Gettting back in the groove...

Hi all!  I haven't been blogging, so you know what that means.  :-)  Last week, I had some amazing dinners and so much business that there was no time to work out.  Then I went on vacation to see my brother's family and although I did get a workout in, it was vacation with all sorts of bad eating and lots of drinking.  So now I'm back and instead of just coasting through to the weekend and starting hard next week...I'm actually getting myself together and pledging to get the vacation bloat off before my Challenge weigh in next week.  I have seven days!

My plan for the week:

Today - I worked out at lunch.  Seeing as the A/C is struggling in my office today, this was a big one.  My super awesome BFF picked up some My Fit Foods at lunch today so instead of canned soup, I have flat iron steak tacos.  Woohoo!  Tonight we are meeting friends at the Cheesecake Factory (not my choice.)  I did see that they have a Skinnylicious menu.  Has anyone tried it?

Tomorrow - Lunch workout and Jazzercise.  Have MFF for lunch and some soup for dinner.

Thursday - Back to CrossFit!  (maybe.)  (probably.)  Lunch workout.  Jazzericse if I bail on CrossFit.  But I'm not going to.  (I hope.) 

Friday - CrossFit (for sure!!)

Now back to that vacation:

I flew into Indianapolis and spent about five hours shopping.  My two rules were:
  1. I couldn't buy anything that wasn't on sale.
  2. I couldn't buy anything that didn't look great!
I didn't buy this dress (it wasn't on sale!), but it did make me feel wicked skinny so I texted it to my mom.  :-)
 Then I met two of my long time besties for dinner.  I have known these girls most of my life and I love catching up with them.
Then I head to my brother's house.  It was so much fun hanging out with the family.  I love those kids.  I had lunch with my niece at her school on Friday and we all had family time for dinner.  Saturday, I went to my nephew's cross country meet and it was amazing.  For a milisecond, I almost wanted kids so I could go to that sort of stuff.  I got over it though. 

Saturday afternoon, I took my niece out for her birthday which is in a few weeks.  We had lunch at Genghis Grill (her pick), then had pedis and finished up with some ice cream.  It was fun girl time!  Her mouth is blue from the icee that started off the adventure.  Ha!
Saturday night, they hosted a back to school/end of summer party.  It was a really good time and I probably drank too much.  Go figure.  Sunday we spent the day out on their new boat.  I have burns and bruises all over myself, but it sure was fun!  Monday, we had a lazy day and ended my trip with their neighborhood Cardboard Boat Regatta.  My brother's boat won, of course.  But we didn't have any doubts!!

Me and my kiddos:

Hugs!!
