Baby Shower/Lots of Coffee/Little Cheating

Hi guys! Sorry I have not done much commenting this weekend- it has been a busy one! Both today and yesterday, I got up at 3 am to catch planes! Phew....I am ready for bed. Below are some pics from my sisters baby shower and a summary of my MOSTLY clean eating! I did cheat and had a little cake at my sisters shower, I felt I had to help celebrate the baby/thought it looked yummy ;).

The tables (pink rose centerpieces, a little "Its a girl confetti" favors- little babies feet soap and candy- york peppermint patties and pink Hershey's kisses that say "Its a girl!")


The gift table:

My preggers sister:
Preggers & Me:
The Preggers Family:
Preggers & To be Grammy (aka my mama)
Cake (homemade by one of the guests):

The food- course 1 salads (I ate mine and my cousin's ;))
Pasta course (not pictured, I didn't eat any but heard it was awesome)
Main course (choice of chicken, fish, pork...I got the chicken and scrapped off the sauce and breading and had only a few bites, I ate all my veggies):
The Cake (aka my cheat, I split this with my Aunt):

My mom's side of the family (back row: My Grandma, Me, My mom, Sister, Aunt, front row: Cousin, Aunt, Aunt):

The shower went SO well! My sister got lots of awesome stuff! Can't wait to meet the new baby girl :)
Here is a quick summary of my weekend and eats.
Saturday:
  • Up at 3 am, took 2 planes to get to Connecticut. On the way, I ate two apples and had a cappuccino with skim milk and a little sugar
  • Lunch at shower
  • Dinner out- large house salad with olive oil and vinegar and a side of broccoli)
  • Dessert-fruit
Sunday:
  • Up at 3 am, took 2 planes to get back to South Carolina. On the way I had (shockingly) two apples.
  • When I got home, I had a few slices of homemade wheat bread and then went for an awesome 6 mile run. I also did yesterday's (2 sets of lunges, 2 sets of squats) and today's (3 sets of planks) activities for the Oh She Glows Bikini Body Boot Camp.
  • Lunch was a Jay Robb Egg White protein shake with 1 cup 1% milk, 1 banana.
  • Next, I went food shopping and had some coffee with skim milk.
  • Snack was grapes and a few other nibbles of veggies while baking/cooking (another loaf of Whole Wheat bread, Granola, Snack bars for Josh, hard boiled eggs for the week)
  • Tons of Laundry
  • Frank bath (picture to come)
  • Out to dinner with Josh and his friend Jeremy (who is in visiting from PA). We went to East Bay Deli and I got the salad bar (mixed greens, broccoli, carrots, chickpeas, hard boiled egg whites, mixed fruit, baby corn, olive oil, vinegar)

Ok, my eyes are closing :) I promise to do more commenting tomorrow! How was your weekend?
