Today and yesterday are my last "weekmiddle"of the summer - I go back to school next week, which means weekends off again! I'll still be working Sundays, but it's just part-time, so life will be pretty chill again. I can't wait to rejoin normal society that celebrates rather than dreads Fridays!
Yesterday I had an awesome day off. My cousin Rachel and I biked the entire Stowe Recreation Path. I just wikipedia'd it and apparently it's award winning, who knew. What I do know that it's five and half miles each way, and we did a round trip! It was easy there, and easy until we stopped for a lunch break halfway back - and then it was killer! My bum is so sore today! But I'm so glad we did it.
After that, we, with her hubby Ben and her 2 month old violet picked up her adorable boys from school and went to the Champlain Valley Fair. We had an awesome time taking the boys on kiddie rides, riding a few grown up ones of our own, seeing all sorts of animals - like the hugest frigging steer I've ever seen, weighing just under 4000lbs!
We also, of course, ate. I tried to keep it as reasonable as possible while also knowing that it's a once a year occurrence, and I may as well try to enjoy. We all shared a funnel cake, I ate about half of my small corn-dog (it got stuck, of course) and then a good portion of oh so greasy blooming onion. And then just mouthfuls of the kids candy apples, cotton candy and ice cream. I didn't feel too guilty about, between the bike ride and all the walking, I knew it'd turn out OK.
My tummy however, has not been so forgiving - I have a first date tonight and I'm really hoping I feel totally normal by then! Speaking of which, when do you ladies think you'd mention dieting/the band with a new guy? I don't want to tell anyone right away, but I know I'd definitely want to tell him - or any other guy once I felt comfortable, my eating habits can seem strange, and I'd rather him know I'm banded thank think I'm bulimic. Also, I know some people are like "guys don't like girls who order salads," but to me, that's a safe choice - I don't wanna have to be running the the bathroom to yak tonight! What do you ladies think?
ps I just checked the menu of where we're going and they have crabcakes - my bandster safe food, yay!
EDIT : I FORGOT TO MENTION - 210.6! .6lbs by Friday - I'm pushing for it!
