    Well, eating apparently turns me into a saucy minx, 'cause I've been sprinkling comments hither and yon like there is no tomorrow. Better go do some chores before I get into real trouble.

    Haven't had sushi yet either. Hubby refuses to even contemplate it, so I'll have to go with one of the offspring some time.

    Breakfast

    I broke my fast yesterday. So much fun to be eating again!

    Here's what I did:

    Up at 5:30
    Vitamins

    11:30 1 1/2 plates of sashimi
    1/4C seaweed salad
    1 piece of chicken teriyaki
    1C creme brulee

    4:30 2 pieces quiche
    1 banana fried in
    butter
    1T vodka vanilla

    Water: 15 glasses

    Bed at 9:45

    Felt VERY energetic after eating. That is probably how we should always feel, with our bodies embracing the new energy coming in. I did not have True Hunger for my afternoon meal, but I cut myself some slack. Everything tastes so good when you haven't been eating for a while.

    Woke up without hunger this morning, though, and I aim to wait until True Hunger hits. Several of the people who were fasting along with me (we used the Starting a Fast- anyone interested thread in Nutrition, if anyone wants to check it out) do, or are planning to IF with a 5 or 6 hour window. I have been doing that sometimes just by accident. I don't want to follow it as a plan, but I think I would like to become more aware of how often I eat only two, or one, meals a day. Guess I should go back through my journal, and make a chart.

    I love charts!

    Tomorrow my honey and I are going to play board games with some new friends he met at work (Ecks, take note!). Some of them are vegetarians(Indian-rich work environment) so I got out my Moosewood cookbook.

    The first thing I ever made from it was the ratatouille, and I still make it regularly. But leafing through, I saw some old favorites, and quite a few that could be converted to primal.

    For tomorrow I decided on my cauliflower-bacon salad, minus the bacon, Moosewood's Solyanka, but made with sweet potatoes instead of white ones, and brownies- regular for the crowd, Valentino/semi-primal for me. I'm also taking some chicken satay along, for myself. Just in case.

    Still waiting to get hungry today. I am meeting a friend for a writing date at 3:00, and was planning to have just iced decaf coffee. But if I haven't eaten by then, and hunger strikes... they have a full lunch menu. I'm ready!

    Two things on a bright and beautiful Saturday morning.

    First of all, what are you doing up so early, Pebbles? It is your first day of summer! You should be lolling in bed! But, glad to see you.

    Second, facing the realities of True Hunger again. Waiting to get hungry can be a big annoyance. I know what Ecks said about control, but there is definitely a learning curve to this. Did pretty well yesterday, but I think I may have to face the fact that breakfasts may become a thing of the past.

    Here's what I did:

    Up at 7:30
    Vitamins

    3:30 1 1/2C sauteed zuccini, crookneck, and bell peppers
    corned beef
    sauerkraut
    swiss cheese
    thousand island dressing(just a bit)
    (in other words, a rueben sandwich without the bread)
    1/4 pickle

    3C iced coffee with stevia and 1/2C cream(the real stuff- I brought it from home)

    8:40 1T solyanka (tasted to test for seasoning)

    Water: 16 glasses
    Walking: 90"

    Bed at 9:30

    And why:

    I felt some hunger at about 11:00, but was crazy busy, and didn't have a chance to eat. In the afternoon I met a friend for a writing date, and pounced on the merest suggestion of hunger inside me and had a late lunch. It was stretching things a bit, though.

    Not hungry for dinner. Made some things for Saturday's potluck in the evening, and convinced myself I should do just as the recipe said, and taste to adjust the seasoning. Was not hungry AT ALL, it just smelled and looked so good I glommed onto any excuse. Did confine myself to just 1T- amazing!

    So, not the best with eating to True Hunger, but not the worst. I HAD been hungry earlier in the day, it had just gone to sleep and not woken up again. And I gave into Mental Hunger, but restrained myself amount-wise. I will call it a work in progress.

    Looking forward to eating that Solyanka today, I can tell you that! Delicious!

    Sounds like you're doing wonderfully, Sabine. I might have to take lessons...
