Let's see...before I left, I was heading to Louisville for HullabaLOU music festival in Louisville, KY on July 23 and 24...What a huge success this was! On Friday, we ventured to Churchill Downs a little early and took all of the stages in and then saw part of performance from Train and then Dierks Bentley and Bon Jovi on the main stage. On the smaller stages we saw Blood, Sweat and Tears, B52s, and Gloriana. We saw part of the televised broadcast of Gladys Knight (no Pips, though!)...they had cameras at every stage showing it on the closed-circuit screens throughout the venue. Bon Jovi was awesome--and I learned from people around us that they had not been to Louisville in over 20 years! I guess that I am spoiled living in Atlanta, as most big acts flow through here at least once a year...Bon Jovi, included. I had just seen them in April at Phillips Arena which was awesome...but this crowd was totally loving Jon and the gang! The highlight of Friday's show was when Dierks Bentley shared the stage with Bon Jovi for one of the encores...completely awesome!!! Saturday, due to the heat, we didn't venture out nearly as early (as I didn't really know many of the bands on the smaller stages). We waited until about 4p and headed to the racetrack. On the mainstage, we saw Sara Evans, Jason Aldean (fellow Georgian) and Kenny Chesney. We had some great people sitting around us who totally loved the concerts.
Not much to report about last week...it's so uneventful that I can't even remember anything about it. Oh yeah... I did have to report a gain in the weight loss department. I am so saddened by that--but in this life, I just have to take the good with the bad...and know that hopefully it will all net out to a loss (eventually).
Over the past weekend, Wonderful Husband and I went to see Korn and Rob Zombie (and a lot of other "different" type music from what my preferences are). Okay--stop laughing...I am pretty sure that I looked like someone who totally didn't belong there...especially with the "Zombies" walking around...it was crazy! However, the music was okay. My husband did tell me that he thought that I would like Rob Zombie...but didn't think that I care too much for Korn. (Obviously my music tastes are quite eclectic, if you look at my Zune, you will see that...there's country, metal, rock, pop, and soon there will be some Zombie!!!). I think that it will be some good workout music. Wonderful Husband loved the show...and he doesn't say that a lot about concerts--heck, he doesn't go to many shows (unlike me...I am a concert junkie! Am heading to see Sugarland on Thursday night!).
My food is under control this week...and I have been drinking water like nobody's business. I tend to drink 96 oz. of H2O while at work (so I spend a lot of time traveling back and forth to the potty...but this is extra activity...LOL!...and allows me to refill the water bottle on the way back to my desk. I am hopeful that I will show a loss this week...
Speaking of losses...I did join this challenge. Hopefully the month of August will be what I need to get me back on track.
