Weekend Wrap Up

I’m so sad the weekend is over!  It was wonderful!  Chicago with my girls, my husband's company party all followed by a kids free night where I stayed in bed till 9!  I slept like the dead and it was wonderful.  

 

Chicago was a blast.  I ate more than I normally would (i.e. deep dish pizza, doughnuts…) Now, that I think of it, I don’t think I overate at all.  Especially when you consider how active we were.  Between both days I probably put in 10 miles, so a piece of deep dish (that was veggy) and one and a half doughnuts was really nothing.  Maybe I over did it with cocktails, but even there I only had 2 and 1 glass of wine.  Not bad at all.  Whenever I travel I try not to get to discouraged by my calorie count, I feel some of the best parts of travel is trying out different foods and indulging a bit, so lay off the guilt.  

 This was soooo good.  I really want another piece!

Our Winner!

 

This weekend also concluded our weight loss bet, Jessi was the winner at a total of 18 pounds!!!! Go Jessi!!  Let me tell you, you can tell, right away when I saw her I thought she looked awesome, hard work pays off!  I am so lucky in all my friends, the girls that went to chicago with me brought gym clothes so we could keep the runstreak strong.  Aren’t they awesome, it also helps that we all are trying to maintain a healthstyle.  It was nice to have so much time with them and just talk about everything and anything.  This should be no surprise but I love talking about all things health and I was able to pick both my girls brains on their eating habits, how they lost weight, and it really just reinvigorated my whole health journey.  Winning!

 

Let's tackle the week!
