Memorial / Birthday Weekend Recap!

Well, I kinda went M.I.A. on the blog this weekend...sorry about that. I'll back up to Friday and go from there.


It was a good day...I had my Medifast meals on schedule and drank plenty of water. Haley and I got in a good workout to end the week:

"You're in My World Now, Grandma"

Haley said this workout was "Birthday Appropriate"...I'm pretty sure she is just trying to say that I am an old lady now!

The workout was tough as usual (see: ABS OF DEATH), but it was a great end to a great week!

Friday night was my first real "test" since I started the Medifast program. I went out to eat....at a Mexican food restaurant...duh duh dummmmmm! I survived, easily....the hardest part was keeping my hands out of the chip basket. I ordered chicken fajitas with a plate of letttuce and made a salad. It was delicious and I left feeling satisfied - not deprived. :)


Saturday was also a good day. I woke up and went for a 4 mile walk. I did fine with my Medifast all day and even went out to eat AGAIN...and I survived...AGAIN! I split boiled crawfish with my dad and had a side salad instead of the corn and potatoes.

Yum!!! Yum!!!


Happy Birthday to Me!!! This was the hardest day so far! My family cooked burgers and made homemade ice cream....I had 2 turkey burger patties and a salad. A few hours later, I had a banana creme Medifast shake. I was satisfied, but at little envious of everyone's juicy burgers and ice cream. I didn't have a cake, per my request, so I didn't have to worry about that temptation. Also, I got some excerise on Sunday, on my new bike!


Yesterday, was a super-busy day! I woke up feeling energized so I went for a walk...and I walked over 5 miles! Go me! After that, I spent the rest of my day refinishing a piece of furniture, so that kept me busy. I've found that I having been trying to keep myself busy lately...boredom usually leads to false hunger for me and I sure don't need that right now!

Ok, now back to the present. This new way of eating is getting a little easier everyday. Today was fine, didn't really think about food all that much...just ate when I was supposed and drank a lot of water. My Lean & Green meal was a grilled chicken salad with light balsamic vinaigrette dressing. I didn't get any exercise in today - I guess this will be my rest day -  but I'm getting up early in the morning to get a workout in!


  1. Yay! Sounds like you had a fabulous week of dedication. I can also see how proud you are of yourself. :) Great job! Thanks for the inspiration.

  2. I want a beach cruiser bike so bad! Happy Birthday!
