Nashville Trip

I am not very creative with my post titles but they are pretty informative. :)

This past weekend Dave and I went to Nashville. In February I signed up for the Rock N Roll Half Marathon. My doctor still hadn't cleared me to run though, so Dave ran for me. We had a great weekend. Friday we got up there and went to the Expo. It was HUGE! After getting his bib, shirt, etc. we had dinner at The Old Spaghetti Factory.

Saturday we were up bright and early. We parked in the middle of downtown and headed for the start line. Dave and 30,000 of his closest friends started running at 7:00am. Once he took off I headed for the finish line at LP Field. It was difficult to find him because he didn't have a cell phone and he was a little slower than he thought due to calf cramps but we finally met up in the family reunion area after he finished with a time of 2:20. I have pictures on my camera but I can't find the cord to hook it to my computer. If I ever find it, I will update this post. After the race we went back to hotel and napped. Around 1:30 we dragged ourselves out of the hotel and headed for the outlet mall and Opryland Hotel. That night we had dinner at Margaritaville and then went across the street to listen to a band and have a few beers.

On Sunday we stopped in the cute town of Franklin on the way home. We ate at 55 South. OMG. It was soooo good. We had donuts to start.

I shouldn't even tell you what was in my entree. It's called The Carlos and when the waitress brought it to the table she sat it in front of Dave because guys usually order it. :) In my defense, I didn't eat the whole thing. But it was amazing!

After brunch we roamed the cute downtown area. There was a main street festival going on. I bought a fabulous Father's Day present and a cute necklace for myself.

Weight Loss - End of week 5

My weigh in this morning was 136.5! I am down 9 pounds in the first five weeks. I really really want to be at 135 by my birthday on Tuesday and if I am really focused I can probably do it. I am very happy with this week's two pound loss especially since I ate horrible in Nashville.

Original weight: 145.5
Today's weight: 136.5
Goal weight: 120
