Today my calories are pretty low. I'm at 732 and it is 7pm and I am not hungry. I think that I will probably get home around 10pm tonight and have a small snack and go right to bed.

Tomorrow is "spike day", which is good since I have planned a big day of eating. My friend Ashley and her boyfriend are coming over for the 4th. We are doing burgers and baked beans and all sorts of stuff.

I made a gluten-free ice cream cake!

I packed the bottom and sides of a spring-form pan with a crust made of cocoa crispies, butter, and marshmallows. Then I loaded it with Mayflower Rocky Road ice cream, which is soy-free, peanut-free, and gluten-free. I made a layer in the middle of Hershey's Syrup and Enjoy Life chocolate chips.

It will all be topped with Light Cool Whip, marshmallows, chocolate chips, and chocolate syrup drizzle.
