Oh shit, it’s been a week!

D: I didn’t even realize that I haven’t been posting. My bad, guys!

Last week was a lot of fun. We worked really, really hard. I ended up gaining a pound, but I am not worried about it at all. My body is probably back to the lose/gain every other week thing it had been doing. That’s fine with me, really. I feel more fit, I see my body fat percentage going down finally, and I can see myself getting thinner. That’s all that matters.

Last Thursday, Chris played hooky, and we went and did stuff together. Randomly walking around downtown, had a date (ate some amazing Chinese food), walked around a mall that we hadn’t actually been in yet, then went slightly grocery shopping. Not fully, but we needed some things to hold us over until tomorrow. As we were walking to the store, we went past an Old Navy. Chris and I had been talking about getting me some better fitting clothing, so we went in to see what they had. I wasn’t even expecting to be able to find something that will fit me, but we did. I fit their XXL, and possibly their XL stuff. That is super exciting for me. I cannot remember the last time I was able to properly fit in XXL anything with pants! I remember GETTING fat, in 2007, when I went to buy normal fitting things at Walmart and I couldn’t fit a 20 or 22 or 24 anymore. Were my clothes really that stretchy? Was I that deluded? How did I get so bad? I did not try anything on in Old Navy, but we will be doing that next week when we go to buy me some clothes! I am stupid excited about that.

My mom came to visit Friday through Sunday for our Aunt Pat’s 40th wedding anniversary party on Saturday. I absolutely love my cousins, and being able to spend so much time with family was just so relaxing. The downside to get togethers like that is the food. I controlled myself (but didn’t track…sure I went over). Had a little of every appetizer there that wasn’t fried (to be fair, I don’t think any were), ate grilled chicken with my dinner, along with a salad and homemade bread (and one piece of tri tip, so yummy), and then I had some trifle that was there. The trifle was evil. Super evil. SO GOOD. Super evil. I had it 3 times over the last 2 days. Alcohol was consumed on Saturday (3 beers, 2 bourbon lemonades). A cookie and a lemon cupcake were also acquired. Sugar sugar sugar. Woke up with the WORST sugar hangover ever today, and Chris and I just couldn’t make it to the gym. We are for sure working out 4 days this week, though. Upping our cardio by 10 minutes to help the process. Definitely not eating any extra sugar (outside of a couple pieces of bread, and complex carbs of oatmeal and cream of wheat, no extra sugar in those…) for at least 3 days. It was so bad, and I can feel myself slipping. Sugar is a dangerous drug when you have too much of it. So bad, so bad. :|

My cousin has a vegetable garden in his backyard that I am going to go ravage today. Going to get fresh lettuce, spinach, and sugar snap peas before they leave for a while to the beach. Got some garlic scapes from him yesterday, too! Going to make a dip with that. We have left over beer, queso, (had) grilled chicken, and stuff to MAKE more queso (lol). Seriously, this weekend was so awesome.

Have to say, though, that not cussing for a while when around children is just odd for me. ;)

Pictures from this weekend will be on my Facebook, as well as hopefully some video of my cousin Alicia singing.
