Goodness I completely forgot to tell you that Zoe is like a shark – she is developing two rows of teeth. The baby teeth in front that is very loose but she is too scared to allow us to pull it out and now the grown up teeth has started to grow out behind the baby teeth. I really do hope that the grown up teeth will move to the front once the baby teeth finally falls out on their own accord.
The LCHF thing is not really enforced at the moment. With all the upheaval at work and the stress of Comrades, I’ve fallen back into the rut of comforting eating. I’m scoffing down cookies, chocolate, cakes, chips and muffins. Mealtimes are still fine and I’m sticking to the high fat, no carbs regime there but the rest of the time is a disaster. Bad thing at the moment is that I’m so paranoid about germs that I actually throw my food away if somebody comes into my office and talk just close to the food so I don’t think I’m even eating enough.
OK that last sentence really make me look like an obsessive compulsive but some days I do think that I am.
The scale has also reflected that I’m not eating enough and I’m now either just under 58 or just above 58kg’s.
I should really make a batch of fat bombs again. I should actually make a sweet batch and a savoury batch and if I want to comfort eat I should rather grab one of those – it does fill me up a lot and you can only eat that much fat anyway.
Do you also find the size difference in one age group amazing? I always think that Zoe is actually quite tall for her age and she was born in January which means she has an advantage over kids born in December. But there are girls in her age group that is playing netball that is at least a head taller than her! Amazing and then there are little kids that is about a head smaller than Zoe. Shame they do have a distinct disadvantage when trying to defend the ball. However they do make up for it with the grit, spunk and determination.
OK this was written yesterday, since then Zoe has pulled her own tooth out during break at school. So the mouse came to visit last night.
Electricity cables were stolen in the night and the whole of the south of Boksburg is without electricity. So I feel so dirty this morning because we couldn’t shower although I did take a bath last night before we went to bed. The lack of coffee is also catching up with me. Well I don’t think the cable thief will try and take cables again – he was found in the veld with severe burns all over his body.
Comrades training is now over and I really just have to stay healthy and injury free for the next 10 days. I’m struggling a bit with sinus but that is purely because of the dirty air here in Gauteng and all the veld fires.
Is it my imagination or are the veld fires particularly early and extreme this year?
Well that is all the news from my side. Work is still strange but I’m just keeping my head down and working.
