Well I have officially completed day 1 of the Ultimate Reset. It wasn't as bad as I thought it would be but I also started the Reset on a day when I was already super busy with Super Saturday. That is our quarterly Beachbody Meeting in which the Pittsburgh Team hosted Celebrity Trainer and Les Mills Combat Master Trainer, Joel Freeman. I can say that the workout was fantastic and the energy was amazing!! Unfortunately, I was not supposed to workout, but shhhh I did anyways!
During the Reset you are supposed to be letting your body heal and restore. It is important to take the time to focus on you health and nutrition instead of your energy going to repairing your muscles. The good thing is that it was only day 1, so I was just starting. From here on out, no exercise! I can honestly say that is going to be very very hard for me to do!! But I promise to follow the rules!
So here's the low down on day 1!
Here are the supplements I have to take each day for week 1!
|week 1 supplement schedule|
Woke up at 5 am, my usual time to get some work done. I held off on breakfast until 7am. So I took my first supplements at 7:00 am. Mineralize, Oxegenize, & Optimize. Then waited 30 minutes before breakfast. Breakfast was 2 slices whole grain toast, 2 scrambled eggs and a generous portion of steamed kale or spinach.
After Breakfast I mixed up my microgreens salad and made the homemade dressing and off to Super Saturday! Beachbody gives you a great little tote to carry all of your supplements so I had everything in one place. I threw in my shaker cup and the vegan shakeology for a snack in the afternoon.
I drank a ton of water but got so busy with the event that I didn't get to eat until 2 pm. Not the best idea but at least I didn't give in and eat something else!! I made it until 2pm and totally enjoyed the salad! It was filling and really good. I could eat that everyday for sure.
I got home about 3 pm and was absolutely exhausted. I drank a huge glass of water and sat down to spend some time with the kids. Everyone hopped on the couch to watch cartoons so I took advantage of it and laid down as well! I took the alkalinize supplement right before laying down. It was green and nasty tasting! But if you hold your nose and close your eyes it's not that bad!!!
So now we are at dinner time. Salmon, steamed asparagus and boiled baby potatoes. Honestly, it is totally how I would of eaten dinner before! The marinate was delicious and the food was filling. I left dinner feeling completely satisfied. I even made the exact same dinner for the rest of the family!! It was awesome!
Now the hard part for me begins!! The evening. This is where I have always struggled. I am a late night snacker through and through. So I got out the decaf, herbal tea (Strawberry Pomegranate) and had a warm cup of tea. That helped to keep me satisfied for a few but my tummy was rumbling. So I got out the apple and 1 tbsp all natural pb and had my snack. I figured that since I didn't eat it in the afternoon I could have it now. It may or may not of been the right thing to do but I was hungry! I actually went to bed before 11 pm and woke up today well rested!! I did have a small headache from the caffeine withdrawal but overall not a bad day!!!

I wanted to give you all a sneak peak of what the menu on the reset looks like. So I am posting a copy of mine for you to check out.
What is the Ultimate Reset?
It is a 21 day cleanse to help you restore your body to normal functioning. In the world that we live in, everything is processed, convenient, high fat and just plain unhealthy. A lifetime of eating poorly has caused us to feel run down and tired constantly. Our bodies can't process food efficiently because they are sorting through the crap first. We live on caffeine to get us through our busy days instead of feeding our bodies good food to give us natural energy. Also, many people are plagued with high blood pressure and cholesterol as well as a body weight that is unhealthy. The cleanse is meant to really teach you a whole new perspective on life. It teaches you how to cook food with flavor and how to eat for energy and satisfaction. It teaches you how to be mindful of the foods you eat and the choices you make! The results vary from drastic weight loss to lowered cholesterol to amazing energy and vibrance!
I am really looking to completely get rid of my caffeine addiction (coffee) and to restore my body from the intense workouts that I do! I really want to aid my digestive system in getting back to normal as well! I can hardly wait to see how the next 21 days play out!! Myself and my challengers are all doing this together and the support we have created is great! I know that with the group of us working together we can make it to the end!!
Stay tuned for more....
I'll keep you posted on today!!
