Happy Monday!! I'm so happy to finally have my groove back that even a Monday (and one that could be a holiday no less) isn't going to get me down. Today is weigh in day and I was kind of surprised to find myself only down 4 tenths, but hey it is the right direction! Plus, today I'm wearing a shirt with jeans that just two weeks ago, I couldn't have worn together. So yippee!
Friday night, BFF & I went to dinner at the Company Cafe. I found it by looking for a gluten-free friendly place in Dallas. It was so cool! Everything on the menu was gluten free, so BFF could order whatever she wanted. Unfortunately, I got stuck on my first bite of chicken risotto...bummer! I knew better than to eat that bite of chicken first. In fact, I had ordered a side of mashed cauliflower just for that reason. I knew that if I ate a few bites of it first, I would be good to go. But they forget to bring it at first, so I just forged ahead. So dumb. Anyway, I did have a bite of gluten free cake and it was DELISH! The show was fun, as usual and we even ran into an old friend.
Saturday was a lazy, lazy day. I slept in and alternated between reading and watching tv both on the couch and in bed. It was ridiculous and awesome!
Sunday morning, I got up early and went to meet the fabulous Ronnie at Fair Park in Dallas to do the Color Run. The idea for this unique 5K is that each kilometer has a color station where you are pelted with a different color. We thought it sounded fun and signed up. We looked so pristine before (fyi...I'm sporting the AWESOME gear my Secret Santa Lyla got me):
The rest of the day was filled with errands, chores and some laziness. It was the first weekend in a long while that I didn't have a jam-packed weekend and it was nice. Next weekend isn't too busy, but Saturday is our TX BOOBs Waco meet up. I'm definitely looking foward to that!!
Before I get to that, I have my monthly dinner on Tuesday and more theater tickets on Wednesday. Plus at least five workouts! :) Oh, and Ash Wednesday and the start of Lent... I mentioned last week that I'm going to be writing letters each day during Lent to different people in my life to let them know how much I appreciate them. I can't wait to get started! I have made my list. I think I have decided that I'm going to draw a new name each day so there is no "order".
Hope this week is a great one for everyone!!
