The weekend was absolutely wonderful. I flew my younger nephew to Dallas for the weekend. I had brought his older brother down here from Kentucky when he turned 14, so it was MD's turn. Here are some pictures:

We made our own species of bird...nothing beats a Whooping Swooper!
We had such a fantastic time. I'm so fortunate to have so many great kids in my life. This particular kid is so loving and quick with a hug. He is creative and walks his own path. He doesn't mind being on his own, but he was great to talk with. This is the most one-on-one time we have had together and I loved every minute of it.
After I took him to the airport, I had my first eyelash fill appointment. All went well, but I remembered that I couldn't get them wet for 24-48 hours which meant no CrossFit yesterday. I also failed to log my food. I would say it was all a big fat failure, especially since I didn't get to workout at all yesterday. BUT, it wasn't. I had a wonderful time. I ate in moderation. We stayed active and didn't mindlessly snack. And I was 2.2 pounds down for the week. That is actually quite a success!
Last night BFF & I went to see Godspell. It was really good! We commuted together last night and this morning though, so still no CrossFit. I'm determined to go tomorrow!
I did work out at lunch today thought. 10:00 elliptical warm up. Then 15:00 on the minute, 3 burpees and 3 dumbbell thrusters (squat with overhead press) which was WAY harder than I thought. It is basically :18 of work with :42 rest and I was wheezing my lungs out. I had to take an extra 1:00 break after 5 rounds, but then I finished all 15 rounds! I completed the workout with 50 sit ups.
I feel wonderful! So much better than yesterday, it just isn't even comparable.
Today's food plan:
Breakfast: Latte. Hard boiled egg. Babybel.
Lunch: BFF's chicken fricassee. (It is both healthy and delicious!!)
Snack: mixed nuts
Dinner: Tortilla soup with a serving of tortilla chips
