We left for a party almost as soon as I got home and then we didn’t go to bed until 1:30 a.m.!  Although we were home from the party by midnight, it was such a nice night, we sat outside for a while!

I took this picture from our car while it was moving!

So I had slim pickings to work with, but was happy I found a zucchini in the fridge.  I shredded that and added it to my egg white breakfast sammie, with delicious cherries on the side.

After I blogged yesterday I did Jillian’s 30 minute last change work out on Exercise TV on Demand.  Holy cow was that hard!  But I kept at it like I was on the show! 😀

I was so excited because in the summer months, we can wear jeans to work on Fridays!  After I stopped sweating and took a shower, I went downstairs and pulled out my jeans.  First pair?  Didn’t fit.  Second pair?  Didn’t fit.  Third pair?  Didn’t fit.  Not lying, by this time I was getting pretty pissed!  Fourth pair?  Didn’t fit.  I looked at all the tags and they were all size 12.  Five years ago I was 139 pounds and a size 8!

the misfits!The last pair were a size 14, which thankfully fit.  The old me (okay last week!) would have said “fuck it” and gone through the drive thru at McDonald’s on the way to work.   But then I thought of the last chance work out I did – it was the season with Tara and they were only half way through their goal and I was only on day 5!

I put the jeans on a hanger so they are my visual reminder of where I want to be – and I will fit into them by labor day!!

I went to the gym at lunch and banged out three trails on the bike machine – first one was 4.4 miles, second one was a 1 mile sprint with a ghost rider that you tried to beat (I was behind him 1 1/2 minutes) and then a 3.3 coastal ride.  Not sure if you can tell in the picture, but I was a sweaty mess!

I then brought “mystery soup”, i.e. soup that I failed to label!  Once I defrosted it and heated it up, I was so happy it was my cauliflower potato curry soup!  I had a piece of 12-grain bread with a shmere of reduced fat cream cheese and some canteloupe and black berries on the side.

why yes, I do have seasonings in cabinet in our work kitchen! I added crushed red pepper for an extra kick!

Lunch comes in at 425 calories, 5 carbs, 13.8 protein, 21 fat and 14 fiber.

Later in the afternoon I had 1/4 cup of almonds while I figured out what exercise classes to take next week – the new schedule is all set for next week!

Since the party was an hour away, we didn’t eat dinner and were at the mercy of what was provided.  What I ate: 2 cheese sticks, 2 chicken drumettes, and an onion ring.  I was so hungry we stopped at Steak N Shake on the way home, and Tony got me two mini chipotle sliders – they were tiny but hit the spot!   Dinner was approximately: 520 calories, 26 carbs, 21 protein, 29 fat and 3.5 fiber.

And I had chardonnay at the party – between the almonds and the wine, my “snacks” came to: 605 calories, 33 carbs, 7.9 protei, 27 fat and 4.4 fiber.

And I had a small bite of this:

So even without working out on Memorial Day, check out how many miles I did on the bike machine!

So it took me almost 3 hours to burn 1300 calories, and a medium albuquerque turkey sandwich and a bag of salt and vinegar chips from Schlotzky’s deli is also 1300 calories!

So our 101 Days of Summer Challenge is up to 47!  Today is the last day to join up – let’s try to hit 50 people!  Just email me at bdl319@gmail.com and tell me what your summer goals are!

For those already signed up – don’t forget to send me an email and let me know how your first week went – do you need a push, did the challenge light a fire under your ass like me??  I’ll be doing a recap tomorrow! 😀

I am meeting my sister and Mom for lunch and a haircut.  We are going to Duck Fat Bar & Grill, and since I’ve never had them, we may split a small order of duck fat fries!  Have you ever had them before?  Hopefully there will be healthier choices! 😀

I’ll be unplugged most of the day – I’ll check in with everyone tomorrow!  Keep up the great work!
