So I think I made it through Easter relatively well. To be honest, this was probably my best Holiday as far as food goes in the past year. Usually I go into a holiday weekend with that "Oh, it;s the Holidays, It's only Easter/Halloween/Christmas/Thanksgiving once a year, may as well live it up!" attitude. This Easter, my perspective was a little different. Although I must be honest with you ladies, I did go over my 35 flex points. But for the most part, I made good choices and got in tons of exercise. I decided that since I have had such a hard time controlling my food intake on the weekends, I would focus mainly on working out. I had 4 days off from work and I managed to get in over 60 mins on 3 of those 4 days of good ol Billy Blanks and his Tae Bo crew. I got up early every morning (except Sunday) and kicked some serious butt for over an hour each morning. So last week was probably my best week as far as exercise goes. I worked out everyday from Mon-Saturday and took Sunday off. I found that it did impact my food choices throughout the day too. I kept thinking, well if I eat that ice cream and cake....that 65 mins of Billy time this morning will be for nothing!
This weekend is going to be a rough one. I have a Potluck/Fantastia party to go to on Friday night at a friends house. This should be relatively ok since I've decided to stay away from the wine that night and take my own car. BUT there will be tons of yummy food there so I might just eat a super light supper so that I can try a few things there. Or I might bring a veggie tray as my potluck dish so that I can graze on that as the night goes. My main plan though is to find a seat that is no where near the snack table.
Saturday I'm planning a Stagette party for a friend of mine who is getting married next month. Any ideas for this ladies? Basically the Theme is going to be Black & White (since those are the colors of the wedding) everyone is wearing black except of course the bride who is wearing white. I told everyone to bring a black shirt/tank/t-shirt so that we can use iron ons. I think you can get the ones that you basically can print anything on them through your printer and then they iron on the t-shirt. I'm hoping to make those up this week but I'm looking for fun/cute/sexy phrases to put on the shirts...any ideas?? Amy, Angie....I know you ladies are going through (or just went through) the whole wedding thing right now...any awesome ideas for the stagette? What was the funnest/craziest stagette you've been to?
So my plan for Saturday is to get up early and meet up with Billy yet again for another 65 mins of punching, kicking and all over Tae Bo-ing. This will probably help me stay good on Saturday night!
How are you ladies making out this week?
