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?

Help! I’m Gaining on the Ultimate Reset!

So it’s been a few days since I’ve talked to you about how I am doing on the Ultimate Reset.  In case you are just tuning in and this is the first of my blogs you are reading, the Ultimate Reset is a Beachbody program designed to help you clean out your internal system to make you healthier and restore your body to it’s optimal health.  So I am on day 14, the last day of the second week and I want to share with you all that i have gained through doing this Reset.  Yeah that’s right I have gained…..a lot!  12485950_528251800682165_3437437792576524093_o

I’ve shared with you how much I’ve lost while doing this challenge (6lbs!) but I haven’t really shared what I have gained.  So let me share that with you here. In the past 2 weeks I have been sleeping a whole lot better!! I used to be that person that could never fall asleep, I would wake up 5-6 times throughout the night and could never go back to sleep.  Now I fall asleep almost immediately when my head hits the pillow.  I don’t wake up as often (usually just to go to the bathroom) and then I fall right back to sleep.  Before the Reset, I could not wake up in the morning.  I could not get out of bed to save my life! I still felt exhausted and like I got no rest while I slept.  Now, just 2 weeks, I wake up feeling like I have the most energy ever!  I don’t eve fall back asleep when the alarm goes off.  In fact, I can’t go back to sleep. I’m up and ready to go!

12401789_526809240826421_1359060485296605715_oThroughout the day, I have so much energy I feel the need to workout just so I can burn some of it off.  My mood is better, I have no more headaches, no sluggishness, and no afternoon crash!  Now I am not saying this is a 21 day thing you can do and be set for the rest of your life.  Because if you want to keep feeling this great, you have to keep up with the healthy eating habits and working out.  This is not a diet, this is part of a lifestyle change.  I have been so focused on the scale during the first week because that’s where I was seeing the most change.  That and my physical transformation.  I was so focused on the scale, I missed the emotional and mental transformation I was experiencing.  12440363_526599920847353_6651268537334587159_o

So now I am staying off the scale for a while and focusing on what I am gaining in this experience, instead of only what I am losing.  I hope this helps others going through a physical transformation to see that there’s more to gain than just the number on the scale.
