Ultimate Reset – Week One

I’m a week into the Ultimate Reset and down a little oveyogar 5 pounds and my body feels clean and a lot less puffy!

I decided to do the Ultimate Reset as a countdown to our trip to Punta Cana provided to us by Beachbody.  On top of that, it’s our 10th wedding anniversary in May and I want to feel and look great.  Ultimate Reset seemed like a great way to kick off this amazing year!

What is the Ultimate Reset?

It’s a 21 day nutrition program.  I am pairing it with our 3 Week Yoga Retreat available exclusively on Beachbody on Demand and a few short runs in between, but it’s really all nutrition.

For 21 days you are given every single meal to make, when to make it, how to make it and when to eat.  This is my favorite part!  I have to think 0 about what I am going to eat!  It’s all there for me.

You begin the program eating pretty basic meals like salmon and red potatoes, salad with chicken, a rice and bean taco, scrambled eggs, etc.  But as the week wears on meat is removed and by the middle of the second week grains are removed.

You are also drinking (trying to at least!) a gallon of distilled water each day.  You are given a bottle of finely ground pink Himalayan sea salt to add to ygreensou water for electrolytes.

Before meals you will take a supplement called Optimize to help your body better break down the food and absorb the nutrients.  You also take a shot of Power Greens each day which is dried chlorophyl.  I’m not going to say this tastes awesome, because it doesn’t, but you feel so good after drinking it!  I have a nice little energy boost after drinking this.  Depend
ing on the day I will add it to my Shakeology or leave it plain.

This program is a mental battle.  100% mental.  For me that’s comforting.  I like knowing that my body simply needs to follow my mind.  And I like knowing that I am as mentally strong as I am physically.
So far I’m off to a watergreat start!  We even built a deck this past weekend which meant the beer was flowing and BBQ going.  It’s not easy, but I know it will be worth it!

If you have any questions about this program or would like to do it yourself, please let me know!  You can comment here or email me at kristina.d.lewis@gmail.com.

Lewis Boy Wings

I need to give a shoutout to my hubs for letting me use this recipe (you can find him on Instagram at back_porch_dad).  He’s a true carnivore and LOVES wings, but about 2 years ago we made the commitment to stick to the 80/20 rule of eating clean.  Wings were one of the first recipes he had to revamp and these are goooood!

Paleo.
21 Day Fix.
Lewis Boy approved.
And just in time for Father’s Day!

Ingredients:Lewis Boy Winds
Whole wings (drumsticks and wings attached)
Cayenne powder
Crushed red pepper
Italian seasoning or oregano
Buffalo hot sauce of choice (Tabasco brand is pure paleo, but can be hard to find.  Brands like Frank’s have minimal preservatives)
Blue cheese (optional)

Directions:
Preheat grill to high heat
Dust both sides of the winds with seasonings.  I start with the coarsest seasonings first.  This prevents the cayenne powder from blocking the crushed red pepper and Italian seasoning from sticking well.
Grill on high heat until golden brown and juices are popping. (His words!)
After the wings are seared, move them to top rack to ‘bake’.  Close the lid and check and turn periodically.  Depending on the grill, this should take as long as half an hour.
When they’re done, brush on the buffalo sauce.  Let this cook onto the skin for 3-5 minutes.  Repeat once.
Remove from grill and let cool for a few minutes.  Feel free to top with blue cheese immediately after removing them from the grill if you’d like.

Happy eating!
