Day 240 – 244: Wedding Weekend Wrap-Up, New Recipe & Photos!



It was a GREAT weekend! Here’s a few highlights in photos (above - click to make larger!) and below!
  • Megan was a STUNNING bride. She just looked amazing and it was so nice to see one of my best friends, a girl i've been friends with since we were 6, get married in her parent's yard - just beautiful. The weather was perfect, she looked amazing and we just had the best time with our friends, their families and my parents - GREAT weekend!

  • The granite templating on Thursday went great! Can't wait to have granite in TWO DAYS! OMG. We have a plumber all lined up for Friday (the sink has to set for 24 hours), and I replaced the faucet with one that had all the parts. Grrrr.

  • I made a new recipe - Mustard Crusted Salmon. It's EASY so real quick: Mix 1 tbsp fat-free sour cream and 1 tsp dijon mustard. Spread over salmon fillet and broil for 8 minutes. DONE! We served ours with rice, but next time I want to serve it with a baked potato and corn- yum! I have NO IDEA where I found the recipe... boo... but I hope you try it/like it!

  • I got a haircut Thursday - love Van Michael! Love the shorter cut - love it!
  • I bought some new flats. Yes- my feet still prefer flats. Blah. I'm obsessed with them though - black and brown gladiators!! I think i'm going to do peasant tops, skinny jeans and gladiators through spring! I love DSW!

FOOD

Thursday: I had 1,679 calories, 244 carbs and 42 fat grams. Not awful – especially since we had dinner & a snack on the road! And when we got to town I had M&Ms! Haha Addictive little bastards. Here’s what I ate.

Friday: I had 2,361 calories, 179 carbs and 93 fat grams – high!! It was the rehearsal dinner and bridemaid’s luncheon – I went STARVING to both and ate poorly. Here’s what I ate. Chicken Salad + brownies + M&Ms + macaroni & cheese + mashed potatoes??!! WHOA! haha

Saturday: I had 2,526 calories, 75 fat grams and 187 carbs – whoa! But – come on – I was gone ALL day and ate/drank all day – what did I expect??! Haha Here’s what I ate.

Sunday: I had 1,648 calories, 170 carbs and 73 fat grams – eeek! Fast food is KILLER – I had zaxby’s and was BAD! Here’s what I ate.

Monday: I had 1,654 calories, 231 carbs and 30 fat grams. It was a great day but I was SUPER snacky! Here’s what I ate.

EXERCISE

I had every intention of working out Friday and Saturday – I wanted to squeeze it in no matter what. Friday’s 4-mile walk was GREAT and I stuck around for biceps, shoulders and triceps. Saturday I got up in ample time to go walk…. But my allergy attack was back and I felt like crap. Instead of laid around on my mom’s couch feeling awful catching up on Gossip Girl. I’m a loser. Monday was better though! 5.5 miles cardio + abs – woo! I’m on my way to 100 miles!!

Today i'm hoping to do 5.5 miles + legs! So weird that it's Cinco De Mayo - is it just me or does it ALWAYS fall on a rando Tuesday or Monday in crap weather? Blah.

That salmon sounds good, I'm always up for low fat seafood recipes. Is it frozen or fresh before you broil it? Where/what kind of filets do you use?

So many questions!

Best of luck getting to 100 miles this month!

De: It was!! It was frozen before I broiled it. I buy mine at Kroger - treasure of the sea! (comes with 4 fillets- no skin!)

Mica: we loved it - too simple and yum. Thanks - i'm trying - my legs hurt!

Sweetandfit: Me too! It was great!!
