Ultimate Reset by Beachbody Day 18 Report

Ultimate Reset  – John gives us his Day 18 Report.

I can’t believe how good I feel and how much weight I have lost on the Ultimate Reset!

Ultimate Reset End of Week 2 Report

2 Weeks Down and 1 to go on the Ultimate Reset

As I write this, I am about to mark off Day 14 on the Ultimate Reset program by Beachbody.  Its been only two weeks but, I feel better, I sleep better, my mood is better and I am so impressed with the way I feel after only 14 days.  I have lost another 5.5 pounds this week and have my final weigh in tomorrow morning to cap off day 14 on the Ultimate Reset.  I am guessing I will end up with a total weight loss for week 2 of about 6-7 pounds which will make for 15 pounds total thus far.

Now to throw a monkey wrench into my program, we took a trip to California to visit my kids and celebrate a belated birthday for my mom.  One of the interesting things is the will power I possess having gone through this process.  I have always had good will power, if I want to stop something or cut it out, I just decide to do it and it is done.  But this was put to the test as we went for a family activity on Saturday and prior to our movie and fun at Dave and Busters, the kids all wanted Buffalo Wild Wings.  Now, if you know me, I love spicy food and hot wings and a beer have always been a favorite.  So we go into the restaurant, get seated and order.  Both boys order honey BBQ wings, the girls order mini corn dogs, Michele gets a sampler platter and I ordered …………. a house salad with Vinaigrette dressing and a water.  What was so funny was the waiter seriously did a double take and looked at me and said… um… anything else??? I smiled and said nope.  It felt really good to be able to enjoy my lunch as my family enjoyed their lunch.  See to me it is all a state of mind.  I am not missing anything by not eating that food.  I am very much enjoying my journey that I set upon two weeks ago with the Ultimate Reset and I am nearing my completion of the program.  So I am not going to allow anything to stand in my way to finish what I started.  So while some may think oh he’s missing out, I see it as oh I am doing exactly what I want, when I want.  I did the same thing when the family had cake and ice cream for my moms birthday.  As everyone else had their fill of cake and ice cream, Michele and I enjoyed delicious strawberries and blueberries.  So, not even a trip to California and being around all these tempting foods could get me to veer off my intended path which is to complete this Ultimate Reset progam and feel the immense satisfaction on my achievement.

Because in the end my friends, I didn’t just make a goal for 21 days to work towards a better me.  My goal was to work towards this for the rest of my life.  And this lifelong journey will be much easier because I started with the Ultimate Reset Program.  Because this is teaching me that I can live on only water as a beverage for 21 days and be completely satisfied, that I can eat super healthy foods and feel totally satisfied and that my will power is strong and will always be strong.

So, if you don’t mind… I am thirsty and going to get a glass of water right now.  Week 2 done!  Week 3, my final week starts TOMORROW!!

Have a great night!



Phase 2 Ultimate Reset – Release Phase Vegan Eating and Detox

Ultimate Reset week 1 complete, lost 8 pounds, week two off and running.

So week two on the Ultimate Reset is all about release. I have eliminated animal products including dairy, eggs and meat and have moved into vegetables, fruit and whole grains.  I have added an additional supplement to my intake called detox.  It is a powder I mix with distilled water and take along with my other items from Week 1. The schedule for week two is exactly the same, I have just added the detox and changed menu items for my meals.  REALLY SIMPLE!!

I feel great, have lots of energy and my skin has come back to life. I am very pleased with my results thus far and I am not even half way through the Ultimate Reset program.

If I can do it you can do it, do something for yourself, for your body, for your outlook on your future.  Ultimate Reset is just what I needed to get me off and running on my new path towards my fitness and wellness goals.

Thank you Beachbody and Thank you Ultimate Reset.  Check out my Ultimate Reset website

Day 5 Beachbody Ultimate Reset Program

And the hits keep coming on the Beachbody Ultimate Reset Program.

So it is the end of Day 5 on the Ultimate Reset.

Another great day.  I feel happy, now if you know me, this is not unusual, but there is added happy to the existing happy.  Maybe it is because I can see and feel results so quickly (like day 1) or because my body is feeling so good, or all of the above but by attitude is VERY good and I just feel great.  I have had only water for 5 straight days and my skin looks really good and my whole feeling of wellness is very high.  I have zero hunger cravings and I am enjoying the routine that the Beachbody Ultimate Reset has provided for me to follow.  I also added my 30 minutes of Yoga into my daily routine and this is proving to be very helpful to me and because it is a fat burning yoga program, I believe it is really enhancing my results.

As for my current weight loss, well I am not going to say until I am finished with the whole program how much I have lost… but I will say that I have lost more weight than the amount of days I have been on the Ultimate Reset Program (You can figure it out from there).  This is mind blowing to me.  But I was expecting very good things and good things are coming to me and I am so grateful.

So I have completed Day 5 on the Ultimate Reset and I have to give it two big thumbs UP!




Beachbody Ultimate Reset Review – Day 4

Wow, what a great day on the Ultimate Reset program!

I have to say that with each day I can feel my body changing for the better.  I have already lost a lot of weight and i am only beginning day 5 of the Ultimate Reset.  My mood is very positive, and I was saying all day I feel like I am on some sort of natural high.   My energy level is very high as well.  I didn’t think the transition would be so rapid but it is and I am not complaining.

On the Ultimate Reset so far (Only speaking for myself) I have had no food cravings.  I have VERY MUCH enjoyed my meals while it is called a diet, detox and cleanse program, I am loving the food.  I am also loving the knowledge I am gaining on preparing my food.  Using new ingredients and portion sizes will serve me long after I finish the program.  Michele is eating most of the meals with me when her schedule permits and  she is loving the food on the program as well.

The Beachbody Ultimate Reset is something I would recommend to everyone.

OK, Day 4 of the Ultimate Reset DONE!!

Looking forward to Day 5
