Reboot Entry Day 11 (long, sorry)

Wednesday, November 09, 2011

Today has been a good day. Of course, it's early still so anything can (and likely WILL) happen. But for now, so far, it's been good.

Last night's dinner at the Mongolian grill was very good. I enjoyed it very much - there was no prep work, no cooking, and no clean-up. How can you not love that? I went heavy on the broccoli and mushrooms, added a few sprouts which are technically not on the approved food list for the Reboot if they were bean sprouts, avoided the noodles and the tofu, and was full but not stuffed, happily satisfied with my vegetarian meal last night.

After dinner, we swung by Marshalls. The office where I work has an odd heating/cooling system. When I was sitting by the windows, I was perpetually cold. I've moved across the aisle now, out from under a suspect vent, and yet I'm still cold. Not as bad as I was, but still. So, my mission last night was to purchase a sweater that I could leave at the office. I have a sweatshirt here now, but it's more sloppy comfy than it is office appropriate, so I opted to upgrade. I found two sweaters I liked and decided to treat myself to both of them. This is a good thing!

Weight:
Saturday - 221.4
Sunday - 220.2
Monday - 220.4
Tuesday - 220.8
Wednesday - 220.4

Blah blah, whatever. Moving on.

Gaye, you're completely right (and you're completely awesome, thank you SO MUCH for the kind compliment/observation!), I've been fortunate to lose what I have so far - this reboot isn't designed as a weight-loss method, but as a means of getting your body back into balance and perhaps changing up your entire nutritional lifestyle. Would I like to see the numbers go down even more before I'm done? Heck yea. Will I live if they don't? Probably LOL So yea, whatever. It's all good, because I have been successful! I've stuck with a plan that is not typical for me at all, and I've done very well with it.

I haven't talked a lot about the Reboot in specific detail much. I cut back even more when I read BethHoney was concerned I was trying a fad diet and compared me to a friend of hers who got sick doing something similar. I don't do fads, and I'm not endangering my health or well-being. I've become educated about my nutrition thanks to Spark, but there's always room to learn more.

www.fatsickandnearlydead.com

Let me explain a bit. I watched a movie called 'Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead' on Netflix. I watched it because our friends TurtleRaskin and Lisa01605 mentioned it in their blog, and Lisa talked about doing a Reboot. I was curious, so I found the movie and watched it. If you haven't seen it yet, I do recommend it!

So I watched the movie and was intrigued by it. The thought of juicing sounded interesting, but I was still training for my Half and I couldn't deviate from that plan. Once the Half was done, though, I took a weekend to visit my sister, and then came home to a week's prep work to begin the reboot.

www.jointhereboot.com

From the site itself:
"How do I promote weight loss during the Reboot?
The primary goal of the Reboot is to begin a journey of health and wellness for a lasting lifestyle change. Weight loss is typically a side effect of a Reboot, which for some individuals is great news. For many, weight loss may be a key reason you would like to try a Reboot, as a jump start to a long term weight loss plan. For others, weight loss is just a temporary by-product of the Reboot and not a primary goal."

and:
"You will most likely lose weight during the 15-day Reboot. This is mainly due to the fact that you are ingesting fewer calories than usual as well as using body stores of protein and fats to keep your brain and normal bodily functions working during the juice fast. It is very natural for a little weight to come back on after the Reboot period, even with a healthy, micronutrient rich diet. But try not to be discouraged. By following a well designed, calorie controlled micronutrient rich eating plan, your healthy weight loss can continue after your Reboot."

The plan I'm following is a 15-day Entry program. It's solids and juices, and vegan if you don't use honey to sweeten your allotted tea each day (thanks Turtle!). You can read more about the programs and how it works by checking out the FAQs.

