Guitar Night - The Awakening

So, I had a couple of ol' skool friends over tonight for a Guitar Night Redux.  Kayleigh and Todd are both gone until next week, so it was just the me and my buddies.  We played old songs, we played new songs, we drank and bitched about life.  Just like the old days.

170lbs

I think my scale is still wonky, but I'm sticking with 170lb.  Although, that's probably changed now, given the lunch at Salty's with Todd's family.

Oy.

There was free cake.  That's all I'm gonna say.

But it was 80 degrees today, so I'm pretty sure I sweated some of it off.  Right?

However, this glass of wine may be putting it right back on...

Also, I seem to have skipped yesterday.  That's okay.  It was a bad day.  Ice cream.  Cookies.  Two glasses of wine.  I lost it completely.

Daily Consumption:

1 grande non-fat latte
1 cinnamon raisin bagel with some Brummel & Brown spread
1 piece of some kind of poppy seed, sesame seed cracker thing

2 glasses of water
2 blood orange mimosas**
1 piece of Salty's Famous White Chocolate Mousse Cake***
1 tall green iced tea from Starbucks
2 leftover skewers (chicken, onion, mushroom, pineapple, bell pepper)
1/2 cup of leftover brown rice
1 glass of red wine****

* Tiny, tiny, expensive piece of halibut
** It was lunch!  At Salty's!  On a BEAUTIFUL day!  Sara had two drinks, too!!
*** With raspberry drizzle, so there was fruit.  And it was FREE.  It would have be rude to not eat it.

Today was shopping.  Hours and hours of shopping with Kayleigh.  Well, sleeping until 10am, and THEN hours and hours of shopping.  And then dinner.  And then "Breaking Bad".

Oh, and did I mention that it's hot here?  Yes, hot.  Too hot.  But that's Seattle - we have two seasons.  Gray, cold and dreary.  Or hot.  Ack.

I Suck!

I completely spaced today.  Ah!  I ran to Home Depot, we worked in the yard, went to Grandma Kit's to go swimming (I didn't swim - just sun bathed) then had dinner at The Lock Spot Cafe.  Busy, but exhausting day.  And there was a storm!  With thunder and lightening! 

But I was asleep.
Poo.

Workin' It, Day 2

Yes, even more yard work today.  I did the back yard, while Todd and Tyler cleaned the gutters.  Which was most needed as the gutters looked like planter boxes.  Apparently, it's a Pacific Northwest thing.

Weighed myself this morning and still no change in the numbers, but I feel...tighter.  Less bloated.  Healthier.  Less bloated won't get me boots on January 1st, but whatever.

**********

Daily Consumption:

2 cups of coffee
1 pint of strawberry yogurt
1 bowl of broccoli coleslaw with a smidge of Ranch dressing
1 (small) bowl of leftover Chinese food
1 banana
1 bottle of Propel
3 pieces of bruschetta, crapload of watermelon and strawberries
2 Hawaiian Honeymoons*
1 Molten Chocolate Cake in a Jar**

* Pineapple orange juice with a splash of coconut rum. Todd concocted it on our honeymoon in Kauai.
** A gift, from Ann, for taking care of her cats while they were on vacation.  Holy gawd.

Daily Activity:

3 hours of yard work*

* I'm ready to be done with the yardwork.

Workin' It

I earned my alcohol today.  Three and a half hours of working in the yard - weeding, mowing, sweeping, raking, picking up all the shit I raked up.  And that was just the front and side.  Tomorrow afternoon, when the sun is beating down on the front of the house, I'll do the backyard.

**********

Daily Consumption:

1 cup of coffee
2 pieces of coffee cake ala Todd*
1 bottle of Propel
1/2 bbq chicken hoagie
1 salad with light Raspberry dressing
1 banana
1.5 bowls of Chinese food
2 spring rolls
1 raspberry lemondrop

* That is not a euphemism.  Todd makes excellent coffee cake.  It's how he lures me out of bed.

**********

Daily Activity:

3.5 hours of yard work

I've got nothing clever to tell you, but it was a lovely day.  Sunny, with some yardwork, then a pedi with Steph, and then some gawking at Home Depot.  I've picked out my tile for the bathroom, and the new flooring.  Now I just need money.  Blah.
