Happy Friday! I just wanted to check in and say hi. :-)
How has your week been? Mine has been super busy at work, but thankfully there is a light at the end of the tunnel – only one more week and Pat and I leave for Aruba!
Not to toot my own horn, but I took this picture the last time we were there .. isn’t it so beautiful that it almost looks fake? Just say yes and make me happy. :-)
Let’s see, what else do I want to tell you guys about. I have seen post after post on Instagram about Combat Crunch bars and have been intrigued to try them.
I picked some up after work today and can’t wait to try them. If they are even 1/2 as tasty as Quest bars (which I LOVE and have every single day), I know I will love them.
I haven’t talked about fitness all that much lately, mostly because there hasn’t been much taking place to talk about. When my gym was right down the street, I went pretty much every morning before work. Now that my new gym is 10 – 15 mins. away, I just find it too hard to get there before work, but yet often feel too tired to go after work. I still do make it there, but lately only 1 or 2 days / week. I have, however, been doing really well as far as watching what I eat. Over the last 3 months, I have been pretty strict about what I eat and actually lost 15 lbs. as a result. Over the last 3 months, I can honestly say I only had 1 real “cheat meal” (more like cheat 1/2 day). :-) I am quite proud of myself considering I was in many situations when I was around not so healthy food (concerts, parties, weekend away, even in an ice cream parlor with my sister and Pat!) but stayed disciplined. As time went on over the last 3 months, I really didn’t even crave junk food, as I said, other than last weekend.
I am really happy with my weight loss, except for one thing – I think 90% of the weight that I lost was in my boobs. :-( haha (and by haha, I really mean waaaaaaa) How is that fair??!! As I lost weight, I started to notice more and more extra room in my bras, but I think I was in denial. A few days ago I finally broke down and bought myself some new bras – 3 actually (which came to $220! – WHY are bras SO expensive??).
This weekend is going to be pretty busy for us. Tomorrow AM, Mr. Bosco has an appt. at the groomer and I have an appt. to get my nails done. Pat and I also want to try to get some more things done on the house to get it ready to put on the market, especially since we will be on vacation for the next 2 weekends.
On Sunday, Pat and I are going stand up paddle boarding with my friend, sister, and sister’s friend.
I am looking forward to it, but REALLY don’t want to fall into the water. haha If I do like it, maybe Pat and I will do it in Aruba as well.
Well, Pat should be home any minute now with our dinner, so I will talk to you all later.
Have a great weekend!! :-)
