Yes, it was a great night. So great, in fact that I had to sleep all day Sun to recover

Anywhooo....Still on plan, did yoga & run at the track tonight. We did an extra 6 laps for a total of 3.6 running, plus about 10 walking laps (another 2k). Man, I'm still kicking myself for letting it go, I'd be doing 10k easily by now. Instead I'm struggling with 1.2k intervals Oh well.

Good news- We booked our first pary today!!!! EEEKKKK Girl's 4th birthday, 30+ people, at a hall. We're doing cake, food, decorations, everything. Only 3 days till we get our deposit and it's official

I spent the day running around with my sis & our kids (6 under 5) to pick up stuff for this party. We went for lunch at Applebees and shared a bunch of appetizers so food was pretty bad. By the time we got home I was totally beat, but I had to meet my aunt at the track. I had time to quickly change my pants and put the chicken in the oven before I Had to leave again. My running is still in the toilet- the most I could do was 6 laps (1.2k), then only 2 at a time after that. We still got in a decent workout though.

This party is looking pretty good though. We were able to get most of our supplies on clearance - major +++. I'll have to post pics when it's done.

Sorry Gals, I've been neglecting my journal horribly. I've been staying on plan though, keeping below 20-30 carbs. I've been doing bacon & eggs for bfast & lunch every day then meat & salad for dinner. The weather here has been so crazy this winter. Yesterday it was 46F. Seriously??? We're usually knee deep in snow this time of year, and instead I was running outside without a jacket. Wierd. My sis & I ran the trail by the lake that I did a lot last summer. It was like our own private mud run. There were long stretches where the trail was so muddy we had to run through the weeds on the side of the path, I felt like I was jumping hurdles over the larger ones. LOL It was fun, and it felt so good to be out in the sunshine for the first time in weeks/months. I can't wait till spring!

So I had a lady call me about another party- problem is she already has the decorations, cake, cupcakes, candy bar - pretty much everything we do/want to do. When I told her that, she was like, well can't you do something for me? She wanted us to serve guests & keep the kids busy- I was like that's not what we do. Funny thing is every time I say no, we don't do that, she's like but I need help!!! If she calls again I'm going to give her an outrageous price and if she still wants us we'll make some $$$$. lol Can you tell I have little patience for pushy people?

The problem is, every party is advertising for us and we don't want to be known for being childcare/servants. Especially because we're just starting out we have to be careful what we put our name on. Also, it's kinda a conflict of interest to be working with our competitors, ya know?
I sent her an email today saying we can do the decorating using the stuff she already bought along with ours and all the behind the scene stuff. Basically take it or leave it.

I've been so busy lately I've forgotten to check in We have our big party coming up on Sat, and had a Valentine party for my kids & neices & nephews. I swear I'm in party-planning mode 24/7. Once this one is over I can start on a Lego party for DH. (Yup, he's a lego geek but it's his 30th so I'll humour him lol)

I hurt my shins running again - this time I'm positive it's my shoes. I'll have to get new ones this weekend. I have to run, and I can't go out again in these shoes.

In my spare time (yeah right) I did my taxes- big refund coming my way!

I had a major slip-up on the weekend. I allowed myself get too hungry/thirsty/tired/stressed etc. and ended up eating pretty much everything I know I can't eat. Starch & sugar make me crave more starch & sugar. I know it will never go away, I just need to get it through my head that I simply cannot eat that crap. Ever.

My party was a huge success! We were complimented all night on everything! It went smoothly, aside from a few small glitches that no-one noticed other than us. We even had many people ask for our cards. One girl even said she wanted to work for us lol.

Eating was horrible all weekend- just way too much eating on the fly & poor choices. Then Sun we had crepes for dinner at my mom & dad's followed by movie night (& treats) at my sister's with the girls.

I got new running shoes! And I wore them all weekend to break them in. I went to the track today and did only 6 laps before the pain was so bad I had to stop. WTH??? I was almost in tears when I got home. I'm just so stinkin frustrated! Grrrr. I need to get my mojo back stat. I think my frustration with the running is worse than the scale. At least I could control how much I run.

You're doing so great Amber! And you have your surgery soon you'll be seeing onederland before you know it! I however need a huge kick in the pants! You're right, I'm getting too comfy.

I went to the track again today & did really well. I paid close attention to my form and realized I was striking really hard with my heel instead of my forefoot. Probably because my old shoes had no cushioning left in the front. I think going by myself a few times is what I need so I can set my own pace. So today I did 3 sets of run 5 laps (1k), walk 2 (.4k) - a big improvement from yesterday.

Ceecee- Thanks Yes, the pics are on the site. There aren't any of the whole hall cause guests started arriving 1/2 hr early (Who does that????) so most are close-ups.

Amber- I ran outside on Monday- it was really windy but awesome! I forgot how much I love running on the road vs track. I wanted so badly to go yesterday - it was gorgeous outside (sunny and 50s) but didn't have time before DH went to work. He's on the dreaded afternoon shift, ugh.

So I went to my parents house today and worked out on their total gym. I have no idea how much weights I did, but I did a bunch of arm & leg exercises. Then ran 10 min on the treadmill. I still can't do the treadmill thing- it's really narrow and I feel like I'm going to trip on my own feet.

So.... tonight I went for my 3rd run this week and it's only Wed! I'm PMSing like crazy- I have a full week where my energy level is beyond low. I swear I could curl up & sleep the week away. Anyway, I pushed through it and ran/walked about 4k each day. Tonight I went out to the track, alone, in the dark: something I NEVER do, but man it felt good. I ran 2 laps at a time (800m) then walked like, 1/4-1/2 lap for about 30 min. I was pretty proud that I could do more than 1 lap at a time this week. Did I mention my I-pod was dead? I usually have a hard time if I can hear my own breath- like it psyches me out or something. I also increased my weights to 10lbs for my arm workouts. I just hope I don't bulk up- that's the last thing I need- Hulk arms on top with all my flab hanging below

I'm dreading tomorrow- it's DH's bday and he wants pizza from our fav. italian place. It's such a treat, I know I won't turn it down. I'll try to steer clear of the cake though, and it will be just the one meal. For his party on the weekend, I'll make sure I have a nice salad & an atkin bar or something in leu of cake.

I've been LC-ing for 1 yr now. It makes me sad that I'm not even close to goal, but I'm mostly pleased with my fitness level.

DH's party was a success! I did eat cake & chips, but the damage was only one meal, so not bad. I running outside!!! And thanks to daylight savings time I have more time to do it before dark. I went out tonight for 1/2 hr at the track. I'm not sure how many laps I did total, but I'd run 2, walk 1/4 lap, and so on. Definately an improvement over last week

I got an email today from the guy we threw the safari party for. He made us a video testimonial, not of him talking, but a slideshow of the pictures he took with a rap he wrote plaing in the background! Seriously, if it was shorter, and not so "rappy" it could be a tv commercial! lol If you look up "painless parties" on youtube, it's the first one. Totally made my day!

Hey hun, I am starting to feel semi-human again! Dont be getting down on yourself, look at what you accomplished in that year, you started running, did you ever think a year ago you would look forward to running??? You have to look at the positives!!!

Now is a good time to get back to being strict when the weather gets warmer you can go running!! You will do it hun, you are living life too there is something to be said for that!

My running mojo is back! Temps have been in the 70s all week- gorgeous! Tonight I went with my running buddies for a long one- 6.5k. We walked about half and for the first time in months I felt like I didn't push myself hard enough. What a great feeling! I'll try to get out again tomorrow.
I actually sunbathed today, in March! How crazy is that??? So now I'm tanned & tired lol.
