Our measurements are taken, the refrigerator is FULL and we are prepared to take a few weeks off from exercise and focus on some rest.
While winding down and reflecting on what to share about our great first day of the Beachbody Ultimate Reset, I gotta say it was completely enjoyable, but…it didn’t come without a test for each of us.
Any day that starts with Ezekial 4:9 Bread is a good day, in my opinion…especially when paired with eggs and steamed Kale. While I love all of those items, I’ve never enjoyed them together, and certainly never considered having Kale for breakfast. I will from now on. The rest of the meals for the day were exceptional. This includes the dinner that Katie prepared.
I had to be in St. Louis for a Board of Directors end of the year meeting and dinner (more on that later..), so Katie, who normally doesn’t prepare meals…and certainly not salmon, was left to create in the kitchen riding solo. Well, as you can see by the picture above. She crushed it! Obstacle overcome..
Knowing that I would be on Day 1 of the Ultimate Reset, I made sure that the dinner plan at my meeting would include Vegan options just to play it safe. Thankfully, we were blessed with an AWESOME spread, so while I was not able to partake in the salmon, I did consume a nice mixed green salad, chilled/grilled vegetables and sauteed sweet potatoes, spinach and water chestnuts. It was top notch. The challenge for me was saying NO to the hors’edevoures and wine during the social, and coffee, wine and an amazing dessert table during the dinner. But I didn’t budge.. Obstacle overcome..
As was expected for Day 1, our energy level was pretty high, although we expect over the next few days that that may change based upon what we are hearing from our customers we are coaching and some fellow coaches that have already completed the Ultimate Reset.
We’ll check in tomorrow, were we want to talk a little more about this VERY GREEN Alkalinize stuff…
