Over the next 21 days, we will be following Andrea’s journey using the NEW Beachbody Ultimate Reset. Andrea is the owner of Sangha Yoga, and is no stranger to the idea of a 21 day detox. To learn more about Sangha Yoga, please visit their site, or their Facebook page.
You can research more information about the Ultimate Reset, on my official Ultimate Reset site.
Spring is the time when some of us feel the need to clean, change, get out and move. Maybe it’s the dreaded “swim suit season” that will be here before we know it, or maybe it’s the act of shaking off those winter cobwebs that has us eager to get something done?
As a yoga instructor, I always advise my students to create a renewal with every practice. Staying in the present moment and working on the body and mind each time we hit the mat, but even I find that Spring gives me the urge to clean out and get going!
Nature has it’s Spring regime. Creatures get frisky as they awaken from a long winter. Plants sprout from the thawing ground and make preparations to unfurl their flowers. Maybe it’s our instinctive nature to feel the need to renew in Spring?
Last Spring I made my renewal by doing a three week cleanse. It was a whole food and supplement supported journey that tested my will power and taught me self-awareness. At the end of the 21 days I lost weight, gained flexibility, increased energy, and had decreased allergic response. I felt wonderful!
It was the effects of this cleanse that are now leading me to do it again. Beachbody has created the Ultimate Reset. This is also a 21 day, whole food and supplement supported cleanse. After reading the details, it seemed the right thing for me.
The box of supplies arrived today and I am so excited to start, but I also not looking forward to the lack of coffee and chocolate! I looked through the guidebook, with pictures of beautiful and delicious looking foods, decided it might not be so bad. It looks like larger meals than I eat now. It also includes meal planner that sets up the schedule for you so it couldn’t be much easier. I printed out a copy of the shopping list and will be hitting the stores tomorrow for the tasty ingredients.
So, on day -1 (negative 1!) I am anxious. I still had coffee this morning and a few M&M’s this afternoon – no sacrifices so far. I may be playing a different tune in a few days, so stay tuned. I will walk you through the good and bad and I will tell it like it is.
Wish me luck!
