Three weeks to form habits is the thing we hear all the time right? Well, there is truth in it. The Ultimate Reset taught me valuable lessons about my habits with food, my addictions and my self-image.
My Actual Meals all prepared in my kitchen! (And I'm not a great cook!)
Testimonials from our Reset Accountability Group:
I'm done! Down 12lbs! Ordered some new jeans this morning, size 4 WOO HOO!!! Have not been here in years and it feels great!!! ~ Sandy R.
Start of day 14 ... I'm down 10 pounds. I haven't seen that number on a scale in almost 5 years. I decided I needed to measure. I've lost 2 inches in my waist, 2 1/4 inches in hips & 1 3/4 inches in my chest! ~ Misty F.
Getting rid of allergies, knowing I do have more self control than I realized, appreciation for food that is good for me, appreciation for planning, losing weight that I couldn't shake for years, and understanding that my choices ...were what had been holding me back all this time. When the plan was placed in front of me and I followed it, it worked. I feel great. Who knows how long I would have spun my wheels working out to get these results.~ Heather D.
I feel very good about being able to finish the three week reset. I started out at 246 pounds and I finished at 223 pounds. Add the 10 pounds I had already lost by drinking Shakeology and that is 33 pounds total...and I have not even stared working out yet. I was hoping this reset would give me a good start before beginning P90X, and it did. ~ Craig H.
It has taught me self control, discipline, that being good to yourself is the ultimate high. It is all about the mind, I am around all types of food and have not fallen into temptation. I have created a new habit! ~ Maria Z.
Here's a sampling of the delicious foods I've made during the first week of the Ultimate Reset.
Week 1: At a glance Weight Loss: 3 pounds Caffeine Habit: Kicked Energy: High Exercise: Tai Cheng and P90X2 yoga or complete rest Mood: VERY Happy Overall: I am thoroughly enjoying cooking these simple and absolutely delicious recipes. I miss my hard workouts, but my body is thanking me for recovery. I feel very light and very clean. I love that I don't need to rely on my morning coffee addiction to start my day. My cravings for chocolate and coffee are gone.

It's the end of day four of the Reset and I can honestly say, I think I made it. Yes, I realize this is 21 days, but given previous participant's feedback, days 3-4 are the hardest. So does that mean I've passed the hurdle? Hmmmm....not quite.
Difficulties and Obstacles
The most difficult adjustment for me has been no exercise. Sweating is what makes me feel alive. Having a great knock me down workout is what gives me the energy I need throughout the day. So having to give that up is truly like taking away the blankey from the child. It's hard for me to process that the rest is good. As much as I want to 'bend' the rules just a bit, I know that if I truly trust this process, I will realize that the rest is what my body needs most.
The other difficult obstacle - hunger. I am very used to eating very frequently and grazing throughout the day. Having to give up the comfort of mid-morning oatmeal or my afternoon Chocolate Shakeology delight is tough. But as the days progress, I'm realizing the hunger is much more of a mental release than physical. Eating out of habit rather than hunger is a hard thing to break. Therefore, I'm trusting this process.
I love to cook! WHAT? With very detailed grocery lists and a complete daily menu, what seemed like difficult meals in the past are actually quite simple and will forever become a staple on our rotation far beyond this Reset. Never would I have ever thought I'd be making sushi with my husband. AND like it!
I will no longer ever buy a dressing off the shelf after learning how to create the most fantastic blends from scratch. The aroma alone is simply amazing. Fruit has never tasted so fresh. Food just tastes better when it is pretty and colorful, exactly what is intended for our bodies.
I'm a little embarrassed to admit, but other than leftovers, I have never packed my husband's lunch. I'm doing that now. There is something so traditional about preparing everything from scratch and packing it containers. So much love goes into the process. I'm focusing on the beauty of food and it is a true statement of my love to prepare this for him. My thoughts about food were very differenet before the Reset.
I'm so proud of my husband for doing this with me. It's not that much of a stretch for me to eat tempeh and seaweed and miso soup, but it's a giant leap for him and he's been such an awesome support. I couldn't do this without him. Amazing how food can bring about such an awareness and closeness.
Stay tuned....next week begins the Detox. Intrigued to start your own Reset? Join me! Here's how!
