I spent the weekend in Comfort and Fredicksburg Texas. My Daddy lives up there. I went for a visit with my son. It was a wonderful, busy, but somehow relaxing weekend. Friday evening I got there and they (my dad and step mom) had made us a special dinner of fried venison steak, creamed peas, fresh green beans, and mashed potatoes. It was a delicious dinner and I enjoyed every bite. You can't find food like that in the city. We woke up Saturday morning about 9 am and traveled from Comfort to Fredicksburg where my great Aunt and Uncle live on beautiful Texas Hill Country land. I can't find silence like and beauty like that anywhere else. My Aunt made lunch and it was delicious. We had baked Goulash with tater-tots on top with green beans and corn bread and chocolate pudding or ice cream for dessert. I indulged in a little ice cream with chocolate syrup. This weekend was the first weekend of hunting season which in our family means campfires in the evening. We went to the shooting range where the campfires take place. I am very happy to say that my son loved it just like I did as a kid. I will say that calorie wise I probably over indulged considering the beer, pork loin, potato salad and french fries that were served but oh well it was a wonderful evening enjoyed by all. My poor baby got all tuckered out and fell asleep on me, which was wonderful for me because he has not done that since he was 6 months old. I absolutely love the country! Someday I hope to move there and have horses, cows, chickens, goats, sheep and any other farm animal available lol! The peace and quiet that one finds there is....amazing, almost indescribable!
I missed the weigh in on Friday. I am planning on weighing in Monday morning. Hopefully it will still count, I am not sure.
Also I went shopping on Friday before I left town and I am excited to announce that I am officially a size 16W/18w depending on store/style! I was a 22W so I am very happy with this victory. Very soon I will no longer be shopping at plus size stores. I am having a love/hate relationship with this idea. I have been shopping at Lane Bryant (my main plus size store) for a few years now. I absolutely love the fashion and clothes that they offer, I hope I can find the same type of fashion elsewhere. Part of it is that once I am smaller than the size that they offer which is a 14W, I am nervous of shopping in other stores because I have become so used to going to one store! For this week I am hoping to make it to Zumba on Monday and Friday, possibly Wednesday. On Tuesday and Thursday I am planning on doing Jillian's 30 day shred. My focus for the week is re-hydrating, because I did not drink *any* water this weekend. I actually drank maybe 12 oz of water but that is pretty much nothing when you should be drinking 125oz of water a day.
Anyway it was a very quiet relaxing weekend. I loved it and I can't wait to do it again.
