for my Uncle's Funeral.
The ride up was fine, because I was well prepared
with my lettuce, nuts, vegetables, meat and no empty carbs!
We stayed at a Holiday Inn Express.
Woke up in the morning and went to the complimentary express breakfast.
Not too bad. Did have the powdered egg omelette and bacon
and did taste about a quarter of the irresistible cinnamon bun.
Also had two yogurts. (So a little off my plan.)
Then after the funeral, I ate at the funeral buffet table,
which ended up being leftover carbs from thanksgiving.
Even the turkey was soaked in gravy or mushed in stuffing.
I did the best I could, but was carb loaded for that meal.
When we got in the car to head home,
I had the overwhelming urge to eat Romaine Lettuce!
I shoved six leafs of lettuce in my mouth
as ravenously as I used to stuff cookies!
My body was crying out,
"I need lettuce! I gotta have some lettuce!"
I was so happy!
Never in my life have I craved lettuce!
Something good is happening!
