Yay 1lb! Considering what I was surrounded with this weekend this is great!

Weekend Recap

Friday: When I got home from work my son and I decided to go to BLOCKBUSTER and get some movies for family night. In the end I did my exercise and was so tired I watched about 20 mins of his movie before I was falling asleep. I made a plan to watch the rest sunday night. I cannot even remember what I ate that night. My eating was very disjointed I think I ate some left over roast chicken and some mashed potatoes.

Saturday: Saturday I worked so before heading into work I went by shaws to buy some breakfast food. I really didn’t feel like spending the $7 for the jimmy deans D’light breakfast sandwiches.  I thought I’d pick up the next best thing Smart-Ones Egg & cheese with Canadian bacon. Yea well those smart ones breakfast sandwiches are so gross I literally had to force it down. It was watery and the english muffin got rubbery and just all around BLECH! I ate fruit and yogurt for snack. Lunch was a lean cuisine that was ok but missing something. I got off of work to get home and catch a nap but I ended up doing some running around and by the time I got back home it was time to do my exercise since I had a party to go to later on.

Tony and I went to a friends party and they had all the food and all the liquor. I only had about 4 oz of vodka and mixed it with some lemonade. After that I had one more cup of lemonade and then water the rest of the night. Oh wait I am lying I had a Corona also. I wasn’t going to eat but the food smelled great so I grabbed a plate and put some coconut rice and beans & 1 beef empanada on it.  Of course someone said “That’s all your eating” I said “yes” and I got the whole “there is plenty of food, eat all you want!”. I just said thanks and maybe I will get some more later but for now this is all I want. I lied though because after I ate the rice and empanada, I so wanted like 2-3 more empanadas. My goodness they were soooo yummy but I didn’t I just dreamed to myself and vowed that sometime this week I will make my healthy version of the empanadas. Maybe I will post the recipe. For anyone who has had empanadas you know they are yummy and greasy! Well mine are just as yummy I make them with ground turkey breast,fresh salsa,low-fat cheese,corn tortillas and instead of being fried they are baked!

Once the party got rolling no one was worried about what I was eating or drinking so I had a good time. By the time we left the snowstorm we were expecting was getting kinda bad. Instead of doing the smart thing and going home we drove to another party. I didn’t eat or drink there mainly because I was tired and fully engrossed in a die-hard game of JENGA. By the time we left it was about 2:30am, I was so tired and mad at myself that I stayed out that late even though I had to be to work in 5 hours. By the time I finally got home it was about 3:15, the snow was crazy and we had decided to shovel a bit before we went in, which is why I ended up not actually falling asleep until 3:30am.

Sunday: 6:00 am my alarm goes off and it feels like I have only been sleep all of 10 mins. Cranky and angry I went outside to look at the damage. I couldn’t even see the path Tony & I shoveled only 2.5 hours before. I literally stomped to my room threw on some clothes and proceeded to shovel out my car while it heated up. It took me about 20 mins total. When I finished shoveling I changed quickly into my uniform and headed to work hoping I didn’t spin-out or get stranded on the way. I wish I now took pics so you guys could see how bad it was….this pic from bostontweet.com on twitter sums up how I felt driving to work sunday morning. (This was taken sunday morning by a follower of bostontweet.com)

Once I got to work I was all good and not sleepy at all. I agin ate the smart ones breakfast sandwich and again it was atrocious. I ate fruit and yogurt for snack and ate some of the food I took from the 1st party we went to Saturday night. Dinner on sunday consisted of a beef hotdog and some Egg nog. Before that I shoveled with my son for about 45 mins. I was going to exercise but every one of my followers on twitter said that I can count the snow shoveling as my exercise for the day. I can’t remember when I fell asleep because I was so exhausted.

All in all I had a super fun time this weekend and was extremely happy that I resisted temptation. 2 weeks to go until my weigh in! I am super excited and I really feel like I can hit my goal!

