Days 183 - 186: Wonderful Weekend to Crashing

So WOW let’s backtrack. Thursday was weird! I was just in a funky mood all day and kind of felt sick and just BLAH. I worked….and that’s about it. I didn’t work out, I didn’t cook dinner, it was just a wash of a day. I went to bed early to rest up for the weekend hoping I felt better the next day! I ended up at 1,560 calories, 49 fat grams and 204 carbs. Here’s what I ate.

Friday was much better! I woke up still kind of feeling bad, but I headed to work and had a super productive day and even got in 5.5 miles! (no strength training though) My mom was coming over to spend the weekend with Reuben so I got to see her and go to the grocery store and TJ’s! (knew I wouldn’t want to Sunday so it all worked out). I made black bean chicken tacos for dinner then headed over to Monica’s for her BP weekend! Friday night was wine night with TONS of fabulous snacks that I completely gorged on all night – eek! It was, as usual, totally worth it though for a super fun night with friends. I ended up at 2,596 calories, 300 carbs and 72 fat grams. I know, WOW! Little snacks add up QUICK, especially when it’s chocolate/peanut butter covered pretzel balls. Little pieces of heaven! Here’s what I ate.



Saturday I woke up pretty tired (9 girls in a 2-bedroom apartment and I didn’t get enough sleep? Shocking!). I had a Jimmy Dean d-light and yogurt and bummed around getting ready, showering, etc. It was fun getting ready with all the girls and everyone was super excited for the lingerie shower! I made my own lunch/dinner (worried about getting sick and not being able to go back home!), so I had sweet & sour chicken before we headed out around 12:30 or 1 to a really cool Mexican restaurant in midtown, Zocalo. It was like indoor but out – like eating lunch under a covered patio. We did the lingerie shower there and it was hilarious because Monica was SO embarrassed!! We were like oh come on – everyone here besides us is homosexual and could care less about your new cutie cute thong! Hehe So funny. After the shower we went to check into hotels in midtown and rested a bit before more drinking! Haha Around 7 I took my red curry chicken out of the cooler and found a microwave down in the employee lounge- lovely- but my dinner was GOOD and it was already time to get in the cab and head to Two Urban Licks. The place was amazing –loved the décor, mood, etc. – very swanky! We got a great u-shaped table with plush leather and pillows! And I loved how, because it was in a warehouse, had the garage doors up (i.e. loading dock) and you could completely see the downtown skyline. Very cool!! The place was fun and the staff was SO nice. They took care of Monica’s cake and were so great about everything (and QUICK!) During dinner we gave out Lauren’s fun toys – a big light-up ring for Monica, sashes, shot glass necklaces, penis straws, etc. After dinner we hopped in a cab and headed to Opera! They weren’t open yet so we walked across to flipflops where this super nice dude bought us all shots and we danced around for a bit until heading to Opera.
Opera was PACKED – nothing like it was when we had my bachelorette party there. It was like crazy packed and hard to get around. We tried our best and danced and danced, but decided to go back to flipflops where the people were nicer!! We closed tabs and walked across the street! Then things started getting sloppy… hehe. A few of the single girls hooked up with guys, one who ended up being a co-owner of the bar so…. Long story short.. the bar closed at 2 but we were invited to stay after hours which turned into drunk dancing/singing until 5 a.m. with the staff (yes, some were probably annoyed – especially when we were dancing with the mops as they cleaned). No, we didn’t pay for drinks after hours and yes, there were 9 of us! Everyone was so nice but yes, SLOPPY.
I was total upper though (hello four or five SF redbulls/vodka starting at dinner). I did fall – once. Really I tripped on someone and went down HARD on my left elbow and knee…. And my hip a little. BLAH. It was a blast – but oh my did it get early quick and we had to get up and drive to the burbs for a breakfast with Monica’s mother. Oh my – can we do this?! At the end of our fabulously crazy Saturday I ended up at 2,714 calories, 287 carbs and 36 fat grams. WHOA – that’s a lot! Maybe the drunk dancing burned a few calories? Hehe Here’s what I ate… and drank!










