Rockin' the Beer Gut...Not!

Lest you guys think I've got this whole resisting temptation thing figured out, I'm here to confess my faux pas of last evening. Beren and I bought VIP tickets to an all-day country music event, included free food and beer..all day long. Gulp. Knowing that hours of drinking & eating would not be good for me, we opted to spend the afternoon elsewhere, enjoying some Biketoberfest sights & sounds in Daytona Beach.

(How's that for eye candy?)

I had dinner at home and then headed to the concert around 6:30 pm. By this time there was very little left to eat, poor planning on the part of the event promoters and bad for Beren who hadn't eaten yet, but good for me. I nibbled on some grapes and celery, had just a taste of chicken salad, no problem. However, the beer got me into trouble. It was just too easy to grab one..then two..then three..of those free beers while I was rockin' out to Gretchen Wilson! Granted, they were light beers but still..totally unnecessary and unplanned-for calories. I do not want to be rockin' any beer gut, ok?

So, what am I gonna do about it? I already started drinking my water, ate my Jenny breakfast, plan on a long walk with Loki, stay 100% on program today...just get right back on track and let last night's indulgences be a thing of the past.

Have a Beauty-Full Day,


  1. Awesome weekend pix. Almost time to get back to the 9 to 5 stuff. Life goes on.

  2. Cool Pics...Nothing wrong with a diet break, sometimes it helps with the scale being stuck,how's that for a positive spin?

  3. There is NOTHING wrong with drinking a few beers while watching country music! Tomorrow is another day, and Gretchen Wilson is great!!!

  4. That's right-a thing of the past. Plus, it's not like you go to events like that with free beer flowing all night long, right? And what concert is complete without a beer or two? :)
