    Heading into the main stretch. I think I may FINALLY be getting hungry. It is amazing to me that it can take until the FOURTH day to kick in.

    I am planning my food for tomorrow:
    Pineapple and some banana to start my day. I've been thinking about pineapple lately.
    Then a nice lunch of sashimi.
    Afternoon snack of salmon.

    Dinner is still up in the air. We might be having a friend over, in which case it will be chili. Cornbread, sour cream, cheese on the side for the others. I would probably have mine on top of a baked sweet potato.

    Oh, that reminds me, I need to make a new batch of ghee. Note to self.

    Did I mention (aside from this spontaneous fast), I am now doing 4:3 as my practice maintenance? Somewhere after my Palm Springs weekend, I hit 154 enough that I felt I had made it. My schedule is Down Days on MWF, and Up Days on TRSU. I'm going to give it a month, and then evaluate.

    I am NOT weighing!

    I am prepared that there may be a gain. Even a frightening one. But I am concerned that if I saw a little uptick while I was adjusting, I might let it freak me out. I AM paying attention to how my clothes fit. I like those new size 10 and 12s too much to give them up. I am also keeping an eye on my cheek hollows. When I gain weight, it shows up in my face pretty quickly.

    Fun stuff I am doing today, to keep me busy:
    Picking up a book I ordered, 'Cabinet of Earths'
    Buying fabric for a quilt back
    Clipping Chloe's toenails(okay, that's not fun, but it is a challenge, which counts!)
    Re-watching part of season one of The Walking Dead while I knit

    Normal stuff:
    Dishes
    Bottling kombucha
    Transport duties
    Groceries

    I like the consistency of a 4:3 with the MWF down days, it makes it much easier for me to plan social gatherings and such. Though you have obviously conquered that.

    Just imagine me with a spear and Brunhilde helmet(horns!), standing on the bodies of my enemies!!


    I think what has made social eating easier for me is that I am now completely unhesitant about bringing my own food and eating it. I am always amazed by the threads where people talk about being pressured to eat bad stuff. I guess I hang with a more polite crowd. I have just had a very little of that, and only with one person (my mother-in-law) did I actually give in. I think rules for mother-in-laws are different, though.

    It does give me a heads up, though, that if I am ever together with my own mother (lots of emotional issues there) I will need to be on high alert, brandishing all my weapons, ...er, ... skills.

    I don't usually have an issue when I am out, though I tend to just not eat in situations where I can get away with it and no one would notice. In sit downs, I just switch my down day. This weekend though I have sit downs tonight and tomorrow night, though I am pretty sure I get to select my meal (as opposed to banquet style). I am just going to save my calories for the dinner and skip breakfast and lunch both days, then stay on my normal rotation.

    Dairy Ingestion - No Foolin'

    I thoughtlessly ate something with dairy on Friday. Well, let me tell you, I will be thinking about it for a while! Horrible cramps, nausea, and diarrhea. Bad enough that I made Honey come hold my hand for a while.

    Ugh.

    And now my system is riled up, so my midriff feels tender and there have been some more pains.

    Hopefully, my brain will take this as a visceral lesson, and it will be easier for me to avoid dairy in the future. I can barely even THINK of Leyseiffler truffles without feeling sick (very sad, because they are delicious!) because I ate some while I was suffering morning sickness. Inadvertent aversion therapy. That's what I need for dairy now, so that my instincts yell, STOP!

    But it's not like I chugged down a big glass of milk. I had a slice of almond cake, not stopping to think, hey, what is this frosting made of? Um, yes, what did I THINK it was made of? Fairy dust? I just wasn't thinking. I saw cake, I wanted cake, I ate cake.



    Must try to engage brain from now on.
