Phase 3 Ultimate Reset – Restore

I did it! I finished! 21 Days of a cleanse with zero cheats. I do have to say for me this phase was the hardest. As you Restore, you’ll eliminate grains and legumes to focus on a simple, cleansing, fruit- and vegetable-based diet. And taking out the grains made me groggy at first. I was ready to be done too. LOL

The first 4 days of this phase I did not feel great. Then after I got through that . My energy spiked and I felt amazeballs. Not only did this cleanse help me. But I had energy to do things that have been driving me insane for a long time! I cleansed my house of a ton of unwanted crap! Like I had restless energy. I could not stop or sit still lol. Sleep is great and I an happy to report after I have no cravings. I am drinking coffees again but I don’t feel the need for a pot. I just love it. HA!

I was able to stay on a budget and complete this plan as well! It was necessary with a family of 5. So I stuck to certain meals!!

My day, up drink 12 ounces of distilled water take 2 optimize (helps your body absorb nutrients), take 2 revitalize (Helps support beneficial flora in the digestive tract) 30 min later breakfast.

Breakfast 3 cups of Fruit.

Wait 2hrs drink 12 ounces of distilled water take 2 optimize, 2 revitalize.

Lunch Spinach salad with cucumber baked sweet potato, avacado, and roasted pumpkin seeds.

Wait 2hrs and drink the Power Greens. Still gross. But got it in!

30 min snack of Vegan Shakeology!

Wait 2 hrs at least drink 12 ounces of distilled water take 2 optimize and 2 soothe (supports digestive health), 2 revitalize. Wait 30 min.

Dinner. I had either garlic veggies with sweet potato, a did 2 days of a roasted squash and lemon green beans but after eating this once I felt sick. So then I did the sweet potato  roasted red pepper bisque and a sweet potato. Tons of sweet potatoes but it was good!

Exercise was kept light yoga and walking still.

RESULTS YOU GUYSSSS!!

I was shocked! I am down 11.7 lbs and 9.25 inches. I did not do this to lose weight I wanted to feel better. I wanted to sleep past 3 am without sweating my ass off. I wanted to kick menopausal symptoms to the curb and that is exactly what I did! No cravings now minimal hot flashes. I feel that energy I had as a child. I recommend this to everyone and wish I would have done this years ago!!

Curious about it! Lets chat!

Week 2 the Ultimate Reset -Release

I successfully completed another week of the Cleanse that scared the shit out of me! No cheats, 14 days in. I have to say I am proud of me. I have gone to work that serves wings. They are my weakness. Along with beer, wine, and chocolate… hahaha there is more. And if I am being completely honest. I have never gone that long with out a single cheat. Even on 80 Day Obsession when I was following timed nutrition I ate wings. Said they were on the plan, because they are chicken. Thats a protein. UMMMM they are fried and delicious.

The Start of week 2 was kind of rough, I am not going to lie. In this phase you completely eliminate all animal products. I know it sounds horrible. I was dreading it and if you would have saw me Sunday Which was day 4 of it, I may have threatened your life for a wing. (Don’t worry no one was hurt during this cleanse.) I fought through that craving and everything changed.

You guys I feel AMAZEBALLS, like I have not had any caffeine in 2 weeks and I fly right out of bed. I feel rested. I have the energy that I used stare longingly at a toddlers energy and wish I had.

I was able to do this week on a budget again. Like I said in the post about phase one Reclaim.  I needed to make this work with a family of 5. So I repeated a lot of meals. Dinner I switched up between 2 recipes. I was able to get all of my groceries for the week from 2 stores. I spent around $120 at Aldi and $25 at Giant Eagle.

My day, up drink 12 ounces of distilled water take 2 optimize (helps your body absorb nutrients), And Detox ( Helps support the boys natural detoxification processes and healthy liver function) 30 min later.

Breakfast. 3 Cups of fruit. I did a lot of cantaloupe, pineapple, honey crisp apples. I love fruit so this did not bother me at all!

Wait 2hrs drink 12 ounces of distilled water take 2 optimize , And Detox 30 min later.

Lunch. Micro greens salad. Did I mention I discovered Spring Mix tastes like dirt. And I really don’t care for it. But I bought it and budget so I ate it any way. This one I either topped with avocado or quinoa.

Wait 2hrs and drink the Power Greens. Still gross. But got it in!

30 min after Optional snack! I had Vegan Caffe Latte Shakeology. Which is delish.

Wait 2hrs drink 12 ounces of distilled water take 2 optimize , And Detox 30 min later.

