Today I woke up feel sick and lethargic. Once I was up and had a cup of fennel tea I felt much better, I think this is my body telling me it is noticing the change in my diet. I did find that today I was hungry a lot less, so this is a good sign.
I had been looking forward to this morning breakfast, berries with yogurt and homemade granola. It didn’t disappoint. The granola was lovely and so easy to make, I’m please to say I have some left for another breakfast. It seem to help fill me up as I didn’t fill the urge to snack in between breakfast and lunch
At lunchtime we have swimming lesson for Willem and we usually have lunch in the cafe. This week he had lunch, sausage with chips and beans, while I had a herbal tea. It took all my will power to not pinch a chip or four. When I got home I made myself a chicken salad which was worth the wait, I even got to eat it in peace. Again I felt more satisfied than I have the last few days, I didn’t even get the urge to pick at children’s dinner.
Dinner time came and it was Lemon Chicken Kebabs and they were yummy, I had to take them off the skewers though as they didn’t fit in griddle. I choose to have salad again as I enjoy it with chicken and now that it fills me up. I still have that urge to follow it up with pudding and Rob has just sat next to me eating a packet of malteasers, but it’s not as strong as earlier in the week.
I think my body is starting to get the idea that we are making a change and that the usual sugar snacks aren’t coming. I did start off feeling bad today but as the day has gone on I feel a lot better. I think a change is on it’s way, lets see what tomorrow brings
