I’m sweet enough

Today marks 50 days without sugar.  Previously I reached 78 days, but if I’m being honest with myself, I didn’t reeeeeeally get that far, as I’d had the odd scone or the odd small sugary thing, like a chocolate at work or something.  This time I’ve actually managed to stay away from it completely.  It is…

Flexibility

July has been a good month.  On the first of the month I decide to (again, for the bazillionth time) quit sugar.  This time, I’ve also added in flour products too, which I think was what kiboshed me previously.  The upshot of it is, in the simplest of terms, is that I don’t eat a…

Small steps

Hopefully this won’t jinx it, but it’s fair to say we’ve had a fabulous summer so far.  There was a week or so where it cooled down, was a bit dreich and autumnal, but thankfully that passed quickly and the summer has returned in full force.  I have to say I do love the heat,…

Move over May…

Fingers crossed I’ll be uttering that on the 9th of June, but in the meantime, it’s nearly bloody June!  Jings.  I’ve had a busy month, a lot of which has been spent on holiday, woo hoooo!  May heralds the now annual trip to Lanzarote to watch my friends beast themselves in the sun and wind…

4 down, 8 to go

May, already!  Well, tomorrow at least.  Time flies when you’re having fun.  Also when you get older.  I thought I’d stick with recent tradition and do a bit of a round-up of the month.  So 4 months in to my debt repayment year and this weekend it’s definitely biting more than most.  Where I should…

Spring is in the air 

April already! A quarter of the year has already gone by, but happily it has brought with it the first signs of spring, and very welcome lighter nights. March has been a good month, and progress is being made. I’ve finished one six-week gym programme and I’ve started the next one. I’ve yet to hit…

Livin’ la vida loca(rb)

  So it’s been five weeks since I’ve been eating low carb, high fat (LCHF), and in that time I’ve lost 8 lbs, for a total of 23 lbs since last May.  A week of that (well 5 days) was when I was in Lanza and I was eating bread and having some booze, so…

28 days later

I’ve finally managed to reach 28 days sugar-free.  I’ll be honest and say that I wasn’t sure I’d get here, but here I am and I feel very happy about it.  I was expecting cravings to reach epic proportions, but amazingly they’ve been okay.  I keep waiting for that wave to hit, but it hasn’t…

New Territories

Today i’ve staggered into new territory.  Last night was the first leg day at the gym for months, so I am actually staggering about, especially in the vicinity of stairs, but I digress. Not that I’m counting, but I’ve been off sugar for 523 hours now.  I’ve never gone this long before without having any…

168 hours

Not that I’m counting every minute, but I’ve managed to have no sugar whatsoever for seven straight days. None at all. The strange thing is that it’s not been that difficult.  It speaks volumes when I say that everyday I have a general feeling of guilt about what I’ve eaten (even after waking up, when…
