    A good day

    I made it through yesterday without eating anything 'bad'.

    Had to go to be early to achieve it, but I did it!

    Early as in, before I was tired. I've been sleeping in so much (yay, summer!) that my bedtime has been pushed back. Last night I went to bed at 8:30, and turned out the lights at 9:15 without feeling tired. Went right to sleep, though.

    The only one of my strategies I used was the guacamole (figures). Otherwise, I just ended up being too busy to think about eating. By evening, I didn't feel like DOING anything, so when I found myself wandering aimlessly around the kitchen, I went to bed. No nails, no notecards, no facemask. But no eating, either.

    Here's the details:

    Up at 7:30
    Vitamins

    10:45 4 sausages
    2 eggs scrambled in
    2t butter
    2T salsa
    cheddar

    2:15 1C jicama slices
    guacamole
    1oz colby jack

    Throughout the afternoon: 3C iced coffee with LOTS of cream

    5:00 fried tilapia
    1 1/2c sauteed zuccini, crookneck, peppers
    poached pear with whip cream and nuts

    7:30 1 bratwurst with
    mustard
    1C cauliflower salad
    2oz muenster

    Water: 13 glasses
    Walking: 40"

    Bed at 9:15

    Hey, if a serving of vegetables is 1/2 cup (except for raw greens, at 1 cup), I had 8 servings of veg/fruit yesterday. Not bad.

    Feels good to have a normal day of eating under my belt. Not quite in control yet, but facing in the right direction. Did The Thing yesterday, too, but with a friend to help talk me through it. Not feeling so glum. I'm sure the absence of sugar crashes is helping.

    Glad you got in a clean day. I made it through yesterday without a binge, but I did have sugar and wheat at the cast gathering after the show.

    So, I walked down to the market this morning, and noticed a difference to my movement. I'm not 'trudging' any more, lifting my knees. I am 'loping', with my legs swinging from my hips. Towards the end of the walk (90"!) it was actually getting easier. I think it must conserve movement, or something, but it felt great. Also, much easier to enjoy your mental soundtrack when you are loping as opposed to trudging. I even felt kind of sexy. Sabine the predator, stalking home after her successful hunt(chicken and beef bones).

    Pebbles- No binging is a good thing. Do you think your being so busy this summer has helped?

    Kerry-the recipe is an adaptation of Mollie Katzen's from 'The Moosewood Cookbook'. I like to respect copyright, but I think I could in good conscience say it is:
    Boiled potatoes(I used sweet potato) mashed into a doubled amount of cottage cheese, yogurt, and sour cream.
    Saute onions and cabbage(twice as much volume as your potatoes) with caraway, dill, and salt.
    Mix everything together, and add a splash of vinegar.
    Bake until heated through.

    It is a good cookbook, and well worth taking a look through. Next I am going to try and primalize her cauliflower-cheese pie in a grated potato crust.

    I guess I did catch myself pretty quickly. Three days is nothing like the weeks and months it used to be. Thanks for pointing that out, Kerry. It is important to remind ourselves of the things we are doing well at.

    Just finished lunch. My honey tried out a way of grilling chicken thighs, to test before we have guests over tomorrow. The girls and I volunteered to be guinea pigs. Yum, yum. I also had a massive amount of cauliflower salad, so what did I do as soon as I was done eating? Start prowling for a dessert. Aaarrrgh!!!

    So, after I finish this post, I'm going to go paint my nails. Then I have to drive Littlest to her weekend activities, so that should distract me for a bit.

    Bingeing - No, I'm busy most of the time. The Truth is that what is working is a combo of Therapy with an eating disorders specialist and Prozac. My food issues are such that I had to go to those extremes to stop, but my health issues just can't be ignored so I can have an eating "free for all" every couple of days.

    Just popping in to say hi & catch up with you! Sounds kinda like we've been doing the same thing. The last couple of weeks I've been eating some things I shouldn't! Why is it we know we shouldn't be putting xyz in our mouth but yet continue to munch away?? So I'm up a little but I realize its temporary & just need to dust myself off & get back to the plan.

    Good to hear you're doing well!! keep up the good work!

    Slouching toward normality

    Trying a new recipe is NOT a good idea when you are trying to get back to normal. But I pulled out a save, just barely.

    Yesterday:
    Up at 8:00
    Vitamins

    12:15 barbeque chicken thigh
    2C cauliflower salad

    2:15 1oz chicken with
    guacamole!

    4:45 3 jencakes (3gC) (eggs, cream cheese, vanilla, coconut flour)
    1T jam (5gC)
    1 jencake with almond butter and jam (4gC?)
    1 bratwurst with
    mustard
    1oz chicken with
    guacamole

    7:00 cheese
    raisins
    1/2C sunflower seeds

    Water: 10 glasses
    Walking: 90"

    Bed at 9:30

    Ever since I read Jenn's recipe for pancakes, I've wanted to try it. Whipped some up in the afternoon, and everyone liked them. Plus, I wanted to see how they would taste, cold, as a base for an ABJ. Fantastic! This could be dangerous. They set me off into munching mode, which I finally stopped with some protein and fat, but I think I would have been wiser to try them AFTER a huge honk of meat.

    The evening eating was also from the little sugar spike I think, and that one I solved by a massive quantity of sunflower seeds. I needed to feel stuffed to stop wandering, and half a cup of sunflower seeds will definitely do that.

    So, more carbs than I like, and more sugar, but nothing BAD.

    The guests will be here in four hours, so I'm off to do the last kitchen and bathroom cleaning. Much protein and vegetables will be consumed, as well as a little rice and fruit.
