I keep a diary with everything I eat, exercise I do, sleep, skin quality, sunlight, amount of water, etc written down as a record. I also write down thought and feelings which i find really useful. I like to write on here as well though, as it's great to have interaction with other people, so please drop me a comment if you're also doing the whole 30 or just to say hi!
If I can help it I want to cut the nuts down (even though it was only a handful I didn't feel too great after eating them) I find it quite hard to find easy things to snack on though. I also wish that we had other fruit in the house other than bananas as I felt really peckish in the evening. I've come home from university for a couple of days as I have an appointment with my kinesiologist so i'm having to choose my food from what my mum has bought but once i'm back at uni it's a lot easier.
It a really strange observation but my forehead look swollen. I know you're probably thinking ??? but I had it on holiday during the summer. I put it down to the heat but I wasn't being strict with my diet whilst on holiday (no gluten but plenty of dairy and nuts during the day) so I think it may be an omega 6 rise in my body. or a dairy overload. So i'm obviously eager to see that go away. I've doubled my dose from 1 teaspoon of fish oil to 1 tablespoon until my skin improves and this wierd forehead bloating goes.
Looking forward to tomorrow! I've got my kinesiologist appointment in the morning and then may do a little shopping. I need to hand my CV into the local shops as i'm looking for a job during the christmas holidays. Then in the afternoon i'm visiting my old secondary school to talk to the current fine art class to show them my portfolio for my university interview. I'll probs have scrambled eggs again in the morning as they were good, then lunch when I come back from the shops and dinner in the evening. I might treat myself to a black americano at Costa coffee (and i'll put my own coconut milk in it) as i'll have a bit of wait.
Good night everyone Please leave messages!
