Day 3: Best one yet!

Aspect of the Re-Boot I’m enjoying the most?  I really enjoy the sense of focus that the Re-Boot brings me. I’m focused not only on what I put in my mouth but my exercise, my sleep and general self-care with the body scrubbing and the Epsom salt baths.

Aspect of the Re-Boot I’m finding the most difficult?  I think the hardest part for me is waking up to the thought of warm lemon water instead of hot coffee with cream!

Quality of last night’s sleep?  My first night’s sleep on the Re-Boot was so short and not very satisfying. However, last night I slept well and woke up refreshed. I think it’s because I made a concerted effort to go to bed earlier and turn off the technology.

Energy level and mood during the day?  Today I felt energized and happy, until I took an Epsom salt bath in the late afternoon. All my energy was gone! Luckily, I was able to just lay down for a few minutes! From now on I will take my baths before bed.

Cravings? As always, I crave sugar! But I have learned from past Re-Boots to be prepared with things like the Peppermint Brownie Bites (from the recipes), dates and flavored dried plums to satisfy the sweet tooth.

Tips that help me: I make a batch of the Detox salad (it makes a ton so share half with a friend!) and Paleo Pumpkin Muffins to have on hand for quick breakfast, snack or lunch when I’m too busy to prepare a whole meal. Both are very satisfying! Being prepared keeps me on track.
