I suprise myself sometimes

Another crazy weekend came and went for me. I feel like summer is flying by! I have been going nonstop every single weekend and it's not slowing down anytime soon. Don't get me wrong, I'm having a blast, but I need to have a relaxing day soon or I'm going to flip! lol

My friend's wedding is finally this weekend!! I cannot wait!! I have been on a super strict diet for the last two weeks. I wanted to look great in my dress and feel comfortable and not like I couldn't breath. This past weekend was a huge test for me.

Saturday I ran a race in the morning. Did not so great. After races there is always a huge bbq going on. It was so hard to resist all the food they had there, but I held strong. I went home, showered and then got a much needed haircut. Then it was time for another BBQ that afternoon. I did surprisingly well food wise. I had two hot dogs, one with a bun and one without. A very small portion of mac and cheese but it was made with quinoa pasta so I felt less guilty. And a piece of chicken. I had no chips which is always my weakness. I ate a ton of fruit to keep myself from picking at the other goodies there. I'm pretty proud how I handled myself.

On Sunday I did a juice fast. I just wanted to see what it was about. My brother has been doing it for a while now. I have to say, while I wasn't hungry really that juice tasted TERRIBLE. bleh. And there's like little particles of fruits and veggies floating that gather at the bottom of the cup. Not good at all. I ended up going to a second BBQ that day and I didn't eat a single thing. I cannot believe my willpower sometimes. If I really set my mind to something, I pull it off extremely well.

After the wedding on Saturday, I plan on taking a little break from my strict diet. I have no intentions of gaining weight, I just want to enjoy my summer and not count every calorie. If all goes well I'll just maintain and all will be good. I literally cannot wait until then. I already have my first meal planned. lol. I'm going to go to this great Mexican place and then Ice Cream!! Whoo hooo!!
