Mailing list fail.

Hi everyone, hope you’re having a productive day!
I got an email from MailChimp who I had been using to run my mailing list saying they had de-activated my account, followed by a short string of reasons why they couldn’t re-activate it, so I’ll be resolving that this week most likely with a new company, I don’t think I’ll loose anyone in the transition, as had downloaded an upto date list, but if you don’y hear from me via email over the weekend, please email at and I’ll make sure you’re on the list!

Have a great day!

Sugar free

So I’ve been following a sugar and indeed largely ‘carb’ free diet for about three weeks now. A ‘ketogenic’ diet. And following it I have been. No slips (that I’m aware of) so far. Basically keeping total carb (inc sugar) intake under 20g per day. Lots of fat. Some protein.
Been listening alot to the ‘2ketodudes’ and ‘ketofor ormies’ pod casts to help me out. Have a listen!
I’ve also got to thank regular inspiration Jack black of Mindstore for posting about the benefits he’s found through it on his facebook page, thats what helped me decide to actually do it.

At the moment my trousers are deffo looser than they were, I’m mot getting hungry and I’m sleeping better.
Im also missing my Costa mocha and any fun food. Where fun = bread.
In recent years I thought I was pretty free from any kind of emotional eating. Turns out I was not!
Plenty of sugar cravings (although it subsides quickly) and feelings of dissatisfsction (which sticks around a little longer) though.

I’ve planned to do it for 2 months before I weigh myself.
Will up date any spectacular results here.



Every time we’re offered an opportunity, however attractive it is or isn’t, we should look to see how it fits in with our priorities.
We could also re-examine all of our current activities under the microscope of our priorities and goals / values.

So think about what your goals are, think about your internal values.

Now look at all the stuff you regularly.
Write it out.

Are there anythings you could stop doing to make room, and energy, for things you REALLY want to do?

Our priorities certainly change over time. Our values can also change,  but sometimes we dont change are activities to match. Periodic examination of activities is really useful.
