I had heard of the Ultimate Reset. I had seen before and afters but I had never considered doing it myself. WHy? Its 21 days! lol I'm also a TERRIBLE cook and the thought of making someone elses recipes for three weeks scared me a little bit. But I'm getting ahead of myself!
I got inspired by my friend Tina! She did the Ultimate Reset in October and though her trasformation was INCREDIBLE, it was her success with overcoming nutrition obstacles that spoke to me. I have been struggling! We moved to Colorado in July and though I love it here, Ive been homesick. Ive been struggling with old habits that I thought were long gone and though Ive fought against it, I was just tired of feeling the constant pull. After hearing her story, I was all in!
What IS the Ultimate Reset? It's a full body reboot! Even though the body is extremely resilient, our bodies have been pushed to the limit by pollution, pesticides, preservatives, and chemicals contained in nearly every item that makes up our modern world. These harmful items can disrupt the normal function of our bodies, which, in turn, can result in reduced energy, weight gain, and a weaker immune system. The Ultimate Reset eill improve energy, improve digestion, improve sleep, improve mood, and help you lose weight!
The kit comes with 6 supplements: Optimize, Soothe, Revitalize, Power Greens, Detox, and Mineralize and a detailed book that contains each step of the detox inclusing recipes for breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks for the entire 21 days!
I was nervous, like I said, especially since my hubby decided to join me! The man loves meat and sugar and I knew this would be a challenge for him so I wanted to prepare the food well. However, for the most part, the recipes were delicious! Seriously! We had added more than a few to our regular rotation! It was fun to learn how to prepare vegetables in different ways and it also challenged me to think outside the box with meals as well.
The first week wasn't very hard, it was actually more food than we were used to eating and the first two days we had proteins. The second week was pretty easy because it was a lot of HUGE salads and we were still eating grains. The last week was the hardest week for both of us. It was less food and so many veggies, but it was never really HARD. We would have just preferred to have more variety of foods.
Surprisingly, I didn't struggle with my cravings. I felt empowered. The NEED for some of the things I fall captive to just went away. I became aware of emotional triggers, both those I knew existed and some that shocked me. It ended up being a physical, emotional, and even spiritual cleansing. I think EVERYONE should do this at some point. If you struggle with getting your nutrition under control or if you struggle with emotional eating this will change your life!
We actually got the flu two days in and I thought for sure it would do us in, but we stuck with it and I am so glad! I feel like we are headed into 2017 with a completely different mindset on how we treat our bodies and what we are capable of! Because of the illness, I wasn't able to exercise much. Light exercise is all that is allowed but my plan was to do Tai Cheng the entire time and for the most part I only walked daily. I did lose a little muscle mass but I feel so freed up that I don't even mind! I am ready to dive right in and get started again! If you are interested in doing the Ultimate Reset you can find more information here. If you would like accountability and help with the Reset or with your fitness journey please feel free to message me! We have an amazing community of women that lift one another up and help each other succeed. My journey would not be as successful without them!
I started the Monday after Thansgiving so I had a little more weight on me than I susually do so it was a good time to start! I lost 9.5 pounds ( My hubby lost 14 pounds!) on the Ultimate Reset and gained a world of freedom! I have no regrets and would ABSOLUTELY do it again!
