After lots of traveling and eating things you normally wouldn’t, sometimes, you just need a good cleanse. I know I did! I used the The Ultimate Reset to cleanse and I lost 11 pounds and 15.75 inches! I’ve not only reset my body and have more energy & mental clarity, I’ve also reset my taste buds and crave healthy and nourishing foods again—and that’s an awesome feeling.
Why I Did The Ultimate Reset: 21 days ago, my mom came to visit. Before she came, she told me that she wanted to do The Ultimate Reset while she was here. My original plan was to help & encourage her and continue doing my P90X3 workouts. But As I started going through the 21-day program materials and planning meals with her, I realized that I REALLY need a reset also. I was in desperate in need of an inner-body tune-up. This was a hard reality check for me because I tend to have the "I can out-exercise my bad diet" mentality. Not good! But this is a reality check that I needed. At that point, I completed my first week of P90X3 and I absolutely love it, but I realized that unless I COMPLETELY got my nutrition on track, my workouts (even the extreme ones) wouldn’t do much for me. Because my body was going to go through an internal workout, I decided not to do any strenuous workouts (no P90X3 for 3 weeks). Doing this in the middle of the time I’m supposed to be training for my competition was a bit nerve wracking, but I decided to trust the process. Besides, my overall health means way too much to me to put this on the backburner.
What is The Ultimate Reset? The Beachbody Ultimate Reset is a unique program that helps support digestive and overall health, energy and mood. It also helps active individuals get even more out of their workouts because it helps restore the body and makes it more efficient.
There are 3 phases to the program (each phase is 7 days):
Phase I. Reclaim. In Phase 1, you Reclaim your body, accessing its inner chemistry and preparing it for change. You’ll gradually remove foods such as red meat and dairy from your diet.
Phase II. Release. In Phase 2, you begin to Release unwanted compounds that have been holding your system back and start the detoxification process. This phase includes a gentle colon cleanse and digestive support. You'll now be eating a fully vegan diet.
Phase III. Restore. In Phase 3, you'll help Restore your digestive system along with other internal processes to maximum efficiency, putting nutrients, enzymes, and pre-and probiotics back into your body.
A lot of people wonder if they’ll get hungry on the program. No. You'll eat three healthy, tasty & satisfying meals every day. I found the meals provided me with plenty of food—sometimes it felt like too much. And just in case, you also get a list of tasty snacks you can eat while still maintaining your Reset.
Why do The Ultimate Reset? Even though the body is extremely resilient, our bodies have been pushed to the limit by pollution, pesticides, preservatives, and chemicals contained in nearly every item that makes up our modern world. These harmful items can disrupt the normal function of our bodies, which, in turn, can result in reduced energy, weight gain, and a weaker immune system.
Is the Ultimate Reset Right for You? Do you want to eat better, get more sleep, have more energy, lose weight, drink more water, create healthier habits, boost your mood, lower your cholesterol or blood pressure, detox/clean out your system, or establish a healthier relationship to food? If you answered "yes" to any of these, this program is right for YOU. The most important thing people need to realize about the Ultimate Reset is that it’s a total lifestyle change. But the thing is, in order for things to change in life, YOU need to change...The Ultimate Reset lays out all of the necessary steps you need to take in order to change!

This program helped me to maximize the energy production within my cells, and improving my body's ability to process fuel from nutrients and micronutrients! I have more energy & more mental clarity. I lost 11 pounds and 15.75 inches. I knew the results of this program would stick when I hit Phase 3 and thought about all of the meals from the previous 2 weeks I was going to eat at the end—like zucchini soup, pinto beans & rice, and fresh fruit topped with shredded coconut!
A few weeks ago, I shared that I set a big goal for myself on Facebook, but it was hidden away. Unless you read the comments when a friend asked me to clearly state the goal, you would've missed what it was. Until almost 20 days ago I had only shared this goal with family and a couple of friends. But, I finally shared it point blank & publicly with all of my Facebook friends & followers. I'll be participating in the Beacbody Classic. There. I said it. The bandaid has been ripped off :).
I'm far from being in "the best shape of my life" and I realize that this transformation is going to take time, commitment, and focus...and a lot of other things. For me, this goal is about achieving something I never thought I could do--until now. It's about breaking down a mental barrier that I've had up for years and years. It's about getting WAY outside of my comfort zone and seeing what will happen when I do. The magic always happens when I'm OUT of my comfort zone.
While I'm not one to back down on a challenge, I'm not always comfortable SHARING my journey along the way. I've been asked by a few people to share my journey during this transformation. Believe it or not, sharing will actually be the biggest step out of my comfort zone. But I realize sharing my successes and setbacks will not only keep me on track toward reaching this goal, but it will help me encourage others.
I'm committed stay true to my nutritarian/plant-based lifestyle (a way of eating that has exponentially transformed my health for the better) and Scott & I will be traveling to Europe in the middle of my training (an extra challenge for Kirsten Harr- The Fit Traveler ;) ). This should be fun :) :). 121 days---here we go!
I'm Kirsten and I LOVE to travel and I LOVE fitness. But I know what it's like to let the excitement of travel throw my off of my health & fitness goals. I'm here to provide tips on how to stay healthy & fit when you travel!
