Well, another week down and I'm feeling better. For some reason, the stress cravings/temptations to binge have cleared and I'm clean for 3 days now. I'm down to 151 now, and not sure why. I haven't really been watching my calories (although I'm trying to make wise choices) or exercising more. In fact, I'm working out only 5 days a week now instead of 6. My real accomplishment this week is that I ran a mile for the first time in 6 years! And I wasn't really tired either! I could have gone farther, but since it was my first day at 1 mile, I didn't want to push it too much. So I walk 1/4 mile, then jogged/ran another 1/2 mile. That last 1/2 mile was increased speed each 1/8 of a mile. It's amazing how empowered I feel!

This morning, E and I woke up early and made Tosca's pumpkin applesauce muffins. My family LOVES them. It's the 4th time in 2 weeks we've done it. This morning we added walnuts for some crunch - very good addition. My only complaint is that they are very dense in the center - almost don't feel completely cooked. I don't know if it's the altitude (and I've adjusted the recipe for that already) or just the ingredients that make them so dense. No one complains so I guess I won't worry about it. I saw another muffin recipe in that book (applesauce oatmeal muffins) and since that is such a family activity on weekends (making muffins together), I'll have to try that one next. But first I've got to get online and find some no-sugar-added dried fruit. It just annoys me to no end that every dried fruit I can find (with the exception of raisins) have added sugar! Even in the health-food stores! I googled it last week, so that's where I'm off to now... looking into some of the hits to see who's got what. Yummy!
