Hello all! Hope you had a wonderful weekend! My weekend was really good and my birthday was fabulous.

Friday night I went to dinner and a movie with my friends Erin and Kim. We had dinner at Red Robin. I had a Chicken Carbona Burger. It was a grilled chicken breast with fresh mozzarella slices, lettuce, tomatoes and some kind of sauce that I don't really remember much about. I just ate the chicken breast, cheese and veggies. I didn't have the bun and scraped off as much of the sauce as I could, they were just empty calories I didn't need. I also only had 2 fries just to satisfy my craving but not go overboard. Water was my drink of choice. After dinner we went to the movie "Stepfather" which was amazing! Both of my friends got candy and a drink but I opted out even after they tried to persuade me into doing so. Didn't make it to the gym like I planned. Blah.

Saturday was my 21st birthday. I got up at 7:30am so I could hit the gym before the day began. Yup, you read that right, 7:30am! If you would have told me a month or two ago that I would be getting up at 7:30am on my birthday (which also happened to be a Saturday) to go to the gym I would have told you that you were absolutely nuts. I was very impressed with myself and it started the day off very well. I got to the gym and it was PACKED! Like honestly I think the whole state of Wisconsin was there (haha not really). I decided to turn around and go home and instead do one of my workout DVD's. I did 3 segments of the abs, buns and thighs 10 minute solutions DVD for a total of 30 minutes. WOW did that workout kick my butt! After that I took the dog on a mile walk and then hopped in the shower.

I needed to go the Kohl's to get an outfit for the night and my brothers and mom decided we needed to stop and get some lunch so we headed to this little restaurant called "Green Forest". I had something called the "Low Cal Pal". It was a grilled chicken breast, watermelon, tomatoes, cucumbers, a hard boiled egg and cottage cheese on the side. I ate about 1/3 of the chicken breast because even though it was grilled there was some type of breading on it so I'm not sure how "healthy" it actually was. I ate everything else except I only had about 1/2 of the cottage cheese. It was a very satisfying lunch.

After we went shopping we headed home to get ready for the night. We went to the Nitty Gritty at about 5:30. A bunch of my relatives were able to go (there were 16 of us total) so that made the night a a lot better. Drinks for the night were 3 Miller Lights, 2 UV Blue and Sprite, 1 shot of Tequila Rose, 1 Chocolate Martini and 1 Key Lime Pie Martini. I drank more than I should have and I'm sure there are more calories in those drinks than I'd like to admit but I had fun. Dinner was chicken strips and fries. That dinner also could have been better but I kind of didn't care at that point. (Not good I know!) 

Yesterday was my day to make up for the damage I did on Saturday. I drank LOTS of water, about 70oz. I also only ate once. This wasn't on purpose I just really wasn't hungry but I knew I had to eat something so I had 5 of my turkey meatballs, about 1/4 cup cottage cheese, some grapes and a glass of milk. I went grocery shopping in the evening and picked up some essentials for the week. I got some Bear Naked Triple Berry Granola to add to my Greek yogurt, I'm very excited to see how it is. I also got some ingredients to make an egg white frittata for breakfast for the week. I had some this morning and it was good but next time I will leave out the green peppers I put in there. I guess I just can't make myself like them. Oh well.

I made it to the gym last night with a focus on legs. I also did light triceps/shoulder and lower abs/oblique's. I tried doing some lower abs on the BOSU ball and they were HARD. I liked it though so I think from now on my ab work will be done on the BOSU ball.

Alright well this post is getting long so I shall say goodbye. Until we meet again I shall leave you with some pictures from the weekend.

Enjoy! :-)
