|One of my favorite recipes, Turkey Shawarma, is ALLOWED! Happy happy.|
Today was a good day, oh my goodness! Got up early with the kids, made them waffles they didn't eat, went shopping with the whole family, found my daughter some good resale pants, read Richard Scarry with both children, visited my mother, went for a run, played outside. No major cravings. No major meltdowns. Today was just like a lovely, normal life!
Here's today's food:
|More "granola" (blueberries, almond butter, coconut flakes)|
and BLACK COFFEE
|Guacamole and carrot sticks|
|Random scramble (leftover veggies + 1 egg)|
|Tea & Seasnax|
|AWESOME dinner: Turkey Shawarma with requisite tomato relish, tahini sauce & pickles|
It occurred to me this morning that this is not the first time I've had whiny thoughts like "Not only can I not go without this forever, I don't even want to go without it for a DAY." This used to happen back when I was a bit of a smoker. The thought of having to Not Smoke would throw me into a panic. It was very depressing to consider a life without cigarettes, even though I knew that's what I had to do. I couldn't believe I'd gotten myself into a situation where even though my habits were unhealthy, I so WANTED to do them anyway. But that is how addiction works, right? Now, I'm not sure one can be addicted to a food category like white flour or sugar or whatever. Can one? But I find it interesting that I've run across this addictive thought pattern before. I recognize the voice of my inner drama queen who just can't handle not getting what she wants for more than a few hours. Now just you hush, lady. Only 16 more days to go.
