weekend wrap-up

OK, so where did I leave off? Friday, right. It's been a blur between the wedding and the hangover. I did manage to get a wod in and also stay on the paleo track. It wasn't easy, but I did it.... for the most part. ('the most part' is why I'm fasting today) Friday night the rehearsal dinner was fantastic, grilled flat iron steak and sweet potatoes. I skipped the chocolate mousse with the exception of 2 bites since everyone was sighing and moaning at how delicious it was. Besides, I had enough calories in me from the massive glasses of wine I ingested.

Saturday we had beautiful weather to celebrate cousin Allison's wedding. She looked stunning and was just overcome with emotion at finally being able to celebrate her special day with the love of family and friends surrounding her.

Now to the food. Between the cocktail hour and the dinner at the reception, it was a paleo lovers dream. Marinated and grilled portabellas, squash, zuchinni, eggplant, olives, shrimp cocktail, chicken and bacon skewers, bacon wrapped scallops, mini lamb chops, crab cakes... just fantastic. Dinner was salad with strawberries and a roasted half breast of chicken and veggies. Of course I skipped the vodka rigatoni and bread. The deserts looked fantastic but I opted out and went straight for the molded chocolate shots filled with Sambuca. Come on, I have my priorities. If I'm going to indulge in extra calories that's the way for me. Although I did pay for it in more ways than one. Not only did I have a little hangover from the alcohol but most of my angst came from the sugar overload. Unfortunately the Absolute and cranberries went down like water, all 6-7 (lost count) of them. If there's one thing you didn't know about me it's that I can hold my liquor. Not sure if thats something to brag about or not. We  did have a great time with the family. Rarely do the 3 brothers and wives get a chance to hang out in an adult setting without any children so we made the most of it. I'm still keeping my fingers crossed there won't be any surprise photos posted on Facebook for all to see. Yikes.

Didn't really have time to keep my normal schedule of wods except for Monday before we packed up the kids and headed to the shore. I was hoping between the dancing on Saturday and the beach day trip it would make up for it. Really, the beach requires the farmers carry (boards, bags, umbrella), snatches (holding and lifting 45 pound son over waves), lunges (rescuing children from being knocked over from waves), squats (up and down from the low beach chair), deadlifts (picking up shells, kidding), digging tide pools, 10 games of Kadima... Even though it was all fun, it was not really a relaxing day at the beach. Those of you with little kids know this, but it was a great day. The weather was perfect, the kids were well behaved, no meltdowns, no potty issues, no fighting or kicking sand on each other, good day.

As I don't really need to take a rest day since my body is actually feeling pretty good, I need to get my house in order. It's a disaster between the sticky kitchen floor and random food crumbs, the sand in my car, the mountain of laundry... my OCD is acting up. Need to clean it up before I lose it.
