So I've decided to post my goals a little out of order for Sunday because the story of my day just wouldn't flow right with how I've been listing them :-)
We have been tubing from Palace Outfitters in Mays Landing every August for the last 4 years. It's always a great day and usually once someone joins us they come back every year following. It's really great to have an event everyone looks forward to! We usually try to go towards the end of the month as a goodbye to summer but between our vacation and other responsibilities this month there wasn't any other time to fit it in. Of course the weather report was saying 60% then 85% then 95% chance of thunderstorms! I called the company and they stated that everyone signs a waiver before getting on the river and they didn't have any intentions of closing for the day so Joe and I decided to give it a shot.
3. Complete 1250 fitness minutes: After our realization on Saturday night that the Custard Hut wasn't quite as far away as we thought we now knew of a lot more places within reach. We started our day with a run over to the bagel shop. It was just under 2.5 miles round trip but it was a tough run. It was so hot and humid outside! I was absolutely dripping by the time we got home.
5. At least 20 days with 30 minutes of house work: I didn't do any cleaning because we spent the entire afternoon on the river. 3 days total. I'm so happy I didn't decide to cancel the trip because we didn't see one raindrop or hear one crack on thunder the entire day! Although the forecast did scare off a few of our attendees. Going into the weekend I had 22 people coming but by the time we hit the river we were down to 15.
There were water gun fights...
lots of goofing around...
and plenty of drinks...
On last years trip I drank almost 1200 calories worth of twisted tea so this year I came prepared. I made myself a cocktail consisting of 3 parts whipped cream vodka, 3 parts Trop 50 & 6 parts club soda = 218 calories for the whole thing!
1. 15 Spend Free Days: Once we got out of the river & dried off a little we headed to the chinese buffet for dinner. I took care of the tab for Joe and myself, all $26 of it! 4 days total.
I would like to preface this by saying that I did not eat everything on these plates. I did eat more then my fair share but I usually left about 1/3 of what I had taken because it wasn't as tasty as I'd hoped.
The sushi was mediocre but then what do I expect for $10 a person. I'm always a fan of crab meat & cream cheese wontons though. There's also a little chicken with broccoli and salt & pepper shrimp mixed in there.
The pizza was actually very good as was the macaroni & cheese but I guess that's not too hard to mess up. And for dessert the only items worth eating were the fried dough (shocker), vanilla cake, banana pudding, chocolate cake and a little bit of mint chip ice cream. That means I passed on 4 whole items on that plate!
2. At least 20 days with a 750+ calorie burn:Breakfast: whole wheat everything bagel w/low fat lox cream cheese = 390 calories
