Rollercoaster Weather Makes Allergies Activate

For some reason, I had low energy this morning until after my low carb breakfast of Cheddar cheese and summer sausage. Then by the time I left the house and made my way to Claudette’s, it had picked up some. Then the sneezing started. I told myself it was because of all the hair leftover from Paco (her long haired chihuahua), yet as the day wore on and the wind picked up, I had to reluctantly admit it’s probably this crazy weather that has activated my allergies again. Weird, since I’ve been taking allergy meds daily for almost two months now. The high today was 55 and tomorrow morning it will be 28, then by the weekend it will be into the 70’s!!

As soon as I get back into ketosis, I stay cold. It’s 54 outside, 71 inside, and I’m sitting on the couch wrapped in a blanket, my eyes feeling tired…admittedly, there’s a fan on and I’m sitting on the part of the couch that is close to it, but I should not feel this cold. I’m fully dressed! I think it doesn’t take that much for me to get back into ketosis. I had my small breakfast along with my bulletproof coffee, and then I tried the new pepperoni pizza from Real Good with the cauliflower crust (if you saw my blog post today I did a review) and I will have a chicken thigh, salad, and some beans for dinner. I know, beans aren’t Keto, but that’s what we had, and I haven’t had much to eat today, so I will be ok.

I am trying to get back on track since I’ve been giving in to comfort this past couple of months. Like the crazy weather, my diet has been on a crazy rollercoaster as well. Still and all, I only gained about 9 lbs, but that even shows on my small frame. (I’m 4’9” for those who don’t know me) and I even had to go buy new pants, a size up mind you. 😡 I just have not had the willpower I normally do, but as things slowly get back to normal, I’m hoping to get control of myself again.

Well, I got off the subject for a second there, but let me just say I’m glad I don’t live in the Midwest right now! Several degrees below 0 is unthinkable for this Texas girl! I guess I’d rather deal with allergies!
