We drove everywhere, which meant trying to be good while eating "road trip food". We tried pork rinds, but they were gross! We ate some beef jerky and bought Funions, but never opened them. Smart Food popcorn was good, and we were careful to stay within the limit there. Mostly while driving it was lots and lots of water!
How I cheated:
- At Universal Studios we got the all day meal pass which meant free dessert with every meal. I tried the "brookie" (brownie/cookie mix) and a chocolate chip cookie. Both were really disgusting and I only ate a couple bites. One that was gross, and one to make sure it was really gross! Lol.
- At the most delicious steakhouse I've ever been to, Spencer's in San Jose, I had creme brulee for dessert. I shared with Hubs, but he didn't like it. I ate half of it and it was AMAZING!
- At the Tipsy Pig in San Francisco, I had fish and chips (was pretty good on carbs) and then homemade ice cream sandwiches (made with gelato). I had 1 ice cream sandwich. Yum!
Anyway-- can't say that I recommend cheating to anyone and there are three reasons why: (1) it's always disappointing; (2) it makes it harder to be good the next day; and (3) it can make you sick! We have gotten so used to eating a certain way that all that junk made our tummies ache!
I'm glad to be home now, but it's too bad to have to go back to work and everything. Oh well! We can start saving up for our next vacation!
Thanks for all the great advice before we left! I did think about what you all said while we were out there (hence the fish and chips!). Sorry I didn't take the time to blog while we were on the road. It was a really good motivator knowing that I would have to come back and report to you all how I did, though! Thanks for being my virtual buddy system!
