Weekend Roundup!

Well the good news is I did not get arrested by the Weight Watchers police :-) Saturday night, Wizard and I went out for a steak and lobster dinner.   I kept looking around, feeling like I was going to be “busted,”  especially when I was dipping bread into the drawn butter sauce. But it was good! (And I have “extra” points to cover it, I think).

Sunday,  Biker Witch and I went shopping at a mall. I haven’t been to a mall in ages and man, we SHOPPED.  I even bought–wait for it–two swim suits.

Yeah…regretting the bread dipped in butter sauce now, LOL! But I needed the swim suits so I’m going to the gym and sticking to my points this week!

Oh and I saw a copy of BLOOD MAGIC, and noticed that it was in a second printing, that’s cool!

Lastly,  Key is being interview over on Laura Wright’s blog by Lucian, one of the hot sexy vamps from her Mark of the Vampire series. Come on over and say hello!

How was your weekend?

    I loved Key’s interview. So funny.
    Glad you had a nice weekend. Sounds like a nice dinner. You have to let yourself have a treat now and then. I think that’s why so many people fail.
    My weekend was fine – the same old same old. No rain for a change :-D .

    The weekend was good. I had a garage sale to get rid of stuff that we’ve been putting off getting rid of for a while. I did ok. Sunday we spent the day with friends at their house at the pool and I got a bit too much sun.

    I’m ready to either get this house on the market or not because it is interfering with my reading. :(

    Viki, thanks on the interview, it was fun!

    You’re right on treating ourselves when dieting. I hate the word diet anyway :-)

    Glad you didn’t have any rain!

    Amanda, I haven’t done a garage sale in ages, but I remember them being tiring! Had to laugh at the house prep interfering with your reading time! I get cranky when that happens to me!

    Hope you didn’t get too badly sunburned.

    Alyssa, we both enjoyed the dinner! Wizard was worried that I wouldn’t eat, but I put those concerns to rest!

    Happy Birthday to your dad and soul mirror!

    Steak and lobster? *whimper* I want! My diet is… *pbthhhh* at the moment. It went really good for two weeks, I dropped 7 pounds, wasn’t hungry, eating healthy, even managed some time on the gazelle for exercise. And right after I plateaued. And then I gained back three pounds. WITHOUT CHANGING A THING. *sigh* I want a new metabolism.

    Sooooo…where’s Linc? I want to put some money on Key in that match up with Lucien!

    Weekend? Women’s College World Series was on TV. I stayed under the AC and watched, even though my teams all got beat. Finals start tonight. Go Florida!

    Ooo, lobster. Yumm.

    @Silver, I hear you. I have been trying to lose for weeks and I’m basically just bouncing up and down three pounds at this point. But I’m trying to be good and stop drinking Yoo Hoos and eating late at night. And running every day. It’s a nice release to run, but actually getting out there is the hard part.
    Oh, my weekend, nothing much. My brother kept my nephew most of the weekend so there went my entertainment. lol

    Oh Silver I hear you on diets being “plllppllyyttt” right now. I lost like 4.6lbs the first week and what did I do this week? Gained back .2lbs. I know not that much but the scale is going in the wrong direction!

    Silver, I’m so sorry about the plateau! That’s so frustrating and I feel for you!

    Shhh, don’t tell Linc, he’ll think a cage fight between Key and Lucian is brilliant!

    Sorry all your teams lost :-(

    Your brother needs to share your nephew!

    Amanda, it’s not fair that gaining weight is so much easier than losing for most of us.

    My weekend was GREAT! I helped organize my best friend’s baby shower with her sister and it ended up being great! We spent most of Friday getting ready and then Saturday was just beyond amazing. My friend’s husband was there and decided to help play the games with her brother, seeing them eat chocolate from a diaper was hilarious. Also steak sounds amazing right now. Its been storming for the past two days so we havent been able to grill, but I am waiting until this Friday to break my “life changing habits” for my birthday cake. I am beyond excited for my cake, I only get it once a year!
