The Skinny on the Ultimate Reset – Day 17

Wow!? Who am I!? It’s been sooooo Hard for me to get up before starting this detox and here I am bouncing out of bed before my alarm. No blurry eyed creep to the kitchen to fire up my tea cup and I’m diving into paint projects before I wake the boys up from school!?!?! What in the heck!?!

I had no idea sleeping soundly would be such an amazing benefit to this 21 days and honestly might make even my worst food day worth it!! As a mom we never expect to get a good nights sleep because even if the kids don’t wake us up we still listen for every noise, whisper, thud, and breath. But I am KNOCKED OUT at night and ready to wake up when or before my alarm goes off. There is so much beauty in waking up refreshed I had no clue what I was missing!!!

Here’s the Skinny on Day 17:

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 fresh fruit (I blended a cup of mango into my Shako)

Wait at least 2 hours. (I waited 3)

Take Supplements again

Wait 30 min

Lunch – called for Morracan Carrot Salad with 3 cups of greens (not pictured – still steaming) and it just wasn’t in me to make it so I roasted some asparagus and steamed the carrots it called for and called it good. I’m usually great at meal prep but this final leg of the cleanse I’m not super excited about it.

Wait at least 2 hours (I waited 3)

Take your power greens

Wait 30 minutes

Optional Snack – I used my oil allowance from lunch to mix up this beauty. 1 Tbsp of coconut oil and 1 Tbsp of Shako vegan chocolate then 5 mins in the freezer and this was worth it!!!

Wait 2 hours

Take Supplements (Optimize, Revitalize & Soothe)

Wait 30 min

Dinner – again. Food fail because I just wasn’t into what was called for so I made a 1/2 sweet potato with mixed veggies (zucchini, broccoli, red pepper, and asparagus)

I think what’s awesome about this plan is how easily you just revert to fruits or veggies with no desire to cheat. I could have easily eaten the steak the kids were eating but other than it smelling good I had no desire to eat it.

It’s my BIRTHDAY MONTH!! Where my scorpios at!!? Scorpio is exotic and magnetic, as deep as the sea, and, depending on our mood, as calm or as tempestuous.

♏️

Scorpio likes clear endings and beginnings, with no grey areas in between.

♏️

Scorpio tends to be possessive of their loved ones and also find it extremely difficult to trust people and are therefore very secretive.

♏️

We are lovers AND fighters depending on which side of ours you’re on. We will will take secrets to grave unless we are driven to do otherwise, or unless we think you’ve wronged us.

♏️

We are intuitive AF. We know something’s going to happen before it does and can easily read people .

♏️

We tend to be self-destructive because we are fearless and stubborn even when life gets a little tricky. We’ll take one to the chin and keep going.

♏️

Self-confident, resourceful, and strong. Where my scorpios at? 🎂🍾🎉Happy Birthday, boo ❤

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!

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)

The Skinny on the Ultimate Reset – Day 13

Phew! Today I was IN THE ZONE!! To say I’ve battled every negative thought and emotion every minute of every day is an understatement. I’ve tried to have temper tantrum’s over the food only to realize it’s a breeze and I actually constantly feel full. I’ve tried to say it’s too hard to shop, prep, plan when in reality I save more time by doing so. And probably to be honest a lot more money!

I keep giving myself that moment to just break and make nachos or pick up a pizza but then I realize the number of women counting on me and the number of times I’ve quit on myself — and there’s no way I’m giving up on one of those things this time!

I thought I would be a lot more emotional at this point of the 21 days just from what I had read so far from others who’s gone through it but honestly I have no complaints, worry, emotional break out or bad feelings to speak of.

I attribute that success to plenty of Epsom salt and essential oil detox baths, as well as, resting whenever I need to! Meaning sleeping whenever I feel like it and going to bed early! 2 things I NEVER allow myself to do regularly. I have been pushing so hard this year on my goals I wasn’t recognizing that it was a detriment to my physical and emotional well being. Definitely going to remind myself when I’m feeling worn down that I need to do things daily to feed my soul and take care of me.

Here’s the Skinny on Day 13:

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!

I’m having tea every morning at his point because it’s cold as balls all of a sudden now and I can’t even handle the freezing temps I’m waking up to! I even pulled out my heating blanket for sitting on the couch!

Slight rebellion going on. I’m not super stoked on some upcoming recipes and this zero to no carbs (from rice and grain) thing is KILLING me. I use carbs to power up my creative energy and learning to source that Out has been HARD!! That being said I didn’t eat what was called for and instead modified this to show you that if you have grace & patience with yourself you are more likely to see this to the end rather than quit!!!!

I chose butternut squash in Italian herbs, steamed broccoli &carrots, and the teensiest scoop of rice imaginable just to soothe me and remind me that I CAN do this for 8 more days!!!!
