Day 81

Monday 21st March 2016

When it comes to proteins I seem to always default to chicken, I have been told that I need to mix it up a bit. I can only have chicken, fish, eggs, seeds, nuts and pulses.

I have not really ever had pulses, I don’t even know what to do with them. I thought maybe a soup. Jennie made me one today.  She added lentils, chickpeas and a selection of vegetables.

I really wasn’t sure that I would like it, however it was really nice. I have been missing out all these years

Day 67

Monday 7th March 2016

I got up at 5am to pick up Matt from the airport. I had to take my breakfast with me because I knew I wouldn’t be back in time.

Every day I find myself having to make choices, do I stay on the right path or do I take a diversion, sometimes there are far too many temptations in the way. After a while the right choice becomes easier though.

So I choose the road to a healthier life. I just hope it lasts.

Day 66

Sunday 6th March 2016.

I woke up to the scales being 2lbs down, it makes the pain and hunger over the last few days worth it.

Today is Mothers Day and it meant that I could have a treat meal, so I went to Frankie & Benny’s.

I loved my lunch of chicken salad and potatoes, potatoes are not on my daily allowance but I really did enjoy them. I did have a dessert but I couldn’t eat it, In fact I was rather disappointed. Which can only be a good thing, my taste buds are changing and I have gone off foods I used to like.

Day 62

Wednesday 2nd March 2016

I know you shouldn’t get on the scales everyday, but I can’t help myself. I have hardly noticed whether my weight goes up or down over the last month, but today for some reason it did bother me. We have these smart scales that pairs with MyFitnessPal which means you don’t have to manually put in your weight. It also means you can’t cheat your weight, even though on this occasion I wanted too.

Went to see Jenny the nutritionist she said the reason I got upset was probably my hormones. She gave me another facial, this one was more relaxing.

It is hard keeping up a balanced diet all the time, especially when you are in a hurry.

I am doing OK, I am keeping up the diet fairly well, however  over the last week I have dropped the ball when it comes to my water intake. I really need to try harder.

I went for a walk with my mum today.

Day 61

Tuesday 1st March 2016

Went for a morning swim with a friend, the water was so cold that we had to swim extra fast just to warm up. We did swim 30 lengths though.

Did my sewing class, this always stops me from feeling hungry.

I made a lamb bolognese for the first time. It tasted lovely and instead of having it with pasta I had mange tout. I loved it, I might do that again.

Day 47

Tuesday 16th February 2016

Doing well on the diet no real issues.

Went swimming first time in weeks. I swam 30 lengths went with a friend and she swims so fast that it was hard keeping up with her, it meant I swam faster which was good I suppose.

When I had my blood test, one of the results was that I am extremely dehydrated which means I need to drink 4 litres of water a day. I am trying, but I am finding this hard.

Day 46

Monday 15th February 2016

Weight went up, but it was expected with the extra food I had yesterday.

I thought I would feel really hungry today but I haven’t not at all which was really good. I put a little weight on but that was expected.

I tried cooking with coconut oil today for the first time. Love it.

All in all a pretty good day.

19st 12.6lbs.  0.3lbs ⬆️.    22.4lbs⬇️total 😀

Day 44

Saturday 13th February 2016

Went to Macclesfield to see Matt’s brother.

I had to take my own food, but it didn’t bother me that I was eating anything different, it was nice to just get out and go somewhere.

I am still not eating anything for 5 hours between my meals. It is getting easier I can however have water and herbal teas

I have found out today though that I can not travel for to long as I need the toilet every 5 minutes. Must be all the water.

Day 42

Thursday 10th February 2016

When you haven’t had something for so long, you really appreciate it when you can have it all of sudden.

Butter, coconut oil and extra virgin olive oil are the items I need to start using again. The reason being that when you start using them after a 2 week absence it helps to break down fats and will help you to lose more weight. When the diet inclusions are constantly changing, it means that you won’t plateau for a long period of time.

Day 41

Wednesday 10th February 2016

Day 14 of detox

LAST DAY yeah! Tomorrow phase 3 starts.

I couldn’t keep a smile off my face all day, I was really happy that I had got through the worst of it. Over the last 2 weeks I would say I wasn’t very happy at all I was tired, hungry, shaky and basically unresponsive.

I now feel that I have a little bit of a life back.
