Weekending... On A Tuesday

on
Tuesday, August 29, 2017

How has a month gone by once again? It's almost September in the blink of an eye. I woke up this morning and there was a definite coolness in the air. It may be just the winds of hurricane Harvey making their way across the South or it may be fall. I am hopeful that it is the later. Football season starts this weekend and I can hardly contain my excitement and nervousness. It's not often that the biggest game of the year gets played on the opening day of the season starring your team. I am nervous but super excited that it will be here in my town. Unfortunately  at $300 for the cheap seats I will be tailgating down town and then watching from home. I am however checking out the new Mercedes Benz Stadium this Thursday to take in a Falcons pre-season game with my kids so at least I will get a peek at the hottest venue in the country right now a little early.

I had a cough cough super busy  weekend. It's so weird, now that Olivia is off at college I actually have real kid free weekends back and it's been like 2 years. Ever since she got her car she pretty much always stayed at my house even if it was a Dad's weekend. Me being me, I secretly wished once in awhile I could have the house all to myself for 2 days. And now I do. She actually popped in on Friday to get some more of her stuff and spent Friday night with her Dad, gone again on Saturday. She loves Statesboro and college in general. She has already been offered a job at the barn she is riding at and is thinking about trying out for the equestrian team. I couldn't be happier.

But back to my weekend. I stayed up too late Friday catching up on the DVR and slept in on Saturday morning. I stayed in all day and got most of my laundry done, sheets washed, a little light housework... my favorite kind of Saturday work that requires no interaction with people or wearing of pants. Heaven. Saturday night I went to Yacht Rock Revue at  The Tabernacle with friends. They do  a big show every summer in Atlanta and it is always a blast. I upgraded to VIP Room tickets this year for $25 and now I might be a regular there. For the extra cash you get private bathrooms, separate bar with pretty much no line, couches, the event on big flat screen TV's if you feel like taking a break, a rooftop deck with an amazing view of the ferris wheel and Centennial Park and tacos. Yes, trays of freshly made tacos. Sold.

We beat it out of the concert a little early to get back on our side of town and watch the fight at the local sports bar. Y'all I think that shit was so rigged. They called it too early in my opinion. No knockout, McGregor wasn't down or unable to get up, slurring... they didn't even check his eyes!! He was smiling and laughing and apparently, fully decked out in one of  his trademark suits partying the rest of the night away at the Wynn. Uh huh. But seriously, I'd let Mayweather beat the crap out of me for $100 million or so dollars too. Sign me up.

McGregor could be seen dancing on the tables at Encore Beach Club

I guess I overindulged a little bit because I woke up about 30 minutes before I was meeting a date for brunch. Ooops. Nothing like showing up for a date with sheet marks on your face and smelling like a local IPA. And people wonder why I am single. Kidding, sorta... I told him I was running late and bought myself another 30 minutes. We had a nice time. Nice guy. Yeah... I love brunch though, that's about it. That was a treat. Somehow this weekend I managed not to pay for any of my own food or drinks except like one round and a giant Diet Mt. Dew on Sunday. Winning at life.

Speaking of winning at life I have been doing the Keto thing for about 2 weeks now. I really hate saying diet because it's really just following macros to keep your diet 60-75% fat,  15-30% protein and 5-10% carbs aka low carb, high fat. Everyone keeps asking me "why are you doing that, I thought you loved Whole30". I do, just felt like I needed a change and some stricter/not as strict rules to follow. I thought I could sustain this for a bit and still have a social life because liquor has zero carbs... as in I can have a Tito's and soda or 3. What I have learned so far is it works and lbs start falling off but I don't love it. I am used to consuming large amounts of fruits and veggies and with Keto you just can't because carbs. Not sure if this is helping me or not because I still feel like I can't get my food groove back. I am not cooking or prepping at all and it is making it much harder for me to stay on track. I don't know what the solution is but the problem is I just don't want to do it, I am being lazy. I'm going to do this for a bit though and see if I can dump the 10-15 lbs I found this summer. Why can I gain 5 lbs in 5 minutes yet it takes 2 weeks to lose 5 lbs? I hate this stupid roller coaster.

So it's feeling like Fall to me and I am ready to get off of my summer hiatus from blogging, cooking, meal prepping, working out and stop being such a miserable slug. Wish me luck!!

Happy Tuesday!

  1. I've been doing Intermittent fasting for about a month now and it's pretty good. took some time getting used to (delaying eating) but i can see a difference already.

  2. I could never do Keto with chris because of the fruit and veggies. It's at least half my diet! I found something that works really well, get a stomach bug the same time you have a cold. I dropped 5 lbs today. Dirty daycare germs. Glad to hear that Olivia is settling well in to college life! I forgot you were a Florida State fan. Gross. Haha jk. Little game day smack talk to get in the mood!!! Yay football!!!!!! Hope you have a great week!
