Ultimate Reset: Day 2

Day 2: Already noticing the benefits!

How am I only on day 2?! I feel like I've been doing this FOREVER! Maybe it's the constant watching of the clock and meal prepping. Idk, all I know is it doesn't feel like I'm only on day 2! 

How I'm feeling:

-Headache from caffeine withdrawal is still strong (for me and the hubby)
-Emotions are out of whack (I got mad at the dumbest $hit today)
-Have to pee every 5 minutes
-Tired and hazy (dozed off multiple times today- I feel like I'm suffering from narcolepsy! Tip: definitely don't start this on a work day!)

-Digestion is already improved
-Lost 1 lb in the first day
-Not hungry
-Milk supply was crazy strong today and squirting out (probably from the oatmeal)
-No cravings - actually grossed out by processed foods
-Tummy feeling and looking flatter 

Adventure to the Store

We went to the grocery store today and I'm already noticing a huge mindset shift. Every boxed and pre-made item made me gag. All I could think of was "chemical shit storm" as I walked down the aisles. I thought a trip to the store would be a huge challenge and tempt me with forbidden treats, but the opposite happened! I don't think I've ever felt more in control! My body is craving natural, fresh foods already!

The only thing I REALLLLLLY want is coffee. But I keep reminding myself that if I could go 10 months without it (while pregnant), I can survive the next 19 days without my cup of joe! 

Today's cart was filled with fruits, veggies, and grains (quinoa, brown rice, lentils) as we prepare to phase out chicken and eggs in the remaining days of week 1. 

We also went for a walk and played at the park. The fresh air and sunshine did wonders for our moods! Seeing a child's joy at the park is the best cure for anything! 

What we ate today:

First thing: 24 oz water with Mineralize and Optimize supplements

30 minutes later: Breakfast - Oatmeal with blueberries, Yogurt with Maple Syrup
{{Thoughts: This is where I ate a bigger portion to account for BF. The guide calls for a 1/2 c yogurt, but says that men can have 1 cup. So I went with the 1 cup to increase my calorie intake. My hubby was SO miserable this morning. He wanted coffee soooo bad and hates oatmeal...so let's just say breakfast wasn't pretty! I, on the other hand, LOVED it! }}


2 hours later: Mineralize and Optimize supplements
30 minutes later: Lunch - Greek Chicken Salad
{{Thoughts: UH-MAZING! This recipe is going on my weekly rotation after we finish. It was SO delish I'll share the recipe below!}}


2 hours later: Power Greens powder with water

30 minutes later: Snack - Vegan Chocolate Shakeology + banana + peanut butter
{{Best part of the day! This is also where I get those extra calories for BF!}}

2 hours later: Mineralize, Optimize, Optimize supplements
30 minutes later: Dinner - Black bean and rice tacos with steamed kale
{{Thoughts: REALLY good! The recipe called for corn, but I forgot to get some, so I had 2 corn tortillas instead of 1 because WHO eats just ONE taco?! Seriously? The only downside is I became super bloated after this meal- way too much fiber for one sitting!}}


I drank an entire gallon of water today plus a few glasses- which is another reason my milk supply is staying strong! 
I drank herbal black cherry tea after dinner and yum. That's all I have to say about that. 

I did some dry brushing to help my lymph system remove the toxins before taking a shower tonight, so hopefully that helped! You can read more about dry brushing here! 

I fell asleep before I wrote this (like I said, I keep dozing off!) and woke up in a panic! LOL! But I got it done and now it's back to bed for me! Stay tuned for day 3!
