A long day!!!

emoticon Saying it has been a weekend of indulging is putting it nicely. What started as a cookout among neighbors and friends yesterday turned into a weekend of forgetting everything healthy.

I got sidetracked yesterday talking to my mom, which meant I was rushing to get everything done. We had a great time at the cookout, and somehow I managed to stay within my calories range.

Today has been rough...3 attempts at going to the pool proved unsuccessful. I got in 30 mins of cardio in random ways while dealing with not having power. We had q minor storm move through that caused power outage in our town and surrounding areas for several hours. By the time we got power back, we had decided it was time to reheat leftovers and relax with the same neighbors. We had food food while the kids played together and the adults played some poker. It also meant we all had a few adult beverages... knowing that I stayed in my calorie range after all that means I didn't have great choices the first part of the day - and skipping lunch didn't help either.

Even though it has been an off weekend, I can say that I don't regret it. It has been awhile since we have relaxed and just had some fun with friends. It was needed and I'm glad we did it.

Tomorrow I will be back on track. We are hoping to make it to the splashpark and have some family fun in the sun!

    Sounds like a good day anyway! And you stayed within your calorie range, which didn't sound easy.
