Ultimate Reset Day 7

Day 7! The end of Phase 1! The Reclaim Phase!
I can't believe how quickly it's gone by. Looking back on this past week, I was just reflecting on what I learned about myself and my relationship with food.

#1 I eat a lot of the time because I WANT to...not because I'm actually hungry

#2 I've been eating foods that don't serve me- for example: brown rice makes me feel bloated and totally icky. The next day, I felt like a blimp lol 

#3 Since the reset, I've stopped eating and doing a million other things. When it's time to eat, I get off the computer, put the phone away and just FOCUS on my food. Focus on chewing it and enjoying it.

#4 I've decided that I need to make this ice cream and about a million other fun looking dessert recipes! 

Tomorrow I start the Release Phase (phase 2). Phase 2 is about cleaning out your colon, so I'm curious to see how I'm going to feel during this next week. The next 2 phases remove all animal proteins and bi-product. No more eggs, meats, dairy, etc. All veggies and grains. Really looking forward to it.

As far as how I feel, I haven't experienced anymore headaches, no stomach issues and I'm NOT tired anymore. YAY! The other positive is that I noticed that I had more energy today than I have had lately. During the Reclaim phase (phase 1), I did experience some emotional struggles and irritability, but that has gone away now…thank goodness. I think everyone can agree that's a mega bonus! 


The food!

Breakfast1 cup oatmeal with 1 Tbsp. ground flaxseed, ½ tsp. cinnamon, ½ cup chopped apple, and ½ cup organic plain yogurt (sweetened with maple, honey, or stevia).

Men may have an additional ½ cup of yogurt OR an additional ½ cup of oatmeal OR 2 additional Tbsp. of flaxseed. 


 
Lunch1 serving Zuccini-Cashew SoupMicrogreen Salad, ¼ sliced avocado, and 1 serving dressing of choice fromrecipe guide
 
Dinner1 serving Baked Tempeh, 1 serving any steamed vegetables, and 1 servingBrown Rice. 

Men may have an additional ½ serving of rice OR toss their veggies with 2 tsp. olive oil OR finish the meal with 1 small apple.


Went to fit club tonight just to get out and be social, but didn't workout. It was nice to get out of the house and see friends without being tempted by food!

  2. I'm curious about this, too. Doesn't bode well that she seems to have dropped off the planet. lol
