            • I hear Serenity isn't as good as the series.

                We have both on DVD. Love the series, but the movie "finishes" it...

                • Saturday

                  I had ENERGY.
                  I cleaned, did laundry.
                  I read (of course)
                  I did a few L3 push-ups and a couple reverse chin ups.
                  I drank wine.
                  foods: tuna and cucumber, beef stew, blueberries, dark chocolate, goat cheese

                  I did not watch all of Serenity. Daughter was at a friends and asked me to pick her up early. She didn't feel good.
                  Of course, I already knew how it ended.

                  • Sunday

                    My parents are putting their sailboat in the water tomorrow (1st time in 8 years!)
                    I went out to the booth to help my sister today so they could get things ready.

                    The booth is my "weak spot".
                    It is FULL of gummy candies, about 10 different flavours of ice cream, fresh cut fries, hand made burgers, perch, etc...

                    I'd like to be able to say I had nothing while I was there (1pm - 6pm)
                    but I had a french fry with ketchup...

                    That was shortly after I got there, then I decided I wouldn't eat anything/didn't NEED anything.

                    I thought about it a couple of times, but then I told myself that I was NOT hungry, I just thought I wanted to eat 'cause I was there.

                    It worked!
                    I had NO ice cream, NO gummy worms, NO onion rings!!!!
                    This time.

                    I forgot: I also had NO wine and NO chocolate today!!!
                    even though there is a open bottle of red...

                    • Nice work! I don't think you managed a day at the booth with only ONE french fry all of last year. I'm impressed .

                        • Okay, definitely time to stick a happy face on your calendar! Do you find that the feeling of being in control is more satisfying than the eating would be? I often do. Not that I don't cave sometimes, but consciously remembering the rewards of self-control is a pretty powerful tool in my box.

                            Thanks ladies!
                            Greensprout: Yeah, last year, the booth was NOT a good place for winencandy!
                            Judg: Sometimes. Sometimes the "control" thing works. Sometimes it doesn't. When I did my Whole 30, the "control" aspect was NOT good for me. Sometimes I can have one (of whatever) and leave the rest. Sometimes I can't stop after one. Sometimes I can tell myself "Not today" (You can give ANYTHING up for one day)

                            My mind is a weird thing

                            I will have to take the booth one day at a time. If I tell myself "NO ice cream, NO candy, No fries ALL summer" I WILL cave. If I can tell myself "Not today, maybe tomorrow", it might work.

                            • Monday

                              Supply teaching job.
                              I stopped and bought "Fresh Local Strawberries" at a farm on the way home.
                              Bleh! They were greenhouse berries Tasted just like grocery store berries.
                              My sister needed to borrow my car Tuesday, so I drove out to the booth and spent a 1/2 hour there.
                              NO fries, NO candy, NO ice cream at the booth!
                              I read some of Empire of Ivory (the 4th Temeraire book) epub version, from the library.

                              Protein shake, blueberries, dark chocolate, leftover chicken, roasted carrots and cauliflower, strawberries, small ice cream on a stick (dipped in chocolate) chai (without whipping cream - I realized that I was drinking WAY TOO MUCH - so I stopped buying it)

                              • Tuesday

                                Of course, since I lent my car to my sister, I got a call for a supply teaching job today. I had to decline it.
                                I went for a walk/run this morning. More walking than running. 2.5K in 25min.
                                dishes, laundry, Temeraire,
                                I was cold today, I had to put on a sweater...

                                Lunch:


                                Supper:


                                Yeah, I know there are BEANS in my chili!!! Whatever...

                                wine and another chocolate covered ice cream on a stick

                                We watched the "Transit of Venus" across the sun with my Farmer's welding helmets after supper.

                                Daughter's 17th birthday is tomorrow, she took some friends into London to watch a movie and buy an ice cream cake
