Damn that was cold!

Ran with the dogs in the rain this morning and damn was it cold! Enough bitching. Time for the weekly weigh-in. I am at 182.4 again. I will take that. My weight had gone up about 2.5 pounds from last weekend (no more alcohol for me) so at least I lost that again. And last week had a big drop so I will continue on.

Tonight I have to work the Fall Fun Fest at school....for 3 friggin' hours. It is from 5:30 to 8:30. Which is annoying on many fronts. #1 - elementary kids are super spazzy and obnoxious at Halloween, #2 - I am exhausted from working with 6 year-olds all week, #3 - no one asked me if I wanted to do this, I was told to do it, #4 - I have a better party to go to (sorry for those of you with kids - teachers do enjoy them but we have our fill by Friday and want a break)

So after the festival I will be changing into my skanky Halloween costume and going to best bud's restaurant for their Halloween bash. And yes, I bought a skanky outfit. I will be an inappropriate version of Rainbow Brite. My husband even told me it was slutty. But it is still kinda cute. I was going to get a lady bug costume but I figured that next year I may be pregnant and need a big costume like that. Then I thought - to hell with it, this maybe the only year I am ever able to wear something skanky, so I will. I worked hard. I may be really testing the strength of the material but it does fit.

When I got big I always said I wish I could go back to my smaller self and tell her to live it up and wear sluttier clothes while she can. Well since I can't go back, I can tell myself that now. I am aware that 31 may be too old to dress this way for Halloween but I am telling myself it is okay because I am not a mom yet. But I have to say, if I have a decent bod after kids there is no telling what kind of costume decisions I will be making. If you've got it, rock it.

Ordered the P90X system this morning. We shall see how that goes. Now I am just looking to order the Polar heart rate monitor thing. Man there are so many models. I am so not sure which one to get. Also, do you have to wear a band around your chest with the watch? Do you wear it all day if you want to know your daily calorie burn? I need more exercise education I guess.

Hope you all rock the scale this week! I will try to update with Halloween pics this weekend. Try to stay away from that candy!

I agree & wish I had "rocked my body" a bit harder for the 5 minutes I was skinny at 21. Another good pregnant costume is an M&M, covers your belly and if your legs look good you can get away with cute leggings underneath.

Have a great weekend-I love my kids like crazy, but I have no clue how I would be if I was around kids all day everyday, I am sure you look forward to the quiet.

31 too old for a slutty halloween costume!? Outrageous nonsense! I completely agree with your later comment, if you've got it you should rock it!

Although I think there could be more satisfaction in going as something genuinely scary to terrify the kids, I think the costume sounds great! :-p

"If you got it, rock it."

Words to live by...

"If you got it, rock it" Damn strait! Especially if you worked hard to get it!

Looking forward to hearing how the P90X goes.

I made a promise to myself. The minute I hit goal weight, I am going out and buying a bandage dress in plum and wearingthe three inch heels, finding me some awesome lingerie and knocking my husband's socks off, i am 35 and figure I got about 10 good years left to work this thing.
