I said I would come back and share what I chose to nosh on at the fair, and so here I am:
Before leaving the house, I did just grab one of my Nutrisystem cinnamon rolls for breakfast. They are small and low calorie, but I didn't want to forego breakfast completely.
At the fair, we did alot of snacking, but we would buy an item and share it amongst 5 of us, so you basically got a couple of bites & that was it.
Chocolate-covered strawberries (3)
Mointz Ball (1) - meatball wrapped in bacon roasted in bbq sauce
Chocolate/Vanilla ice cream cup (free sample - only 1/4 cup size)
BBQ wings (2)
Pronto Pup (1/2) - best corn dog ever
Chicken Club Ranch wrap (our main meal)
Pineapple Whip in waffle cone - ice cream/sherbert made from real pineapple
For being at the State Fair, I feel I really did pretty good... alot better than I thought I would! I can't begin to figure up calorie counts on all of that, and I'm sure I went over my allotted calories for the day... but I never stuffed myself, and I didn't leave feeling deprived.
One thing I did splurge on is that I shared a frozen margarita w/ my future DIL, and I had a 6 oz Sangria later in the day. Hadn't planned on those, but oh well, they sounded good. I did stick to water for all of my other drinks during the day.
On the upside, we walked a BUNCH!!! A total of 11.96 miles during the day, so I would think that alot of the extra calories I had were walked off throughout the day!
I will be doing my "official" weigh-in for the week tomorrow, so I guess we'll see where my splurging got me then...
