Friday was a miserable day. Felt pretty awful, but I had my eating under control.
I went out for lunch with my husband, selected a restaurant with a salad bar, but it turned out to be pretty lame; all I could eat were a few raw vegetables and sunflower seeds - there weren't even any tomatoes! When I returned to the office, I added protein I had brought with me. I started feeling a little better physically in the afternoon, as my digestive system began working again, but I was still very tired. I left work early and hit Walmart, where I discovered Whole30-approved Sunbutter. I should not have brought this into my house on such a low mental day, as I ate just over half the jar. And I simply cannot explain it. Anyone who has binge-trigger foods should understand that your brain simply ceases normal functioning at these times. I hate it.

This was spent at my company's all-day retreat. I knew we'd be provided with fruit & rolls in the morning, a Mexican buffet at lunch, and that I would be joining friends in the bar afterward to meet a pal's new boyfriend (this meant I'd be home after 7, so supper had to be covered as well). So I simply brought along quite a bit of my own food, and it worked out just fine!
