Halloween Prep

Tuesday, October 01, 2013

One of my friends is having a Halloween party this year. Originally I was thinking of doing Princess Leia because Iíve always wanted to dress up as her but with the costume and the shoes itís a bit over my price range. So Iím putting together a costume from my own wardrobe. I have this burgundy lacy sleeveless top that looks sort of Gothic if worn in the right outfit so Iím going to wear it with a black skirt and black boots. With the right makeup and accessories Iíll be the perfect vampire. This cuts cost down by more than half.

Hereís the deal though, the top is a little sung. Mostly it doesnít bother me but the guy I have my eye one will be there so I want to look good; looking good means losing some pounds so that the top goes from being snug to perfect. I want to dress to impress and for everyone one to know that big girls can be beautiful too.

Having an actual date I want to slim down by is new to me. Usually itís some arbitrary date that has no meaning, but this has meaning and purpose. I know that in a month I wonít lose a massive amount of weight, but I hope that it is just enough. This is a push I need because my eating has gotten out of hand this past month as we moved into a new building at work and things got a little crazy.

Today I signed up for Sparks 30 Day Fit Food Challenge. I wish I had known about it Friday before I did my grocery shopping for the week. Iíll do my best to keep my heating as clean as possible with the occasional non clean treat. Last night I worked out for the first time in a long time, though I could not make it through the whole 30 minute video.

Weíll see how this goes. My last challenge went bust a week in. Iím not very disciplined.  Some may say I donít want it enough, but I now that isnít true. I think itís just an attention thing. Iím A.D.D. so itís hard for me to stay focused on one thing for an extended period of time. Thatís why I focus more on changing my habits because once something is a habit I donít have to think about it anymore.
