I woke up with my hunger seemingly gone which was pretty exciting. I drank the leftover juice from yesterday's bottle which probably was only about 8 oz and after that I really didn't want any more, juice OR food. I had promised a friend I would go to a street fair in Silverlake with her, called Sunset Junction.
Our original plan was to get there at 3:45 (if you get in before 4 you only pay $12 vs. $15 after 4) pay, walk in, get stamped and turn around and leave the festival again and go get coffee or drive around until 7:30 when the the band she wanted to see was going on. So I left my house late, got a little distracted by the internet, actually setting up this blog! and didn't get to her house until about 10 of four which was not enough time to get there park and get cheap tickets.
Still we thought we'd try so we drove down there and finally found parking after about a half hour. She talked one of the guards to let us in through a back entrance so we paid him $10 each and wandered in, pleased with ourselves and the saving of $5. THEN the realization hit us. We couldn't now leave and come back cause we didn't have the pink wrist band AND we'd NEVER find parking again. SO here it was about 4:30 and the band didn't ened up going on until 9:15. Five hours of having to stand around staring at all the carnival food. Hawaiian BBQ, Chinese food, Grilled corn on the cob, Vietnamese sandwiches ahhh it was horrible. At first it wasn't bad cause like I said wasn't physically hungry and I could kind of look at it seemingly unaffected. But when there was that much time to kill and my overeating is generally a side effect of boredom, it was tough. I bought a couple of bottles of orange juice but still by 8pm I felt my stomach rumbling. The hunger had not gone away like I thought. I must have just had enough juice and water to hold it back.
Finally around 10:30 my friend dropped me off at my car and I was SOOOOO tempted to stop at McDonalds or Subway or anywhere cause I was exhausted and feeling annoyed about the band taking so long and then I was realizing I'd only be punishing myself by eating. So somehow I managed to pass by and not stop. I was EXTREMELY close to giving in though. I don't know what ultimately stopped me but I did keep telling myself it will be more excitign to wake up and see the weight loss instead of waking up feeling bad and back where I started. So I came home, watched part of a movie and went to sleep.
