Today feels like a sauna. We're not used to that kind of weather. Albany in Western Australia is usually know for its rather cool and rainy weather, even though summer CAN be extremely beautiful. Today was so humid though. We were visiting friends on a farm. The kids had SO much fun. There weren't many animals around, but looooots of space and peace and quiet (except for the kids that is, they made noise enough for an elephant herd). And there were crackers and dips and chips and M&M and soft drinks and white buns and the like... and I had NONE of it!!!! Sometimes I'm exceedingly grateful for that stubborn streak of mine, when I stubbornly stick to what I said I would or would not do!! I think that's why I feel so devastated when I blow things and binge: I didn't stick to my word. I can't trust myself. My words and my actions don't match up. I greatly value honesty and truthfulness and hate it when I find myself lying because I don't have the discipline to control myself and stick to my word no matter the cost. yet today I did. And I'm grateful for it.
