It's been a fab weekend, my friends. So nice to be off for two days with the hubby, not to mention the weather was perfect!
I had to get up and work out on Saturday 'cause I was meeting my friends for our monthly lunch. I did the bike to save some time, and told myself I would do the step on Sunday. I had breakfast, got ready and and headed out the door. It was funny to think that the last time I had lunch with these people, a month before, I weighed 15 lbs. more! Woah. I had a drink (raspberry bellini...mmm total weakness of mine!) 'cause I said I would this time around. :) I ordered the southwest chicken wrap, which was really tasty. The chicken breast was tender and a bit spicy, and it had lettuce, peppers, onions and salsa in there as well. I ate about five or six fries, and left most on my plate. After some laughs with my lovely friends I headed home. Later, Jason and I went to my sister's for dinner and to watch the UFC fight. I am not that interested in the fighting...sweaty, muscular dudes rolling around...wait...um...ok, so it does have its moments. :P My sis and her hubby grilled up some chicken skewers and ribs for us. Yum! I had one and a bit skewers and a dollop of potato salad and about half a plate of green salad. My lovely sister also had prepared some snacks and there were potato chips and Doritos as well. Eeeeeep. I ate ONE potato chip to try her garlic dip, and ONE Dorito. I also had about 1/2 a piece of whole wheat pita bread with a tablespoon each of hummus and tzatziki. That's it! I did have another drink, which I didn't feel great about. It was a large glass of cranberry juice with vodka. Ahh well. Overall a really fun day, and though I ate more than I usually do, I didn't go overboard!
Today was another beautiful day! I knew we wanted to see a movie in the afternoon, so I did my step workout before noon. I noticed that when I checked my heart rate it's much lower than it used to be at the height of the workout. Conditioning...it's happening! I was still breathing hard and red-faced in the end, though. Before we went to the movie, I put a big bag of grapes and a few almonds in my purse along with my water. We saw Terminator 4...and of course Jason had to get popcorn. I did have a bit...two handfuls or so. Then I ate my grapes (they were really good!) and later, had my almonds. The worst part was Jason's combo came with a bag of M&Ms. Eeeeeeeep. I love those things. They are still sitting in my purse....unopened. I have heard them calling my name a few times though. Oh, I nearly forgot dinner! We had pork chops done on the BBQ, and I put some red, yellow and orange peppers on there as well. So I ate the chop, grilled veggies, salad and baked potato. Really nice dinner. After, to take my mind off of those evil little M&Ms, I had a fudge pop. After that I could STILL hear those things calling to me, so I had another pop. They are only 40 cal. with zero fat, so I don't feel too bad eating two.
I suppose I ate more than usual, but I did manage to exercise both days. So that just leaves me with...