So Sunday. Wow. Seriously – I got up and just got in gear – turned on music on my iPhone and just packed quickly and brushed my teeth furiously before driving Monica, Liz and Laura to gas stations (for fluids), Mon’s apartment (for Laura’s bags) and then up to Mon’s moms. We had a FABULOUS breakfast – wow – she really thought of everything and her breakfast casserole was insane. My stomach was seriously about to murder me so I stayed busy and cleaned! We headed out (with pastries in hand – Mon’s mom is so cute!) and I dropped off the girls and went HOME. My mom/sis were there so we all hung out before they went out to shop. I HATED losing the hour. Blah. But basically spent the day on and off sleeping and watching 8 episodes of Big Love on demand.
I love that show SO MUCH. Austin rolled in from New Orleans at 6 in worse shape than me. He passed out on the couch from 6:30 – 9:30. WOW. I will say I never threw up – there’s always that – BUT my sore throat/sinus infection was back BIG TIME and I felt AWFUL. Around 8 I emailed in sick saying I’d come in after lunch, but they told me not to worry about it and just take the day. So last night I just took medicine and passed out. I ended up at 1,576 calories, 167 carbs and 45 fat grams. Here’s what I ate. WOW – those weekends just take it out of me!!! And I have another BP next weekend – eek! Better KILL the gym this week… it’s not looking good so far. Still in bed feeling like crap. :( Today we have the inspection and a bunch of contractors coming to the house. Should be a productive (house) day!! Austin is handling it all (thank gawd!) so I don’t think I’ll be doing much but heading to the clinic for some antibiotics.

So what did you guys do?! Great weekends?! I’m going to read later this afternoon – I’m going down for another nap now. Boo.

P.S. I have HUGE bruises on my elbow and knee - boo. I also have a big bruise on my butt - I don't even know where it came from? I must have bumped a sharp corner - hard. Sigh.

Whoa, that sounds like an intense weekend! Sorry you ended up with mysterious bruises, but just think of them as reminders of what a fun time you had!

Kel!! I loved reading your recap of the weekend..such a good time :) I know you think you did bad this weekend, but think about the rest of us who ate out every meal - I don't even want to know my calorie intake. AHH.

Oh and don't feel bad...I have bruised toes and a bruised butt cheek. I must have fallen on something too! haha.

Thanks again for eveything this weekend. You are the best!! Oh, and I heart those TJ Choc Pretzel Balls. YUM!

I swear I just left a comment. I wonder why it didn't post.

Anyway, I said that it looks like a fun weekend! I wonder if you and I will ever run into each other out sometime.

DG: oh we DID!! So very fun!! :)

Mica: It WAS! I don't know how the B2B did it - I mean really - she was taking shots at 1 p.m. - quite the little trooper! I did... lots - I'll have to take pics tomorrow so you can all feel sorry for me (or think i'm a dumbass). hehe

Monica: Yay!! So glad to have you on the blog!! Austin had a BLAST at Andy's, too - you two just wore us out! haha I know what you mean - and let me tell you - I wasn't worried about the calorie intake at the time (clearly!) haha Maybe we fell together? OMG they're AMAZING!!

Mary: It WAS! Oh she DID! Even with all the alcohol - so cute! Thanks, Mar - I think so too!!!

Thinspired: Yup - worth the bruises and the calories! hehe
Thanks!!! Right... I couldn't have described it better. It's like I can't not watch! And I think Amanda is SO pretty - LOVED her in Mama Mia!

Balanceisbest: haha I hear you! I was the oldest by two years and these girls are hardcore (we all went to Auburn - we know how to party!). GREAT times but I totally paid for it! I did! I couldn't risk stomach problems at the bars we were going to... this way I didn't get sick at all - yay! I wish out-to-eat food didn't impact me that way but what are you going to do?

Inmytummy: Oh I hate when blogger eats my comments! we did! Oh I think we definitely will - we seem to go to all the same places just at different times! :)

This is hilarious. Exactly what girls nights should be...imagine if we had to do this all the time? Good Lord! I'd die. Looks like you all had a super blast and looked wonderful doing it! As for the bruises, it wouldn't have been such a wonderful recap without the battle scars! Have a fab week!

Looks like you had so much fun! I definitely think you danced off ½ off the calories you took in that night plus you have the metabolism I’m sure of a racehorse!
