I’m a little behind (sorry about that!), because I am currently on day 10, Phase 2 today. So far, everything has been going great! The food has been excellent, with a couple of exceptions so far. I have only “cheated” a couple of times, one of them being yesterday. I only had mashed chickpeas on the menu for breakfast. I still felt really hungry, so I added in some fruit.
So far, I feel good. Usually in the first week of the Reset, you can feel fatigued, chills, and achy. I felt cold a couple of mornings and a couple times over lunch, I took a cat nap.
I like drinking water 30 and taking supplements 30 minutes before you eat. It seems to keep you fuller and more aware of what you are putting in your body while you eat. There have been many times, that I was too full to eat all of what I was supposed to!
Thirty minutes before every meal, you drink 12-36 ounces of distilled water with the Mineralize supplement. Also, during different times of the day, you are taking two pill capsules of supplements. The supplements taken, depend on what phase you are in of the reset! In the afternoon, before the snack, you take a supplement that is similar to a wheatgrass shot. It is definitely not my favorite, and it tastes like grass, but I know it is healthy for me and doing it’s job.
I haven’t wieghed myself or measured myself since my starting weigh in. I don’t plan to until the day after my last day! I know my body is going through tons of changes and the scale could be off due to me drinking almost a gallon of distilled water, daily!
The other things that I really like are having a pre-planned meal plan for you! I love not having to plan, just have a grocery list and get what I need! It is a time saver, when you spend about 1.5 hours in the kitchen preparing every night! I like my food fresh, so instead of spending the weeking meal prepping, like I normally do, I prep day by day. Some things you can make ahead, like quinoa and brown rice. Or on mornings when I have a fruit bowl, I have the fruit pre-cut and ready to go the night before, so in the morning, I can grab and go!
I also like the break from doing my workouts, believe it or not! I feel like after doing months of intense workouts, your body needs a much needed break! I thought I would have a ton of extra time at night, but actually I have less! My food prep takes longer than working out did! However, I am looking forward to getting back into things once I am done! I am thinking of doing PiYo again after!
Surprisingly, you get to eat ALOT! Some meals, I couldn’t finish because I was so full! Be prepared to eat TONS of salads! I am only on day 10, but I am already starting to get “salad-ed out”! One way I spice it up each time, is by adding different veggies.
My last day is actually, September 4th, the Friday of Labor Day Weekend. I am taking off work that day, and going in for a massage and facial! My little present to me for finishing strong! It was also part of my birthday present from my hubby, a gift certificate for a spa day! I can’t wait!
