Well, ladies and gentlemen, Sunday completed one week down and now I only have two more weeks to go!
Here’s a short description of the Reclaim phase:
‘During these first seven days you’ll begin to alter your diet, slowly removing foods like red meat and dairy that put stress on your digestive system and tilt your body toward an acidic state. You’ll also be introduced to four of the six supplements that make up the Ultimate Reset™ protocol—Alkalinize, Oxygenize, Mineralize, and Optimize.
In Week One, you’ll rehydrate your body (most of us are living in a slightly dehydrated state) and reactivate sluggish cell function, along with shifting your body’s pH (level of acidity) back toward a healthier, alkaline state, and away from any excess acidity that can weaken your body’s functions.
Once your body has been primed, balanced, and strengthened on a cellular level, it will be primed to continue the process of releasing accumulated toxins.’
Week one food was great – it was a lot of foods that I eat normally like quinoa, tempeh, eggs with spinach, fruit and yogurt, so it wasn’t too shocking, sometimes I just wanted to snack or have an extra serving, but obviously refrained.
Here’s a recap of how I’m feeling:
Mentally: It’s definitely harder this time around than the first. I’m already itching for the end, but I know how happy I’ll be when it’s over, so I’m going to keep pushing through.
Sleepy: Not really, more foggy in the beginning. Now, I’m super alert, getting great sleep, and full of energy throughout the day.
Hungry: Not all the time, but here and there I get stomach grumblings. Mostly mid-morning since I eat breakfast at 8:00am and not again until 1:00pm.
Mood: This is questionable because I was PMSing mid-week, which made me grumpy, for sure! Otherwise, mostly chipper and happy!
What I miss: Working out, cup of coffee, wine!
How I feel physically: Much lighter and less bloated. Clothes are already fitting better!
Weight: I’ve lost two pounds so far. Week two and three is really the game changer and I’m excited to see the results to come! Reports from Ashley are 3 pounds loss and Cali is at 4.6 pounds lost!
It was a decently easy week. I’m ready to keep looking ahead ans pushing through to the end! Stay tuned for more.
