Day 249 - 153.6 Halloween Pics

80s Night and Fred & Wilma

We had a lot of fun at our parties, and the costume crisis with Wilma wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. The Assets undies helped tame my behind a lot, and I found some dress tape at Target to tape my bra down on the sleeveless side. The wig I found on Saturday for Wilma was perfect, and several people (that I hadn't met before the party) thought it was my real hair, so it was a really good wig (for the low low price of $19.99). All in all, I was actually pretty pleased with how I looked both nights and was comfortable in my skin and enjoyed myself thoroughly (but really cold as Wilma--we took off our flip flops and went barefoot at the party...brrrr! It was kind of gross, actually, since I could feel every "party foul" drink spillage on the carpet and tile).

We had fun, but we were exhausted yesterday. Two late nights in a row for us old fogies is enough to do us in. Friday night we got in at 1:30 a.m., and Saturday it was midnight. Thankfully the kids slept unbelievably late Saturday morning (8 a.m.!) and we were up Sunday at 7, so it could have been worse, but I am not a late night person anymore.

Friday afternoon I got in my longest run yet-- 6.3 miles in 69 minutes. It was amazing to hit mile 4 and finally hit a groove. I had planned on running 5, but felt so good I made another lap around the neighborhood. The weather was perfect, and I really could have kept going another mile or so if it wasn't for needing to get home for the party.

Food was horrible all weekend. I don't know what it was--PMS or the tiredness or what, but I ate anything and everything. Thankfully it hasn't caught up with me yet, and I know a couple off days aren't going to kill me, just slow down my progress. It's no wonder everyone complains about the last 10 pounds. But my last 10 pounds aren't coming off right now because I'm not trying that hard.

I haven't read any more of Precision Nutrition, and won't be starting that this week. I probably will do a modified version of it anyway, since I'm still under LA Weight Loss officially and want to try to stick to their program somewhat. I don't mean to be so wishy washy, but I'm kind of in a funk, food-wise. I guess it's the time of year or my lackadaisical attitude or something. Who knows. I'm a mystery wrapped in an enigma.

Fun pictures!!

Laura, you really do look great.

6.3 miles is awesome. Way to go!

I know this is the time of year when it is so hard to stay the course. But I have said it before "maintaining is a victory in itself!"

Love your costumes! You are too cute. I'm glad you were able to get over the stress of the Betty costume, b/c you look great in it.

Marcy said...

Don't sweat the 10 pounds, you've done fab so far!! You'll get there when you get there, right ;-)

The pics look great! You make a good Wilma!

Lori said...

I love your costumes. You really look great as Wilma. (I love the necklace and thought of that new Geico commercial, lol)

It is a hard time of year and give yourself a break. You and your DH (he's cute too) deserved two nights out and have fun. Don't sweat the last 10 pounds. I'm just so happy that you've only got 10 pounds to lose.

The costumes are awesome and you look great! I'm working on my 80s costume for tomorrow.
