The weekend went well. I've been within my calorie range since last Sunday every day except Saturday. So 7/8 days so far. This is a drastic improvement over the past month or so.

On Saturday, I got up at 7, did a 15 minute workout and then got my stuff together to head to northern VA. We picked up a friend in Richmond then headed to my dad's house. We all went to the shooting range and had a blast. J and our friend made some drinks at my dad's house before the show. My dad has a huge bar in his basement that rivals/surpasses a lot of public bars in relation to the variety and amount of alcohol (although he rarely drinks). My only downfall was candy. I turned down the drinks, but ate a lot of M&Ms. Like handfuls...

I'd never been to the Hamilton before and let me just say, it is AWESOME! It's set up like a comedy club with tables around a small stage and some standing room in the back. We went to see Les Claypool (lead singer/bassist from Primus). Once he came out, a lot of people went and stood right in front of the stage (including us). We're used to seeing him at a massive venue (music festival or other large venue), so being literally 5 feet away was crazy. It was set up like he was playing in your living room, talking to guests and really involving the crowd. It may be one of my top 5 favorite concerts ever.

I will admit that I had about 1 beer. J and our friend drank a ton, while I refilled maybe 1 inch of beer into my glass a few times over the course of 5 hours. 1 beer total is my conservative estimate. It was interesting to be sober when everyone else was drunk. It was a great perspective to see how loud and obnoxious people get when they've had a lot to drink. It really reinforced why I decided to stop drinking in the first place- because I was probably loud and obnoxious, but couldn't remember! I even got a ton of pictures that weren't blurry because I could hold still enough (without the flash).

I also woke up early enough to hang out with my dad for awhile before the guys woke up. We met friends for brunch at noon, so it was nice to have some time (as opposed to waking up at 11 and rushing around). I had a belgian waffle, which is totally bad for you, but I hadn't had one in like 5 years, so it was definitely savored. Still within calorie range for the day, although I was way under for protein and fiber for the day.
