Weekly Weigh In Linky Party! 5/12/18

Happy Saturday Friends!!!

   I hope that it is as beautiful for all of you today as it is for us here in Eastern NC!  Yesterday was the perfect beach day!  Here on the outer banks the water is still too cold to swim in, but the air is perfect!  Not too hot, the sand is still cool and doesn't burn your feet, and there aren't so many tourists here yet.  We really enjoyed yesterday's relaxing beach day!!!!  It was especially great since my Mom is in town visiting for my son's birthday!  So this will be a short but sweet Weigh in, so I can spend some time with my family this beautiful weekend!  It's currently 84 degrees, I'm cooking potato salad for grilling out this evening, we are baking my son a birthday cake and filling up the swimming pool!  With any luck our skin will be a little darker, and our hearts a little lighter by the end of the day!  So here's to my weekly weigh in!

       I was really not looking forward to weighing in this week!  To be honest.  It's my sons birthday week, and I overindulged big time.  Granted, not quite as 'over indulging' as I usually do on birthdays, but I certainly overdid it.  We had pizza on Tuesday and it was from the Pizazz pizza place at the beach, and it was soooo so good.  As if overeating on pizza wasn't enough, he wanted spaghetti for supper (can we say carbs carbs carbs) and we invited a wonderful family friend over for dinner, and he baked my son a yummy chocolate cake!!!   So..  yes.  Certainly overdid it on Tuesday, and didn't work out at all on Tuesday...  but it was such a fun day for my boy!

The Aquarium on Roanoke Island!  We had such fun!  My boy really loves sea creatures!  They have alligators and sea turtles in this aquarium!  

Our tradition of sprinkled pancakes in the morning!

The cake Dr. B made him!  It was so cute, and soooo so delicious!!!!

    The rest of the week I did okay working out.  I had a breakthrough with my workout on Thursday!  So I will definitely be updating about that after we enjoy our weekend!  But all in all, it's been a fantastic week.  Rainy for most of the week, but still a great week.  I did gain a pound this week...  but I'm not going to beat myself up over it.  I know that I didn't work to my fullest, and next week can be a better week!  Plus there was cake.  1 pound isn't bad if there is cake!
   I hope you all had a great week and that you will link up along with me!  I will add my new series I'm writing, my "Diary of a Weight Loss Journey", where I've been sharing my heart as well as my hits and misses.  This past week I've been sharing past writings about weight loss, but soon I will share some things that are more recent.  Enjoy, and please link up with me on your scale and non-scale victories!!!  Have a great week guys!
