    Ugh.

    Whatever it was, may not be done with me yet. I ate a meal at 11:00, and was feeling good afterwards, but my stomach is feeling very peculiar right now, five hours on.

    Just sip on peppermint tea (great for settling stomachs) or ginger tea (ditto) until you are genuinely hungry. You might want to ease back in to eating with the easier to digest foods, like fruit and veggies. Wait a while for meats and fats. That's my MO when I've had nausea.

    Aversion therapy... Hey, why not? If it works, it works. Not like it's costing you anything.

    I found watching The Skinny on Obesity videos and Sugar: The Bitter Truth to be really effective in creating something of an aversion to sugar. Probably time I rewatched them.

    I hope it goes away soon and takes a few more pounds with it!

    Remember this format?

    Yesterday:

    Up at 6:00
    weight: 210.0

    11:00 big mess of ground beef and ground pork, fried up, with the excess(!) fat drained off
    4 mushrooms, 1/4 onion, 1/2 zucchini, 2T tomato paste
    topped with 1/2 avocado

    6:00 1/4lb beef sausage
    1/2C mashed potatoes
    1/2C squash and corn casserole
    1/2C brussel sprouts and asparagus

    120 minutes of walking
    7 glasses of water

    Some progress made on the secret project, but mostly in my mind, trying to figure something out. Did not.

    Bed at 9:00

    Really, I was dozing off on the sofa at 8:15, but by the time I got myself to bed, read a couple of pages because I just HAD to finish 'Sanditon' (again), under the covers, lights out, really ready to sleep, it was 9:00.

    Water rather low yesterday, I don't know why. I'll watch it today. I did have a nice soaky bath, so maybe I absorbed some through my skin.

    Today I have a head of cabbage on my counter, ready to be sliced up for kraut, and some kale, ready for who knows what.

    Ah, feels good to be back in the routine, doesn't it?

    Corn?

    Still working through the leftover veges from Thanksgiving. That was the last of the casserole, though. I will NOT be having any stuffing, no, not even the cornbread-SAUSAGE stuffing. My, but it was good, though!

    Just finished pounding the cabbage into submission, and am about to walk to the store to get milk for the girls, and a post-workout steak for my Honey. And to return the $2 the checker loaned me yesterday when I was short. She is such a sweet lady. There are definite perks to shopping at the same place for years, that's for certain!

    Secrets!

    I am not going to say a thing!

    I think you get a certain power when you have a secret. Energy bubbles up inside you from it. Very apropos image, since I'm starting kraut. Well, when my secret has transmorgified itself into secret-kraut, I'll reveal it. Until then, just teasing hints. As in...I figured something out while I was walking. Progress of a non-thinking kind can now commence!

    And, no secret: I CANNOT stay away from that Shakshuka. Making another batch of it to have for breakfast. I will wash my dishes while it is cooking down, and sit down to enjoy it in a cleared kitchen, feeling virtuous.

    Because there is a limit to how much you post on others' journals:

    There is an highway interchange in the north DFW area called the High-Five.

    Operative word: HIGH. This thing is crazy high.

    I am not afraid of heights, exactly, but I do have a healthy respect for them. The kind that means I address it with its title, and wear good clothes when I know I'm about to meet it.

    But I don't want to turn into one of those crazy old ladies who will only drive on surface streets within a ten mile distance of their home, so on occasion, I take the High-Five.

    The first time I did this, shaking in my boots(from respect), traffic slowed just as I reached the very tippy-top, and I was STUCK, looking hundreds of feet down over the line of traffic snaking towards the earth. And there I stayed, for several long minutes. Not short minutes, like when you are eating or having sex, but LONG minutes.

    It is a triumph of bravery over reality, that I ever went on it again.

    Do not ask me why I am back on the journals instead of working on the secret.

    I actually think the High Five is pretty cool. It's considered a civil engineering marvel. Then again, I have a professional interest, so my opinion is skewed. That said, I have real problems crossing bridges that move. Heights don't bother me until they move or sway. At that point, I'm scared shitless and looking to GTFO. Tall things shouldn't move.