This is all to say that this isn't necessarily a fad diet. It's not saying that this is the only way you should eat, ever. It's a way to clean out your .. my system. Before I started, I was having quite a few digestive issues. My skin was suffering as well, breakouts occurring like I was 16 or something. That was due to the way I was eating, all of it. Yes, I had the Spark plan to follow, but I didn't. I printed it out, I planned on it, I shopped for it, then I ignored it after 5 p.m. Popcorn with butter, anyone? That was me, lots of butter. Lots of nut butter, too much, so much so that the fat I was ingesting was making itself known on my face. Seriously, want to know how I'm doing with my nutrition? Look at my face. Right now, it's cleared up nicely. I just knocked wood (particle board?) in hopes of it staying that way.

Paraselenic asked a few questions..
have you noticed a change in your body/energy level/ mood etc. on this plan? How closely are you following the 15 day meal plan?
Have you been craving anything that surprised you?

The nearly two weeks I've been on this plan have been some of the hardest this year. Not because I'm on this plan - it has absolutely nothing to do with this plan. It has to do with high stress situations going on personally that otherwise would have driven me into a bag or 12 of potato chips or a dozen or 3 giant chocolate chip cookies, sticks of butter, tubs of chip dip and ice cream and who knows what else. This plan has given me an anchor to hold fast to. I was determined to Stick To It! I was going to do this if it choked me. Grrrr!

The first two days were rough, emotionally more-so than physically. I got through it though. The next few days, my energy came up. I felt good, I felt zippy. Aside from the 4 lb TOM water-weight drop, my body started releasing lbs again slowly. I learned to adjust to feeling a bit more tired. I believe the Reboot has helped me manage my way through the upset better than I would have without it, perhaps helping me avoid a full-blown bout of depression.

Even though my fiber intake has increased quite a bit with the Reboot, my system has slowed down from its normal processes - ahem. The Reboot site offers suggestions if your system slows down or processes too quickly. That's something to keep in mind as you go through this.

I've followed the plan 90-95%. There were times when it called for a specific snack, but instead I put together a similar but different dish. Or I was supposed to have a soup with lunch, but instead saved it for later. Things like that. I haven't eaten any foods off-plan (except those sprouts I mentioned earlier). No grains, no meats, no dairy. Avocados have become my creamy friends in my salads. Oh, and no coffee. Beware the possible headaches when you kick the caffeine.

The only cravings I've had have been fleeting. One day I "smelled" McDonald's hamburger buns. I don't know why, I've had McD's maybe once in the last 2-3 years. It's not a regular staple of my diet. Someone brought giant bagels into work one day and sent out an email that they were available at the coffee station. I wanted one, or maybe just a quarter of one, at that time, but the want passed because I knew it was psychological and not biological.

My gut is better. My energy levels fluctuated all over the place. I ditched the gym for ST and Zumba this week. It's not because of the Reboot, but because of my own emotional rollercoaster. I think I'm finding my way through the upheaval, which accounts for today being a good day.

Saturday will be my last Reboot day. The site suggests a reboot every quarter. I'm sure I'll revisit it again, now that I'm familiar with the process, and the progress. I am looking forward to having a cuppa coffee on Sunday. I'll likely go back to having morning coffees, but perhaps not quite as sweet. I've considered sticking to a mostly vegetarian plan provided by Spark, and supplementing it with chicken and fish now and again. I haven't finalized that part of it yet. We'll see where I end up.

For now, though, I do recommend the Reboot Entry 15-day plan if you're looking to shake things up nutritionally and want to try something new and/or different. Let me know what other questions you have that I haven't answered and I'll be happy to cover them.

    I added 'Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead' to Netflix. I'm going to watch it soon. Won't have time this weekend but I'll see what I can do.

I'm proud of you looking at things and evaluating them as they fit into your life and your needs. I'm glad you took time to write this. It gave me things to think about.

Hope the upheaval turns into a victory for you and that things become calmer and happier soon.

    I certainly think this was a great refreshment for your body! Like you said it's a detox for health, not a diet! I think you proved that it does flush out your body and allows your body to soak up all the goodness! Kudos to you for sticking through it! I think I'd have a hard time with it.... I'd certainly need to get used to the taste of the juices (not a huge fan of green juices) but it's something I'd like to consider!
Good for you Candy....

