Ultimate Reset Phase 1: Day – 7

I’ve had stomach issues since I was a kid.

I can’t believe I’m already done with week one of the Ultimate Reset.  I’m headed into phase 2 tomorrow and I want to talk about something personal. It’s not a topic most of us like to discuss but it is how we release all of those toxins out of our bodies daily. That right! I’m talking about bowel movements. I’ve had stomach issues since I was a kid. When I was 16, I was diagnosed was severe IBS.  From age 16 to about my mid 20’s, I would all of a sudden have to go to the bathroom without any notice. When I would be out in public, I would have to know where the bathrooms were at all times. As I got older my body changed.  

I went from running to the bathroom to not going at all. I’m not sure if all the meds they gave me for years did this to me or if it’s just my body. I used to only go every 4 or 5 days.  Bloating, cramps, gas, feeling full, upset stomachs, constipation and more medicine was my life daily.  Once I started drinking Shakeology a year ago I was able to get off all of my stomach medicine with in the first month. Shakeology has made my digestion so much better.  I now go every other day and my constipation is gone.  I still get the occasional stomach pains, gas and bloat but nothing like how I used to be.  

Since I started the Ultimate Reset, I’ve been going every morning like clock work.  I’m not running to the bathroom, nor do I have cramps or pains, my body just gives me a little sign like Hey, it’s time to go. My intestines, colon and I are so beyond happy.  I actually feel normal.  I don’t think I’ve ever felt this way my entire life.  It’s true what they say, releasing our daily toxins from our bodies truly help the way our body feels.  When I am constipated I get tired, depressed, I feel fat, my pants aren’t comfortable and then I get depressed and cranky.  In phase two of the Ultimate Reset, I add in the Detox supplement.  I will be having this three times a day.  Morning, Afternoon and Night.  I’m not going to lie, I am feeling a bit nervous.  I’m worried it will make me go more then I already am. It’s not fun being at work, out in public, or driving and needing to find a public bathroom asap.  Everything I have read, says I won’t be running to the nearest ladies room but we will see.

Scary bathroom and toilet
Public bathrooms are scary!

I’m so happy it’s saturday.

I got to sleep in until after 9. Had a full filling breakfast while making my grocery list and meal plan for next week.  I also went on Amazon and decided to order meal prepping food storage containers. I’m excited that they will be delivered today. I think it will really help me with preparing my foods and less clutter in the refrigerator.  This weeks meal plan is mostly fruits, vegetables, grains, beans, avocado, nuts and seeds. Todays grocery shopping wont be as intense as last week. I only need to go to the fresh food market for some fresh fruits and veggies, since I have everything else.

Taste the rainbow! Yum!

This first week has been an emotional roller coaster full of happiness and sadness. I’m so thankful for all the support, I have from friends, family, my Beachbody Team, and from the Ulitmate Reset group that I am in. I’m also very lucky to have Chris in my life. He’s always my biggest supporter.

Marci and Chris
Love of my life!
