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.

Lets chat!

How to Successfully stick to a fitness plan.

Working out for me is such a HABIT that for me it is weird when I do not do it. I am just so used to working out, that I feel bad when I don’t. Now Do Not take this as I am being obsessive, or ridiculous. I know when my body needs a break and believe me when I feel that way I take it!

11193305_10153430528530921_3516769540170224511_n

So how did I get where I am now? What keeps me going?

Research shows that it takes 21 Days to form a habit. Think about that. That is only 3 weeks. Does not seem like a  real long time am I right? So if you have to torture yourself for such a short amount of time for a healthy habit, for something that will improve your life why not do it? Seriously?

So what you need to do…

  • Schedule it. Make it as important as a Doctors appointment or a business meeting. You don’t skip those!
  • Pick a time and workout at that time daily. For me it is first thing in the morning. Weekends too unless its a rest day. I get up drink my pre workout, pee (hahahah TMI), then hit play. Now sometimes it does not go as planned. But does that mean I say fuck it and throw in the towel? Nope. It will make me feel better. Somedays, a 30 min workout takes triple the time because my kids need me. They have gotten better with it though so this does not happen as much anymore.
  • Let your significant other know this is important to you. That you will be working out and you need this time.
  • Remember that it is not selfish to take care of yourself. Sometimes you need to put you first.
  • If your day does not go as planned and you cannot fit it in. Do Not get discouraged just move your schedule back one day!
  • Quitting is not an option.
  • Have a Strong Why. What do I mean by this, this is the reason why you started on the journey to begin with. Really think about it. It has to be so strong that you will always go back to what you were doing. 10881666_10153186596365921_86908588061412141_n
  • Triggers! Set out your workout clothes, go to a gym then leave a gym bag in your car, set a reminder on your phone, have an accountability partner text you, put on your workout gear as soon as you wake up, this list is endless. Basically do whatever you need to so you Move your ASS!
  • Pick something you actually like to do. If you like to run do that, lift, dance, yoga, I don’t give a shit. Pick something. Want to workout at home, great, a gym great. Just do something.
  • Don’t get discouraged. Sometimes the scale won’t move. Think about everything that you are doing that is good for yourself! Remember those little NSVs!

NonScale-Victory

Hope this helps you!! Keep moving forward. Don’t compare yourself to others. What good is it going to do for you? You have no idea what leg of the journey someone else is on! Be supportive of one another for the same reason. You supporting someone else may help you stay motivated!

Refresher

So I have not written in a while…

To be honest for a good few weeks I was just rolling through the motions. (is that a saying? Hmmmmmm… Whatever.) But I was not practicing what I preach.  I freaking hate that! How can I tell people eat healthy, workout, the 2 go together. If I am only doing one of those? Working out, is such a habit for me that when I don’t I feel funky. Think of me as Rain man with dumbbells. But I was eating horrible. I believe in moderation and cheats, but I was being ridiculous. I would have one good day and I am not even sure if that would count, because I would be sneaking shit. Then it would be 3 days of binging. Out of Control.

I am a Beachbody Coach. I do that because health and fitness are a passion for me. I started this journey to be a Better Version of Myself. Improve my mood and my health. Oh and smaller pants was a perk. All for the kiddos and me. Right?

I started to feel Fluffy. My clothes were tight. This makes me moody. I hate being uncomfortable in my clothes, some days I felt like my skin was tight… You can’t escape that shit. My energy and my mood was bad, I did not want to do anything. Leaving the house was a chore.  I started to feel like depression was coming back. EFFF that.


My family and I went away this weekend. It was great. Seriously had a wonderful time. Pigged out again. Drank too much again. Came home to feel sluggish.

Monday morning, I hop on the scale… WTF. I knew it would be bad. But not that number. I usually say the scale is just a number. But when it is going up and you feel like crap, that number matters. There was an unused 3 Day Refresh in my cupboard. I had no intentional plan to do it yet. This pushed me. I had to get out of my funk. I had to find my passion again, which is helping others with their health. But first. I had to help myself. I had to put me first for a little.

So I did it.

And today I feel AMAZING! Seriously. I have not felt this well rested in forever. I don’t feel like a slug I leaped through my kitchen at 5:45 AM. My husband looked at me like I was insane. Super normal BTW, I am a weirdo.

My Results were the best they have ever been ( I also Started the 21 Day Fix Extreme again).

So here they are…


I lost 5.8 lbs.


5 inches


I gained my better mood and energy. Also the intention to keep eating healthy and allowing moderation again. I do not want to feel like I was. Or act like I was (Bitchy).

So now I ask you! Are you ready to do something for yourself? Feel happy and healthy (you can totally tell when you are healthy.) If that answer is finally YES! I want to help!!

Moms… Why should you workout?

I have been thinking of writing this for a while. Went back and forth. First of all I am not sure who reads what I write, second I don’t want anyone to think I am speaking just to moms. But thats what I am and this works for me. I truly believe everyone should workout. I think it is important for your health and really goes hand in hand with proper nutrition. But as a Mom. Why I work out are these key reasons.

(I have taken the last week off due to pulling something in my neck. I was told by my PT to do cardio that does not jar the upper body. Well… I took a break I want to heal, hoping to be back this coming Monday! Want to know something cool… I always come back now.)
image

You want to stick around for a LONG TIME

My dad passed at 51. Missed seeing weddings and 3 grand babies born. I refuse to do that. I will be here my kids are gonna be so sick of me

Stress Relief. 

