    I actually was able to stay away from most of the "bad" stuff for 3 turkey dinners, since most of the deserts were store-bought. But I did have some of the shortbread cookies my sister made...using lots of butter, mmmm. For me, the cheats this week have been all the good Chinese food that I miss out on when I'm away at school at a small city. I been mostly good except for today...Dad had brought home a big container of all the dim sum items I used to love - deep fried sweet and sticky pork dumplings, bbq pork buns, egg tarts. I felt guilty at one point, but then took a nap and went to the gym and ate some more. But tomorrow, I'll be doing the 6-week cure (but only the first 2 weeks) to re-set myself. Plus, I decided to go caffine-free this week and this was my first day so I blame part of the binging on that, lol.

      Water weight? Whew! I hope so, that'd be GREAT news!! I hope it leaves soon! But I'll tell you, eating just a few cookies REALLY resets the desire to eat TONS of them.

      Cookiecaine get away from me!

          Diet-wise it wasn't too bad, and it helps (?) that I think I'm gluten intolerant.


          At my mom's: I was there for a few days. It was very easy to avoid wheat, but she buys into the low-fat-is-good thing so the meals weren't really satisfying. Thinking back on it, I should've snacked on cheese in between meals. One of her christmas gifts to me was a big box full of gluten-free baking mixes. Primal? Not really, but it was really thoughtful of her, and I'll enjoy them.


          At my dad's: I was only there for 9 hours or so on Sunday, so just one meal. Shrimp cocktail for a football game snack, but I don't like cold shrimp so I passed on that one, which was fine because I was stuffed by the end of the night. Appetizer: my stepmom made matzo ball soup, but she makes the balls and the soup separately so I just had the soup part (broth + veggies)...it was really good and reminded me that I should make more soup. Dinner: BEEF, green beans with butter, mashed potatoes, gravy, and rolls...I avoided the rolls of course. Dessert: there were a lot of things to pick from but I went with some vanilla ice cream with tarragon brandy poured over it.


          I haven't told them about PB yet. I don't see them that often and they already have to be mindful of gluten for me.
