Ultimate Reset Day 4, 5 and 6

This was the first weekend of the reset and I really didn't think I was going to make it on Sunday.  We had overnight visitors on Saturday night who didn't arrive until 2:30 in the morning.  We had to get up early for Mass the next morning, so I really thought I was going to cave to coffee.  Ooh. You didn't know there's no coffee allowed during the reset? Yep, that's right. No coffee.  Fortunately, I was able to catch a solid nap in the afternoon or I don't know what I would have done.  Dinner Sunday night included miso soup, which I HATE.  I'm told that I should've bought the yellow miso instead of brown.  I had leftovers from a dinner earlier in the week, so I switched it out.

Sunday was also our family's traditional "Ice Cream Sunday" in which we partake of homemade ice cream.  I really love ice cream and have serious doubts about my ability to resist, so I made all the ice cream that we'll need 3 weeks ago. I asked my husband to serve the ice cream so I wouldn't be tempted to cheat. However, I still had to be present while my family raved about how good chocolate marshmallow ice cream is.  Surprisingly, I didn't suffer too much.  I didn't feel any cravings or desires to have a taste.  If you know me, you are stunned.  Ice cream is my kryptonite. 

Last night I slept really well and did not have any crazy dream for the first time in a week.  I fell asleep easily and woke up earlier than expected, but feeling well rested.
***TMI ALERT*** 
Skip to the next paragraph if you are afraid.
 I haven't had any odd syptoms, no emotional reactions, no aches or pains to get excited about, but what I have noticed is more complete and slightly more frequent bowel movements over the last few days.  Nothing like you might expect with a cleanse, no running to the bathroom or anything unpleasant.  I think it's just a release of toxins from my body. I'm happy about it.


Tomorrow is my last day of week 1: Reclaim.  I begin week 2: Release on Wednesday.  I'll be eliminating all animal products during this week and eat a more vegetable, fruit, whole grain based diet.  All-in-all, this has been a successful week. I am looking forward to what's next.
