Last time I did the Beachbody Ultimate Reset 21 day cleanse, I was about 160 pounds and feeling in a total funk. That was my first time doing a 21 day cleanse. I just returned from an international move home from Japan back to the USA and a summer of traveling all around the US. I had gotten right up in the 160+ pound range for the first time since losing a bunch of weight with my fitness journey starting earlier that year. I had such a massive weight loss the first time I did this cleanse (13 pounds gone in 21 days), that I decided to do this cleanse once a year, every year, for the rest of my life. Below was me on day 1 of my cleanse last September, 2012.
And this was me (below again) on day 21 of last year's cleanse:
It changed my life and body probably more than you can even see here. I was literally a whole new, reborn woman after that cleanse. I felt better, happier, slept better and was more patient with my kids, need NO coffee and so on. And the euphoric feelings and weight stayed off for nearly a year after that day 21!!! That part shocked me the most. It was not temporary effects.
SO then yea, we moved again. Again. Military life. Yay. We moved another time one year later. Went through learning about a deployment. But I chose this move, this time and hope to be in this current home for a long, long time now. Moving makes me STRESS OUT, emotionally eat, drink tons of coffee (which I swore I would never do again) and just get fat! For real. It does. But I have been working out a lot this past year since the last cleanse. Ran my first half marathon and all! Yea!
So I came into this cleanse 2013 going from about 150 pounds to 155 ~fluctuating the past 6 months or so. The week or two before the cleanse I just ate and drank whatever I wanted. Cookies, pizza, I don't know what I was thinking. Just stress I think. I fell off the wagon. And finally got up to about 159 lpounds. AGAIN. Nearly almost as heavy as all the weight I had lost from last year and had kept off! Until now. I was sad to see the scale jump up recently. I do have a goal of 140 pounds.....someday!!?? But I will admit that about 2-4 of that could be new muscle. Let's hope.
Well. I am currently on day 7 (starting tomorrow AM) on this year's cleanse round. I FEEL AMAZING!!!!! I have already lost 5 lbs too. In just one week. Can you believe it???? I can't. I bet you, I might lose more this year than last. I just might get closer to my goal than I first expected. I feel THAT good this go round. And heck, I am one year healthier from workouts too. Can't hurt. One of my Yoga students today told me that September is a "change month." A month where lots of break ups and get together's, moves and job changes happen. It is traditionally a big month of change. Awesome that I didn't even know that, and have chosen for my yearly cleanse to be in September each year. Awesome. So who knows? All I know is that this cleanse and this company, MY company, Beachbody, make the tippity-top of the line nutritional products. And I do NOT just say that to make sales. I say that because I SWEAR by the life transforming answers this company has provided me in my dump truck of a struggle down a super bumpy road to wellness and vitality and .....happiness. Please come along and follow for the big results as I go through the next mind blowing 14 days!!!!
