My journey to finding a healthy balance with eating, exercise, and life in general

We had so much fun with Mollie, Dana and Greg today! Before heading out on our adventures, I snacked on a honeycrisp apple (handpicked last week) with a light Laughing Cow cheese wedge and light Sargento colby jack cheese stick.

We went out to Kimball Farms in Westford, MA. I had heard about it from a friend last year and it took us this long to get around to getting there! They have a driving range, mini golf, bumper boats, a small animal farm, ice cream and fried seafood.

(There were chickens wandering around)

First item on the agenda was ice cream.

I got a “kiddie” sized cup of vanilla and chocolate frozen yogurt soft serve. It was HUGE! I forgot to take a picture until about 1/3 of the way through.

Dave, Greg and Mollie bumper boated while Dana and I took pictures and talked. We were glad we chose to opt out of bumper boats because their bums were wet for the entire evening!

Next, we engaged in a cut-throat round of mini golf.

The ladies

And the very rough ‘n’ tough men

I won by three strokes! But I didn’t win any prizes 😦

Before leaving, we wandered through the Country Store. They had all kinds of jams, syrups and salsas. The Raspberry Champagne Mustard sounded most interesting to me!

While driving back, we decided to go to a local Mexican/Guatemalan restaurant that is about a 5 minute walk from our house. We’ve lived in the area for over 3 years and have talked about going there but never had. Tonight was the night! My neighborhood has a lot of Guatemalan expatriots, so the food was very authentic.

They had a mariachi band! None of my pictures turned out well, so I have none to share 😦

We ordered a pitcher of margaritas. Dave and I shared a glass and I had my fair share!

I also munched on several tortilla chips and salsa while waiting for my dinner to come.

I ordered the shrimp fajitas, sans sour cream and cheese.

It was a ginormous plate of food!

Shrimp and veggies, with the guac in the background


Refried beans (these are one of my favorite foods!)

Pico de Gallo salsa

I finished everything except for the rice. I am such a lightweight! After having only about 1 1/2 margaritas, I was so drunk. I definitely didn’t need as much food as I ended up eating, but when I’m drunk, paying attention to my hunger and satiety cues just goes out the window. That’s OK, I had an awesome time tonight!

Fun times were had by all!

I hope this all made sense, considering how tipsy I am. I think that I’m headed to bed after this. See you tomorrow morning!
