I went into a lot more detail on my other blog about this weekend, so I'll stick to the pertinent info now.
I had too much beer. I don't know why it seems to go down easier near the water. And jello shots.
I ate fairly OK, I didn't go crazy with junk. I did have 2 S'mores Saturday night and chips on the tubing trip Sunday. Lunch was a turkey & ham & veggies sub from Subway.
Definitely lots of exercise! Swimming & jet-skiing (until I killed it) on Saturday, then tubing for 5 or so hours Sunday.
I am so proud of myself! I was able to get on the jet-ski - THREE times !!! after being flipped off it in the middle of the lake. It wasn't the most graceful sight on earth, but I made it!
Oooh, and Friday night I went shopping for a new bathing suit. I grabbed one that I liked and the hanger said 16. I wasn't really sure what size I'd need, so that was going to be my yardstick. I tried it on & was shocked and upset that it was snug & the girls were quite literally pouring out the sides. When I took it off, I glanced at the tag and it said 12 !! SQUEEE! I . Fit . My . Butt . Into . A . 12 !!!!! Without damaging it or me, too !!!! It also was a really scary sight, but since I was the only one who saw it, that's ok! I had it on my body! **happy dance** Don't worry - I totally did not buy that one.
I did find a suit but once I got it home, I realized the boy shorts looked weird on me. My thighs are too thick to wear something like that. Not flattering at all. So I opted to try sewing up a few inches of the bodice on my black suit from my earlier post. Then to cover where the stitches are, I sewed a few pewter beads along the seam & it looked awesome! And I wasn't horribly self-conscious anymore!
So anyway, back on the wagon to making good choices.
btw - the following picture constitutes a bad choice! Some of the kids in our tubing group saw a nice muddy bank along the river & decided to make a mud slide. My 50 year old sister was with them and I couldn't let her show me up. The first time was all fine & good & fun. The second time I slipped in the mud. Skinned up my upper thigh pretty bad. This happened Sunday afternoon - this pic was taken this morning.
All I have to say is I'm glad it happened on a meaty area or this would really hurt!!!
