Whew! What a day! Day six of carb-cycling, a high-carb day, was spent away from home for most of the day. I'm a pink hatter in a Red Hat Society group, and today was my first outing with them. The Red Hat Society is for women over 50. They meet every so often, and the women wear purple and wear red hats. I'm not 50 yet, so I'm a pink hat member. I wear lavender and, you guessed it, a pink hat. Many of my family members are in this group. Out event today was a local production of the Broadway musical "Big Fish." I use the term local very loosely as we had to drive a few hours to get there. But if you live in north Georgia, between Dalton and the Tennessee border, it's local.
I knew this day was going to be a challenge. After having a great week, I didn't want to blow it because I was away from home. So, last night I spent the evening prepping my food for the day. This morning I loaded up a cooler and headed out with my family.
First stop after picking up various family members along the way was Applebee's for lunch, and some photo-taking fun. I was pretty dang pleased with myself. Not only did I not eat anything from the menu, I even refrained from snacking on anyone else's food. Then we headed to the theater. Before the musical began, we had to do another round of photos. I spent about a minute feeling awful about how much bigger I am than the rest of my family, and then I told myself to get over it. I'm working on it, so no body-shaming on myself allowed. Here are just a couple photos of our group.
The musical was fantastic. I ended up eating two of my meals in the car. It's all good. I made it work, and I didn't blow all I'd worked for this week. I can't really ask for much more.
So, I guess I should share how my first week went. It's not officially a week in as I just started on Monday. However, I'm going to weigh-in on Saturday mornings, so here I am doing my first one on day 6. I'm pretty pleased with the results.
And with that... I'm gonna head to bed. I'm whooped! Goodnight!
