Technically this should be #3, but I didn’t post a blog post last Wednesday. I figured it wasn’t needed and just threw up an update on Instagram. I was up a pound last week which wasn’t a surprise after the kick off to my birthday week.
The celebration didn’t really stop after that. Last week was filled with treat yo’ self moments and events to commemorate my turning 30.
There was the free birthday drink from Starbucks, which you DO NOT waste on something cheap. So, I indulged in a Caramel Mocha Frap. There was lunch with family.
And of course there was a delicious birthday dinner with Mr. B. There was a beer stop before dinner at Barley & Rye, where I had some fantastic scallops and mac & cheese. There was a martini stop at Icons where I drank Bruno Mars. He tastes like a white chocolate macadamia cookie in case you were wondering. Then were was more wine at a friend’s house where we played Cards Against Humanity.
Saturday my sister and brother-in-law had their house-warming party. More food and alcohol. I even took the time and made sangria for the party!
Sunday, Mr. B and I headed to the Amana Colonies where we ate a pretty tasty crab rangoon pizza for lunch. And we hit up the chocolate shop, where I got this crazy concoction of nuts, caramel, marshmallow, and chocolate.
I ended my birthday week celebration with a much-needed face mask and bubble bath, it was a nice relaxing way to end the amazing week!
Needless to say all the treat yo’ self moments, the alcohol, and delicious food added up to a 2.4 pound gain on the scale. Not a huge surprise, but definitely not the way I want to continue moving!
So on Monday, I got right back to tracking all the things and moving more. I also signed up for two DietBets! One with Kristi from Becoming Supersonic and another with Chris & Heidi Powell. They start next week and I am more than ready to lose some weight and win some money!
Currently, I’m trying to decide to give the 21 Day Fix another go around or if I want to do another Ripped in 30 challenge. Hmmm…choices! I know that I need some structure to my workout routine because what I’m doing currently isn’t getting me where I want to be.
Here’s to another week!
How was your week?
