Thank you, thank you, thank you! We hit 1,000 followers on Instagram.
It’s crazy to think at the start of my treatment journey in May of this year, I had 250 followers and now we have hit 1K! It’s a pleasure to have you all join me on my journey and enjoy following my story through the up’s and the down’s.
Thank you! Let’s keep growing in numbers- spreading our awareness and growing in strength ourselves.
I can also announce as many of you know I was struggling with all my stairs in my old house and I am now moving to a home which is more ‘disability’ friendly. Open plan, everything I need on one floor and easier for me to entertain people.
With struggling so much day to day it will be better for me to host friends and family whom can support me when needed.
I have a straight flight of stairs which means if needed a stair lift can be put in.
I love, love, love my beautiful town house. I really had put my stamp on it & it was my dream home.
But, it wasn’t right for me anymore.
And although I am struggling to come to terms with it all, I am lucky I have found a beautiful home that has been done up to a high standard, so it doesn’t need pulling apart and striping back to start from fresh- I don’t have the energy for that.
I can just add some Sophie sparkle to it.
I had hoped to have been in by now, but nothing is straight forward and there has been so much going on behind the scenes. Then me being in hospital too but now finally, finally we have completed and the house is mine.
I will slowly be moving in over the next few weeks.
It’s all go, it never stops!
Keep following the journey and spreading the Christmas love,
Feeling sluggish and rubbish when you have woken up? Get boosting up on bananas the more the better - they will help settle your stomach, boosting digestion, they are a mood enhancer, they will give you the energy you need and keep you full. Buy my book for banana receipe ideas.
Wake up every morning and ATLEAST have one glass of lemon water before doing anything else! Ideally try to drink a litre of water. The lemon wakes up your digestive system ready for the day and has great cleansing properties.
Check your dairy and meat intake - dairy can sit in your system for up to seven days unable to digest properly. Meaning other foods also get neglected and nurtients aren't absorbed properly and you feel extremely bloated. Go and smell your food bin, your stomach will be in that state. Rotting foods in your belly - hmm nice.
DO NOT FEAR CARBS - THEY ARE NOT THE ENEMY! CARB UP!!
Bananas, Rice, Potatoes, Leafy Greens, Corn, Beans, Lentils etc PACK THEM IN GO MAD.
NEVER COUNT CALORIES - NEVER RESTRICT!! These restriction 'starvation' diets who tell you to only eat 500 calories a day then have a treat day - where you binge out and eat WAY too much, is simply messing up your metabolism and on your binge days yours body stores all the fat meaning you gain weight because it knows it is going to go back into starvation mode and needs to hold onto every little thing it can. HELLO WEIGHT GAIN.
Life is too short not to live it to the full, making yourself happy.
