From as far back as I can remember I have been overweight and have attempted one diet after another to try to become that skinny girl I always dreamed of being. I'm starting this blog in hopes of using this as my motivational tool to finally change my lifestyle and get healthy. Feel free to cheer me on, give me advice or criticize me if need be. I'm way tougher on myself than anyone else can be on me.
I have a new challenge tomorrow, our town is having their annual Apple Festival. I'm hoping my willpower holds up because there is so much food at this festival. Everything from barbeque to turkey legs, burgers to hotdogs and then there are the sweets; chocolate covered bananas, funnel cakes, candied apples and cotton candy. I wasn't planning on going but my husband has to work in the morning and my youngest sons are with their father this weekend so I'm taking my oldest son with me. Hopefully I will be so busy taking pictures that I completely forget about the food. I've tried to think of healthy alternatives I can have at the festival but there really are none. At least alot of booths give out free bottles of water so I should get plenty of that. I also plan on buying a big bag of apples but other than that there is nothing healthy there. Its kind of like going to the fair, the same kind of food. What do you recommend me do? Just have willpower and eat before I go? Take a snack with me to get me through until I get home? Just give in and let myself have one thing?....which I don't really want to do because it will just make me feel bad.
