Thanks Dolly - I'm enjoying sharing my daily experiences with you guys too!
Well, it's day 5 of my first week and I feel great. No headaches to report yesterday either, so I guess my body is fully adjusted. We went shopping again yesterday to buy some books for our little man and ended up being in the foodhall during luch time. Cam had a large sub from subway and Connor had his vegemite sandwich.... I had a sachet in my handbag just incase and I wasn't even hungry so I waited until 2 o'clock when we got home, to have my lunch sachet. The funny thing is that it wasn't even hard to sit and watch Cam eat the sub. Late in the afternoon, my brother-in-law came over with his icecream van to give Connor an icecream sunday, cos he'd been working the van in Ellenbrook which is round the corner form The Vines. Cameron had a sunday for himself too, a very large one, and I was offered one too. But, I said no and went inside (that took strength I tell you!
). Then at about 6:30pm, we went to Cam's folk's house in Bullsbrook to catch up with them for an hour or so and to find out how the deal with Denham is going. Cam's mum had been saving a packet of macadamia and white chocolate gourmet cookies for us and kept offering me some. I think she was a little offended because I wouldn't have any, but I stayed strong while Cam and Connor had one - they looked really good though and I must admit that I was extremely tempted....but I reminded myself that I'd done 4 days and if I had one small cookie, then I'd out my body out of ketosis mode and would have to start again, so I refrained. THEN, they bought out the packet of smarties they'd bought for Connor - he had one and decided he didn't want anymore, so she kept pushing for us to take them home with us. I said no, cos if it's in the fridge I might be tempted and she pushed and pushed but I won and the smarties are still out in Bullsbrook.
I'm really proud of myself for resisting all the times I could have really stuffed up this TF plan yesterday.
Today, Cam has gone into the city and will be picking me up some fresh tea (our good friends own the tiny coffee shop in Plaza Arcade in the city, which specialises in flavoured coffee beans and teas). On the plan, I can have 3 cups of normal tea per day and if I want anymore than that, the rest have to be decaff - 3 normal teas per day is sufficient but I don't really like tea bags, so can't wait to get the fresh tea home. The only thing I'm a little worried about is that I'm at home without Cameron to keep an eye on me and I realy hope that I'm strong enough today to stick to this plan and not feel tempted by mum's left-over lasagne in the fridge or the Venetian cookies (my favourite) in the pantry, or the coffee and especially the peanut paste on toast.
So, if you guys don't mind, I'll probably be back quite a few times today, just to keep me busy and my mind off the naughty foods.
I hope you're finding the diet your doc gave you alright and I hope it works to bring your colesterol down a bit.
Thanks again for your wonderful support
