The County Fair - My First Blog Entry
Monday, August 31, 2009
Went to The County Fair with with my girlfriend and her family this weekend. It was a blast!! I went on something called "The Freakout" that was very fun, and a little scary. My girlfriend's niece is 3 years old, and an absolute riot. She's quite a daredevil, and said to me "If you scream, it means you're having fun!"
My girlfriend and I go to her parents farm about once a month to hang out and visit. It's really relaxing, but I realized this weekend how hard it is to eat healthy there. It was probably even harder this time around with the Fair and all. I made healthy choices for the most part--even skipped an Elephant Ear--but I still came out a little bit above my max range on Saturday--and one calorie over my range on Sunday! It's so enlightening having Sparkpeople, cause I probably would have thought that I was doing positively wonderful had I not tracked the food (and small amount of beer) that I had this weekend.
Going to work out and stay on track this week. I'm really looking forward to Labor Day weekend, as I am planning on making it a very LAZY one (except for hitting the treadmill and elliptical :o))
