5 Week Challenge…Day 4

May 31, 2015

I’ll just start by saying that yesterday was a lot of fun and a Perfect Saturday!

A friend came over for coffee, then we headed to downtown Overland Park to the City Market. It’s small compared to downtown Kansas City’s market, but they have a lot to offer, just on a smaller scale. My friend and I noticed a long line at a tent, so we stopped to see what must be so good that there was such a line! It was for toast. 

This toast……


They also had Pour Over Coffee, (you can see them making it behind my toast!) which I love! The toast was amazing. We had them cut ours in half so we could share it, and I did share a couple of bites of mine with some friends that we ran into! I’m guessing on the points, but it really was worth standing in line for! The pour over coffee was delish! Oh….and I bought some zucchini and bell peppers!

Later in the afternoon, two friends accompanied me on my walk, and we ended up running a lot of it!


We had some impromptu plans with friends for a Happy Hour and Dinner! We spent the evening enjoying sushi and wine.

After dinner, we all decided to stop by the neighborhood bar on the way home, and there we found more friends attending a birthday party, so we joined in and there, I drank beers.

I had a really fun day yesterday. I got my exercise in. I drank lots of water. I ate mostly simply filling foods. My only real mess up was the drinks.

I even thought I was Madonna! See what 2 glasses of wine, and 3 Tank 7’s will do to a girl?


Here are yesterdays eats.

Light English Muffin with 2 tsp Almond Butter, Watermelon, Frothy Coffee

    I love an art fair! Good for you for getting some walking in! Maybe you walked off some of that art fair food?

    Have a great week Nancy!

  2. Remember the 80/20 rule. Some days it’s 50/50.
    Oh my weather turned out to be cloudy and cool (high of 64) so I was able to go to Summer Fair–It’s in Cincinnati and it’s an art fair by the river. I walked around for 2 & half hours. But I ate some fun food so my day might have been 60/40.
