You guys. This doesn’t seem real and I’m not trying to create hype. But I am down 4.8 freaking pounds SINCE TUESDAY!?! Whhhaaatttt!!? K so now the real deal I have been eating and drinking like CRAP for the past month or more, right. I fell back into so super sad eating habits where I’m using food to self-medicate and it’s NOT healthy. I knew that so it’s why I started this 21 days into resetting my body and my mind.
I didn’t come into this expecting to lose a ton of weight and it’s not at all why I’m doing this but if I could see the other side of 130s I would be soooooo stoked!! 130 is my new 120 after adding on a shit ton of muscle the last 1.5 years using some of our crazy amazing programs!
This weight loss is the accumulation of detoxing the bloat and misery that comes from eating too many cheats and lets me honest just not tracking my food at all and at any moment if I felt like eating nachos I’d make a huge plate and eat them while binging on Riverdale episodes. (Oh em gee are you watching it!!? It feels so weird like it’s the comic strip behind the scenes. They should have called it Archie Exposed hahahaha)
Anywho. You guys know I divulge everything and while I was working out I just wasn’t taking care of the nutrition side of myself for the last month or so. And those old habits come back HARD when you aren’t paying attention. Food has always been a comfort to me so when I’m struggling or having emotional issues I find solace in that bag of cheezits. But just like any toxic relationship it HAD to end and I know it’s only day 2 but I feel like a freaking rockstar!!!!
My girls in our group are killing it and I’m just like why did I wait so long to do this program!! It’s like P90X for your insides!!!
I’m not even gonna lie I have not been wanting to work out lately so the fact that they only recommend light stretching or yoga was a huge bonus to me for the next three weeks!
I promise to share more than just food pics for the next 21 days but seriously LOOK at this huge bowl of oats and yogurt with blueberries. It’s one of my favorite breakfasts but I wouldn’t normally even eat this much in one sitting and I’m still staring at half the bowl like “am I gonna try to eat that!?” #somuchfood And I loved loved loved dinner!
Here’s the day 2 detox breakdown:
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)
Wait 30 Minutes
1/2 cup rolled oats
1 pinch Himalayan salt
1 cup fresh blueberries
1/2 cup plain organic yogurt
1 tsp. pure maple syrup
It called for them as two separate dishes but I love yogurt in my oats so I put it all together. And the thought of just plain yogurt with a tsp of syrup didn’t sound good. It called for a pinch of stevia if you wanted.
Wait at least 2 hours. (I waited 3)
Take Supplements again – I missed this alarm because I was bringing food to M at school so I have to wait and take them tonight before bedtime (as directed in the guide)
Wait 30 min
It called for a greek salad with chicken & greek dressing but I had already prepped a few microgreen salads with the basic vinaigrette and I had salmon leftover so I put it all together for lunch.
Microgreen Salad with Homemade dressing
Salad consisted of:
A boat load of spring mix
1/4 C carrot
1/4 C cucumber
1/4 C red bell pepper
1/4 C sprouts
1/4 C tomatoes
1/4 C chopped jicama
1/3 C pine nuts
1/2 Cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1/4 Cup Red Wine Vinegar
1 tsp salt Himalayan Salt
1 tsp raw honey
2 Tbsp Fresh Lemon Juice
2 tsp chopped fresh herbs (I used basil & parsley)
Wait at least 2 hours (I waited 3)
Take your power greens (tastes like wheat grass)
Wait 30 Minutes
Optional Snack – 1 1/2 cup veggies & 1/4 cup hummus
Wait 2 hours
Take Supplements (Optimize & Soothe)
Wait 30 min
Shako!! My favorite shake is not part of the plan until week 3 but honestly it helps me get through the day and with all this damn Halloween candy around I HAD to have my shake!! I intend to keep it in the plan everyday if at least 1/2 scoop worth.
Wait 30 mins to 1 hour
This was freaking bomb! I didn’t even miss having the meat! Which I still can’t believe!
Southwest Veggie Taco
1/2 cup black beans
1/2 tsp. extra virgin olive oil
1 dash ground chili powder
1 pinch ground cumin
1/4 tsp ground coriander
1 tsp Bragg Liquid Aminos
Himalayan salt to taste
3/4 cup brown rice
1/4 medium avocado
1/4 cup cooked corn kernels
1 (6-inch) corn tortilla
2 Tbsp pico de gallo
Combine mix and assemble into your tortilla and top with avocado and pico de gallo.
Sooooo delicious and even my kids liked it!!
It says to rest when you feel like you need to so I took an Epsom salt/essential oils bath then napped for a couple hours today. I intended to do the yoga portion of my workout but honestly just kinda stretched on my mat. Which is totally allowed. I just finished up shark week and feel extra tired so I’m just listenting to my body and doing what feels good.
If you’ve tried everything else like me or maybe you just want to feel more energy we should be talking about this! I have a wave of babes starting Monday and then your next chance is with another round right after Thanksgiving! Because idk but I want to feel good coming into Christmas like yah baby! I did this during the hardest time of the year and won’t even be sweating any New Years resolutions!!
