Monday, May 03, 2010      9 comments

So, today was not the best food day. I DID eat to hunger for the most part - no MAJOR overeating. This morning, I had cereal with milk. I loaded up with what I thought was some sort of whole grain, possibly dark rye cereal. It was CHOC... Read more
Hotel Breakfast
Sunday, May 02, 2010      3 comments

It's tricky logging food when most items are new, hardly anything is measurable and you have no control of the content of already prepared foods. Wuhaa, it's an uncertainty I'll just have to accept and deal with for the next week. The thoug... Read more

I Made the Connection

I had cravings this morning. The mid-morning snack did not make them go away. Lunch did not take care of them. I wasn't hungry, but I wanted something, ANYTHING. As long as it was sweet and delicious. It made me quite disappointed. I have d... Read more
