As promised today is the first of my Friday SureSlim update since agreeing to review the program. Only I really don’t have much to report. My blood test results finally arrived at SureSlim yesterday and I was called and asked to check in with my GP – as there was an abnormality with the thyroid test. Yay me. They tell me it doesn’t appear to be anything to panic about – but it needs to be checked out before I can begin the program. I guess this is a good thing. I good recommendation for the program that they truly do seek doctors advice and look after your health. And if there is something wrong with my thyroid – it’s better to know now. So, I’m all booked in to see my friendly GP next week and hopefully will start the program soon after that.
In the meantime I’ve just been trying to eat a healthy low-GI diet. And guess what - it feels great. I’m amazed how much more even my energy levels feel and how much I’m enjoying the taste of real unprocessed healthy food. Yummo. My head feels clearer and I’ve lost the brain fuzz that usually follows me around like a shadow. Good. This is all good news. So until next week – that’s all I have to say about that.
And in other news, right now I’m experience the bizarre phenomenon known as Child Free Time. Yes you heard right – the girls are all staying at their Granny’s and Mr Pink and I are rattling around our unusually silent and still house. Today I’ve gardened, watched day time TV and sat without a flicker of guilt in front of the computer screen. (Oh and ignored any and all housework!) This Child Free Time thing happens for a night or two every school holidays and each time it takes me a few hours to relax. Despite longing for the silence most of the time it freaks me out to begin with. It feels a little empty and uncomfortable. (Nothing like our normal existence). But then I come to my senses and embrace the short burst of silence in the noisy parental marathon. I sit down and feel dizzy with happiness that I can finish a chapter of a book uninterrupted or watch a movie of my own choice. As much as I love them it’s blissful to have a little break and hear myself think again. Blissful.
