A REFLECTIVE JOURNEY Navigating Through the Layers of My Life A Journey Back to Childhood - If I could choose one place to revisit for the rest of my days, it would be my childhood—a time when I lived apart frommy parents and grappled with the complexities of life as a young child. This pivotal phase shaped my identity and instilled in me a deep sense of empathy and compassion for my younger self. Now, through introspection and self-care, I strive to be a friend to the lonely child I once was, offering comfort and understanding in retrospect. The Birthday Journal 7

1. Prepare Your Mind, Your Body, And Your Environment Good preparation for a Reset also means having all the items we need ready and at hand before Day 1 (Monday Morning). This includes your scale, your tape measure, your phone for taking your pics, water, and electrolyte ingredients. Preparation is key if you want good results in your Reset. The most important thing to prepare is your mind. Please ensure your scale has working batteries, functions properly, and is with you every morning this week. 2. Deal breakers WEIGH-INS and WAIST MEASUREMENTS are a must FIRST THING every morning. This is a very important request. Daily (before 11 am), without these, Coach won’t be able to measure your progress and adjust what we are doing to suit you. Kindly COMPLY, PLEASE, with daily reporting of your weight. 3. Hydration Dedicate your morning to hydration. Drink your water. Sip, sip, sip. Ensure you make electrolyte water and sip on it, especially when you feel low, unwell, weak, or faint. It will give you a little pick-meup. Try not to drink water after 7 PM so you can get a good night’s rest without waking up to go to the bathroom and disrupting your sleep. 4. Contraband Foods Don’t eat contraband foods and pretend you can’t remember consuming them. Those four pieces of nuts you ate don’t just evaporate into thin air. Your body has to process them, and it will recognize every carb and protein in there. 5. Oops, I Ate It Again Don’t fret over slip-ups. If you’ve veered off course, reset with a water fast the next day to kick start fat burning mode. Be honest about what you’ve consumed—every bite counts, especially if you’re battling hormonal challenges. Reset Rules: 10 Insider Tips for Success 32 The Birthday Journal

6. Hide and Your Room Escape the hunger pangs by retreating to your room. Engage in activities like working on the computer, reading a book, or playing music to distract yourself from food cravings. Alternatively, go for a leisurely walk. Even a short stroll surprisingly can give you a bit more energy if you are feeling a bit weak. 7. Soothing Slumber Secrets If you don’t sleep well, you can’t maintain your weight, let alone lose excess. No magic will make it happen unless you consistently sleep deeply and well—preferably at night in accordance with the natural circadian rhythm (which basically means sleeping early so you can wake up at the same time as the roosters’ crow in your village). Take refuge in the realm of dreams! If you happen to dream about food, indulge guilt-free—after all, dream food doesn’t count! Just make sure you don’t sleepwalk to the kitchen for real snacks. ️ 8. Strength in Numbers Embrace community support during your reset journey. Share your struggles and victories openly, as many others—including Coach Selasie herself—can relate. Reach out for assistance if needed, and commit to doing your best without hiding or shame. 9. Read all the Great Quotes “It’s not about being the best, it’s about being better than you were yesterday” - Roy Rogers. “Identifying the pattern is awareness, choosing not to repeat the cycle is growth” - Iambrillyant. “Don’t wish for it, work for it. 10. Celebrate your wins with before and after pictures They’re inspirational and can motivate you, even with just a 5-day comparison. Seeing the difference in your body through these pictures can spur you on to achieve more. Reward yourself when you reach a milestone. Treat yourself to something special, like a spa day, a new outfit, or a relaxing evening at home with your favourite movie. Remember, celebrating wins, no matter how small, is crucial for staying motivated, focused, and committed to your goals. So, don’t hesitate to celebrate every step of the way! 33 The Birthday Journal

May the Lord who has carried you over the years continue to uplift and honour you! “Thus says the Lord to His anointed, to Selasie, whose right hand I have held—to subdue nations before her and loose the armour of kings, to open before her the double doors, so that the gates will not be shut: ‘I will go before you and make the crooked places straight; I will break in pieces the gates of bronze and cut the bars of iron. I will give you the treasures of darkness and hidden riches of secret places, that you may know that I, the Lord, who call you by your name, am the God of Israel.” Isaiah45:1-3 The Birthday Journal 39
