Woooo Hooooo! Mary
started our new thread for us! Well, I DID NOT have a good time in the rain last night!!
I wish this smilie had a very unhappy face under the umbrella, because it would be me.
Qualifying was rained out............dang..... dang.....
get to see the Goody's Dash 150, which was a different series of racers (I didn't have a clue who any of them were) but they really raced their hearts out on the inside oval of the track and it was really neat! I have come to discover, that even though it is not near as fun as watching Tony race.........I just love racing. Period. There is just something about the growl of the motor and the way it jars your insides and the smell of the fuel.......ok, I know. I've got it BAD!!
I would also like to report that there were SEVERAL Tony fans there, which always makes me quite happy. I love seeing other Tony fans......you automatically have a bond with someone who is a complete stranger. Can be good.....can be bad, depending on the person.
I am also VERY HAPPY
to report that I stayed OP the whole day! We stopped and ate twice.....once at Subway (I had a turkey and ham sub w/lettuce, onions & lite mayo)(6 pts.), a bag of WOW potato chips (2pts) and a diet coke. 8 points total
On the way back, we stopped at Wendys. I had a small chilli (4 pts) and a grilled chicken sandwich. (6 pts) 10 points total
So.....in short, my whole trip only cost me 18 points and I had only eaten 10 earlier that day for lunch and breakfast. Being able to stay OP, especially when everyone else in the car (that would have been dh, friend Kim, friend Teresa and ds, Trey) is eating like a bunch of piggies,
really makes me feel so strong!!
Was I tempted?
Did I give in to that evil voice?
All kidding aside, it is horrible when your dh is sitting beside you in the front seat, shoving in a double cheeseburger, (no, not a big & tasty
) large fries and drinking a FROSTY.....and your friends
in the backseat are eating chicken sandwiches, fries and frosties. Your body, your mind, your taste buds and evil thinking says, "Oooh, I want some of that. I'm just going to eat it and get back on track tomorrow." But you know what girls? Sometimes, there is no tomorrow. Tomorrow turns into tomorrow.
Then tomorrow turns into next week and so on and so forth and before you know it........you've gained and lost the same 20 pounds back AGAIN! How hard you work to lose the weight and how easy it is to put it right back on. If losing weight were as easy as gaining or vice versa, no one would be overweight.
Ok, I'm off of my
now. Sometimes I just get a little wound up.
Are we still chatting tonight? Someone let me know so I can get my hind end in here at the right time! A big
to all my family and I hope you are all doing well. See you tonight I hope!
