The Skinny on the Ultimate Reset – Day 15

I’ve been feeling really down the past couple days! Nothing awful. Just like “meh” so a day of hair and brows (and let’s be honest… mustache manicuring hehehehhe!!) and I feel good as new!!! Turning 43 has me feeling all sorts of ways and through this cleanse as I’m emotionally unloading a ton of blocks I feel lighter and less stressed than I have in YEARS!

It doesn’t hurt that the food was GOOOOD TODAY!!

Here’s the Skinny on Day 15:

Wake up w/20 oz of distilled water (Mineralize added) and continue drinking this ALL day just not until 30 mins after a meal for digestion purposes!

Take Supplements (Optimize & Revitalize)

Wait 30 Minutes

Breakfast

3 cups of fruit – I was on the go so I improvised and added about a cup of frozen mango to 1/2 scoop tropical strawberry Shako and blended it with 10 oz of distilled water. It is so freaking delish I could drink it alllll day!

Wait at least 2 hours.

Take Supplements again

Wait 30 min (I still wasn’t home so it was about an hour)

Lunch

Asian Cabbage Salad that I inhaled so fast I can’t believe I didn’t get a picture! I”m soooo bummed you can’t see it but here’s the recipe:

Makes 1 serving

3 Tbsp. rice vinegar

2 Tbsp. fresh lime juice

2 Tbsp. sesame oil

1 1/2 tsp. finely chopped ginger ( I hate ginger and didn’t add it)

2 Tbsp. Bragg Liquid Aminos

1/2 head Napa cabbage, shredded (4 cups)

1/2 medium carrot, shredded

1/2 medium red onion, thinly sliced

2 green onions, thinly sliced

2 Tbsp. chopped fresh cilantro

Himalayan salt to taste

Combine vinegar, lime juice, oil, ginger, and Bragg Liquid Aminos in a small bowl; mix well. Combine cabbage, carrot, red & green onions, cilantro, and salt (if desired) in a large bowl; mix well. Drizzle with dressing; toss gently. Let salad marinate, covered, in refrigerator for 15 mins before serving.

Wait at least 2 hours (I waited 3)

Take your power greens

Wait 30 minutes

Optional Snack – I nibbled on half a red bell pepper and hummus

Wait 2 hours

Take Supplements (Optimize, Revitalize & Soothe)

Wait 30 min

Dinner Mash up! I’ve been mixing my dinners together in a bowl still. It tastes way better to me! It called for a baked sweet potato & garlic veggies. Here’s the recipe:

Baked Sweet Potato – 1 serving

1 medium sweet potato or yam

1 tsp. olive oil

1/4 tsp. Himalayan salt (optional)

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Scrub potato; pierce several times with a fork and place on center rack. (My note – place a foiled lined cookie sheet under on the next rack to catch drippings) Bake for 35-45 minutes, or until fork tender. Remove from the over and cut a 1 1/2 inch cross in the center of the potato. Season with oil, salt, and a seasoning blend if desired.

Garlic Veggies – 1 serving (I doubled this so I could eat it tomorrow)

2 tsp. olive oil

1 Tbsp. water

2 Tbsp. lemon juice

1 1/2 tsp. Bragg Liquid Aminos, to taste

2 cloves garlic, crushed

1 medium carrot, cut into thin diagonal slices

1/2 medium head broccoli, cut into bite sized florets

1/2 medium zuchinni, cut lengthwise then sliced

1/4 red bell pepper, cut into 1-inch strips

The Skinny on the Ultimate Reset – Day 11

I am over half way through the Ultimate Reset!!!!!!

You won’t believe something I’ve decided since about day 7…..drinking coffee MIGHT be a thing of the past for me!!??!! I know. I’m like significantly known for being everything coffee. But once I got over my withdrawals I realized how much I naturally feel better without it!?!?

Aside from green tea or my unicorn blood — I am also going to stay away from anything caffeinated at this point.  Ive fallen in love with Teeccino though!!

I’ve also resolved for the next 6 months I’m going to plan out in FULL DETAIL & PREP allllll of my meals eating at least 3-5 vegan meals each week.

