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 😉)

Truthbomb Tuesday – Uninspired

Time for a truthbomb!

One of the biggest excuses people give is “I’m too tired”, and I get it. Life is exhausting; I feel you there!

But I don’t think it’s a matter of being TIRED… I think it is more a case of being UNINSPIRED. When you truly want something, it fuels that fire inside of you – you feel jazzed to get to work on it, you draw energy and inspiration from taking action.

Don’t work 8 hours at a job and then go home and NOT work on your OWN goals… if you truly want to achieve these things, you will take at least one step every day towards them, no matter how big or small said steps are.

 

 

Self Love Saturday – One Day At A Time

Much as we wish it would, no change happens over night, and the same goes for building your self-worth.

By taking each day one at a time, you feel more capable. It doesn’t seem as overwhelming when it’s broken down into smaller chunks, such as 7 days instead of one week.

And not all days will be up, just like not all days will be down. There will be ebbs and flows, good days and less good days. But each sunset closes out that day and each sunrise brings a new one forth.

Love yourself and take each day as it comes.
