Nice time yesterday...worth the one pound gain

Saturday, February 23, 2013

So the annual chili festival is going on now for three days. DH and I had to go and support a friend of ours who was entered into the margarita tasting contest. There were 10 entries so we tasted all 10. Some were very interesting and the one with a slight almond flavor and some were like not so good with hot chili and honey. But fun just the same. DH and I walked around to many of the fun booths with really creative things. Then we left and DH wanted to go out to his favorite place for chicken wings. So I had one beer and like 4 chicken wings, a few fries. Then around dinner time (like 7pm) I ate the rest of the chocolates that my girlfriend gave me (4 pieces) and that made my stomach upset....haven't had that much sweet/sugar/chocolate in a long I ate saltine crackers for dinner So yesterday, aside from my heatlhy smoothy for breakfast, I ate junk the rest of the day. So even though the calories weren't too bad, the food was and the scale was up a pound. I am sure if I eat on plan today that will be gone tomorrow. But I believe now it's not just the "salt" but the type of food and beer is most likely a reactive food for me. Yesterday I only had one. It still didn't taste as good as usual so I didn't have a second one which I normally do. I am supposed to go to a Quinceañera (girl 15th birthday) party with my girlfriend today but I am going to pass. At first her DH wasn't going to go with her and she didn't want to go alone(it's her maid's daughter), but now her DH is going so I don't need to go with her. Just don't need to go and eat crap.
Do hope all my sparks buddies are having a great week end.
Keep warm for those of you in the cold!

    Looking fabulous. Thanks for sharing Sallie! You look so cute in that skirt! Love your outfit. I can tell you have been taking good care of you. Keep it up!
Sometimes we just have to say no to stuff like that. It is hard but at least it isn't someone you know. Glad you got to relax instead : )

    As part of my heritage is Mexican, (like 1/32 but a better part Latin!) I'm becoming more interested in visiting parts of Mexico. It's been too long. I know DSSECRETS would love to make the trip. After seeing all you've shared, Sallie, it keeps inviting me. I mean it's just a quick for over the Gulf!
As always, thanks for sharing!

    Great pictures, you look good! It sounds like a lovely day out and worth the gain. Back on track to day and it will all be gone.

    Thanks for sharing the lovely photos. Looks
like you all had so much fun. You will get rid
of the pound fairly quickly, I know. Good luck
trying to find what combinations of food disagree. emoticon

    Glad you had fun. You look so young in these photos!

I'm trying to keep warm but it's bitterly cold and grey in the UK at the moment. It's good to see sunny photos of warm Mexico!
