I have stayed on track for most of last week. After deciding to get real online with my weight loss, I felt like a huge weight was lifted. Both literally and figuratively. Hardy, har. I did allow myself one cheat meal and drink with a friend, and that was it. Every other meal, I made smart choices, and got myself to the gym almost every day last week, including both weekend days. Thankyouverymuch.
But back to this cheat meal. Jennifer and I met at Fly Bar in downtown Tampa, for some stellar happy hour deals. Jenn is my fave foodie friend, and when she said she wanted to try somewhere both of us had never been, she knew I’d be in. I have been once before, but it was over a year ago, and I had been dying to go back. So like the smart girls we are, we sought out the menus first, to ensure we got the most bang for our buck.
Happy Hour runs until 6:30pm, and we arrived at 6:22pm. With just eight minutes to spare, we ordered, and we ordered fast. Homemade hummus with grilled pita, flavorful sliders, and loaded nachos with ropa vieja, which I crave, as I type this, days later, were on our mind that evening. For $3.50, I ordered a vodka soda. We split the bill evenly, and before tip, the total was $12.06, per person. We has plenty of leftovers, and my cocktail was quite generous. I highly recommend Fly Bar, if you’re in the area.
Friday-Saturday, we babysat our niece and took her to see Despicable Me 2. I felt like I was last person to see this movie. I don’t care if you’re six, sixty-six, or one-hundred and six, it was funny. I can’t believe our niece is a kindergartner! Time flies, and I am just the aunt.
Later on, the best friend, and some co-workers saw John Mayer. I l.o.v.e. him, so. We camped out on the lawn and enjoyed the nice weather. This is where I slightly struggled in not drinking. It’s a concert, for pete’s sake! But I prevailed and stuck to water. I am quite proud of myself, actually.
|I think we know who was not excited to see Mr. Mayer…?|
Sunday, I worked out, ran errands, and prepped food for the week. Glamorous, no?
Linking up with Sami.
