A-Maize-ing


Don't want to get all dramatic on your #$$, but I've been eating like an Incan child being fattened for sacrifice.

If I could find room for even one more mouthful of corn (cornbread, Fritos, tortillas, corn on the cob. . .), I'm sure I'd fall on it with gusto. I know what I'm doing and I'm trying to stop. But over and over I'm startled into awareness AFTER numbing myself with carbs, usually some form of corn.

I was thinking of going hiking this weekend, but then again, maybe not.

Come here and go hiking with me! I could use a hike about now too. I have a dairy problem. Too many lattes or assorted varieties. And cheese. And sitting on my butt in front of this computer.

I can't tell you the last time I ate a fruit or vegetable. Can't tell you when next I might, either, pretty happy with the all-carb diet (and coffee).

It's called comfort food for a reason, you know. Nothing wrong with comforting yourself now and then. ;-).

Wish I had some useful advice for you. But my good cheer comes from the fact that I'm already too portly for the Incas to throw me into the volcano.

Do the hike, though. Always a good thing in the fall.

I have been stress eating too lately. I call it my feeding frenzy, and I am trying to figure out why it is rearing its ugly head now. Numbing myself with carbs. is exactly what I do, and I hate it. I do know that this will pass, if I journal, talk to my friends about it, get out and walk or move and trust in me. This will pass!

I know this is too late for the weekend, but one of my favorite things to do is hike my ass off to get my blood full of all good things and to clear the cobwebs, then go home and eat Ben & Jerry's - a whole pint of my current favorite. I believe that's what's meant by balance!
