I really had the best of intentions when we arrived at the fair, but the choices being the typical "fry everything and load it with grease" meals, I just did my best and shared a turkey leg with my daughter. And sample the curly fries. And munch on popcorn. And drink a Margarita. (That one wasn't my fault, my husband surprised me with it, not knowing I am working with only 500 calories... 2/3 of which had already been eaten... ).

Initially I had a really hard time believing in the acceptability of a diet that would deny it's adherents a yearly dip into Calorie Quagmire... however, I've changed my mind. The fair's offerings barely qualify as food. I have to keep reminding myself that avoiding typical American cuisine should not be viewed as a sacrifice; it's eschewing dangerous consumption and enslavement to consumerism.

Before I sound too much like a Granola-hippie, I should note here that I love all that stuff: corn dogs, funnel cakes, and enormous waffle cones laden with fattening, hormone-filled ice cream and toppings. Oh, Momma... I still crave those things, regardless of their nutritional makeup. I'm reminding myself that training begins with following rote rules, continues with good habits formed and then ends with a real desire for adherence.

I'm still working on that final part...
