So today starts the 3rd day of the reset. I feel SO much better after 2 days of super clean eating that it's amazing. I know that food can heal and that food is the best medicine, but it's always amazing to feel the change. As you can see in the picture below, the food on the reset through day 2 still includes meat and also has a lot of grains and variety. I was definitely full all day. I don't typically eat oatmeal, but maybe I need to add it in more again...it's always really good when I have it...then I guess I forget, lol!
So that is what I ate yesterday. This morning I took this picture. My body looks better, closer to how I looked when I finished Insanity. My stomach bloat is almost all gone and my stomach aches I started to get again have disappeared again. I really am starting to feel back to normal..the way I felt back in early February.
I am shocked honestly at how little cravings I have. Before this I was craving everything again....crap food, junk food, sugar, quantity over quality...all of the things that made me 300 lbs before. And it scared the crap out of me. I know it was stress related, because that is when all of this started. But I didn't really appreciate it until I started doing this reset. Right now I have more free time because I'm not working out, not doing so much laundry, not rushing to bed...essentially creating the me time I need by making my life a little simpler. And that then means my stress is naturally much lower...and that makes everything with diet so much easier. I need to file this little lesson away - next time I feel like I can't handle myself and food it's time to s l o w it down. Take more time for myself. I'm taking that right now. I'll be focusing on doing more personal development, talking to positive people, sleeping, spending time with my husband, spending time with my sister....just taking the reset literally. Letting go of the baggage and crap and letting in the positive and calm.
