Finally Friday!

Hurray for fridays! Another week over!

Not much going on this weekend. I have decided that I haven't seen my friends in WAY too long so I'm having some people over this weekend for a card party. Should be a blast! Probably not going to drink too much, so I should be good on the WW front. Plus people aren't coming over until after dinner.

Bad news, my wrists and elbows hurt. It's probably from (a) spending so much time on a computer, and (b) making all those breast cancer pins. Sigh. Hopfully it will go away soon!

In other news, I have been doing pretty good at staying on track all week. Except for the minor slip up called Chinese Food. We ordered out last night. Pizza I can deal with, Chinese, apparently not! Oh well, I drank tons of water today, and I plan on going running tonight. Nothing much (3km), but at least I will be geting out.

I signed up for the Hypo Half in January today. Registration started this week and it's already at over 100 people. It's capped at 300!!! I'm glad I got signed up before it was full! I would have been pretty upset if I couldn't do the half after having trained for it all through December!! On a similar note, I should sign up for the resolution run before it fills up too!

Well, I'm off to finish up at work, before heading out a little early! Have a great weekend!

I am sick and tired of this rollercoaster of a ride I am on. I want to get off! It's a horribly visous cycle! I don't loose, so I don't track, so I don't loose. I have had enough! I'm not loosing, I'm not tracking, and I'm not eating right! If I plan on getting below 200 by christmas, this has to stop, and it has to stop NOW!

The only thing I am doing right, is running. And even then I'm struggling to get out regularly. According to the Running Room schedule, I should be doing 5 runs a week. I'm averging 4. Not too bad, but still not great. I'm paying for the gym, and I haven't been there in about a month now. I hate wasting money like that...

What happend to my motivation? I NEED it back, and fast.

I'm going to take it one day at a time. I will track one day at a time. When I get through today, I will worry about tomorrow. Hopefully this will get me back on track. I don't know what else to do.

On a different note, I have decided to cut WAY back on the amount of pop I drink. I'm going down to when I'm out, or special occations. I'm going to drink more water, and probably some crystal light. So far so good. I'm on day 2 without any pop.

You know your a real runner when...

You actually look forward to a run in the rain.

I just got back from a nice run out in the rain. Ran alot faster then usual too! It was a good run..

Now, off to dinner.

What a weekend

I'm pretty happy with my time at the Zoo run. Not a PR, bit then again, they can't all be PR's! I do want to say Way to Go to my Uncle who did get a PR (56min!!) and DBF who finished his first timed 5km! You guys rock!

I spent the day Sunday vegging on the couch, watching movies. It was great to have a relaxing day. Plus I got some beading done.

My pet peeve of the day: people who show up to a training class, but spend the whole time checking their blackberry. If you have better things to do, don't waiste my time. Grrrr...

Whats new with me...

Not much. I started selling a few of my necklaces at work, and I think I did pretty well for my first day, $45! And a bunch of people saying they would love to see more. So I'm pretty happy about that!

I got rear-ended on wednesday night, while driving home. Nothing overly serious, but it still sucks. It's gonna cost almost $700 to fix the back bumper, and it will take 2 days. At least the guy that hit me realises that it is his fault and has agreed to pay for the damages. So thats good too.

I'm heading to Toronto tonight to go and run the Zoo Run 10km. I'm looking forward to that, it sounds like something a little different in terms of races.

Well, that's pretty much all that's new with me! What's new with you?

So close, but...

Still so far! I almost made it in to the Running Room for the Sunday group run. However, around 8:30, when I woke up, I realised that I wasn't going. Oh well, maybe next time. I did get up and do an 8km run though, so that was good!

Thanks for giving your thoughts on the business cards. I ended up going with some bright colored cards. I have hot pink, line green, bright blue, yellow and red. I decided to go with the colored cards, that way, if people get them mixed in with other papers and other cards, mine will stand out much more then a white card. Here's an example:

Well, I suppose I should get back to work. Hurray for 4 day work weeks!

This weeks WI!

Yahoo!! I'm down 3.5lbs. That puts a good dent in the 7lbs I want to loose by christmas!

My treat this week: A bottle of Cream Soda, and two cookies.
(Every week after WI, I allow myself to have something "not WW". Sometimes it's pizza, or fries) I fought off the craving I've been having for chip wagon fries, and bought 2 cookies at a bake sale for United Way. MUCH better then the greasy fries!

I gotta get my act together for the Weekend to End Breast Cancer stuff. I've been telling people at work about it and a bunch of people have already said they will support me! I plan on getting my personal webpage set up and ready for donations this weekend, allong with the "business cards" that I will be handing out. What do you think, should I print them on bright pink paper, or on white with a picture of a pink ribbon? Leave a comment and let me know what you think.

Have a great turkey day!

Sorry for the lack of postage ladies (and gents). Life has been busy. Work had me going all over the city putting out "fires" (not real ones!) I always say things are going to be settling down soon, but that doesn't seem to be the case. Oh well, I just roll with the flow!

WW is going ok. I'm hoping to stay the same this week, but if I'm really lucky, I might loose (given my food this week, I doubt it!) But I am proud to say that I am back at it and am tracking everything religiously again, and measuring food. This is good.

I am also back at running. Which is also good. So far I'm enjoying the 1/2 marathon clinic. Nice people, and the distance isn't too bad, yet.

I have also decided that I am going to walk in the Weekend to End Breast Cancer this year. So I am getting started on raising my money now! I am going to make beaded necklaces and sell them. As soon as I get a few things ready, I will be posting some pics here, so you can see them, and even buy some if you are interested! More info to come on that.

I'm looking forward to the long weekend, I need some time off! I'm going to try really hard to stay on track though. The last thing I need is another "event" to throw the whole WW thing off, again.

My next goal is to be below 200lbs for christmas. That's 7 lbs in 3 months. As long as I stay on track, it's do-able!
