week 5 making progress!

Finally making some progress in cutting down the sugar intake… just the 5 this week, but that’s including 2 days where I had to disrupt my sleeping pattern and then get up early, so I”m happy with that.

Have made the move to dark chocolate, that has to help… and tea I’m now a 1/2 a tsp man (down from 2) so I think I can say the trend is going the right way!

Reiters has declined a bit, knee still gives me grief; Have to wait for a specialist appt (4-6 weeks) to try and figure out the triggers. (What if its a lack of sugar? that’d be hilarious!)

week 4

So after shocking myself with the sheer size of sugar in a week… i managed to cut down to…. erm… 6 last week

3 energy drinks, a rockstar (76g in this badboy!) and 2 rio types. Not too bad.

In other news, i’ve finished the course of steroids for my stupid reiters… its almost back to full strength, so I’m going to stay clear of exercise till its 100%.
