Fast Lane

I feel like my life is on a fast lane and probably will be until our wedding.  Every day on our weekend is packed with invites to choose, flowers to look at, songs to select, etc.  I love it, I do, but I understand how people elope.  It is exhausting!  I am excited it is less than 6 months away.  There are two huge motivators for me, one my dress is in, so healthiness is taking its priority right now and two, I get to marry my best bud!  April 4th is our seven year anniversary and we are going back to the place we had our official first date as boyfriend and girlfriend.  That was actually on April 30th, but we say our anniversary is April 4th because that was our official first date, although we didn't start going "steady" until April 30th. 

Atlantic City was sooooooo much fun!  We gambled and gambled and gambled.  We played craps mostly and B was really lucky that night.  I had ups and downs but overall between the two off us we ended up winning $400, any night that we walk away not losing is good to me!!!!  We also had an amazing dinner with great friends.  Seriously, one of the more fun nights I have had in a while!  The down side is that you can't use cell phones in the Casino, so no pictures!  The hotel was amazing, Revel, it really reminded me of a hotel in Vegas, but on the AC boardwalk.  I loved everything about it and would definitely go back in the summer time.

This weekend wasn't horrible food wise, but having it be B's bday it was not amazing either.  I did eat cake and short ribs and cheeses, but I didn't stuff myself and did a lot of walking.  At the end of the day I was down 1lb on Monday, which after a weekend of temptations always makes me happy.  I am hoping to be at 176lbs by Monday.  That will give me 5lbs that I will have to lose by March 29th (final weigh in on dietbet).  I will say once I got the call my dress was in, better decisions are coming easier to me.  I am trying to stop myself from over eating.  Happy Thursday!

Have a great weekend!

I'm sore

So sad that only a few months ago, less than six months I was able to run 20 miles and feel good and this weekend I ran one, ONE and felt sore as hell ha!  Your body works in such weird ways. 

My weekend was great overall, I went to visit my gram in her rehab center (she fell and is getting therapy) and she looked great.  She's 90 years old and on dialysis for the rest of her life but for the most part looks and acts amazing!  I'm so lucky to have so much time with her.  She was such an important role in my life, pretty much raising my sister and I when we were little.  There is never enough time, but being able to spend several hours shooting the sh*t is something that I am so grateful for.  After the visit I went to dinner with my mom, sister and my mom's boyfriend.  It was Mexican and amazeballs!  I had the classic fajitas and passed on the desert they ordered. 

My first weigh in was rejected for dietbet.com because I didn't put my word next to the weigh in, but my second one worked, but guess what, I was down one pound in those two days, dang it!  That means I weighed in 1lbs less officially so I have slightly more to loss in two days less.  Dang it!  I guess it just puts more motivation on me!  Below is one of my weigh in pics.  I can see where my body expanded since training and surprisingly a lot of it is in my ass area!  I never thought I was someone who gained in the buttocks, but looking at pictures I can see it.  So this is my official weigh in picture, there is another picture, but it isn't full body so I'm not posting it.



The weekend weather was really nice so B and I took Clyde on two long walks and then went bowling!  It was really fun and, drum roll, I hit my personal best, a score over 100!!!  I know it's nothing to write home about, but it was a major win for me! 



After bowling we stopped at another Mexican restaurant and I had three glasses of sparkling Sangria, so good, and a lot of guacamole and chips.  It was around 3pm, so I got hungry again around 7pm and I had American cheese with pretzels.  Overall Sunday was a bad food decision day and I saw it on the scale this am, 0.5 gain.  I know it will come off, but I plan to officially weigh in again on Friday, my goal is to have a 2lb loss since my official weigh in this weekend of 179lbs.  To win my money back I will have to end March at 171lbs.  Are any of you guys doing the diet bet as well?
