How have you been doing on your exercise goals this week? I have to admit that I've really been slacking. I only made it 3 of the five weekdays. :( I'll be leaving straight from work tonight and heading to my family reunion in a tiny town in the middle of nowhere Utah. I really excited to see members of my family that I haven't seen since last year. The reunion is always a great time.
It does however, come with its temptations. Temptation #1: My mom's potato salad. Normally, I would not be tempted AT ALL by potato salad but what my mom makes is truly heaven sent. It is definitely one of my favorite foods. Too bad that it is swimming in miracle whip and sugar. I have decided that I will eat a small portion of it. I only get it a few times a year and its what family reunions taste like. Other than the potato salad I plan to stick with fruits and vegetables for my sides and just a hamburger patty if that is on the menu.
Temptaion #2: Dinner in its entirety. The dinner menu seems to be just as heavenly. Each year my uncle makes AMAZING dutch oven chicken, and dutch oven potatoes. Usually served with a giant glass of home-made root beer. (Don't you all wish you were invited?) My game plan fro dinner is just a whole lot of portion control. I'm not going to pass on something I can get only once a year. Its not like I'll be tempted to go through a drive through and binge on it after I've had a rough day.
For exercise, I'm not really sure what the plan is. My sister invited me to go running with her in the morning but there is only one bathroom and my grandparent's house and I'm not so sure the family would welcome the idea of me using it long enough for a shower. I'm sure the human slingshot will be there and that is always a work out.
Other than that, I plan to chug a lot of water, enjoy some great food, and visit with my family.
Speaking of Dutch ovens...I was recently contacted by CSN stores to host a giveaway for their site so keep an eye out for that! They sale everything from cookware, to furniture, and even SHOES!
