    I'm back at attempting the pre-SIBO test diet. Last night was sushi, and I had popcorn at the movie theater (Gangster Squad was fun). That's basically the one allowed snack. This morning, I had 3 eggs scrambled in the rest of my ghee, half an avocado, and a bowl of rice cereal in rice milk. I just finished the rest of my sushi now (had 12 pieces last night, 6 today). I'm still pretty hungry. I guess I could have the rest of the avocado. That's a "limited" food on the pre-test diet, but dinner is probably going to be rice and chicken so I need whatever I can get. I can't eat too late because I can't eat anything 12 hrs prior, or drink anything other than water.

    Time for some KE tea. The neti pot wasn't very effective this morning.

    I'm breaking out a bit. Wonder if it's from the cereal/milk.

    what do you have to do to do the sibo test? Is it a stool sample kind of test?

    No, I breathe into a tube every 20 minutes for 2 hours. You collect breath samples so they can see if your gut bacteria is producing things it shouldn't or overproducing things it shouldn't, like hydrogen or methane. Seems like a stool test would be easier, haha.

    I forgot to mention, I've already gotten all the forms I need to file taxes. I'm not getting much of a return. I guess it's just because I earned more (total earnings increased by about 15% from 2011 to 2012). My return is less than half of what it was last year . I was hoping it would be a similar amount so I could put part in savings and part towards a loan. Now it is so small, it doesn't seem worth putting into a loan, but I guess I should.

    Small or not, it's worth it. It's that much that you don't have to come up with somewhere else.

    The cat is out of the bag re: engagement to my mom. Boyfriend was drunk at dinner & teasing my mom about buying me "a ring" but not specifying what kind. Then she got me alone and I thought he'd told her about it, PLUS he'd told her about some plans or something he had (proposal plans). So I told her how it had gone down so far. This is the first I've talked to her about David and my future. She seemed pretty excited .

    But no more insider info for her! It'll be a while anyway.

    I found something on the restaurant menu (for bro's 15th birthday dinner) that fit in the dietary restrictions. It was very good. I had sticky rice with it, which was fun to eat. I started the SIBO test about 10 minutes ago. I have a timer set for every 20 minutes so I can remember to breath into the tube and make a new breath collection. I'll get Boyfriend up sometime after 9 so he can shower and get ready to go shopping. It turns out, he's being kept on (for now) at the temp job, so he needs more shirts to make it through a full week without doing laundry. He has to wear dress pants and a collared shirt every day.

    In other news, I cannot wait to eat a banana later today. We are having a few friends over for Dirty Mexican night tonight and Boyfriend and I are going to experiment with my alcohol tolerance. After the breath collection today (can't drink anything during it), I will drink at least 6 glasses of water throughout the day, and at least 3 more after I start drinking. I tend to not hydrate at home, so this may help prevent my alcohol-headache immediately.

    I don't follow the forum rules. I swear a fuckload in this journal. I have a link to my blog & a referral site in my signature. I link to other sites as resources for other users, frequently. Acknowledging that, I'm not sure why people would have a hissy fit about just notifying another user about rules, in case they were unaware. Specifically, I find it annoying when people post a link to a recipe (of their own creation) and provide no other info. I write a blog, I know that it's NOT that much effort to copy & paste a picture and maybe some ingredients (if not the entire recipe). Maybe that's just me though, being tech savvy as I am. Whateverrrrrrrrrrrr.

    True, the rules are mostly not enforced around here, except when it comes to extreme (specifically directed) language or a big flame war. The little ones usually fizzle out on their own and the trolls get bored eventually. I still think it's important to at least make it look like you aren't just spamming us with your own website. Well-intentioned people can still spam!

    Despite writing about this, I'm not even remotely pissed. Mostly just confused. People get worked up about the oddest things.

    Nah, just a topic on another subforum. Some people got really riled up when Cori and I mentioned that self-promotion is against forum rules. It was silly. I don't mind people sharing their links, obviously, since I do it, but without at least an ingredient list or something, it just seems like spam.

    And the silly thing is that if they were to post a full recipe with pictures and say something like, "And if you like this I have more in my blog." I would go to the blog. If you just post a link I am not going to bother. It seems self-defeating to me.
