Ready for Vacation!

Monday, May 24, 2010

So.. This weekend was pretty nice. Me and my boyfriend went to McKenzies steak house for dinner on Friday, and it was AWESOME. The most expensive date we've ever been on, I do believe. I ate quite a bit, but had been wise and budgetted for the dinner in my daily intake. That and I worked my butt of on Friday to sweat as many calories as possible. We got into a slight tift during the date, and it ended much more quiet than it began, but that soon passed. We spent the rest of the night watching movies and cuddling and I was reminded once again why it is always worth the small troubles we go through. :)

Saturday was a good friend of mine's graduation party in KC. I got up and hit the gym (although no part of me actually wanted to), and then jumped on the road. It was a really good time, authentic Mexican food and cake and fruit dips and. . . needless to say, I went a little crazy on the intake on Saturday. That and the drinks I had with my cousins once I got home put me up to 2100 calories! Ahh! Luckily, once again, I worked out like crazy on Saturday and burned over 800 calories. So I didn't feel as bad, because overall for the day I still ended with a slight defecit.

The strange thing is that it always seems that even when I use this logic, I feel bad about it. And, it seems like, even though the math is there, it is impossible to lose any freakin weight on weeks when I let myself have these freedoms. :( Oh well, at least I can see my flaws.

Sunday I went shopping pretty much all day with my cousins. It was sweet! I had budgetted 300 dollars to spend (I seriously need A LOT of clothes). We went consignment shopping downtown, and then hit up the mall. I bought some really really awesome stuff at Maude V (Vintage store). I got a jump suit even! Adorable! I also bought a pair of size 3/4 jeans. This is the smallest size I have worn in my adult life. I always thought it was so weird that my cousin Sam could fit into a size 0, but now I am thinking I will probably be able to get into a size 2 eventually. This isnt my goal, though. I am pretty much at my goal as far as pant size. Probably because I know my thighs won't get much smaller (and I don't want them to!). I have approx 7 more pounds to lose to meet my goal, and I am in no hurry. Yesterday was the first time ever that I have enjoyed shopping for clothes. I was buying size S/M shirts, and cute little skirts, and I just felt amazing!

So, after this weekend's eating craze, I have decided that I am not going to set a goal to lose any weight over the next few weeks. I have Vegas this week, and then Bonnaroo the second week of June. My goal is going to instead be to maintain where I am at, and get in at least 5 workouts this week (that means 2/4 days in Vegas). I'll adjust from there.

Happy Monday, while I know not everyone is looking forward to the week like I am. :P

    emoticon Congrats on the size 4 jeans! Shopping can be so exciting! Sounds like you had a fab weekend. Mex food, margaritas, shopping, steak... that's my idea of heaven!

    Keep up the great work! Only 7lbs to go is quite an accomplishment! I can't wait to have the same success

    Fabuloso! Love your weekend and love you enjoying your smaller size and NEARLY at goal! W00t!

    I'm 5'2" and *should* be a size 2 but I'm *happy* in a size 4.

    Hope that makes sense. For those of us who were smaller before growing bigger for YEARS, we can still remember what was "normal." ;p

    Yes, you have a very fun filled weekend! Yes, shopping for new clothes is always a plus after you have shedding weight and inches. For me it was almost depressing because I built up a nice wardrobe over the years. I enjoy dressing up, and those type of clothes need to be pretty fitted.

    I like that you have adjusted your goals and you know what you have to do. Have fun in Vegas and at Bonnaroo. I could feel the excitement as I read your blog. Happy Monday to you and have a great week!

    Sounds like you had a great time! It's always awesome to go shopping after you've lost some weight...there's nothing like going back for that smaller size. I also seem to spend a lot more than I would have..haha. Good for you for budgeting! I am not so good at that...payday comes, time to shop!
