Hey day 3 of this detox and feeling good. Yesterday I think I felt better, today I’ve had headaches, maybe just dehydration. I haven’t drank as much as the last 2 days as its making my teeth gritty, all the sugar in the maple syrup. Perhaps I’ll carry a tooth brush around haha. But hunger wise not too bad. I’m surprised at my will power, stayed at the boyfriends house last night and avoided veggie burgers ice cream and popcorn which are all up there as fav food but I think seeing results on 2 days in is such a sure sign I’m doing my body some good.
I ordered some new batteries for my scales so I’m pretty excited to see if I’ve lost any weight. Before this I was an avid gym goer and ate a pretty well balanced veggie diet so has always been hard to loose any further weight as I’ve never been big. but I’m doing this just to get back to normality as I haven’t felt right since getting back from holiday. Maybe too much alcohol!
Normal Stats before Cleanse:
I’ll post with updates stats tonight is there has been any change :) For anyone else on the cleanse stay strong as you WILL benefit! x
Haven’t posted in a long while. I’m trialing the lemonade diet also known as the master cleanse which is what I would call a juice fast or something along those lines. You are meant to do it for a minimum of 10 days but as my BMI is already on the lower end of the spectrum I’m only trialing it for 5. My last meal was Monday at 1PM. Since, I have been drinking the detox lemonade which I’ll put the recipe to below.
I feel strangely alert and have only felt hungry once. A lot of people who have reviewed the diet say that after the first few days of feeling hungry tired lethargic they have hardly ever felt hungry again. The mixture is enough to sustain your body’s functions, I suppose its the sugar. Although yesterday I did get the shakes around 12 hours in but I feel a strange wave of clarity this morning. I’m sure lunch and dinner will be a bit tough but this feeling has made yesterday worth it. Especially with fresh fruit around all I wanted to do was ram it in my face! But I’m in much need of a cleanse after holiday. I will post before and after pics on Monday and any weight change also.
Little valentines trip to London with some friends last night. We went to see a band I’d heard good things about and I was’t let down! They are called Pure Love, we saw them at a venue called xoyo, they were great. Had a really good time, and I’ve woke up with 0 hangover. So I’m pretty pleased. they seem to engage the audience better then most bands I’ve seen. I really enjoy little intimate venues because there is more involvement and interaction. But on the downside it also means its easier to bump into your ex fondling with a chubby downgrade. I don’t mind, Win some you loose some.
I bought some attachments for my dremel drill which I’m hoping will make drilling intricate stuff a little bit easier! And got a surf trip planned with one of my good friends, to Devon again in 2 weeks and I can’t wait to get something good!!
Finally if anyone is going to the brighton tattoo convention hit me up! My friends getting tattooed by some one from family business so I’ll be snapping his pain face haha. Have a good weekend everyone. KMG XO
Sunday was shocking, I slept a minimal 1 hour 45 mins sat night due to tripping my face on a concoction of substances. And then went out surfing Sunday morning with my old man again. He (sensibly) didn’t go in this time around, he spotted for me though as it was a little choppy and broken, kind of dangerous if you don’t keep an eye on the waves. Was colder then the day before and it got to my bones quicker, I tired easier but great fun none the less.
I went to this new gym I joined too. It’s pretty awesome, there’s so many locations, one right next to where I work or one in my home town not even a 5 min drive away. So I think/ hope I’ll find time to go regularly as I’d like to tone up a fair amount and just improve my upper body strength again for surfing this year.
To close this post I’d like to mention how distance really is a lil bitch! But I’m really looking forward to summer.
Have a good week KMG X
I persuaded my dad to get on a board this weekend. He use to windsurf back in the day at a location I now am very fond of and find it to be some what a home away from home. I know the town like the back of my hand.
Anyway, we went to Devon on Saturday, he hired a long-board and the thickest, biggest wet suit available, some boots and a hood. He looked ridiculous and I wish I’d got some more photos of him! It was a sensible choice though. At a bone chilling 2 degrees the water temp wasn’t a lot better. Close to freezing.
We came back Sat evening and I headed out in London with friends to celebrate selling a company I co-owned & set up in college, I kind of let it run its course for a couple years and it built revenue. We had some interest and it sold for a healthy amount. I’m putting the money into ISA’s. And I guess that can be my pension or travel funds, or a deposit for a house.
The effects of this night shattered a good surf session the next morning…Read Sunday
Shoot day. Today I’m doing make up for a jewellery company called Adourn. On the train to London now. I can’t believe how heavy my kit is! I’ve stocked up on mac body and face foundations as I think they’re the most diverse and useful bit of make up generally speaking. Also I’m using mac studio fix fluid which are my absolute favorite foundation.
I’m going to have to dash to Mac Pro in soho to get a brush belt before the shoot as the one I ordered never turned up. I hate working with out an apron. Like a kangaroo. Keep all your stuff in your pouch. Ok - here goes nothing. Have a good day lovelies x
Does anyone want 2 Tickets to the opening round of red bull pro nationals in cornwall?
Sounds terrible but indirectly I’ve been surrounded by death this past week. Although its a sad matter, balance will be restored. One door closes another opens. I’m a great believer in balance and I don’t think things would function in such a forward momentum if good and bad were not equal. And I think good and bad would cease to exist with out the other.
As well as this, I’d like to believe there is some sense to reincarnation. I don’t by any means believe you die as a human and come back as a butterfly or anything! I just think and hope that there is another realm of consciousness after death. Even if there’s not it helps me stay peaceful.
I’m starting to think my best mate moving to New York for a year has got the complete right idea. I’m going aus in nov for supposedly a month or two but if its all it cracks up to be I may escape for a lifetime. Things here are getting too routine. Maybe it’s the restrictive weather or not being able to surf but I’m sick of the concrete jungle. I need to be at the coast. I need my friends closer. On a positive I’m heading for a drink with my work lot tomorrow evening and I can’t wait they’re such a cool bunch of people, definitely makes Mondays easier! Have a good week everyone x
