I started my renewed attempt at sole sourcing on 12th January 2013 after many months away from it. I have struggled many times to start CD again and had to have a big break from it to feel motivated again (not to mention a considerable weight gain). Am turning 35 in May, at which point I need to have shed almost 4 stone.
After stuffing my face for 4 days before Day 1, I found the first day very hard with major carb withdrawal. Got a fricking sore throat and head cold on Day 1 too. This normally would have given me an excuse to terminate my attempt but i persevered and spent the whole day in bed with an Evian sports bottle and my 3 choc tetras. Did not drink anywhere near enough water. Experimented with Earl Grey tea which made me want to hurl. Peppermint was better.
Possibly the worst day of my week so far. Struggled with a rumbly tummy, felt like a giant windbag. Tried to fill windbag with 2.25 litres of water semi-successfully. Am regretting decision to order 4 weeks worth of choc tetras meaning I actually need to drink 3 litres of water. Craving something savoury, ate a tiny bit of salt.
Had a dream last night that I had a major binge in several bakeries/patisseries somewhere on the continent. Woke up and was relieved that this wasn't the case. Took a sicky off work.
Still off sick from work. Spent most of the day in bed, bar going out to buy Kleenex. Stomach still rumbling, still a windbag, but did better with the water (2 litres).
Spent a considerable portion of the day looking at foodporn.com, almost went for a frozen kebab, but decided to play Assassins Creed 3 on the PS3 for 3 hours instead (better than knitting).
Bought a Morphy Richards One Cup kettle boiler thing online to cheer me up, this may help my water struggle.
Still sick but feel more normal today. Rediscovered MiniMins; went through all the possible things one can do with a choc tetra. Decided to freeze a couple and eat like ice cream. Semi-frozen was better, poked a hole in it and squeezed out semi-frozen choc ice, ignored the poo-like look of it.
Woman has breath today so think I'm in ketosis, nothing to wee on to confirm. Ordered some sticks from Amazon.
A forum post reminded me of Marigold Bouillon, will be buying first thing tomorrow to sate savoury craving and to prevent high-blood pressure on salt licks.
To be continued tomorrow (today). Yes I have insomnia too.
