So I mentioned that I started the Ultimate Reset to cleanse and detoxify my body. I’ve abused it enough – from years of smoking (I quit a while ago, but still), fast food, junk food, fatty foods, sweets, alcohol, caffeine, soda, etc…it was time to make a change. I always felt slow and tired and I needed to kick start my weightloss journey for the year, for life. So, I figured, I could start by detoxifying and starting out with the cleanest canvas possible.
Week 1 ended yesterday and I feel great! Now, not everyday was easy, but you know what was good? The FOOD! Here are some videos/testimonials from me. Just of what I’m feeling and such and…FOOD pics…mmmm…But with all this yummy food = prepping. I need to up my game on that because I feel like I’m in the kitchen almost all day which is not cool because I have my work laptop on the counter and such. I need to do better with looking ahead without getting overwhelmed. That way, I can see some are the same recipes as the night/days before and I can just cut up double the amount so I don’t have to cut again the next day.
Anywho…here goes my Week 1:
Week 1 Day 1 - The beginning of my journey. The food was great, the headaches from caffeine (and sugar?) withdrawal – not so much! Energy level was down, but that wasn’t anything new.
Week 1 Day 3 – Aches and pains started. My lower back was sore along with my things and bum…I guess the trunk area? Tired and achy and felt like I was coming down with the flu (like so many right now).
Week 1 Day 4 – Even MORE achy. It was hard to sleep the night before and this night. I was tired, but had a hard time taking a nap because no position helped relieve my aches – especially my lower back. I refrained from taking any pain relievers and envied my hubby, who was coming down w/a cold and fever, for being able to take some. Also, very cold! Our house is set to 72 and I was freezing! I even bumped it up to 73, but still cold and was with my snuggie.
Week1 Day 5 - Was starting to feel less achy, more energized (but I’ll still nap. I have kids who like to wake up in the middle of the night due to foot pains or leg pains or wanting milk or nightmares or what-have-you, so I will take naps whenever possible – sometimes tired or not…hehehe).
Week 1 Day 6 – Felt great with still some lower back soreness (I don’t know if that’s ever going to go away, especially with how I’ve been on my feet a lot in the kitchen prepping and such), but afternoon had me FREEZING again! I was bundled up with my hooded sweatshirt (hood on), a snuggie, gloves and fur lined shoes. It was 73 in the house.
Week 1 Day 7 – Last Day of Week 1! WOW! Already?!?! Down 5.5lbs Felt pretty good, lower back pain only after being on my feet a lot. No headaches (stopped around Day 4).
Today Begins Week 2 aka RELEASE week aka DETOX week. That also means I’m going to be taking some detox supplements along with my alkalanize (powders you dissolve in water). In addition, I begin vegetarian mode. Oh boy, wish me luck!
