Hi there, I don't mind you in my thread, you can be zen and laid back here all you like! :lol:
I've been doing pretty well, except for ... parties. Party food that you graze on, that's hard to track. And delicious. And flavor-full... because it's anti-social to nose-block instead of talking to people! So my overall intake has been high in the past week (3 events). My weight's steady.
I stuck to really nutritious food, but I lost control of portions. Dried cherries, Greek olive tapenade, roasted vegetables, cashews... etc. YUM!
Oh and a super sweet, delicious pumpkin pie that I made. I put less sugar in than the recipe called for but the pumpkin -- a Fairytale Pumpkin
-- must have been really sweet already. This irresistible treat showed me once again that eating sugar ultimately makes me cranky and depressed. :x ... I felt much better later in the week with my party indulgences that weren't simple carbs. That was a good reminder.
I'm feeling pretty good overall, trying to cultivate that unconcerned state of mind, and to be active because it feels good.
