I survived a harrowing journey through the land of temptation. I spent the afternoon at the ballpark.
The stench of the garlic fries was enough to put me off them, but the mini pizzas smelled heavenly as they walked past me in the hands of skinny people. How do those people eat all that stuff and not gain weight?
Then there were legions of hot dogs with all the trimmings, chicken tenders with dipping sauce, and cheeseburgers.
After prowling the park, dodging the cinnamony churros, luscious ice cream sandwiches, and cotton candy, I found a single stall at the back selling chicken over beans and rice. It even had a vegetable salsa on top. 380 calories!!!
It was tasty, but I still wanted nachos. I made it home and made a healthier batch with better chips and reduced fat cheese.
I'm proud of myself for getting through this, but I think I'll avoid the ballpark in the future. I only have so much willpower.

At a camping/hiking trip this past weekend, I helped out the group by taking our big 5-gallon water dispenser over to the spigot a hundred feet away and refilling it. Filling it was easy, but it was a real struggle to haul the thing back to our camp with all that water.
My husband did the math and figured out the the nearly full 5-gallon container weighed about 37 pounds. Coincidentally, that's how much weight I've lost since joining SparkPeople.
To think that the heavy weight I struggled to carry at the campground was the same as the weight I'd been lugging around for the past years on my body!
Now I want to go out and lose another 37 pounds. Think how light I'll feel then!

We searched for anywhere within 200 miles where we could find some sun this weekend. No luck.
So, how to be active this weekend?
Option 1: go for a hike anyways. Our club has a hike that's mostly in the woods, so maybe it wouldn't be too soggy
Option 2: do a workout video and stay in
Option 3: watch the clouds carefully and go for a quick run between showers
Option 4: go to the gym
I went for a run in the rain -- ended up soggy but it was a good workout.
The next day I decided to do the hike. To our great surprise it never rained.
I'm leaning toward options 1 and/or 3