    I've been very curious about this and your blog was very informative. And interesting what Turtle posted about protein...that was one area that I wondered about but haven't checked.

I especially LOVE that the "plan has given me an anchor to hold fast to" and "perhaps helping me avoid a full-blown bout of depression." That's awesome and I hope that your system is sufficiently rebooted to keep things under control when things get tough. And your tummy is feeling better too...that makes it worth a lot. Good luck with the next phase of your eat-plan and the reintroduction of coffee and whatever else.

    Thank you so much for responding to my questions!

My husband and I watched fat, sick, and nearly dead which sparked our interest in this reboot as well. Your feedback is very useful in planning the timing of when we decide to start-- if the first two days are the worst, then we'll probably start on a saturday, to allow the worst parts to happen at home exclusively.

I'm glad to hear that your energy levels are doing okay and I find the mcD's craving pretty funny.

I was on a "cleanse" a couple years back that had a very limited food intake, too-- NO grains, soy, dairy, meat, eggs, or tomatoes, corn, or pineapple-- and I would wake up from a dead sleep CRAVING wheat toast and corn on the cob-- like itchy arms heroin addict craving-- so I'm betting I'll go through a similar bit on this, too.

Again, thank you for blogging your experiences-- it's very helpful.

    I am so glad you have had such a good experience with the reboot!. If you have the time I highly recommend reading Eat To Live by Joel Furhman. It has really changed my life... at least so far, it's only been a couple of months. His eating plan is similar to the reboot. It is vegan (mostly) with beans, nuts, and seeds added in. After a 6 week strict period he allows for up to 12 oz of meat a week, preferably chicken or fish. I just feel so good and have so much energy. The pounds are dropping off too. The best part is I am never hungry. Veggies, fruits, and beans are unlimited. You can't eat too many greens! More and more I am reading that a plant based diet is best for health and weight loss. Not necessarily exclusively, but the more the better.

TURTLERASKIN 11/9/2011 1:51PM

    This does sound great! In doing my research, I was intrigued to find out how little protein we actually need (0.5g per kg of body weight), AND that we get 1/6 of our protein from our stomach lining, so if you're low in a day, no worries. I had worried about doing something like a reboot because I usually am quite low in protein (above the recommended level, but low by spark standards) and I thought it would be lower. But it sounds like it's pretty good, actually -- and yummy too!

As for the waste treatment facility, I so hear you. When I have a weekend away where I don't control my food, the facility seems to mostly shut down. It picks back up for a day when I eat well again, then shuts down for a couple more days before getting back to normal. Our bodies are weird, man.

Reboot Entry day 10

Tuesday, November 08, 2011

Day 10. Nearly at the end of the Reboot. I'm still eating to plan, although I am planning on going off plan this evening. Instead of staying and cooking, we'll be going to Chang's Mongolian Grill. It's one of my favorite places, and it really lends itself to the Reboot.

For those of you not familiar with a mongolian grill - picture a salad bar, stocked with a variety of meats - beef, lamb, shrimp, chicken, salmon - slightly frozen and sliced very thin. You can also select noodles - spaghetti shaped noodles. The next section is all fresh veggies - broccoli, mushrooms, tomatos, carrots, spinach, peppers, onions, even tofu. The last section is a series of liquids - hot oil, sesame oil, ginger/water, garlic/water, oyster sauce, soy sauce, sugar water.

Now, you take a bowl (or two) and start at one end of the bar and work your way down, adding whatever ingredients you want. I used to get the beef, or the chicken, but now I bypass the meat altogether. I used to get the noodles, but again, I'm skipping it. At the veggie section, I load up with all the good stuff. Finally, you top it with whatever liquids you want to cook your goods in. I like the hot oil, garlic/water, and soy sauce.

Take your bowl[s] up the counter and wait patiently. Very skilled men will take your bowls and slap the contents down on this huge, very hot grill. Your nummy food will be grilled and cooked and flavored to your particular liking. When it's done, they scoop it off the grill onto a plate and hand it to you. I personally must add some sesame seeds to the resulting dish before happily returning to my table.

