Weekend Recap

I hope everyone is having a delightful Monday!

We saw American Hustle on Friday night.  I enjoyed it, but not nearly as much as I did Silver Linings Playbook last year.  The costumes and such were fantastic and Jennifer Lawrence did an amazing job!

Saturday I spent the day cooking.  At least it felt like it.  I realized that the recipe I had chosen required me to cook a whole other recipe first.  The Char Sui Pork was delicious, but the fried "rice" was just okay.  I think it will take a while for me to get used to cauliflower as rice.  But I did it.  Plus on Saturday the Saints and the Colts both lost.  So BFF and I are sad.  But the Hoosiers won, so that was good. 

Sunday I watched more football and finally took down my Christmas decorations.  My goal for the first 6 months of 2014 is to organize my household a bit.  I want to purge some things.  My thought process will be to pretend I'm moving in July (I'm not) and prepare for that.  Let's see if it works.

Saturday at Jazzercise I tweaked my back a little bit.  Nothing big, but I didn't go to CrossFit this morning because I figured lifting weights over my head would only exacerbate it.  So I'm taking today off and I will be back to working out tomorrow.  Not CrossFit though because we are sitting court side at the Mavericks tonight (aren't I so fancy?) so I will be out late.

My official weight loss for this week was 3.4 pounds.  Nice!  I know it will slow down some now, but it certainly would be awesome to lose a couple pounds this next week.  My success so far certainly motivates me to keep going.

Today's food plan:

Breakfast:  Eggbeaters with breakfast sausage.
Lunch:  Leftover char sui pork with mixed veggies.
Snack:  Grapes and a hard boiled egg.
Dinner:  I'm eating at the VIP buffet at the game (I told you I was fancy.  Ha!) so I will just have to do my best.  My goal is to stick to the meat and veggies and avoid the dessert table.  I kept telling myself that if I was good over the weekend, I would allow myself a glass of wine or bourbon tonight.

I'm very eager to get into my smaller clothes.  I'm at the point now where my current clothes are just fitting better (i.e. the way they are supposed to fit) so I need to lose another 10 pounds or so to start getting into the smaller stuff.  I'm getting there though!

you've inspired me! I'm getting a smidgen of an unfill so I can eat more meat and veggies. I will just do a bit more pre planning

I want to know how you get court side tickets! You totally rock. I think you're secretly famous and haven't told us yet.
Great job on the loss. You're amazing!
