    That soup sounds fabulous! Very nice of you to make it for a potluck. If I made that for my church's potluck I would be very popular, and no one would suspect me of eating "healthy."

    Another one meal day

    Siobhan- the Solyanka is even better than a soup: it's a casserole! Sweet potato, cottage cheese, sour cream cabbage, onion caraway. Mmmmm. I was loving it! I'm hoping to have the leftovers for breakfast with some bratwurst and quiche, if I can get hungry before my family finishes it off.

    The people I was eating with are apparently unadventurous in their eating. Only one tried the solyanka, and no one braved the Waldorf salad. I managed to resist the chickpeas(not too hard, as they were spicy, and I don't do spicy, but man, they smelled fantastic) and the fritters (grain-based batter) and asked for just a spoonful of the rice and ended with 1 cup! When Indian ladies serve up for you, they mean for you to eat hearty! It was fantastic. I'm going to see if I can get the recipe. Lemon involved, and cashews, a lots of lovely turmeric.

    Okay, I seem to be racing ahead of myself. Maybe I should say how yesterday went:

    Up at 6:30
    Vitamins

    4:00 1C indian rice
    1C taco meat
    1/2C Waldorf salad-apples, celery, pecans, raisins in yogurt/mayo dressing
    1/2C Solyanka- cabbage, sweet potato, onion, cottage cheese, sour cream, yogurt, and CARAWAY!
    2T ganache

    Water:16 glasses
    Walking: 90"

    Bed at 10:00

    My plans went slightly awry. Ran out of time and didn't make the chicken satay- grabbed a container of taco meat before I ran out the door. Ditto with the Valentino brownies for me, but I did take the time to mix up some ganache with dark chocolate and cream, and bring a bit for my dessert, so that I would stay away from the devil brownies.

    And it worked. Although, getting up in the middle of the night with the dogs, I was actually tempted by them again! (Really? You're trying to trick me, Mind Hunger, when I am half asleep? Not sporting, not sporting at all!) This morning, no dice. I consolidated the leftovers and closed up the container without a thought of putting them in my mouth. But I am wondering if Mind Hunger had been ready for me to have Valentinos, and felt cheated. Maybe I should take the time to make some this week, to fulfill the mental promise that seems to be going on. I could spread the leftover ganache on top! Ooooh!

    Had a great time playing games. I felt at ease with this group right away. Hope they felt likewise, and that we can get together again soon.

    Now, to go tackle dishes. Littlest and Middlest got adventurous while we were away, and it seems every pot in the house was used!

    I meant to post with the pathetic cry of "I want to get hungry!".

    As my computer was doing its start up thing, I thought I felt the trace of Hunger. Just a little whisper.

    Now it is gone, before it even got to the point of saying, "I might be hungry!"

    Rats.

    No photo. And I haven't yet learned how to get the pictures from the camera to the computer. But I shall make it again, and presumably after I acquire the photo skill. Although, really, it tastes much better than it looks.

    Please disregard this post until I bring it up again

    You can do it.
    It doesn't matter if you stuff your face while you are doing it.
    Be afraid, but still do it.
    You can, you can, you can.
    It is supposed to feel hard. It is supposed to BE hard.
    But you have got the chops for it.
    Eat ALL the Waldorf salad, if that is what it takes to get you through it, but do it!
    Now get off the internet, stop stalling, and do it.
    Just 30 minutes.
    You can do anything for 30 minutes.
    Except hold your breath.
    Stop that!
    Go.

    Well. Well, well, well.

    Thanks for the encouraging words, Siobhan. Yesterday I did something that is important for me, but also, very scary.

    One of the challenges of life is when you are tackling changing habits, you can't just put everything else on hold. Life throws its normal stuff at you, and sometimes you even go seeking it out. Yesterday I did something I have been putting off for a while, and as soon as I started, all these FEELINGS came roiling up. Very difficult feelings. And my mind yelled, "EAT!"

    I had just eaten two hours before. I was in no way hungry. But I was so anxious, that I caved. And pretty darned quickly. Knowing what I was doing, not terribly thrilled by it, but just too squashed to do anything but my old pattern.

    And yet, I am glad I did this thing. I'm going to do it again today. And I may eat emotionally again today. But I will try to refrain.

    Either I will stop being scared of this, or I will come up with some other way of beating back the fear. Any ideas? (And no, I cannot have sex each time. For this situation it would not be practical, though I am sure my honey would be willing to try. Some other confidence booster will have to do.)

    So, here's the details:

    Up at 6:00
    Vitamins

    12:00 strip of lamb fat
    small piece of quiche
    2 bratwurst
    1C Solyanka
    1C Waldorf salad

    2:30 ganache
    Waldorf Salad, lots!

    6:30 taco salad with
    taco ground beef
    cheddar
    lettuce
    tomato
    1/8 avocado
    sour cream
    salsa
    1C Waldorf salad

    9:00 More Waldorf salad
    dark chocolate

    Water:16 glasses
    Walking: 50"

    Bed at 10:30

    I would say at noon I was more determined to be hungry, rather than actually hungry. Would my emotions have been easier to deal with in a non-eating way if I had refrained from eating at noon? Since I am going to do The Thing again today, there's one way to find out.

    Funny, my emotional reaction to those things is to lose myself in computer games. Not role-playing, just brain teasers.
