So there are a number of things that I’m looking forward to including in our diets, one of which is fermented veggies, I have been hanging out to start having these and fresh herbs to make our food more flavourful.

I had to laugh at my husband today, because he REALLY REALLY misses his cups of tea, and the occasional coffee. I think he is having some withdraws from the caffeine and sugar, but more importantly the daily routine of making several cups of tea. We are drinking ginger tea and mint tea, which have been surprisingly nice. For me I don’t really like herbal tea so the adjustment of my taste buds which is a real surprise.

I laugh at him about the fact that he would like to cheat on that aspect…. Out of all the things that you can’t have at the moment He would think about cheating for a cup of TEA!

For me at this point it would have to be something really really good to make me cheat, mainly because I know how hard those first few day were and I don’t want to do them again if I can help it.

Another unexpected side effect for me is confidence. As each day goes by and I am developing my self control, I’m feeling more and more empowered. I can change my health, and the direction of my life. I have noticed today that I have lost some weight in my face, not large amounts that others will notice but I notice. I was smiling today and totally could feel my cheeks in a new way.

Ben on the other hand has not seen many results as yet, His stomach is still painful, however that pain has changed, so that is different. He has stopped farting, which if you are one of my facebook friends you might have seen several posts about how bad his farting has been of late. So I’m very pleased about that one.  I do wish we would have made more progress with his stomach pain.

Food for today

mineral water
beef stock
Mince, boiled, in beef stock with carrots and broccoli for Breakfast
Pumpkin soup for lunch
Dinner tonight was Slow boiled Duck! Yum! with mashed Cauliflower, carrots and Broccoli, with juices from the duck reduced to make a really rich gravy.
