99 how fantastic is that

Friday, August 09, 2013

OMG - blog 99! I am on the verge of entering 100 blogs! I am looking forward to a challenging, fun filled, temptation filled weekend.

Today I am leaving work early, as my son-in-law snagged some tickets to the Lions preseason opener in Detroit. Yes, I am ready for some football - but being a football fan in Michigan is a challenge. The Lions - well - you never know with the Lions. But today is a clean slate with endless possibilities for them, let's see what they do with it! The game is a sell out and should be fun.

Knowing that I would be in the car for a good portion of the afternoon/evening and sitting in a chair for the other portion - I got up early and got 2 miles in on the treadmill. Going to get the other two miles in on my way home from work. So, walk will be done before I leave any walking done in Detroit will be bonus steps! - one good thing

I also know that we will be having some of those Detroit coney dogs - so, I have really watched my calorie and carb intake this morning- so I should be able to build them into my calorie count for the day - another good thing! Pat on the back - I even avoided that yummy Arnie's cake in the kitchen at work!

Tomorrow is my son's birthday. He will be throwing out the first pitch at the Whitecaps game. I know tomorrow will involve birthday cake - and ball park food temptations. We will be getting together before the game - grilling some healthy chicken & veggies - but then there will be that cake. I am planning on getting all my walking in early - and will allow myself a small piece of cake. I hate to open that door to sweets, because it is always so hard to close! I am hoping that with eating before the game, that ball park food will not tempt me as much. Time will tell!

Sunday we are heading up north for a day of paddling on the AuSable river - packing lunch - so should be able to eat healthy and all that paddling has to count for something! The challenge will be to avoid eating out for supper - or trying to at least make a healthy choice when we eat out. Getting my steps in will be another challenge as we are leaving early - and will be getting in late. I might have to cut myself some slack on the steps - but I am going to try!

Doing my best to navigate the shark infested waters of temptations, treats and excuses not to exercise. I have a plan - let's hope I am able to stick with it!!!

Have a great weekend everyone!

    Barb,
    Sounds like an action-packed weekend and you seem well-armed with your plans - best of luck on the execution, but most of all remember to have fun! Football season already? Yes, between the Lions and the Bears, we never know what kind of season we're going to have, best just to enjoy it. At least the Cubs we'll be winding down and I'll have some time before they disappoint me again - LOL. Happy Birthday to your son, I'm sure he is very excited about throwing out the first pitch!
