Well, it’s official I am done with the Ultimate Reset!!! It was harder the second time around because I am in this new city and there was always something happening. I would say I was good 93-95% of the time. Week three led to a few slip ups, but it’s okay. I got my eating back on track and I am ready to focus on my workouts. Off to a good start too; I woke up this morning and did T25. It’s awesome! More on that tomorrow.
How did the last four days of the reset go? Pretty well. These were four of the hardest days because I knew it was the end, and because I was hungry all the time. I also worked from home two days last week, and both days I had afternoon slip ups. It’s okay. Again, you can’t be perfect 100% of the time.
So, how am I feeling? AMAZING! I have a ton of energy. I was super busy this weekend running errands, getting organized (wait until you see my closet), and having a little fun too (go karts on Saturday & brunch on Sunday; no I didn’t eat). I do feel lighter (I probably lost around 5 pounds doing the reset), and sleep amazing at night. I’m looking forward to keeping this clean eating trend moving forward.
Do I notice any physical changes? I know I said I could see changes, but then as week three was coming to a close I no longer saw any changes. Thankfully before I started the reset I took pictures. I took them this morning and noticed changes. This is exactly why Beachbody encourages you to take pictures. Sometimes we have this mental block; we’re feeling and thinking one way, and seeing another way. The fact is I was feeling great, but I started to doubt and not see any changes to my body. I’m happy to report there are changes. Even though they were small, there were still changes. The point of me doing this reset was to get back on track. I know changes to my body will continue as I start working out again.
What am I eating? I had a lot of good food the last four days of the reset. I ended up substituting a few things on the last day for my favorite meals I love on the reset.
Thursday: Breakfast – Bowl of fruit and tea. Lunch – Microgreen salad with a sweet potato. Snack – Blueberries and an apple. Dinner – Delicata squash and green beans.
Friday: Breakfast – Bowl of fruit. Lunch – Mircogreen salad with pumpkin seeds and Hearty miso soup (LOVE THIS SOUP). Snack – Blueberries and an apple. Dinner – Roasted beets, tempeh and coconut collard greens.
Saturday: Breakfast – Bowl of fruit. Lunch – Jicama and avocada salad. Snack – Blueberries and an apple. Dinner – Stir fry veggies and kale chips.
Sunday: Breakfast – Bowl of fruit. Lunch – Microgreen salad and Asian cabbage salad (another FAVORITE of mine). Dinner – Asian cabbage salad and coconut collard greens.
I planned my meals for the week (90% clean eating), and have my workouts ready to go. Tomorrow I’ll fill you in on my weekend fun and my new workout! Hope everyone had a great weekend. Happy Monday!
