Come on down!!!

uuuurgh!!! Caffeine comedown is a biiiiitch.

I am trying to get off caffeine and reduce my intake of refined sugars etc, basically trying to go low GI as much as possible, with the exception of the occasional trip out I think. Apparently this will help me lose weight because my thyroid is futzed and despite thyroid meds, I am still fat and tired with crap hair, nails and skin.

I also realised just after Christmas that I was going through a litre to a litre and a half of Pepsi Max per day. her, at least it was sugar free!!! I've been trying to get myself down, and today is my first day with nothing.

I'm following advice from a thyroid diet book, and it's soooo hard.

my head is painful, i feel tired and i am craving fat, refined carbs and sugar. If someone could give me a jam doughnut where the jam is actually that concentrated syrup you get for coke machines, I would probably be in hog's heaven.

Speaking of hogs, I managed to get a massive roast dinner for the three of us out of a pork hock yesterday, and still have enough left over fr another dinner too. My portion was trimmed of all fat and tiny, served with a mound of veg, some slightly softened apple chunks and a couple of slices of potato.

I am unsure whether or not this is the comedown from refined carbs, sugar in general, caffeine or aspartame but I.... urgh.

Oh well, at least my kitchen is clean. I scrubbed and scrubbed today to get my mind of everything else.

My embroidery machine is kaput I think. I thought I'd fixed it, but no. the computer screen still wont recognise clicks in the bottom third, and the stitches are still misaligned. humpf. Can't afford to get it fixed anywhere I've had quotes from either :(

Well, that's all from my depressing mind today. hopefully  I'll be less depressing next time.
