Yeah, thanks Lizzie, that was really nice of you to say that and like Dolly said, feel free to join us for a chat whenever you feel like it.
I've just finished my dinner (home made vegetable soup using allowed vegetables and I cooked up some lean meat and mixed it through the soup - very satisfying!). I also had a small amount of diet jelly and feel really good.
No headaches today and I feel like I have a bit more energy compared to yesterday. I even forgot to eat my apple for afternoon tea, so only one piece of fruit today.
I'm so pleased with how the 3 of us are doing. Hayley D, don't woory too much about the chocolate etc, just jump back on board tomorrow. I have not caved yet, which I can't believe. It was a bit difficult not to have some peanut paste on toast this morning, when I was making my little Connor some breakfast - peanut paste on toast and chocolate are the 2 things I absolutely love....but I didn't have any - I didn't even lick the knife! Hee hee!
I hope you leg gets better soon Dolly. I will start walking with my little man again tomorrow. I thought I'd leave it a couple of days, while I get used to the diet change. Thought I'd go for 40mins tomorrow, to see how I cope and after that, gradually increase it back up to an hour and a half.
My thoughts are with you both again tomorrow. I will be tested - I'm meeting a friend whom I haven't seen for a while, at a cafe/restaurant in the Swan Valley tomorrow morning for a cuppa. Normally I'd have 2 lattes and a cake but I'm going to try to stick to a cup of black tea instead. I'll let you know how that turns out!
Can we have Liptons caramel flavoured black tea, if there's no sugar or milk added to it?
I have some in the cupboard but couldn't find any nutritional information on the box, so was unsure what's in it.
Chat again tomorrow guys. Best wishes.
