Very short recap entry.

This entry is going to be very short because I'm strapped for time, but I wanted to give you guys a little update.

First off, my friend Danielle got married! Woo hoo!

(If you can't view that, I'm sorry...if you add me on Facebook, you should be able to! :p)

She and her husband (!!!) John are currently on a fabulous two-week honeymoon tour of London, Paris (SO JEALOUS), and Barcelona. The wedding was beautiful and I got emotional. I cry at everything. But it was such a great night, and I'm so happy for them. ♥

Food-wise, this weekend could have gone a lot worse than it did. Granted, I didn't count everything I ate at the wedding, but I didn't go crazy. I had a plate and a half of dinner, which consisted of Manchego-stuffed chicken, flank steak, mashed potatoes, grilled root vegetables, and bread. It was all really delicious. I also had three drinks (one beer, a vodka and Diet Coke, and a bloody mary - I chose lower-calorie drinks), one slice of cake, two macaroon cookies, and a white-chocolate mold on a stick that was shaped like the Empire State Building. Oh and some appetizers, i.e. a few crackers, tiny mozzarella balls, veggies in balsamic vinaigrette, etc. Kiiind of a lot of food, but I went in with 42 WAPP, so I think I did OK considering. Yesterday I went a little bit over, but not too bad. Fewer than 10 PP, I believe. And the scale is being fairly forgiving, so I know I can crank out a loss in these next couple days if I keep my eyes on the prize.

My friend Ricky brought me this delicious beast from Trader Joe's in Connecticut:

Within 24 hours, half the jar was gone. This is my life. But it's only 1 PP per tablespoon at least...yeah, not a good excuse, I know.

Today has been going very well so far though. I am making steak, whole-wheat pasta (or couscous...haven't decided yet), and Brussels sprouts for dinner for Josh and me. And I have been sticking to my workouts! Katlyn and I did a great circuit workout Friday (my triceps were sore yesterday, which is a win), and I ran four miles Saturday.

Upon Kitzzy, George, and Katy's forceful shoving and peer pressure encouragement, I joined DailyMile! Yay! Please add me if you haven't already. I'll be using it to track my workouts from now on so I can view my progress leading up to the marathon more easily. I am still tinkering around with it, but I'm excited to see results and all that.

Sorry I don't have much more to say, but I promise to bring you more ramblings this week! Hope you all had a fabulous weekend.
