At the moment my days routinely start at 5am. This is after a broken nights sleep feeding the baby, and often dealing with the girls night time antics too. I am then on my feet solidly for at least two hours getting things prepped for the day. After packing 4yo off to school, I usually take the little ones out somewere. Then when it’s school pick up time we come home, and I spend another couple of hours in the kitchen prepping food. This is all interspersed with breastfeeding, blogging, and dealing with post-ill stroppy kids. Sounds like a recipe for disaster right?
Actually not – I am full of energy! I will write a more detailed post another time, but cutting out all grains, starches and refined sugars has been a revelation to my well being. I am loving my new found clear-headed-ness. My brain is buzzing and overflowing with so many ideas, I can hardly write them down quick enough to capture.
I would urge anybody who is feeling the slump to give up refined sugars and processed carbs for one month. You might even be surprised and want to do it longer term 🙂
Seems fitting to make my word of the week: Energetic. What’s yours?
