State Fair Trip at Work

Friday, September 10, 2010

We did our yearly trip to the NM State Fair this afternoon. It was fun and I had decided to have 2 treats while I was there. This is the last time I will be going to the fair since I am moving to LA in a few weeks. I had part of a turkey leg and a piece of corn on the cob for lunch. That was the best choices for lunch as far as healthy choices go. One of my treats was at the pie shop. It is a really cool thing at the fair. They have different kind of pies on each day. They are baked by volunteers and the types change during the day as they run out of the favorites early in the afternoon. We almost always get something there since it is a tradition for many families for generations. This year I had a piece of Lemon Chess Pie ala mode. We went tot he Indian Village section but I did not have fried bread or any of the other cool Indian dishes. I did have a margarita in the Hispanic section. That was unplanned but I counted it in my food tracker for today. My evil treat was a fresh bag of cotton candy. It has been my favorite since I can remember. All of this was added to my food tracker. I am not proud of the results but I am using the last 2.5 pounds to goal to start to figure out how this is going to work after I am at goal. I will need to figure out how to handle the expected and unexpected events and the food that comes with them. It is a life long journey and I am on my path figuring it out as I go. I did my exercise this morning and will get up in the morning and do them then too. I think that is going to help when I do over indulge (on purpose and accidentally). At any rate I had a great time and ate pretty much what I had planned. Now I will live with and see what happens in the next few days. Life and learn I always say!

    Sounds like a lot of fun - I plan to go next Sunday (not tomorrow) with some friends. I'm planning in a roasted corn ear and maybe some teriyaki - absolutely NO deep fried junk (darn it).
