Day 275

Tuesday, September 25, 2012

Just got back from total mayhem at Chuck E Cheese and our grandson's 4th BD party. That place is pure bedlam!!!!! I did notice that everyone who was employed there was very, very young!! I guess they can take it!?!?! Our grandson loved it and so did another little girl who was having her 5th BD party there. That's the most important thing. Here's the deal....talk about FOOD!!! They had so much food there and after we left I felt like I had truly passed the the test. The only thing I had there was water!!!! Water!! DH said the bread sticks were the best he'd ever eaten, there were several pans of pizza on every table, a big salad bar (no fat free dressings), diet fountain sodas, crackers, cupcakes, desserts - you name it - they had it. Every intake sin known to man. None of it - not one bite was a temptation. I made a point of eating something healthy that I made at home before we left. Came away from it so thankful that I didn't eat any of it. All I feel is gratitude for not WANTING any of it. There are no feelings of deprivation or guilt for caving in. It's such a good feeling. Another sweet victory. emoticon

It was a jam packed day but I got in over 7 miles walking and 98 min. of cardio. No strength training was scheduled for today. Need to get a good rest tonight, so will sign off for today.

Thanks a bunch for stopping by today if you had time. And yes, the foot injury is now healed and it's good to go. So thankful for that too. Hope your Tuesday was fabulous!!!! emoticon

    Oh I have to remember back to when my kiddos enjoyed having a party @ Chuck E Cheeses when they were little. LORDY, If you ate everything there you would be in a carb-induced coma for a decade! Sounds like it hasn't changed much since then! Glad you had a plan, worked it AND worked out with lots of walking!

    Happy belated birthday to your grandson.

    I am so glad that your food injury is healed.
    You are an inspiration at the party. I would have had to have one breadstick. You amaze me.

It is wonderful that you didn't WANT any of it ..good to reward yourself at home with healthy choices. emoticon emoticon emoticon How inspiring!! I should "take a page from your book".. I never would have had been able to resist a piece of pizza..So glad that you didn't feel deprived. Peggy
