recipes and foods. I am no longer eating any meats, dairy or eggs – I can honestly say I dont really miss it…transitioning out of those foods the first week wasnt hard at all, it was so smooth that I didnt realize that I wasnt eating it.
So that is my first week testimony, I look forward to week #2 and changes that are to come!
