Unlike most of the people I know I had to work on Friday [and all of this week, outside of Christmas Day] so I got myself up and ready to take on the day.
I have had this outfit idea in the back of my mind for awhile now, I felt like Friday was the day to rock and judging from all of the comments/likes on Instagram you guys enjoyed it as much as I did!
For lunch I hit my favorite deli/bagel shop for one of their delicious chopped salads
In the bowl: Romaine, Feta, Cranberries, Walnuts, Grilled Chicken, Bacon and Balsamic Vinaigrette
I will definitely be recreating this at home, it was SO good!
After work I met up with my mom, Eddie and cousins for dinner at my favorite place in town, Del Fuego! Everyone is home for the holidays so it was nice to get together
My cousin Hope made this Christmas tree card and it was so cute we decided to use it as decor during our meal.
I wasn't going to drink but suddenly had an overwhelming urge for a bloody mary so I went with it and boy was I glad I did. It was one of the best I've ever had.
I couldn't resist the opportunity to take a picture of my drink smiling at me.
I was up and in the gym bright and early for Jump and Drill.
Becky and I decided to set a goal of burning 700 calories in that class in the new year. It may be tough but I have a feeling we'll be able to do it.
I spent most of the day on the couch because we were heading into NYC for dinner and karaoke for a friends birthday and our reservations weren't until 9 pm [SUPER LATE for this grandma] so I wanted to relax as much as possible so I could hang all night.
Outfit of the Night, not my best angle but that's okay!
Eddie wanted to get in on the fun too
My husband is so handsome!
We had an absolute BLAST at dinner, I think I did 6 or 7 sake bombs in an hour? Yea not my wisest decision and I paid for that all day on Sunday.
I woke up around 9 am, which is unheard of for me, but we got home after 3 so I guess I needed the extra sleep. The majority of the day was spent regretting all of the sake bombs I had done the night before while laying on the couch.
This is what breakfast looked like...
Around 5:30 pm I started feeling more like myself again so I took advantage of it and meal prepped my lunches for Monday and Tuesday while helping Eddie make our dinner for that night.
Sweet potato mash, roasted brussels and baked chicken breasts are on the menu this week.
Dinner was the most incredible bacon cheeseburger I have ever had. Major props to the chef!
I promise there is a delicious burger under the piece of bacon and slice of cheese.
This morning I woke up and decided I need to start getting myself ready to track my meals again.
I am going to be using my Erin Condren Life Planner to help me keep track of what I am eating in the New Year because I feel as if I have gotten WAYYYY off track the past several months and gained some weight back I had lost.
2014 is going to be about losing the rest of the weight and getting in even better shape.
I'll be revisiting my Tone It Up meal plan as well as spending more time meal prepping healthy, clean eats starting January 2nd.
I know I feel best when I eat right but during the holiday season it feels almost impossible to be on the straight and narrow all day, everyday.
To new beginnings!
