Here we are at the end of Ultimate Reset Phase 2: Release. I feel great. My weight loss at the end of week 2 is 9.8 pounds. I know I have lost inches all over because my clothes are fitting so much looser. I will do my measurements after day 21. I am happy that I get to stop drinking the Detox supplement. I did get much better at drinking it though. Tomorrow starts the final phase. Phase 3: Rebuild. This phase has a new supplement called Revitalize. I am happy to see that it’s in capsule form and not powder form. I will still be taking the Optimize, Oxygenize, Mineralize and Alkalinize.
I did end up modifying the eating plan this week. Last night I just felt like I really needed some protein and couldn’t handle the thought of one more serving of quinoa or lentils. I had some ground turkey with my 2 cups of steamed veggies for dinner. I felt so much better after I ate it. So, I decided after that to add a little bit of meat into my meals for the rest of the reset. This really goes against the intention of the reset. I realize that it will slow down my results, but I had to listen to my body. It wasn’t a battle with the mind. If it was strictly a mental battle I would be eating the sweets, chips and cheese that I have been craving. I am going to avoid those things for the remaining 21 days as well as staying away from coffee, Diet Coke and sugar. I really admire the folks that are able to stick with the plan 100% with no straying.
My husband and I are going to start a hybrid program of P90X2 and Asylum. I can’t wait! I plan to start shortly after the reset is over. One thing I’m looking forward to is working out at a lower weight. I’m also excited to learn new exercises an challenge myself.
