I am completely RESET ya'll :) How do I feel now that the Ultimate Reset is over? Pretty freaking FANTASTIC. I'm sleeping better, my stomach issues are gone thanks to the lack of dairy, I'm not craving sugar, and I feel strong. Energized. Feeling so refreshed and positive and in a great mood. I lost 24.6 lbs and 15.75 inches overall. Most of the inches were in my core but they came from all over - bust, waist, hips, thighs, arms. Comparison photos...night before I started to the last night of the reset. I didn't post the morning as the comparison because I wanted to keep it consistent.
As I mentioned before, moving and everything else in the month or two before the reset had really given me a fluffy middle and stress was causing me to have some bad habits resurface. My goal of the ultimate reset for me is never an amount of weight. It is a tool in my portfolio that I use to bring my habits into alignment with my goals so I can continue with success down the line. And for the second time I feel like this program has done that for me, so it's definitely rated a successful endeavor for me for that reason. I'm in this for the long haul :)
So what is next for me? Right now I am getting back on the workout train with all the DVDs I have at home and yoga. I am planning on a mix of Les Mills Combat, Les Mills Pump, and TurboFire. I am doing these workouts to get back into the groove of things and to start getting my body ready for INSANITY. My INSANITY challenge group starts May 20th (deets here!) and I know that after not working out for 21 days I need to ramp up for that. I did Les Mills Combat 30 min Kick Start today and it whipped my butt...that's why I need to ramp up.
Diet wise, I am going to continue eating vegan for a few more days at least, then adding in eggs and very limited dairy to slowly build back up. I don't plan on being vegetarian for life, but I do plan on sticking to a mostly plant based diet again. That has been working for me very well for the last few months.