You never think it’s possible but ITS TOTALLY POSSIBLE for you too!! The first 5 days were hairy I won’t lie.  Not because of what I could or could not eat, but the feelings associated to not eating my emotions, the actual aches from detoxing, lack of energy while my body was releasing years of toxins and the pains of change.

Overall the food is good minus a few choices like seaweed, tempeh, and mashed garbanzo beans….I am full and not hungry throughout most of the day (as long as I go to bed between 9-10 when I start dreaming about what’s in he kitchen I could nibble.)

So Day 11 was the first day I was tip top shape for the entire day!  Feeling full of energy and life, clear thinking and patient!

My breakfast is pretty much the same for the next 2 weeks! They give you other options such as Miso soup, avocado and mashed chick peas but like I said….. not my ideal breakfast! Fresh fruit will do me just fine!!!  I am in a routine of making myself one and the boys love it too! I read today that fruit in the morning is cleansing and easy to digest for the body!

Tomorrow I need to get to the store for distilled water and more fruit.

Here’s the Skinny on Day  11:

Wake up w/20 oz of distilled water (Mineralize added) and continue drinking this ALL day just not until 30 mins after a meal for digestion purposes!

Take Supplements (Optimize & Detox)

Wait 30 Minutes

Breakfast (fruit bowl above) Try to pick low glycemic and in season organic fruit

Wait at least 2 hours. (I waited 3)

Take Supplements again

Wait 30 min

Lunch

I don’t know that it’s allowed but I usually end up combining whatever mix of food combos they have set up. For instance today was cucumber tomato salad, 1 cup quinoa, and 1/4 avocado…so I just mixed it all in. It looks messy but tasted really great! Instead of the dressing listed (that was mostly the same ingredients as the greek dressing — I just used what I already had made of that) but here’s the recipe:

Cucumber & Tomato Salad courtesy of the Ultimate Reset

(Makes 1 Serving)

2 Tbsp. red wine vinegar

1 tsp. balsamic vinegar

1 Tbsp. lemon juice

2 tsp. extra-virgin olive oil

1 medium cucumber, partially peeled, cut lengthwise then sliced

1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved

1 Tbsp. red onion, chopped

2 Tbsp fresh herbs (I used parsley & basil), chopped

Himalayan salt to taste (optional)

Herbal seasoning (optional)

Combine red wine & balsamic vinegars, lemon juice, and oil in a small bowl, mix well. Set aside. Combine cucumber, tomatoes, onion, parsley, basil, salt, and seasoning in a large bowl, mix well. Drizzle dressing over cucumber mixture; toss gently.

Wait at least 2 hours (I waited 3)

Take your power greens

Wait 30 minutes

Optional Snack – I had vanilla vegan Shako

Wait 2 hours

Take Supplements (Optimize, Detox & Soothe)

Wait 30 min

Dinner

• 1 t. extra virgin olive oil or safflower oil

• 2 T. finely chopped yellow onion

• 1 t. finely chopped garlic

• 1 small celery stalk, cut in thin diagonal slices

• ½ t. peeled and finely grated ginger (I omitted – I hate ginger like a lot)

• 2 C. water

• ¼ C. broccoli florets

• 2 T. chopped fresh green beans (I only had asparagus)

• ¼ C. shredded Napa cabbage or bok choy

• 1 T. wakame seaweed (optional…It makes me hate life so I don’t add this either haha)

• ¼ t. sesame oil

• 1 T. sliced green onion

Directions:

1. Heat EVOO in soup pot on medium heat.

2. Add onion, garlic, ginger, carrot, and celery and saute for 5 minutes.

3. Add water and simmer on low for 20 minutes until veggies are tender.

4. Add broccoli, beans, cabbage, and seaweed.

6. Remove from heat and add sesame oil, green onion, and miso mixture.

1/4 cup quinoa & lemon greens (greens sautéed in extra virgin olive oil & squeeze of lemon)

Finished off the night with chocolate Teeccino in place of coffee or a cheat and I have to say it makes giving up coffee for good a breeze!!

Dude, I’m so ready to be laser beam focused on my goals to lean out before my 2 rounds of 21 Day Fix Extreme  in prep for 80 Day Obsession!!!!

