Weekend recap

I lost 1.5 pounds this weekend! Yay! I am finally seeing some pound loss! I am so happy!

This made my weekend great. I went to see the movie The purge and it was a good one. Scary, creepy, and funny, also short and sweet. I was a busy bee this weekend. I started my Saturday off at the salon, and took Gizzy(my dog) to Day camp (Daycare for dogs). I went to visit my mom and she had my niece and nephew over for the day and showed off my new car (Did I mention I bought a new car?)20130610-104611.jpg

We chatted and I ate some of her wonderful chicken and then got on the road to study. After a few hours hunger overtook my concentration and I went to my favorite healthy pita place called Island Bar and Grill @Fit2aT showed me. I had a jumbo shrimp pita and sweet potato fries! YUM! If you come to Houston, I highly recommend it!  I was randomly invited to a Crawfish boil (too much sodium for my liking) so I picked up my best gal friend and we went to this daiquiri shop, then proceeded to the boil. That was so much fun!20130610-104813.jpg

I also realized I am not much of a drinker anymore, and that I really do not like the thirsty feeling I get the next day. However, it was fun I laughed super hard and learned what “Flip Cup” is about.

I also discovered this social media site Vine. So much fun can be had with it. Check out a few of my posts on there (shoedooo). Really funny stuff.

Sunday I ran all over town, I went to drop Gizmo off at the Groomers, I went to drop off some papers for my car at the dealership, but they were closed (MEH) and took a good nap. I also went shopping and made my famous Stuffed Shells. Yummy. No working out was done this weekend 😦 But today, ladies and gentlemen, It will be done.

Memorial Day Weekend Recap

What a great weekend!

It was just what I needed to get away from my normal day to day schedule. Between the heavy demands at work, and my rigid study schedule I needed some downtime. Holidays do just that!

Saturday: The day did NOT start off so well, I went to my beautician and I went for my usual perm and style, but  I wanted to bring back my old hair cut. A Keri Hilson Bang look. She originally gave me that hair cut and it was amazing!

See?! So beautiful!  Looks like my beautician wanted to “experiment on my hair this time and try a new cutting technique. WHY ME LORD? So I ended up with this Dora the Explorer lopsided Beatles edition of  the cut:

5-28-2013 10-54-47 AMI proceeded to freak out…. A LOT!  She tried to blame it on the sides of my hair (WHICH WERE CUT SUPER UNEVEN! BTW) for being too short to recreate the look and that I FORCED her to cut my hair like that. She told me before she began to hack my hair, that I had enough hair. My bangs touched my chin for Christs sake. This is the second time she has hacked my bangs and even though this haircut isn’t that bad (so i have been told) I DON’T F***ing like it! So we will not be going back to her.

The day proceeded to get better when I went to a pool party. 3 cups of wine had me feeling a little better about it!

Sunday: I woke up early and grabbed some things to go to the beach with my dog, sister and friends. We had crawfish and the day could NOT have been more perfect! It was my dog’s 1st time at the beach and he ran all over, got in the water, played fetch to his hearts content. He was so pooped by the end of the day he just fell asleep literally as soon as the car started up. Perfect DAY!

Monday:  I woke up early and spent some QT with Gizzy. Then, I headed off to the pool for some poolside relaxing. I really have a tan now. I made some sangria, bonded with some of my neighbors and went to a GMAT Math bootcamp. The day was superb. You really cannot get more of a perfect weekend than that.

I cannot wait until the next vacation/holiday. It was well needed and well deserved. How was everyone elses holiday? Hopefully fantastic!  This week will be all about working out and studying, my regularly scheduled programming.

Weekend Recap

This weekend in Houston could not have been more perfect.

 

We are actually having a spring, and it is wonderful! I set my Sundresses and hats out, hung out outdoors with my dog, went to the park, and enjoyed great company. I mean there were no complaints.  Despite me adjusting to this new work schedule that requires me to work the weekends, I went to a crawfish boil, ate well and worked out. The sodium in the crawfish, however, made me bloated. I never noticed how foods  inflate you and make you feel puffy. Cleaning up my diet has given me such insight. I see now, why I should stay away. I no longer see food as food, I see the fat, sodium and sugars it possesses  This change was needed especially with the goals I have in mind. I ran with my dog in the park for about two hours, Did a mini circuit that required me to do 3 rounds of 25 crunches 25 mountain climbers and a 1 minute plank (which has surprisingly gotten easier!) I might add 10 burpees in the mix next time just to get my heart rate up. I also did the little cross fit butt blaster routine and ended my day with a light jog back to my apartment.

 

I didn’t take any pictures but I did read a few books this weekend and shop I bought this romper from Asos

 

 

and some shorts and a tee from Forever 21. I guess you can say I was extremely productive? Maybe!
