Ultimate Reset Day 3 Update

 I started my cleanse this week, snapped those before pictures and wanted to give you all an update! Im on day 3 and in Phase 1 and I have to say, I am surprised with how good I feel so far. I am not starving like I thought I would be either. The amount of food you get to eat is unbelievable. I love that I am trying so many new things too.

 It isn't recommended to drink coffee but it does say if you absolutely must have coffee than you can....well, I DID!! I only had 1/4 of a cup and that seems to be holding me off just fine. I am missing my morning pre workout drink but I honestly dont feel like I am going through any type of withdrawal from not having my normal coffee or pre workout drink. I love that the guide tells you exactly what to eat and on each day!

Right now I am in Phase 1 where we begin to alter our diet by slowly removing dairy and meat. We are also rehydrating our body with a ton of water to reactivate sluggish cell function along with shifting our bodies Ph level which can weaken your body's functions.

I start my day off with water and two pills that is a blend of enzymes with camu camu, vitamin C and aminos which help your immune system and all around body functions. When I first started I was feeling like I was getting sick and one day in, and my cold is gone! Im pretty sure it had to do with all these natural supplements! Through out the day we take a few more supplements and drink something to help with the process..and no---this is not the type of cleanse where you are constantly heading to the bathroom!

There is a set menu to choose from but they also give you the "Reset in a Crunch" menu for people who are busy on some days and you can also swap out any of the meal options you dont like as long as you do lunch for lunch and stay within the same phase.

I really loved this Creamy Garlic Dressing! 

Its not recommended to do heavy lifting or intense workouts so I started the 3 Week Yoga Retreat and am loving the feeling of starting my mornings off with a nice stretch!

I'm in private group on facebook with a bunch of other ladies that help with tips, support and motivation! So any time we have a question, we are all here to help! I love the accountability and support we give one another!

If you youre ready to get started on your transformation or want kick things up a notch I'm putting together my next Virtual Online Gym!

It is overwhelming as a busy mom...handling day-to-day responsibilities, taking care of our families, and working every day is a BIG responsibility and we often don't take the time to care for ourselves.
Dealing with the feeling of having to work when all you want to do is be home with your children is HARD!
Sometimes working full time is the only option we have so finding the time to exercise and eat healthy can seem close to impossible but we manage to get through the days!

As a fellow former teacher, I get it! I worked for 8 years and after having two boys of my own, all I wanted to was be home to watch them grow. At the time I didnt have that option so after working all day I would come home and the LAST thing I wanted to do was eat healthy and exercise.
After I was sick and tired of feeling uncomfortable in my own skin I learned to meal plan with fresh ingredients, committed to working out at home for 30 minutes, and joined an online accountability group for support and motivation.
Now, I feel stronger, healthier, and happier than ever.

A workout plan with daily workouts that are 30 minutes or less!

An easy-to-follow nutrition plan with meal planning guidance and recipe ideas!
One-on-one coaching!
Access to online accountability groups filled with like-minded individuals working toward similar goals!

We start October 31, 2016!

What is the Ultimate Reset?

What is the Ultimate Reset?

The Beachbody Ultimate Reset® is a comprehensive, no-starvation, inner-body tune-up that offers much more than the typical cleanse and detox programs on the market. The Ultimate Reset not only helps you eliminate toxins and waste gently and naturally, but it also maximizes your cellular energy production, helping your body process food more efficiently and your systems run more smoothly.* You’ll replace the processed foods you’ve been eating with healthy foods. You’ll eat cleanly—possibly for the fi rst time in your life—and take supplements designed to help your body remove from your cells and organs toxins that you’ve been taking in for decades.
The Beachbody Ultimate Reset is a complete, three-phase, 21-day mind and body program that provides everything you need to:*
  • Reclaim your body’s natural balance
  • Release the harmful materials you may be storing within you
  • Restore your system to its maximum health
Participants have experienced the following benefits:*
  • Flush toxins from organs
  • Improved digestion
  • Increased energy
  • A more positive mood and better focus
  • Weight loss (improved BMI)
  • Lowered cholesterol
  • Eliminated dependencies on sugar and caffeine
  • Improved overall health
The Beachbody Ultimate Reset is a breakthrough program that will help you gently restore your body to its “original factory settings” so you can feel, look, and be healthier.

What the Beachbody Ultimate Reset is NOT:

  • A starvation diet (you’ll eat three filling, healthy meals every day)
  • An abrupt cleanse that’s hard on the body (the supplements work together gradually to gently shift your body’s internal settings)*
  • A laxative-based, colon-focused cleanse, which fails to truly detoxify the whole body (you won’t be running to the bathroom every hour!)

