Oh man sorry I have not blogged since when? Last Wednesday?! I have just been SOOOO busy! I’ll do a quick recap today then I will have photos tomorrow I PROMISE!!
Thursday was a more relaxing day for me- I first went to the laundromat (or however it’s spelled) and got our blankets washed in those huge 55 gallon washers. Then after that the day was all me I went to see the nutritionist and I actually really liked her- she said overall I made good choices and gave me a breakdown chart of recommended portions good for my height and weight. She recommended 1200-1500 calories like I have been doing- and said on average from the two weeks I gave her I was eating about 1400-1450 a day. She also noticed days I got more protein for breakfast I did better overall that day. She also recommended that I snack in between breakfast and lunch because usually I don’t eat for like 4-5 hours between breakfast and lunch- which yeah makes sense cuz sometimes I am STARVING when lunch comes around. She also asked me about working out- and I told her that I try but am not good at it- so she asked if I can give 10 minutes a day. I said ten minutes? I can do that! She said yup most people go oh ten minutes? That’s it?! And then when they do their ten usually find they want to keep going- and if they don’t- well then at least you did 10 minutes… I understood her logic- so I was like yeah I’d be one of those people who would go longer… That sneaky nutritionist :p I have a follow up with her in January. So she gave me some great tips that starting today I’m following- yay!
After that went and got my hair cut- love the new cut it’s so CUTE My hair dresser loves me cuz I always change it up- I’m not the same old boring “just a trim please…” After that went next door and got my eyebrows waxed and a manicure and pedicure… OH YEAH… felt good but I have ticklish feet so when she was doing that callous scrape I kept laughing lol. I got my nails painted a dark gold color- they were fabulous- I didn’t take a picture darn lol- now they are kind of chipped- I know for sure a mani should last longer than a few days- but whatever- you get what you pay for. The mani/pedi as $36 and the eyebrows + upper lip waxing was $13. The haircut with tip was $42.
Friday morning we got up and hubby needed new clothes and shoes for the wedding so we popped over to Kohls and he got some nice shoes, new slacks, new undershirts, a dress shirt, a belt, and black socks. I found a bra to use with my dress and then I also got some cute shoes to match as well. Then up we went to Orange County! It was a smooth ride overall- I drove (which made it smoother lol) and we got to the hotel around 2 pm. The wedding didn’t start till 6:30 pm so we just spent some quality time together… And then we watched TV and got ready.
The wedding was BEAUTIFUL- the bride was beautiful- the groom was hilarious (we were friends of the bride), he kept messing up his lines when the minister was speaking lol. At one point he tried to kiss the bride DURING the ceremony and the minister (who was the bride’s brother- got ordained just for this) was like “uh uh! You can’t do that until I tell you to!” lol.
That morning I weighed in at 205- a number I haven’t seen since the days of Moses… Okay well maybe not THAT long ago- but you get my drift! I felt great and the dress fit perfectly but omg- at the wedding- there was so much variety of food! They had a cheese TABLE and a vegetable table. I attacked the veggie table first so that I wouldn’t load up on too much other stuff. Had some cheese, then they didn’t have a sit down dinner so hubby and I went over to the buffet line and we had a bit of everything they offered- potstickers (soo good), egg rolls, meatballs, rolls (they had whole wheat ones!!), ham and beef deli meat, and a chocolate FONDU FOUNTAIN!! *dies* I had two strawberries with chocolate and a mini puff and a slice of pineapple.
I filled up and ate a bit of everything- funny thing I gave hubby my meatballs and ate his potstickers. Then we danced! Hubby is a terrible dancer but it was still fun (he thinks about it too much IMO I’m like dude no one cares WHAT you are doing just have fun!)
Oh and it was open bar so I had two drinks (hey for open bar that’s good on my part!) Champagne for toasting and an apple martini (YUM). People were so smashed they were dancing up a storm and the music was great! Lots of older songs like Twist and Shout, and they played this Grease Mix- it was awesome! People were singing along and so on. I was told AFTER the party ended (at 11) that people went to a bar across the street and got even MORE hammered lol.
Around 10 my husband started to not feel well- he had a bad headache come on all of a sudden and was starting to get dizzy. I decided then it was time to say goodbye so we went to say goodbye to the bride and groom, hubby felt bad- but with his MS I don’t like him to feel uncomfortable, so we went home and I put him to bed.
The next morning we had brunch with the bride and groom and a few other people that stayed around. A bunch of people were nursing hangovers lol. Oh and I forgot to tell you- the bride and groom had a huge announcement last night! THE BRIDE IS PREGNANT! AWWW- just two months pregnant- they are so happy- they have been together like 8 years- she told me they had actually started trying already and were happy they got pregnant so fast. I’m sure she felt the clock ticking since she’s 32- but she’s in amazing shape as it is.
After brunch we drove home and did the finishing touches on the house cuz my mom was coming home at 11 am the next morning!
Sunday got up and got ready to get my mom- and I was nervous so nervous that while I gave her a hug I didn’t even cry. Got home and let my mom rest a bit- then she did her “inspection” and walked around the house. Course she didn’t find anything wrong… But she did comment later that night she was going to “clean” tomorrow (ug mom really?). I was like whatever I’m gonna be at work- you have fun! lol.
We took her out to lunch and got home and I started my barley soup- OH YEAH- just a huge pack of barely, some salt, a tablespoon of oil tons of water, a few chicken cubes, and chickpeas- let cook for a few hours until it starts to cream up and DONE! Oh man good stuff! I made a huge pot full- that’ll last all week
This morning the apparent damage has been done! Woke up today at 211! BAD BAD! I definitely had to remedy that- I account part of it for the evil bag of funyuns with hot sauce and lemon my sister and I had last night… hehee oops!
Tomorrow’s blog nothing but pictures I promise! AND it’s back on the bandwagon today!
PS- Oh yeah forgot the sites were down a few days- probably good thing I just waited until today to blog again
