Today was a good day. Last night prepped all my food for today and I slept pretty well. as i was falling asleep i noticed that for the first time in almost 3 weeks, i did not have a stuffy nose! HOORAY! go ultimate reset! lol
work went well. i was able to stay right on track even though the owner brings in the most delicious looking crackers, cookies, and cakes every day. I didnt have any. On the contrary, i had my lunch box packed with my supplements and snacks and lunch. I also brought shakeology because theyve been dying to try it. I made two big batches and poured them into cups for them and they all sucked it down. some even drank two! i was only able to wait about 15 minutes between taking supplements and eating my snack (youre supposed to wait 30) but i dont think thats a fail. it was no biggie.
i went home to prepare my dinner and let my dog out and then i had to go back out for a house call at 830. Life of a celebrity hairstylist-lol :-P I had a model to style for a party tonight. A big party, which i will miss. it's an annual party. I went two years ago and was fat and happy and had a great time. Last year I didn't go because i was on a roll with my weight loss and wasnt drinking at ALL. I thought this year would be my "big reveal" but unfortunately its not. Its the same weekend every year, but I didnt think about it when I planned my reset, so I will miss it. also, the theme is lingerie this year and i know how hott the girls there will be- i am DEFF not confident enough to be in lingerie around them this year. I joked that next year i am going no matter what, and i am going naked LOL by then i will be all nipped and tucked and will have put another year in the gym. shit, i might even win the contest next year! lol
so i am thrilled about my stuffy nose being gone. i look and feel lean. i am not noticing any lack of energy- besides around 8pm I am ready to wind down and could prob go to bed at 9 if my life allowed. i like all of the food and even love some of it. i can drink the salt water aka "mineralize" like a champ and im getting much better drinking the grass water aka "alkalinize". the only real downfall im still experiencing is the amount of time evvvvvvvvery meal takes to prepare and the body aches. My muscles just feel like I've all I've been doing is working out and my hips are actually hurting a little but too. As my trainer always says about the foam roller- don't think if the pain as the toller(or reset) hurting you. It's taking the hurt out of you. The pain in already built up and now it's being release.
When I got home from my house call i took a hot bath and used the dry brush. both reccomended for muscle aches on the reset. it did help a lot. so those are my only issues. the amount of GOOD i am feeling definitely outweighs the bad. How i am feeling right now i would do this again, and probably will. itll be easier the second time, knowing what to expect and how to make some of the food as well as what i need or dont need that is on the grocery list( its really annoying to me that the list isnt correct. beach body has already heard from me regarding that though so i wont rant here.)
It's only 10:30 on a Saturday night and I am thrilled to go to bed. I confess u "screwed up" and ate two strawberries after my bath. Tomorrow will be another long day. I'm going to the first part of a 3 part nutrition seminar, have to grocery shop, have a client at the salon, and a shitload of food to prepare and dishes to wash. I will need to be well rested.
Day 6 down. tomorrow will be the last day of phase 1! i look forward to it (especially because baked tempeh is on the menu again lol) and also to weighing in on monday!
