Thanks for all your input everyone xx
Day 2 continued
Well for tea I had two small pieces of cod steak dry fried in cajun seasoning with dry fried mushrooms in cajun seasoning and a dollop of cottage cheese. I thoroughly enjoyed that with 500ml of water.
Before my tea, I had a bath as I was frozen and promptly fell asleep for two hours which I find helpful on this diet, especially in the early days. When I compare my plan to the last time I did CD, I found sleep helped a lot (when I could - child/dog/hubby permitting).
Im definitely in Ketosis which I know is quick after 2 days but I used to be the queen of carbs (hence the huge tummy) so it doesnt take long for ketosis to kick in, especially if you are following the diet 100%.
Im just glugging my 3rd shake now with my 5th bottle of 500mls of water taking my intake to 2.5 litres today (all ice cold - I can only stomach ice cold water, weirdly). Before I made the shake, I was absolutely ravenous even though I felt full after my little meal. I was hoping that I'd never get like this on my plan but im putting the rumblies down to changes that my body simply has to get used to.
I can't express enough how much I love the choc mint compared to all the other flavours. Its so rich and tasty - I think the mint slightly taints the chemically taste associated with these shakes and thats fine by me.
My daughter just asked me to get her some ice cream as she got a sore throat and I wasn't even tempted to lick the lid or spoon (poor love, sore throats she cannot handle very well - must explain that she is a special needs child. She is almost 15 and is the love of my life. She is only physically disabled and has a 2 -3 year development delay. ooooh, she really is such a sweetheart). Normally Id have my head in the ice cream tub, devouring as much as a brain freeze would allow!
Going to settle down to watch a dvd and then off to bed. Day three beckons and those packets of sawdust await with a vengeance tomorrow.
Hugs and loves x
I love your positive approach.. just what I need.. and I also love it how you call them packs of sawdust... very funny
lol Kes, - its TRUE! Its chemically enhanced sawdust that magics away the lard.
Oh Chic mint shake? How I love thee. I couldnt wait to get out of bed and take in your silky smoothness with absolutely NO bitter after taste. I coupled you with a 500ml bottle of ice cold water and I feel that I could take on the world. ****** knows what im going to be like on day 33 let alone day 3 but I might as well as relish in the positivity whilst its still in abundance!
My AMAZING CDC came this morning to exchange my banana and butterscotch shakes for choc mint and I asked for 4 bars. Now, when I CD last time, those bars were the treatiest of treats EVER. Id either cut them in half to form a twin style twix bar and have one with my lunch shake and one after my mini fish dinner or I would chop them into miniscule cubes and save them for a spell of TV at night (after my mini fish dinner).
The plan today is that Ill have another yummy choc mint shake for lunch, then my fish dinner with a devilled egg and veggies and THEN........ dvd night with a tub of choppped chews that I will put in the freezer for an hour before hand (to make them extra chewy thus lasting longer) and chew on them slowly. I will savour every last bloody crumb, I will tell you that for nothing!
Romanticising on this eating plan sure helps - Im not sure who I am trying to convince... you or me??!!! But so far its all sooooooo good. At £40 week, it flaming well has to be and all!
by the way, my tummy has gone down A LOT. I don't look like Im about to give birth anymore but quite easily be mistaken for being 5 months pregnant, instead of 9.

Day 3 continued
Went out to town this afternoon with my lovely girl and her freind. This involved a trip to Mcheart attacks. I was very good and had an ice cold water (it costs more than diet coke!). I was restrained and I REALLY did not feel deprived one bit.
Came home ravenous and wolfed down my choc mint - my beloved chocky minty lushy saw dust. Yum! Polished that off with more ice cold water (500ml).
Tea was a few crumbly pieces of chicken breast, 1 dollop of cottage cheese, 3 mushrooms and more water and tonight? OMG - TONIGHT is chewy chocky orange bar night, cut into a gazillion pieces. I cannot wait to savour every single morsel.
Tomorrow is my true test day. Im away for the day down in Bicester with a few friends. Ive packed two shakes and a bar and a 2ltr bottle of water. I have one of those cappucino wizzers in my handbag so I can mix my shakes on the go. Have you tried them? They are only 99p from Ikea and mix your drinks a flaming treat. You just have to mix your shakes into a paste first then slowly add more water as you wizz it up to a delicious froth.
Im determined to get through tomorrow as I know there will be treats on the tables, cupcakes and sammiches. Instead I shall tell myself that this food is the anti-****** and that I will die if even one crumb comes near my mouth. Thats going to take some bloody will power, I tell you xx
Hugs and loves x
I cannot wait to get to that level - good for you! The day I can bend over without passing out will be a good day indeed x
