This week the cheating began on Tuesday and there has been something every day. I’ve managed to stay dairy free and meat free but everything else has been broken in some way shape or form. And on Sunday I am suffering for it. I am sore, have a migraine from hell and my eyes are stinging.
It began after a difficult bike ride. I managed the four miles in to town. But then I had a Fanta. I needed something cold, wet and fizzy and full of sugar. In hindsight I should have packed a banana. Later in the evening I had a beer.
Then at my mothers I had forgotten to take my oatcakes so whilst I stuck to the rest of the diet I had Crackerbreads and allowed myself a glass of wine.
It really has just gone downhill. There’s been one thing after another and you know what aside from the glass of wine none of it has been worth the pain.
I’ve learned a lot and hopefully I won’t make the same dumb mistakes again. Because I’d forgotten how much things could hurt.
Today has been good – I’ve had my smoothie, a bowl of soup, loads of water and bean casserole for dinner. I won’t be having anything else.
