If It's Too Loud... You're Too Old

Happy Day after Mother's Day hope you all had a wonderful one!
I'm still recovering myself. 
 Mother's Day was actually very restful, all I did was do some grocery shopping, some food prep for the week, and snuggled on the couch with DQ.
I was still recovering from my Mother's Day with TaTa that we celebrated on Saturday.
  We went to Wango Tango and was sooo much fun. 
 I will admit I'm kinda a concert whore.  I love all types of music so I will go to any show.
It was pretty cool because I actually took TaTa to her first concert when she was 6 (Dixie Chicks see told ya all kinds of music) and it has, over the years become our thing. I also took her to her first Wango Tango about 10 years ago  and now here we are drinking beers at one.  Besides the beer and one cocktail we were really good. We did a workout in the morning and we made sure to eat a  healthy lunch on the way.  I also brought my new favorite snack

 But  Gawd I have gotten old.  I sent this text to Carrie about 1/3 of the way into the night.

Here is a little taste of our night!  I may be old but I love dance music (and Calvin Harris and ZEDD were both there) so I got a great work out in dancing and jumping all around. My fitbit tracked over 20.000 steps! 

Then towards the end of the night TaTa's favorite came on Ed Sheeran and some people who were leaving early asked if it was just the two of us when I told them yes they gave us their 3rd row floor seat tickets.

TOTALLY AWESOME!! who ever you were THANK YOU!!
You made my daughter one happy girl :)

Oh and I hit all my goals for the week:
2 Body Pump Classes
one weight on my own (done at the park w/TaTa and our own body weight) 
and 3 miles done

This week will be the same for lifting
 5 miles run/walk/elliptical
also I want to keep my macronutrients 40/30/30
(I'll explain this on Wednesday but basically I want to stay 40% carbs, 30% Protein and 30% fat)
in my daily diet

Also you should go check out these lovely ladies
from the Motivational Monday Team and their awesome link-up :) And some Marvolus Monday links here.

  1. Oh wow, sounds like a wonderful day and I love Ed Sheeran too! Love that you guys do that together! What a great Mother's Day present! Great job this week!

    1. Isn't he the best! I guess I'm pretty lucky my daughter thinks I'm the "cool" mom :)

  2. Wow! way to spend mother's day!! BTW, how do you keep tab of macro-nutrients? you calculate it even before eating?

    1. I know right! yes for the most part I know what I'll be eating for the day/week so I input it into myfitnesspal, then get an estimate off the pie chart. (I'm just starting so I'll see how that works for now.)

  3. I'm just NOT a concert person ... I don't know if you could pay me to go face the crowds. But great job on the Fitbit steps. Love how the Fitbit can track things that aren't really a "workout" but where the steps do add up! Thanks for linking up with Motivation Monday! :)

    1. Thanks Jen my hubs is the same way. He will go if I beg but luckily Tat and I like the same music so I always have a partner in crime :)

  4. I hear you on the getting older and not enjoying the loudness of concerts...I also feel the same way when my hubby wants to watch movies or tv on surround sound lol.

    1. My hubby does that same thing and I'm always telling him to turn it down or I shut his man cave door lol.
