Friday we left for Santa Cruz beach boardwalk and had a great time. I packed food to take with us for the kids to eat so we wouldn't have to buy snacks, and then some food to have at my dads when we stay the night. Needless to say, since we had four teenagers with us, I packed for them. The foods I packed were muffins from Costco (huge), chips, brownies, almonds, water. At the boardwalk you are assaulted with junk food at every turn, just like at the fair. Long story short, I did not eat that great Friday or Saturday. I ate some brownies, I had a corn dog, I even shared some garlic fries with hubby. Yep, I admit it and I take full responsibility for the choices I made. Did I have to choose junk? Nope, they had semi-healthy food there, but I just didn't want it. I'm trying hard to keep it healthy and only stick to non-processed foods, but when I'm out like that, all good thinking goes away. Thank goodness I have no plans for going anywhere like that again this summer :)
Today I am back in the game. So far I've had an egg white omelet with a small amount of shredded cheese, a glass of fat free milk, and a few almonds. I will be having chicken breast for dinner and a large salad with chicken on top for lunch. I also plan on having some cottage cheese and a yogurt later and some fruit. That should cover the days worth of food for me today.
Tomorrow I plan on going out and running some more. I'm thinking that maybe I can get into the whole running thing now. Maybe doing Insanity has made that difference for me. I had to make my body do things I never imagined it could do, and I loved doing it. Walking just doesn't cut it for me as much anymore. Who would have thought LOL
May I just take a moment to say how much having a support group means to me? These women keep me going and we are enjoying it! Read their blogs for inspiration...you can find them on my sidebar.
~Thank you ladies!!!
