She told me, "The Ultimate Reset is kind of like pregnancy. The 1st Phase/Week is like the 1st Trimester: You feel exhausted, challenged, and, really... like crap. The 2nd Phase/Week is like the 2nd Trimester: You feel AMAZING. Full of energy. Excited. Seeing change. On top of the world. The 3rd Phase/Week is like the 3rd Trimester: You wonder how much longer you can do this. It's a true test. You're OVER it. OH-VER-ITTTT. Then, a year later, you remember the outcome, how happy it made you, and you're ready to do it again." LOL....IT'S SO TRUE!!!!
Will I do The Ultimate Reset again? I don't really want to talk about that right now (lol)...but, I know my answer in 6 months will be YES! Absolutely. But, for now...we're riding the struggle bus. lol
Today's breakfast: Fruit Plate! (3 cups of fruit) - Pears, Cantaloupe, and watermelon.
Today's lunch: Moroccan Carrot Salad over 3 cups of Salad Greens. I was pleasantly surprised by the flavor and yumminess of the carrot salad - clean, sweet, a little salty, with a spice to it! Then, I tried to eat all of it and just felt bleh. Too many raw veggies for me. The plus side - I couldn't finish and I was full - I tried something new that I DID like...but, I didn't want to eat several cup fulls of it lol. I would make it again ...but, only as a small side on a salad.
Tonight's dinner: Delicata Squash and Broccoli.
How I Feel: Like I said above, over it. Not frustrated. Just over it. I have a new appreciation for those who eat a RAW diet after today's lunch - that takes some intense WILLPOWER. I'm not tempted to quit...I'm just looking forward to the finish line THAT much more. I want some crock pot CHICKEN stat!!! haha
Stay tuned for my Day 18 Review...
