Elimination - Day 4

I woke up without the alarm and feeling completely rested. There was no sign of the headache and I thought: Phew. That's over. Nuh-uh. On my drive to work, it resurfaced, and by the time I got to my desk it was bad enough to require some pharmaceutical assistance.

The hunger has definitely subsided; thank goodness for small mercies. Breakfast was fish and sweet potato, lunch leftover roast lamb and veg, a pear was enough for my afternoon snack, and I cooked up some more lamb and veg for dinner.

I also had a nasty case of DOMS in my glutes, traps, rear delts and some other muscles down the middle of my back (I never was good at anatomy). The result of a tough workout? Nope - it was all from my IKEA shopping and assembly. Ha!

Weight's still dropping, no doubt due to the low calorie consumption. I'm not trying to under-eat, I just: a) can't be bothered cooking; and b) get very sick of the same old thing all the time. I really do love variety in my meals.

One thing that I'm supremely grateful for is the deep and satisfying sleep I'm getting. That's been the case since I decaffed myself. And I thought I didn't have a problem with caffeine.... I can't remember the last time I felt like this - waking in the morning feeling rested, or getting through a boring afternoon at work without struggling to keep my eyes open. The difference is amazing (and some of the dreams have been hilarious).

I really do feel like I've been visited by the sleep fairy.
