Great weekend - bad girl

As the title says I had one of the best weekends I had in a long time BUT I was not really good.

I spent the weekend at a cottage up in the mountains in the Eastern Townships of Quebec with my best girls. we had a blast and my stress just melted away. It was a much needed weekend.

But as you all know, I am a stress eater. So with the news that I couldn't lose more weight for my dress and the culmination of the intense stress I was feeling last week everything went to hell. I probably at over 2000 on Saturday. It wasn't the quality of the food that was bad it was just the quantity.

Friday night, I had some homemade, thin crust, veggie pizza (tomato sauce, tomatoes, bococcini, and basil). Saturday:

2 egg whites scrambled with onions and spinach
3 vegan muffins (really good made with coconut, lemon, oats and avocado)
1 piece of vegan raisin bread
1/4 cup granola
1/8 cup light vanilla Activia Yogurt

1 cup home made mac & cheese (probably the worst meal all weekend)

Teriyaki Stir Fry
red and yellow peppers
snow peas
oyster mushrooms
firm tofu

and throughout the day...I was munching on fruit, veggies, more muffins (they were bite sized) a small piece of fudge and I had a few glasses of white wine.

Sunday I had 2 crepes (thin ones)
one had
1 egg white
4 asparagus spears
1/4 cup grilled veggie mix
and a light sprinkling of cheese

the other
1/2 tbs peanut butter
1/2 a banana
1/2 tsp maple syrup

I didn't eat until I got home at 5 which was left over stir fry

So today I am liquid fasting. I have a organic smoothie waiting for me at lunch and I have taken my diet pill and my vitamins to get me through the morning along with my coffee.

It was a much needed weekend but I HAVE to get back down to business. I did realize one thing this weekend. Me and my bridesmaids T and J have matured ages over K and C. T and J got their frustrations out over my MOBzilla of a mom and things sort of settled out. They understand that it's not my fault and that they should push more to get more control over the shower and things that need to be done.

I have to say that I miss my girls horribly and I wish we were able to see each other more often. On that note, I will be seeing all of them again at my wedding shower/bachelorette in 3 weeks and then again at my wedding 3 weeks after that! It will be the most times since convocation that we've been all together. I'm super super happy :) yay!

I hope this week doesn't destroy my good, relaxed mood.

I have my engagement photo shoot this week on Wednesday so that's a day off to get my hair and makeup done and dress up! yay!

Anyways time for me to get to work!

I can't wait to catch up on your blogs!


  1. I did very bad this weekend myself. Time to get back on track. Glad you enjoyed your weekend. Sometimes you just need to eat, drink, and be merry.

  2. Isn't it funny? We can eat the most healthy choices, but somehow manage to eat lots of them! I indulged in too much soup and sugar free pudding this's not like i ate pizza (my weakness) and fries! Oh well! I bet you're ecstatic to be able to maintain and not have to lose! Congrats!
