Day 1 of the Ultimate Reset was a walk in the park with a little planning and an attitude of “I am important enough to do make the right choices.” Also known as “not giving a crap” about what other people think.
I chose to start the Ultimate Reset when I was out of work for a week. Doing this is helping wrap my brain around what needs to be prepped, which supplements to take, and how to manage my emotions before I go back to work. Doing a detox is hard not only mentally, but physically. Your body is craving certain foods and may be addicted to the need for sugar, coffee, or the relaxing benefits of alcohol.
I’m all in here and I’m totally hedging my bets. I’m betting on me, but totally stacking the deck in my favor.
Breakfast was a simple affair; 2 eggs, cooked spinach, and a slice of Ezekiel toast. I washed it down with a bit of black tea and started my day.
I had made plans with a friend to hang out at their house. During lunch time of course. I’d be a total jerk if I expected her to make the soup and salad I needed for today, so I brought my own. Thank you meal prep. I tossed my food in a bag with lunch to share with her kiddos and made my way to her house.
Spending time with her and her kids was a great way to distract me from my normal snacking. We enjoyed great conversation with plenty of laughter and shared experiences surrounding raising kids. When it came time for lunch, I tossed my soup in the microwave and dumped my salad from a jar to a bowl. Done.
Did she ask me about my lunch? Sure. So, I told her about my Ultimate Reset and the importance of clearing the toxins from my digestive systems. From there she asked about gut flora. The next thing you know we are chatting all the healthy things and comparing what we’ve read and heard.
Bringing and eating my own lunch wasn’t awkward or weird. It was a great way to chat about how health and wellness are important to us. It’s possible we wouldn’t have even had that conversation if I didn’t bring my own food.
If you’re faced with an obstacle surrounding your health and wellness I encourage you to just pack your bag and climb right over that obstacle. Remember, your health isn’t about your friends or family.
It’s about YOU.
You need to do what is important for YOUR health.
You are the only one who has to live in your body with your capabilities.
