Ultimate Reset - Week 1 Day 2 Recap

Hi friends!!  Week 1, Day 2 of my Ultimate Reset is closing and overall it was a good day.  I will admit that I had some struggles, but overall, I'm feeling pretty good!!  It's only day 2 but I am looking forward to my posts on Days 19, 20 & 21.  I can seriously imagine the feeling of accomplishment!

My food was the same as yesterday.  I didn't want to waste leftovers so I repeated last night's dinner, and breakfast was on the run so I opted for quick oatmeal again.  I was feeling a little more hungry today and I took time to reflect on how I was feeling each time - to determine whether it was hunger or habit.  A few times I was hungry, but I opted for water.  Tomorrow I think I'll add a snack in if I need it.  I did miss my pre-dinner supplements because my afternoon ran into evening so quickly that I ran out of time.  Otherwise I'd be eating dinner at 8 PM.  (The supplements are taken and then I have to wait half an hour before I can eat, then 2 hours - at least - before my next supplements and so on.)  I added the missed supplements after dinner.

I will say that I am having a little trouble with the Alkalinize.  I am usually pretty good with green smoothies and juices, but this stuff is GREEN.  I had all 3 girls smell it and all 3 of them made stink faces.  Hahaha!!  Whatever, it's good for me and is helping to restore my body internally, so I'll hold my nose and drink it every day (read: shoot it back).

My energy is good!  I thought I might feel sluggish today, but maybe that will hit tomorrow or Wednesday.  I set my alarm and got up at 5:15 this morning.  That wasn't easy - I wanted to hit snooze and roll over.  But, I did it - I got up and I did a 25 minute morning yoga (DVD).  It was actually a really fabulous way to start my morning.  I turned on a dim light, light a relaxation candle, and faced the windows so that I was able to see the sun rise.  I hope to start most day like this.  It set my mood (peaceful) for the day and I felt a little less frazzled during our first school morning routine following vacation.  Maybe another 19 days of this will truly help to calm me.  I'll keep posting about it as I go through this program.

5:30 AM - Yoga
7:30 AM - Oxygenize, Optimize & Mineralize w/12 oz water
8:15 AM - Breakfast
1:45 PM - Oxygenize, Optimize & Mineralize w/12 oz water
2:30 PM - Lunch
4:30 PM - Alkalinize w/4 oz water
6:30 PM - Dinner
9:15 PM - Oxygenize, Optimize & Mineralize w/12 oz water (this should have been prior to dinner)

I think I had around 90 ounces of water including each 12 oz with my supplements.  I should have had one more 25 oz cup, but it was cold today and water always chills me further, even if it's room temp.  Tomorrow I might start my day with warm lemon water.

Do you have any questions regarding my Reset?  Please feel free to comment here and ask, or email me at  I'm happy to share throughout this program.

Also, Beachbody has provided me with my personal Ultimate Reset Website - If you want more details about what's included in the Reset program, be sure to check out my site!

Breakfast: 1 cup gluten free oatmeal; 1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt; 1 cup blueberries
Lunch: microgreens salad with veggies, 1T raw pine nuts, 2T Bragg's Healthy Vinaigrette dressing (I should have made my own dressing, but I was so hungry, I used my healthy option)

Dinner: leftovers from last night - Baked salmon; 3/4 cup steamed potatoes; 1 cup steamed asparagus - just as good as it was last night!

I love the little travel pouch that comes with the program.  I had to take my pre-lunch supplements on the way to preschool pick up today.


  1. Really appreciate this post. It’s hard to sort the good from the bad sometimes, but I think you’ve nailed it!
