Recap: Today has been an “off” day for me. I didn’t sleep well last night and am just feeling kind of blah… I didn’t want to eat all of that fruit, so I blended it into a smoothie. It was a weird texture so I ended up hardly drinking any of it. By the time lunch rolled around, I just wanted some soup. I’ve been feeling cold and puny so I stopped at Panera and got the soup and salad combo. I went with the Seasonal Greens salad which is just lettuces, tomato, onion, and cucumber. But, that garden veggie soup is what I was after! I ordered it Continue reading “Ultimate Reset: Day 20”
Recap: Feeling awesome today! I just love how my mood has been over the last 19 days! I’m very interested to see how I adjust to adding things back to my diet. I’m willing to completely eliminate certain foods if they make me feel bad. It’s just not worth it to feel sluggish and worn out all the time. Since I started the Reset, I haven’t had that afternoon slump. My energy has been Continue reading “Ultimate Reset: Day 19”
Recap: Since dinner wasn’t as much as I was supposed to eat, I woke up hungry. Luckily, the fruit hit the spot and filled me up until about 11. I started feeling hungry before lunch, but chugged some water and it subsided. I’ve been craving pasta with marinara all day. Before I started this program, I was sure I would crave meat. But, I haven’t too much. However, I can tell that I’m getting less protein than I have Continue reading “Ultimate Reset: Day 18”
Recap: Whew!!! It’s the final countdown!!! I am really excited to not have to take all these freaking pills! 5 more days! Today was kind of a weird day. We made an unplanned trip after work, so I didn’t really have time to eat dinner ahead of time. We didn’t get home until 9pm, but instead of stopping at a fast food restaurant like Continue reading “Ultimate Reset: Day 17”
Recap: Feeling great today!! I didn’t drink as much water as I should have, so I’m chugging as much as I can before bed. Probably a bad idea, but I gotta get it done. I’m still wishing I could find some peaches for my breakfasts. I’m getting bored with mango, pears, and berries. I am, however, loving the ginger dressing! I added some shredded carrots and extra Continue reading “Ultimate Reset: Day 16”
Recap: I’m still loving the fruit in the morning, but I decided to jazz it up a little bit. Haha! I’m craving peaches and my grocery store doesn’t have any!! So, pears, mango, and berries it is. I spent most of the day at home and found myself craving some snacks. I allowed myself to have some fruit in the afternoon because Continue reading “Ultimate Reset: Day 15”
Week 2 is O-V-E-R!!!! This week has been a little more difficult than week 1. I’m starting to get that “over it” feeling. It might be different if I were seeing the scale going down like some others have. It is a tad bit discouraging. But, I keep reminding myself that I’m doing this for much more than the number on the scale. I feel better and I know I’m taking care of my body. I’m developing a Continue reading “Ultimate Reset: Week 2 Recap”
Recap: I am so ready to be done with this program. It finally hit me pretty hard today. I am tired of taking supplements and being on this schedule. I’m a little cranky and craving comfort foods and I think it’s because I’m just over it. However, I wouldn’t really change anything (except maybe the power greens – ICK!). I have learned so much Continue reading “Ultimate Reset: Day 14”
Recap: I slept really well last night! I could have kept sleeping if it weren’t a work day! It’s Cinco de Mayo and I really wanted some tacos!!! I made a pretty acceptable version of a taco salad for lunch. It was just romaine, tomato, cucumber, avocado, and about a quarter cup of black beans and corn. I can’t wait to have some healthy tacos again.
I was pretty worried Continue reading “Ultimate Reset: Day 13”
Recap: Woohoo! More than halfway there! The last 12 days have felt like the longest in my life! Not necessarily in a bad way, but it’s definitely passing by slowly. Today was a cloudy day here and all I wanted was some warm, comfort food. I think I’ve been craving warm stuff because my body temp is a little lower than normal and it’s also freezing in my office. Mid day salads are perfect for a hot day, but it’s a little cool today. So, I opted for the quinoa lentil pilaf AGAIN! I love it, but I think I’m getting sick of it.
I’ve been having some cravings for things that aren’t on the plan, but are definitely healthy foods. Not junk food cravings. I can walk past a candy dish without a second glance but I’d kill for some 21 Day Fix cheesecake!!! Or a flatbread pizza… I’m dedicated to finishing the full 21 days without falling off track, but I’m really looking forward to adding some foods back in. I’m definitely itching for the finish line!!
