    Fried pickles? I didn't even know such a thing existed. It kind of boggles my mind the things people think of frying...

    Don't worry, Ecks, she didn't say her cup size went down, just her bust. It was probably back fat. Same amount of boob, just less distance to go to get to it!

    @judj Ever heard of deep fried mars bars? That's a staple food at festivals around here... Never tried one... Not sure I would... Now snickers- that would be harder to say no to!

    @sabine I love how you are feeding into my terrible terrible joke... Yay for less back fat! (or as it's sometimes called, back boob!) front boob is the way to go!

    (sorry alesse for taking over your journal!)

    Ecks, I think I have heard of them. Never seen one. Never want to taste one. I'm terrified I might actually like it...

    Around here, it's beaver tails, essentially a flattened-out doughnut or a deep-fried pancake. Also known as elephant ears in some places. I had one once as a kid and enjoyed it, but have never had one since. Being super cheap and too tired to go to festivals both have their advantages... LOL.

    Ecks, it's okay to hijack my thread once in a while Lol, Sabine is right, it was just back fat! I think one more size down to a 34 would be perfect anyway. It's what I was in high school and I was in pretty good shape then.

    OMGOSH! So worn out from today! I'll have plenty of pictures to post once I get them all uploaded. To be honest, I'm not exactly sure of everything I ate today, but I'll do my best. I know I woke up hungry, but that's because I had a small piece of brisket from a brisket burrito (terds cheated me out of the rest of my meat!), then decided to cook up like 4 slices of bacon when I got home from dancing last night.

    I completely killed any idea of trying to get a full eight hours of sleep before going to church this morning. Of course, that meant I was late picking Gabi up from Mom's place and getting to church. Ugh. I needed this morning's sermon and it hit me in the gut. Good stuff, true story.

    One of the guys from my Sunday morning group suggested that a whole bunch of us get together and go to Palo Duro Canyon (PDC) to hike and hang out. I LOVE this place! It was great to get out and be in a place that's become like a mini spiritual retreat for me. I don't have the ocean anymore, so this has to do. Did I mention I love this place?!

    We took on the Givens Spicer Lowry trail and went out probably about 1.2 miles, so total hike was 2.4. Then we hit up the waterways! Fun stuff every time. We got to waterway 6 and almost didn't get in because of the stench from the standing water. Thankfully, some of our crew noticed that a little further down we had running water. Oh, this is where our, I mean my, day turned a little fun. So, we had some river rocks and I wanted to get my grokette on! Yeap, I threw a few of them. It was awesome, but also funny. I picked up the first one and threw it overhead. Then I realized some of the mud slide down my back and into the back of my shorts! Awkward, yet funny!

    My mom, she's awesome. I told her we would show up to Sunday night DiTommaso dinner a bit hungry. She cooked up some seriously great food. Meatloaf stuffed with veggies and bacon! Zucchini, green onions, and yellow squash on the side. I did nosh on some quinoa pasta covered with pesto sauce. SO HUNGRY! We had some snacks on the trail with us, but we had so much fun playing today!

    B:4 slices bacon, sauteed spinach and goat cheese
    L: Smoked turkey, guac, tomato
    S:New Earth Chocolate Goddess Cluster (oh, you have NO idea how good these are!) about 3 of those. 1 serving of New Earth Walnut Inspiration, and about a serving of a Cashew, Almond, and Pistachio mix.
    D: Mom's awesome cooking
    S: 4 squares Lindt 85%
    Drinks: Water and some of mom's peppermint iced tea sweetened with Agave nectar.

    I see that I lacked on my veggies today and might have overloaded on tree nuts. Well, they did fuel the fun today! Thankfully, there was no shortage of bacon. Phew!

    Yum, I must meet your Mama. I too had an Italian family feast today, but there wasn't a heck of a lot that was grain-free: the zucchini and chicken scallops were breaded, flour or bread crumbs in the meatballs, and the pasta was definitely wheat. Fortunately people left me the lamb (just worked out that way) and I filled up on roasted red peppers, salad and sweet potatoes.

    The sermon hit the mark with me today too. Good stuff to ponder.
