I faced down my own personal dragon today. Nora wanted to go to the carnival which we promised she could quite a few months ago. You know- before I decided to be a reformed carb a holic. The carnival is a perfect opportunity to get foods like elephant ears and funnel cakes.
So as Nora was running around the house getting ready to go I was waging a war with my dragon. Do I abandon all the hard work in getting OFF carbs in the first place and gorge myself on funnel cakes at the carnival? Or should I stand strong and stay the course knowing that in the long run I will be all the better for not induging.
So we went to the carnival and I saw people eating those lovely fried funnel cakes loaded down with strawberries and whipped cream. Oh man. My mouth was watering and I was thanking my lucky stars that it wasn't a hot July day because my will power might have melted.
Instead, Nora got to ride all her favorite rides and a few new ones that she is now tall enough to ride. Then we went to Wal-Mart and grabbed a couple movies out of the Redbox and we had a fun afternoon watching movies together.
I couldn't believe it. I made it out of the carnival without eating Fair Food!! Either this is a mark of personal growth or there is something wrog with me! ;)
