21 Day Ultimate Reset – Days 4-7 update - January 7th, 2013

We just finished the dinner for our 7th day.  The reset takes place in 3 phases, 1 week per phase.  This first week we have been weaning ourselves off of animal proteins.  Weeks 2-3 are strictly vegan (no animal proteins, including eggs and dairy).   Sitting down at the end of day 7, I can honestly say that it has gone better than I thought it would have gone. It hasn’t been a walk in the park, but it is doable. We have tried some things that were good, we have tried some things that were not so good.  But I feel good that we have tried new healthier food choices.

Tomorrow we start with 2 cups for fresh fruit for breakfast.  I just got done chopping/rinsing strawberries and blueberries. I will chop some green apples in the morning to add to the mix.  The key with the fruit it to find the lower glycemic index fruits.  I made our pinto beans and rice blend for lunch along with a salad.  And for dinner we are going to try the Roasted Red Pepper and Sweet Potato Bisque.  Sounds interesting, doesn’t it?

Still struggling with drinking enough water.  I don’t feel dehydrated but I know that I need to get in more water than I am currently getting.  I haven’t had coffee in two weeks and I am ok with it. 🙂 I had green tea on Sunday for something warm to drink at church, but other than that, I have stayed away from caffeine.  And guess what?  My energy level is good!  But I will keep in mind that we have been sleeping in just a little longer than we normally do.  I am hungry in a normal way.  Not starving.

Tomorrow begins phase 2.  I am proud of my husband and I for sticking with the program thus far.  We start a new supplement tomorrow called Detox.  That will last for the next 7 days.  Wish us well!
