I've started like 3 blogs this week but got distracted with other things, boy it's been a busy week.

So here's the run down.

Thurs- Worked during the day and then made it to the Picasso in Chicago exhibition at the Art institute. The hubs and i had lots of fun doing that. Ate a quick dinner at Roti, it was ok.

Fri- Hooky day with the Hubs! We both took a much needed day off from work. We spent the day wandering on Devon Ave, going in and out of little shops and grocery stores. We had a gift certificate for an Indian restaurant and had some really good eats. My favorite which is probably not that great for me was delicious! Also went to this really cool bookstore that had some interesting looking books but what did I buy? A bollywood workout DVD, hehe! It was my reward for my 10 pound loss!

Sat- Started good, went to brunch at my friends house. I made a fruit salad, did not eat any sweets, and stayed with my 2 mimosa limit. I was supposed to exercise that night but I helped clean and then had to get my purse which I left behind at my friends. I went to pick it up and we ended up staying to watch Harold and Maude, and I polished off the lasst of the mimosas. Whoops!

Sun- Went to my in-laws, lets just say I did not do so well. Although I was the victor in the easter egg hunt once again. We had planned to make up for not working out on Sat, but by the time we got home it was 9 pm and we were tired, and we let all the excuses overtake us and we lazily watch a movie instead.

Mon- Back on track, worked out, feeling guilty that I pretty much have not participated in the Team Challenge. Also realizing I have a real problem with weekends, sticking to a plan and also having balance between making all the right choices and having some fun.

Tues-Good news!!! Lost 1.5 inches from my waist and hips and 1 inch from my thighs, Woohoo!!

Did Jillian Michaels 30 day Shred- Eek was i feeling it during this. Had a stressful day at work and was tired but i made it through.

Weds- My muscles are sore from Jillian yesterday. Tonight I'm going totally old School and working out with Gilad, my dad and I used to work out to his TV show when I was in High School! hehe!

Well if the scale isn't kind tomorrow i only have myself to blame!

    It's shameful to admit but I have lived in Chicago for about 7 years and have never gone to the Art Institute. I need to remedy that and soon! Glad you have seen awesome progress! Keep up the good work!
