Ice skating and walking around the park did not add as many steps as I expected today and I was ravenous when we left! I'm not normally a hamburger kind of person but that is exactly what I wanted tonight. I stuck to a small burger and some tortilla soup (I just realized I left that off the tracker!) They also had fried pickles, which I love. And a beer just goes perfect with a hamburger so I had a Shiner Bock also.
Even after all of that not so healthy food, I watched my portions, stuck to one beer and did really well on my overall nutrition for the day.
Plus I feel like I got in a lot of exercise even though the tracker didn't reflect as much.
The kids had a great time trying to ice skate. My 4 year old picked it up the fastest and he was going by himself pretty quickly. The girls and I were hanging out around the barrels in the middle of the ring. I'm very surprised that I didn't fall down considering I seemed to be picking up one child after another, while balancing on those skates myself!
Overall, it was a lot of fun and very relaxing!
