Halloween Pics

Week is going pretty well so far.  Been cooking at home a lot more and haven't bought lunch all week.  This is a big accomplishment.  To be honest, I don't think it's so much the healthful side of cooking at home that motivates me right now so much as the $$ factor.  Money is very very tight and with the holidays coming, it's just going to be worse so we're trying to batten down the hatches and reign in some of the spending.  So far, so good.  I haven't been on the scale since Monday.  No, I'm not avoiding it...just haven't thought to do it in the morning.  My thought is to only weigh once a week so I don't go crazy with the daily fluctuations.  That seems to be working pretty well so far.  I've gotten 2 compliments on "new" shirts from a lady at work in the past couple weeks.  I find this funny since neither shirt was new.  One I had stopped wearing about a year ago because it didn't cover my GINORMOUS belly.  It feels more comfortable now and I admit it has a slimming effect.  The second shirt, however, I wear at least once a month.  It's a staple in my wardrobe so it cracks me up that I got a compliment on it from a lady who sits right next to me every. single. day.  Alright...so without further ado...Halloween pics.  No...don't have any of me.  I was the camera lady.  No, I'm not hiding from the camera but I didn't dress up this year and I was so busy getting the kids lookin' good that I just didn't think to take one of myself.  Will get one of those posted soon.  So time to brag about my kiddos and how cute they are. 












So there they are.  My crew.  I'm very proud to say I haven't partook (is that a word?) in any of the Halloween candy.  Honestly, not even tempted by it.  I did have a full size crunch bar the other day but that's just because I wanted one..wasn't part of the Halloween stash.  I have our first parent/teacher conference at Maddie's school tonight.  Hope they tell me wonderful things.  Otherwise, not a whole not new around here.  My big walk is now just one week from tomorrow!  Getting really nervous as to if I'll be able to do it but I know it'll be a great experience and painful all at the same time.  On the heel front, it's feeling much better, thank goodness, so hopefully that won't play into the equation at all.

Alrighty...that's all I got today.  Tomorrow I'll vent about the removal of Styrofoam cups from my office.  Stay tuned...

weighing once a week is much better for your sanity. The walk you are doing is going to do all kinds of good for your attitude too...make sure you take the camera with you manda, 'cos it sounds like it will be one of those occasions when you really don't wanna forget it. Congratulations on the compliments - always a welcome boost. Keep us posted on the walk. Best of luck.
