After my blog on Friday, I was determined to make it a good weekend. I was! Swear. Then, I got a text from hubby. He was going to be off on Saturday, and did I want to go to the state fair?
Well duh - of course! I've never been, and was super excited to go to my first fair. I was like a little kid, dragging hubby by the hand and ooh'ing and ahh'ing over all the booths, fried foods, games. I wanted to do everything! We walked around for a bit, and checked things out. Rode a ride, checked out some things, and it was time. I really, really wanted to try a fried oreo.
Yep, I sure did. They had all kinds of things, fried butter, fried twinkies, fried anything you can think of. The fried oreos came in orders of 5, 8, or a full dozen.
But wait - I only wanted one! Hubby said he'd try one, or a few bites, but didn't want more than that either. What was I going to do? I could picture it: I'd eat all of it, being so expensive I didn't want to waste any money. Bleh. I could only imagine how I'd feel after that.
Then I heard a girl in the line behind me say 'Who would EAT that?!' I think she was talking about the fried pineapple, but I'm not sure. Either way, I thought to myself - she's right. Who WOULD eat that? What am I doing here? I was next in line, so had a quick decision to make. Turned to hubby a few feet away and told him I'd changed my mind. He shrugged and said OK, so I figured he didn't want to try one that bad, and we moved on. I grabbed a slice of pizza instead, and although it wasn't the best of choices, it looked better than my other options - giant corndog? Funnel cake? Fried - well, anything?
Yep, I said no to the fried oreo. I thought I wanted one, since I had heard of them last year, and I thought some such food would be necessary to complete my fair experience. Thankfully, I was wrong, and walked away pretty darn proud.
(Really? A fried oreo? Just...why? Why?! Thinking of it now, I'm baffled I ever thought I wanted to try one.)
Moving on, I've joined Virgin Health Miles that my work is offering for us. It's a lot like SP, with a feed, friends, challenges, tracking, etc. Except we get paid for it.
Oh yeah! They also gave us a free pedometer. We can upload our steps each day, few days, whatever, and the more steps we do, the more things on the site we participate in, the more points (equaling $$$) we get. I got my pedometer sometime this weekend, and hubby left it on the counter for me this morning. (Oh, where was this when I did all that walking at the fair? Lol). I'm wearing it clipped to my shoe today, and I'm excited to see how it goes.
Ladies - how do you wear pedometers when wearing a dress?
I also have to hit the grocery store today, and I'm trying to look at it as an opportunity to make all new, good choices, instead of the stupid chore I hate lol.
Now, to do some SP reading to get inspiration for meal plans for the week...
Happy Monday everyone!
