RESTART Program Chronicles: Day 10

Today was a much, much better day than yesterday.  I slept quite well, took some time to write this morning, then went to yoga.  I checked a bunch of stuff off my to-do list.  I volunteered at our middle school.  I was motivated to make a good dinner which we all enjoyed.  It’s 7:00 pm and I’m writing again.  I’m tuning out of the news as much as possible.  I realized much of my poor mood yesterday can be attributed to my anger over the recent political climate.  I needed a break.

We’ve made it through day 10 and tomorrow is the midpoint.  Honestly, it hasn’t been very hard for me.  I do think about chocolate in the afternoons as it’s been my habit to enjoy a square of chocolate or a Trader Joe’s Honey Mint in the afternoons, but I’m not craving them.  If and when I do get a hankering for something sweet I’ve had a cup of licorice tea and that’s done the trick.

This morning I had scrambled eggs, salsa, avocado, and sauerkraut for breakfast.  Shocker!  Lunch was the leftover hash from Sunday.  Dinner was pistachio crusted salmon, Instant Pot artichokes w/ homemade mayo, and a simple tossed salad.  It really hit the spot.img_0300

I think I’ll top off the evening with a green-tipped banana sprinkled with cinnamon, toasted coconut, and coconut cream.  Yum!
