So in case you didn’t know I started this thing called the Ultimate Rest. It’s a 21 day cleanse from Beachbody that helps you rid your body of toxins and fills it with whole, clean foods. I’ve had some amazing food so far (well I’ve mostly been eating the same things, but that’s because it’s so yummy I just want to keep eating it) and I am feeling really good. Here’s a recap of days 2 & 3 on the Reset!
Day 2: I felt really great and even felt the need to do a small workout so I did the 10 min ab video from the 21 Day Fix Extreme. It’s recommended that you do not workout on this program since your body is working so hard to get rid of the toxins, but I felt ok and decided to try a 10 min workout. I felt great afterward, made my lunch and that’s when I started to feel a little tired so I decided to take a quick 30 min nap. Later that evening I had a crazy headache (probably from my body detoxing) so I drank some green tea, took some ibuprofen and went to bed. This morning I actually felt really good. So it’s on to day 3!
Day 3: So today is day 3 and I woke up feeling really well rested. The weeks before this Reset I have not slept well at all. I would wake up several times a night, toss and turn constantly and wake up not being able to go back to sleep. Last night I slept great, did not wake up as often as usual and slept in until 8:45 a.m. I usually wake up at 7 a.m. or earlier (when I don’t set an alarm) but not today. Now it could have been because I had a headache and so I was more tired, or maybe my body is exhausted from detoxing itself, but I was happy with the extra sleep! I’m also excited to try some new recipes today and to possibly get in another great workout!
