Thought I'd share a side effect of my journey here.
Due to knocking back my daily calorie intake I have had to seriously curtail my volume of alcohol intake. The upside of that is that I have slept soundly now (except for a few lapse days) almost every single night of the 5 weeks that I've been doing this.
To put it into perspective, that is probably more good nights than the last 15 years in total. It wasn't just alcohol as I used to have a high pressured job (that's changed as I'm now a self-employed sparky) but alcohol was the last remaining obstacle.
I've been up a couple of hours, have cleared most of my paper work, walked and fed the dogs and now to continue decorating. Don't wonder about the time of day, as I've always woken up early but without the good sleep in between.
Have a great day everyone and power to your fork hand
