Back on schedule after my dog sitting adventure.

Starting a Whole 30 today.
Except I can't really claim that because I eat white rice. So yeah, Let's call it W30 on a bed of rice. All other rules apply. Smile

Argh! Now I want W30 on a bed of rice with 85% dark chocolate for dessert. Ah...The slippery slope at it's best.

Sadly, in order to comply with my 12 step program, chocolate is out no matter how dark. 😜

Pebbles, apparently there are people in this world who don't actually like or miss chocolate.  You could become one of them.  Smile

My students were telling me that they saw a report that chocolate is going to disappear in 50 Years anyway. Might as well get used to it.

I hate those binge phases.  When I'm not sleeping enough the cravings go through the roof.  When I eat higher fat and protein my cravings go way down with chocolate truffles sitting in the fridge for days, not hours... .

Glad you've begun the cleaner diet. I believe that even with a deviation, 90% of the diet will still have a very positive impact on our health.

I agree HFF. Having read your journal, I see that our eating patterns sound similar Unfortunately, I find that no strategy works all the time so I need to have many strategies. #Eating disorders. 😐

This is Princess, my calico kitty. Besides being a very special friend, she too has an eating disorder. She eats grass and then throws it up.

Last spring a friend gave me pampas grass to create some privacy on my balcony. Princess fell in love. She would make a daily Trek to the balcony, eat a bunch of grass then clear her system. In the fall it died off, so I cut it down and brought it inside. Miraculously it started growing again much to the joy of a certain little lady.

I love pampas grass. Have never brought it inside as they are permanent fixtures outdoors.

Can't see the kitty. Sad

The kitty has appeared. I tried to insert the picture using IMG backslash IMG but it did not work.

That's a real beauty, as most calico's are. Just added the pic to adjust the size by the way... not sure about your screen size, but I only have a laptop right now... LOL

Thank you Lovebird. Still working out kinks of picture posting. What settings did you use above?

I used 700x1000 for the Princess pic, however 720x480 for this one:



Yep, better fit. Great view btw.

Just in case: when you click the 'insert image' link it gives you the choice to enter dimensions for width and height, which Rig D in his 'how to' instructions advises to leave blank to avoid distortion of the pic, yet leaves your pics far too large (at least on my device). Any number would do by the way, as long as it follows the 3:4 / 4:3 rule for your pics. My guess with the first one was a little off, but pretty close: 750x1000. Wink

Thanks everybody. She is a very sweet kitty but does get the kitty crazies once in awhile especially in the middle of the night.

LB, I will use the suggested dimensions to protect those with PCS from giant pictures. It was hard to tell because your pictures and mine were all the same size on my phone.

Driving my eldest back to Oswego State University today. 8 hours round trip but the drive should be fine since there's no snow in the forecast. I'll be packing Primal food for the trip.

I agree with HFF stress puts me in choc mode Sad

For the most part yesterday's trip was very successful. I had lovely quality time with my oldest son and I made the round trip in 7.5 hours.

I got home about 4 and was able to attend my local 12 step meeting. Everything seemed okay, but as the evening wore on I begin to feel anxious and hungry.

After a drive like that, sleep is sometimes difficult because my mind thinks I'm still driving. That said I still get some sleep. Yesterday was a different story.

I ended up tossing and turning for 4 hours and finally getting up at 1:30a.m., bingeing and reading a romance novel until I finally crashed again at 3:30 a.m. The alarm went off at 6.

Yesterday my drive to the college was great until the road rage incident. I was driving behind a car going north on a two-lane road when an ambulance came toward us from the south. The guy in front of me whipped over to the shoulder and came to a fast stop which did not give me time to react and pull up behind him. I ended up continuing past. The shoulder was lane sized and the ambulance had no one in front of him so there was no interference. Both beeped at me, which was deserved. I know pulling over is an expected courtesy, but I could not do it under the circumstances.

At the next stop light, I looked behind me. The car I had passed pulled up, the guy jumped out and started heading toward my driver's side door. I did not know his intention but I remember being told by a cop not to engage. I pretended I didn't notice him there. The young man apparently walked to my window, gave me the finger, and continued to give me the finger on his walk back to his car. Luckily he was going right and did not follow us to the school.

I talked a little with my son, saying that it was my fault that I didn't pull over, but that that man had gone too far. He agreed. I would have called the police if he had in any way touched my car. I dropped off my son and headed home.

Unfortunately I think my psyche wasn't ready to let it go. The perfect binge storm of heightened emotions, hormones and lack of sleep got me again. I talked it out with my sponsor and have now shared it with you guys, so hopefully I can get right back to healthy eating.
