Sorry for the late post...I guess I was in true vacation mode this weekend ;)
The whole weekend was really fun, but I still managed to work out a few times and stay on plan food-wise, although I did have to use a lot of my 35 weekly points. On Friday, I went on the elliptical for 43 minutes and I was able to go over 3 miles, so that was really good. I was obsessed with this new Shakira song, "Waka Waka Africa" and it really helped to keep me motivated throughout the workout. Whenever I started to slow down, I'd switch to that song and automatically my legs would start pumping faster ;)
Then, after the workout, I showered, put on a sundress, and went on a date with a new guy E. We went to a mexican restaurant a few blocks from my house, and we had a great time. I ordered fish tacos and only ate about half of my plate. I also munched on a few chips and drank two light beers. After dinner, we were still having a fun time so we walked to another bar close by and ordered TEQUILA SHOTS--my downfall. Anyway, we drank a little too much but it was a fun night :)
Then on Saturday I went to Belle Island--a very beautiful spot on the James River-- with A. We brought a picnic of sandwiches, fruit, beer, and pretzels and it was a good time, although I was a little tired and hungover from Friday night. Then, on Sunday morning, I went on a walk with JM and got a push pop (only 70 calories and definitely worth it because I felt like a little kid again).
Later on Sunday afternoon, I drove up to Falls Church for my parent's 4th of July picnic at the lake. The picnic was awesome--I got to see the family and a few friends came by as well. We ate pork roast, my mom's HOME-GROWN GREEN BEANS, cucumber salad, corn on the cob, and french bread. YUM. I also had 1 beer and 2 lagaritas (margaritas made with beer??). It was great seeing my family and my two friends, Eliza and Joe. The highlight of the night was trying fruitlessly to light some old, damp, last year's sparklers. For some reason, lighting the impossible sparklers was HILARIOUS--maybe everyone drank a little too much ;)
Then on Monday, I went out to breakfast with my old friend Jeff and then I headed back to Richmond. Once I got home, I went food shopping, and went to the HARDEST Body Jam class, EVER. But I stuck with the class, and got a good workout, even though I couldn't follow all the steps. I guess, practice makes perfect ;)
All in all, a very busy and fun 4th of July weekend. Unfortunately, it's time to get back to work. Oh well. Back to reality. I hope everyone has a good Tuesday.