Weekend Recap

Friday – Went out to eat to celebrate a friend’s birthday. I didn’t pig out at all. I ordered a buffalo shrimp app and a lobster. Like I said in my earlier post the butter tasted like just oil so I just ate the lobster plain. Wow it was yummy. I also had 2 small pieces of cornbread. My son and I returned home so late and I had to be to work so early the next day that I ended up just going to sleep. This was the 1st week in about a month and a half that I didn’t exercise 6 days.

Saturday – Saturday at work I ate very well. I purchased some jimmy deans D’light breakfast sandwiches. Wow are those things yummy! So much better than Egg mcmuffins. Now if I only had a D’light hash brown and some D’light orange juice I would have been in heaven. I made sure to eat well. That night I surprised my bf with a night at the theater. We went to go see THE SLUTCRACKER which was great. I had a 5 oz glass of Pinot grigio and a half of a small box of popcorn. The pop corn was so yummy but I gave it away after I downed half of the box in what seemed like a split second. After the theater we went to a sports bar and met up with a good amount of his friends and they drank beer & took shots. I had only sips off of  Tony’s drinks. I refused to get any drinks. I didn’t even take part in the group shot taking even though I wanted to. My one splurge,  fried calamari with some yummy spicy sauce. Wow was it good and so worth it. It came with some weird fried chip things but I didn’t eat those. The rest of the night I drank water & took pictures. I had fun and so did Tony & since it was his night that was all I cared about.

Sunday – Gah I was so sleepy! We didn’t get home saturday night until about 2am and sleep didn’t come until about 230am. So by the time 630am rolled around I felt like I slept all of 10 mins. I made my way to work and grabbed some mint tea to wake myself up. I ate really well, for lunch instead of eating the veggies I had I threw those away and went to shaws. I picked up some Mongolian beef and some sesame noodles. I swear it was karma from those thrown away veggies because the beef and the noodles tasted horrible! I was glad I only purchase a small portion of each. I sucked it up and ate it. For dinner I had a mish mash of things. First things first I took a 3 hour nap! Then once I woke up my step father talked me into making tuna melts. The only bread I had were 2 sandwich thins. The tuna tasted supremely gross to me so I only made a small sandwich, ate that and was still hungry. My son was eating some lasagna so I cut a small sq but it also didn’t taste right so I gave the rest to him. Finally Tony was making spicy sausages, so I made him throw one on the stove for me. It was yummy and I was finally satisfied.

A bit later my mother and I ended up doing Jillian Micheals. Yea death because I push myself way harder in front of my mother than what I do when I am doing it alone. My mother was struggling but she made it through. We both ended up passing out soon after.

All in all it was a good weekend. I feel like if Friday or saturday didn’t happen the way they did I would have probably hit the 2 lb lost mark but like I said above I am very happy with my 1 lb.

Total lost this week: No loss…. just a gain of .5 lbs

Boooo

Thoughts

I know why there is no loss and I am not sweating it. It’s not like I gained a huge amount of weight so it’s no biggie. I am taking this as a hint that I need to switch up the routine so starting tonight I will be doing only Jillian Michael’s Burn fat Boost Metabolism. We shall see what next week brings.

Weekend Recap

Saturday: Work & later I attended the engagement party of a good friend. There were all types of yummy things there. I ate really well. What got me though was the wine. I had about 4 glasses and 1 bottle of smirnoff ice. I only got to do my 20 min high intensity Biggest Loser workout so the wine coupled with my other calories that I ate at the party did not make for a good day calorie wise. I don’t regret it, I had fun.

Sunday: My eating all day went very well until Sunday night. I wasn’t really hungry but I wanted something sweet so I ate a small piece of peach cobbler. Then I got hungry later and ate some spicy ranch green beans, 1 rib & some candied yams. I did exercise though despite the fact that I was exhausted.

All in all I feel like I had a good week food wise. My exercise was lacking because 2 days I only walked. I intend to go hardcore this week and exercise my booty off. I have 2 birthdays that I have this week which means I will be most likely heading out to dinner to celebrate with friends. Not worried I will make sure to scope out the menus and make healthy choices.

Sorry the post is so sparse I am exhausted and can barely think straight, let alone type coherently.
