My mood has really stabilised after the vortex of sugar withdrawal. I have more patience with the children and I am just happier.
My sleep is suffering still, waking and insomnia are a problem.
My joint pain is so much better. The joints are still horribly tender to touch, but basic movement is now fine, which is mountains better than where I was at the beginning (god, even getting up off the sofa was a total nightmare at the end of the day).
So, changes I’ve successfully made so far:
- Cutting out sugar
- Restarting exercise
- Eating a bit more home cooked food and a few less takeaways
- Supplement regime to help my arthritis
Changes I need to focus on, in addition to continuing the above:
- Better quality sleep
- Some strength exercises
- Cutting down the alcohol
Going to try not drinking Mon-Thu. Starts tomorrow.
