    I can NOT read accounts of other people's binges.

    Agave syrup is the DEVIL.

    Back tomorrow.

    LOL!

    I am happy all winter with coffee and various teas and a single big cup of water a day. Come summer it's a different story! I guzzle ice water all day. But I am glad I developed a taste for mineral water years ago. When I"m tired of plain water, it's nice to drink something with a taste. Straight club soda will do in a pinch.

    Yes, I'm skipping a day

    I don't even want to write down what I did on Monday. Except that there was 55 minutes of walking. That was good.

    Why did the bad stuff happen? I'm not sure. The inciting incident, I'm sure, was sampling the gluten free chocolate crisp bar I bought over the weekend. 1/2 of the bar, 12grams of carbs, with a meal, but boy howdy, what ever was in it made me crazy. (I blame the agave - that's the only 'new' thing. No more of that for me, no, sir.) An hour and a half later I was trolling for food, anything to stuff in my face, feeling very antsy.

    Why didn't I say to myself, 'hey, that bar set off some cravings. Let's deal with it?' Instead, I started shoveling food in. Started primal, because we don't have a lot of non-primal in the house, but there are stashes. And I escalated into them. And went out of the house for some secret eating. Ugh.

    Can't point to any emotional state that made it easy to give into that sugar rush after the bar. I guess I just didn't take the time to deal with it. Turned off my mind and let old habits take over.

    So, I did not avoid stupid mistakes or use my brain on Monday.

    I did better on Tuesday:

    Up at 5:45
    Vitamins

    8:30 5 pork sausages
    2 eggs scrambled in
    butter
    2T salsa
    1/2 avocado

    2:30 lamb chop
    1T A-1 sauce
    2C sauteed spinach
    1/2 banana
    3 oz blue cheese

    7:45 2C ground beef with homemade marinara
    tomato, onion, bell peppers, garlic
    cheddar
    2C strawberries
    1/2C cream with
    1 packet stevia

    Water: 8 glasses
    Walking: 95 minutes!

    Bed at 9:00

    Goal for today: keep brain turned on!

    Also, I have no plans to take up Mark's new challenge. Still working on the old one.

    I have read agave syrup often is as processed as HFCS! And gluten-free chocolate? That's like saying glutenfree cheese, or fat-free apples. Why should anyone ever put gluten in chocolate?
    Anyhow, new day, new start . Lesson learned (next time leave the samples and just go for good quality dark chocolate ).

    Good thing that every day is a new day, right? It's not like you get voted off the island or that you drove your car over a cliff. Thank God, there are some bad decisions that just slow us down. Mine was a panful of primal brownies a while back. I ate almost the whole batch in one sitting. I was in a snarky mood. For me, upset and angry are dangerous places to be food-wise. That's when I find myself in front of the fridge, determined to stuff my face.

    What's helping me avoid excess sweets is a profound desire to stay off the blood sugar roller-coaster. It's so nice to miss the crashes. I'm sure I will still blow it occasionally, and hopefully the experience will be bad enough to make it easier to say no the next time.

    Here's to a new day.

    One thing I am pleased about, is how quickly I felt good again, after a morning of eating as I should. Back in the day, a day like Monday would have been the start of WEEKS of poor eating. If I have gained the ability to stop after one episode, and keep it from turning into a habit, that's HUGE.

    Glad you're feeling good and are back in the saddle!

    I am lucky, I live in an extremely beautiful place - a coastal Maine fishing village. Yes, it looks like a postcard. Towering pine trees, huge rocks, islands, sparkling water, fishing boats. We have a footbridge over the narrowest part of the harbor, which makes for a handy walking circuit. And I have a nature preserve almost next door to my home.
