Day 2 - First Workout During Ultimate Reset


  • Breakfast: Greek Yogurt + Fruits
  • On The Go Lunch: Green Yogurt Juice
  • Lunch: Veggie Soup
  • Snack: 1 Asian Fragrant Pear
  • Pre Workout Snack: Sweet Potato
  • Workout: Turbo Kick (1 hour)
  • Dinner: Sweet Potato + Shitake Mushroom Chicken Quinoa & Brussel Sprouts



I found myself going a to the bathroom a lot to pee throughout the day. That would be troublesome if I were on a trip or out running errand. As for working out, energy level was even. I didn't have any problem at all. My weight went down 1 lbs and body fat down 0.6%

Starting the day ...

After gulping the Mineralize water and Optimize (supplements), my morning starts with Greek yogurt with fruits and some almond slices, while Andy enjoying scramble egg and toast. Not that he is a fussy eater, but after last night hit with Shitake Mushroom Quinoa, I think he starts seeing this diet thing differently.

I was about to steal a bit from his plate... but he finished it so quick!!

Close to lunch time, I had to go run errand. So I made a green juice and carried it with me in a shaker bottle. That hold down my hunger until I got home and had the real lunch. 

1/4 cucumber, 1 kiwi, 1/2 cup broccoli, 1/4 apple, 1 tbs Greek yogurt, cinnamon, water and ice

Back home. Popped in 2 more Optimize with Mineralize water and prep my lunch, the veggie soup leftover from yesterday. Added in a few chunks of chicken in there and lunch was served.

Veggie soup is best to clean up your fridge.
Seasoned with salt, pepper and nutmeg.

Snack time. Chugged the green stuff (Alkalinize) with Mineralize water, sipping the leftover green juice throughout the afternoon, and I ate a small fragrant pear - this type of Asian pear is not as dense as bartlett, it is more fibrous and juicy. 

Now the first workout during the Reset, Tuesday night Turbo Kickboxing with Scott, which is notoriously fast and furious. I'm usually spent after that. My strategy was to do it low impact and focus on my form and breathing. Typically I burn 500 calories within the hour in his class. So, just to be safe, make sure I didn't burn myself out, I added extra snack/calories for the workout.

Pre Workout Snack: sweet potato, cinnamon, grated coconut, almond slices.

I was not lightheaded or tired, but at the same time I was afraid of going all out. I know my body didn't get as much calories as it is used to for an intense workout. Even so, with low impact and less jumps I was sweating a lot and got a good workout. I drank water, not the Recovery Formula.   

Home again. Starving! Took a big bite of a sweet potato, drank the Mineralize water, Optimize and Soothe, then quickly cooked the brussel sprouts while chopping the onions, mushrooms and chicken, sauted them, tossed in cilantro and mix them all with the leftover quinoa from last night. Dinner was served. Bliss.
