Well it's officially the end of day 3!! I can now say that some weird things are happening to me today!
First I am freezing! Not all the time but it comes and goes. It is like my body temperature is changing, very unusual. I read that it is supposed to happen so I'm just bundling up! Yesterday I was working and had on a sweater, fuzzy socks, scarf and a jacket while sitting at my computer! Very attractive, let me tell you! Then, I started having these weird muscle aches that come and go. Right now it's my entire back, my wrist and now my calves. It's actually all the toxins being pulled from your body and that can last 1-2 days. So I'm trying to just bear with it, but it is rather uncomfortable.
Now energy wise I feel great! I didn't even have the urge to take a nap today. Let me tell you, that doesn't happen very often!! I am absolutely someone who loves an afternoon nap! Also, I haven't been hungry at all today! I actually wasn't even hungry for an evening snack either! So it's a bonus!!!!
Also, I weighed myself last night just for giggles and I am down 4 lbs. Let me tell you I am not doing this for the weight loss by any means, absolutely 100% for the health benefits! But for someone who is looking to lose weight, this is a great start!
So I am all about sharing awesome meals and recipes because that is my thing! The ultimate reset is like the motherload of the most amazing clean eating recipes that you can find!! One of our favorite fish is salmon. The first night of the reset was Baked Salmon in this amazing marinade. I want to share it with you because it is just that good! You can also marinate chicken in this as well. I fed this meal to my entire family and they loved it!
1 clove garlic, minced
2 tsp, extra virgin olive oil
1 tbsp fresh chopped basil
1/4 tsp himalayan salt (pink)
1/2 tsp herbal seasoning
1 tbsp lemon juice
1 tbsp chopped fresh parsley
1 6 0z salmon fillet
In a medium glass bowl, prepare marinade by mixing garlic, oil, basil, salt, seasoning, lemon juice, and parsley. Place salmon in a medium glass baking dish and cover with marinade. Marinate in the refrigerator about 1 hour, turning occasionally.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place fillet in aluminum foil, cover with marinade, and seal. Return sealed salmon to dish and bake 20 minutes, or until easily flaked with a fork. Serves 1.
I just doubled the batch for 2 adults and 2 kids.
I served with 1 cup steamed asparagus and 3/4 cup boiled baby red potatoes!
Meals for the day!!
Breakfast was 2 3eggs, steamed spinach and 2 pieces of whole grain toast.
Lunch was a microgreens salad and the lentil lime salad (not my favorite).
Before your snack and every meal you have to take supplements. Not a ton, but a few to help your body detox. this weeks afternoon supplement is the Alkalinize! I did a pretty little video for you so you can get a glimpse into what it's like! It looks worse than it really is!
My tip for the Alkalinize is to take an empty water bottle, pour in the Alkalinize and distilled water and shake the crap out of it! It takes the grittiness away and is so much easier to drink!! Remember pinch your nose and close your eyes, bottoms up!!!
Snack was 1 apple and 12 almonds
Dinner was Nori Rolls, Japanese Cucumber Salad and Miso Soup.
And lots of water!!!! I drank an entire gallon and then some yesterday!!
It was 9:30 and my husband put the kids to bed, he came downstairs and told me that my warm epsom salt bath was ready to go! What a sweet husband! It totally helped to soothe my achy muscles and just relax a little! The whole point of the reset is to stop and just take life in, slow down and listen to your body. So that is my focus for the next 19 days.
I can't wait to share the rest of my journey with you as well, until tomorrow....Commit to Being Fit!!!
Thinking about doing the Ultimate Reset? I would be glad to mentor you along in the process! Add me as your Coach and we can talk about whether or not the Reset is right for you!
