So I mentioned in my post last week that Bryan and I were starting the Ultimate Reset this week. Today is day one! What IS Ultimate Reset? It's a 21 day program that helps you RECLAIM, RELEASE and RESTORE your body. You follow a vegan diet after the first few days so I was thinking about doing this with my Nutrition Certification, and then when I found out that I was pregnant, my plans derailed. So, with everything I've been through the past few weeks (half marathon, miscarriage), I still feel like this is THE perfect time for me to do this program. It is going to reset my body from the inside out. The nutrition certification that I am doing is plant based, so I might be vegan in a few weeks... (I'm already almost convinced and I am only a little over a week into my first course). So why not PRACTICE, what I am learning? See how I feel and see what results I get?? I am so glad that Bryan has decided to join me on this little, crazy journey. I am also going to be you tubing along the way. When I was researching that's where I ended up and there just isn't a lot of info out there about it. Also, I threw my scale away last week, so I don't have "pre" weight, although I have a pretty good idea where I usually am, and I don't plan to do a "post" weight until I have to go to the doctor for whatever reason and be weighed. I'm done with the scale, that stupid thing DOES NOT define me. I did do pictures and measurements today though! That's a way better way to watch progress!
I filmed a video of an "unboxing" of the Ultimate Reset if you want to see what all comes in the kit. You can check the video out below:
Yesterday I went to Whole Foods to get the rest of my groceries that Walmart didn't have. There are lots of weird things on the meal plan that I've never had/made but I am totally open to trying new things!
Here is today's breakfast: 2 scrambled eggs, steamed spinach and 1 slice of whole grain toast. I also took Optimize and drank 24 oz of water with mineralize 30 minutes before breakfast.
I also prepped our lunch for today, so Bryan could take it to work. It's Miso Soup with a Salad.
The creators of Ultimate Reset also suggest some good personal development during the cleanse. And since I can't workout (I might try some PiYo, or walks in the evening) I am going to use that 30 minutes to sit down with a book. The two that I am starting with are "Simply Tuesday" and "What Women Fear". I have had Simply Tuesday for awhile, but I am glad to dive into it and I have read "What Women Fear" before, and loved it, and I think its perfect for me to reread in this season. I have a feeling I'll be through these books fast, so if you have other book suggestions I'd love to hear them!
I'll be posting youtubes and a diary on my IG about my journey. Mostly for accountability and because when I went looking for info I couldn't find it. If you want to read more you can go through this link. Stay tuned for more info! Happy Thursday! Continue choosing joy my friends, I know I am!
