I made it to bed at 11PM last night and, although I thought I was tired, didn’t fall asleep as fast as I thought I would. Â Oh well.
Every Thursday for the past five years I’ve met with a small group of men. Â It’s an early day as we meet at 6:45AM and I’m 20 minutes away. Â So when the alarm goes off at 5:30… I realize I should have been in bed sooner.
This also means that I don’t get much of anything to eat before leaving the house, and since we meet at Dunkin’ Donuts I don’t really have any options when I get there. (Look, don’t judge. Â DD isÂ a convenient location and we only buy coffee… remember, I’m gluten sensitive). Â I do love the look of the staff every Thursday when I hand them my coffee mug and already has my Ghee and coconut oil in the bottom.
The rest of the day is unremarkable, honestly. Â Lunch was yet anotherÂ salad with lots of mix-ins and celery/apples with almond butter as a side. Â I have some nuts throughout the day… and otherwise I only have to struggle to ignore the snack closet in the kitchen twice today. Â So far that’s probably the one thing that I just can’t get over… how used to snacking on little stuff I am. Â Even though I’m not hungry in the true sense, I just love to have something to crunch on. Â It’s a really hard habit to break.
Laura is being amazing (nothing new) by helping to prepare separate stuff for me. Â So, when I get home, she has kept chicken out of the noodles and just put some stir-fried veggies with it. Â So, that was dinner. Â Again, I’m really trying to listen to my body more and realize that if I’m getting the munchies, I should just grab some water or (in the evening) some ginger tea.
As for everything I listed in the first post that I was going to try and be aware of, honestly I don’t notice much yet. Â Nothing big with the skin. Nothing terribly noticeable with the voice/sinuses. Â So, it’s certainly not a step backwards, but I can’t claim any major changes yet.
On to day 5…
