Now in saying this I realise that:
- I'm not very good at hugely dramatic changes, and
- Two weeks before Christmas is not really the ideal time to be overhauling ones eating habits.
I really like his idea of eating less foods that are high in HI (Human Interference). With this in mind I have stocked up on fruit and veg and everytime I want a lolly or a biscuit I have a few bit size pieces of fruit. I have been making some sensational smoothies for breakfast in addition to a piece of toast and a poached egg - I'll have mine extra soft please!
Lunch has been chicken and salad, but I make my own dressing - something different everyday and NO chemicals!! Dinner is veg or salad and a small piece of meat. Though we treated ourselves to sushi the other night. And I have had a glass of wine here and there though I find myself feeling more like a run instead!!
We ae doggie sitting so its been fairly easy to get in a couple of walks everyday!
I definitely noticed that I had more energy earlier in the week; which is great because my job has just become a hell of a lot more hectic (I love it), my self-esteem has improved (no more depressing thoughts), I'm craving healthy food, not junk and I am having some strange dreams - usually loosely based on something I have seen on the news (I EVEN had one where I was having sex with my husband!!).
However yesterday and today I feel like I am hungover, despite having hardly anything to drink. Last night I was in bed until 7.30pm and slept through till 6am! Very unusual as I'm a 7 to 8 hour tops kind of girl!! I just feel tired, I want to do stuff but am really struggling to haul my ass of the couch!!
I hope its just my body getting used to this new routine and not something more sinister! I want my energy back!
