Weekend Wrap Up

April 5, 2009 at 9:41 pm 15 comments

What a fun weekend I had!  If every weekend had weather this nice, and as many good times I would be a very happy and lucky lady.  I got to spend a lot of time with my grandparents which is why I didn’t blog yesterday also got to spend a few more hours with them this morning before they left to go back to the Poconos.  I hope you all had a fabulous weekend as well!

After such a fun weekend I’m exhausted so I’m going to try to make this a quick post.

Yesterday I was running late because we had a small problem with the faucet in the bathroom not turning off that I was trying to take care of.  I grabbed a clif bar as I was running out of the house for my Doctors appointment.

Delicious as usual.

After the doctor’s and visiting the assisted living with my grandparents I got a smoothie.

I got one with Mango, pineapple, non-fat yogurt, and protein powder.  Luckily there was no allergic reaction to it yesterday and it was delicious.

For dinner we ate at my parents we ordered chinese food and I decided to get vegeterian chow mein.  It was disgusting.

I wound up eating some broccoli with garlic sauce mostly, but didn’t eat much of that either.  Disappointing.

Later after leaving my parents house we came home to the apartment and met our friend Mike here to hang out.  We spent the night looking up houses in Florida, watching YouTube videos, and talking.  Have I mentioned I want to move somewhere warmer?  I know the weather is getting nice but I just realize how much the winters affect my mood and I need to get to somewhere warm.

My wine was in a very special Secret Service glass from my Aunt Suzy for Christmas last year.  It was a raspberry wine and it was so good.  I definitely drank more then this amount, a lot more.  After the week I had, I decided to relax a little and enjoy the wine though. 

Mike was hungry so I offered some Popchips to him as long as he would allow me to put his pictures trying them on the blog.

Here’s Mike admiring the bag:

Now here’s Mike tasting it:

But did he like it?

Thumbs up!  He tried the orginal and I had a few as well, we wound up dipping them in salsa which was really good.

See Andrew in the background carrying a bowl?  He so lovingly shared his leftovers from Friday night’s dinner with me.  I gladly ate up some of his Rigatoni Pomadora, I was starving since dinner was a such a mess earlier on.  I didn’t take a picture of the rigatoni I completely forgot (too much wine).  I really didn’t have that much, but for the 13 dollar dinner to get 3 meals out of it was really good.

This morning I got up and got dressed to make it back to my parents to say goodbye to my grandparents they wound up sticking around for a few hours so I actually got to spend a good amount of time with them.  I had a cinnamon raisin bagel toasted with a little butter.


Sorry for the crappy cellphone picture.

After my grandparents left Andrew and I went to the gym, it was such a nice day we decided to just do some weights there and take advantage of the nice weather and do our cardio outside.  While doing the weights I burned 225 calories in the half hour we were there.  Then we headed back towards the apartment, my dad had told us they built a new trail in our town that went right along the water.  We decided to give that a try.  I wish I had my camera with me because it was a beautiful walk.  We walked and jogged for an hour, and wound up burning 434 calories, so 659 total with our 2 workouts.

After our walk we  hung out in the marina and walked around a little more then decided to go out for lunch at a little restaurant in the marina.  I got a potato pepper onion and egg sandwich on whole wheat toast.  I wound up deconstructing the sandwich and eating it just like normal scrambled eggs and eating the toast on the side.


On the side you can also see the pickle Andrew so kindly gave to me from his burger.  1 more week until I can eat meat again and until today I haven’t really craved much red meat, chicken yes, red meat not usually.  His burger just looked so damn good I wanted it so badly!  I’ll definitely be having a burger sometime soon after next Sunday when Lent is over!

For dinner we decided to try spaghetti squash for the first time, with meatless meatballs on the side.  I’m so glad we tried the spaghetti squash it was delicious and we have so much left over.

I’ll definitely make this again!

Well before I head off to dreamland don’t forget tomorrow Meghann is having her 2nd Blogger bake sale!  I’ll be donating a loaf of this PB Banana bread with chocolate chips, I have modified the original recipe a little and am so excited to be able to donate this for her bake sale!  If you don’t know, Meghann is training to run the Rock n Roll San Diego Marathon in an effort to raise $3900 for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. What an inspiration this girl is!   Tomorrow at 11am the bake sale begins, for all the rules and logistics visit her site here.

Good night everyone and have a great Monday!
