Ate lots didn’t I?! How many calories??? 1150 cals. Well UNDER my daily allowance (if your into calories)

Move

30 mins treadmill

Play

We did a park crawl, 3 different parks and I made sure I played as hard as my kids!

Feel

I had headaches around lunch time which I know were sugar withdrawals. I had bad cravings. I got through it though. Eating my ‘dessert’ right now. Sultanas and dates are high in natural sugars, even though I can’t eat heaps of them they certainly squash my bodies ‘want’ for sugar.

Ideas

I found a website http://www.mylifetime.com/shows/cook-yourself-thin cook yourself thin,’ apparently it is a tv show?! Anyway I found a bunch of recipes on there which are basically everyday foods altered so they have lower sugar, fat salt and all the bad stuff reduced. I’ll be checking out the desserts.
