First Weekend

Went to the Zoo on Saturday with my daughter and wife.  We ended up walking 3.2 miles, so I did a little over a 5k.  I was pretty pleased with myself and also my leg was sore after all of that.  We did take some breaks along the way to let the pain go down a little bit.

I thought that watching what I ate was going to be a challenge.  After the zoo my daughter was pretty hungry and getting cranky because of it.  So we swung into the nearest McDonalds.  Daughter got a happy meal and neither me or my wife got anything.  I was proud of myself it would have been super simple to get a BigMac and fries and a coke and enjoy it.  Instead I stuck to my guns and my wife helped support me.  When I got home I made something healthy for me and my wife made herself what she wanted and enjoyed the rest of the day.  

Sunday wasn't much of a challenge either, I ended up going over to a coworkers house.  They knew what I was doing and made sure that I had all the information that I needed to keep track of what they had to eat and drink for us.  It is nice to have support from friends when going through a change in lifestyle like this.

  2. Way to go! I know how hard it can be to resist that temptation! I was at Costco yesterday and my girls were hungry so they got pizza...I had to cut up an entire piece of pizza for my 2 year old. Pure torture! But I didn't have single bite! I went home and ate my healthy food and felt good about it :)
