Hey everyone! Hope you had a great weekend. I can’t believe it’s already over. I am so ready to get in bed and relax for the coming week. I know it’s going to be a busy one at work with lots of meetings and deadlines for major projects.
We had a lot of fun at the party last night. I talked about Michelle last week and how I’ve known her since I was very little. I’m very lucky to have lots of close friends from my childhood, my 4 closest girlfriends are girls I’ve known since I was in elementary school. One of them is Laura, if you enjoy celebrity gossip she has a great blog. I’ve known her, since I believe, Kindergarten. Last night the party we went to was for her Fiancé. I’m very excited for her and I’m actually in her wedding party. I know it’s going to be so much fun and I can’t wait until next March for the wedding!
Laura’s wedding is another reason I want to lose weight. In addition to her wedding next year, I also have my cousin’s wedding in September. This past July I was in another one of my childhood friend’s wedding. I had a great time but I know I would have been able to have more fun if I was smaller. When you’re in a group of 9 girls and you’re all wearing the same thing it’s hard to not judge how you look compared to the others. It was a hard day for me, but the wedding was so fun I was able to move past my own insecurities and I had a great time.
At the party last night I had a bite of one of Andrew’s mozzarella sticks. Other then that I stuck to just a couple glasses of water. I’m really happy I’ve cut back on my alcohol drinking. It’s been really easy so far. And since I’m allergic to beer my bar tabs can be pretty large since most mixed drinks cost between 5 and 7 bucks. It’s definitely nice to not wake up with hangovers on the weekend and to be saving money.
Let’s get into today’s eats.
After breakfast it was time to bite the bullet and do some laundry. It’s been a very long time since I’ve done any. Since we don’t have a washer and dryer in our apartment I go to my mom’s house to do my laundry. I’m still a mooch what can I say. We’re looking to rent a house or move to another apartment next year, and on the top of my list are, laundry hookups in the apartment, and pets need to be allowed there. I love our apartment now but lugging laundry up and down 3 flights of stairs is a bit of a pain. Plus I’ve been thinking lately how much I’d love to have a pet and my landlords put in the lease that there were no pets allowed. We live in an old Victorian house built around 1896 and the landlords live right below us, so there’s no way we could get away with having any pets. Although we’re thinking we might ask them if we could get something small like a chinchilla, or something similar. I miss my dog a lot and it would be nice to have some kind of animal here.
While doing my laundry I ate a deep chocolate vitamuffin with pb and a clementine I stole from my parents.
While my second load of laundry was in the dryer Andrew and I went to the gym. I had another great workout and was really excited because I was able to run a lot longer then ever before. Nothing that impressive but since I only started running about a week and a 1/2 ago I’ve already seen a great increase in my endurance. It makes going to the gym so much fun when every time your there you can see and feel a great improvement.
After the gym I went back to my parents and while waiting for my laundry to be done I snacked on some baby carrots, and some dip.
I ate all the carrots and about 1/2 of the dip. It was a delicious crunchy snack.
After my laundry was finally complete we came home and I cleaned out my whole dresser and reorganized everything. I still need to organize my closet but that can wait until next weekend. Next weekend I plan on doing a complete and thorough clean up of the apartment. And the closet is on the top of my list of things to get done.
For dinner Andrew and I tried something new. We decided to make ravioli using wonton wrappers. Mine were stuffed with spinach and fat free ricotta, while Andrew stuffed his with meat. They came out really good for our first time, although a few of them did burst while boiling. I ate all the spinach ones I made and a couple of Andrew’s meat ones. I have to say the ones with meat were absolutely delicious. The spinach ones were great, but Andrew’s tasted like really great meatballs. He did an awesome job.
That’s not the best picture, but it’s the best one I have.
Well enjoy the rest of your Sunday night everyone. See you tomorrow!
