Long update with lots of pictures

Sunday, February 21, 2010

First off sorry I have been a little disconnected. If I haven't responded to any of your blogs etc. I've just been busy. :o) Hope everyone is doing great.

The first update is on my streaking..........drum roll..........................
..I now have a 7 week streak for all my goals!!!!! Yeah!!!!!!!! I'm very excited . I had my second wiegh-in for the contest that started a month ago at work and I was down 7 lbs.

Here is what has happened the last week

For Valentines day hubby and I decided that we were going to go out to dinner Sat. night just the two of us. We went to a place that we had never been called delectables. It was sooooo goood and I think pretty healthy. I tracked it as best I could. First I had a cup of black bean soup, very yummy

Here is the dish I got it was Dill Asparagus crepes with jasmine rice

Then I had a piece of flourless chocolate cake. If you look at the strawberry you can see about how small the piece was, but oh so good.

Then Monday I was off to Boston for a thing for work. Here is a picture of the hotel it was very nice

After we finally got to the hotel and checked in a bunch of us met up for dinner and the hotel's resterant. Here is what I had minus the yolk of the egg. Brown rice with broccoli, soy beans, bell peppers, onion, etc with asparagus, and an egg white. I also had a cup of tomato soup.

Then after dinner a few of us piled into one of the peoples rental car. Most of us didn't get a car. We headed off to Cheers in Boston

Here is me sitting at the bar. I opted not to have a drink and just hang out. After they had a quick drink we went back to the hotel to get some sleep

When I got back to the hotel I did my biggest loser DVD from my laptop with the small wieghts I brought. I was glad I stuck to it. The next morning came very early, spent all day at a strategic workshop. I did really well and ate the stuff that was healthier and suplimented with stuff I brought and didn't have any of the junk they provided. Then it was back to the hotel. Well it wasn't that easy while we were inside it snowed a bit and the hotel didn't want to have the shuttle drive in the weather. So I went with one of the other people at the meeting that took her rental to the meeting. We had to have someone help us on what we needed to do with all the white stuff. LoL We were both desert rats. Here is the rental being de-snowed.

Here is the road on the way back to the hotel. Do you see the stop sign?

Then we decided to eat dinner at the hotel again due to the weather I had the same yummy dinner. Then I went back up to my room, here is a look out the window of my room

Then I got changed so I could head to the workout room

The machines were cool they had an Ipod plug in with charger and they actually had cable in them So I stayed there for an hour and 40 min and watched the olympics while I worked out

The next morning it was back to the airport for a day of travel home from Boston. (For those of you that don't know I live in Tucson, AZ) There was still lots of snow all over here is the plane

After we got there we went to scope out what we might be able to find for lunch. I was so excited I found a great place they had steamed brown rice, veggies, black beans, and baked fries. OK so adding the baked fries was a little much, but I had to try them :o)

Then when I finally got back to Tucson Wed night Trever and the kids were waiting by baggage :o)

So Thursday was off to work and Friday my son Chance (9) had surgery scheduled to get his tonsils and adnoids out. Here he is in the waiting room

Then here he is right before he went in with me

Then heere is after :o(

It's been a really long week, and now the next weekend is almost over :o( My son is doing better and last night my mom watched him so Trever and I could go out to dinner last night. We went to the same place as last weekend. I had the same yummy dish, looked a little different but basically the same thing

So now it's Sunday night and we are going to watch a movie, I'm going to exercise, and I hope to get to spend some time sparking. Thanks to everyone who reads this I know it's long, but hopefully all the pictures help.

Hope everyone has a great week. Hugz!!!!!!

    I love all the pictures. I also appreciate the efforts that you took while on your bussiness trip. I just came back from a business trip, and I can truly understand how difficult it can be. I was so impressed by your determination to exercise.

    I loved your blog Amy!
    I also love Delectables. They've been around for a long time and have stayed consistently good. What a nice place to go for your Valentine's dinner.
    Thanks for posting all of the great photos. I love seeing pictures of the snow.
    You certainly did well on your trip with food and exercise. Congratulations. How cool to have exercise equipment where your ipod plugs in. I want that at my gym emoticon But I know what they will tell me if I request it. emoticon
    Most of all I'm glad your son is doing ok. He does not look happy in the photo. I remember that operation so well. The big thing was that you got ice cream after the operation. But it tasted yucky. I don't know if they still promise that. That is 40+ years ago. The parents were not allowed in the operating room. I remember them putting a black mask over my face and telling me to count to ten. I was thinking they will not be able to put me out...then I woke up. LOL. Sorry for reminiscing.
    I hope you have a wonderful week back with your family!
