Days 261 – 265: Wedding Weekend, Weight Maintenance and our Dining Room!

Hi Friends! Long time no chat! I hope you all had great Memorial Day weekends! Me and Austin were in our friends’ wedding and therefore were SUPER busy all weekend long! It was a good weekend though and I have lots of great pics to share which I will weave throughout this post even when they don’t make sense in their location! Haha

Thursday was super busy! Had lots of work to do, used my lunch to clean the house, and had some of our best friends from Birmingham in town for the kick off of the wedding weekend! Mary & Jimmy drove in and visited with us, I cooked dinner and had a few glasses of wine. We tried to stay up and visit, but Mary is pregnant/tired – me just tired! So I passed out pretty early. I know – I’m a loser! Haha I had 1,685 calories, 234 carbs and 32 fat grams – no exercise. Here’s what I ate.





Friday I had every intention of going to the gym. Had my bag ready and everything. But the day got by me with the luncheon and errands and everything so I did not get in exercise. I did have a great day visiting with Mary and getting to see Mon for her weekend! That night me and Austin (who was SICK… boys are so hard to deal with when they’re sick!) went to the rehearsal dinner and had a great time!! Such a great group, Mon showed a wonderful slideshow, we all got to give toasts – great time! Afterward we went to the hotel bar for a drink, then headed back home. Good night! I ended up at 2,319 calories, 233 carbs and 66 fat grams – eek! Ate way too much – not good!! Here’s what I ate.












Saturday I had no intention of going to the gym! I was up by 8:30 getting ready for a full day! Needed to be at Monica’s parents’ house by 10 a.m.; knew I wouldn’t be home until 2 a.m. So yes, Reuben was back at Unleashed and I was off for a day to see two of our best friends get married! It ended up being a wonderful day – full of fun, friends, yummy food and good times. Andy and Monica were a happy bride/groom and have such good friends and family. We really enjoyed being a part of it (we were both in the wedding party) and are so happy for them. The night ran long but we had a blast – GREAT band, lots of dancing, lots of drinking! I ended up at 2,411 calories, 188 carbs and 61 fat grams. Not awful but not fabulous! Here’s what I ate.






Sunday I felt like poo. I was beat. I was sore. Wearing heels for 14 hours had caught up with my feet and calves. My allergies/sinuses were on fire and I was just DOWN. My TOM was in full swing (day 2 AKA worst day ever always… well 12 times per year) and I was doubled over in cramps. Not cool peeps. I ended up having one of the most sedentary days ever. I tried to get out. We went and got pupper (another successful visit!), and decided to run a few errands. We even ate out for lunch and got TCBY! But then we CRASHED. Napped for a couple of hours and then I never really got up. haha VERY lazy day – ate crap too. Watched crap TV too (movies including Another Cinderella Story and Penelope. Oh My). Only did one productive thing: worked for hours on a dining room inspiration board! I ended up at 2,045 calories, 236 carbs and 72 fat grams. VERY high fat grams!! Here’s what I ate.





Monday I was like OMG really – how many high days without exercise can I have and not gain weight? For the record – I’ve been holding steady at 115 the last few weigh-ins. I woke up not hungry – and ended up eating late all day (breakfast at 11, lunch at 4, dinner at 9 – weird!). I ate relatively healthy all day, and even got out of the house (to house shop!). I got lots of stuff for our dining room (so much that it didn’t fit in the car and my amazing sister met me to help out!). I got lots done at the house but have TONS more to do. Blah. I finally shut down work at 9:30 and we ate dinner and watched Law & Orders. Ah yes- a ritual. I ended up at 1,628 calories, 206 carbs and 38 fat grams. That’s more like it! Here’s what I ate. Yes, I ate the same thing for breakfast and dinner. Do you ever do that? Sometimes I just crave meals back to back – so weird!



This week will be weird. And short. But I hope to be able to blog more! I know – I always say that – but I mean it. And I can’t wait to catch up with your blogs. I hope all is well!!

i love the train tracks picture. i'm not sure how long you can go without exercise and not gain weight. i guess it depends on how much you are eating!

sounds like such a fun weekend :) first the lake, then a wedding...what a good two weeks!!!

Thinspired said...

Fun, fun! I love wedding photos. You look great iny our dress.
I honestly think you did a great job of staying sane with all the festivities of the week...a couple of high days won't do as much harm as you think. And remember, this is why you have been trying to stay under your goal weight...because sometimes you'll creep up to it and that's just fine :)

I just realized the comment I posted on this didn't go through! :(

Mica: Thanks - it WAS awesome!!

DG: I did too - they had pockets- double score! I am - it seems to be the # i'm supposed to be at! I put on 5 pounds this past month - but KNEW it was happening. Argh! YOU'RE an inspiration to ME - i'll get an email out to you this week - hopefully it will be good advice! :)

Eatfabininyc: Thanks!! I did - good times. So glad you love the board!! Once the room is painted i'll share pics!!

Pissy: thanks - it was a pretty day too!! We did have a blast!!

Eurydice: yes! Can't wait to see the pro shots from out there! Right - very, very true!

Nerd Girl: It HAS been a good two weekends! Back to back slammed weekends usually makes me freak out (feel behind/tired/etc.) but it was nice because they were both relaxing in their own way!

Thinspired: Thanks! It didn't fit AT ALL and I personally think the altertions lady did me a diservice by only taking the TOP down two sizes but whatever - it wasn't my day!! Thanks for that - you're right! I think i'm just getting to the point where i'm worried about undoing my work! i'm just SO conscious of everything now that sometimes it annoys me!

Fit2befriends: I will! It's added to my netflix list! It WAS pretty -she did a great job with her wedding!! Aw - I do - I LOVE weekends!
