Orientation Week and the end of Reset

Perspectives from Elizabeth:

This week was Orientation week for the incoming pharmacy students and this is my lone picture.  It has been a busy week and I missed taking pictures of our meal, but the corn-edemame succotash above is one we will be eating again after the Ultimate Reset.  It has been a week full of events!  I am really proud of how far I have come and am excited to continue to eat more veggies and home cooked meals even after we have completed the Ultimate Reset!

Well we have successfully completed the Ultimate Reset program and are feeling great!  I am down 8.5 lbs and 2 inches around my waist and Rene lost 11 lbs and 2.5 inches.  How I felt was definitely a wonderful motivator throughout the program!  I am looking forward to planning our meals and incorporating new recipes and more veggies into our diet.  I am also looking forward to some chicken!  I do not think of myself as a big meat eater, but after 1 week of eating Vegan, I am excited to eat cheese and meat!  While, I will still splurge and enjoy eating at restaurants, I feel like I have more control and will be able to eat without over doing it.  I am also hoping I will continue to have control over my eating and not eat secondary to my emotions!  More than anything, the most rewarding thing for me completing the Ultimate Reset was learning to not eat based on my emotions/fatigue.  I am also amazed at what a BIG difference your diet can make on your well being!  I plan to continue the blog with our journey after Ultimate Reset and hopefully give you some yummy new meal ideas!  Thanks for reading!
