Step 2: Day 4 – Cambridge Weight Loss – Worst Meal So Far

Step 2: Day 4 – Cambridge Weight Loss – Worst Meal So Far

Woke up with a hangover-style headache and a shrivelled tongue, not to mention a few dashes to the loo.
Playing havoc with my digestion.
Felt much better after an ibuprofen, pint of water and a bucket of black, caffeine coffee.
Actually a great day, felt ‘on it’ and determined. Allowed myself to be distracted by other thoughts than food.
Took my chocolate chew bar with me to a cafe to eat whilst the kids chowed down on their cookies and cakes.
Did a ketone stick test and the colour is still ‘nude’ so not sure if I can expect worse days while my body goes into ketosis or not. Here’s hoping not!
Breakfast
1pm – toffee and walnut shake – lovely, thick and tasty.
Lunch
4pm – chocolate chew bar – perfect for distracting me from all the goodies my kids were consuming!
Snack
7:40pm – chicken tikka style rice – sweet Jesus, this stuff is AWFUL. Like leftovers from someone curry, water and curry powder. YUK! Never again!
Tea 
9:45pm – five spice chicken and broccoli. Eating the same meals two in a row to save cooking each night.

Water 3ls, black coffee x3, slurp of Diet Coke 😉
Overall a good day, felt a little cheated by the disgusting chicken tikka style, chickenless, curry water!

Feeling awful today.

Headache and nausea, and all mixed in with a job interview – not a good day.

Had a bucket of water, ibuprofen and a sleep, and felt a million times better.

Got my Ketone sticks today, they show I’m not yet in Ketosis, but I’ve definitely got the dreaded ‘keto flu’ that’s for sure!

Breakfast 12:00

Peanut crunch bar

A bitter undertaste but not bad.

Lunch 3:30pm

Spag bol 

My first CWP ‘proper food’ product (i.e. Not a shake, bar or soup). Exploded in the microwave. Very tasty, quite sweet, felt full after it. Definitely will order more of these!

Snack

Chocolate orange shake 

Yum!

Tea

8:45pm

Chicken and five spices and broccoli 

Yum!

2.5l water, Black coffee

So here I am. I’ve been desperate to lose the flubber in good time for my summer holiday at the beginning of August. No matter how many mathematical equations I did I just couldn’t see myself losing 2.5 stone in the 16 weeks I have left, and so I did some resea
rch on the Cambridge Weight Plan and decided to just go for it.

It sounds harsh, tough going, but the one repetitive theme I found during my research was that IT WORKS!

I’ve opted to go to Step  rather than Sole Source, as I’m tad inclined to give up and eat everything if I get too hungry. So I thought I’d hedge my bets and, with the advice of my counsellor, go to step 2 and see how things pan out.

A good first day, although I’m all too aware that my body is still using the carbs from yesterday to keep functioning, so I won’t be at my full pelt ’empty’ yet. I’ve a sneaking suspicion that tomorrow will be a little more difficult! Eek.
