Tips & Tricks for the Ultimate Reset

Now that I have completed the 21 Day Ultimate Reset, I want to share some tips and tricks with you to help you get through your 21 days if you decide todo the Ultimate Reset.

When I started this journey, I had no idea what to expect, how to make things easier and how to not feel completely overwhelmed.  So I came up with some tips and tricks to help myself get through each week and not feel overwhelmed with all the meal planning and shopping there is to do with this program. I’ve decided to share these tips with all of you so you can have a pleasant and easy experience on your own Ultimate Reset journey.  Screen Shot 2016-01-20 at 12.25.28 PM.png

1. I would highly recommend following the “In a Crunch” menu because it’s easier and cheaper than buying all the food necessary for each day and then not using it all.  It also helps to know exactly what you will be eating each day if you follow the “in a crunch” plan because it makes it easier to prep and plan.

2.  Take Alkalinize as a shot in an actual shot glass because it’s gross and you will want to get it over with as fast as possible.  Check out my blog on how to take an Alkalinize shot here

3. Set alarms on your phone for when you need to take the supplement, eat your meals, etc.  (I didn’t the first couple of days and it was hard to remember when I ate last).

4. Try to prep as much as you can before each week to help make things easier. (i.e. bake enough potatoes the week before, cook quinoa ahead, etc.) 

5.  Cut back on all Caffeinated beverages before you start!  This is key if you don’t want to have withdrawal symptoms, headaches, nauseous, etc.  I went on an all out binge the very first time I tried doing the Reset and I felt so sick on the second day that I caved and quit.  This time, however, I slowly detoxed myself from caffeine and junk and it helped a lot.  No headaches or nausea.    

6.  Focus on getting through each week instead of focusing on the end or last day.  When I first started I just kept thinking, “21 days seems so far away!”  But once I shifted my mindset and thought, “just make it to the end of this week” it made it a lot easier to get through and time seemed to fly by so fast.  It was a lot easier to make it through seven days instead of the full 21 days.

The Easy Way To Take Alkalinize

So taking the Alkalinize supplement of the Ultimate is probably the most difficult part of this Ultimate Reset.  Having to do this every day for the entire 21 days of the program, makes you want to find an easy way to do it, so I did.  I came up with a way to make it easier for myself to take alkalinize and I want to share that with all of you, for if and when you decide to do the Ultimate Reset.  Here are the steps that I created and followed for taking the Alkalinize supplement.

What you will Need:
> Shot Glass
> Toothpick
> Alkalinize Packet
> Glass of water with mineralize added

Steps to take:

1. Fill the shot glass 2/3 to 3/4 of the way with water…cold water.

2. Add the powder to the shot glass filled with water.

3. Use a toothpick to stir and mix up the powder and water.

4.  Mix it really well and for a while to break up all the chunks until it’s smooth.  

5. Take a deep breath in, hold it in, take the shot.

6. Chug your water! 

Hopefully these steps will make it easier for you to take your Alkalinize and make the entire process a little easier.  Good luck on your own Ultimate Reset journey!  Feel free to comment below with questions or comments you might have!


Faith Over Doubt

When I started my Beachbody journey back in 2014, I never started to become a Coach. I started so I could lose weight and help myself become healthier and just feel more comfortable in my own skin. I wasn’t thinking of anyone else, just myself. But then I saw how effective the products were. Between doing the 21 Day Fix and drinking Shakeology I was able to lose 10lbs in just 21 days. I felt better, more confident, had more energy than I knew what to do with. Suddenly I felt a fire within myself that I knew no one could ever put out.

That fire was passing what I knew and what I learned through the Beachbody programs on to others, to help improve their lives. I felt it was my duty to help others and show them how this opportunity could change their life like it did for me!

Shortly after becoming a Coach I saw how not only this opportunity could change my fitness, but also my finances, I decided I needed to look at this as a business and not just a hobby. But I was afraid. I was afraid of failing. I was afraid of being judged. I was afraid people would think I was crazy. I was afraid people would say, “no” and reject me. So many fears flooded my mind, and all I could think of were all the ways that I would fail and how this would never work.

I would see other coaches paying off debt, traveling at their leisure and being able to do things I only dreamed of and thinking that I would never get there and that would never be me. But since putting my fears aside and reminding myself daily, that I can do this and I can accomplish anything I set out to do, I have increased my income, grew my business and am living the life I have always wanted.

I am not saying this is easy by any means and I am not promising that you will make a certain amount of money by a certain date. All I am saying is that if this is a life you dream of, then you can have it too! So stop worrying about all the reason why this can’t work or won’t work, and believe in the one reason why it will work! I jumped into this business with both feet and have not backed down once and I don’t plan to. So now the question is, are you ready to take that leap with me? Are you ready to jump in both feet and make a life for yourself, your family that you have only dreamed of? I believe you can do this….do you?

Getting Back on the Wagon

Have you ever heard the expression, “Falling off the wagon”?  Of course you have!  It happens to all of us no matter what it’s with or for.  People fall off the wagon when they are trying to lose weight, eat right, get healthy, read more, walk more…..I think you get the point.  But the fact is, I fell off the wagon, hard!  I fell off so hard I broke both legs and couldn’t even get up to run and catch up the the wagon to get back on.  Now that’s falling off.

I’m the type of person who needs to fail in order to realize how bad or how far off track I really am.  And it took me stepping on the scale to get to that point.  Today I stepped on that scale and wanted to cry.  Seriously, why is it so mean to us all the time?! I know I have been eating very poorly, but I thought since I was still working out that I would at least stay the same…WRONG!  This just goes to show you how important your diet and nutrition really are and how all those little cheats really add up.

So I went to the grocery store, bought all the veggies and a few fruits I could fit in a basket and went to work.  So for the next 6 days, until I go to Chicago for a wedding I will be “cleansing”.  Since I did the 3 Day Refresh back in March, I always go back to a diet I came up with very similar to that to help me get on track when I start to get a little sidetracked.

Today is Day 1 and so far so good!  I just hope I lose this water weight so I don’t feel so bloated for the wedding I am going to next weekend.  Fingers crossed.  Stay tuned for updates and to see how I do in the next 6 days!! Below I added pictures of me now and from after I finished Insanity Max 30.  You can see I’ve put back on a little weight so it’s time to get serious again and get at it! IMG_4101 IMG_4102
