This past week hasn’t been a great one for me. Super emotional with some personal stuff, major sleep depravation and the on Wednesday night I some how decided I’d ‘earned’ a treat. So I took myself off to KFC.
Just some of they’re yummy chicken I decided. Next thing I know they’ve given me free chips, and some sweet and sour sauce. Don’t mind if I do I thought… I’ve been doing so well I’ve ‘earned it’.
Next morning instead of my usual bacon and scrambled eggs with butter I’ve gone to McDonalds and order a breaky wrap with BBQ sauce and a hash brown. Oh, and a raspberry macaroon for the road!
I know what your thinking… WHY???
At the time I honestly had convinced myself it was fine, just a treat. Problem is it’s a slippery slope.
After breakfast I decided that was absolutely ridiculous behaviour and I’ve solidly locked back in to LCHF.
I’ve been eating well since however between Friday morning and now (Sunday morning) I have been totally kicked in the head with a flu.
I haven’t been sick all year since starting LCHF however just those 2 ‘bad’ choices were enough to leave me bed ridden for 2 days and possibly 1 or 2 more to come.
• Migraine Headache
• Swollen/Sore Throat
• Photo Sensitivity
• Mouth Ulcers
• Major Joint & Muscle Pain
• Dehydration and Vomiting
So, I’ve learned my lesson and hopefully you can learn from my mistake too.
It’s not a treat to eat junk and get sick!
