Hello my lovelies,
Well, I have completed 4 full weeks on my program. 28 days down. 32 more to go til the first day of spring. Yaay!
Day 26 (Friday, Feb 14)
Valentine’s day was nice. Got some gifts from hubby. I have to admit I was really worried because we were snowed in on Wed and Thursday, so I thought, “Oh goodness buddy, you are so in trouble if you waited to the last minute to get me a gift” But he surprised me! Hmmm.
It was a good eating day. We ate at a Mediterranean restaurant for valentine’s day. I had filet mignon, lobster tail and steam veggies. Hubby had a prime rib and veggies. My steak was one of the best seasoned steaks that I’ve ever
Day 27 (Saturday, Feb 15)
I am getting ready to start running. I went to Target and bought my very first ever pair of athletic sunglasses. So glad that I have been watching the winter Olympics because every sport has protective eyewear and I keep focusing on how cool the eyewear was and then I remembered that my last visit to the eye doctor, she told me that I had some small lesions on my eye that is from the wind blowing in my eyes and sun damage. The doctor told me to wear sunglasses all the time when I am outdoors to protect my eyes from wind and UV rays. but I have a hard time wearing shades because I can’t get over the fact that it alters the way the outdoors look. I am affected by the amount of sunlight I get so shades blocking sunlight depresses me! But I don’t want to continue damaging my eyes either. so I decided to invest in proper eyewear.
On Saturday night, we dropped the kids off at a kids-only party at a cousin’s house and then we attempted to go see Kevin Hart’s new movie, About Last Night (?) or something like that. The 840pm showing was sold out, so we went out for dinner and drinks at 42 Street Oyster Bar. It was nice. I have always like the ambience in that restaurant. It has a warm glow that makes my skin look 15 years younger. And its always crowded and full of energy. Our wait was 1 hour and 15 minutes so we hung out in the cocktail bar area. I asked these 2 guys if we could share their table and they said yes. They were Jay and Jim. Jay’s a real estate agent and Jim’s a commercial attorney. He is trying to buy a house in the North Hills area but it’s hard to find a house in that area because is such a high demand area. Jay is 47 and looked 32 (maybe it’s that beautiful lighting that I mentioned). Jim is 38 with a 3 year old and recently divorced. We had a nice time. I ordered buffalo shrimp, bacon-wrapped scallops, hush puppies (they have the best in town), black eye peas (to eat with the hush puppies — don’t laugh I grew up in the rural deep south). and I had fries. YES, IT WAS A CHEAT MEAL! It was some of the best food I’ve had in a long time. We will definitely go more often.
Day 28 (Sunday, Feb 16)
I laid in bed all day. I was going to go for a run, but I just laid in bed all day. I wasted 2 hours of life watching “A room with a view” on Netflix. The only reason I watched it is because Rupert Graves was in it, and I love him. But I hated it because it had Helen Bonham Carter and I don’t think I enjoy watching her in movies. Her personal life is so quacky that it affects my ability to enjoy her in movies. Eating was so so. We went to BurgerFi. We love that place.
Okay. I got to start running and I need to buy a blender so I had get more veggies and fruit into my family’s body!
Week 5 here I come.
