Cinco de Mayo fun and a birthday thrown in!!

I was not looking forward to missing the boys this weekend.  As it turns out I was very busy so the time went by rather quickly.

Picked up the boys packets for the Race for the Cure this coming Saturday!  Alan, Nichole and Beth Ann and I went to our favorite local Mexican restaurant for dinner on Sat night.  I had a couple of sips of a frozen Margaretta and that was enough believe it or not!  Had a great time!

Saturday morning, had to head off to Adam's soccer game.  They finally scored a goal, it was so wonderful!  Then Nichole and Beth Ann and I headed to the Riverplex and our Saturday morning Zumba class!  I just want to say, my butt hurts real bad these days, from all the squats.  Dawn makes us do plenty of them, she says she is toning our butts for bikini season.  Hell, I will not see a Bikini this season nor next, probably never again, which is quite alright with me and YOU probably. LOL  However, I am happy that my butt is getting noticeably smaller.

New Balance 730
Then it was off for some power shopping at Kohls.  I had some Kohl's cash to spend and I had a 20% off anything in the store coupon as well.  I got some great deals.  I bought a couple of tops, and a white pair of Capri's size 16!!!!!  That made me smile.  Then I found the best thing of all.  My new running shoes.  I am so excited to try them out tonight.  They are incredibly light weight so I will be doing Zumba in them!

It was a good day, and beautiful weather.  Yesterday Mom and Nichole and I went to La Peep for lunch.  It is a nice local place that has some fairly healthy choices.  I had grilled chicken breast on a bed of Penni pasta with red and green peppers, red onions and mushrooms and sun dried tomatoes.  I ate all of the chicken which was about one cup, and only four bites of pasta.  I was full!!!  I left the bread stick alone, and I ate all of my 1/2 cup of mixed fruit. Great lunch and great company!

Last night we had Alan's birthday party when the boys came home.  He is 57 tomorrow.  We had an Angry Birds cake which we knew that Cole would just love.  We were not disappointed he was so excited by it.  He sat on Gramps' lap and helped him blow out his candles.  It was priceless.

I am anxious for ZUMBA tonight with Jose`.  Four friends from work are coming to see what all the fuss is about.  They have never done Zumba.  I think it will be great to see them try it, and hopefully they will find it as much fun and rewarding as I have.

Can I tell you that I look forward to my work outs, in fact they are on my mind all of the time.  I wish my gym would add more classes, that would not have been me not so long ago.  I would have found excuses to NOT WORK OUT!  I am so glad that I turned that corner for good! My body is definitely under construction in a good way!

I am also proud to say that my 3.3 pound loss for the week stuck!
