Ultimate Reset – Day 17

So the one thing I keep hearing from people when I talk about the Ultimate Reset is that they say that “Well when you go off of it, it’ll all go back to normal”… i.e. I’ll gain the weight back and I’ll be face down in a bag of Chex Mix washing it down with […]

Ultimate Reset – Day 16

Well, I finally see a number on the scale that I haven’t seen since before I was pregnant with my daughter.   Pretty darn awesome.  I only have a few days left of the Ultimate Reset and to be honest, I’m going to be sad it’s over.  I plan on doing it twice a year, just […]

Ultimate Reset – Day 15

Day 15 was the first day of the “Restore” phase where you eliminate grains and legumes.  Yep, pretty much all fruit and veggies for the week. I found it to be a little challenging, but it could have been coupled with the fact I made my favorite chicken for the husband and kids to go […]

Mummy Pizzas

Well last night was Halloween.  Every year I make these for the kids.  I usually assemble them before we go trick or treating and just throw them in the oven when we get back.  This year, however, trick or treating was cut a bit short due to weather, so we made them after and they […]

Ultimate Reset – Day 14

Wow… 2 weeks in to this journey.  I can’t believe it.  I’ve made great strides and I’m determined to keep these good habits after the 3 weeks is over.  Today I take my 2 week progress pictures.  I’ll be posting these at the end.  It’s really proof that I’m not just getting rid of “water […]

Ultimate Reset – Day 13

Beets.  The only memory I had of them is when my parents would pull them out of a jar, all pickled and pink.. and … gross… to a young kid anyway.  Nowadays I think I might be willing to try even the pickled ones again… maybe. I have never bought a beet in the grocery […]

Ultimate Reset – Day 12

I know, I’m posting this a day late.   You think that I cheated don’t you?  Nope!  Today is day 14, and I’d usually post day 13… but I was traveling for work yesterday.  I even traveled with my jug of water, and both breakfast and lunch.  I munched on my fruit bowl as I drove.  […]

Ultimate Reset – Day 11

So, Day 11.  That means I’m half way through this journey.  Both my husband and I have been remarking how much better we feel.  We plan on continuing to make most of the recipes that we’ve tried (ok, other than swiss chard… that was my first, and last, steamed swiss chard experience.. buy hey, no one […]

Ultimate Reset – Day 10

Well I think I picked a good time of year to do the Ultimate Reset.  It’s fall… and fall is great for soup.  What I like about these soup recipes is that they’re simple, and they have very few ingredients. I do also make my own hot sauce.  A friend of mine at work taught […]

Ultimate Reset – Day 9

So, there are several questions I’ve been asked about the Ultimate Reset so far.  I figured I could address them all here. First, isn’t it hard to not eat meat & dairy?  My answer is … not really.  If I wasn’t adding some meat items to the menu for the kids, I don’t think I’d […]
