Fed Up Challenge Redux – Day 8

Last night I dreamed I ate chocolate. Specifically these guys:


It was incredibly vivid as dreams go. I was walking through my apartment and saw a candy dish filled with these. I caved. Bit into it and it was like I was actually eating one. And then I woke up, disappointed with myself  that I had not been able to stay the course, and then of course, vastly relieved to find out I had been dreaming.

Food addiction is totally a thing. I am convinced now.

Anyhow other than having a very long workday I managed just fine. The crudite lunches are really really getting old. I need to look through my cookbooks and find some other alternatives, but I felt sated and I had a super long walk at lunch.

Breakfast: individual serving of brie, 1/4 dried unsweetened Bing cherries, coffee, multivitamin

Lunch: usual selection of crudites and hummus

Dinner: leftover sauteed summer squash with garlic, leftover potato salad, an orange, and some pork tenderloin.

Snack: 1/4 cup almonds and an apple

Dessert:  1 oz bourbon and an orange

I am feeling significantly less fatalistic than I was last night. Maybe it was the dream. Maybe it’s the fact that I slept 5.5 hours straight, woke up, and then slept 2 more. But I feel like I can do this.
