I gotta go to bed!!!
I was up half the night, uncomfortable - hot - and BATHROOM!!
I drink wayyyy too much water at night. I have to stop!! I am up at least 2x during the night hitting the bathroom. Last night it was 3 or 4 times.
Result: A very short stint at the gym. Did treadmill only for 35 minutes and 450 calories burned.
Came home, had dinner, entered food and exercise and I am off to bed!
Have an absolutely wonderful weekend everyone. You're the BEST!

OK, so i found these flatbreads that are only 90 calories (they are more like a wrap) and i made myslf a turkey flatbread sandwich for dinner.
it was soooo filling along with my cucumber and tomato salad it's not even funny.
i am probably good for the night!!
no gym tonight, just taking the night off. did 7 days in a row, i deserve a break -- actually, i think i needed one. it has been taking more and more to work up a sweat, i must be getting comfy in my settings on the treadmill. that's why i upped the incline to 5. seems to do well for me.
going to foxwoods tomorrow. lol. yeah, i know, i went last wednesday too. this is the last time, i promise, at least for a little while, ok, more like a few months anyway.
will be headed to the gym after the casino.
taking hubby for some test in the am. it's a digestive issue and they have to put a camera down his throat while he is knocked out. sounds like fun, doesn't it. lol. after i bring him home, i'll be headed out.
he's gonna rest a little then head to conneticut to attend a 'retiring' dinner for one of his colleagues, so i don't really feel bad about going out. he won't get home til after 11pm.
11 days to go and i'll be on my way to the carribean!! WAHOO!!
my hubby is intent on joining this 'poker crawl'. it's where you hop from cabin to cabin to cabin and you pick up one card at each cabin. the last cabin (which is more like a mansion at sea) is where you put your hand together and see who wins. there is a $15 buy in and the winner gets the whole thing. it's more about just being silly and having a good time with people you don't know on the boat. crazy, huh.
well, gotta go shopping. still need cloths that fit for my cruise.

ok, so i am sooooo stuffed it isn't even funny
just had dinner
tomato, cucumber, pepper salad
4 oz filet mignon
stuffed is not the word. hubby did an absolutely AMAZING job with the filets on the barbeque and they were DELISH!! he absolutely outdid himself tonight. YUMMY.
stayed up late last night to watch the LOST finale. INTERESTING to say the least. Come to find out LOST was not the title because they were lost on an island BUT they were LOST SOULS that were not at peace and needed to let go to move on. Not how i pictured it ending at all.
my sox are winning the tampa bay rays right now!! wahoo!!
headed to watch (or try to) the rest of the game. i may end up falling asleep but, at least i'll have sweet dreams as i will fall asleep while they are winning.. LOL.

Nothing exciting went on this past week, other than the fact that I cannot seem to lose any weight. I am stuck at a major plateau, probably because I only have 2 weeks left with which to reach my goal and still have 10lbs to go.
Went to the gym 6 days. Up to a 3.5 and 4 incline on treadmill. Worked for 5 min on a 4.5 incline yesterday.
Went to Foxwoods on Wed and didn't quit when I was up $200, instead I quit when I was up only $60. Better than nothing and certainly better than being down. lol. It was fun. Decided on Subway while at the casino. The Jared specials were awesome. I had a turkey flatbread loaded with veggies and a bottle of water all for only $8. $8 at the casino for lunch is a HUGE SAVINGS both pocket wise and calorie wise. Good decision.
Thursday and Friday just average, other than the fact that for the past few weeks I've had to stop and put air in my car tires every other day, have a leak. That escalated to every day and today, Sunday, just got it fixed -- thank heavens we bought the 'road hazard' warrant when we bought the brand new tires 2 months ago.
Had dinner with my sister and brother-in-law last night. And today marks a day in history. I GOT A FRENCH MANICURE!! That was the first time I had ever gone to a salon and had a manicure - can you believe it. 45 years old and the first time!! Of course my sister had to hold my hand and get hers done too, lol. It was definitely an experience, and overall, a good one. Although I damaged one of my nails getting into her car. BUMMER. Not a huge deal, but I can certainly see it.
Hubby fixed the grill today so we will be grilling chicken on grill for dinner. Veggies and chicken, oooh I can't wait. I love food cooked on the grill. What is your favorite foods cooked on the grill? Fess up everyone, 'tis the season for grilling and I could use some great ideas to try out.
I hope all of you are well and kicking some weight loss butt!!
