|Me and Karlie at the Air Show|
Our 6 year anniversary will be the 30th. Because my son was born one year to the day we were married, birthday celebrations end up on top of our anniversary so some years we have just passed it over. This year we made it a point to celebrate. I loved spending the weekend with my smokin' hot wife and can't imagine the past 6 years without her. She is my biggest support, my best friend and I am so lucky she is mine.
This last weekend we celebrated early and I took Karlie to Wendover, NV to go see Travis Tritt and to just get away from the kids and my work. It was short lived but awesome. As far as eating well, vacations and road-trips seem even harder for me than holidays.
Friday after work we dropped the kiddos off at my sister's (Thanks Shelley) and headed out. In the past, road-trip wasn't official until there was a 64 oz. Mt. Dew in my hand with a bag of various snacks to go with. Typically there would be Red Vines, Mike & Ikes, Chips, something chocolate and an apple that I never intended on eating. We did grab a drink and a snack but Peppered Beef Jerky and a Med. Diet Coke was all that made it along with some Crystal Light. So far a win.
We got settled in at our hotel at the Rainbow Casino and decided that we were going to hit the buffet because it was seafood night with crab legs. Buffet style eating in general is no excuse for eating bad. In fact, if you are careful, sometimes it's even better as I mentioned in this older post because everything is on the side already. I wasn't careful. I ate too much and honestly I kind of planned on it. I'm not pissed at myself about it but It's kick butt time going forward. The crab legs were amazing BTW:)
I thought the hotel I booked had a pool and we were planning on hanging out there on Saturday ... but I was wrong. No pool at the Rainbow. So what to do? We decided we would drive around to see if we could find some shops or something and ended up following signs to an Air Show. It wasn't planned but that made it all the more fun to go. It was nice and hot but a little breeze made the heat enjoyable.
A much needed weekend behind me, it's time to get back to work, drop some serious poundage and recommit 100%. My goal is to hit 150 Pounds lost by next Sunday. I can't wait to rock it at the gym tonight!
