It is amazing to me how I can have all the plans in the world and then one thing leads to another and my days are gone before I know it.
Let me do a little update..after many discussions with multiple doctors I decided to go on a 21 Day Elimination Diet...that meant NO gluten, caffeine, dairy, soy and alcohol with the exception of a glass of red wine in the evening as prescribed by Dr. Steve. I began that journey on Monday, May 26. The hardest thing for me to give up was dairy and gluten. I had a couple of slip ups along the way...one day we were out running errands and I was starving and my blood sugar was going wacky..we stopped at Rocky's down by the Landing..it is a small Italian restaurant and bar...they brought us a basket of French bread and butter...I was shaking so bad I scarfed down 3 slices of bread & butter, drank lots of water w/lemon (my beverage of choice whenever we go out) and then had a grilled chicken & spinach salad with a raspberry vinaigrette dressing..tasted great but not 20 minutes after leaving the restaurant...not so good. Umm was it the gluten or the dairy? Not sure but definitely need to be more careful.
Another day I really wanted a chili burger from Billy Gail's Cafe and so we along with Ronnie & Teresa, our Assistant Managers went there for lunch. I ordered my chili burger minus the cheese. When it came I took one half the bun (it comes open faced) and set it aside...the other half was under the burger and pile of chili....it tasted so good and I had no problems so that was encouraging. This is what Ron and Ronnie had~ one giant pancake and Ron had a couple of eggs on top of his. Those pancakes are huge. I did sneak a teenie bite of Ron's...it was delicious. You would think it was like a crepe but no it was a buttermilk pancake...just so big it hangs off the plate.
