Blah. I have eaten horribly this past week. The downside of having a great weekend last weekend is that I ate out a lot. I didn't really recover this week either. I hate that feeling of blubbery jiggliness. It somehow doesn't keep me from eating, though. The macaroni and cheese I made for Super Bowl Sunday is finally gone, so maybe that will help.

Heh. I like that- chocolate day. I beat myself up over a lot of things. It's just my nature.

Me too, Shy! I love chocolate and most sweet things, and if I have anything at home it is guaranteed that I eat it all within a few days (if that!).

My weakness isn't really chocolate (except next week), it's actual food. Chicken strips, macaroni and cheese, pizza, Chinese....in other words, FAT. I love food with fat in it!

I read a heavily-researched book last year called "Overcoming Overeating" and he talks extensively about our biological programming to eat fat, sugar and salt, esp together.

I downloaded an app yesterday that grades foods and tells you what's good and bad in them. I scanned a bunch of stuff in my pantry and I'm amazed at how much of it has MSG in it. I must be addicted to it or something. I tried to do better when I went grocery shopping today. I didn't buy anything with a grade under a B- and none of it had MSG in it. Of course, I still have all that soup in my pantry that I can't afford to let go to waste.

I'm gonna try to walk today for the first time in a month. My pulled muscle hasn't hurt in a week, so hopefully I won't injure it again.
