Breakfast

Breakfast

Aspect of the Re-Boot I’m enjoying the most? I love all the new recipes and feeling good about everything I eat.

Aspect of the Re-Boot I’m finding the most difficult?  I’d have to say the most difficult thing so far is not being able to just grab something and go. I’m having to get used to fixing meals rather than rushing out the door with a Kind Bar.

Quality of previous night’s sleep?  I slept great last night and actually do feel refreshed!

Cravings: Well, I always crave Chick-Fil-A, so those haven’t stopped quite yet. Of course, walking on campus where every other person has Chick-Fil-A bags in their hands doesn’t help, but I just take a gulp of our cranberry cocktail and move on. I’ve been surprised with my lack of cravings late at night which I used to have frequently, especially staying up late to study — but I haven’t had any the past couple nights!

Energy level throughout the day? My energy today (Tuesday) has been much better all day, where yesterday by 5:00 I was exhausted.

Smoothie snack

Mood? I’ve been in a great mood, but I think that is mostly because I’m excited for the rest of the reboot! I haven’t noticed any mood swings.

bath time!

bath time!

Any other observations? The body scrubbing was a little painful, but I’m sure my body will get used to that! Finding 30 minutes for an Epsom salt bath is definitely a struggle, but I did get to have one today and of course added lots of bubbles — yay!

unnamed-82unnamed-81Tips/Tricks: I tried my Apple Cider Vinegar in my lemon water today and that was much easier for me to drink.  For the cranberry cocktail, I put half in my 32 oz. Nalgene water bottle and try to finish it before lunch (and drink it during lunch) and then refill it to drink the other 32 oz. in the afternoon/evening.

Meals:

  • I made the avocado and egg bowl for breakfast this morning for my roommate and myself. it wasn’t as pretty as planned, but it tasted delicious! I couldn’t bare to throw away the extra avocado so I put that and an egg in a muffin tin!
  • For lunch I had baked chicken, brown rice and strawberries.
  • For dinner I had the Thai beef stew from our cookbook, YUM!
  • And for snacks I had almonds, as well as a berry, almond milk and spinach smoothie!

I’m going to get the ingredients for stuffed sweet potatoes tomorrow, can’t wait to try them!
