Less than 100 days

Saturday, May 10, 2014

I know itís been ages and ages and ages since I last posted anything and for that Iím sorry.

Itís less than 100 days now until I get married so preparations are starting to pick up pace. Weíve booked our bar, weíve booked a hog roast to feed our guests and weíve had some test shots done with our photographer.
Weíre very lucky to have a friend who is a wonderful photographer. Sheís not professional but her results are stunning. She even managed to make me look good!!

Iím also back to trying something new in an attempt to lose some weight and look awesome for the wedding. Iím just starting into the Paleo lifestyle by way of the Whole30 plan. Basically you can eat all the fruit, vegetable and meat you want but you cut out grains, legumes and dairy. So no bread, milk, beans, oats etc. not even any soy based products. I can have nice fermented and pickled things like sauerkraut though.
Iím literally only a couple of days in so at the moment it is a bit of a struggle especially with the caffeine withdrawal headaches. Those will only last another day or so though so Iím not worried.
What I am looking forward to is buying lots of weird and wonderful fruit and vegetables that I havenít had before. That, and different meats and fish that I havenít had or havenít had for a while. Now to try and convince Lucy to try some more new thingsÖ(although I think offal might be pushing it!)

Have a look at the original post here (there's a lovely picture to see) theshakeshaft.wordpress.

    I absolutely LOVE the picture,,BUT you might want to go to that site and edit the word "Shots". You used an "i" instead of an "o". Better there, than the wedding invitations!!!!

    Marriage - the biggest marathon of all! Congratulations - let us know how your diet goes. Monday I am starting the Virign Diet (by JJ Virgin) and the 21 day detox. Sounds very similar to what you are doing and Paleo - but I still can have my coffee!

    Oooh I have been paleoing and it is sensational! What I found is that I can have sheeps cheeses and yogurts, don't laugh, when there is no option sheeps stuff tastes great! I don't like goats milk etc so sheep is my alternative. And I make a delicious flaxseed loaf, grinding the seed in my coffee grinder, it is easy peasy, 20 minutes. If you are likeme you will have sensational results, so keep with it, it is well worthwhile.
An exciting time in your life, enjoy.

PS as for the detox headaches, meh! Take a pill, for heaven's sake, no need to suffer, we have technology for that!
