Weekend Recap and Weigh In

I worked on Saturday, so there is nothing interesting to report about it, but our Sunday was a lot of fun.  We went down to Surfside and took a walk on the beach.

This is why I love living near the coast.  The temperature was in the 70s in the morning and there was a nice breeze.  We had to watch our step since there were jellyfish everywhere.  Yuck.  We did get to see a squished one that had been run over by a truck.  I didn't take a picture of it because I didn't think you would want me to gross you out.  You are welcome.

We did see a very cute baby seagull, he is in the center of this picture...he was very fast and hard to photograph.  We picked up a few shells and discussed the joys of living in the south and being able to walk barefoot on the beach in mid-November.

I love the beach.

We had lunch on the beach at Pirate's Alley Cafe. I had a bacon cheeseburger because I had the points and that's what I wanted.  It was good.

Pirate's Alley also had a cat.  We called him beach kitten and it was fun to watch him chase sand crabs.

He was very sweet.

After lunch we went from Surfside to The Strand in Galveston to visit La King's Confectionery. I napped on the way unlike me, I know.  La King's is a fabulous candy store that Daniel's grandmother used to take him and his sister to when they were kids.  They would always have white chocolate.

I think La King's feels a little like stepping back in time with their soda fountains and homemade ice cream.  We had a scoop of ice cream and then got Daniel a little white chocolate and me a couple of chocolate covered pretzels for later.

So much candy.

And now for the weigh in...

Previously: -2.8
This week: -5.1
Total:          -7.9

Yay!  Proof that if you track your points and eat smart you can still have bacon cheeseburgers in your life.  In other weight watchers weight watchers online weight tracker says I am down 8.6 pounds from the start, so I am guessing that somewhere along the way in the blog I have done some bad math.  I will go with the weight watchers total loss since they have graphs and can do math.

New Total:   -8.6

Deal?  Deal.  Okay, awesome.

The pen color today will be lavender.

Happy Monday, I hope it goes by quickly for everyone.
