Starting Again

I’m 33. It’s 334 days until I am 34. The reality of my life is it is lacking. I love my job, and it is fulfilling. But I still don’t feel like I’ve fulfilled a great purpose. I’ve been questioning it for 10 years, fluctuating between happiness and depression. But I’ve decided to put on my big girl panties and begin again. I’m not getting any younger right?

This week, I made my first step. I’ve decided that my health is my number one priority this year. Last year, I ended up in the ER thinking I was having a heart attack. Officially, my diagnosis at the ER was a panic attack. Another occurrence happened when I was in NYC, though I didn’t go to the ER. I just freaked out thinking I was dying alone in a hospital room. Not a good feeling. Overall, my health couldn’t have been it that terrible of shape. At my annual physical, all of my numbers were in the normal range. But still, when you have pains in your heart, and the heart begins to race, you wonder. Plus, I just ache all over. I’m out of breath at times. And my clothes no longer fit.

Because of all these reasons, I began the Beachbody Ultimate Reset. I chose this program over others because it’s step by step. They provide a book with recipes and it tells you what to eat and when. It’s a three step process: Reclaiming your body, releasing toxins from the body, and restoring the body’s digestive system, optimizing it. It’s not easy, but it’s not the hardest thing I’ve done. The food is easy to prepare for the most part. It’s just all about the preparation.

I’m currently on day 3. In just three days, I’ve noticed  I’m already feeling more energized and my sense of smell is improved. This could just be because I’m removing junk from my diet. I’m not drinking on this reset either. And look how yummy my lunch looked:

Doesn’t that look delicious?

Has anyone else done the Ultimate Reset? Do you have any recipes that you used in place of the ones provided? How did it go?
