Finding inspiration from myself....

I've gone back and read my blog from when I first started low carbing and it's been a bit of a revelation and inspiration for me.  Reading my enthusiasm and amazement at how easy it was and how I suffered no hunger pains was easy for me to relate to because that was ME.  I remember that time.

I regret becoming blaze' about it.  I guess it happened around the time of Mr T's accident and everything was just so overwhelming that the little slips started happening.

But now reading on those early first week losses has got me revved up again.  The past week has got me on fire again and I'm starting to feel/see the rewards again with my clothes and the scales.

The days ahead will see me focussing on my meals again especially veges and salads.  I have two big cauli's in the fridge so I'll be looking to make the most of those.  I think tonight we will have pumpkin and cauli mash with pork chops.




I'm so glad it's Friday.  I'm looking forward to a weekend where we're not sick or have any plans - just a weekend to chill out.  I want to get out in my garden and prune my roses and do some weeding and tidying up.  There's so many things I want to do.

Only three hours to go before my weekend begins.

Pulling in the reins . . .

Over the last 4 - 6 weeks or so I've managed to gain around 3 kgs.
I'm not dipping my head in shame, I'm just going to be realistic about it and rectify it. Cause to be honest I feel like crap.

While I'm basically still eating the same there have been a bit too many carbs and sugar slipping in over that time which don't go well with a high protein diet.. Crunch time came for me on Wednesday night when I went to a pot luck dinner for a friends birthday and I made completely all the wrong choices. Well actually apart from my cheeseboard and fruit I didn't have much choice.  That night I had a bad sleep.  I woke up with stomach pains.  Too make matters worse the hostess packed me up a lunchbox for yesterday.  Curried chicken and rice.  Not just a little bit of rice, but a lot of rice and I ate the bloody lot because I was hungry.  Last night my stomach was just so sore and bloatey that as soon as I got home I had to put my dressing gown on to relieve the pressure in my belly.

This is the first time since low carbing have I had this feeling and pain of bloating.  Don't have to be a rocket scientist to know what caused it.  I'll make sure it's my last.  I feel so damned tired and drained.

So over the next few days I'm going to nurture my body, feed it well and get back into the groove.

I need more energy!!!!

Miserable day . . .

Winter has well and truly arrived.   A very bleak day,  - wet, cold and windy.  The garden at work is looking quite glum.   Look...
