Fair Feasting...

Sunday, September 09, 2012

I said I would come back and share what I chose to nosh on at the fair, and so here I am:

Before leaving the house, I did just grab one of my Nutrisystem cinnamon rolls for breakfast. They are small and low calorie, but I didn't want to forego breakfast completely.

At the fair, we did alot of snacking, but we would buy an item and share it amongst 5 of us, so you basically got a couple of bites & that was it.

Chocolate-covered strawberries (3)
Mointz Ball (1) - meatball wrapped in bacon roasted in bbq sauce
Chocolate/Vanilla ice cream cup (free sample - only 1/4 cup size)
BBQ wings (2)
Pronto Pup (1/2) - best corn dog ever
Chicken Club Ranch wrap (our main meal)
Pineapple Whip in waffle cone - ice cream/sherbert made from real pineapple

For being at the State Fair, I feel I really did pretty good... alot better than I thought I would! I can't begin to figure up calorie counts on all of that, and I'm sure I went over my allotted calories for the day... but I never stuffed myself, and I didn't leave feeling deprived.

One thing I did splurge on is that I shared a frozen margarita w/ my future DIL, and I had a 6 oz Sangria later in the day. Hadn't planned on those, but oh well, they sounded good. I did stick to water for all of my other drinks during the day.

On the upside, we walked a BUNCH!!! A total of 11.96 miles during the day, so I would think that alot of the extra calories I had were walked off throughout the day!

I will be doing my "official" weigh-in for the week tomorrow, so I guess we'll see where my splurging got me then...

    I felt like I did fairly good (no pun intended)... MUCHO better than I've ever done in years past!

    I think last year I ate entire portions of all of that stuff by myself! emoticon

    Thanks for sharing!! I miss going to a big fair. I don't even go to the fair here in years as it is too hot for me. This would have been the perfect year to go as it was cooler this year.

    Thanks again! The fair food is what I miss most if all!!
