I put together 4 IKEA Billy bookcases today. That’s all I have to say. Day Ten: Hopefully no repercussions!
I kept to the same pattern today. Breakfast with eggs, detox tea around 11ish, shake and fibre boost for lunch, lots of herbal teas, fizz stick at 4ish and dinner by 6. I have had trouble saying no to the bread though… I had 2 bits of toast with breakfast and garlic bread with dinner, … Continue reading Day Two: Not much to report I’m afraid
I haven't written for a week because I've been busy getting myself prepared for leaving work. Not for long, but for 3 months I've been granted the ability to almost completely work from home, which fills me with such relief. I do wish it could have come earlier because the last 2 weeks have been … Continue reading Detective work
For the past few days I've not been paying enough attention to my body, it's been calling out but I've been far too busy worrying about seemingly everything else I can. A blinding headache for 2 days that I put down to caffeine withdrawal. Aching limbs and excessive tiredness (still hard to notice as they come … Continue reading Mother-effing Vegemite
More than a few months ago, starting to care more about my health and nutrition, I bought into the hype about cooking oils. Let me re-phrase that. I kept hearing that olive oil was bad for you when heated and used in cooking, and that coconut oil was a good potential replacement, because it was not denatured at high … Continue reading Nuts for Coconuts!
And there it was, quite obviously in front of me all that time. You know how the iPhones create index pages of Safari browsers so you can keep them loaded whilst browsing on another (maybe you don't?). Sometimes they get so ridiculously stacked up with TED talks and links that I want to read, that I just go … Continue reading The fault in our Cinnamon
Stick with me, it gets better... It's Sunday. I got back from holidays a week ago and I've worked 3 days out of the six and I'm BLAH! I have spent the morning with my daughter, dozing off on the couch while she watched movies and occasionally startled me out of the doze. It may … Continue reading The end of week 1 of yet another recovery phase
... and now I feel out of touch with my previous direction, and have so many fresh ideas on my mind that I am stifled and don't know where to start. Whilst this is actually a welcome feeling, too much creativity often causes me to procrastinate and produce nothing. Travelling overseas last week was a triumph of many … Continue reading I’ve been away…
It's been almost 3 week now since I was diagnosed with a dairy allergy and I started removing as much as I could find from my diet. This involved an easy blood test at Healthscope costing $100 to test for 5 main allergies. As far as I could see there wasn't one for simply testing dairy … Continue reading Dropping the Dairy
It takes some time to settle into a new routine, to find how you will feel in amongst the day-to-day activities, and I somehow got here without planning to or understanding why. I thought I wanted less time working but now I don't really know if that was true. Perhaps what I needed was time away from where … Continue reading Escapism
