It is now the end of day 4! Today was a pretty good day. I had good energy and my mood stayed pretty even all day. The things that irritated me today would have irritated me regardless. I did have points of the day where I just felt a bit foggy and also a disconnected feeling. I ate a Larabar for lunch and maybe that had something to with it. They are Whole30 approved so I don’t think it had anything to do with that.
I made some kinda fried chicken tonight with wild carrots and swiss chard delicious! For the chicken I put coconut oil and almond oil in a frying pan. While that heated up I “breaded” the chicken slices in 1/2 cup coconut flour and a 1/2 cup tapioca flour. In the flour mixture I added ground mustard, salt, pepper, lime, and balsamic vinegar. I mixed in water thinking it would make it more like a batter, but that was not the case. I should have just left it as more of a dry rub I think. I am allergic to eggs, so, the traditional method is out. All said and done, it still turned out amazing 🙂 I popped each piece of my breaded chicken in the hot oil and cooked each side until it looked pretty crispy. I then put them in the oven to finish cooking at 400 degrees. The wild carrots and swiss chard I just sauteed in ghee and almond oil. My boyfriend liked it so much he asked to have it again tomorrow- that says something 🙂
Overall, today was a good day. Oh, and I did make a few days worth of my life budget. It seems to be working thus far. I want to add that I made it another day without a single cigarette!!
Mood- pretty good
Mental clarity- up and down, felt unattached most of the day.
Tomorrow is another day 🙂
As always- FUCK YOU CANCER!!!! Thank you Lord for the life, mind, and body you have provided me.
