The "i" Diet

It used to be called The Instinct Diet, which I like a lot better.

I'm on day 3. It's been rough. Last night I completely fell apart and ate an entire extra meal (brown rice, pakora, steamed broccoli, and saag paneer) at 9pm so I would be able to sleep through the night.

DH is being a champ about trying it out with me. But when I fell apart, so did he, so now we're both back to Square 1.

I need to make a list of things I will use to reward myself when I do stick to the diet. Here are my starting ideas...

Crochet for Bears to Wear
Berroco's new book on afghans
the new JD Robb mystery
The Weed that Strings the Hangman's Bag

Any other suggestions for me?

a skein of mini-Maiden to make myself a scarf (pattern unclear as yet)
Enough Cascade Ecological Wool to make Jared Flood's Girasole


  1. Anything can be on your list of rewards - as long as they're something that you want. How about the next size down in clothing?
    *wink* (I did not plan for the new wardrobe, and I wish I had!)

    Good luck to you! It's worth the struggle - I promise.

  2. For the mini maiden: the lacy kerchief scarf from Interweave. Works in all weights.
