Small victories, weekend eats and shopping buys
It was a good but busy weekend. We kicked it off Friday night with our annual viewing of Airplane! I love that Peter Graves was completely unaware of half the jokes he told because he was a serious actor at the time. His wife fell on the floor laughing at the premiere along with all of the other attendees before he knew what comedy bubblin' crude he helped strike.

Striker: "Surely you can't be serious?
Rumack: I am serious. And don't call me Shirley."
Co-Pilot Roger Murdock(to Capt. Oveur): "We have clearance, Clarence.
Capt. Oveur: Roger, Roger. What's our vector, Victor?"
"I just want to tell you both good luck...we're all counting on you."
I could quote it forever but I'll spare you.
Saturday was full of yummy eats. I remembered to take pics of breakfast! Breakfast was a 2 white, 1 whole egg omelet with 1/2 slice lacy swiss cheese, 1 chicken apple sausage and 6 oz of home fries. The Mr says he doesn't know why I go all out for breakfast when he could just eat oatmeal. Screw that, I eat oatmeal during the week, I don't want that crap on the weekend! Lunch was a spicy chicken sandwich with that Sargento Ultra Thin Pepper Jack cheese (skip it...total rip), an ear of corn with 1/2 tbsp light butter and Garden of Eatin's no salt added blue tortilla chips with World Market's queso.
Our sweet for the day were two chocolate long johns. I planned our whole day around these because we were craving them so badly that a serious binge was going to come on if we didn't get them. (We usually get three and if that horrifies you...too bad...HA!...in our fatter days we ate six a piece so yeah, 2-3 is a major improvement). They were worth every calorie. Dinner was two individual TJ's Bambino Pizza Formaggio's and TJ's cheddar chipotle bites so I didn't really have to cook. We had to have a more substantial side because the past 2 times we've had it, we were hungry 2 hours later when we had it with a veggie or salad. Total calories: 2539. I was over by about 40 calories but I knocked down Sunday by about 200 calories than we've been doing the past 2 Sundays.
Saturday Victory: On our way to go shopping, we drove past a Krispy Kreme with the hot light on. This is like having an addict's dealer standing on the corner and any other time we would've gone straight through that drive thru and gotten one hot glazed donut each. I wanted to cry as we passed by it. Yes, I have a problem...sue me. But our calories were planned and there was no wiggle room for it. Sigh.
Hey at least our cheat meals even before the no restaurant meals lockdown for April don't look like Dwayne Johnson's...

Now that I feel better about myself, let's move on to Sunday's eats. Breakfast was Crunchy Biscoff French Toast with half a serving of coconut syrup and maple syrup respectively, two slices of center cut bacon and a a bowl of cantaloupe and pineapple. Drink was green tea. Lunch was a quick one for me, we had lasagna leftover in the freezer from last weekend so I heated that up and we finished off our last two Hawaiian rolls with 1/2 tbsp light butter.
That bowl of apple slices is our Sunday Victory. We were seriously twitching for some ice cream. He was thinking of asking about going to a gourmet ice cream place close to us and I was thinking of suggesting the fro-yo place. When we were at a grocery store I said everything looked good and we both confessed what we were thinking and agreed on the fro-yo place. We went inside and there were a lot of people there. As I scanned the flavors, the only thing that sounded good to me was the chocolate and for fro-yo to be worth it for me I need to pair it with something like mint. The Mr saw two flavors he liked and I told him to go ahead. He said he wasn't getting something if I wasn't and I said I wasn't impressed. So we left. We still needed to go to another grocery store so I said we could get something there and I was thinking maybe one of those wee lil' Ben and Jerry's with 1/2 cup of ice cream to scratch that itch. As we got our produce, I grabbed two extra pink lady apples and when we met up I said "apples will be our snack this afternoon." The Mr gave me a look like "I hate you but you're right." He smiled and said that was fine. When I cut it up and we finished he said "you know what, I didn't feel like I missed out on anything" and I replied "just the guilt" and we high fived. So it may have only been like 40 calories less than the fro-yo we were going to get but I'd rather get the fruit in right now. Go us. Dinner was BBQ chicken naan pizza using two slices of the Sargento Ultra Thin Pepper Jack (did I mention skip it?) and brussels. Calories for the day: 1900 We also did a kick ass workout of Turbo Fire 45 EZ and I burned 1235 calories. A great way to start off the exercise week!
We did a little shopping for the upcoming summer travel season. I tried on one of the swimsuits in my suitcase and it was too big for me so I wanted to see if we could find a tankini top so I could switch out with my other one or pair with some bike shorts I got for water sports. (These thighs aren't seeing the public if I have any say in it and unless there's a toe tag on me, I've gotta say!) I'm not totally in love with it but it's the best I saw of fat lady options so I got it. The Mr really seemed to like it. I also got this earring and necklace set to dress up a plain Old Navy maxi dress.
I'm not a huge nail polish person but when I do, I like subtle. I don't like greens, blues, black, browns, etc. I like feminine colors. I got the colors "Heartthrob" (left) and "Dream date" (right). Heartthrob is really neutral and Dream Date is a sheerish pink color with shimmer. So if you put it on your nails, it would look like nothing was on it until you turned it a certain way and it would pick up the light.
That's about it for us.
What did you guys do this weekend?
