    Just taking a quick break from cleaning for a sit down. On day 3 of Atkins and I have to say, i'm feeling rough (Atkins Flu?? Whats that thing they call it?)

    I'm having to sit down for a minute while cleaning, and my eyes feel so heavy. Not hungry at all and I just want to sleep.

    BUT, it's all for a good reason. I know i'll pick up soon.

    I'm coping well so far with the food. Today I had

    B: None
    L: Cheese coleslaw and chicken
    T: Sausages and green beans and broccoli

    W: Not enough, but lots more tonight
    E: See above lol
    A: none

    Yep sounds like Atkins flu alright - and although you probably feel a bit yuck, it will pass, I promise - and then you know your body has cleaned out all the bad carbs.

    Thanks everyone, good to know i'll be feeling good soon.

    OH suprised me with a glass of wine last night, I hope it hasn't thrown me completely off track. However, being drunk with Atkins Flu is er - fun? I was very drunk after a couple of sips and a bit dizzy. Cheap night I guess!

    Will the wine make a big difference? Is it full of carbs? I know we shouldn't drink but it was hard to refuse! Maybe should have been stronger though.

    Today I have my left over beef curry with beans and brocolli for lunch, and pork steaks for tea.

    I have a rather large headache (hangover?) today and no apetite and just getting a shower wore me out til I had to sit down lol. I hope this is the sign i'm on my way to ketosis and I'll feel better soon!

    B: Cuppa tea
    L: Beef Curry & Veg
    T: Pork Steak & Green Veg
    W: LOTS!
    E: Probably not
    A: Nope, OH is away tonight so i'll be good!

    Come saturday or sunday i'd say you'll be like the energizer bunny running around :) It's such a small price to pay for losing weight and actually not going hungry.
    I think all wine is differant. I drink white blossom hill and thats 7.5g per bottle. Don't usually go by glasses :D

    Thanks Jim, No it's less money, but less stress and no commute so it works out :) We're putting in an application for a house just down the road tomorrow. All change!

    I told my boss, he was a little dissapointed but I can't stay there just to please him!

    Had some pork steaks for tea. I have a huge headache but feeling less tired now :)

    Just had a waver at lunch. Started to feel very sick, hungry, faint, stomach ache. All I wanted was some bread or a bagel or anything. But I powered on! Had a chicken leg, salad and cheese coleslaw, so I'm feeling happy now :)

    Just looking at sofas and things for new house! Eeek! Excited! Application went in this morning.
