The weekend in review

Happy Monday! I hope everyone had a nice relaxing weekend.  I sure did. I thought I'd share it with you.  First of all, on Friday, my boys came home!! Yay!  I had rehearsal Friday night and then I came home and my sweet hubby had grilled steaks and veggies for us.  We had a wonderful dinner and enjoyed ourselves catching up.  Saturday I just cleaned house and chilled, then that evening John and I had date night.  We went to our old haunt, the place that we used to go at least once a week when we started seeing each other.  We had cocktails and appetizers and then went to a neighbors for drinks. 

Here's John enjoying his drink and shrimp cocktail....he's still rocking the Paleo diet!

John and I on the way home, we had fun!

Then on Sunday we just chilled out and that afternoon we went to see "Rock of Ages."  We both loved it.  I'm a huge sucker for a musical and the 80's music really was fun.  It was a really relaxing and wonderful weekend. 

John is still doing so great on the Paleo diet.  I'm doing my modified version of it and we're both feeling great.  My band has been at the perfect level of restriction for a couple of weeks now, but on Saturday, I got stuck and PB'd, it happened again last night.  Today I'm being very careful.  It's hard to eat Paleo when you're tight, that's for sure.  But I've really noticed a difference in the way I feel since I've eliminated bread and pasta from my diet.  This morning, my weight was still at 206, which I'm okay with, I'm really feeling confident that I will get the rest of my weight off.  I hope you guys have a great week.  I'll be busy with rehearsals and I'm looking forward to the day off for the 4th. 

Big Hugs!

PS -- My spell check won't work on blogger...and trust me I need it.  So please forgive any mistakes!

Ahhh, you guys are too cute!
What a fun weekend! Glad the mod-Paleo is working out for you. It's amazing how you can just change a few things in your diet and feel great.

I need to change a few things, bad!

Keep on keepin' on!

You look gorgeous! I love the paleo diet but you are right, it is kind of hard with restriction!

You are looking GREAT and I'm glad that you're feeling great too. Date night is always a good thing for married couples to do. With Sarah gone this month, it has given Jason and I some quality time. Big hugs to you!!

Great post! Keep up all of the hard work. One thing I’ve found to be extremely helpful and useful as a supplement to my current diet/exercise plan is Fullbar ( Not only do their products help you lose weight, they also help you maintain your weight loss.
