Ultimate Reset Week 2 Update

I will admit that the 2nd week really flew by.  A HUGE improvement we made was how we did meal prep.  We would plan the week by prepping for a few days and and writing post in notes on the days that we had to buy fresh groceries along with what meals we had to prepare for the following couple days.  This saved us a lot of stress during the week and a lot of money on not wasting food.  Especially that we are eating fresh fruit every morning, things just need to be fresh!

Another food prep tip is buying a big tub of lettuce (spring mix...whatever) and put the salad toppings in mason jars so you can just grab and go throughout the week.

So the meals...

Still YUMMY!!  Some favorites are posted below so you can get a taste of what it all looks like and to PROVE it is NOT a starvation cleanse by any means.  It still is A LOT of food :)

Results are I am now down 8 pounds and staying strong through week 3!  I really thought I would be bitchy without caffeine and without alcohol but surprisingly I am just so happy and mentally thinking clearly!  I have found strength that I did not know I had through the yoga in the morning (ummmm Warrior 3...hello!) It is challenging and helping me build muscles I swear I have never worked before.  My balance has improved significantly, especially given that I have a week right glute. Yoga has also helped with my neck flexibility as when I sleep on my stomach sometimes, my head always had to be to one side.  Now I can face my head left or right without pain!

One HUGE physically result that I could not be happier about (especially since I will be on a beach in 10 days) is that my acne on my face and even more so on my back has cleared up!  Seriously I never have seen my back like this...even Amanda noticed and was so amazed. (and super excited for me :) )  

So...last week and I can't help but say this has only made Amanda and I closer and stronger together by sharing this journey!
