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