Easy Diet: Day 2
2 days down! 1 more day to go… After the first day, I managed to lose 1 kg! woo hoo! But the 2nd day proved to be harder than the first.

I had my first proper coffee in 2 years (Starbucks doesn’t really count). 1 tsp of Nescafe Gold and 2...
Easy Diet: Day 1
Day 1 completed! Verdict: Followed the diet exactly! Except for…ehem… instead of 1/2 a grapefruit I had ONE whole grapefruit. I also had a yoghurt for a mid-morning snack.

It may seem insignificant...
…but I finally got my period! After 11 months of giving birth and breastfeeding, I am now “normal” again. I am not sure if I should be happy looking forward to the tediousness of sanitary pads, bloatedness, oily and pimply face, Pms, etc. But at least now I am more of a woman. :) They say that your menses changes after giving birth. So we will see. I am curious to see what...
