    I've been fighting off the cravings, but it did help yesterday. Mom made some gluten free chocolate chip cookies and I turned them down. Yes, I got a whiff of the chocolate and kind of wanted it, but determined that they were for Gabi. This is going to take some serious will power along with the high protein and high fat. Gabi has learned that she's going to have to hide this stuff from me. After having a little talk with her about this, she's decided to help me out a little bit.

    It's so nice when the people around us cooperate, isn't it?

    Yes, yes it is. I think after I explained to her that I didn't want to end up like my mom, she got the picture. She knows how much I hate going to the doctor's office just so they can fill me with whatever. She also knows how bad of shape my mom's been in for so long.

    Happy Memorial Day to all who served and gave up their lives for us!

    Today was a bit of an odd one in the morning. Mom managed to pull a ligament, so I didn't get as much sleep as I wanted, but it's all gluten free pan sauce..... Most of the rest of the day was chill and pool side. The end of the day was AWESOME! I got to see one of my former NCO's from 1/101st. Oh, it was great to see he and his wife and catch up! We went to a Mexican joint for dinner. This time, I managed not to munch on so many chips. That was partially due to me talking so much and laughing.

    Today
    B: Some whipping cream and sour cream
    S: Fried pork skin
    L: Uhmm, I think this constitutes my lunch.... 1 hot dog, 1 1/2 brats, 1 sausage. Before that I had a few slices of liverwurst.
    D: Ruby Tequila's Beef Fajitas with Mexican Rice, small scoop each of guacamole, sour cream, shredded cheese, and pico. Not sure, but probably about 20 chips and some salsa.
    Drinks: Water
    Exercise: Swimming and playing with Gabi in the pool.

    Oh, I mentioned to my Dad about my new found joy in liverwurst. The omnivore turned vegetarian's main concern was whether it was grass fed or not and if I was eating too much. Hmmm, I wonder if he's gone back to eating meat..... I probably did eat too much of it over the past two days. It's good though. Oh yeah, bought some chicken livers! I'm going to try to make the chicken pate recipe that Mark has. Wow, those babies are cheap!

    Aaahhh! I'm making that pate today, too. We'll have to compare (experiences, not tastes, sadly.) My chicken livers were on sale, even. $1.14 for a pound, two ounces. If I end up loving this stuff, it will be great on the budget.

    Chicken liver is great. The only kind my kids kept asking for. Of course, I hid it well... LOL!

    Nice! I've got some stuff to make a blueberry snack that Mark has on here somewhere as well. It'll have to wait till tomorrow for me to make because my friend and his wife are in town for one more night. So, we're going to a local pizza joint. They do have a good selection of salads and what not. Hopefully I do okay with this tonight.

    Ah, you've been thinking out your options ahead of time. Always a good sign!

    Alessandra --

    Did you really have just sour cream and whipping cream for breakfast? :-) We amaze me at the stuff we eat! Kind of reminds me of what little kids do when they concoct things. I mean, I bet it was good, but I wouldn't have thought of it. Yeah, okay, I like cold pickled chicken feet, and I'm sure I could do them in the morning.

    Judg, I still failed. They had gluten free pizza dough, but you could only get it in one size. So, I caved because I didn't want salad. Could I have gone with the salad, yes. I got yanked in by the MoMo pizza. I failed.

    Pam, I did really have that for breakfast yesterday, lol. It was quick because I had to take Mom to the emergency room.
