Ebony's journey to better health: Week 2

Ebony's journey to better health: Week 2

Ebony is a 39-year-old self-employed small business owner and mother to two boys. She creates and sells gifts, cards, prints, keepsakes, and homeware through her small business, Dotty Black.
We recommend reading about Ebony's first week to learn more about why she's taking part in this journey with us! Below, she’s shared her thoughts during week two of her nutrition plan:

I can’t believe how good I’m feeling!

In general, I’ve felt for so long like there is a heavy cloud over me, especially in my lungs. It’s feeling so much better, I can’t even feel it anymore. I had gotten so used to the feeling, that I forgot what it felt like to feel normal.
The way I feel right now, I even think my physical exercise is a possibility soon. I used to love boot camp, but have felt enormous fear about returning since I’ve struggled with basic fitness or taking the stairs too quick etc.
I’ve noticed I've also lost 4lb, that in itself is making me feel like I have more energy!
I've tried switching to fruit teas this week and surprised myself as I really like them.
The zinc lozenges I think have been making my tongue sore. I only think this is down to the fact they take nearly an hour to dissolve fully. They leave white chalky bits in my mouth, so I've started rinsing my mouth out afterwards and this has helped.
I honestly can’t believe how good I’m feeling only 2 weeks in!
