it's going well...

I've been trying to sort my sleep pattern out a bit lately. After being ill so many times recently I could have slept not only for England, but Europe, and in fact the entire universe. When I get up I am still totally exhausted, even after more sleep than I should need. Something is obviously working, as it is getting easier to get up in the morning. I have increased my fruit and veg intake, and also started eating less 'white' foods. Rice is now brown wholegrain rice (tesco do a great one that still tastes like white rice), as white rice is stripped of every single thing that is good for you. So effectively it is an empty food. Bread is now brown too, and I have even bought wholemeal pasta! Not tried it yet (its years since I have tried it) but I think I will mix it up with white to start with! Hey- it's a step in the right direction!
I have been reading one of Gillian McKeith's books I am not dieting as such, but trying to be more aware of what I am putting into my body. Don't get me wrong- I am not following the plan in this book as such, just making small changes for the better. Like the rice thing- what is the point of eating it if my body gets absolutely nothing from it? Particularly when I can eat rice that tastes pretty much the same but is packed full of vitamin B!
Whether I am feeling better because of the food changes, or something else I don't know but I am gonna keep on! It's all good!


A huge toot and a honk for Suzanne and Caz for being selected to go through to the next round in MM Idol So deserved girlies! (had to pimp your bush lol)


So many things to photograph right now, and so little time- so will leave you with a recent layout that I actually love (very rare)

Hello lil lovely, glad your feeling better. Wholemeal rice and pasta is just lush, once you get used to it. The pasta tastes same as white to me, and the rice has a lovely nutty/chewy texture, aids slow mastication and better digestion. Well done to you, you'll be AWAKE for Europe before long, lol.
