    I'm going to private message Lex and PrimalCajun. I think they are most likely to have her info.

    Update:
    PrimalCajun says she's fine, just not posting now. Hopefully, we'll hear from her soon.

    I know what you mean about seeing fasting as a welcome break from eating. I hope to get there relatively soon again.

    Into the trash it goes!

    There was an INCIDENT with nuts yesterday. I have decided the splenda is to blame, so this morning I emptied my two LARGE tupperware containers of it into the trash. It is just not worth it. I will get used to minimally sweet cinnamon nuts.

    Here's what happened:

    Up at 4:45(dogs!)
    Vitamins

    10:00 1 1/2 chicken legs (dry)
    1C mixed greens
    3 jicama slices with
    spinach-cheese dip
    1 brazil nut

    1:30 1/2C cinnamon-splends pecans
    1/4 lb ground beef and pork
    5 mushrooms
    2oz cheddar

    1/2C pecans
    1 square dark chocolate

    4:30 3 squares dark chocolate
    more nuts
    spinach dip in romaine leaves
    more nuts
    1 1/2 oz blue cheese
    oh my goodness, MORE nuts

    6:45 2oz steak
    3oz sweet potato
    caesar salad with
    avocado

    Water: 9 glasses
    Walking: 40 minutes

    Bed at 10:00

    At least my falalfel induced gas is gone. Small mercies. I'll take 'em!

    Today is sashimi day. For those of you keeping score at home, last week when I had sashimi, there was NO creme brulee involved. Will it happen again this week? Stay tuned.

    Oh yes, even slightly sweet nuts will send me off the deep end - if you add in salt, watch out. Actually that is everything the human body craves in one tiny package - sugar, salt, fat.

    I think you have all seen Pam posted on her thread - she has been busy with a happy real life, which is the finest reason for not posting.

    I should post this on my own thread instead of hijacking yours, but I am strangely reluctant to eat although I am a bit hungry. Been that way all day. Earlier I did eat a fairly light breakfast, but now it is 4:30 in the afternoon.

    Vicious attack!

    Well, things have changed.

    While doing yard work this morning, I was stung. Three times.

    To understand my reaction to this, you should know that the first time I was stung by a bee, my foot swelled up so much and so quickly that my skin split open. I was weeping from the pain. Subsequent stings have had less violent reactions, but still, pretty bad. Much pain and swelling.

    I was pretty pleased with how I handled myself after the first sting. Zipped inside, started icing it, took benadryl and aspirin at once, and no actual tears (maybe a few almost ones). I soaked my foot in vinegar, as per my beekeeper friend. After an hour, I felt like I could hobble around a bit, so I went outside to collect my tools and haul out the last pile of trimmings to the curb.

    That's when I discovered that it was probably a wasp, not a bee. Two more stings, this time, courtesy of having flown up my shorts, on my rear. If there was anyone in the alley they got an eyeful, as I tore off my shorts and panties, to swat away the critter.

    Let me tell you, there is just no practical way to soak your rear in vinegar.

    Since then, it has been very painful. Steady pain all the time, with bizarre little throbs, that have me grimacing or saying THINGS. But knowing it was probably a wasp the first time, too, makes me feel calmer. Perhaps the swelling will not be as bad.

    I still went out for lunch with Middlest. No creme brulee was eaten, mostly because I gave myself permission to eat WHATEVER this afternoon, as I recline here, nursing my injuries. The huge bowl of ice cream I am indulging in right now, tastes wonderful. And there will be chocolate truffles later if I want. As many as I want.

    All bets are off once stinging insects enter the picture.

    And that is as it should be.

    Ask if you can have a side of veggies or salad instead.

    I'm so sorry about your stings
    But this made me laugh

    I like your list! We should all make them.

    OUCH on the stings! You might try soaking a towel in vinegar and applying that to your rear. Personally, I would start drinking heavily.
