Day 5- Walk/Run- 30 minutes
I had the best weekend with mi familia! My sisters and brothers are just plain crazy and I love it. I went there with plans to stay on task and eat clean. After several meats, pastas, and cakes passed my eyes I knew I was going to break. I finally agreed to enjoy what I wanted to eat and get back on task on Monday.
Breakfast: Oikos caramel with too much flax seed
Lunch: 2 oz turkey sausage, 2 egg white omelet with spinach, 1 Earthgrain thin bun & cantaloupe
Dinner: Rice noodles with chicken and veggies in curry sauce
Dinner was take out because it was quick and easy to take to the drive in. We went to see The last Airbender. Can you see the screen? I couldn't. This is how far back we were and this is all that I saw. I still had fun though.
On Friday I received this awesome award from both Melissa and LeeLee. How cool is that? Both of these ladies are great and I LOVE their blogs and can't wait to read their posts each week! They're also great supporters. Go check them out and see for yourself. As soon as I get it together I will post what I'm supposed to do with it. Thank you again ladies I really appreciate you! :)
Saturdays vittles & events

I asked one of the kids to bring me a small piece of cake and this is what was brought.
Cake sampler- red velvet, german chocolate, carrot cake & double fudge chocolate
The only exercise that I got in was some volleyball with the big boys. I had a blast and happy to say that the old girl still has it! I haven't played V-ball since high school but I wooped some butts on July 3rd. I also played horseshoes, badminton, and catch with the kids. The kids always flock to me. I guess because I'm a big kid at heart.
Sundays vittles & events: (no pics for the vittles)
Lunch snack: 100 calorie cheez its
Dinner: leftover ribs & pasta salad
We planned to go to Belue Farms in Spartanburg S.C. on Saturday but decided to wait until Sunday instead. This was going to be one of the hi-lights of my trip. I had a long list of items that I wanted to purchase numero uno being the free range meat. Big mistake. We drove all the way down there and they were closed on Sundays. :(
Now normally I am on top of things as far as checking for hrs of operation and directions and such but my mind was so clouded from excitement. I will definitely be back though.
On the way back we stopped at a fruit stand and brought back plenty of these so the trip was not a total bust:
When I returned home to GA late last night I felt stuffed and super tired. Before I went to bed I located a cleanse I had tried a while ago that ended in disaster. When I purchased this tea a while back I immediately made a cup and sipped it to the last drop. I was confined to my home for 2 days. I couldn't understand what went wrong, this is just tea right, so I didn't need to read the directions. Ha! The directions clearly stated to steep the tea no longer than 2 minutes. I believe i steeped mine for almost 30 minutes because I was cooking dinner at the same time that day. THIS time I did it right. I made a cup before bed followed by a cup of peppermint tea as well and now I feel all better. :)
I weighed in this morning thinking surely I had gained a couple of pounds and prepared myself for it. To my surprise i stared down at this. 160 lbs is where I have plateaued for the past 4 years so I am so happy to see this. I weighed myself 5 more times just to be sure.

Current Weight: 159
Lowest Weight: 130
Goal Weight: 135
Waist: 29 1/2
Chest: 33 1/2
