Wahoo!! I am officially done with the Beachbody Ultimate Reset!! It was an interesting 21 days and yes it was trying at times, but I learned just how strong I am mentally.
Going through this journey with the Ultimate Reset not only did I lose weight and inches, but I learned so much about how important it is to fuel your body for health and not just eat to satisfy emotions or taste buds. These 21 days have really changed how I think about food. Another thing that I learned that is so important is preparing meals ahead of time if I now I’m going to be out. Some days I did not want to stay up a little later to make my meals for the next day, but I did it anyways.
The only time that I did not stay on track was when I did communion at church. Yes, when hubby got out the ice cream I wanted some so bad, but I stayed strong and didn’t eat any. We went to parties and I either ate before, after or brought my food.
Some of my favorite recipes that I am continuing with are Zucchini-Cashew Soup, Carrot-Seaweed Medley, Coconut Collard Greens, Greek Salad, Mediterranean Roasted Beets, Microgreen Salad, Roasted Root Medley, Roasted Veggies, Sweet Potato and Roasted Red Pepper Bisque, and Creamy Garlic Dressing. I love just about all the meals except for the Roasted Fennel. It tasted like black liquorice, blee.
For the next 2 weeks or so I am going backwards a bit with the Ultimate Reset and slowly introduce things back into my diet and see how my body reacts to it. The only thing I will not be adding back is grains and legumes because of my gluten intolerance and honestly, I don’t miss them or the way that they made me feel. I did have quinoa once during the Reset and it made my stomach very unhappy.
It’s all a learning process as to how your body functions and reacts to certain foods. Every one is different and has different needs for their body. Your body functions different from mine, so my way of eating might not be right for you. The key is to find the way that works for you and YOUR body. It will take some experimenting and trial and error, but you will eventually find what works for you.
