Day Nine-Committed!

Woke up feeling much better than yesterday, after a good eight hours sleep.
Did some resistance body weight stuff, followed by some yoga flexibility work.
Ready for my day!
Took Ben for his surf lesson at Harlyn, giving me a couple of hours 'me time'. Yeah! I'm sure anyone with children can relate to craving 'me time'. I don't get much so today I enjoyed a walk on the white sands, shell hunting and some reading.
Felt really spacey by midday and am having lots of 'down' moments. Feel quite flat and Emma says that,of course, it's from withdrawal of ALL sugars. Sticking with it though, nine days down and I'm proud of myself.

My goal is to sort my gut and that's what I'm focussing on. Long term health is way more important than a sugar fix, and if I don't sort it now it will only get worse and develop into who knows what.
Bad news - Emma emailed tonight to say cream and cows milk yoghurt are off menu!! She wants me to leave dairy alone as well as everything else!! But I can eat coconut cream, so my berries don't have to be lonely! Too late today though, will start tomorrow.

Today I ate :
Two baked apples for breakfast with organic probiotic yoghurt, almonds, and cinnamon. Yum!
Lunch : sliced roast turkey, cold. Left over salsa (home made) from last night.
Dinner: bolognaise sauce (home made) with lettuce and rocket leaves, and grilled courgettes.
Snack : blackberries and cream
I'm drinking lots of water with slices of lime in , feels and tastes like a treat! And my usual vat of peppermint and other herbal teas.
Day 9 down, 33 days to go!
