Today's lunch will be Tuna salad with Romaine lettuce, black olives, cucumber, a cherry tomato all drizzled with Extra Virgin Olive Oil. I have pretty much the same every day but the protein/fat might be Cheddar cheese or Feta cheese :)

Warmed up turkey Italian sausage with: 1T chopped tomatoes, a handfull of baby spinach, a few artichoke heart quarters, a half dozen black olives - seasoned with a sprinkle of Italian seasoning, and a dash of parmasan cheese (which I shouldn't have but it was only a little!).

(I really like Italian seasoning, but prefer not to have an Italian tomato sauce - I know, I'm wierd)

Broiled a ribeye that has been taunting me for a couple of days, with the problem that I wanted A LOT of it, not a meager 3 oz ... so I did the responsible thing, and melted plenty of butter on top to further boost the fat.

I'm getting used to this!

Oh, that's a good on-the-road (or even sometimes off) idea. I've stayed away from Subway just cuz - but that's a grand plan.

Ate at mom's retirement home and ordered pork loin with apples and rosemary. Asked them to give me the pork plain, but it had all been cooked together so I got it 'as is' with extra pork. Ate some of the cooked apples. Could.not.help.it. Delicious. Veggies were cauliflower and carrots. Made a large salad at the salad bar and put some sliced strawberries on it - and some coleslaw (which is always sweetened in the South of the US)

Mom's meal came with a piece of the most luscious cheesecake you can imagine. It was very light, very sweet, and for the first time in months I tasted her dessert. One small bite. One big bite.

I was really nervous testing after this meal - had a number of cheats in it. But - 1.5 hours after = 109. Like tossing a coin in a slot machine and getting a rumble of coins spill out - I'm taking the winnings and not playing again for a while.

Today after church we went with a big group to the local Chinese restaurant. I had wonton soup (my fave and I couldn't resist), beef and broccoli - had them hold the rice- and an egg roll. I ate the innards out of the egg roll, all the beef and broccoli and the wonton soup. I was worried because I knew the sauce had cornstarch as well as the fact that I ate the wontons. But an hour and a half later I was 121! I'll take it:D

Helping mom eat her meals every day, puts me in line for errant nibbles. Typically I don’t, but today …

Someone didn’t show up for their meal so the server offered it to me (I almost never eat there). Ate what I could off it: 3 plain shrimp, green beans, and a baked tomato w/ parmesan. There was no fat to be found. Mom had 3 desserts in front of her (I’m not making this up): sugar-free cherry pie, peach cobbler, and coffee ice cream. Obviously she couldn’t eat all that, so I helped. One bite cobbler (not good), 3 bites cherry pie (better), 4 spoons of coffee ice cream (scrumptuous!) Mom had the same.

Tested an hour after this bad pseudo meal. 112. Not bad! Am sure it’s lower now, not going to waste a strip, but for dinner will have some oily wild salmon, veggies drenched in butter, and some coconut oil fudge to get back on track.

112 when you tested, but think of what it could have been without the excursion.

When I know I'm going to be eating out, I put a small bottle of olive oil in my purse, and sprinkle liberally over all the food on my plate. The bottle is from another thing (a flavoring bottle), is plastic, and fits inside a plastic bag (to avoid problems if it should leak, but it hasn't yet).
