Winning Weekend!

Lots of successes to post! Friday, Kevin, his meme & mom came over for dinner. I grilled shrimp kebabs with pineapple & red pepper, grilled tomatoes with basil, olive oil & balsamic vinegar, and corn on the cob. Everything came out delicious and we had a great time. Later that night I tried to talk with Kevin about moving forward with things. He thinks we already are, he feels better about everything, even though there still has been no re-proposal. we talked about him moving in with me in august, which isn't even far away. I feel like I'm having a hard time believing him that we're moving forward without that symbolic moment of him asking me to marry him the right way.

Saturday I did well eating wise for the most part. Worked in the AM at my per diem job, then came home to get ready for a night at the casino with my friends Amy & Chris. Loooong drive, since we met up beforehand at Chris' house, it doubled my driving time. Next time I'm meeting them at the casino! We went to Jimmy Buffet's Margaritaville for dinner. I looked at the menu beforehand, and picked out a healthy option. A salad with tomatoes, pecans, mango, grilled chicken & the dressing on the side. I splurged on a delish cocktail in a fancy keepsake glass lol. Then we did a little shopping, We stopped in a store where they had super cute aprons, so I just HAD to buy one, and I got kevin a little stress relieving golf game for his desk at work. We looked in a store that had lots of beautiful Vera Bradley and Pandora & there was so much I wanted to buy, I said "Lets go win big so we can come back & shop!" so we went looking for the wheel of fortune. My favorite game since my roomie won $600 once. We skipped the first wheel and went to find another. I sat down at the only open spot & ended up winning $300!! Very irritated that the free drink girl did not come around at all, at that spot, or the next round of slots we played (didn't lose anything there). I guess that helped my waistline.... went back and bought a new Vera Bradley & the ladybug pandora charm since I seemed to be having good luck. We had a long drive back, I didn't get home until about 12:30am. so tired.

I slept in until almost 10, ate breakfast & lounged around.  Went to the gym for an impressive 750 calorie burn (remembered my HR monitor finally!) ran 3.1 miles (5K) in 39:30, my fastest time so far. I was able to run for 10 minutes at a time with 2 minutes walking in between. Did the elliptical after. Still haven't done my lifting program yet. Definitely on my to-do list. I've eaten well all day, and I'm feeling great. I tracked today, and I'm feeling motivated to stay on track. Especially with vacation 3 weeks away. Now I'm off to finish Jillian's show :)
