So as you may have read here or on my Facebook page, I recently did the Beachbody Ultimate reset. Now fist off let's be clear I have never been one that was obese but I was over weight as a skinny fat girl--gee thanks genetics of a 5'8 lady! But I have lost all the weight and kept it off so this was more about changing habits and having a better relationship with food and vegetables (see previous post!)
So here are my results!!
I am 5'8 as I said
Before weight: 138
Before body fat: 17.8
After weight: 130
Body fat: 16.8
Not only do I have new veggie recipes but I lost the holiday weight plus some extra body fat!!
Now what? Time to plan and prep for body beast and bring on the muscle!
What is your workout plan like?
How often do you change up your work outs?
So I think it is UBER important I share every step of the way with this process so that is the plan!
Day one was definitely a shock for my body! From eating Christmas cookies as a meal a few days prior to eating 100% clean meals! I must say I did miss cooking, something I really do enjoy about "being an adult". At any rate the foods are so delicious it is not like any other cleanse or detox I have ever followed which is great because those are BRUTAL! I mean yes they work but my goodness, yup, I am a huge weenie with this stuff!
I was definitely a little fatigued by the end of the day from my body not having the what became usual, sugar/caffeine intake it was used to. But other wise I am feeling great about the food choices and changes coming!! As I am writing this it is the start of day 2 so I am already down 2 lbs!! Cannot wait to share the progress shots and measurements with you guys!
So how does it work?
think of it as pushing the reset button on your body. As we eat/live we ingest not only the chemicals in our food but in the environment as well and our bodies hold on to these. With the reset, the goal is to rid your body of all toxins and help you recharge.
It is a 21 day program with pre-planned meals and supplements to keep you on track. The only thing that sucks for me is, you cannot work out. Why? GOD I KNOW! I asked the same thing! ugh but the reason is that your internal chemistry and organs cannot clean up and detox your body if it also has to heal your muscles from the stress exercise puts on it. The body needs to focus!
