Found figs!

*singsongy*  Guess what Iiiiiiii fooooooound?

Figs

I found them at Fresh Market across town, but then had to stop at Publix on the way home, and lo and behold, they had also gotten some in.  It figures.

I channeled the original concept of my pizza into a snack – I cut the figs in half, popped a chunk of goat cheese into each, draped some prosciutto on top, then drizzled honey over it

I can’t even describe the combination of flavors…it was amazing!

I’ve been having a pretty crappy week, haven’t been to the gym, haven’t run or biked, but I’ve been focusing on meals that look like this:

chicken and zucchini

Protein + veggies.  I’m pretty proud of myself for making good eating decisions even while going through a stressful situation.

Oh, and at my weigh-in on Wednesday, I was down 6.5lbs from the previous appointment!  I lost the weight I gained last month and then some!

Tonight, I’m throwing my BFF Catherine’s bachelorette party which I’m totally nervous about.  I’m not a huge “go out to bars” person and have never been to a traditional bachelorette party, so I hope it all goes off without a hitch, an injury, or an arrest.  Tomorrow I’m meeting up with some friends at Columbia’s Greek festival which I’ve never been to – I’m really excited about it and hopefully will at least eat some awesome food and get some good pictures!

Got any good bachelorette party ideas or tips?  I’m scared, y’all.
