Progress Report – Ultimate Reset

Today is day 4 on my 21 day cleanse, the Ultimate Reset, and I am feeling pretty good. I have been getting fantastic sleep (and NOT waking up at 4 am to workout is an added bonus) and even when I do wake up to go to the bathroom at night (inevitable with the amount of water I drink!), I am still able to fall back to sleep (that is not always the case during normal routines).

I have been well fed, as the Reset provides you with a LOT of food, and I have been trying NEW foods as the recipes call for them, and it’s fun to try new things and add to your arsenal of recipes, am I right?

I haven’t had coffee in 4 days now, and while I was a little nervous about that aspect (and the lack of cheese!), so far so good. My normal default is to get a headache if I don’t have some coffee in my system by about 10am, so this is a pleasant surprise.

I already feel less bloated, which given the time of month I am doing this during, I would say that is a huge victory!

I resisted this program for so long (4 years to be precise) because I kept focusing on all I wouldn’t be able to have, but I think it’s when you make the shift from focusing on the negative, to focusing on the positive that you set yourself up to be successful. I am far from done, as I am on day 4/21, but I feel confident I can do this, and I no longer see it as depriving me from my beloved cheese and coffee. It’s cleansing me out and adding vitality and vibrancy to my life, and I am so glad I made the decision to commit!

I think the secret truly is one day at a time (except when it comes to food prep for this – that’s more like 3 days at a time šŸ˜‰)
