Arggggg! My new addiction.

Yup. Yup. Yup.

I'm addicted.  Not to Facebook but to one of their silly stupid games.

Are you on Facebook?  Come be part of my crew in Yoville.  
You get a job at the Widget factory where every 6 hours you check in & get coins.
Coins allow you to decorate your apartment in Yoville.

Oh no!  You better eat something because your energy is going down.  So head over to the diner, the beach or the night club.  You can buy energy at those 3 places.

CHALLENGE someone to either tic tac toe or Rock Paper Scissors and you can make another 200 coins every 24 hours.  If I max you and you don't max me you better gift me.  And don't give me another fire extinguisher.  I already have one. (thanks Pinktini!)

Rate my apartment, please.  That way I'll make more coins.

Right now I'm saving up for place settings in my kitchen where I have a retro 70's red fridge & stove, 50's table with 4 chairs & shag carpeting.  


I'm pretty sure it's 12 year olds and middle aged women (I'm 48) playing this damn game.  

I've taken a back seat to my 12:12 pictures.  I mean how many pics of me eating do you really want to see?  yeah That's what I thought.

You know that feeling how great you feel when you've lost weight.  You feel all clean inside & you think "Why don't I do this all the time? Why do I have to go off track and binge?"

That's what I'm going thru.

I feel great.  I feel healthy.  

My hair is thick & shinny.  My skin glows. 


I want to just be bad & binge.

But I can't.  

This is my health we're talking about.  

I binge I get sick.  I don't want to be sick.

So tonight for dinner I had a HUGE (like almost half the package) bowl of brown rice spaghetti. I threw in a couple of handfuls of spinach, olive oil, lemon juice, garlic and ate it all.

I think the servings were for 2-3 other people but they missed out.

So in my sick, convoluted mind I'm bingeing on food that  is ok for me to eat.  Just the portion is wayyyy outta control.  

Today's craving came outta nowhere.  Salted roasted cashews.

Can't do cashews because they're full of mold.  (Bet you didn't know that.  Same with peanuts & pistachios.  Dr. Claire told me once that she'll never ever have those 3 nuts ever again because of the high mold content.)

And since I've spent almost 3 months on the anti-candida there's no way I'm going to mess it up with moldy food.

So when I binge (like the big ole one person pasta feed tonight) I do it with ok'ed foods.  

This is a mind change for me.  I finally realized that when I cheat I'm not hurting anyone but myself and this was a HUGE realization for me.  Yeah. I know.  You've known it all along.  Sometimes I'm a little slow to the bus.
Oh and if you want something fun to watch go to & put in "Facebook in real life".  There's a bunch of very creative videos.

I did that last night! I made an enormous dish of wholemeal pasta and lean bacon and though I can eat lots of it on my diet it was like enough for three people. *scoff*

I best not try Yoville on facebook. I am already addicted to scrabble and tetris on there.... I was once addicted to the Sims. Not good.
