*The video is nothing interesting, the poor lady didn't know how to work my camera, so Snow White and I were just kinda chillin' and started to laugh. She was such a trooper and so patient! It just shows how dang cute we are*
What do you think are the odds of the Fairy Godmother can help me out with the last 30 pounds?
Okay now down to business:
Do you ever go somewhere with the BEST of intentions only to have it blow up in your face?! LOL That is what happened to me this fine Wednesday. I had a burger for lunch, and ate the bread and french fries. For dinner we had soup/salad but I had croutons, and some mac and cheese and a small piece of pizza. Now normally it's not a big deal... and a night out is no big thing, but it was supposed to be day 20 out of 21 on my sugar detox. Fluffy carbs and starches were not part of the program so I blew it big time. So I am holding myself accountable, because it's how I roll.
But I refuse to beat myself up over it. I am human, and in a perfect world I wouldn't have gone to Disneyland until day 22, but that's not how life works. ;)
So I accept it, but I also have to realize this:
I did NOT drink soda. Part of me thought "well you already slipped, why not have soda?" I shut that thought down RIGHT away.
I did NOT have dessert although it was available as part of the meal, they had brownies, frozen yogurt etc. NONE for me. So I am still sweet/pastry/candy free which was the biggest thing I wanted to stick to!
It was all you can eat at dinner and I did not stuff myself full of food.
And the best part of all, I had an AMAZING day at Disneyland!
I wore my Bibbidi Bobbidi Boo shirt that I bought 10 years ago, and could only recently wear it again. I had compliments from 3 employees on the shirt, as well as Cinderella and the Fairy Godmother herself. I know this might sound silly to many of you, and I am going to be 29 next month... but it's fun. There is so much going on in our lives, work, family, etc... not to mention all the things going on in the world... so if I can go to Disneyland and act like a kid once in a while, I don't see any harm. ;) I spent so many years on the sidelines afraid to go anywhere with a lot of walking, or specifically to a theme park because I was afraid of not fitting in the seats. And I would never run around taking photos and having a great time... but this the new me!
I am so much more confident, I am not afraid to be silly, I am not worried about what anyone is thinking. I have no shame asking Minnie Mouse or Daisy Duck if we can hold hands and pose like BFF's. My uncle apparently had NO SHAME asking to stand next to Jasmine and let's just say Aladdin & Jasmine were both not pleased by this!
So today was one of the best days ever. Did I strike out as far as my Sugar Detox is concerned (for today)... SURE but in the grand scheme of life I still think it was a win for so many other reasons. I will still continue on with my plans moving forward and not let this turn into me going off the deep end. I will say I didn't crave any of the stuff, it's just what we ate. I also realized I didn't really miss the things that I was eating and I didn't go crazy eating them. So that shows I am not feeling deprived and that is a wonderful thing.
I have 2903920 photos from that day, I just couldn't help it! I can't wait to shrink even more!
