Ultimate Reset Day 1
Today I am starting BeachBody's Ultimate Reset I have been struggling with my weight, being tired, unmotivated, migraines and kidney stones lately. The kidney stones came from uric aciddue to the increased animal protein that I was eating in an effort to lose weight and build muscle and from oxalate which comes from fruits and veggies. The pain from the kidney stones and the fact that they were being caused by the healthier diet I was eating did me in. I felt down and depressed, like no matter what I tried I'd never get back to my fighting weight and I'd never hit my goal. I have been struggling with this for a weeks. I found out about the Ultimate Reset and decided to give it a try. It sounds like just what I need. It claims it will help me move from where my diet was to a completely clean, vegetarian diet. It says it will remove the toxins from my body that are making me tired, sluggish, moody and causing the kidney stones and migraines while lowering my cholesterol so I figured it was worth the try.
I am starting Phase 1 today. I woke up very tired this morning and bloated. I have terrible bags under my eye this morning and look as tired as I feel. I have a slight headache and am retaining water. The scale said 187 this morning which is up 3 lbs from Saturday mornings' 184. I know I did not gain 3 lbs over the weekend but I did eat every meal out so am definitely feeling the effects of all the sodium.
I took my first set of supplements this morning then went on a little walk with the kids. I had my breakfast of eggs and spinach when I got back I have all I need for the rest of my meals this week and am looking forward to this. I will be documenting how I feel on the Ultimate Reset on my blog if you are interested in following along.