THAT is what I'm having for dinner tonight. I'll count every morsel, and enjoy every bite, the scale be damned.

Weight:
Saturday - 221.4
Sunday - 220.2
Monday - 220.4
Tuesday - 220.8

I sighed and laughed at the scale this morning. Fine. Whatever. My systems aren't processing exactly as they should be right now (ahem.. for the love of Pete!) so I'm not sweatin' it too much. I'd prefer to see the scale move a bit more before the end of the 15 days, but if it doesn't, that's fine. I've released a good amount, and will have to see how my body reacts once the Reboot is done and I figure out a different nutritional plan. That'll be interesting!

    Well done for sticking with the meal plan, it doesn't sound an easy plan to stick to...a good detox though.
I hope you enjoy your Mongolian barbeque, that was one of my favourite places to eat out before I became vegetarian.

I adore how you use the word 'release'. I use it as well as I feel it is absolutely appropriate. Here's to letting go of more and more. Hope you felt the reboot did the trick and rebooted your energy and even motivation for more than just releasing pounds.

BTW (and for those who have never met Candy) if someone asked me how much you weigh, I might have guessed at the 180+ number so the scale doesn't tell all!

Reboot Entry day 9

Monday, November 07, 2011

Here it is Monday already.

Weight:
Saturday - 221.4
Sunday - 220.2
Monday - 220.4

Do you love your bed? I absolutely love my bed right now. It's a queen size sleigh bed, which means it stands very tall, and has a tall headboard and footboard. More importantly than that, though, is what's on it right now. I have this really nice set of sheets on it. They're like an ice-blue, or very light turquoise-y color. For whatever reason, I find that color very soothing and inviting. Maybe like slipping into the turquoise-y blue sea on some tropical isle. On top of the sheets I have this really nice fluffy comforter. It's not the prettiest thing ever - it's not floral or colorful, just a subtle beige. I have a nice fluffy, but not too fluffy, pillow. When I crawl into bed at night, it's like the most comfortable restful place. I just sink into the softness, the comfort, and since it's getting cooler at night, the warmth slowly invades and spreads. It's not a sudden jolt of warmth, but a nice easing into.

It's good to love your bed, to find it peaceful and restful. A place of refuge when you've come to the end of a long day. Just make sure you don't love it so much that you prefer not to leave it when the morning comes.

    I think I know exactly how you feel about "Loving" your bed! I do too! I always think of my grandmother and the sleepovers that I would have at her house. As a kid I used to love the guest bed at their house. She had a way of making the bed so perfect and tight that when I would crawl in it was just so perfectly cozy. And the smell of the fresh sheets was so peaceful. I actually have a queen size deep foam mattress and although it is old and getting worn..... I "LOVE" my bed!

    Many years ago when we stayed at a B&B-type inn, we slept in THE most comfortable bed ever. After that, I realized that we needed to make sure our bed at home was that comfortable. Right now our guest room has the most comfortable set-up...but we wouldn't have known that if it wasn't for the barking neighbor dogs driving us downstairs for a little quieter sleep. LOL!

I'm glad you have a great bed. There's nothing like ending the day in a cozy and comfortable place.

    My bed used to be too soft when I was about fifty pounds heavier; now, however, it's just about the right firmness! And I hear you on the blues and turquioses. For me, it's green; I have the walls of my bedroom painted a pale mint green; when sun shines on them (and particularly when the sun reflects off the pool onto my walls in that dappled, wavy pattern), it makes me feel so peaceful. Yay for respite!

    My bed is not as restful as it use to be. Literally and figuratively. My bedroom is lighthouses and my bed is covered w/a puppy blanket that I remove at night when I sleep. It's not pretty at all. I do have nice sheets so that's a plus.

I keep thinking I want to invest in some comfortable mattress/box spring set but I have to save up to buy some good ones. These I bought a few years ago have not held up. Ugh.

Did you run over the weekend? We walked some w/the pups. Poor Toby is limping again. Ugh.

Reboot Entry days 7 and 8

Sunday, November 06, 2011

A little bit of catch-up.

