New Family



Here is a picture from Jamaica, just a teaser :) I'll post all about it later on this week!


I had a weekend full of B's family, filled with good and bad sentiments. We had a Christianing and a funeral. It was really good to get to know all of that side of his family, it is huge. I just wish I could have gotten to know an additional member before it was too late.






This is going to be a short post because I'm exhausted and I still have to run tonight. Food wise I did great until the wake and funeral. I also did amazing exercise wise all week except those two days. Unfortunately it was Sunday and Monday so I weighed in and only lost 1.5lbs. I know I should be happy but I really worked so hard all week and I know I was down more on Sunday morning before I ate so much so I'm bitter. Hopefully I can make it back this week.

Runnin, Runnin

I ran 6 miles on Sat am, felt great! Then yesterday, 2 miles drove me crazy, WTF!!! Does that ever happen to you? One day you can run forever another you can't even bust out one! This weekend was as busy as I said.

Friday: Work, Friends bday at San Loco Taco in NYC. Amazing! I got a soft taco with a layer of guacomola, then hard taco, then chicken with lettuce & tomato, very tasty, I had three! If there is a food I could win an eating contest in it would be Tacos. Seriously perfect food! Then we went to a cupcake place, http://www.sugarsweetsunshine.com/. This place is one of those places that you didn't know about and you don't know why! B got a pudding, it's egg nog flavored pudding layered with pumpkin cake. I definately grabbed a couple of spoonfuls of that one!

Saturday: Woke up, ran, went to friends baby's 1st year old bday party. It was at a firehouse near Philly, but they did such a great job turning that firehouse into a little carnival. I am definately taking mental notes on how to decorate my baby's 1st bday! After the long trip home we had about an hour and then off to NYC again for B's bday! He's a steak and potato's guy so he picked Keens Steakhouse. This place is oooooooooooooold school! I had the short rib, it was awesome, but I barely got half down. B got the Prime Rib, it was MASSIVE and he got the majority down. It was a really great time and we all had fun (went with two other couples).

Sunday: Woke up early, took Clyde on a super long walk, then brunch with B's parents, guess where, NYC! This was the last stop on my food weekend, and we went out with a bang. Five Points is where we went and I have NEVER been anything but in heaven when eating here! This place is off the chain when it comes to brunches! I had the Pork Belly Hash, it was really tender and the sauce was spicy and tangy. Perfection! If you go, definately get the Polenta and try the biscuits, you will not be dissappointed.

Even though it is Wednesday already, this week is going fast. I didn't weigh in this week, but I will definately weigh in on Tues next week. I have been walking at lunch the weather in NYC is calling me around lunch time! I got the pics from Jamaica uploaded so I will try post some tomorrow, god how I miss it! Until next time!

March Madness

I'm not referring to the basketball tournament! I am referring to my crazy schedule for the month of March. Two of my favorite people were born in March, my Fiance and my best friend :) Also happening in March: another good friends bday, friends baby's 1st bday, Fiance's dad's bday, Christening, bachelorette party, wedding, family health stuff, training for 1/2 marathon. My March is just madness!!!!

I got sick this week and I'm hoping that is it for the month because I can't afford to be sick! I didn't run for a week because I just wasn't feeling well and needed to give my body some rest. I did get some walks in on the super random nice days we got in NJ, Clyde (my massive mutt) was very appreciative. Somehow I also lost weight :) I lost 1.2lbs this week when I weighed in and that made me a happy camper! Since weigh in, I did not continue to track, but I did be very aware of what I was putting in my mouth. I am feeling optimistic about next week's weigh in.

I plan to get a run in tomorrow. I hope to do at least 7 or 8 miles, but if I can only do 6 I would be ok with that too since I took the week off. My goal is to be down to 170 by my best friends wedding (March 30th). I weighed in at WW this week at 175.2, I weighed myself this am and I was an even 174, so I am progressing in the right direction. My dress for that night is so pretty. I will take a picture of it when I get it back from the tailor. I had to get it taken in a lot, yayayaya, although my wallet is saying noooooooooooo. B and I have a black tie wedding to go to and I was thinking of wearing it there. I'll post it up and if anyone reads this let me know if you think it's appropriate. I will be wearing the dress after the wedding obviously! I know I said it before but I really have to say I love the last two bridesmaid dresses I had! Excellent choice girls!

Food wise this weekend will be ok I think. Since I am coming off a little sickness, I probably won't drink anything and that helps! We are going to go out to celebrate lots of things but I will try and keep a cool head and definitely try and take some pictures! My March is crazy, but it's fun to that I can just post it up and document it all! Until next time cyber diary!

.....

I'm exhausted. With all the good news, unfortunately there has been some bad. I really just want to go home, but if I go home I just have to go right back out to take care of something. I'm burning on both ends right now. Will update. Only upside, my appetite has taken a backseat :)
