Ultimate Reset Day 15 of 21 – SO much better!
Wow! BIG difference today! I feel emotionally MUCH better, a bit light headed today though.
**Maybe** part of my good mood has to do with an AWESOME post in my Jiggle Free June Challenge group from Stephen A.
I showed this to Chris who read it and told me that my breath has in fact been a bit “different” during this! Well, thanks! Now you tell me! I have a good man for putting up with me through this! xo
Anyway, I texted Stephen because I was SO excited about his FB post and I get this back from him:
“Thanks Mandy for all your encouragement and help. If you were here I would hug you. I feel so good about myself. There’s no stopping me now.”
Seriously! Give me a minute as I rub the goosebumps on my arms and wipe the tears from my eyes. That is SO going in the “don’t quit” file! There are some days that I feel like “Why do I even bother? Wouldn’t it be easier to just go about my life and not worry so much about other people and their success?” It’s notes and emails like this where I KNOW that I have made a difference and that is AMAZING. It makes me want to keep going, to share more, to help more and it makes me know I am on the 100% right path. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again… No one ever told me how fulfilling being a Beachbody Coach really is. Sure it’s great to get paid for doing what I love, and we all have to pay the bills, but THIS, this lives on in Stephen’s life and it will change his wife’s life, his kids lives and the lives of their kids. I want him to play for years and years with his grand-babbies and spend another 40 years with his best friend and wife. And the thing is I have never even met him. He was simply “given” to me from Beachbody.
Then a few minutes later I was able to help another challenger join my team as a Beachbody Coach! She is ready to pay it forward and help others get in great shape! I was so pumped up with all this GREAT news I HAD to burn some energy and pressed play with Les Mills Pump. I did the 55 minute Pump Revolution and loved it! I am thoroughly enjoying these workouts. They go by fast, are fun and I love the music! Oh, I think I have a new girl crush as well!
I got back on my bike today, not quite up for sunrise but it still felt great to start my day that way. A beautiful fruit bowl, 1/2 papaya, 1 kiwi, couple slices of watermelon, 1/2 cup blueberries, 1/2 cup strawberries and a few cherries. YUM.
Had a really random thing happen out and about, such a cool small world story actually! We went to one of our favorite swimming holes, Wailua Falls and we always start chatting with people down there. I met this nice lady named Lisa (she noticed my P90X had and told me she had it but wasn’t following the meal plan…tsk, tsk, tsk!) As we were chatting she learned that I used to work at Cirque du Soleil and she told me she had a friend who used to work there. Turns out I know here friend as well. It always amazes me that I can sit under a waterfall in Hawaii, talking to a lady from Tennessee who runs a ballet studio and trained my friend and former co-worker that I knew in Vegas! Be nice to people, they are probably just friends you haven’t met yet
After our waterfall chill out time we had lunch on the beach. The salad was really good – such a simple dressing of lime juice, honey and oil. I didn’t eat all the jicama, I’m not sure it was 100% fresh. I ended up eating a bit of leftover edamame and corn succotash when I got home since I missed out on the calories from the jicama. I’ll totally make that simple dressing again though. Who needs bottles when it’s so easy to make your own!
My snack was Vegan Shakeology which kept me full before dinner, good thing too since my baked potato took closer to an hour too cook! Dinner really isn’t the time that I get hungry, it’s mostly after breakfast and before my afternoon snack. Maybe there is something to that alkalinez supplement that keeps me going, I totally notice an energy boost from it. I know it isn’t keeping me “full” and it is only 8 calories, but it sure does help.
Dinner was good, and yes, this is a purple sweet potato. They are local here in Hawaii. It was a giant potato so I figured I should just have half. Garlic veggies were good and I didn’t feel I needed the quinoa so left that out. There is an optional grain for dinners this week.
Wow! This has gotten to be such a LONG post!
Prep for tomorrow -
Breakfast – fruit is easy
Lunch – I’m going for the Asian Salad since it was on the menu today. I’ll prep that to have it ready to grab and go.
Dinner – Looks like it is cauliflower and kale so no prep needed for that one.
Make it a great day!
