Great Time at Disney's Animal Kingdom

Sunday, April 07, 2013

We had a great time yesterday at Animal Kingdom. For lunch we ate at Tusker's Restaurant in "Africa". We ate with Micky, Goofy, Donald, and Daisy, who all signed Natalie's autograph book and Natalie got to dance with them! An african buffet was served. I decided to indulge within reason. I had grilled chicken, baked salmon, and spicey tofu with eggplant. I had pearl couscous flavored with basil and tomato-carrot couscous, too. I skipped the breads but chose a strawberry mousse for dessert. I really do want my splurges to be with my family, not by myself. So I did that. May have overdone it. I was up over 3 pounds (after 3 days in a row of 126.something) to 129.8 this morning. I expect it is mostly sodium, so I'm drinking plenty of water and really watching it today.

I had to miss my Galloway group run in order to go, so I ran 10 miles by myself this morning before the kids came for child care at 11am. I'm not sure if I have allergies acting up or if the sweat and sunscreen/sweat that ran into my eyes are to blame, but I'm now feeling a bit sinus-y and dull headed. Bet I'll be fine by tomorrow!

    Sounds like a very fun time . . . except for the salt, does it to me too every time (but it's temporary, yes it is!!)

    I'm right there with you when it comes to sodium issues! I had and Italian salad last night - no salad dressing but some cheese - basically just veggies. Today I was up 2 pounds! I hate it when that happens but since I know the cause, I don't stress quite as much!

    Oh those sodium hits!! Especially in spicy African fare! But you have it right, might as well indulge with your family and not stress over it as you know you will get it all right back. That is just so awesome, up and doing a ten mile run yourself, getting to go at a pace you want to that feels comfortable, bet you enjoyed your solo time!
I hope you aren't getting an allergy. Living in a place where things are growing year round must mean a constant exposure risk.

    So glad your having a great time. Awesome run as well. Allergies are rearing their head with my sinuses too. Sodium is usually the culprit in 3 pound jumps like that (for me at least). emoticon emoticon

    You don't have any control over the sodium content of food you don't prepare yourself, so you're probably right about that.

    Fun!! Yes....sodium is most likely the culprit.
Nice could be the sunscreen/sweat combo...I get that sometimes, too.
