I had a great time at the state fair and only ate one corn dog all day!
Not that much walking because it was spread out over so many hours.
We would walk for 10 minutes then stop. Then we'd stand in line..
My grand daughter was in love with the hypnotist at the fair.
She got called up to the stage and had a great time.
She did the zip line three times.. it was crazy... but really fun...
I got home and hit my Spark People.

Here is a part of an article about weight loss I read this morning I want to share.
Burning more calories than you're putting in your body every day is one way to lose weight. However, only focusing on calories misses the larger and more important picture.
Eating 1,500 calories worth of cotton candy will surely give you different results than eating 1,500 calories of green leafy vegetables. Not to mention that it's easy to burn calories when you're having fun rather than pounding away on a treadmill if you hate running.
So while it can be beneficial to monitor your calories eaten and calories burned, also make sure that the food you're eating is nutritious and that you're enjoying the exercise you're doing so you'll stick with it for good."
I skipped the cinnabon at the fair yesterday so all the walking and exertion made me feel good about myself instead of angry that I passed up a chance to loose.
