payback is a what what
Sunday, April 27, 2014
I cleaned house for about 10 minutes and had to sit down to rest.
My body is so tired.
This past weekend was our towns annual Hillbilly Days celebration.
It is 3 days of food, music, arts and crafts, carnival, walking, shuffling thru thousands of people, food, walking, hot sun, rain, more hot sun, more walking and did I mention food???
The event is to raise money for the Shriners Childrens Hospitals and it has been going on for around 38 years or so.
I went all 3 days and my feet are worn out, aching, my whole body is aching from all the walking and sitting and standing and walking some more.
Of course, the walking would have been ok, had I not eaten like a crazy person.
Pulled pork sandwich, chicken on a stick, a third of a funnel cake, red velvet cookies, lemonade, and the finale, deep fried peanut butter and jelly sandwich.
And my new background pic on my page is my sons girlfriends little girl, at the carnival, this was her first time coming to the event and she loved it, she is a real daredevil and wanted to ride the big people rides and she rode everything that she was allowed to.
We had a blast with her!!!
So, now comes the payback.
All those needless calories. Time to pay the piper.
So, as I spend the next few days recovering physically, I also have to deal with the guilt of all those calories and the knowledge that I have to face the scale in a few days.
I kept telling myself, HBD is like Christmas, its one time a year and you are almost obligated to participate, Shriners has helped several members of my family, neighbors, etc.
Of course I know I could just make a donation without partaking in the food, but what? What I didnt hear that, lol.
Back to reality.
I probably wont walk for a few days, my foot is really mad at me for over use and I am aching from shoulders and neck to feet.
So, I am drinking gatorade, water and taking my vitamins, eating my fill of protein to try to rid myself of this feeling of being hungover, without having had the fun of partaking in any spirits!!!
It is a beautiful day here and I might sit outside on the porch later and soak up some vitamin d and relax.
then its back to the old drawing board of how to get back on track and forgive myself for putting extra calories, sugar, carbs into my body.
In my last ditch effort to defend my actions, I will say, I didnt eat as much as much as I could have and I did walk alot. ALOT.
Hope everyone is having a nice relaxing guilt free Sunday.
