Christmas in March, nostalgia and grocery refuel
In case you missed it, I checked in Saturday with a weigh in. I lost five pounds (three of my antihistamine gain from last week plus two) and the Mr lost four. We were very encouraged by this so onward.
We had company over the weekend and I feel like we did really well. We knew we were getting a few different kinds of pizza from a place they hadn't been before so I told myself I'd have three pieces (two of the pizzas were small) and only if I wanted more would I go back for any. I had my three pieces and even though I wanted another piece, I could tell our guests wanted more so I held out and I ended up just downing myself with water so I never got more. I usually make a big dessert and sometimes they eat it, sometimes they pick at it, sometimes I can tell they're eating to be nice when they later mention they're trying to watch it. So I just grabbed a half a bag of Hershey kisses I wanted to get rid of, put them in a bowl and pre-planned to have a serving (nine) and that's what I had. I sent the rest home with them (a serving for them to split). I think in the future I may make healthier desserts so they can see those can actually taste good. We chilled out listening to Hawaiian music and catching up. We exchanged Christmas gifts finally and they seemed to love theirs and we loved ours (I asked for a French manicure "marker" and clear coat to seal it in and the Mr got the new Pink Floyd album) We watched a bunch of old school commercials on YouTube and got all nostalgic.

Yesterday was big time grocery refuel day. We basically spent all day doing it, adding Whole Foods and another grocery store in the city to our route...and maybe an open house. I saw this place on Realtor.com and it looked like the dream house but $50K over our budget but I still wanted to see it. When we walked in, the realtor informed us that there were multiple offers and they'd consider them all this morning. When I walked into the kitchen, I realized I was duped by someone who knew how to take pictures and spruced them up. The kitchen looked like crap with cracking cabinets and crown molding, basically no storage and the spacious looking basement was the result of someone squatting low to give the illusion of tall ceilings. It wouldn't even pass the tricep extension test! We didn't even bother looking upstairs and left. Good luck to the suckers who are putting in their bids. I think they're going to regret that decision.
Last night we did an upper body/ab combo from Fitness Blender then the Mr cut all my veggies for the week and I made dinner...spicy orange BBQ pork chop and brussels. We caught up on the DVR and laundry and are now ready to move on to another successful week!
What did you guys get into this weekend? What one thing are you going to do this week to help reach your goals?
