Yesterday was Day 5 of the the Beachbody Ultimate Reset, here’s my review.
BREAKFAST – Oatmeal (1 cup) w/Maple Syrup (1 Tbsp), Walnuts (3 Tbsp), and Blueberries/Strawberries (3/4 cup)
LUNCH – Quinoa Salad, Hummus (1/3 cup), Vegetable Plate (10 Baby Carrots, 10 Grape Tomatoes, 10 Slices Red Bell Pepper, and 5 String Beans)
SNACK – Apple w/Peanut Butter
DINNER – Miso Soup, Stir-Fried Veggies, Brown Rice (1/2 cup), Nori Gomasio
I liked all three meals. This is the first time I tried hummus…loved it!!!
SUPPLEMENTS (same for each day of week 1):
MINERALIZE – 4 pinches
OXYGENIZE – 30-45 drops
OPTIMIZE – 6 capsules
ALKALINIZE – 1 packet
Different day, same opinion of the Alkalinize…nasty!
WATER (EXTREMELY IMPORTANT):
Drinking DISTILLED water is extremely important during the Reset. Headaches can be a side effect of the Ultimate Reset as your body is getting rid of all the toxins so staying hydrated is key to helping keep the headaches to a minimum (I haven’t had any yet…knock on wood). I continue to drink a gallon of water (128 ounces) today and will continue to do so for the entirety of the Reset. From my understanding, you’re supposed to drink (in ounces) “half your weight” so considering my weight was 258 on Monday, a gallon of water is recommended.
7:10am – Supplements (MINERALIZE/OXYGENIZE/OPTIMIZE)
7:40am – Breakfast
11:20pm – Supplements (MINERALIZE/OXYGENIZE/OPTIMIZE)
11:50pm – Lunch
3:20pm – Supplements (MINERALIZE/ALKALINIZE)
3:50pm – Snack
7:00pm – Supplements (MINERALIZE/OXYGENIZE/OPTIMIZE)
7:30pm – Dinner
THOUGHTS AFTER DAY 5:
5 days in and I still haven’t had a diet soda!!!
As far as my hunger level today, I was hungriest after dinner again, but I was able to withstand the cravings and didn’t eat anything post-dinner. Through the first five days of the Reset, my after-dinner cravings were the worst last night…still not as bad as they usually are, but worse than they were during Days 1-4. In general, Day 5 was the toughest so far. I was hungry pretty much all day…hoping this subsides.
My energy level was better yesterday, but still not to the level I’m hoping for.
1) Although losing weight is not my main goal of the Reset, I would like to lose 15 lbs after the 21st day and get down to 243.
2) My main goal is to get my body in a better “state” after 21 days as I hope to start INSANITY after finishing the Reset. I tired INSANITY before, but I was in such terrible shape, I only last about 5 days. I’m hoping that after completing this Reset, my body will be better able to handle the INSANITY workouts.
3) After the 21 days are complete, I hope to actually enjoy cooking and I hope to have gained a liking for 4-5 meals that are included in the Reset that I can make on a regular basis. So far, through 3 days, I will say my favorite meals have been the Oatmeal & Yogurt as part of breakfast of Day 2 as well as the Day 2 Dinner of Black Beans & Rice. I will definitely eat these meals post-Reset.
That’s all for now regarding Day 5 of 21 of the Ultimate Reset.
If you have any questions or suggestions to make the Reset better, easier, etc, please feel free to leave them in this thread.
