Isn't it funny how when you try to stick to your diet, all kinds of things seem to come along to knock you off your game. We had our end of school year party Tuesday night at the zoo. It was hot. I mean HOT. The thing started at 4 but I didn't get there until after 5pm. The food was what you'd expect - hot dogs and burgers, potato salad, beans, and booze (if you wanted it). I'm not much of a drinker these days and since I drove myself, I decided to stick with water. I ate no bun and no potato salad. It was so hot that eating was really not worth it.
After the fan fare, some of us walked around the zoo. Saw the brand spanking new baby elephant - Baylor! Soooo cute! It ran around (only 3 weeks old) playing like a 3 year old. I've never seen a baby elephant playing and running like that! The sweating was worth getting to watch it! I've got pictures that I'll post along with pictures of the giraffes and a cheetah. Too tired tonight :( Enjoy this for now:
Today at work we had our end of the year parents appreciation luncheon. Seriously, enough with the end-o-year stuff! We had BBQ from Goode Co. So dang good. I passed up the jalepeno bread but couldn't pass up the pecan pie. I knew I'd get home and ride my bike, and I did, so I don't feel too guilty. They have the best pecan pie, really.
The thing I'm finally learning about this diet thing is this - there's always going to be temptation - we just have to have a plan in place so when something comes along to try and knock us off our game, we execute the plan and move on. My plan today was choose one treat, exercise to minimize the damage, and for the rest of the day eat low carb. I did exactly that and I'm movin' on. But that's it for the rest of the week, heh.
Have a great day and take care! Are you drinking enough water?
