Let me preface this post by explaining that I fell off the wagon hardcore yesterday. It had absolutely nothing to do with candy, but rather a reuniting of old friends with bad habits. We have out of town guests this weekend and through the week, and man do they (and we, or more specifically I) love to eat! In fact, when they used to live here, that's all we did. So, it's quite natural that's what we would do when they visit.
I opted to give myself somewhat of a "reasonable free pass" yesterday to get the bad stuff out of the way and continue on my healthy path through the week. The Free Pass did not include not tracking, so I did, and yesterday I consumed 59.5 points. I get 21 in a day. Lucky me for having most of my weekly points allowance (35, I had 28) and 15 APs in the bank. So Kiddos, I'm not in the red for the week, but I will have to be very strict with my food for the remainder of their visit, and also REALLY pick up the pace at the gym this week.
ON TO THE PHOTOS!
So, yesterday was the Monster Dash 5k here in Minneapolis. It's an annual run that includes a Half-Marathon, a 10 mile, and a 5k. Apparently the 5k is looked upon as more of a fun run, but it wasn't that fun. I'm glad I ran, but I made bad time because of the ridiculous crowd of people.
Here is Jessica crossing her first "official" finish line!!! She made amazing time despite the crowd! SO INCREDIBLY PROUD!
I rolled up about 4 minutes later and we celebrated the end of the craziness.So, Yesterday was also Halloween. Here are obligatory costume photos.
And there's me as the Bearded Lady and Justin as a Ventriloquist's Dummy.
To be fair, for yesterday's fiasco, I didn't touch a single piece of candy. Not one. I was offered many. So there must be some credit given for that. I've got a plan for today to get me 100% back on track [which is good, because I don't have a lot of leeway with points now] and I'm going to take the dog for a big walk while everyone is still sleeping.
How did your Halloween go?