Coach Sneak Peek :: Day 2 ::

Hiii!! So glad you’re back! Before we cover today’s topic I want to share about the different types of coaches! Coaching is NOT a one size fits all! One of my favorites things about it is you can customize it to fit your needs & goals

What type of coach would you like to be?

DISCOUNT COACH: Those who don’t run challenge groups, but who want to save 25% off of Beachbody products and Shakeology.

HOBBY COACH: Those who just want to help a few people (friends and family, referrals) who would like to earn some extra money each month.

BUSINESS BUILDER: (Like Me).. Those who are ALL IN and want to earn enough money to eventually quit their full-time job, and create their own life by design. The moment I signed up and decided to go ALL IN was the moment that changed my life forever.

What type of COACH do YOU want to be? What type of coach interests you? Questions? Don’t hesitate to reach out! I’m here to help!! Speaking of hesitations though…

We’re not supposed to have rolls when we sit or turn to the side….

We’re not supposed to have forehead wrinkles when we smile. 🤷🏼‍♀️

We’re not supposed to have saggy skin that hangs over our shorts after having babies. 🤷🏼‍♀️

We’re not supposed to be — too fat. 🤷🏼‍♀️

We’re not supposed to be — too skinny. 🤷🏼‍♀️

We’re not supposed to be — too muscular. 🤷🏼‍♀️

We’re not supposed to “need” a glass of wine at the end of the day. 🤷🏼‍♀️

AVILA

We’re supposed to talk like a lady. 🤦🏼‍♀️
We’re supposed to sit like a lady. 💃🏼
We’re supposed to be ‘sag’ free. 😭
We’re supposed to be cellulite free. 🙊

🙄Blah. 🙄Blah. 🙄Freaking blahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.

Here’s the thing.

Body shaming is so passé. For real. LAME AF. 🦄

2017 is a year of starting OVER. It’s a year to RELEASE what doesn’t serve us.

Body shaming (from others AND ourselves) isn’t serving us so…BYEEEEEEEEE GIRLLLLL buh-bye 👋🏼.

I see you working.

…and STILL WISHING FOR HAPPINESS.

Why?

Because you need to take the stress out of life. When we let go of the stress, our bodies don’t freak out. No more anxiety. No more cortisol. Better sleep. Full body release.

So pinky promise me. No more shaming ourselves if we have pasta on date night. When your body is FEELING good, it doesn’t want to hold on to the weight.

Balance, yo. Balance. Believer me. I’m just now getting to it too. ✌🏼#letitgo

I used to tell myself I had fat thighs and a big nose.

 

I used to tell myself I had fat thighs and a big nose. Yup, I’d look in the mirror and just be filled with self-loathing. I couldn’t stand the fact that no matter what I did my butt was still too big and my nose felt like it was the entire width of my face. This was 20+ years ago when it wasn’t “Kardashian” to have a big girl bubble butt. It was before Sir Mix A Lot liked them little in the middle but she got much back. Before Jennifer Grey made it cool to have an unusual or large nose. And long before I could do anything to either one with plastic surgery!! I was maybe 15!?

Here’s the thing. What you say to yourself influences what you believe about yourself.

Self-affirmations can be positive or negative. Let’s face it. Probably mostly negative.

My eyes are too close together.

I hate my hair.

I am so stupid.

When is the last time you looked in the mirror and said

I am beautiful.

I am strong.

I love my eyebrows.

When is the last time you told yourself

I am funny.

I am really good at math.

I know how to bring people together.

My best guess is you don’t normally pat your own self on the back behind the closed doors of your mind and I’m begging you right now. Stop. Stop beating yourself up. You are making your own worse thoughts about yourself come true.

Here, I’ll explain…

 

So? Can you do this with me? My call to action at the end was to spend time each day affirming something about yourself in a positive light. One week. No inner self-doubt or hatred. Positive self-talk can increase your self-confidence and curb negative emotions. Be kind. Speak as if you were speaking to a child. Find a place in your heart that only you can make whole and complete yourself.

During the seven days you might find it easier than you thought it would be or need to give it more time and put more effort into it to get it down but either way, it’s a worthwhile step toward bettering your mindset and improving your sense of self-worth.

Let me know in the comments below how it’s going and if you’ll keep it up.
