Finally back

Finally back! Yippee

Having treatment the next 3 months for ovarian cysts, apparently very common in 20-25year olds, usually heal on their own within 3-6 months. Have been hitting the tramadol for the pain, very strong stuff, but has taken the edge off it for sure.

Feeling a lot better finally, so back to normal. Still taking it easy, so will see how I go this week work wise.

Continuing with liquid diet, MC starting from today; mainly to keep the pain under control, stay headache free plus with the expense of living here right now I don't have much choice but to fast! I enjoy the taste so more than happy to give it a go!

Using raw honey, lemon and cayenne pepper-- purest water I can buy to mix. Drinking it warm mainly. Also ordered a batch of laxative tea-- see which is mildest to use. Will give that a go tomorrow!!

Got Lax Tea,german brand-- a little yellow box(had it before, a bit brutal!)
Dr Stuarts Lax Tea

Trust any Dr Stuarts products, so hopefully that will work a charm!

Anyway hope to cleanse for a few weeks then work on creating some speedy, simple, stunning and 8-1-1 friendly meal and recipe ideas. So keep your eyes peeled post fast!

Eat to Live...

Rather than live to eat.

Guess that has been my mantra lately. Fasting has improved my headaches so much, I am continuing in this way, its working and feels more than comfortable.

So many rawbies spend too much time obsessing about what food to eat..what not to eat..what percentages.. bla bla bla..LIFE is too short for weighing out your greens..get out there and enjoy LIFE!!

Forget stressing, get out there enjoy yourself..listen to your body.

Training 3 times a day at the moment as a minimum, getting some good results and feel this schedule fits in nicely..keeps me feeling happy ..also shifting up what I do stops any boredom! Making it fun..and enjoying a bit of outdoors training since its so hot.

Mainly drinking the following

Lemon juice
MC Drink
Fennel Infusion
Any other herbal/fruit sun tea

This means I have been able to stay painkiller free, I don't want to pumped full of codeine everyday! Doesn't make sense at all to me!

Preparing for a stressful peak at work towards the end of the month, this feels like the perfect way to prepare my body and mind to deal with the workload in the best way I can, without getting myself into a position where I end up burnt out. Aim to go in and come out of this years peak time HEALTHY and HAPPY!!

I have been a bit sporadic with blogging as I have been just enjoying life..and enjoying the sunny weather, isn't often we get weather in the high 20s here, so really it is a treat for us Brits!! Out come the knobbly knees and flip flops any sign of sun!!

Anyways.. just wanted to quick post!

Loving life, working out hard and enjoying the little pleasures in life!
