Monday Weigh In and Weekend Recap

Hope everyone had a fantastic weekend, I sure did!

I stepped on the scale this morning for my first Monday Weigh In and it read 256. I little more than it did on friday, but I'll take the 1.5lb loss :) I've also added a page where I'm going to track my Lose a Marathon progress. I was surprised to see a difference in my pictures already (the first picture was taken sometime in 2012) and I'm also down about 10inches overall. I'll likely take another picture and my measurements at the halfway point and again at the end of the challenge. I hope it keeps me motivated throughout the summer. 

We had an action packed weekend. Saturday morning we headed to our friends place for the 3rd Annual Washer Tournament. This tournament is always so much fun! This year was no different. There was about 40 people there and 30 of us in the tournament. The first round started around 1:30 and I don't think we went to bed until after 2am, but the tournament itself is over around 6pm ;)

most people have never heard of Washers, so I thought a picture would help :)

For some reason the boyfriend and I were up at about 7:30am, so we cleaned up a bit, said bye to the hosts and headed home. We had plans to go tubing that afternoon so we were hoping to get a nap in before then. 

The nap never did happen and by 11am we were on the road again. We met up with another couple and headed to a nearby river. A couple months ago I was actually trying to find a place where we could go tubing down a river, so I was pretty excited when they asked us to go this weekend. Not to mention that this place is free (the other places I found were run by someone). The weather wasn't the best, but we had a great time. It took about an hour and a half and the river went through the cutest little time so there was lots to look at. I look forward to doing it again! Next time I'll be bringing my camera too. I wasn't sure if it would be too rough for my camera and didn't want to risk it. 

I definitely blew my diet on Saturday. We started drinking at 12:30 and didn't stop until 2am and there were lots of snacks and treats kicking around. I'm not a big drinker anymore. These days I tend to save my drinking for events like this or get togethers with friends. This coming weekend is a long weekend for us Canadians (Canada Day!) and we're staying at my sisters for the weekend. We have a bunch of tentative plans, but my goal is to stay on track and to not over do it with alcohol or food.. I think I'll be the DD :)


  1. I just found your blog and its very inspiring! Thanks for sharing your story.

  2. Congratulations on the loss--that's awesome! Enjoy Canada Day! I sure wish we Americans could get on the Canadian bandwagon and make sure all our summer holidays fall on a Monday. Having our July 4th holiday on a WEDNESDAY is just ridiculous!! ;)


I love comments!
