Weekend Summer Fun!

June 12, 2016

Friday I got my walk in before heading off to my WW meeting, so my exercise plan to get in one hour a day/5 days a week, is right on track. I walked 3 days, and went to Yoga two days. I’ve maintained 171 for two weeks. If you read regularly, you know my body loves 172, so I’m stupid giddy about a pound. Call me crazy.

Friday night, Mike and I decided we’d have a little date night and have dinner out on a patio somewhere. Somewhere ended up being a mile up the street at Paddy O’Guigleys. It’s a little place on the inside, but outside, they have a really nice big patio with live music on the weekends. We ended up seeing several people we knew (cuz it’s right up the street!) and had a great night! I love a patio with live music, a cold beer and a few laughs. We were home before 10:00. Perfect!

Saturday morning started off with a cup of coffee on the deck,


After hot coffee, Hot Yoga at 8:00 am. The last few Saturday’s, I’ve gone to Yoga, then to the City Market in downtown Overland Park. It’s a small market, but it’s cozy and I like the feel of being there on a Saturday morning. Yesterday, my friend Niki went with me!


Last week, I found this cute little lady making crepe’s, so I ordered one and delivered it to my mom. It seemed to make her day, so I did it again. Last week, Banana and Nutella. This week, Strawberries and Caramel.



The rest of the afternoon was pretty relaxed, then Mike and I spent the evening on our deck. 


You guys, I grilled lettuce.


I also grilled broccoli.


Anybody else ever grill lettuce? A WW member suggested it in our meeting on Friday morning, so I knew I had to give it a try. Then, Trina over at Paleonewbie.com said that she had grilled up some broccoli, and I thought that sounded pretty darned good too. I had big grilling plans for the night.


Dinner was awesome!



We have friends coming to pick us up at 10:00 this morning to go downtown for brunch. We’re riding the streetcar from one part of downtown to the restaurant. We have a fun summer day planned, and I’m really looking forward to it!

I hope you all are having a great Summer Weekend too!

Here is what I ate the last two days……


Breakfast – 0 SP

I rarely eat before I weigh in, but I usually grab a banana or something to have after my meeting. Well, I forgot to grab anything and by lunch time, I thought I was going to die from starvation!! Not even kidding.

Lunch – 13 SP

Chipotle Bowl. Chicken, two servings of Fajita Veggies, Tomatoes, Guac and Lettuce.



Snack – 1 SP

Banana, Orange and a Pear with Almond Butter Drizzle and Cinnamon



Dinner – 25 SP

Beers and Grilled Chicken with about a tsp of Honey Mustard, while sitting out on the Patio.




Breakfast – 7 SP

I grabbed a few things out of the fridge and tossed them in the skillet. I topped it all with an egg and a little avocado. This was even better than I thought it might be! Spaghetti Squash is delicious!!

Red and Orange Bell Peppers, Red Onion, Leftover Spaghetti Squash and 1 oz Cooked Pork Sausage, topped with an Egg and Avocado.

    Grilled Peaches! I need to try that next! I just bought some. Thanks Nancy!

  2. Your grilling reminded me of grilled peaches.
    Yesterday my leader mentioned a truck that brings peaches to our area.
    I’ve never gone because you have to buy a big contain full but they are so good I’m going next Saturday. I going to freeze some and give some away. Summer is so wonderfully with all the fresh produce. I bet there is someone out there that has tried all that produce on a grill.
