Wow, so today is Day 1 of my journey with the Beachbody Ultimate Reset and I feel exhausted! I think it’s more of a mental than a physical thing. It just goes to show how much we really depend on our schedules and our patterns. When things change, we kind of freak out.
Today the recipes were all yummy and filling. Dinner in particular was not unlike a meal I normally prepare every week. But the hardest part today was just trying to figure out the exact timing in terms of when to take the supplements, when to drink your water, and when to eat. Also, one of the more difficult things for me has been that we are required to drink water BEFORE our meals, not during. So that will take some getting used to.
I’m going to journal everything so here goes:
Beachbody Ultimate Reset (BUR) Day 1
5:30 AM Supplement time (mineralize, oxygenize, and optimize)
supplements are always taken with distilled water
any time you drink water it must have mineralize (Himalayan salt) added
6:00 AM Breakfast: two scrambled eggs, two slices of Ezekiel bread, and spinach. Not too shabby. I had a hard time eating the whole thing.
10:45 AM Supplement time (mineralize, oxygenize, and optimize)
11:15 AM Lunch: mixed green salad with veggies and homemade creamy garlic dressing
2:00 PM Supplement time (mineralize, alkalinize)
When Beachbody first released the Reset to Elite coaches and staff members I saw pictures all over Facebook of people hold their noses while drinking green sludge. I now know the source of the green sludge and why they are holding their noses! Luckily we only need to do this once a day…
2:45 Snack: green apple with 12 almonds
5:45 Supplement time (mineralize, oxygenize, and optimize)
6:20 Dinner: baked salmon, red potatoes, and asparagus
The hardest part for me was not eating anything after dinner. I typically like to have a little something between dinner and bedtime, whether it be a little something sweet (frozen mini York peppermint patty), Shakeology, or cottage cheese. Also, something that we do a lot at our house is make something for dinner and then have the leftovers for lunch or dinner the next day. We had about 6 oz. of salmon left over from dinner, and I was like, “What are we gonna with this salmon??” I’m not wasting it, so instead of chicken in my salad tomorrow at lunch I’m going to use the salmon. Look at me…it’s only the first day and I’m already breaking the rules!!
