Week 3

Posted on: June 19, 2006

Lost another pound when I weighed in Saturday so I’m moving in the right direction. I wish it would come off faster though because it sure seemed to go on FAST!

In other news, I had an awesome weekend. We went to the demolition derby Saturday evening. It was a lot of fun and excitement. And, I again did very well bypassing all the sugary, fattening fair treats. It was very hard though because people would walk by us in the grandstand, carrying plates of french fries, onion rings, corn dogs, nachos, cotton candy, elephant ears and funnel cakes. And my own kids even made it hard on me by getting funnel cakes to bring home with them after the derby. I did well though and only enjoyed the SMELL of them, not the taste:)

Sunday was spent with my dad to celebrate Father’s Day. We had a nice dinner and good conversation. My kids and hubby went out for their own little Father’s Day celebration. they played laser tag!


Tonight we took the kids to the fair. It started here Monday and the kids have been asking to go since they found out. I was worried that I’d be so tempted by all the fair foods, but I did really well. I ate a big salad before we went. I passed by all the delicious smelling foods and only bought a diet soda. I really really wanted an elephant ear, but I passed it by. Tonight was harness racing. I’m not a big fan of it, but it was kind of fun to watch the horses zipping around the track.

It was also bracelet night (ride all the rides you want for one price) so the kids spent most of their evening doing just that. I don’t do carnival rides. They either make me sick or they are way to tall for my liking.

We probably won’t go back again until Saturday evening. That is the last day of the fair and my all time favorite is going on that night. The demolition derby! I guess you can call me a redneck at heart because for me the derby is the best thing to happen at the fair. Well, besides the food, of course:) I have never participated in one, but it sure looks like a lot of fun and I think it would be a great way to work off some frustrations.

My brother inlaw usually has a car to enter. I don’t know for sure if he has one ready for this year’s fair or not, but if so, I’ll be rooting for him to win. If anyone happens to go to the fair Saturday evening, just look in the front row seats of the grandstand. I’ll be the one yelling and cheering, wearing mud spattered clothes, with the biggest smile on their face:)

Week Two

Posted on: June 10, 2006

Well, hopped on the scale this morning and no loss for the week, but was pretty much expecting that. I’ve not done the best this past week. With the kids being out of school now for the summer, I’ve had to fix their meals and it is hard to stay away from the burgers and fries with them here since that’s what they’re requesting. I have already told them though that this coming week is going to be a healthier one. We are ALL going to eat more fruits and veggies and less junk. It’ll be better for them anyway.

I stepped on the scale this morning to a THREE POUND loss! I was hoping for more then that since it was my first week back on track, but hey, I’ll take it. It’s more then I’ve been losing so I can’t complain.
