Giorno 68

My Dinner Feast!

I'm back home from my first day of jury duty. Tomorrow morning, I'll go back to see if I'm to be seated on a jury (or not). Que sera, sera.

I was up very early (by my standards) this morning. A wake up call of 5:30 am. But with the proper planning, I was able to stick to a pretty decent LC menu today. That's always good - when your schedule changes but you still manage to stay on course. It's like a test. And, I passed!

Harry, so you didnt buy my story, lol? Ok, you might be partially right. Actually, thats the first thing addicts do. No, the first thing addicts do is deny they have a problem. So I am passed that. Second thing addicts do is find excuses! Off course you are right, planning is absolutely a must for any successful transaction, ok almost any. But what about binge planning? At times I plan that as well. I dont know what it will take to curtail my disasterous food choices lately, but I hope not diabetes or a heart attack. I keep hoping against all hopes at times that I will stop before its too late. After all I was able to stop smoking cold turkey agter 15 years with no planning. i beleive it was devince intervention. May be I need Devine intervention to stop eating carb sugary junk. As a friend of mine sais, I didnt stop smoking, God took it away from me. May be, just may be one day I might say God took carbs away from me! Thanks for writing that article. I think it was very constructive and will help someone, who knows may be me too!

Wow Harry, don't spend that all in one place. LOL
That's what we get here in Illinois too.

Mr. V,

I hope you know that I wrote the article from a caring place. :)

I can relate very well to where you were coming from.

I just know that if I could make the change, you can too. I was a binger of sumo proportions! Believe me, it was frightening.

I just wanted to point out some things that I believe have helped me. Necessity is the mother of invention. I needed to find a way to break my destructive patterns. So, I put something together that seems to be working.

I have a lot more to say but my mind is foggy with jury duty fuzz. I must save it for another day, amigo.

I'm asking for my $15 daily wage in pennies.

It's my way of "sticking it to the man"! :)
