My day #48 of SP. Disneyland was lovely! I made it through without going off my "plan"!

Tuesday, May 01, 2012

Please read yesterday's blog, for the "Plan".

I had a great time with my friend! The first thing she wanted to do was go get a cinnamon roll. You know the huge ones! Tons of icing. I tried to talk her out of it, (she said, I'm starting my diet tomorrow). I of course told her about SparkPeople, I even wore my SparkPeople tee shirt, yesterday. She said "Oh my friend tried that, but it didn't work." So she got this 'thing' that made me a little nauseous just looking at it. It must have been at least 1,000 calories. 5" high & about 9" long. About the size of a brick, pooled in frosting. Before I would have one, too. (without icing, I don't like it). I bought a black coffee & used 1/4 packet honey & ate my Trader Joe's 100 calorie oatmeal/chocolate chip cookies. It was perfect for me. I am SO glad I brought things to help me stay on track.

She seemed OK that I didn't join in with her. I DID notice other people checking out my tee shirt. I felt little pangs of, I'm at Disneyland, I can over eat, just for today.... from people passing by. I am a person who tries not to judge, but I am curious how people can walk all over the parks (We walked 3.55 miles) & go on most of the rides when they are over 200 lbs. overweight. There were many people like this. I did also notice several people eating healthy, salads & etc. Disneyland has even added a gluten free products. You have to ask for them!

I am feeling so much better, being able to sit on the rides with my waist pack & not have to take it off! I DID have a few moments of wanting to go back to how I used to eat while there. Full chicken dinner, etc. But whenever I got those feelings, I would eat a few almonds or cashews. Or an apple. I had even brought Trader Joe's Kettle corn, 2 servings. I wanted to share them with my friend, she doesn't like it. So I was able to use it as a "being real" alternative.

This blog is about food, I have the exercise thing under control. We were @ Disneyland for 11 hours. I was tired. Today is a rest day for me, except Sheppard Pilates. It's been REALLY great! I am visualizing myself dancing around the May Pole, myself! I am VERY proud I made it so well yesterday. It could have been a disaster! I kept thinking of my 2 year goal & that helped me! Of course the chocolate covered frozen banana I planned for didn't hurt!!!! I KNEW I had a treat coming, so it was easier!

I am so thankful to Spark People for helping me find the tools to live my life, to the fullest. I am accomplishing dreams & goals & getting my life on the tract I WANT it to be! We are ALL very blessed to have this tool. I do wish I could help more of my "real time" friends, but all in good time, I think! In the mean time, my new family of Spark People friends is a GREAT beginning!

Thanks for your help!
Have a Sparkling Merry Month of May!

    I'm finding it easier to go to public places as well. As long as you pack something to nibble on, it's not so bad.

    Funnel cake is one of my absolute worst vices in the summertime. Last year I didn't even have ONE. I went to the fairs and beaches and it didn't phase me.

    Woo-hoo! We CAN do this.
