Day 21 - aka weigh in number 3...and the single digit countdown begins!

Well...I knew I wasn't going to do as well this weigh in because I ate out weigh to much....but...I lost 3.8 pounds!  That is 16.8 pounds in three weeks and I feel great!

And the buffet is officially closed
I had a really good weekend and feel like I am back on the paleo bandwagon 100%.  We got up early this morning and started the day with a trip to Lowes to begin working on our vegetable garden.  We have one every year but are mostly disappointed because birds, squirrels and other animals treat it like their very own buffet and eat everything as it ripens.  I am VERY proud to say that I came up with a plan (after extensive online research) and we implemented it today!  Soo...tomatoes (all except for one plant I still need to get), peppers, summer squash, zucchini and onions are planted!  Herbs were planted last weekend.

Jasons vs my fro yo/non fro yo
After all that excitement, we hosed off the kids ( we watered the plants, and headed to finish our errands for the weekend.  The afternoon ended with a trip to the new frozen yogurt shop.  Now any type of ice cream or frozen yogurt is pretty much my favorite food....I knew this would be a tough one.  But I also knew it was time to face we took the kids to a new place not far from our house.  it is all self serve where there are many different kinds of yogurt and toppings and you help yourself and then pay by the ounce.  Abby had strawberry, Luke had chocolate, Jason had a little of each kind, and they all chose some delicious toppings..  I actually think this was better than going to a place that serves you because I made a little fruit salad with some of their (unsweetened) toppings and it was quite delicious - blackberries, strawberries, mango, banana...I would be lying if I said that I didn't want some of their pistachio or mango frozen yogurt but I still felt like I was having a treat.

Ooh..sooo good!
After that we came home, cleaned the house, gave the kids baths and had dinner.  Now this is the type of dinner that makes me feel like I am not dieting at all...grilled steaks with delicious asparagus.  You don't get much better than that.  I cooked two small steaks to bring to work for me and Kelly P.  Just when I was about to confirm how she wanted it cooked, she called me to tell me that she made some other Paleo treats (including a spinach with mustard and garlic that I cannot wait to try) for the week.  I have a feeling that this week - my last full week of my 30 day commitment is going to be good!!

My knee is still bothering me - it is swollen and aches and I have been putting ice on it off and on all weekend.  It is soo bad that I bought a PVC pipe to try to roll out my calf like Catherine taught at Geaux Crossfit.  Speaking of, I am so excited to go back to the gym tomorrow.  That sounds so crazy I know...but by Sunday I am ready to see what kind of crazy workout they have in store for me there!! long week three - I cannot believe I am down to the single digit countdown!  Nine days to go!!!
