It's been a while...

I've been so busy since my vacay I haven't posted in a while! We had a great time in MD, VA and DC-I'll try to post some pics too. I'm still doing the Body Fit Challenge at the gym and I can't believe how much hard working out I've been doing We're talking like nausea, soreness, stiffness all of it. And what do I have to show for the fruits of my labor? I've gained 4lbs. No it's not muscle. I don't have a clue what's going on, but it sucks and I'm pissed. I know I could be eating better, but I'm certainly not bad, and I know I could work out more/harder when I'm on the off days, but the fact that I can hardly move usually hinders that. I've decided to finish out the challenge and I've decided to go back on Weight Watchers. This has been the only way I was successful-I just got lazy. It's only been 3 days and I've already seen an improvement on the scale.
I also made 6 meals on Monday that I put in the freezer so we don't have to think too hard on the nights I'm at the gym. After I finished those I cooked 3 breasts of chicken and cut them up for pasta, salads etc-They're in the fridge now, but will eventually go in the freezer too. Then I made dinner for us for Monday, so all in all I made 8 "meals" in one day. I will probably try to do this every other week from now on-It will be such a time saver if it's good! Once we actually try out the recipes I'll start posting them.
I had today off work and got my hair done, went to the dentist, went to the doctor, cleaned the house, and then I'll leave for the gym in a little over a hour. Only 2 more classes of getting my ass kicked! Plus, hubby doesn't even have to think about dinner since meal #1 is thawed in the fridge with the cooking directions for him. All in all it was a good day!

I love Vacation week!

Ok, so it's Monday and that sucks, but I had a great weekend! Chelsea Handler on Friday night for my best friend's birthday-Damn that girl is funny! See some quotes from her fansite here:
On Saturday we ended up at our friend's neighbor's Cinco de Mayo party instead of dinner at our friends house like we were supposed to but we ended up having a great time. C is QUITE the Beer Pong ringer! Then we went back to our friend's house and played Pictionary-I haven't played that game in probably 20years and I've definitely never played with C, but holy crap we're an AMAZING team. He drew a line and 2 houses and I guessed neighborhood right after that! I think even we were surprised at how good we were. We may have to hustle some more people!
Sunday we took my Mom and 93 y/o Grandma out for brunch as an early Mother's Day present. Any day with Gma is an adventure for sure...she's full of crazy stories! We're going to be gone on the actual day so we wanted to celebrate early-we went to Lake Forest Cafe and I had super yummy crepes w/turkey and herb cheese. If you're ever in the Folsom area I highly recommend this place but it's very tiny and due to their hours I would recommend getting there early or getting reservations-they take them for parties of 5 or more.
And this week will fly by I'm sure because at 6:00a.m. we'll be on a plane to Baltimore, MD for a wedding that's on Saturday in Chesapeake Bay-It's at the Hyatt there and tell me how beautiful this place looks!? C is actually in the wedding-I just get to enjoy! We're heading to DC for one night too-C grew up near there so he'll show me around since I was 8 the last time I went! I can't wait to have 4 days off work. Oh man I love a vacation!
