Sickness and setbacks

I have been sick since yesterday. First what started out as a cold turned into a full-fledged stomach bug/virus. I ended up needing soup, craving Top Ramen (of all things), so I had that for dinner with tuna fish sandwiches. Don’t judge me, that’s what we had growing up. What I call “poor food”. I haven’t eaten ramen in over 3 years…and haven’t craved it until last night. I don’t eat bread anymore, so this was very strange, but my stomach needed something less heavy and being sick, I just had to do what I needed to do.

These setbacks happen as soon as I start low-carbing and I feel let down, as if I am letting myself down, but when it comes to something like this, you simply cannot avoid it. Then I started wondering if the virus I thought I had was actually a flu/bug/virus, or rather, the Keto Flu I had made mention of in my last blog. Whatever it is, it has kicked my butt. That and old man winter…the two combined are dragging me down. I just want to sleep all day, but be it as I have rent and bills to pay, I cannot do that.

Here’s to better health…hopefully soon…

  1. Hi Jen, get healthy and get your energy back, then tackle it. It does sound like the keto flu. Get better soon!


    • I am still sick and I am thinking it’s Keto Flu and this crud going around. I am going for massage therapy today and while I KNOW it is going to hurt (I have a digger for a LMT, but I love that), I hope it will drain some of the nasty out.

  2. Best of luck, Jen. Sounds like it may be more than a Keto flu. Hope you feel better soon!
