After class I decided to start right that afternoon. I had made up my mind and didn't want to do one more night of eating junk. So that's what I have been doing. It was difficult at first which every new diet is but it didn't really help being home with the kids and around food all day. It has been a little easier to be here at work and busy. The National Baby Food Festival was in town last week as well and usually that would warrant a trip to the ol' elephant ear stand but not this year. I took the kids down for an afternoon with my parents but we didn't treat ourselves to any Carney creations. Not only did I save 1800 calories but I didn't get any STD's from a dirty Carney stand! Yeah me! Cayman liked watching the other kids ride rides but wasn't very interested in anything but her grandma and swinging on the swing set. It was nice. On Saturday the big parade was happening so we headed down and met up with my parents once again for a kick ass parade. I don't know about parades in other towns but they might as well call this the candy parade because holy shit, my kid was bombarded with tootsie rolls and so much garbage! My mother sat with her and literally every float/car was a politician with crappy candy and a "vote for me!" The kids were like rabid sugar fiends on the side of the road just waiting for their next fix. And to top it all off, a lot of the time they throw this hard candy towards you. Like, throw it hard. So you can be pelted with your next yummy treat. Cayman doesn't really get into candy so she was fascinated with all of this Halloween like atmosphere. But wouldn't you know, when Ronald McDonald came by on his convertible McDiabetes car she screamed out, "Wonald Ma-Donald!!!!" How the hell does she know who the he is?! I may be Fatty Boombatty but we seriously have not been to a McDonald's in a long time. She doesn't even like the food when we go. Play land she likes. McNuggets she does not. And in defense of the television she likes Nick Jr so we don't see a lot of commercials. I don't know where she knew him from but holy shit was that scary. They probably have him in school or something? Learn your ABC's with Ronald!
Overall, I had a great week and am feeling pretty good. I got my workouts in, my husband has been very supportive and I am figuring things out. I weigh in tomorrow and will post my first week picture. I'm hoping for a good number!
