I LOVE DISNEY! but...

Friday, August 01, 2008

it is not beneficial to my eating habits when I am there!

Wednesday, a friend of mine and I took our two boys to the Disney parks. We had a BLAST! When we go out there, I am a walker. I do not like to get stuck behind people and have to walk slow, so I am moving moving moving when I am there. They had a time keeping up with me. It was the first time we have gone just for Nick and a friend of his. Usually we are surrounded by girls because of Autumn. So I was glad we went. However, my mind associates Disney with food! Epcot is my favorite place to go and they have the best food and I AM A FOODIE! I did not eat nearly the amount of food I have eaten in the past (before my lifestyle change), but this time I decided to keep track of everything! I put it in my food tracker and HOLY COW! Almost 3000 calories. Now I walk a lot and I walk fast, but I did not walk that much!!!!! It will be another 6 weeks or so before we go back out there (it really is too hot!). I will have to make better choices or jog around the "world" at Epcot to negate what I eat. We really did have a great time and the boys stuck it out to the end!

Needless to say, I did not lose any thing this week. I actually gained a half a pound (even though I was negative 2000 calories for the week). Go Figure.

I am looking forward to the weekend. I pick Autumn up from camp today. We have missed her. I hope she has had a great time and I can't wait to hear all about it!

Well, I am off to school shopping with Nick. Only two and a half weeks until school starts!

HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND! emoticon

    Oh I agree! Eating around the world is the best! Food and Wine Festival...oh yeah!
    But ok, what's worse? Epcot and eating or those little donuts at the water parks?
    At least there's nothing worth eating at Magic Kingdom, LOL.

    I often take my own snacks to Disney parks, especially since the Mitsukoshi pavilion in Japan stopped selling edamame. :(
    Because, like you, I walk walk WALK and I'm a fast walker. Which means I'm gonna have major munchies!

    So that's yet another thing I pack for a day in the park. Water, poncho, FOOD.... Ah well.
