First of all, thank you so much for all the messages of condolences following our father’s untimely death last week. Every word of comfort or encouragement has meant the world to us.
It’s hard to do a check-in on a week that is one big sad blur but I can definitely confess that both Jeanne and I have strayed off the LCHF path a bit over the last 6 days. Comfort and convenience were the order of the day initially so not-so-healthy carbs made their way onto our plates from time to time. As time has passed however, we’ve come back to our LCHF ways knowing that looking after ourselves physically is important as we go into a long and difficult emotional season.
Both of us feel like we’ve added a bit more padding which may well be true given our brief liaison with refined carbs recently, but we’re understandably not too bothered about it. It may also be partly psychological – we’ll have to wait and see what comes up on our next BIA and weight test.
I trust you’re all well out there – it’s 20h27 in Cape Town South Africa, my children are asleep, my husband is out, and I am shattered. Going to read for a few mins and then grab some much needed sleep.
