Memorial Day Update

It's been a few days since I've posted and I wanted to check in and be accountable. My eating has been really good the past few days. It's funny, after I had the 3.5 pound drop overnight, I've been so much more motivated to stay on the "straight-and-narrow low carb road" and not vary from it.

Been doing a lot of eggs, chicken, some red meat, lots of good veggies -- turnip greens, green beans, cauliflower, broccoli, cabbage, cucumbers, fresh spinach -- I may be turning green one of these days!

Last night we went over to our best friends' house. They grilled out steaks, and so I had a nice filet and a big plate of salad. I passed on the baked potatoes, corn on the cob, and garlic bread. However, I had to have a couple bites of the "chocolate cobbler" with ice cream. It was VERY sweet...I think it made my teeth hurt! So a couple bites was sufficient.

I want to get to Costco sometime in the next few days and get some more of their yummy marinated salmon fillets. They come six to a box, individually wrapped and frozen, so it gives us three meals. And they're a great price. They're quick and easy to fix on a weeknight, too.

Hope everyone has a wonderful holiday. I'm really thankful for the freedoms we have and enjoy every day in this country. And I believe we are "standing on the shoulders" of countless men and women who sacrificed so much for us to be able to have the lives we do. God bless the USA!