Dinner. I swapped out with garlic Veggies with quinoa and miso soup. Or Sweet Potato Roasted Pepper Bisque, with a side of quinoa topped with a bit of avocado and this bisque was so freaking good!! And really easy to make.

Workouts only consisted of Yoga or hiking with the fam.

I told you how good I feel now lets do the results. I am down another 2.1 lbs from last week making my total 8.3 lbs in the 2 weeks. and down another 1/2 inch or so! Oh and PS I got a haircut.

Ultimate Reset – Week 1 Reclaim

This Cleanse is something that terrified me! Im not kidding. I do not like to be super restrictive with food. Like at all. I like beer and wine and i want to enjoy those beverages when ever the hell I feel like, because. I am an Adult. And that is one of the perks of adulting. Maybe one of the only…. After years of medications for endometriosis. Surgeries, and pain pills in the recovery. I just felt well tired.

After having both ovaries removed in December 2017 I was feeling better than ever, pain free. Then the menopause symptoms hit. And they hit hard! I have a really bad  visual memory of me pacing outside of our tent on labor day, because they were coming on so strong. I thought like I was dying. I felt as if I was suffocating in my own body. I didn’t think I would escape. I didn’t think they would e For those of you that have never experienced a hot flash. It is like being lit on fire from the inside. They come on fast and sometimes furiously. and sometimes. Constant.  Recently I had not been sleeping from 3 am on. I would just lie there and sweat. Go through the day exhausted then do it again. Get my workout in get on with my day. Then another surgery was needed for my wrist. More anesthesia, more recovery, more pills. And still hot flashes.

One of my coaches got the kit! And I was telling her how I wanted to do it, just could not right now. Well by some grace of god she was given an extra one. I know right? And gifted me it! I got it and Im like ill wait till January!  Because well its fall Pumpkin beer is out, fires and i can’t miss that.

Then i tried to sleep…. you know what happened?

So I started researching planning and started that bitch 4 days after the kit. For those of you that  know me and see the pictures and think why you cleansing? You don’t need to lose any weight. I didn’t do it for that. I needed to reset myself!

They do provide a reset in a pinch suggesting to follow the full plan. Here’s the thing. I don’t have the budget to buy everything needed and I did not want to take the time to make everything daily. Yes I am home. But I am busy. I run a business and when the kids get home mayhem. You feel me?

So I picked the meals I knew I would eat! I ate the same meal for 7 days.And I prepped for that in batches. Making 3 -4 days work the at a time.

I do not mind eating the same thing on repeat if it’s delish.

It is a ton of food! And it was good, well except the power greens. Yuck but if I can do a shot of Yukon I can handle that.

My day, up drink 12 ounces of distilled water take 2 optimize (helps your body absorb nutrients) 30 min later.

Breakfast. The only meal that I swapped occasionally. Was oats, organic plain yogurt topped with natural maple syrup, and berries. Or fruit and organic plain yogurt topped with natural maple syrup.

Wait 2 hrs at least drink 12 ounces of distilled water take 2 optimize (helps your body absorb nutrients) 30 min later.

Lunch Greek salad. With chicken. I took out any veggie that I knew I would not eat. And could not find one nuts so I used sunflower seeds (roasted and unsalted) made the dressing!

Wait 2 hrs at least drink 12 ounces of distilled water take power greens!

Wait 30 mins and snack. Which was an green apple with 15 raw almonds. Or Vegan Shakeology.

Wait 2 hrs at least drink 12 ounces of distilled water take 2 optimize and 2 soothe (supports digestive health). Wait 30 min.

Dinner honesty delicious. Quinoa with a veggie stir fry and cucumber salad.

Tons of water throughout the day! And I also did a hot water with stevia lemon and cayenne pepper in the morning. I miss coffee lol.

I was hungry day 1. Simply because of the adjustment of food. I mean I housed everything I could the night before and had a beer.

Who wouldn’t? But after I was satisfied with the meals.

Day 4 I felt a bit achy and 5 I had a slight headache. But that’s it.

The positive… my energy is up! Sleep oh sleep. I sleep solid until like 5-530. No hot flashes and sweats all through the night. For me that is amazing! Happy and content.

PROUD! I did something that scared me and made it through work at Buffalo Wild Wings running the kids, and a kids bday party with out a single cheat!

Results.

In the first week. I am down 6.2 lbs and 3 inches.

Bring on week 2!!

The meals change a bit. But with some prep and the shopping list we got this!

I would love to talk to you about upcoming groups or if you think you would benefit to doing this cleanse.
