So, last week was a good week all in all. I finally got the scale moving again and lost 2 lbs, which felt so great! I couldn't have asked for a better number considering the weekend that I had. Yesterday was Dan's birthday and on Friday he received a Gift Card from his brother for Asiate, which is a restaurant located in the Mandarin Oriental Hotel here in NYC. It has amazing views of Central Park and the city.
This is a very small part of their Wine Wall - it is amazing!
This is where he and his wife stay when they are in town We decided to use it Saturday. We did the tasting menu with the wine pairing and it was very good. It was 7 courses, I was completely stuffed by the end! I also had Champagne to toast Dan's birthday, of course not realizing that the first course was paired with a Sparkling Wine! I will say that at the end of the night when I was lying in bed I felt so weird, not sure if it was from the carbonation or not. I drank about half of the Champagne and a little less than half of the Sparkling Wine. This was deffinatly not the best tasting menu that we have had, it is a toss up between...

I completed Week 3 of C25K Saturday morning. This morning I started Week 4 and was pleasantly shocked - I actually enjoyed running the first set (Run 3 minutes, Walk 1.5 minutes, Run 5 minutes)! Well, I didn't really enjoy the actual running when I got to the 5 minute run, but I was really impressed with my improvement. Last week I felt like the 3 minute run was really difficult and today it wasn't! This is the farthest I have gone with this program and I feel fantastic!
