Yep! I fell off the horse and have been off the horse for about a month. Having depression and other illnesses hasn’t helped. Here’s some T.M.I. (and I apologize for it, but it’s critical to my Keto journey). I have just gotten rid of a terrible three year yeast infection that was caused by my ragingly high blood sugars (Type 2 diabetic since 2008) and was feeling sooooooo good on Keto. My 51st birthday was on June 18 and I had ice cream and pizza and…not keto-friendly foods (“Hey, it’s my birthday and I’m celebrating!”)…
Anyway, I am sitting here typing this and itching, itching, itching with the return of the wretched yeast infection. I’m drinking a large bottle of Kombucha, hoping it will help…I’m really depressed and full of self-doubt and not a little bit of self-hatred…but the thing is, I KNOW BETTER! I know that eating non-Keto food is NOT a celebration, but a disaster. WHY on Earth did I allow my old “tapes” to play and convince myself that a week or two of pizza and ice cream and cookies would be just fine?
Tomorrow is my wife’s birthday. We plan to go to a nice restaurant and she wants cake and ice cream afterwards. SHE can have some. I plan on getting meat, meat, meat, and some steamed veggies. In the meantime, anyone who prays, please pray for this maddening itch to depart!
I’m off now to have a pork chop or two.
