Today is the final day of Week 1 on my Ultimate Reset journey. This means I am 1/3 of the way done!
But I have to be honest….yesterday….yesterday I shit the bed hard with this journey.
About three months ago I decided I wanted to throw a surprise baby shower for one of my besties, Krista, who is due to give birth to a baby girl in April. We had it planned for March 18th, and since it was so long ago that I started the planning process, I hadn’t take the Reset into consideration. Once I committed to doing the Reset, I knew this day would be the day that I would screw up royally on this journey.
And I kind of did. We did have healthy options at the party…fruits, veggies, chicken salad….but we also had cupcakes and quiches, plus I brought a variety of donuts from Peace, Love, and Little Donuts. A brunch isn’t complete with them!
I started the day off as planned….a big ol’ fruit plate. I love this as a breakfast option…thank heavens because it will be on the plan for the next two weeks!
Well, let me tell you friends….I did eat a donut…a Fruity Pebbles one, one of my favorites. It was delicious during the two seconds of consumption.
I cannot even begin to tell you how sick it made me.As I left to drive the hour+ back to my house from my mom’s, I could barely make the drive. The sugar from the donut had made me so sluggish and sleepy and my whole body felt weird. It was such a change from how great I had been feeling throughout the week.
When I got home I immediately put on comfy pajamas and decided to be a lazy bum since I felt so uncomfortable. I snapped this picture as I was brushing my teeth because I literally looked pregnant because of how bloated that sugar made me (spoiler alert: I’m not). It’s crazy how bad that little bit of sugar made me feel and how it impacted my body after being without it for only 5 days.Workout Wise, I’ve been on track. I liked today’s 10 Minute series a lot…..still struggling with balance and some of the moves, but I am getting better. Don’t get it twisted though; I still am looking forward to my intense routines!
Week 2 starts tomorrow which means a change in some of the dietary restrictions. No more eggs or toast, so Im pretty much all fruits and veggies from here on out. I made the decision to do the same meal for breakfast, lunch, and dinner this whole week. Last week I tried to change it up to try these different recipes, but I do best when I repeat. That’s my plan! This week I’m throwing in some jackfruit….I’ll be sharing a video and more info on it soon because I’ve been getting a lot of questions on what it is. Be on the lookout!
Even with a few little slips this week, I am still excited to see how my measurements are tomorrow and how I did on Week 1!
Let’s make this week great, ok?
