Eek to your holiday costs Lotte! We have booked a week in Ireland and Easter, will hopefully be more fun than previous as sleep has improved here so we won't be total zombies.....
Aidan has perked up, finally stopped retching late morning. Had a bit of tea so fingers crossed...
RF - urgh to the diarrhoea, hope he gets over it soon. Still waiting to see if A's was bug or food poisoning, Benedict has been a nightmare all day and messed around by the toilet any chance he had, picked up Aidan's toothbrush and stuck it in his mouth, and also used Aidan's cup so if it is a bug I'm doomed!!!
Well i can have leafy greens with lunch and dinner but only 60-70g, I have had a bit more to be honest. Feels v wrong. My digestion has not adapted yet, only a week to go though. As you don't eat carbs/sugar its meant to kick start burning the fat you have laid down especially around the middle and yes it does seem to be working.
I had egg, halloumi, cream cheese and walnuts for breakfast. Think I might finish the halloumi at lunchtime with some salad, nuts and boursin. Then dinner will be salmon, spinach and sour cream. No snacks allowed. No milk in tea or coffee either.
Ah Hoggle good that you are talking and have a plan, am hoping so much that its short term. Plus you want to be able to enjoy the maternity leave a bit xxx
Glad they are letting you continue with the art Caro and that its helping you. My friend is starting chemo again and her positive attitude is amazing, just so crap she is having to do it all again.
CM - yoga might just help as some time out, although personally I think having the right teacher is important. Classes can be totally different with some focusing a lot more on the meditation side and others on the physical movements. We used to have to try and headstand for 2 minutes - great for concentration if nothing else!!! Taking the time to just lie flat on your back at the beginning of class and concentrate on breathing is also something that makes you a lot more aware of what your body is doing. xx
CC - hope things are ok with you and there is light at the end of the tunnel - hope your pilates classes are going well too. Looking forward to the race report when its ready.
Pip - good luck for the move!
Caro - hope lunch goes ok. Liking your links on FB, always good to do some thinking and change perspective, I def get stuck in a rut!
I'm doing the high fat diet from The Times the other week, have had no refined sugar at all since I started but went to a friends and had soup with bread as I didn't want to stress her out with my meat and fat requirements!!! Another week to go and the weight is shifting, no starchy carbs at all, no fruit, not much veg, am surprising myself I'm sticking to it but as I'd already given up booze for the month I thought I'd see what it was like.