You do all day for everyone. Being a mom is hard and it never stops EVER! The stress is constant. But for 30 min when I am in my own world. Blasting whatever music I am in the mood for and letting it all out. It makes me a better mom, a better wife, a better person.

Confidence

This is something I never really had. I never thought I was pretty or thin enough. I had a baby at 17 and gained a ton. I was always comparing myself to someone else. Now I do not give a shit. This may be getting older. But a big part is the body I have now, stretch marks and all I worked my ass off to get. That boosts you.

Showing my kids to care for themselves

My kids see every single day, what I do. They make good choices, sometimes they join me in my workouts.
image

Sleep…

Oh how I love sleep and now I am out like a light. Do I still get tired? Yep I have a ton on my plate. But when I sleep its good.

Taking care of Me

We do for everyone. Why aren’t we taking care of ourselves? Don’t you want to really be able to enjoy what you have?

Learning your body

Exercise is a great way to be in tune for your body. Knowing aches and pains, and what is working and what is not.

Vain

hahahaha what? I am 30. Not old, not young either. But I still get carded. BOOM! Taking care of yourself shows!!

Sex Life

It is just better. How often do you and your significant other do the deed? You should be active with them. its a big part of marriage that connection. My sex life got better when I started to take care of myself. Do it for that. Worth it…

DO IT FOR THE SIMPLE REASON THAT YOU ARE WORTH IT!

This thing I do

ATTENTION Stay at Home Moms… Or Dads

Have you lost yourself. I mean seriously? For a while there all I could relate to was being a mom, and it is pretty awesome. But what happened to the me before I had kids? To be honest, I was so young I hadn’t even found myself yet! Then you have this great little miniature you (which is scary as hell sometimes). You’re kind of floating, lost in being just a Mom (Dad) that you don’t really know how to relate to anyone. Except how to talk about your kiddos. Right? Because everyone wants to her how your 2 yr old went pee on the potty! (Exciting Shit, but unless they are in the same situation do people really care?) 

So I was lost, then I started working out and I heard about this little thing called being a Beachbody Coach. I was already doing the programs, they were fantastic, I wanted to help and connect with people. So I figured why not… Right what did I have to lose? So I signed up. I became a coach.

I was introduced to this community of people, who got me!! I became not just a mom. But a wife (who had also gotten her body back RAWR), a Friend, a Team Mate, a Leader, and a Motivator. I have bonded with people and opened myself up to so many possibilities. I love and believe in myself now. I know who I am and I don’t give a shit what anyone else thinks about me, or this “thing” I am doing. Because If i get one person to Find and Believe in themselves again, if I get one person to get off of their ass and do something that will benefit them, I am happy.

All of this started from One little word… YES.

So I want to ask you something? Why not YOU?

Now hiring! Get the PASSION back in your life!

Business

Can we talk about something that I never really bring up? Im not really sure why I don’t. To be honest I think its the reaction from others. Like Im going to hound them to join me in this “cult” or keep bugging them to buy a program. That they’re going to be like “Oh you’re a Beachbody Coach, thats such a load of Bull Shit.” Why do I care. Seriously… I freaking love my job. And I would never hound anyone you don’t want in on this. Fine. I don’t care. You need to do what works for you! These programs, have completely changed my body. I would not promote something that does not work. I am not a liar. I never was, in fact Im really bad at it and my moral compass does not allow it. wpid-wp-1434575470044.jpeg

Can we talk about the Business I build. ME… From my kitchen table or the couch. From my phone at the mall playground or park bench. Because I stay home with my kids.11403341_10153549715820921_4325088675068332010_n-1 This baby is all mine. and although I may have dropped the ball a bit this summer because I was out of town 4 out of 6 weeks and Having a blast. I still was bringing in a weekly income with minimal work. I was living it up. And to still be getting paid while not really doing anything. Pretty freaking awesome. Am I right?

So what does it take to do what I do? Well a big part is working on yourself so you can be a better person, like personal development. You can’t be Debbie Downer and help people change their lives.

 tumblr_mlxakp15K61s0pj15o1_400

Think about it. Would you want to talk to Negative Nancy about getting in shape? Nope.

Be a product of the product. Well Hello I love all the products, I drink the Shakeology. So why not save some money on it and help other people achieve the best results possible while they are on they’re journey. Do you have to be at your goal to be a coach? No, showing you are working on yourself. Makes you more relatable sharing that we are not robots. Life happens, shit happens. You are working on being better you are not a machine!

Refresh

Talking to people. Inviting them to join you, Inviting them to challenges, or free groups. Finding out about them. This is up my alley social media is a way for me to connect with adults. So if I message you to say HI. Thats all thats about I am not going to be like you should buy this… blah blah blah. I want to have an adult conversation.

This job, which does not feel like work to me at all. Has connected me back to the outside world. I feel like a better mom. I have a piece of me back. You know the one that was not just all about her kids. Although I have been a mom for almost 13 years now. OMG WAHHHHHH

If any of these describe you being a coach may be something you would like…

  • Goal Oriented
  • Coachable
  • Working on yourself is a priority
  • Want to help others and enjoy it
  • Health and Fitness is a passion
  • Want to work for yourself, set your own pace, work the hours or minutes you want
  • Use Beachbody products already (seriously if you are using them why not save the $$)

Questions for me, seriously you can ask me anything I will be honest! Post it in the comments or shoot me an email! Kalarw@gmail.com
