Dense much? I'm choosing nutrient-dense...

Monday, October 31, 2011

Not so happy about my performance this weekend. I mention Friday night, but actually was find Friday. It's Saturday and Sunday I botched completely.

I have caught myself and am moving forward! Potential areas that kicked off this poor eating binge were identified though, so I will just keep swimming!

We had snow in October! We measured 6" in our yard.
The poor trees. I lost a major branch on the star magnolia, the top of another lead branch on the pink magnolia but luckily my prized crab-apple made it through (present from my boys one Mother's day).

Crab-apple tree on Sunday morning.

Sunlight through the trees.

    Sorry to hear about the sciatica. I am sure it helped push you toward the junk and the snow did not help--old party time. Old habits are hard to break and they sneak in ever so cleverly. You are at the hard part now. Maintaining. You can do it!!!

    Thanks for vlogging. It reminds me the stay the course. You look great so just keep it up. emoticon

    "... I was eating when I wasn't hungry. I was actively full!!" HA! Actively full? OK, Melly.... just moooove on!
    Thanks for listening, you guys. Today is day 2 back at it, and doing well. My sciatica feels a little better each day, too.

    I think the sudden change of weather is a trigger for many normal people... but I know a binge itself is a trigger for me let alone letting the shaky foods into my system.... but I certainly indulged yesterday in food I didn't need.

    I like the hair.

    Nanowrimo - it is my 5th year starting today. I have 220,000 words in my word bank and my goal is 1664 words every day for the month or more. I never heard anyone calling it a marathon before, but it certainly is. I take a minimum of bookings and really use SP to try and take health breaks frequently. My book involves a lot of research too so usually I do some preparatory work before starting each November but this year I am just jumping in to it. I will certainly be posting progress in all areas.

    I have some sciatica too. I think my bed is a culprate. Too saggy and not enough support. It may also be some hip arthritis. Keeping active helps but you are so right... all in moderation!

    Thanks for the support! I enjoy your vlogs! Justyna

    Sorry to hear about the sciatica - it's an awful affliction and I hope it goes away quickly. We don't have to worry about Halloween, it's Christmas here where all the temptation is in front of us. I'm practising every time I go shopping NOT being attracted to any of the "goodies" on display. It's very difficult to resist these occasions when the whole country is indulging in junk food! Good on you for picking yourself up and not letting a small deviation put you off track for the future.

    Ooooffff. sciatica. I have that every now and then. My Dad gets it a lot also. Hurts like a son of a gun sometimes, huh? Rest up and heal, and you'll be back at it in no time.

    Mmm, binge fests. I had a binge day yesterday. Tasted good, and honestly, I could have eaten a LOT more than I did. We have those evil Hershey Nuggets here again. I had four, but I really wanted to eat them all, lol.

    Take care.

    Melly, I'm so sorry about your binge-fest this weekend. That always feels awful afterwards.
    Keep fighting! You can detox...I'll pray for you to resist the devil.
    OH NO! You have pain on top of having to detox?...You have your challenges. You have 2 weeks of tough fighting to go through, but, YOU CAN DO THIS!
