I finished my third Ultimate Reset! I lost weight/inches of course…but most importantly my brain feels normal again. Off the processed sugar and ready to move forward normally. After a long time of feeling unbalanced between a contract change, holidays, moving to Minnesota and adjusting to the new job….I finally feel what I would call level again. It’s been a LONG time of feeling unbalanced and I’m really glad I was able to use this program to feel balanced again. Results wise…here ya go:
So now that the Ultimate Reset is over…what is next? Well of course, it’s INSANITY 🙂 I have followed each reset with insanity with fantastic results…so why do anything different now? Especially since Insanity is my favorite workout. I plan on doing INSANITY followed by Asylum Vol 1/2. So about 4 months straight of intense cardio with some weight lifting the last 2 months of that are on the schedule. The plan is that I will reach my goal weight with this combination as long as I keep my diet straight. Which means for me – a heavy on plants light on meat diet. Today was the fit test. I am using #summerofshaunt on instagram and twitter so look it up if you want to follow my progress 🙂
Visual proof of my workout!! If you have a dusty copy of INSANITY laying around the house and want to join me let me know! I’m posting daily motivation in my Facebook group (Team Consistency) so you are more than welcome to join me!
I am in the last week of the reset. Finally! I do love the program but as with anything, you get close to the end and senioritis kicks in and you are ready to have a little freedom for summer.
I have posted a few videos during my journey on my youtube page and put them in a playlist so you can find all of the Ultimate Reset ones easily here!
In general though, I am VERY happy. As usual. I love this program because it delivers results. For me my goal is usually two things – weight loss and fixing my brain about my sugar cravings. Right now I feel that both have been achieved. All of the weight I gained this spring after fumbling through the end of the 21 Day Fix is gone. And I do not feel the intense cravings I did before for all things awful. I actually am looking forward to fixing some of my favorite vegan and vegetarian dishes again. My headspace is incredibly clear and as I see once again what a plant based diet does for my body I am reminded of how wonderful I can feel. So with that – two things to share:
1. INSANITY . Yes, it is going down May 25th. 10 days. I. Can’t. Wait. Please feel free to join me. Dust off your old copy of the program and let’s kick some serious ass (off of our bodies, eh? ) or if you need a copy email me – firstname.lastname@example.org or look in my store and I can help you get a copy in time to start.
2. Tenacious Herbivores – With a few of my Team Tenacity coaching buddies…we have started a plant based recipe/food share. I am SO excited. We are all different brands of herbivores with a common goal of eating more whole foods and plant based recipes. If you are interested in joining us, it’s a Facebook group that you can just join and start sharing. You don’t have to be a vegan or vegetarian. Just have to share plant based vegan or vegetarian friendly recipes. Interested? It’s here: Tenacious Herbivores on Facebook I literally created this group about 30 minutes ago so we are just getting started, ha!
I’m pretty much at the half way point of this reset!
First week is the hardest to me because it’s when you have to decide you are going all in. That you will give up control of your food to the program. Once you get through that, it’s fairly simple to stick with it to me.
Today I weighed in – it was good 🙂 I’m going to share full results at the end but know that all the weight I put in while in my funky mood is gone. Along with the funky mood, bad sleep, and sugar cravings. I feel almost fantastic. It’s almost because I still have a little stuffy nose. It’s not as bad as Monday, but it’s there. I had this my first reset as well. I blame it on the terrible diet I went into each with resulting in a detox in the form of sniffles and a few blemishes. I’m annoyed with both…but I’m ok with it. It means my body is getting rid of junk and resetting.
Meal wise, I’m doing a little remixing here and there to try to not waste food. Last night I made a 3x batch of the Sweet Potato Bisque because my husband said he wanted some but then he said he wasn’t going to eat it. So I have an extra serving since the reset only has it 2x. I’m totally going to eat that again since I have it, most likely on day 12 for lunch and I am so psyched about that. I also have a ton of pinto beans left from making them for the man for dinner so I’m going to actually have that dinner again tonight. It’s really one of my favorites (no seriously…it’s the only other recipe on that link above along with the bisque lol) and I found my favorite brown rice (nishiki) today so I’m going to eat that up!
