The Long Weekend is Here - Memorial Weekend!!

It's time to buckle down and get ready for a very hard weekend of partying and food!!!

I have tomorrow off from work, so I will get up early, walk an hour and bike an hour. I will stay busy throughout the day, maybe doing some Kayaking, and then at night, I will be going to the Full Moon Party to celebrate Sandy's birthdy for alot of dancing on the beach and sweating like crazy!!! I don't need drinks, so I will stick to good ole fashion water.

Saturday, I will be celebrating my mom's 85th Birthday, so there will be alot of goodies around. I will mainly try to stick to the healthy stuff and maybe just tasting the special goodies. I haven't touched my extra 35 points, so I should be able to do well.

Sunday and Monday are free days, so I expect to get in some morning and some afternoon exercise. I will try to barbecue and stick to the plan.

I am on a mission and it CANNOT fail. My weigh in will be on Tuesday, since Monday is Memorial Day. I expect to see a number lower than 159.1 =)

Strawberries & Blueberries = 1 point
Fruit Dip = 2 points
Oreo Delite = 1 point
1 Flat bread = 1 point
Tuna = 2 points
Cucumbers = 0 points

  1. With Memorial weekend on the horizon, here's a 2 point recipe that will have you thinking that you've cheated. Stay Strong, and don't forget if you over eat just a tad that's okay, just work out a little bit harder that's what outdoor weekends are all about.
