REBOOT: V4 Day 15/30

Halfway!!!! Whooooooo-hooooo! This feels amazing. I even did a HIIT workout today – for 45 minutes – and I’ve lived to tell the tale!  Breakfast      Kept this very simple – scrambled eggs, avo, and sautéed mushrooms and onions. My new favourite thing is Red Espresso so I made myself a Red Anericano for breakfast.…

REBOOT: V4 Day 14/30

I had errands to run so decided to start the day with a proper breakfast.   Boiled eggs, onion and tomato chutney, paleo mayo, avo, and grapefruit.      Lunch was completely forgotten about. I was rushing around like a crazy person and when I got home at 3pm, only then did I realise that…

REBOOT: V4 Day 13/30

I skipped breakfast today. Well, not skipped but I just wasn’t hungry. I made myself a cup of coffee, with coconut cream, vanilla, and cinnamon … It smelled sooo good that it felt like a treat. I then get busy with the usual chores and completely lost track of time. I know it’s not good…

REBOOT: V4 Day 12/30

What a brilliant breakfast !   Spicy chicken livers, served with paleo microwave bread (which I drizzled with a touch of olive oil and toasted on a frying pan…yum!).  Lunch  This is my ‘I can’t even think about food because I’m way too tired from chasing a toddler’ lunch. Tuna mixed with paleo mayo, tossed…

REBOOT: V4 Day 11/30

 Today was all about quick and easy meals because I had a lot of other stuff to do and could not spend ages in the kitchen.  Scrambled eggs, avo, and grapefruit. I cooked the eggs in ghee and they were delicious! Lunch Then I went and did this. It’s a sure way to drink enough…

REBOOT: V4 Day 10/30

Double digits!!! Yay!!!  Pheweeeee! I am sore as hell after working out but it’s getting better… Or maybe I’m just getting used to the pain!!   I actually look forward to it! This took me by surprise late in the afternoon when I found myself doing a cardio workout because I was tired and needed a…

REBOOT: V4 Day 9/30

‘Don’t blame it on the sunshine, Don’t blame it on the moonlight, Don’t blame it on the good times…’ Blame it on the cookies!  This song was stuck in my head and I had a moment of self-induced hysterics when my brain changed the word ‘boogie’ for ‘cookies’ – and I can’t hear, or sing…

REBOOT: V4 Day 8/30

Today was just AWESOME and that’s because I discovered how to make these outstandingly mouthwatering sweet potato pies. I was craving sweetness and these little golden cups of joy are bursting with just that (so much so that all I could taste was milk tart!).  The day began with an open brandwich.    Boiled egg, bacon,…

REBOOT: V4 Day 7/30 

I’m a day late posting this but my entire family has the flu, and since I’m the only one who’s thus far managed to stay ‘free-from’ (haha!) this nastiness, I’m looking after them all (for a change…not!).  It was a pretty easy going day otherwise, and I managed to get the most tantalizing spinach dish…

REBOOT: V4 Day 6/30

This is actually starting to feel, dare I say it, easier. I am certainly sleeping better, and have also noticed that I’m not hitting that 3pm slump that has me gagging for something sugary.  Breakfast today was eggs, bacon and tomato – no pic because I ate out and forgot to take a pic. The…

REBOOT: V4 Day 5/30

A sixth of the way through! Yeah baby!! I am feelin’ goooooood!     It was back to scrambled eggs this morning, served with a mushroom, spring onion, tomato, and chilli relish, and a bowl of grapefruit (I know, it looks unnaturally fuscia in the pic … I don’t know why…). I haven’t had a headache…

REBOOT: V4 Day 4/30

 The sun’s out, the chill in the air isn’t quite so damaging, I don’t have a headache, and I feel … How can I put it … light? Yes, light. Now I don’t know if this is due to the sunshine (though I suspect it is exactly this) or the fact that my body is…

REBOOT: V4 Day 3/30

It’s almost noon, I’m already halfway through Day 3 and oh my goodness this headache has completely and utterly flattened me. I knew the ‘low-carb flu’ would be bad (or so I’ve read) but whoa boy. Nothing has prepared me for this – ok, maybe not nothing because I have lived through migraines in the past…

REBOOT: V4 Day 2/30 

I am as pleased as punch – what does that even mean…? Ok, so I googled it and the saying is ‘as pleased as Punch’, as in Punch & Judy. There was a lot of explanation about Italian origins and things but I’m not in the mood to procrastinate quite that much tonight so we’ll…

REBOOT: V4; 30 Days… It’s only 30 days

Day 1. It’s a start, I’ve followed through, I’ve ignored every temptation from a little sugar and milk in my coffee to popcorn to wine – and now there’s just 29 days to go. Crap. Wait, there’s still 6 hours left today in which I could potentially screw up but I have promised myself that…
