You're not wearing WW at all??? I wish I had an adult party to go to...have fun!

187.0 Still moving in the right direction...

I went for a run today, made it twice around the track before my legs started throbbing again I had to limp home. Now I can barely walk and I'll likely have to take a break for the rest of the week. Ugh. I think it may have to do with the cold weather, like maybe I'm not warming up/stretching enough? It feels like I'm cramped up from my ankle to my behind. I feel better after a hot shower, but still feel bruised through my whole calf/shin with a sharp pain behind my shin bone when I walk. If it doesn't get better I'm going to have to see my doctor.

On the plus side, I found a workout on demand that really works your muscles. It does about 10 min each legs, arms & abs. All strength training, and much less impact than the shred. I felt really good when I finished it yesterday, I was shaking and tired, but not sore. I think it's a keeper for my off days!

I'm so excited to take the kids out now that we all have costumes, I just have to work up the nerve to show off my really pink legs! lol

187.2 (+.2)

I'm okay with this, ready to face the unending candy that comes with halloween. I'm not going to say I won't have any, but I vow to have control. We have a kids party at my cousin's on Sat, so that will be my trial run. lol

Today's plan- strength training, <30 net carbs, 100+ oz water.

Have a great day!

OMG, I think Halloween is getting to me. As I was sitting here (all alone, kids are sleeping, dh is at work), I kept hearing a hissing sound from the kitchen. Really wierd. So I get up to check it out and it stops. But then starts again once I'm sitting again. So this time, I creep into the kitchen, broom in hand (don't ask what I was gonna use it for, lol). Turns out it was just a bit of coffee on the bottom of the pot hissing in the coffee maker. lol

186.30
I'm determined to get back to my low of 185.80 by monday.

Yeah Amber, I laid off the excercise for almost a whole month, getting back into it was horrible. I remember my dance teacher used to give us crap for not properly warming up before class in the cold months, I guess we've learned why I feel really good this morning, so I think I'll warm up with some jumping jacks or something then go for a short run before dh goes to work. Let me know how your workout goes!

Go Ceecee!!!

I went for a 5k run/walk. It's a beautiful day, not as cold as it has been, and I did much better than last time though as soon as I stopped running everything tightened right up.

Happy Halloween!

185.10 today!

Had a bit of a scare last night - my 2 yr old fell & hit his head on our fireplace. I spent the afternoon/evening in ER so they could staple it back together. Thankfully, he's fine now, and what a little toughie! He didn't even flinch when they stapled it. Then, they wrapped his head in bandages until he looked like a little mummy.

I was happy with my costume too. It's amazing what you can find in my closet! Would you believe DH wore his mohawk to WORK today??? I hope they don't fire him! LOL

I'm pretty sure the date is the same everywhere. My fam has a huge party Christmas Eve & we stay up all night singing carols & exchanging gifts. It's the best night of the year by far

Yeah, that's my Daddy My mom was there too, but stayed inside with the baby (my neice-the one in the flower costume). They're really young, married at 19 and had me at 20!

Ceecee: I think thanksgiving is different b/c it's a nationality thing, but all the other holidays are religious so they're the same everywhere. I really don't know why they would make thanksgiving different though. It's the same thing, just different day.

Bobby has been pretty good he isnt attacking the candy too bad yet, I have to watch him, and I told him it has to be moved, I see all those peanut M&M staring at me, I ate 2 tootsie pops cause my throat was sore, LOL I couldnt even taste them that was the bad part!

Thanks Amber, no the kids haven't been bad with the candy. They really didn't get too much.

I went for a short run/walk yesterday. I've been fighting a cold for over a week now and I just wasn't feeling up to a full run, but it was too gorgeous of a day to waste.

Our tv kicked the bucket last night We broke out the old 13" for today but we'll have to buy a new one, prob tonight. It was an old analog, so it was due to be replaced anyway....we were just hoping to wait till after xmas. Thank God dh has been working so much overtime!

After a full day of shopping, we finally got one! Yay! I feel like we were the last people on earth still watching analog! LOL We actually had it picked out online last night. DH picked it up on his way home from work and I shopped all day for a stand. Then it took dh all evening to take down the old stand & set up all the devices but it was done in time for Greys Anatomy so I was happy.
It makes me kinda sad that we can't live one stinking day without tv when there are so many people who are starving and tv would be the least of their concerns.

I didn't get to weigh today, but I *think* I'm down a bit. My only digital scale is on my wii and it wasn't connected today, but my bathroom scale (the really inaccurate one) read about 182 so here's hoping...

183.4 (-0.7)
Yay!!!! Maybe I'm back to losing steadily! Maybe another 11.4 is possible before my bday.

I splurged last night and bought a pair of boots last night. I've wanted a pair of mid-calf or knee high black boots for a loooong time but have never found any that fit. Even the wide calf ones are too baggy on the bottom and still too tight on top. Even all my weight loss hasn't helped. I tried on a ton at walmart and found a pair that are okay if I scrunch them down. They still don't fit right, but I have a ton of dresses & skirts that I can't wear in the colder weather without some kind of boots/booties.

It's getting really hard to find time to run lately with the shorter days. I know it will only get worse after daylight savings time. I may have to start going in the dark at the track I'm already going through sun withdrawals! lol

OMG what is with the baggy ankle boots, I hate that!!!! I got a pair at Old Navy on line and returned them, they were so loose at the ankles, finding boots to fit is tough, as you know I am so excited to fit in regular boots, well turns out the lady at work her daughter is 24 and a big girl she was saying how she cant find boots, I said OMG I have like 5 pair I will bring in, so now I dont feel bad buying new ones since I am giving the old ones away, what are the odds she wears an 11 too, LOL I am loving the purple suede ones I got yesterday!!! I love purple!!!

Lucky girl, getting all those boots!
I think a lot of my problem is that I'm so short they just fit wrong. Like my calf muscle sticks out before the boot widens. I forgot to mention, when I bought my boots I tried on some pants - size 12!!! (And a regular 12, not an old navy 12 lol) I didn't buy them only b/c my bday is coming up soon and I keep telling dh all I want is clothes that fit lol. I'd really like him to take me shopping state-side so I can hit up Dots.

I'm back to my cold weather struggles. Every sunday we go for dinner at my mom & dad's -it's wonderful- except that it's always meat, potatoes, & corn. Last night I asked if I could make a salad, of course it was fine, but everybody was like, feeling sorry for me because I was only eating salad & meat! I was like, you don't get it - this is how I eat. I enjoy this! I hate drawing attention like that but I just can't eat that much starch. Plus, I had pizza the night before simply because I didn't want to be rude and not eat.

So now, thanks in part to Sat's pizza, I'm back up to 186.1 (+2.7!) Serves me right, I guess. I really need to get a new scale - my wii is just a PIA to weigh on, and I don't think it's as accurate as it should be.
