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!

Beer VS. Health Food

Wait what? Thats a super weird thing to compare right? HAHAHAHAH

Beer

But I want you all to relate to what I am saying and I am a beer drinker. I have learned to do it less and focus on Moderation. So where does health food come into this?

How many times have you walked into a grocery store, You are checking out the produce.

“Oh look Watermelon!! Love Watermelon! $5?!!! WTF! I am not paying that!!”

You put this food down.

“Cauliflower is on my list… $4… No Effing way!!”

You put this down.

Ok now you walk into a bar or go out to dinner. Its Cheat night. Your gonna have a beer and enjoy the hell of it. (Don’t like beer think wine, pick your poison… I don’t care what you like this is just what I am using….)

You to the Bartender, “I’ll take a Blue Moon.”

Bartender, “Here You go! That will be $5.25”

You hand over a $10, for one drink without even thinking about it, you don’t even blink.

Does anyone see a problem here?  Really think about it.

So here is my way of thinking. If I pick up something that is beneficial for me and my family. Whether my kids will refuse to eat it or not LOL. I look at the cost. Then I think, “If this was beer would I pay that price?” If the answer is yes then I toss it in the cart and it comes home with me.

There has become such a double standard, saying eating healthy is expensive. But you will walk into a fast food chain and drop$$ like its your job, or a bar, or a restaurant. So what I am saying is truly think about it first.

I drink Shakeology daily right.

At first Sticker Shock when you look at the cost. But again I have, at one time or another, dropped the price of a Bag of Shakeo in a bar in one night. Don’t Judge Me!

When you break down the coach price its under $4 a day. The PSL I drank yesterday was $4.65 and that did not benefit me whatsoever it was just yummy. (Basic Beotch)

So for me, I don’t even think about it. I get my bad I drink it daily I benefit from it.

Does Beachbody Work?

Does bb

AHHHHHHHHH its the million $$ Question?  Kidding! But I get this a lot! You want the answer…

So Does Beachbody work?

No, YOU DO!

Beachbody does however provide the tools for your success.

nut supp fitThis is what it takes. Want a quick fix? Then this probably isn’t for you. Want life long success and knowledge to stay there once you reach your goals? Well then Beachbody is for you.

Every single program comes with

  • The workouts (How many Depends on the program.)
  • Fitness Calendar (Written by fitness Pro so you know exactly what to do on what day. Hello Personal Trainer in your living room)
  • Nutrition plan (Now you know what to eat.)
  • Last but not least if you choose you get a Coach. For Free… (What the hell is a Beachbody Coach? Go Here) You will get support, motivation, and tips so you can make your journey a success.

 

So if you say you did a program and you saw no results. WTF?! Right? Well you need to re-evaluate what you are doing. Check out your diet. Are you really doing the plan as suggested. Because, if you are there is no way you are not seeing Killer results. And this goes for anything you are doing.   Just a reminder.

cant out exercise

For maintenance this may work, you want to feel better and see your hard work. You need to focus on your diet. Its necessary. Its important and it is 80% of the results that you see.

Nutrition an issue, your on the go a lot and have a hard time getting it all in?  That is where Shakeology comes in. You can get a bundle pack called a Challenge Pack. That gives you the workout program (includes everything I mention above) and Shakeolgy for a steal.

So you’ve tried Shakeology and had no luck. Let me get this straight, it is not a weight loss, or even just a protein shake. It is a meal replacement shake and is for nutritional purposes. It is not a miracle worker. Initially drinking the shake alone you may see some difference, but you do need to eat better and exercise. This Shake is just a miracle worker, it is a great starting point. Plus they are delish. For me it is a savior for breakfast or lunch. Saves my ass all the time. I am busy too I get it and I don’t always want a salad. (Most of the time I don’t!!!)

Hope this helps!

So finally what you have all been waiting for…
