OMG I registered for a 5K!!

Yep never ever ever ever in a million years did I think I would ever do something likes this! I am scared to death! But I registered myself and my daughters for a 5K! The Color Vibe! I asked the girls if they would do it with me and they both agreed. YIKES!!!

OK I am going to calm down and try not to freak out!

Anyway! Saturday was a good day! We had a college thing with my daughter that took up the morning, a massage in the afternoon and then the hubby and I went out to dinner for what seems like the first time in a really long time, with out the kids. We went to Macaroni Grill. I love that place! I opted for Chicken Marsala and only ate about 1/3 of the entire plate. It was good. I did have one piece of bread and a glass of Moscato wine! OMG That wine is so good!

Food wise my day was good.
Calories: 1173.0
Fat: 41.17
Sugar: 50.5
Protein: 64.67

We did go to the bar with a group of friends from work and we had a great time! We saw the Boogie Machines! They are a 70's disco band and they are AWESOME!! We danced all night! And got some serious sweat on! My Fitbit finished the evening at 21,753 steps! And shows I burned about 900 calories! YAY!
My husband even had a good time! He doesn't dance though!
Cheri suggested I have a plan for the evening and I agreed with her. So my plan was to go slow and stay hydrated! I did drink. And we did several shots. I have no idea how many calories I consumed and I have chosen to not even worry about it. I am guessing somewhere around 700. I stayed away from the fruity drinks and basically had 1 large cinnamon toast crunch drink (this times 3) on top of the shots. But I also drank about 64 oz of water. Which is not usually the case. And we didn't order food at the bar. We typically do and this is where I usually get caught up in the food calories.
Funny story, for the first 2 hours we were there, I drank water. Why?!?! EVERYTHING I asked for at the bar they were out of! Eventually the manager apparently ran to the liquor store because I was suddenly flooded with a bunch of complimentary shots. But we had a great time!
I decided to make today a rest day. I feel great, but my legs are sore from all of the dancing last night and I exercised 5 out of the 4-6 day range I had this week. I feel good about the week that is behind me. We will see what the scale says tomorrow. But I feel like between my fill and my exercise my results will be good.

I have my second body contour wrap this afternoon. I will give an update on that tonight but so far the results seem to be good and legit.

Have a great day everyone! And thanks for stopping by! :)


  1. Sounds like a fun night.
    let us know about the body wrap- i would love to know if you see results.

  2. I have never heard of that drink before but it looks right up my alley. Do you know what is in it?

  3. Almost three months away, sounds very doable - how exciting!! And how cool to do it with your daughter.

    Sounds like you had a really fun weekend, and felt more in control of the choices - so happy for you!

    I can't imagine my fitbit ever saying that many steps, lol. :-)

    1. It's the dancing that made my fitbit get like that! (If you wear it on your bra you get extra steps for bounce I think :))

  4. Awesome that you're doing a 5k!! xxx

  5. Awesome! I just registered for the Color Vibe Raleigh!!

    1. Very cool Hollee! We will have a blast! Let us know how it goes when you get there! :)

  6. You are going to have SO MUCH fun! I did the Color Run last year and I loved it! It's really a blast, and a very low key feeling race.

    1. I love that they say its ok to walk too! And this one says it is non competitive which I think will help me feel less intimidated by the entire thing!

  7. You are going to have a blast at that 5k! Looks like you guys had a great weekend out.
