Weekend recap

Friday, Geof and I went to Alfredo’s for pizza to treat ourselves since we had been good all week. They have some of the best pizza around. We had mushroom as the topping and it was yummy. After dinner, we met up with our friends Merrick and Jill for some bowling. They had two of their other friends come along and we had a nice time. It was “glow bowling” night, so they had the blacklights on and the music pumping. I’m a terrible bowler, but I have so much fun being silly when I go. After bowling, we went to Barnaby’s (a.k.a. our favorite watering hole) for some drinks and met up with more friends. I met some nice people and we had a great night. My only regret was that I got home way later than I wanted to.

Me after I got my one and only strike of the night!

Saturday was the ice show and it went better than I could have even imagined. I got nervous because the practice before the show went a little longer than expected and I didn’t think we would start on time. Everything worked out, the kids did great, we had no technical issues with the music or announcements and I could tell the kids were really proud of themselves. We received many compliments on how well the show was put together from parents and guests. I felt so accomplished and relieved! I have been stressed over this for weeks. After the show, my mom, Geof and I went to Applebee’s and then my mom came over and we watched Sex and the City the movie. It was very nice to relax after such a long day.

Some of our cute!

Sunday, our friend Cory and his girlfriend Laura came over and we all played Rock Band. I have finally figured out how to get somewhat coordinated to play the guitar. At last I can enjoy this game like the rest of the world. Now I can see why Geof spends hours in the man cave playing it. After our Rock Band extravaganza, I made BBQ Bacon Meatloaf out of our Biggest Loser cookbook. It was good, but I think it could have used a little more BBQ sauce.

Sunday night dinner

I got on the scale this morning and I was up 3 pounds from my 7 pound loss last week, which means I am still down 4. That is the optimistic side that I’m trying to view it from anyway. I think I may have overdone it some my first week and am trying to take it slow and steady. My goal this week is to lose 2 pounds, but I will be happy with even 1. I am still going to keep eating healthy, go to the gym and use Friday as my little reward/treat day.

I hope everyone had a great weekend and has a wonderful week!

I am a terrible bower too, but I love the glo bowl! I can't play the guitar on Rock Band to save my life! I'm pretty good on the drums tho! Such a fun game! :D

Lis said...

Looks like a great weekend. The bowling sounds so fun!!! I love to go bowling with the hubby and friends.

I'm so glad the ice show went well!! Your students are too cute!

And don't get down about the gain - you know being a woman one day you can weigh one thing and the next day not change a thing and weigh something different!

I hope you have a fantastic week!!!
