Food - success. Mostly. Stuck to the letter of my new rules but bent the meaning a bit by eating some dried fruit. On Saturday night we got a takeaway kebab - I had a mixed lamb and chicken shish, no pitta and I made my own salad to accompany it, along with one of my salad dressings instead of the shop sauce. And no chips, even though M did order some.
Booze - success. I didn't find it as difficult as I thought even though having something (not a lot) at the weekend had become pretty much a habit.
Exercise - successful I'd say. I walked about 5 miles on Saturday, no training to give my back another day. Sunday was a rest day so I only walked a couple of miles. This morning I was back on the climber and my back felt fine.
I feel a lot more in control at the moment. My digestive system is definitely happier and calmer doing this and so is my mood. I'm not really sleeping any better and I haven't weighed myself in over a week so I don't know how bad things got or if they're getting better. Except in the ways listed above. Keep on keeping on I guess...
