Weekend Recap and it's already Tuesday

Tuesday, July 09, 2013

Hmmmm. where to start?? Friday after work I drove my friend to the airport. On the way home me and Buster stopped at a park for a nice walk! :) It was fun!

I saw this incredible sunset on the way home!

I got home around 8:30 in the evening and me and my boyfriend had plans to watch the fireworks and walk the waterfront. Well he was fast asleep when I got home (tennis tired him out) I was disappointed of course but decided not to let it ruin my night. So I put Buster to bed and went myself. I walked the waterfront and ended up running into some friends, watched the fireworks and had one beer (oops!)

I'm glad I made the best of it, and I did lots of walking Friday and had a good run friday morning so it was overall an active day!!

Saturday morning I went to watch my friend in her dragon boat tournament, it was really cool!

Saturday evening my bf wanted to BBQ (bacon cheeseburgers of course!) but I opted for making chicken kabobs!

I was proud for resisting the delicious bacon cheeseburger, but I just couldn't turn down the blueberry ice cream :( Or the beer we sat and had on the deck afterwards and talked the evening away together, blah. I had a small portion of ice cream though, and stopped after one beer! Weekends are tough sometimes. As much as I did try to stay on track there seems to always be a little something. At least I didn't throw in the towel completely.

Sunday morning me and Buster hit the dusty trails! We got up early (6:30 am) to try and beat the heat but it was still 25 at that hour! We had record breaking heat here this weekend, it was crazy!! We still had fun!

Tired pup


Sunday evening I made a big batch of homemade chicken/brown rice/veggies/green curry for lunches!!

Because I ran Sunday I slept in Monday. I weighed in Monday morning and was disappointed to see 178.4 :( I know I had beer twice on the weekend, and ice cream twice too! We also had record breaking heat and as much as I tried to keep my water up I still knew I was swollen from the insane heat. I had a really good nutrition day yesterday and it rained and the heat broke so I decided to weigh in again this morning and it was down to 177.0! Quite a difference one day made there!

This morning me and Buster got up again for our morning run! Beautiful sunrise!

Buster sure gets tired out! haha

This morning I had a banana/almond butter/ 1/2 of a whole wheat wrap for post workout 245 cal

breakfast, granola, yogurt, blueberries, raspberries 216 cal

Mid morning I had a coffee (just milk!) and a go pure Mayan Dark Chocolate Spiced! 142 cal

For lunch I'm having my green chicken curry 431 cal

Afternoon snack will be an apple 72 cal

And I made this for dinner last night and will have leftovers tonight, halibut, sweet potatoes and edamame!! YUM and only 270 cal!

So my total calories today are 1376! I know it's a bit higher than 1200 but I did run this morning and I walk a ton to and from work so I'm okay with that!!
