Good weekend, everyone?

Well, I had a great weekend even though I wasn't feeling great on Sunday.

FRIDAY
Friday night, Hubs and I went to Olive Garden for dinner. I know-- DANGER! So, he sat there looking up the nutrition information online for like a half hour. Our poor server kept asking if we were OK. We know from experience that waiters don't generally know much about the nutrition of what they serve, so we just smiled and kept downing the water! I ended up getting Pasta e Fajole soup and Hubs got the mixed grill. Neither one of us could finish our food, which I think is a sign that we were definitely pushing the limits on the carbs. I don't usually get that heavy-full feeling on the BFC.

SATURDAY
Then Saturday, Hubs had a conference to go to, so I woke up early with him and I was a cleaning machine for a few hours. Then I rehearsed for the Dr. Who Fan Orchestra thing I'm a part of (more on that later). Aafter practice I had breakfast: two pieces of French toast made with Nature's Own and a scrambled egg. Oh, and I added a little sugar-free syrup. (Probably the only artifically sweetened thing we eat.) Then I met up with a friend for pedicures. I got red nails with this awesome Asian-looking flower design. The lady was really talented! How do they do those little designs?

I got my lunch at El Pollo Loco (I just got plain chicken, since we were planning on going to the movies). After that, we met up at the in-laws to hang out for a while. My sis-in-law brought her kids over, so we got to play with them. We then went to see Soul Surfer which, it turned out, they were showing for FREE! We had free drink refills (we just got water) and free popcorn which we upsized for $1. The whole date was $1!!

Plus, the move was AMAZING! I cannot say enough about it. I cried like 7 times through the whole film. It was just so sweet and the girl who played the lead did such a great job acting like a real teenager. It's one of my pet peeves when actors play teenagers as a lot older than they are. She did a great job!

After that we grabbed Taco Bell for dinner. (I know, I know! But we stayed under our S/C limits for the meal and the day, so we didn't feel too guilty.) We had a nice, relaxing evening at home.

SUNDAY
Sunday, I was sick, but we still had a nice day. Very emotional (as I'm sure it was for many of us!), but good. We had breakfast (ham and cheese omelette and some oatmeal with cinnamon, nutmeg and truvia) and watched the 9-11 ceremony on NBC. I cried so much! Then we watched Dr. Who in an effort to cheer me up and I cried again! Well, it's no wonder that I'm emotional-- I'm PMSing!

But the best part of the whole weekend was that I finally - FINALLY! - dropped some weight!! Woo hoo! I am now officially down 18.4lbs! And Hubs is down 36.8!!!! Look at us go!

I LOVED Soul Surfer! It was an amazing movie and I feel blessed to have watched it.
We eat at the Olive Garden often. I have a program on my phone called Tap and Track and it has over 700 restaurants on it. It is easy to keep track of what I am eating.
Great job on the weight loss!!!

Well it sounds like you both made very good choices on your eating for the week. You have someone to do it with you and that's great. Great job on the loss.
Have a great day :-)

I know this is late, but i haven't been getting your posts. ..

Great job on not finishing the meal at Olive Garden! It's hard sometimes when you know something is healthy or when you are out eating to stop when you should. yay!

Great job so far!!
