Thanks for the encouragement, Able! I’m still on a very small dose of anxiety medication (cipralex) which I found helps me to manage my anxiety for the most part. I’m verrrrry slowly lowering my dose from 1 pill to a half, to a quarter, to a quarter every 2 days etc. It would be great to be off of that medication! (on a side note, I’ve also stopped taking birth control pills so my liver is going to have a bit of a break!)
I had my first night out yesterday with a girlfriend and was surprised about how much fun I had! I had club soda (is this ok to drink? hope so!) with a couple of slices of lemon while she drank her beer and gin and tonics.
I had tonnes of energy (from adding some vitamins in to my schedule yesterday? maybe from the piece of coconut bread I decided to try out?) and I was in a great mood. It’s funny that I noticed a difference because usually when I go have a few drinks I start to feel a bit sick (bloated, uncomfortable feeling, skin goes red) but this time I had none of that.
Yay for day 8 starting today!
From last Sunday I have lost 1.5 inches from my waist and weight has gone down 6.8 pounds. Pretty sweet side effect! (but going to make sure to stay on the coconut bread a couple of times of day as well as the rest of my veggies and kefir and eggs and add in a tiny bit of organic chicken)
has anyone every breaded their organic chicken with the crumbs left in the pan from the coconut bread? It seems a shame to toss them so I have them in a little bag. I think I’m going to give it a go!
