Wonderful Weekend

This weekend was great! My husband and I had an amazing date night on Friday, followed by my little brother's adoption party on Saturday and pumpkin carving with my in-laws on Sunday!

Date night #8 of 12
Yesterday was unseasonably warm so my husband and I enjoyed what may be the last motorcycle ride of the year. We drove down a country road and I asked him to stop when I saw a park. Most parks in the area have walking trails so I was hoping there would be one at this park, too! Sure enough, we found our third new walking trail of the year. This completes another item on my 25 by 25 list! This trail was short but beautiful. Leaves covered the ground and it was the first time I could actually smell fall this year. The leaves cracked under our feet, we held hands and enjoyed the warm weather as we walked along.

The weekend of family gatherings was fun and wonderful for everything but my weight-loss efforts. I indulged in pizza and treats during both occasions this weekend. I didn’t think about what I was eating; instead, I enjoyed the moment, who I was with and what we were doing. It was relaxing but I am ready to snap back to the reality of watching what I eat and trying to eat healthier. I have been up in weight since my week of being sick two weeks ago (239 lbs) but I am happy to say that despite my indulgence I am down a pound, today (238 lbs).

My Workout Plan for the Week:

Monday – Gym
Tuesday – Rest
Wednesday – Gym
Thursday – Gym
Friday – Rest
Saturday – Rest

My Dinner Plan for the Week:

Monday – Fish with Side Salad
Tuesday – Cheesy Vegetable Chowder
Wednesday – Grilled Cheese and Tomato Soup
Thursday – Fish with Side Salad
Friday – Date Night
Saturday – Grilled Cheese and Tomato Soup

I know that my meal plan looks a little off this week. My husband is out of the house from 7 a.m. – 10 p.m. Monday - Thursday week due to work and classes. I tried to use that as an opportunity to spend less on groceries this week. We are both looking forward to another date night on Friday since we won’t be seeing much of one another this week.
