How did I miss two days??? So first, YAY for VWL!!! That is awesome. Your day at the pool sounds so fun. So proud of you for having a plan in place for vacation!!!! You will do awesome. As for the ice cream, could you have a bite to make her happy??? The nacho place, if they have chicken or beef get a plate of that with the nacho cheese.... Just an idea.

Shopping today sounds fun. I wanted to get some shopping in but it seems like whenever we head out its DD1's naptime and she is cranky. This mommy needs a shopping day, sans kids!!!

WOO HOO on the run and the shred!!! Way to go!!! I am thinking about getting the shred dvd next time I go to the store.

LOL @ Jillian - I don't find her bad at all. I like a lot of what she says, like when it gets hard that's when it counts the most. She keeps me going.

Melanie- I plan to allow myself some controlled cheats while I'm gone. I'll probably have one small bowl of ice cream, and I will probably have the nachos. (I've only been hearing raves about them for the last year; and I adore nachos!) I will keep up the running and that will hopefully offset any extra carbage. Plus, we're going to be pretty active with hiking in the Rockies & stuff.

I didn't gain nearly what I thought I would yesterday - I'm 190.6 - 1.2 gain that I know is from sodium.

Lots to do today, hopefully have time for a run later

Good idea Cass- nacho-less nachos! All the good stuff, much less carbs

DH picked up my new (used) washer tonight. Internet & phone were down most of the day, totally screwed up my party plans for the day since I have a ton of graphics & stuff to print off. Oh well, got the yard work done at least.
Also went for a run w/my sis & aunts -beat our time again. 5k in 37 min. Very little walking and the pace was faster than my usual.

Food was good, not enough water again. Chugging tonight.

No workout today - really busy finishing this party. Thank goodness it's not until after dinner tomorrow. I need to focus on getting the house clean. Fun fun lol. DH & kids had McDonald's for dinner, funny cause I don't miss it. Brian brought me back an iced coffee and I had one of his fries and it tasted like cardboard. My sausage & peppers were delish though

Okay, can I just say.... I throw a kick-a$$ party!!! It couldn't have gone smoother. We had the star wars theme song playing (on repeat ) in the background all night. Each kid got their own Jedi or Princess Leia robe and a lightsaber. The lightsabres (pool noodles) were a hit - I think we could have skipped all the games & just let them fight lol. We had water balloons and a game where they had to shoot storm troopers with a nerf gun. After gift opening everyone sat on the lawn and we watched a movie drive-in style complete with popcorn and chocolate bars. We had two of DS's friends come, and they were blown away. The one is pretty well off, so for him to have never seen such a good party is saying something

I gave up on tracking my food yesterday - way too much grazing at the party. I bought these chocolates that look like rocks (but taste like mini eggs ) I made the mistake of tasting one then couldn't stop. Anyway, back at it 100% today. Only 2 days till vaca!!!

We'll have better pics on our fb, most are on the other camera. My sister made a white drink dispenser into r2d2, and we had green slushie yoda soda. The movie thing was pretty cool, we just moved the table out of the way & hung a sheet on the side of the house.

I had a run-in with leftover cake last night I wonder if I will ever be free of the "fat girl" mentality. Like the voice that says I want to eat an entire cake - not that I did, but that little voice was telling me to dive in mouth first lol. So back up to 193.6 today, feeling like crap and fighting cravings At least it was a wake up call to how crappy I feel when I eat crap. A good reminder to stay on plan while on vacation.

I've been so stressed this last week about 1) Star wars party, 2) Beach party (will be while I'm gone) and 3) Getting the house up for sale before we leave for vacation. I decided this am to let the house be until we get back. I really wanted the realtor to be able to show it anytime while we're gone so it will stay clean, but it's not going to work out. There's just too much to do and this is the only thing I can change. Plus, I really don't want to start out on a 35+ hr road trip exhausted.

Today's plan: M&E fast & LOTS of water
Start/finish packing
Shred level 3, run later
Kids soccer game

Tomorrow I'll finish any shopping etc, get my nails done and clean the house. Then we leave around 3am on Wed

Thanks ladies
So....found out last night that the beach party this weekend will be featured in the local paper. Great for business, crappy cause I won't be there & my sister will have to do it on her own and now it has to be PERFECT. I've been up until at least 2am every night this week working on it as it is That's on top of packing & the party last weekend. It's crunch time since we leave at 2am tomorrow morning.
Also, FIL was taken to ER again. They finally admitted him & checked his blood - everything was dangerously low. They're doing lots of tests, that it's nothing too serious (they're doing a ct & bone marrow test today & tomorrow). We'll be there in a few days, hopefully it's all sorted out by then.

Have a great week everyone!

I so hear ya on that fat girl mentality that screams in your ear - eat it allll. Had some of that this last week but managed to combat it by eating really slowly and getting full. I think low blood sugar does it for me.

How awesome your party will be in the paper! Sounds like a really neat business!! Have fun on the holiday and prayers for FIL.

Thanks for the concern We got back from vacation early this morning. We drove across Canada to visit my inlaws - it was an amazing trip. It took 3-4 days of driving each way and we spent some time exploring in the Rockies too. I'm proud to say I stayed mostly on plan, and even got in a few runs when I found the chance. The last few days of travelling did me in and I didn't get my water in, and ate pretty crappy. But overall I was good.

FIL is still not well, but is doing better. His body is still losing blood and the drs can't figure out why. The day we got there he was released from a week long hospital stay. We were happy to be there & spent lots of time with him.

The beach party went really well. I haven't seen it in the paper yet, but it's posted on our fb.

Glad to hear he is somewhat stable

Oh that IS a fun trip going from ontario across to BC. As long as you're not sick (been there done that once). Lovely time of year for it and the scenery is great. Running on holiday? Wow you are a real hard core runner now! Sounds like a great, and on plan holiday!

189.8!!!!!!!
Back in the 180s!!!!!!

So the article about that beach party finally appeared in the paper and guess what? The photog took credit for allmost everything. Our names were mentioned (that we "helped" with decorating) but they didn't even include any contact info for us. I'm super-ticked. We did all the work free of charge and weren't even given credit for most of it. WWYD????

This is our fb: Painless Parties if you want to check it out.

I don't think there's anything we can do about the article - it wasn't actually our party, and the photographer did give them our info, they just ignored it. So...whatever, it's done.

I finally got around to going through some trip pics :

This is the view we woke up to in the mountains:


Brian & the kids after hiking to a waterfall (the tallest in the Rockies)


At Lake Louise


More Hiking


The canola fields were in bloom & GORGEOUS so we pulled over & took the kids` portraits
