it is not beneficial to my eating habits when I am there!
Wednesday, a friend of mine and I took our two boys to the Disney parks. We had a BLAST! When we go out there, I am a walker. I do not like to get stuck behind people and have to walk slow, so I am moving moving moving when I am there. They had a time keeping up with me. It was the first time we have gone just for Nick and a friend of his. Usually we are surrounded by girls because of Autumn. So I was glad we went. However, my mind associates Disney with food! Epcot is my favorite place to go and they have the best food and I AM A FOODIE! I did not eat nearly the amount of food I have eaten in the past (before my lifestyle change), but this time I decided to keep track of everything! I put it in my food tracker and HOLY COW! Almost 3000 calories. Now I walk a lot and I walk fast, but I did not walk that much!!!!! It will be another 6 weeks or so before we go back out there (it really is too hot!). I will have to make better choices or jog around the "world" at Epcot to negate what I eat. We really did have a great time and the boys stuck it out to the end!
Needless to say, I did not lose any thing this week. I actually gained a half a pound (even though I was negative 2000 calories for the week). Go Figure.
I am looking forward to the weekend. I pick Autumn up from camp today. We have missed her. I hope she has had a great time and I can't wait to hear all about it!
Well, I am off to school shopping with Nick. Only two and a half weeks until school starts!
HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND!
