Sleep is the magic ingredient. I’ve been running around like a headless chicken, trying to squeeze in full-time hours, children’s school runs and christmas preparations for the in-laws.
I’ve been getting on average 5 hours of sleep a night and yesterday had the first craving in weeks. I heard my husband open a can of coke zero and my brain just went – BEER! Beer will help me! Beer will make me feel better.
Went to bed early. This morning I feel like a new woman!
I need to find a way especially in these early months to avoid ‘overwhelm’ one of the biggest causes of relapse.
That means more sleep and prioritising the $@£^$% out of my to do lists!
