Day 3 was uneventful.
Woke up, took my supplements. Keeping them by my beside table along with my distilled water is really convenient.
For the sake of time, I had a repeat breakfast from day 2 – Oatmeal and blueberries & organic yougurt with blueberries because it takes less time to prepare & eat than eggs, toast & spinach.
The period between breakfast and lunch is still the hardest. I typically eat at 8:00-ish, 10:30, 12:30, 3:30 and 6:00 and sometimes a late night snack. So going to eating a 7:30-8, 12:30, 3:30-4 and then 6:00 has been pretty rough. I guzzle a big glass of distilled water with lemon, but that doesn’t hold me off for long.
Lunch was Lentil Lime Salad & another Microgreen Salad. I remembered the pumpkin seeds this time! I never liked Lentils until I did Ultimate Reset for the 1st time last July! Now I love them! I will be eating the same thing as repeat lunch for day 4 as well.
1 cup cooked green lentils (see recipe on pg. 88)…
1 medium carrot, shredded
¼ cup finely chopped fresh cilantro
1½ tsp. sesame oil
2 Tbsp. fresh lime juice

Herbal seasoning blend (to taste; optional)
1.Combine lentils, carrot, cilantro, oil, lime juice, and Braggs Liquid Aminos, plus salt, cumin, and seasoning blend (if desired); toss gently to blend.

The Pond Water aka Alkanize never gets any tastier, but I know how good it is for me, so I drink it without much complaint.
Snack time was the same – whole wheat crackers, hard boiled egg covered in Crushed Red Pepper!
Last nights dinner was hard to make in 1 individual serving since the recipe only called for 1/2 a can of black beans (organic) – so instead of wasting the other 1/2 I made enough so I could have a repeat meal. It’s one of my favorites so I didn’t mind, especially since I am not too fond of Day 3’s Meal – Nori Roll with Tempeh & Veggies and Japanese Cucumber Salad because no matter how much I grow up SEAWEED & CUCUMBERS are just 2 things I just CANNOT do!
The evening was pretty calm, despite Ryan being outside the whole time constructing railings for Rebel’s “big boy bed” (and messing with his latest obssession: his chickens) that he’d been BEGGING to sleep in, but once the railings were installed, he asked to sleep in his old bed (crib). Go figure. And the fact that I had my weekly Team Coach Call at 8:30.
I was able to take a shower, get Rebel to bed at a decent hour, clean up the kitchen and get my breakfast and lunch packed with 40 minutes left to spare before the call.
I went to bed hungry though and was FREEZING. I couldn’t seem to warm up despite having socks on, the covers pulled up to my chin & cuddled up to Ryan.
This weeks call with my team was fantastic. I love seeing the growth & having so many participants listening in on the call. I shared with my team, the prerequisites to be included in my NEW Coach Training Boot Camp that starts on November 4, 2013. The FIRST Monday that I will be a FULL TIME Beachbody Coach.
If anyone is interested in becoming part of this exclusive training group. NOW is the time to get started to be included in this extensive training program that starts promptly on Nov. 4!
