I feel a bit anxious today. I am not altogether sure why but I know it is food related. Breakfast was great and so was lunch. I have kept up with the water intake, so that is not it. I have finished prepping tomorrows dinner … I think the reason may lie there … with the corn bread. I think I messed up the ingredients for it resulting in too much mixture per person. I may let the kids eat this batch and make it fresh tomorrow. Man, I am so anxious and I can feel it churning like a whole load of butterflies in my chest and throat.

I had a thought. Maybe the two bananas are just not enough in the morning. Perhaps that is what is making me anxious and wanting to pick. Was a bit hungry today and had 2 coffees with soya milk and an apple. Booo!
