    Getting upset with DH takes my appetite, so I yell.
    He puts his hand up and says, no strife, no strife.

    I can't remember ever eating to get back at my husband. On the other hand, when I was furious about much of anything, I would find myself at the fridge, grabbing for something. Probably looking for some emotional comfort. I think I get furious much less often now, because I can't remember doing that for a long time. And I've found better outlets too.

    Sabine, does your husband even know that it bothers you? Or why? Do you know why it bothers you? That's where you're going to have to work this out, figuring out the roots of your irritation and deciding whether it is reasonable. If it is, then it needs to be discussed with your husband. If it isn't, you've got to find a way to short-circuit it, or at least redirect it.

    I've redirected my fury, for example, into writing venting emails (in the word processor, so I can't just click to send it) and evaluating a day or two later whether they need to be sent, in a toned-down version. That, and prayer. Very emotional prayers, but God can take it. He's seen it all, and he knows what's going on in me anyway, so no need to sugar coat. It sure beats eating or screaming. I tell him what I'm mad about, why I'm mad about it, and ask for his wisdom and love to handle it well. Sometimes he has to listen to it a lot of times before it gets resolved in my own heart, mind you. Good thing he can take it...

    I don't think I've ever eaten in anger or revenge. Depression? Sure. Self pity? You betcha. Never anger or revenge. If I'm in that kind of mood, food is the last thing on my mind.

    I'm a stress eater. When I feel everyone but me is controlling my world I go to food - cuz only I can control that!! I controlled myself all the way up to 216 pounds! Dumb.........

    Now that the main sources of stress no longer live in my house - I don't do that anymore.

    my motivation

    Things I choose to let go:

    All grains - including rice
    Refined sugars
    Legumes - including peanut butter
    Nuts and nut butters
    Alcohol and soda
    Chocolate
    Acidic foods, such as pineapple and tomato
    Coffee and tea
    Eggs
    Curry
    White potato
    Dairy - including butter

    I'm choosing to do this......... I don't HAVE to.

    I'm doing this because I'm worth it - because I'm worthy - because I love myself.

    By the skin of my teeth

    I made it through just a regular 80% day (peanut butter), which feels like a victory. This in spite of cookie decorating going on, which IS a victory!

    Up at 6:00
    Weight:208.0

    10:15 greens shakhuka-style
    2 eggs
    2 bratwurst

    1:45 1/4C peanut butter

    3:30 primal trail mix

    6:30 spaghetti squash
    meat marinara
    parmesan

    9:30 more primal trail mix

    Walking: none
    Water: 8 glasses

    Bed at 10:30

    I purposely went for the get-stuffed-with-trail-mix feeling to avoid looking around for something, anything, to eat. It worked. Granted, this is not an every day strategy, but to help me get back to eating the right foods for me, I'll take it.

    News from the home front: Girlfriend is heading back home this morning. We had a really nice visit. Middlest received her second college acceptance, this time to one of her first choice schools. Yay! Reasonable beginning level scholarship offer. Minimal work has been done on the secret project. Need to get back on it.

    Ridiculous amount of dishes on the sink this morning: lots of little bowls of tinted frosting, spreading knives, mixing bowls. Plus spaghetti dinner stuff: pot to boil water, two pans from sauces, microwave container from spaghetti squash, colander. Mercy!

    Other stuff, just a lot of rambling, really

    I'm about 2/3rds through 'Sugar:The Bitter Truth'. Having to watch it in chunks. It really is spelling out how bad it is for your body. Not just weight, which is what most of us think, but on so many levels. Sigh.

    Did I mention that Chica is in heat? The whole dynamic between the three dogs is changing because of this. At first, she was confusing the others, but now they are starting to frisk together. Of course, they haven't got what she's looking for, but I'm thinking this might help them learn to play together in the long run. Right now there is a lot of yipping going on, as Chica urges them to DO SOMETHING.

    I cannot find our Christmas album. I'm hoping it just got packed up with the Christmas items last year, and not put back with the albums, as it should have been. But I'm a little worried. Not worried enough to get everything down from the attic three days early, though, so I guess that tells me something.

    Started knitting some mitts for my sister-in-law on Saturday. I haven't had a lot of solid time to work on them, but I'm still almost done with the first one. I think the fun of doing cables pulls you forward in the work. Girlfriend liked the Owl mitts I made for her.

    We're expecting rain tonight, so Eldest and I are going to rig a rain fly over the tent this afternoon. It is NOT waterproof, as we discovered a few days ago. He spent a couple nights inside, but it is much easier on his allergies when he can get away from the dogs for a solid 9-hour chunk. The pills are helping a little.

    All pots and pans are done- now working on the frosting bowls. Amazing how hard royal icing can get. I was trying to get most of it off, and into the trash, rather than dissolving it and sending it down the drain, and I left it too late. No wonder gingerbread houses are so sturdy!

    Thinking of making some inspiration cards at the beginning of the year, with quotes and poetry along with pictures from magazines. I have one with the poem, 'Invictus' on my fridge, which stirs my spirit every time I look at it. Very simple, just clips of poppies, hands clapping, and stone villages, but very satisfying to make and to look at. I'd like to have a little deck of them, to look through when I have the urge.

    Last night we watched 'Twelve Angry Men'. I had never seen it before. Good reason for it to be a classic. What an amazing ending, with the last hold-out collapsed on his arms as he gives his vote. I liked that until the VERY end, you know none of their names. And even the two men introducing themselves, is just a prelude to a farewell, not the beginning of a relationship. Their purpose is done.

    Finances and food, the biggest irritations of any relationship.

    I agree, terrific movie. So powerful.

    These owl mitts, they sound great! Maybe I should pick up knitting needles again?

    Gotta see that film. I KNOW sugar is bad for me. The worst! Seriously, it's like crack for me. (Am going to eat some cauliflower and forget about sugar.)