Weight:
Saturday - 221.4
Sunday - 220.2

I finished out Friday relatively well. Eating was on track, sticking to plan. I continued feeling achy, and that carried on through Saturday as well. It was enough that I finally broke down and took some acetaminophen last night before going to bed.

The meals are still tasty - 90% at least. I've found only a few things that haven't appealed, and have found a way to work around that.

In case anyone is thinking 'well of course she's losing lbs, she's only eating veggies' let me assure you, I'm not starving and I'm eating well.



Yes, my numbers are skewed, heavy on the carb side, and weak on protein. That'll balance out soon. I do wonder what will happen with my weight once I add back in proteins. I think I'm quite content to avoid grains for the most part. I do hope this release will be sustained once I'm done with the reboot and gradually add different things back in. Namely chicken. Oh, and cottage cheese. Those are the biggies. And maybe home made nut butter.

This isn't to say that I haven't considered deviating from the plan. Yesterday, after grocery shopping, I thought about swinging through Arby's and getting a Jamocha shake. One of my favorites that I have very rarely. It seemed like a good idea - a small reward for completing a whole week on the reboot. But.. wouldn't that reward defeat the whole purpose and point of the reboot? Geez! I passed.

No walk yesterday. I was just too cold, too tired, and too achy. Today I feel a bit better, so we're heading out to a holiday expo at the convention center later today.

Hope you all remembered to turn your clocks back an hour. Enjoy that extra sleep if you can!

    I'm not into fad diets that say not to eat protein. It helps repair your body's cells, which is especially useful when you're sick. So if you're going to deviate from their plan, have a little healthy protein. How long does this phase last? I'm not really sure what you're doing, but this sounds like something one of my other friends tried out. She got really sick, and had to stop. Anyway, good luck with everything!

Reboot Entry day 6

Friday, November 04, 2011

I suppose it was a combination of things adding up. I got home last night and even though I was very tired, I changed into my running gear and headed out. I was planning on 3 miles, but ended up only running 2, and then walking another .6 to get home. My legs were just so tired, and I was cold and achy. Flu-like, yea? I suppose the week was catching up with me altogether.

Weight:
Saturday - 228.8
Sunday - 224.8
Monday - 223.0
Tuesday - 222.6
Wednesday - 222.8
Thursday - 221.4
Friday - 220.2

That's an all-time low for the last 23 years. We're in unchartered territory here kids.

Today's my off Friday, so we took the girls to the groomers early to get their feet and faces done. While at Cascade Station, we walked the loop around the shopping center. It ended up being 2.3 miles. Good. I've walked ~2 miles each day since Monday, and hope to continue over the weekend. We'll see how the weather holds out.

I'm still achy today. I don't have a lot on the schedule for the day, so I'll take it easy and see if this is just DOMS or detox or what.

Sorry to hear that you weren't feeling optimal yesterday. I know the feeling of being exhausted and pushing yourself to get out there and get moving anyway. Hopefully you've managed to kick whatever it was to the curb today.

    Congrats on doing so well -- hopefully the draggy feeling will go away soon. They say the detox is a week or so, so hopefully it'll be done this weekend. Way to go!

    wow, you are just dropping that weight. you've got me seriously considering doing this in decemeber. i'd love to have some weight wash off of me. you and i both would be faster runners for losing those pounds!

i made more kale chips today, too. not sure if the expected frost is going to kill my kale, so i figured i'd go for it and have some more. definitely gets to the happy potato chips munchiness.

and uncharted waters.... might get a little scary there, but thankfully you're a tough woman able to handle being out of her comfort zone!

    Wow. You're melting. I'm proud of you for doing that walking and for listening to your body last night and not over doing it.

I hope the girls look beautiful after the spa day. Toby and Maureen get theirs tomorrow, but don't tell them that. They hate bath day. LOL

    Congrats on being in uncharted territory!! I hope you feel better tomorrow. I've had a few detox days that left me feeling not so great. Mostly bad headaches or stomach discomfort. All part of getting the bad stuff out I guess.
