The Monday after…

HI GUYS! I am a very happy and blessed lady! This weekend was way more amazing than I thought it would be. I will give you all the little details, and I openly admit my lack of self-control this weekend. We very much indulged, Happy Birthday to me.

My husband is so good to me. We have been married since 2010 and I was only 19 when I married him. I won’t lie, sometimes I wondered why I would have made such a commitment at such a young age, but I do not regret it at all. The more we have grown together, the stronger we have become as a couple. I do not feel ashamed to admit, I love this man a hell of a lot more than the day I married him. He has always been so patient with me and he treats me like the Princess my Dad always told me I was. (yes, I was a spoiled Daddy’s girl, now I am a spoiled wife). Ajers and I haven’t always gotten along, the beginning of our marriage was hell, for the both of us. primarily it was my fault, I suffered with severe depression and anxiety, and I didn’t know who I was as a person. I for sure didn’t love myself, so how was Ajers ever suppose to love me. It wasn’t until probably year five we really started getting it together.  Young love. My forever love. You’re too good to me.

Enough of the love mush, what is important now is to focus on the real issue here,


So Friday night I was starting to feel under the weather. (my son had been battling a cold and double ear infection) the only thing I wanted was soup! I needed to warm my soul and have some feel good food before our big weekend trip. My mom and I made our way to Panera Bread, of course I had to get soup and I had to order bake potato and half of a kale/romaine caesar chicken salad. IT WAS SO GOOD AND JUST what I needed. The weather here friday was BLAH, it was one of those BLAH day’s and that soup warmed my soul.

Saturday, MY BIRTHDAY, we wake up, get ourselves loaded up and headed to CHICKFILA, because it was MY BIRTHDAY AND I WAS GOING TO HAVE A CHICKEN BISCUIT because guess what I AM ALIVE and I wanted a biscuit for my birthday! ( I know a huge mistake but a very yummy one) and yes there is chicken on that. hehe16298715_10154199356960887_6681432068580360677_n

We then dropped my baby off at my sister’s house and headed on to our ADULT weekend. I was so excited! My husband got me the FitBit I have been wanting. I had my original fitbit from two years ago and it worked just fine, but I am a sucker for black and gold things. AHHHHHHH and when I saw the fitbit Alta, I knew I needed that! After getting it setup, I had to get my steps in so we stopped at the Tanger outlet mall on the way to Galveston. We literally walked 12,000 steps when we were there! I scored a new birthday dress and a new Michael Kors wallet. (heheh thanks again BABE)16388204_10154199391260887_1919877278882982956_n.jpg

Now here is where I derailed:

The view from the room


This was my birthday lunch/dinner! (we never went to dinner because I was still way too full from eating this)

The appetizer was called shrimp kisses which was, shrimp stuffed with jalapeno and pepper jack cheese wrapped in bacon! OMGGGG I had three of those and did only eat TWO onion rings. AND THAT SALAD YALL WAS THE BOMB DIGGITY! It was a shrimp/crab cobb salad. I took off the tomatoes and blue cheese. I don’t like salad dressings, not even ranch, so no biggie for me. I AM OBSESSED WITH LEMON so it went perfectly on this salad. Put a fork in me and call me done, my husband had to roll me out of there. After “dinner” we took a walk down the beach… I had to or I was gonna throw up. We saw a pregnancy photo shoot, and witnessed a wedding of two people eloping. It was a very beautiful day! I hadn’t been that happy in a long TIME.

Okay so you know it was my bday, and this mama had to have an excuse to have a cake… CHILI’S chocolate molten cake was calling my name, so after walking for four hours, we reached chili’s and split the cake… yessss I shamefully admit it, but it tasted great then. sigh. AND TO ADD INSULT TO THE INJURY, we stopped at Spec’s Liquor and picked up……

  • Crown
  • Watermelon Pucker
  • Redbull

You know what that makes, a very drunk night… Together in the hotel room alone my husband and I drank half the bottle of crown and woke up with a hangover….. IT WAS A GOOD NIGHT, but man was it worth it, probably not. Living life….

The next morning I knew I f’d up. I AM STILL SO BLOATED! We WALKED from our hotel down a few blocks to the Ihop and man food tasted so heavenly after the night before. This is what I ordered:Egg white veggie omelet with bacon and a bowl of fruit.16299162_10154199356815887_2545203330388526392_n

One the way home, we stopped at Lupe Tortilla’s and since I was like screw it, I already f’d up this weekend, I ordered my beef fajita tacos but I could only eat 1/4 of it… SHAME, hanging my head but still smiling about it.

Through it all, I have may gained 3 plus pounds back in three-day but I lived a little this weekend. I knew I was splurging and I can tell you this Monday Morning I am paying for those choices. I know what I need to do to get back on track but overall I had a really, really wonderful time living with my husband. We hadn’t been on a date or just together alone in over a year! It is okay to live a little, but never okay lose focus. This week I will be eating nothing but whole foods, I need to up my water intake to recover and RUNNING is going to be on my first item on my to-do list everyday this week on top of my yoga and weights!

I hope each and every one of you had a wonderful weekend.
