Today I drank this:
Nectarine, apple, orange smoothie.
And I ate this:
Quinoa Lentil Pilaf and Tomato Cucumber Salad
And I ate this:
Roasted beets, coconut collard greens and quinoa.
The coconut collard greens were AMAZING. I can't believe I've never tried coconut milk before. I will be using MUCH of this going forward...if I can figure out how.
Today I was washing my face and I noticed my skin is noticeably different. I have a fairly clear complexion as it is. I am 46 and postmenopausal after all, so while I'm still prone to the occasional zit I don't get routine breakouts. Wrinkles are of greater concern. But my skin has a much more even tone. I'm far less blotchy and less pale. Complexion improvement is commonly sighted as a side effect of the Reset, so yay!!
I wish I could stop working myself to death so I could figure out what other side effects I might be having. My energy is about normal, but I think given the schedule I've been keeping I'd probably be dragging normally, so maybe if I wasn't flogging myself professionally I would probably be moving furniture or painting the barn (as if I could afford paint...I crack me up). My back is killing me but I have no doubt that's from 12 hours a day at a computer then cooking another 2 hours. I go to the chiropractor tomorrow, thank God.
I also wish I could do some yoga or go for a damn walk. The only exercise I've had since I started this has been yardwork or hauling groceries in from the garage. I know I'd be less achy, and my back would feel better, if I could sneak in a session of Les Mills Flow.
But wishing isn't going to make it happen now is it?
I really need to find a way to sneak some actual LIFE into my wake/work/cook/work/sleep routine.
Adding that to the to-do list for tomorrow.
Ooh!! It's time to sleep. My favorite.
