60 day challenge : a little time out

Call off the search party!  I’m no longer missing in action.  I know it’s been a while since my last post but I have very good reason.  Let’s just say that the last 2 weeks have been a combination of incredible highs and significant lows. 

The high points?  Attending my first paid gig as a food stylist and photographer.  This was such a wonderful opportunity and one that I’ll talk about more at a later date.  The editing and writing work has taken me away from my own blog a little, but it’s been a lot of fun and a great experience and I’m looking forward to continuing this work in the future (hopefully!).

The low points?  For starters my husband and I were wiped out with a violent gastro virus.  It has taken nearly 2 weeks for us to get back to normal and face the sight of food again.  Needless to say the thought of a Paleo diet of eggs, beef and chicken was the last thing I could stomach.  I pretty much lived on fresh air, vegemite on toast and Hydralite for more than a week.  Then a few days later was another low point when I tripped on some stairs in the city and completely mangled my ankle.  When I say mangled I mean a black, bruised, twisted foot that swelled up to twice it’s size.  Luckily I didn’t fracture any bones and with a few trips to the Physio I’ll be back to normal in no time.  Not fun at all though.

The low points have forced me to slow down and take a wee break these last 2 weeks but I finally feel like I’m ready to get back to business.

60 day challenge resumes

After my carb reload these last 2 weeks my Paleo challenge took a little time out.  So I’ve decided that I’m just going to pick up where I left off and pretend like the last 2 weeks didn’t happen.  Not in a negative, self-loathing kind of way but rather a ‘let’s keep moving forward’ kind of way.  So my next update will be my 42 day recap and then I’ll extend the challenge for an additional 2 weeks at the end.  Sound fair?

Now I have some serious Paleo meal planning to organise…

    I am so pleased to see a new post. That is terrible news about being unwell and your ankle. I am pleased you are back on track.

    Congratulations on your work. That is what dreams are made of but in your case just plain hard work. Where you find the energy with two young boys and this blog I will never know. I take my hat off to you.

    Thanks Jodie. It’s all a juggling act and sometimes I do it well and other times not so much!
