    Sauerkraut (sp??) And pickles... dinner of champions when at a race track with only pizza, sloppy joes and hot dogs to choose from!

    And yes, you spelled sauerkraut right.

    Jenn, maybe you could take something with you when going to the races? Prepare something nice that you can eat cold, like a BAS, or egg muffins or so? So you can eat tasty and healthy stuff? I try to come prepared when going somewhere where I don't know if I'll have a healty alternative.

    Candy, the venues here don't allow us to bring in food or drink from the outside. They sell stuff there and want to force you to buy from them. Anything you bring in, if they find it, has to be thrown away. If you refuse to throw it away, they will refuse you entry. I try to eat a late lunch so I don't feel the need to eat at the track. But if I do eat at the track, I'll usually get a brat and some sauerkraut with no bun. That's what I did this weekend, anyway. Discovered that it is possible to screw up sauerkraut. Not sure how they did it, but it didn't taste good unless it was accompanied with a piece of brat.

    Can you ask them about a BYO fee? It would be irksome to pay to eat your own food, but they might be willing to consider it if you wrote a letter.

    I don't think that's really necessary, to be honest. I can simply eat before I go. Some tracks we can get away with sneaking stuff in. Saturday night I snuck in 2 bottles of tea for me so I could drink tea instead of water. They didn't check our bags. On Friday we went to a local track. They didn't check my bag (thankfully, b/c I had tea in it) but they did check my mom's bag. Our usual Saturday night track made my MIL toss out a half empty bottle of water once - but luckily they didn't find the snacks she was sneaking in for the kidlet types. After a while you learn which tracks follow their procedures and which ones don't and can sneak food in if you can... but as far as I'm concerned, it's easier to just eat before you go - or make requests for a burger with no bun, etc.

    My SIL ordered the PB to her kindle and started reading this weekend. She's starting out small since she's not done reading yet. Her breakfast this morning was strawberries and walnuts. Pretty good breakfast, I think. I don't think I could get away with it given the sugar in the strawberries and how I react to sugar, but she's just starting out and as far as I'm concerned, that's a rockstar breakfast! She invited me to join her on a 5k in June. We're gonna walk it and take our kidlets with us. Well, I'll take DD since she's little and will be content in a stroller. DS will probably stay home with DH. He would not be ok with walking 3 miles, and he has days where he gets "tired" riding his bike for our 1 mile walks, so it'd be best to just leave him at home, I think. The 5k is a United Way charity event, so we'll be doing double duty - taking care of ourselves and taking care of the less fortunate.

    I'm restarting/continuing my leptin reset today, but I'm not going to aim for such a low carb figure. I think that's what set me up for the binges last week. I'll just eat my protein and eat my veggies and see what happens. Kalli is making great strides in her journal and I can't wait to feel the same. She has introduced gelatin to her regimen and says she's sleeping really well now. I think I'll look into it. What's one more thing?? lol

    I'm tired today - understandable. I had another weekend of poor choices - high sugar content, wheat, likely some PUFAs. On the good news front, though, Mt. Dew is starting to taste kind of icky. Not icky enough for my taste buds to overpower my sugar addiction, but icky enough still.

    Wearing my Dr. Scholl's Fast Flats today. It feels so odd to be "barefoot" at work. They're worth the $10 b/c they're uber comfy, but I wonder how long they'll last wearing them outside in the parking lots and what not.

    Anyhow, I have an appointment with Dr. Torture today to work on my hip some more. Foot feels great, but ankle is still stiff first thing when I have been resting for a while. She says this will only take 4 treatments and I'm inclined to believe her b/c I do feel much better now. Foot pain is 0 and sciatic pain in my hip is minimized. Didn't have any hip pain this weekend or today so far. My neck hurts pretty badly though. I can't turn it all the way to the right and might ask her to adjust it/work the muscles.

    I gotta jet. gotta make a potty trip before I head out to see the doc. Have a nice one, ladies!!

    Oh Good Gravy that woman kills me! She worked on my neck today b/c it hurts to turn to the right. YOWSA!! I expected to get an adjustment and instead she did some deep tissue work on my neck, shoulder and pec muscles! Ow is all I can say about that...

    Then she worked on my nerve issues in my hips and legs. She said my right hip was worse than my left, so she started there. Ouch. Second hip was just as bad. The worst was when she was releasing the nerves in the backs of my knees. She joked "you must be having such a good time! There can't be anything else you'd rather be doing". I responded with "childbirth comes to mind". Seriously, it hurts that badly to have triggers removed. But I'll feel like a million bucks tomorrow!
