Happy Week Two of the Ultimate Reset, friends!
Week Two is what resetters refer to as “Release”. During this week, we add in a Detox supplement, which surprisingly I liked! It has a lemony flavor and is best when mixed with super cold water and stirred consistently. This supplement isn’t one that makes you go to the bathroom a lot, so don’t worry about that if you are considering the Reset.
Yesterday I weighed in with the start of the week and was down two pounds and two inches. Like I said before, I’m not really as concerned with a huge weight loss; my goal was to feel better internally and have a better relationship with food. Even with my few little slip ups, I felt good about my progress and how I was feeling overall.
Here’s a look at what I have been eating this week in addition to my supplements (detox, optimize, power greens, and soothe):
BREAKFAST: A big ass plate of fruit…..which I have thoroughly been enjoying. I’ve always struggled with getting my fruit in during the day, so this has helped me realize that eating it first thing in the morning helps me get those portions in while feeling full and having all day to burn them off.
Rainbows are good…very good.
LUNCH: Microgreen Salads or Quinoa Salads
Microgreen Salads were on my meal plan last week, and I loved them so much I chose them for this week as well. If you love something, why change? I love having a simple salad packed full of veggies for my lunch, and the creamy garlic dressing recipe is AH-MAZ-ING. I don’t even use dressing in real life, but during this reset I’m into it.
This has been my saving grace….as a self diagnosed choc-o-holic, this is my sweet treat every day…..it’s also something I haven’t missed a day of in years, and I would never do anything that would force me not to have it.
DINNER: Stir fried veggies and a sweet potato
I fell in love with a slightly similar recipe during my 3 Day Refresh days, so this was a no brainer for me. I also love having sweet potatoes.
Today I went out to dinner with two of my friends before we went to see Beauty and the Beast. I was so happy when they agreed to go to The Mustard Seed, a local vegan/gluten free market and cafe. Here’s what I had for dinner:
Quinoa Stir Fry Bowl
I knew I could find something that was similar to the Reset recipes, and I was right! I had looked on the menu before I left my house to make sure…that’s what I always do when I am following a meal plan. It helps me stay on track!
Yoga….it’s going…..One day at a time. I see so many benefits of this program and why people like it, but I still am looking forward to jumping into the 21 Day Fix again once this ends.
Everyone says this week is emotional….I’m wondering if it will be for me. We shall see!
Hope your week is going well so far!
