Well, I've had some requests to let everyone in on what exactly happened in Vegas last week, and I've finally got some free time to let everyone in on the deal! I also haven't blogged in a while, so thought it was time to pump one of these suckers out.
We stayed at Ballys, which I wouldn't recommend and wouldn't go back to - the hotel itself was nice, but 'cheap'. By that I mean, they charge for local phone calls, towels to take to the pool, and internet was 20$ a day!!! Needless to say, I was not on SP everyday, and will not be getting my monthly consistency badge. Sigh.
We were there from Sunday evening until Friday evening, and had a BLAST. I don't sleep well in hotels, so I was up at 5am everyday and running around waiting for them to get up - so walking the strip and gambling was definitely involved. While I didn't come back completely broke, I do not have a lot left in savings for the moment - but I had a good time.
We saw Mystere (Cirque De Soleil), Peepshow (Holly Madison at the Planet Hollywood) and went to the Strippers. We also went to the Atomic Testing Museum, and the South Outlet Shopping centre (this was also for the guys - and boy, men suck while they shop. I waited around forever!). It was a great time, and I want to go back already.
The only problem is the weather didn't cooperate at all - rained everyday for at least a little bit, and was cloudy the rest of the time. Not that great, considering when I went to San Fran in March it was the same. Boy, I'm not batting pretty good for holiday weather this year - hopefully Florida in January doesn't let me down!
Anyways, that's the short run of my holiday. Just thought I would share with the group. Everybody have a GREAT Wednesday!

Well, I've been on SP - just not on the blogs. I've been in a course at work, and am counting down the minutes until VEGAS (Sunday evening) and I'm ready to get the heck out of here. This course has been a nightmare, and I'm about done with all this crap already.
Anyways, I realized today that I'm only 7 pounds away from a weight I haven't seen since High School - which scared me and made me excited. I'm sure I'll probably either stay the same or gain in Vegas (come on! It's Vegas) - but I'm still going to be running there... and when I get back, things just get back to normal. Which means I'll slowly be moving that direction again. Wow, 7 pounds. Just doesn't sound like that much anymore. I also know that when I get there, I'll get there.
Thanks again to all my SP peeps that have been here for me. It's sure meant a lot.

Well, that one is easy today. I'm running the 10K Mothers Day Race, am coming home and making a HUGE Mothers Day Feast for my Mom and MIL, with my hubbies help. It's going to be a pretty crazy day, but I'm excited about it.
Also, I'm going to try to sit down tonight and figure out our hotel for a Wedding coming up in August, and watch the Amazing Race finale. Whoo! This is going to be a busy day!!!

Alright, I will. My goal is to run a Marathon in January of this year for the first time, and I've been thinking about this since yesterday - as I just signed up for my first HALF Marathon yesterday. I'm thinking how hard I've been working, how the more weight I seem to lose, the better my pacing and training is going, and how everything I put into my body can be good for my training.
Today, for everything I eat or drink, I'm going to think about it in long term thoughts - like if I continue to eat this, how will it only help me reach my goal?

Ironically if I had started this yesterday, I could have left it - last night I realized that all of my Workout Clothes STANK to high heaven, so I just washed them. Now I'll have to make one of them smell again.
I'm planning on doing a run tonight - so maybe I'll add in some circuit training when I'm done and make that shirt REALLY smell!