Beachbody Ultimate Reset™

Q. Can/Should I continue my medication while on the Ultimate Reset?
A. “Yes” is the easy answer, but you should always consult your physician before beginning this program to be sure that this Reset won’t interfere with any treatments or conditions. The variations are infinite, so please make sure you’re well informed as to whether your situation is compatible with this program. If it’s not, please return the product for a full refund of your purchase price.
Q. Should I continue with my current vitamin and supplement program
during the Reset?
A. No. The Ultimate Reset has been carefully formulated and tested to ensure you’ll be getting all the vitamins and nutrients you need during all three phases. Again, however, if you’re taking vitamins or supplements for any specific nutritional or medical condition, you should first consult with your physician before altering your regimen.

Q. Can I do the Ultimate Reset while pregnant or nursing?

A. No, it’s best to wait.
Q. Is there any “cheating” allowed while on the Ultimate Reset?
A. The Ultimate Reset is not a diet; it’s a detox program. So try to view it as such. (A person who is on a program to quit smoking doesn’t cheat from time to time with the intent of eliminating the addiction to nicotine, right?) To answer your question more directly, no, there’s no cheating allowed. However, if you find yourself in need of a little something extra to eat, just be sure to stay in line with the phase you’re in. For example, in the Release Phase (Week 2), there’s no meat or dairy allowed. So if you need more food, make sure it’s a fruit, vegetable, or whole grain.

Q. What happens if I cheat during the Ultimate Reset?
A. Get right back on the program, and don’t beat yourself up about it.

Q. Should my 15-year-old son and my 13-year-old daughter do the

Ultimate Reset?
A. No. Although they may benefit from many elements of the Ultimate Reset, it’s best not to follow this program until you’re 18 years old. Remember, as we move through puberty to adulthood, there are already a great many processes and “resets” occurring within the body. It’s best to wait until these are complete. But that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t include your children in your journey. They can learn how to eat and experiment with the foods we advocate within the program, which can be shared by  the whole family, regardless of age.

Q. Will the Ultimate Reset help with constipation?
A. Yes. Barring any serious medical conditions, the Reset’s three-phase meal plan and supplement protocol will help with regularity and constipation.
Q. Why no laxatives or enemas, as in other cleanses?
A. The Ultimate Reset is not a quick fix. It’s about reaching an overall state of well-being. We’re working gently with the body to help bring it back to what it does naturally,  rather than relying on such invasive measures.
Q. Can I continue with the supplements after I’ve completed my Reset?
A. Yes. The Ultimate Reset Maintenance Kit and the six individual supplements are available for purchase (available on HD). By taking the supplements after the Reset, you are taking an important step in maintaining your Ultimate Reset results and in optimizing your health from the inside out.
Q. I’m having difficulty cooking all the food. Can I buy packaged food that is
precooked or pr-emade at a deli counter? What about from a restaurant?
A. The Beachbody Ultimate Reset is a whole-body experience. Part of that experience is preparing and eating your own foods. If you have a tight schedule, you may refer to the Food Prep Tips in the Weekly Meal Plans for ideas on how to save time. If you are traveling or unable to cook your own foods, we highly recommend you eat as closely to the Weekly Meal Plans as possible and choose foods from trusted healthy sources, such as Whole Foods or a vegan restaurant.

Q. Can I make money selling the Beachbody Ultimate Reset?
A. Okay, you might not have asked that, but we’re going to take this opportunity to tell you that you can. In the midst of this program, we expect that you’ll feel incredible, perhaps even euphoric, thanks to the elimination of toxins from your body. You may not be able to refrain from describing the elation to anyone who will listen. And what happens next is usually that people say, “Where can I get it?” We believe that if your healthy lifestyle choices result in demand for our products, you deserve to get paid for it. Talk to the Coach who introduced you to the Beachbody Ultimate Reset, or go to TeamBeachbody.com for more information. NOTE: Consult with your physician before beginning the Beachbody Ultimate Reset program if you have digestive, blood sugar, or any other similar or unique medical conditions. If you experience nausea, dizziness, vomiting, or other severe reactions to this program, stop the Beachbody Ultimate Reset immediately and contact your physician. Do not resume until your medical professional has assured you it is safe to do so.

Why I Believe a HOT BOD  ZEN CHALLENGE is necessary...

1. I've learned that moderation is a heck of a lot more gratifying than deprivation.
2I've learned that I am more patient when I make myself a priority.
3. I've learned that it is not selfish when I have some me time.  My time is 6 am. Every day.  No one comes near mama at 6 am.
