Back to reality

Today. A Tuesday. But it feels like a Monday. But, worse than a Monday, because we had three days of weekend, instead of two.

Anyways, super tired and out of it today. It was a long weekend, an excellent one, but a long one.

Friday, not only did the Brewers win, but my tailgating food was a grand slam (sorry, awful baseball metaphor, I’ll never do it again). Here’s what it turned out like:
The chicken was delicious. Simply grilled with BBQ sauce before going to the game, then just placed on the grill in tinfoil and reheated. It was delicious. And, much better for you than burgers, brats, and more burgers.

Saturday night, we went to dinner at this amazing tapas restaurant called La Merenda. It was delicious and I love the style of eating at a tapas restaurant. I’ll tell you more about it tomorrow. Then, I dragged Matt to see Sex and the City II. And it was everything I expected, which really wasn’t much. It definitely made the list of good guilty-pleasure movies.

Sunday, we went to a friend’s graduation luau. It was a beautiful day to sit outside and visit with friends. This was my splurge day. There was delicious food and a ton of drinks. My entire family was there and so were lots of friends. It was a great day. (Also, there were a lot of people I haven’t seen in a while. AKA: a lot of people who haven’t seen me since I lost weight. And, I’m not going to lie, all the notice it got made me feel great about myself. And, less guilty about eating and drinking a ton, Oh well. I deserved it. I worked hard. Longest interjection ever).

Here are some pics from the party:
Here's me and the graduate, Brianna. Don't hate on the hat. You love it. You know you do.

Here's Matt and I. You can hate on his hat.

Here's Matt, myself, and my parents. Doesn't it just feel like the tropics?

From left, my brother, me, Brianna, and her parents.

As you can see from the pictures, good times were had by all.

And, finally, yesterday we had a picnic out my parent’s house with the fam. We played lots of cribbage, my brother grilled some delicious salmon, and Jax got to run himself ragged with the neighbor’s dog.

All in all, it was a perfect weekend. And, the best part, had a weigh-in Sunday morning at the gym, and came in at 134.4!!!! Yes! Hit the under 135 mark!

Think the splurging on Sunday and Monday may have put me up a half-pound or so, but since I saw 134.4 with my own eyes, we’re calling it that for this week.

I think I deserve a double-cheeseburger.

Just kidding. I’m reaching for a turkey sandwich as we speak.

  1. I can't believe you could look more beautiful and confident than you used to, but it's true. I especially love how great your hair and skinny minny self look in the last pic. Love!
