Saturday night Birthday Dinner

Saturday went so fast....
Corbin went to yet another birthday party and we went out to get groceries food wise I was ok.
Then at 6pm I met up with my friends for a birthday dinner. It was fantastic! I didn't know how all the individuals would get on but it was a fantastic night out.

Dinner was fantastic and the conversation just never stopped and I was on a high that is for sure. We went to a Mongolian Restaurant and I had two plates of food... but you choose out of a lot of raw food and they cook it in front of you and you have rice with it. I wasn't going to worry too much on what I ate but made sure I didn't put too many sauces or oil with it and instead chose spices and especially garlic to satisfy me.

I couldn't even manage to put the dessert in me as I was sooooo full but wished (in a way he he he) I had had it as it looked yummy but felt good that I stopped. I did manage to have two bourbon and cokes and then we went to the movies to see Bewitched... OMG it wasn't worth the money that is for sure. It was a really slow movie and not what I thought it would have been. I would not even see it again on DVD.

I am really glad that Kris and her husband came as it was nice to get to know her and husband other than online and through the gym.

I didn't want the night to end and at 1o.30 when the movie was over we wanted to go and have a coffee at Starbucks but they had just closed. I didn't want the night to end. It was great to have some adult conversation and not to fear what you would want to say (like with Blonde etc) or to feel uncomfortable. When we drove home hubby and I were saying we should do this more often and not just go out to dinner have BBQ's or pot luck dinners and just get out there with the kids too. Sometimes we all get caught in a rut and stay home watching tv when we could be living our lives. So this summer we need get our groove on he he he.

Today was a lazy day but I am ok day with that as I have always wanted just the family Sundays where you relax and just enjoy the time.

Just did things around the house and played on the computer for a little bit of the day... then went to the gym around 4pm with Kris and it was a work out... arms are feeling it tonight that is for sure. It was nice to have the trainer Troy there as he kept things going and pushed us a little more but I am certainly feeling it now that is for sure. My arms and tummy are feeling the burn. Then afterward went and had a spa. Kris and I were talking and decided that we would go Mondays - to the Combat class
Tuesdays - in the morning
Friday - night
Sunday - early evening so that we get to see troy and he can give us some more pointers. He he he we also heard that he will be doing Friday nights soon too so that will be good. He is just so relaxed and makes you feel normal and not a big person trying to do something small people should do. Also he pushes us a little so we don't slack off.

All in all I have had a good weekend.

Hope everyone is doing ok. I have now been doing weight watchers 9 months today!!! ARGHHHHH I was sort of wishing that I would have been further down in the weight but that is ok.

Good night all

Hey mate, sounds like you had a full on weekend too!
And don't stress about how much you have lost in the 9mths as you have to keep on remembering how far you have come and how well you have done in those 9mths! It took me 9mths to lose my first 19.8 (the wedding challenge) so I so know what you are saying... but slowly and surely and you will keep it off for good!!

Sounds like you had a great evening on Saturday night. Karen is right - you have to remember how far you have come in the last 9 months and accept that this isn't going to be a quick fix - it is a whole change in life style.
Take care and have a great week !

You are SOOOO close to your 20kg mark, and that was your goal for the WHOLE YEAR, so I wouldn't be concerned about the 9 month mark if I were you!

Sounds like you had a great weekend, and good on you and your hubby for deciding to take life by the horns this summer :-)

I'm glad you had such a wonderful Birthday weekend. You're right, you do need to get out more often... nothing wrong with that at all! Bring on the SUMMER!!

Thanks for the tip on Bewitched. Was thinking about seeing it, now I will wait for the dvd. It really is good to get out and about not always as a family but as a couple too.

I've just done the math and 18.7kgs over 35 weeks is over 500 gms. Thats fantastic. You are doing everything right.
