I woke up early today. I considered going back to sleep, but then I figured I could go grocery shopping before all the crazies were out, so I jumped out of bed, threw some clothes on, and headed out.
I was right; it was nice and quiet at the store. However, there was one thing I overlooked…I should have eaten before going. Everyone had coffee, the bakery was putting out muffins, and because I was shopping for things that I don’t normally buy, I had to wander around and pass every delicious looking thing in the store! I was able to restrain myself, but Lesson Learned!
Once I got home I ate oatmeal and fruit for breakfast. I used to DESPISE oatmeal, but I am doing better with it now. It’s still not my favorite, but it’s at least edible.
I did some work on Facebook and figured out what I need to prep for the week. The Ultimate Reset really makes you PLAN. I have planned out meals before and it is work, but somehow this is way more extensive then any meal planning I have done. Also, I feel like I have never done so many DISHES in my life! Thank God for a dishwasher, because there is no way I could have kept up. I have already done two loads since I started! Not all of the dishes are from cooking, actually the majority is from storage and transportation to and from work.
Here is a picture of my disaster of a kitchen after one day of meal prep:
I was (and am still) feeling tired, so I took a good nap and then ate lunch. It was leftover zucchini soup and a salad. I cheated a little bit to make the soup more palatable – I added Cholula. It definitely helped a lot!
I will be posting my Ultimate Reset - week one results tomorrow, so come back and check them out!
