Well, Hells Bells!!

I've been messing around with this 1/2 pound for four weeks now!!! Up and down...I have GOT to get more disciplined!! Up last week - down this week.

One of my problems is that I love my wine on the weekends! And last week, David had an issue with his knee and postponed our walk for several days. I walked alone at the lake on Saturday, but Sunday it was unbearably hot so I didn't go. This week we've been to the gym to walk only twice and will go again tonight, but I have to do more.

Back to the veggies!

Carb Addict & 1/2


Week In Review

This week was an interesting one! Lots of parties and activities that normally would NOT be conducive to losing weight or sticking to program. But I did my best and that's all I can do!

And, of course, it all started on FRIDAY EVENING!
We went to the Ft. Lauderdale Starlight Musicals concert in the park. Where we listened to the Valarie Tyson Band play classic R&B sounds!

On Saturday we headed out to Pump It Up for a birthday party where the kids had a blast running around and jumping, climbing and sliding! And where Miss Bugs looked at Hubby and declared "THIS PLACE IS AWESOME!" Too cute for words!

Then Saturday night the Kiddos were dropped off with family and Hubby & I headed out for a surprise birthday dinner at the wonderful Cafe Vico where we enjoyed a wonderful evening with old and new friends in celebration of Cabana Boy's (our friend) birthday. I found myself surrounded by good wine, even better food and the willpower to order the grilled chicken topped with arugula salad and it was delicious!

Sunday, of course, was filled with all things Father's day! We spent the day swimming, grilling out and enjoying the Florida summer! And let me tell you...there was a feast! Steak, Chicken, Baked Beans, Pasta Salad, Corn, Mahi Mahi, Burgers, Goombay Smashes, Chips, Dips, fresh fruit and of course, CAKE! But I was good! I had a small spoon full of beans, a small piece of steak and chicken and a little pasta salad. AND NO CAKE!

This week I only walked on Monday. Tuesday Hubby was running errands gearing up for his fishing trip on Wednesday and on Wednesday he was working late. Then, as it often does here in Summer, Thursday was filled with thunder storms. So there really isn't much to report in this exercise report. I did run and play with the kiddos at Pump it Up (and I'm not joking when I tell you that those obstacle courses are hard to do!) and had fun swimming on Sunday. Not too bad, I suppose.

As for the weigh in this morning.....THAT WAS FANTASTIC! I must have done something right over these past 7 days because I lost 2.5 lbs! I was so happy and pleased when I saw the number on the scale this morning! Not too shabby! I'm down a total of 15 lbs and the best part of the whole thing.....

I AM ABLE TO WEAR 2 PAIR OF JEANS THAT I HAVEN'T BEEN ABLE TO ZIP UP IN 2 YEARS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

If that doesn't keep me going.....I don't know what would!
