21 days and 10.4 pounds down!
I did this for a few reasons:
- To feel good. I remember the first time I did this program I felt so good at the end; physically and mentally. I needed to fell that again.
- My husband and I are going to Punta Cana in about a month for a trip that Beachbody is paying for. I wanted to feel good on the beach. 😉
- May is our 10 year wedding anniversary. I want to feel good in my body and feel good about the way my clothes fit.
- I needed to feel in control of myself. Food and drinks can be a slippery slope for me. I needed to hit this head on before the summer.
I’m proud to say I feel like I have accomplished all of these!
Blame it on the last week and eggs being so within reach. Blame it on the buisiness of this time of year with vacations and sports. But this last week was hard. I found a saving grace in guacamole and in knowing my mind was clear and sharp. Sometimes when things get hard we have to find one thing we can own. Mine was guacamole and how clear headed I became. I owned that and didn’t want to lose it.
I have done the Reset to two extremes. One was during the heart of summer. We went on vacations, went to the beach, celebrated 4th of July and my daughter’s birthday. We were on the go constantly. The other, this time, was much less nomadic. both have their perks and both have their difficulties.
Even though the first time I did this we were on vacation the entire time, I think I’m more proud of this round. When you’re on vacation and surrounded by people you have some build in accountability there. This time I was working from home and no eyes were holding me accountable besides my own. That’s a lot to carry, on top of running a business, being a mom, wife, business partner, etc. The ownership I have with Round 2 is hard to describe.
In the end, I lost over 10 pounds, nearly as many inches and gained a huge self worth in myself, a control over food and alcohol. This isn’t a one stop quick fix. This is meant to give you a head start into a new life and I’m taking it to be just that.
Cheers to another round of the Reset down!
