FrugalTexan, you can also find them on iTunes if you use it. I listen to them while I'm cleaning house sometimes to re-inspire myself.
Perfect! I'll have to look them up.

Thanks!

Friday I was working on a class assignment from noon till seven today. Didn't eat lunch. I was tempted to make my supper extra large due to missing lunch. But then I made a normal portion of my quinoa mix, and took half a roll of ritz crackers. After finishing my quinoa mix, I looked at the roll an...

Thursday Today was gorgeous weather outside, and I had an hour before I had to be on the class chat (school) ... so I decided to test my ankle and go for a walk. No problem! :D I also decided to test my tailbone and see if it could handle me doing some light jogging --- and, I think the answer is y...

Tuesday
Wednesday


Although the day isn't over yet, I'm calling it a green. There is a situation going on right now which really, really makes me want to reach for the junk food. But I'm working on finding other ways of dealing with it ... at least long enough to hold out till Saturday.

:D Monday I tried a new concoction tonight for supper. Both in the interest of trying to actually *cook* and also use up stuff from the pantry that's been there awhile. :) I made enough for probably 4 servings. 3 cups water 2 Tbsp Nutritional Yeast 1 1/2 cups quinoa 1 can light cream of broccoli sou...

Jan,

I made your recipe last night with quinoa (cheese, veggies). Instead of butter or veg. broth, I used nutritional yeast. It turned out great!

Thursday I didn't sleep very well last night due to my tailbone bugging me, and when I did wake up this morning, my ankle was throbbing. So ... didn't go for a walk. Guess I just need to give it a little more time. I wish I knew what it was that turned the "switch" on and off for me in regards to t...

Thank you Starla and Dandelion. One day at a time, that's all I'm asking for. Wednesday My ankle is feeling a good bit better. So, tomorrow morning I think I'm going to try an easy walk around the neighborhood. If all goes well, then I can at least get some walking in. I don't think I'll try for run...

Starla,

What if you try to get back into it by saying "today I'll do *something* where I move for ten minutes." Then everyday you do that - anything - you count that as a success. Eventually it'll become a habit again, and you can add to it.

Thanks Dandelion. The ankle mostly only bothers me when I'm going up and down stairs.

It'll get better I'm sure, just have to give it som...

I'm glad the temptation passed for you. It's a sinking feeling when you start to give in to it - especially, since like you pointed out, it isn't as though this is a *difficult* eating plan.

I hope the weird situation(s) clear up soon for you.

Thank you Starla and Dandelion. It makes me really sad how far off track I've been now for at least a month. :X The only thing I can think of is that maybe it started out as a reaction to getting out of the stressful/toxic landlady's home and into my new residence. And then it continued on and on, a...
