My N=1 experiment. 1. Cut way back on dairy and nightshades and -obviously- grains and sugar 2. take a flavorless shot of calories in the form of MCT or Extra Light Olive oil chased by a tsp of xylitol in a liter of water in the middle of a 2 hour flavorless time span twice a day 3. take a 1 hour nap or listen to meditation
Yesterday...well, I ate too much. At dinner, I guess I ate too fast, didn't realize I was full until well after I was finished, then I was stuffed. Unfortunately that did keep me out of the ice cream, However I did have only 1/2C. This is amazing, as I have always thought that the 1/2C serving size was a joke. So while I am not all the way there, things are definitely improving.
I didn't get to do the meditation yesterday, had to get the AC fixed in my car by the time I got home DH walked in behind me. the problem with trying to do the meditation when he is home is that his footsteps are clompers and I can't relax when he is stomping around the house.
My optimism is picking back up, my curiosity is still peeked.

Thankfulness: I am thankful I have teenagers in the house! My son is working to get my meditations into a playlist and onto my iPod (for some reason iTunes or my computer don't like this one) so I can listen in the afternoon and at night-currently have to use a cd player for the daytime one and it eats up the batteries!
