I had a great 4th of July. I didn't overindulge in food. I can't say that I made all healthy choices, but I kept it to a minimum. This is probably the only holiday where I don't have a means to go completely healthy. We are at a park where there is a big celebration that starts at 5pm. We listened to Salsa music and ran down water slides and jumped in moonwalks, got our faces painted, enjoyed mediocre food ( my 13 year old claims the gumbo was the bomb) and talked with friends who were experiencing the event for the first time. I kept my portions reasonable and I walked till my body hurt. We enjoyed the amazing fireworks and then spent the next hour and a half leaving the park with 10,000 other people who were trying to get across this little bridge to stand in line for an hour to get on a bus. We got home by 11:30 pm and crashed. I am an early riser, but, everyone else is sleeping in! I gotta love it!
