Monday Weigh In {Weekend Round up}

Good Monday morning everyone!! 


I'm in a surprisingly good mood this morning considering it's monday AND I slept in. I forgot to set my alarm last night and I woke up at 6:25.. and I normally leave the house at 6:40 to meet my coworkers at the car pool lot. I managed to leave the house at 6:43. It's amazing what you can do in such short time when you have no choice. 


This weekend ended up being a bit more eventful than originally planned and I managed to stay on track, for the most part... My goal for the weekend was to stay away from as many bad carbs as possible, which is always the toughest on the weekend.


I was off Friday and one of my best college friends finally moved back to the area, so I went and picked her and her 8 month old daughter up at 9:30. We headed to Ikea and decided that we'd try out their 1$ breakfast. Even if it was gross, it was only going to cost us a dollar ;) It turned out to be pretty darn good! For one dollar you get scrambled eggs, home friess and two sausage and for an extra dollar you can add french toast, toast, pancakes or bacon. I stuck with the original plate and only ate a few homefries. Breakfast = success. 


After we ate, we shopped around for a while and picked up a few odds and ends. We decided to head over to Addition-elle (my favourite plus size store) because they were having a clearance sale. My friend and I are both going to the same wedding at the end of september, so we tried on a few clearance dresses. I rarely shop with friends, so it was nice to try on pretty things and show each other. The dresses were super nice! However, I'm hoping that I'll be down more weight by September, so I don't want to drop cash on a new dress just yet. I ended up buying a cute tank-top (which makes me feel skinny!) and some jewellery. 


After shopping and lunch, we headed over to the amusement park and went to the water park for the rest of the day. My friend suggested that we go to a nearby pub for dinner. I wasn't too thrilled on this because I knew the food choices would be crap, but we went anyway. We ended up sharing an appetizer sampler. I ended up consuming 3 friend pickle wedges (YUM!), 3 wings, a piece of rib or 2, a few fries and an onion ring... not too bad. 


I spent the first half of Saturday getting some errands done and I also attempted a run. It was so friggen hot, I had to cut it short. That evening we headed to Ross's sisters' for dinner. Again, I didn't do too bad. I had corn on the cob, chicken, a tiny bit of potato salad, spinach salad and a small piece of cookie pizza. 


Sunday was a relatively lazy day, however, we did manage to get out and play a little bit of tennis. It was super hot out and our tennis balls sucked! We managed to borrow one from some guys that were waiting for the court and they were much better.. so I'll be going to pick up some new ones so we can start playing more often. I didn't realize how good of a workout tennis was!!

I was anxious about my weigh in all weekend because when I checked on friday, I saw a pretty good number!  I managed to stay on track pretty well this weekend so I was actually looking forward to weighing in. Even though I was tight for time this morning, I made sure to hop on the scale...


Previous weight: 256
Current weight: 251.5
- 4.5 lbs!! 


Woo hoo!! I finally saw a good loss! I passed the 25lb loss mark and I'm so close to the 30lb mark! I would LOVE to see the 240's next week.. fingers crossed! :D
