Sunday, May 31, 2009 — Morning weight 185.3 for a new 3 day total of 4.7 lbs.
My challenge today was a River Cats (baseball) game. My typical game menu is a hot dog and lite beer with a bag of kettle corn. I’ve also been known to have a Caesar salad, but almost always without fail – I have to have a bag of kettle corn, my weakness. I knew the smells would be everywhere, and they were and I had to have a plan before I even left home if I was going to enjoy the game and not give in to old habits.
I can’t stop doing the things I love just because I’m on afraid of falling of the weight loss wagon.
I had spoken to my TSFL Coach early in the day and he gave me a tip I used for the ball park and that was to make a shake and put it in the freezer for an hour. I took my favorite, the strawberry shake and turned it into slush. It hit the spot. In the parking lot after the game my husband and I split a couple of hard boiled dilled eggs (just the whites) and a Lemon Meringue Crunch Bar.
I am happy to report 2 victories: Mine & The River Cats. We both won today!
My lesson learned this afternoon is I can do this and live my life at the same time. It does take planning and a plan to be successful. When it comes right down to it, having a plan is a must for losing weight and investing. It all makes perfect sense.
PS: In total fairness to the gentleman selling Kettle Corn at the game, his nickname is “The Isle Dancer” because for an older person he can shake rattle and roll pretty darn good. I’m sorry your sales are going down starting today!
