Easter came pretty quickly this year but it’s also earlier than usual, so that’s why it feels like 2016 is whizzing by already.
My Bachelorette Parties x2, my wedding and honeymoon meant that I wasn’t exactly 100% strict with my LCHF and sugar free lifestyle.
I have been feeling terrible! I’ve been sick with terrible sinus and a chest infection (something I haven’t been in 2 years), bloated and podgy, inflamed, lethargic and full of migraine headaches again. I’ve been desperate to get back into my lifestyle that just makes me feel so energised and healthy. Of course all the excuses came back and all the cravings. Once I had sugar in my body; I just wanted more and more of it even though it was making me feel awful. There is never going to be a good time to start – hello, it’s Easter – with Easter eggs galore. It will always be someones birthday or some celebration – some excuse.
I’m back to my calendar and gold stars situation and am proud to say that I didn’t have one easter egg. Even I’m a little shocked! Haha!
I choose to feel healthy and energised and I know that when I eat the wrong food it makes me feel terrible – it also creates a vicious cycle and if I’m honest with you, but more importantly myself, I have struggled to get back into eating the way that makes me feel good. It’s the damn sugar – it really is the devil and haves you craving all the wrong things!
It feels good and victorious to have gotten through Easter!
Greek Easter is only being celebrated in 4 weeks time, but it was lovely to celebrate my Easter with Sox and his family. We did a Sunday Braai of:
Home made chicken kebabsRoasted vegetablesA green Greek salad and freshly made tzatsikiTo finish off the meal, we sliced up a dessert made by my mom in law. A sugar free, low carb roulade – using xylitol, egg and cacao and cream. I’ll have to get the recipe and share it with you.If any of you reading lead a sugar free lifestyle, how do you cope with Easter? I’d love to know!
