Ultimate Reset - Day 9 - Recap (and days 6 - 8 too!)

Thank you for your patience as I stayed offline this weekend so that I could be more present and engaged with my family.  I know I owe a few days' worth of updates.  I'm going to condense it and skip some of the pictures.  You can see all of my meals on my Facebook Page: Fit & Healthy Mommy (if you click this link, you'll be taken right to the album).

Today was day 9 for me in my Ultimate Reset.  Yesterday began week 2 - the Release phase.  It's centered on Detox.  There's a Detox supplement I am taking three times a day.  The Detox is in powder form and is mixed with water.  It's not very good, I won't lie.  I was told to suck on a lemon wedge before and following the drink - and that helps tremendously with the taste.  (FYI, I'm not running to the bathroom all day, if that's a concern for anyone reading this.  haha!!)

It's been an interesting few days. I feel pretty good, but I admit that I did cheat yesterday.  I did great even while at the Orioles game (I brought my salad for lunch) but just before the 7th inning stretch, I caved and had 2 beers.  I have been avoiding alcohol as required with the Reset.  That led to a less-than-healthy dinner decision.  I am not at all feeling guilty or frustrated by this though.  It was Mother's Day and my kids wanted to take me out to dinner after the O's game.  We had a wonderful time!!

Right back on track today though.  I'm feeling less foggy this week and am sleeping better, for the most part.  I would love to say that I am naturally waking feeling well rested, but in truth, I have been sleeping in for a few days (I love weekends!!)  I'm interested in seeing how the next few mornings go.

I have not been doing my morning stretch and breathing, and I have noticed a decline in my positive mood each morning.  Therefore, starting tomorrow morning, I'm right back to it.  I have been working on other self-care methods, though.  Dry brushing a few times a week prior to showering (it's an awesome way to remove external know, our skin is our largest organ and we do take in a lot of toxins each day through our skin).

Moving on - here are the pics from yesterday and today.  As I mentioned above, you can view all of my Reset meal pics on my Facebook page:  Fit & Healthy Mommy

I tried adding the Detox packet powder to vegan capsules.  It took 22 capsules!!  It was time consuming, and I did not enjoy taking 22 capsules at one time.  I'll take the drink going forward, but with lemon before & after!
