Well, last Tuesday there was a choir party... so no dancing there, or booze, but I ate a little too much... not a huge amount though... so that wasn't too bad.
Now Thursday? I had a dinner party at our place with three of our friends. Did well there too... Chicken, eggplant parmesan and pasta (I had a half-cup of rice), but there were also crackers and cheese. And my downfall... one of my friends brought ice cream,
which many of you know I can't resist. So I didn't, and I was over again, by more this time.
Saturday, the big party of the year... Hubby's office party, and no calorie counting! I must've eaten a ton... peanuts and chocolate. The dinner was prime rib, ribs and Chinese food - It wasn't a ton of each one - more like buffet servings... but all together! And of course 5 big glasses of wine!
Here are some photos...
Here's me and DH ...
Now, that dress is 15 years old at least...It's a bit big in the top now, but it was too small 2 years ago.
Here's my new boots that I bought last week...
Aren't they awesome?
Now the tough part... of course, I LOVE to dance, and it isn't dancing if you aren't flailing all around the dance floor!! And don't forget my terrible balance and "stupid walk." Add in 5 BIG glasses of wine and you have a recipe for disaster!!
I fell of course... right on my butt, in that short skirt... At least I was wearing underwear
I REALLY hurt my back!! and I got a huge bruise and a scrape on my elbow. And I was so disappointed with myself... This might sound silly, but I have so much energy now, and I was having so much fun - then my stupid balance has to interfere!! I feel betrayed by my stupid body!!
Now the true payment... Weighed this morning... ashamed to see 136!! I haven't been that high in more than 6 months!! I can't believe it's all sodium... it's been 2 days! So I am eating between 1200 and 1600 for a bit to see what happens. I have no more "cheat meals" till Christmas.
Couldn't exercise yesterday, but I did Curves today. It hurt, but I had to do it. I don't recover quickly from muscle pulls, bruises etc. anymore and it'll be at least a week. Well, I can't go that long without exercise. So....suck it up!! You play - you pay!!
