First off, I would like to apologize for not posting at all lately. I have been extremely busy with work and school and life in general. 😛 I’m sticking to my diet though. (Mostly.) I’m not eating as strictly as I would like, but I’m tracking all of my food and staying within my calorie allotment. As far as exercise goes, I haven’t been doing to good. I get quite a bit of physical activity in throughout my day. I’m pretty much on my feet from 9:30am until about 5pm, but that’s not that same as real exercise. I really need to get back into doing my C25K (still on Day 2 Week 5) and going to the gym every day.
I completely skipped posting my weigh-in last Sunday. I still weighed in though. And despite not even tracking my food everyday that week, I still didn’t gain any weight. So my weigh-in was the same as the week before, 222 lbs. I’m not calling this a plateau, since I haven’t been giving it a good effort.
This week my weigh in was better! Even though I haven’t completely gotten back into the swing of things, I lost 3.2 lbs! I weighed in at 218.8! I’m pretty excited about that; it’s great motivation to really give it my all this week!
This week is going to be a little different for me though. My husband left for Vegas today to film a tanning bed convention. He’ll be gone until late Wednesday. Today is also our 6 year wedding anniversary. It sucks that we didn’t get to spend it together, but we did celebrate yesterday. We went to Crowley’s Ridge State Park, which is about half an hour away and went hiking, had a picnic, and rented a paddleboat for an hour. It was a lot of fun.
This suspension bridge was pretty scary!! I feel like this photo shows some of my weight loss!
On the paddleboat!
Anyway, it’s going to be weird without him here.
Now on to the blog title: brrrrrraaaaaiiiiiiiiiinnnnnnnssssss!
I posted something a few weeks ago about looking forward to Memphis Zombie Walk and my costume last year! Well, it was on May 31st! My friends and I went as zombie Disney characters and we had a blast! We had an Ariel, Snow White, Pocahontas, Belle, Prince Charming, Prince Eric, Rapunzel, and then one friend that was just a zombie. Here are some pictures:
Zombie Prince Charming
Me, as Zombie Snow White. I made a severed dwarf’s head to carry, and I had a headless bird on my shoulder.

Us “attacking” some bystanders. We couldn’t walk more than a couple of feet without being stopped and asked for pictures!

More of Ariel’s scales!
Zombie Pocahontas. Flit infected her…
I did our makeup, and Matt (Prince Charming) made most of the costumes. (Rapunzel was just a ripped prom dress and Snow White was a ripped up store bought costume.)
We had a blast and I can’t wait until next year!!!
