        • Still clearing out

          It's a good life, that's for certain. When the kids were little, it ran a lot like this: Play with kids+. Read with kids+. Take kids to play with friends+. Nurse baby+. Repeat+++. Drop into bed exhausted!

          And that was good, too.

          Yesterday went like this:

          Up at 7:15
          Weight: 209.5

          10:30 ham
          2 fried eggs
          greens

          12:15 3 coconut oil-chocolate cups with walnuts(normal ones!)

          3:15 ham with
          broccoli-cheddar soup
          wait 15"
          1/2 pickle
          brie
          liverwurst

          6:30 casserole with
          ground beef
          tomatoes and tomato paste
          spaghetti squash
          cheese
          2 squares dark chocolate
          cream with sugar-free chocolate-raspberry syrup

          Walking: none
          Water: 12 glasses

          Bed at 9:00

          I seem to have had a chocolate theme going on yesterday. My period is overdue, so maybe this is a sign that it is almost here.

          I'm not tracking my numbers, but I am leaning towards more fat, inspired by the LCHF thread. Also, I have a bunch of that soup to use up. And Christmas ham.

          For my afternoon meal, I decided to lengthen it by having a fifteen minute waiting period in the middle. And making sure I had something to really crunch on (pickle). I think both of these behavioral tweaks, are important to me feeling mentally satisfied with my meal. I'm going to incorporate them more often.

          It is very cold here (For Texas! Don't laugh at me, all you Northeners.) and I am not feeling much like walking. Must summon some resolve.

          Also must cut the dogs' nails, write my thank you notes, and plan a college visit. Hmm, which is easiest?

          Can't remember if I mentioned it here, but I am planning to resume my monthly fasts. The first one will be on January 1st. There's a thread for it on the Nutrition page, if anyone is interested. I'm writing up a list of nourishing things to do for my body and spirit besides eating during the fast. So far I have: dry skin brushing; massages from Honey; listening to meditation tapes; cold baths; warm detox baths; long, slow walks; snuggling with the dogs and watching movies while knitting; doing a facial and manicure hour.

          Anything else to suggest?

          • I am getting more and more interested in making a soup. I have a ton of bone broth in the freezer. I'm thinking of making it up and putting it in jars and then freezing the leftovers so I have a quick and easy go to when I'm ravenous or lazy. Maybe this weekend. Carrots and broth... yummmmmmmmmmm

            • Sabine, I LOVE your nourishing things list. Very cool.

              • I'm not much into soup. I think I need to chew lots to feel like I've really eaten something. I do love a good clam or seafood chowder though! Too bad I'm off dairy.

                • Eating soup makes me crave saltine crackers... lol But I enjoy a nice warm cup of soup occasionally. I make mine with lots of stuff - carrots, celery, cabbage, kale, chicken (of course), onion, etc, so there's a little bit of stuff to chew.

                  • My "soups" are usually "stoups." There's more solid than liquid, usually.
                    Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, steak in one hand, chocolate in the other, yelling "Holy F***, What a Ride!"

                          • Working my way back to 205

                            I like to see the scale go down. I know this is the holiday bloat coming off, but it is still very satisfying, seeing a pound or more at a time (in the right direction!).

                            I was up in the night with Chica- she was very bloated, and not feeling well. A quick trip to the vet this morning revealed that her stomach is PACKED! She has gotten some extra food somewhere, I guess. Treats that were left out?

                            Doctor's orders: fast for two days, and some anti-nausea medicine to help her through. Poor little one. The vet said we could expect her to be a couch potato for a while. I think she'll have some company. I feel like sitting and watching movies today. But first, the gym with Littlest, who wants to go running. I will walk.

                            Here was yesterday:

                            Up at 6:00
                            Weight: 207.5

                            12:00 2 plates of sashimi
                            1/2C rice
                            1C seaweed salad
                            NO creme brulee!!!

                            9:00 casserole from yesterday
                            beef, spaghetti squash, tomatoes, cheese
                            3 coco-choco cups

                            Walking: none
                            Water: 12 glasses

                            Bed at 10:30

                            The late dinner was due to us locking ourselves out of the car, and all the brangling that such an event causes. Yay for friends who live right next to Half-Price Books! I was hungry when we got home, but mostly I was COLD and really wanted a warm, filling meal in my tummy. The casserole is sort-of plain, but good, hearty fair.

                            We have so many leftovers in the fridge. Inroads must be made. No one gets a sandwich or a snack for the next day: they must eat MEALS!

                            Tomorrow I am going to make those cauli-tots that popped up on the forum recently. One batch without bacon for our vegetarian friends, one batch WITH, for us! We're going over to play games, and it sure will be nice to have an afternoon together again. Being tied at home with no working car, or money for gas is the pits! So glad that is over.

                            Littlest found a very nice full-length dress for her NYE party dance. Black, sleeveless, with an inset of spring green and co-ordinating embroidery on both sides of it. Slight adjustments need to be made, because the manufacturers never allow for a bust, even a modest one, on the small sizes, it seems. But at $13, wow!

                            Well, I better get to the dishes. There is not a clean fork in the house.

                            • I feel for Littlest. I truly do. I wear size Extra Tiny and nearly every manufacturer seems to think I have a concave chest and no hips. For dresses, I hafta go up a size and take in the waist. It's the only way things without stretch will fit.
                              Then again, pattern makers seem to get the bottom half right and assume I have bazongas out to THERE (mind you, mine aren't small, but these are at least a cup size or 3 atop my already generous bra size.)
                              I'm glad you're able to fix it for her, though. I learned to sew because I was the only person that could take in my clothes.
                              Getting locked out of your vehicle sucks monkey butts! Glad y'all were able to get it taken care of and there was kith nearby.

                              • There are now clean forks, knives, spoons, and mugs. Umm, that's about it.

                                When we were at Half Price Books yesterday, I saw a cookbook parody of 'Fifty Shades of Gray' - "Fifty Shades of Chicken'. Picked it up for chuckles, and the recipe it fell open to was a bacon-trussed chicken wing! I think I may have to get this book! That's the kind of bondage I could get into. Or around, I suppose.

                                Have purchased the fabric and velcro to expand the back of Littlest's gown. She has a great figure, just not what part dress manufacturers are designing for, I guess. I think it will take about an hour, but I'm not going to tackle it until tomorrow morning. I am somewhat dozy from my interrupted sleep last night.

                                All the kids are pretty handy with sewing. Eldest learned to quilt when he was young, he can do repairs, and he frequently makes hand-crafted gifts with sewing involved. He's also a great beader. He made Littlest a beaded dachshund for Christmas. One of the best things that I think Middlest and Eldest ever made was a squid hat for Littlest. Middlest also makes her won costumes for the cons she goes to.

                                The anti-nausea medicine has been giving Chica more pep, but she is NOT understanding this whole 'no food' thing. I can tell she is wondering where the heck her breakfast went! The worst thing about being locked out was it was freezing in the spot I wanted to wait (to keep an eye on the car- after all, the key was sitting there right on the front seat, for anyone to see). The best thing was plenty of reading material.

                                Honey made sure to bring his wife up in conversation. I think he's hoping to get lucky. I might throw him a bone. (See Siobhan's journal if you don't know what the heck that means.)
