Wedding festivities involve a lot of food...

Saturday night was my friend Leah's bachelorette party at my house. We had LOTS of food - and none of it was healthy. There was supposed to be a veggie plate and I was planning to huddle around it, but it apparently was forgotten, so I did my best to consume the apples and protein (okay, so they were meatballs and pigs in a blanket...but my options were limited) and did my best to steer clear of the cake balls and penis shaped sugar cookies that I baked...but yeah, it was inevitable that I was going to overindulge a bit.

And boy did I overindulge! Just not really with food. Alcohol has a bunch o' calories - and unfortunately, it can also make you puke...which I guess is good for the calorie intake? Maybe? Probably not.

On the bright side, I'm down to 202.8 - just 2.9 lbs to lose if I want to make my under 200 lbs by Halloween goal! I CAN DO IT! I woke my husband up this morning telling him the good news - he didn't seem excited about it, but I don't think I'm overly excited to be woken up either. Clothes I haven't worn in a long time are fitting and it's SUCH a good feeling!

Tuesday night I ran for the first time in about 5 days - yikes. It was rough! I need to come up with a schedule, but my life is never scheduled, so how do I make sure I get home and have time to run!?


  1. Ohhh, I have such a weakness for appetizers. They're my favorite. Deviled eggs, pigs in a blanket, samosas, and oh, I really want to try whatever these cake balls are that you speak of. Damn gurl.

    Congrats on your progress! I hear you on the workout scheduling issues--I have an insane schedule and it's really hard to fit everything in. I try to wake up early and do my workouts before work to make sure that they actually happen. Yes, the early alarm time sucks (really, really sucks), but you do get used to it. That said, I know you and I know how you sleep. Experiment and find what works for you!

    PS--Congrats as well on the 25 followers! You have already surpassed me! Keep it up, LDYGTR.

  2. Do you have an hour for lunch? Is there a shower at work? Maybe you could run during your lunch, you'd time to squeeze in a run, shower and eat your lunch. I know a few people who do this somedays.

    Congratulations on the success, you are so close to your goal, just keep pushing!
