Dreams Come True

Disney World and Islands of Adventure (most specifically The Wizarding World of Harry Potter) were AH-MAY-ZING. I can't even describe the excitement and shear joy that I felt while we were in the parks. I was definitely transported back in age a few years. I don't think I've been that giddy, well, ever!

Sakief and I truly had a wonderful time, and definitely want to go back. Hopefully I won't have to wait another 17 years!

So how well did I stick to my diet you ask? Eh. Friday driving was fine, and yesterday driving back I didn't feel well and only ended up eating Linner around 3 when I got home. I definitely enjoyed some of the treats that the parks had to offer, but in the end, I really don't feel bad about it (but won't be stepping on the scale just to "check" before my official weigh in on Friday). It's probably not as bad as I think. Yes, I definitely ate things way outside of my diet (and paid for it with a nasty stomach ache yesterday on the drive home), but I also walked the parks for a total of about 20 hours, and most of that really was walking. We picked a great weekend to go, and did minimal waiting in line, except for a few rides.

I also know that I won't continue to eat the way I did this weekend, and have already jumped right back on the low carb bandwagon. I'm a little hungrier today than I usually would be, but my stomach will shrink quickly enough, and I'll be back in the swing of things in no time.

Also, for you Harry Potter fans out there, the butter beer that they serve in Hogsmeade = awesome. Definitely full of sugar (Sakief thought it was too sweet), but very enjoyable (the whipped cream stuff that they put on top was INCREDIBLE). I might have enjoyed more than one on Saturday, but it was worth it!

Enjoying our butter beer!
