The weather was boiling yesterday and it's expected for one more day. My mother ( bottom picture) is visiting from Denver and we are going to Santa Cruz today to spend a couple of hours on the beach. I've already warned her that we'll be taking a walk of the entire length of the beach, first, after all I have to get some exercise in and I'm not on vacation , then we can lay around.
I do have to go to work late in the afternoon so I have to make sure all of my food is ready, for the beach, and work, before I leave this morning.

I'm establishing the habit of not snacking, and I like it. I love looking at my daily menu and the list is short. I haven't been hungry early in the day, so I'm just "going with it". I accept the fact that it could change daily, so I'll eat when I'm hungry, so if it's early one day and late another the key for me is just not waiting until I'm starving.
I finished my book on binge eating, and read some good info that I'll be sharing in the next few weeks. Reading it has made me more aware of how I put myself in dangerous situations and hopefully how to better avoid doing that. The "bake sale" thing is my biggest challenge, for sure. I think because I don't neccessarily want to give it up. More on that another time though.
My weight is exactly where I want it, although it has taken great discipline all week to get it back. Discipline not to starve it down, but to eat it down.
