D day on the cracking means restraint or tums. I did good with the restraint part until my last meal and now I need tums. We were trying to decide between Furr's and IHOP. The kids wanted Furr's. I was just going to have a bite of pie and a bite of apple dumpling. I ended up having two bites of chess pie and 1/2 the crust from the dumpling. I also had one crispy sopapillo thing and one cornbread muffin. I did have my veggies, broccoli and green beans. I started getting that sugar rush headache/dizziness before the kids even finished their meals. I think I will count my calories in a minute to see how bad it actually was.

On a better note, I ran again today. My husband wanted to go out for breakfast but I had already eaten my ez bread sandwich. My oldest son wanted to shower before he was seen in public so I saw the perfect opportunity to get a run in. My middle son and I took off running our usual course in reverse with a little extra distance so we could end up at the restaurant and meet the rest of the family. By then I could have my 2nd meal of the day so I had eggs. After everyone finished eating, we decided to run home. The drivers and riders challenged the runners to a race. Fat chance that we would win but we never turn down a challenge besides we could get a head start while they were loading up the car. We cut through alleys and yards but they quickly pulled up beside us in a taunting fashion and circled the block a few times. We refused to be beaten and kept running. They parked at the house and started walking back towards us when I shouted that no one had made it to the house yet. My husband and I took off at a dead sprint and I beat him to the door. Go runners! Remember slow and steady wins the race.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend. Keep crackin.

The race to the door, How fun! I love stuff like that makes exercise more enjoyable when you are not thinking about it.

I hate that sugar headache. But oh, I enjoy the sugar oh so much before hand.

What a great idea to run to the restaurant. I hope my kids will run with me when they get older.
