At any rate week 2 of the ultimate reset is in the bag! I will say being a vegan/vegetarian is not bad at all but because I cannot have food it makes me want it! I have lost 6 lbs from day 1 to now and I am so happy with that! My goal from here on out is just to stick to the plan and stay focused. I will admit I have been stressed so I have definitely had chocolate when I shouldn't have but back on track and putting it behind me!
What I have learned so far is that it is really about balance and a lifelong plan, putting a deadline on a healthy lifestyle just seems like setting yourself up for failure. For me I just want to be healthy and stay fit for the rest of my life! I am starting to get the itch to get back into working out. It is almost a blessing to still have sore feet and ankles or I would probably squeeze in some exercise! But I know in the end that will not help this process along. I do love learning all new ways to eat and cook vegetables that I hadn't done before (see coming recipe). I know a lot of this will stick with me when I am finished with the reset. Stay tuned for a full review and progress pics and measurements!
Also 2 new discoveries that you absolutely need to try : wasabi peas and spicy roasted chick peas! If you like spicy foods trust me you will love these and they are super healthy!!
Zucchini Cashew Soup
Take ¼ cup of cashews and soak in water for one hour. In the meantime take 1-2 zucchini (depending on the size) and cube and steam. Once cashews have soaked throw cashews and cubed zucchini in a blender. Blend until smooth. You may add chicken broth or water to increase liquid content. Then take mixture and heat and enjoy! Optional add veggies as well (once you are heating).
