Friday fair pics and some self talk
Saturday, July 23, 2011
Yesterday was Friday. Yay! I LOVE Fridays. Short work day for me, and the prospect of a whole weekend of fun sounds great.
Last night, I took a suburban full of teens along with my son to our county's fair. They had such a great time. They walked around, ate, rode the rides, saw animals, did their thing. It was fun for me to watch their enjoyment.
How did I do? Well, pretty well. I didn't want to eat fair food. I am trying really hard to make my goal, and eating fatty fair food, then having to ride spinning rides with my 7 year old doesn't sound like a good combination. So, I did opt for a small soft serve cone at the fair and two protein bars during my 6 hours there. I also worked out earlier in the day and DID work 4 busy hours at my job.
So, calories in for the day= about 1950
I am trying to do what others have suggested....Keep my deficit between 500-1000 a day.
I am also trying to keep my motivation and positive attitude in the midst of working so hard and not getting results I feel I deserve.
So, no fair food. Check.
Today's challenge: no birthday cake at the party I plan to go to.
In all honesty, I don't even crave bad foods right now. The thought of avoiding cake doesn't seem like the challenge it used to be. However, the frustrating part is that when I DO avoid the fair food and I DO avoid the birthday cake, I STILL see the same old result on the scale it seems.
Ok, positive... be positive.....
