Today I write this as our Victorian Premier announced the end of our sixth (who's counting?) lockdown in Melbourne. Apparently, we broke the world record for the longest time spent living in lockdown throughout the Covid 19 pandemic.
Fair to say, a lot and not a lot has happened since my last post over a year ago. The biggest milestone was becoming a first time mum, and this week we celebrate her first birthday!
It's definitely been a tough time not seeing family, friends and enjoying the simple things (I cannot WAIT to walk into Kmart and walk out with what I want...) and the thing I've heard from most of you the fatigue of trying to remain upbeat and looking after yourself whilst trying to survive. The only words I can say to you is: be kind. This sense of standing still is coming to an end and a level of (new) normality will return soon. And so will your sense of self and wellbeing.
In amongst learning the ropes of parenthood, The Nutrition Circle has continued to operate predominately by telehealth (online video appointments) which will definitely be here to stay. Many of you have told me that it's convenient to have your appointment during your lunch break and with the flexibility of working from home, this means that you no longer have to jam appointments after hours in your week.
I will be returning to face to face appointments in the clinic in the near future, however like everyone else I'm navigating this to ensure your and my safety is held front and centre so please be patient.
For now, the plan to is continue to post a few more blogs around nutrition and hormone health with a few non diet tips that I hope will be useful over the next few months.
Until then, stay safe.
