Ultimate Reset Day 8 of 21 – Some Success Stories!!
I’m SO excited I just heard from a friend of mine, Lynnell L. who just completed her 21 days and she wrote “Here’s to my last day on the Reset! I exceeded my goals – down to 110 lbs and my total cholesterol went down 54 points, bad cholesterol down 42 points – my doctor was amazed! And was able to get my results by customizing my meal plan to boot!”
Then I read this AWESOME testimonial on Carl D.’s blog – from daily vomiting to suffering from fibromyalgia she is symptom free after 21 days! http://www.carldaikeler.com/success-stories-people/so-whats-the-big-deal/
First – here is my recap from Week 1
If you are ready to get started on eating the healthiest you have in years message me NOW or get started at www.eatlikemandy.com. What will 21 days of eating nutritious meals do for you? You’ll be AMAZED!!
Well, well… moving into week number two where I will not be eating ANY animal proteins. No milk, no eggs, no cheese (that was gone already), no fish, no meat. I also add a new supplement today – the Detox. This is meant to flush your system, and flush it will. Just looking at the ingredients of it, organic flax seed, organic chia seed – oh yeah, it’s gonna make things move!
The detox drink was actually what I had first thing this morning. I was a bit nervous… I mean look at it… it’s gritty, it looks like baby poo. You want me to drink that?? But you know what… it wasn’t that bad… It’s sweetened with stevia which you can definitely taste. I love that I can actually SEE the flax seeds – there were a couple that didn’t make it through the grinder – it’s the real deal And I get to have THREE of these a day…. wheeee Yes, I drank it out of a wine glass!
A couple days ago Chris bought a new fancy pants camera so I had some extra motivation to get out of bed this morning. I was up until about midnight last night, a bit later than my normal 10:30-11pm and it was a bit harder for me to get out of bed. Glad I did – I saw not one but TWO rainbows on my bike ride.
So today’s breakfast was just fruit. A BUNCH of it, but still, just fruit. I’ve never had just fruit for breakfast. Chris loves going out to eat and I remembered one of our favorite places offers a large fruit plate as a breakfast option so I suggested that we go there. I was sad to not have my berries and peaches but enjoyed this one and I know Chris liked actually going OUT. The Reset recommends lower glycemic fruits like papaya, melons, berries, peaches, etc. Bananas and pineapple aren’t listed so I left those till last and only had a bite of each. I never cared for honeydew melon and was pretty full after about 1/2 cup of grapes, 1 cup of cantaloupe and 1/2 a papaya.
Lunch – we’re still on the salads. Silly me, I literally JUST re-read the recipe for the salad. I haven’t been getting 1/3 cup of nuts the first week! No wonder I’ve been hungry! Some days it only calls for 2T and I guess I thought that was what I was supposed to have all the time. Those nuts and seeds will make a BIG difference this week I’m sure! Bring on 1/3 cup YAY!!!
Here was dinner – rice with pinto beans, spices and steamed bok choy and zucchini (I ran out of string beans so subbed with bok choy instead)
Today overall felt similar to Day one. No headaches but I’m a bit tired today. I’m also a bit sore from my workout from yesterday. (breakin’ the rules, breakin’ the rules!). I’m officially down 4 pounds. I was at 134 at the beginning and down to 130. I really don’t care about the number on the scale. I’m noticing a bit of difference in the dark circles under my eyes, but I’ll wait to see if Chris says anything about them and I’ll report back
