Why hai there!
Did you have a nice new year? I am back to the work grind but my body is not happy about it, what with the snooze tastic, late night filled Christmas and New Year break. Plus I am ill! Feeling so weak it’s unreal, but you gotta do what you gotta do. I had a bit of a rest from blogging and am not more or less back on it!
So, Mr C has been a diamond and has been helping out with blog sale photos (I estimate 700 items or so in the final sale so it’s the biggest ever), I have been working on the shop, and trying to make 2012 an organised year!
Upcoming Reviews…well boy do I have a lot of stuff to try out. Have the Revlon Lip Butters to review, some seriously pink lips from MAC, my sale make up hauls, the Tom Ford bronze/highlight compact, Mr C’s Armani haulage for me and loads of Korean make up! I can’t get close to a camera at the moment because Mr C has hijacked it all.
I also started a new diet – based on this book called the 17day diet. In a nutshell…
It’s a LOW CARB diet. There are loads of smaller rules and things but the stuff I have been paying attention to are:
8 glasses of water (er, make it 4)
Lots of Green Tea
Meat (low fat) and Fish is allowed freely
Lots of vegetables are allowed freely (not starchy ones like Potatoes)
Fruit is allowed before 2pm
4 Cups of coffee is allowed
Avoid all sugar
Do 17 minutes exercise a day
I admit, I have been only doing this for 2 days and I have got the mother of all head pains. I have taken lots of paracetemol and still it hurts. I am craving sugar so much that I took extra cough syrup because it’s sweet.
On the upside, to me it’s still easier than Dukan because you can have fruit, and vegetables. Also you can lose up to 15lbs in thefirst 17 days.
So far, apart from the pain of detoxing, I am finding it irritatingly hard to find carb free lunches cos even salads tend to have noodles or potatoes or pasta chucked into them (I always buy my lunch – I hate tupperware, but it looks like I might have to do packed lunches) and too much meat makes me feel queasy. So extra veg it is.
I’ll let you know in 17 days time how much weight I lose. Would be fab to get into shape in 2012!
