Weekend Recap

Well this weekend was a really nice weekend.

It was good to go and visit with my sister and parents and see my niece.

I got up there early (before 9) so I could watch Norah while my sister and my BIL went and got their taxes done.

Landry stayed home because Norah had been running a slight fever and I thought it was better to be safe than sorry with him. My sister thinks that she is getting her two year molars and that is why because she is stretching her jaw a lot and if she bites into certain things she starts crying.

Anyways so once taxes were done, my sister came with me to get my hair done.

Your dying to see pictures right? LOL

Well here ya go...

It is hard to see the purple in the first picture so I used the flash in the second one.

We decided to go purple because Aaron thought blue but his second choice was purple. Purple was chosen because the blue she has is very dark- not a turquoise blue like I would want and she said the blue tends to fade to green. Yeah I dont want to be walking around with green hair.

I LOVE the cut and color but next time I am going to have her do more purple. She said she didnt want to overdo it the first time. LOL.

We went to the mall afterwards to see about new jeans for me at the Buckle. I said once I reached goal weight that I would buy a NICE pair of jeans and not just a Meijer pair. But after trying on a lot of them, the pair I needed and liked, they didnt have in my size. Translated...they were stretch jeans and the pair that I tried on currently fit but would be too big two hours from now after they stretched. So, no new jeans for me.

So then I hung back at my sisters house for the rest of the afternoon. We were talking about a wedding she is going to be in and she showed me the dress and shoes. I had her try them on so I could see them together (green dress, purple shoes) and it was quite pretty. Then I thought maybe I could fit into her dress. Nope. Hips were too big. Thats ok.

But then my sister said "Well have you ever tried on my wedding dress?" Um no. She never had it washed because she was going back and forth about having it cut short to wear as a regular dress. So we pulled it out...and I put it on...and

It fricken fit! And I got it zipped up!

Oh holy crud!

Oh happy day!!

Never in a million bagillion years would I think that I could fit into my sisters wedding dress!

How fun!!

So then that evening my sister talked me into watching Norah while they went out for a while. So I never did get to run on the treadmill.

I ended up getting to my parents house at 10:30 that night. I stayed up a bit because I actually beat my parents back from their banquet.

So they got back about 11 or so and we chatted for a bit and went to bed.

Sunday I got up and we got ready and went to Home Depot for paint samples.

Then we spent the afternoon picking out paint and then my dad says "well if we are painting, why not get new counters and floor?". Their house is now 15 years old (I think) and the formica they have in the kitchen while beautiful (it was just before the granite style formica came out but sort of looks like that) is showing its age. And their floor is a linoleum that is starting to separate at the seams and they had been kicking around the idea of replacing that for a while too. So then we looked at new floor and new counters. I think we are pretty good with what they selected. It will just depend on the counters in person because we selected from looking at the colors on her iPad.

I did pretty good with my eating this weekend until last night.

Saturday I had packed food so I had a couple hard boiled eggs, a Larabar, some cheese sticks, a clementine, some pretzels, peanuts etc throughout the day. Sunday I had a cheese stick, hard boiled egg, english muffin with PB, some flavored cheese that my mom bought at a womens show (minimally processed and had not a lot of additives), some crackers, some deli turkey, some cinnamon sugar stick things. Then when I got home after 6pm it sort of went to hell. LOL. I had some hummus, celery, tuna, wine. Then I made popcorn for Aaron and ended up having a bowlful. A big bowl. Then some cookies. Sounds not bad right? Well my tongue still feels salty. So I know I gained because of the popcorn. Instead of popcorn I should of worked out. But oh well! New day today.

Weight today: 157.0

I am really not worried about it. Back to the normal routine today and I will be working out with On Demand throughout the day to burn the calories and sweat the water retention out.

So today...

Today I plan on doing the two cardio kickboxing shows again to get a good burn going this morning. Then this evening I am hoping to go to K's house to run sprints. I found a thing on that says to get rid of stubborn body fat, the best thing to do is run sprints. So 15 seconds of high intensity, 45 seconds of low intensity, repeat 12 times and then low intensity for 30-40 minutes. So I want to try it and see how it goes. They also have a supplement that is supposed to help with the stubborn body fat and the bodybuilders seem to swear by it so I may end up trying it.

Food for the day:
Breakfast- hard boiled egg, coffee, english muffin with PB
Lunch- scallions, hummus, celery, turkey or roast beef
Dinner- clementine, cheese stick and maybe some minestrone soup. YUMMY!
Snack- apple with PB

Thats the news for now. Happy Monday everyone!

Tip of the Day: I found this really interesting about tightening loose and sagging skin
