7 miles and deep fried goodness...

Yesterday morning I woke up early, and started walking.  I needed to walk 10 miles for my training for the Breast Cancer 3 day training.  So I figured if I could walk 7 or 8 miles then, I'd get the last few miles in while I was at Valleyfair.  So I did walk 7 miles, I finished it in 94 minutes.  Pretty good speed.  I felt good, and even healthy!
Then off to one of the least healthy places, Valleyfair!  On our way Gary and I stopped at Subway (after my dearest bosom friend, Kathleen, talked it up the other day, I couldn't stop thinking about it) so I started the day very healthy!
After many rides and even some waterpark, the weather changed on us and the park shut down for over an hour.  So, what else should we do besides indulge in the nasty Valleyfair fare.  I started with a Spicy Gyro. It was so good! Then Sammi had this deep fried cheese on a stick, it was SO GOOD.  I had never even heard of it.  It was so good, that I had to get one too.  The cheese coated my teeth and mouth and I had to kind of pry it off later.  What is a place like that, without Funnel Cakes?  So Sammi, Floyd and I shared one.  It was NASTY, it was so good!
I do have to say that I did plan on eating nasty there.  I allow myself a few days a year to just forgo my diet.  This is one of them, the other one is the state fair, and my first/last day in Seattle I indulge in a Dick's cheeseburger and fries.  I enjoyed the treats and know that it will be another year before I have cheese on a stick again.
The park was fun!  We did get to ride all the rides, that we wanted too!
Gotta get ready for church and worship my Amazing God!
Have a great day!

Congrats on getting your sugar numbers lower and getting off Metformin! That is such great news. I LOVE your veggies, I should have planted zucchini too. But didnt know how much I would learn to love them this summer. ;-)
