Those are my mile totals since June. 200 running miles, 361 total miles, including biking, swimming, running and cross country skiing.
I am thinking about joining the challenge on DM called 4022 in 2011. The actual challenge is 4022 cycling miles, but since I mainly run, I will modify it to running miles or any miles.
I guess I really need to start thinking of some goals for 2011. It is December 29th and I know I'm not going to reach my 145 pound goal by December 31 (unless I miraculously lose 5 pounds in the next 2 days). Maybe I can get those pounds off by my 35th birthday (January 17). I'd really like to maintain one forty something and not one fifty something.
My girl friend had to cancel this evening for our night out and she explaining the new weight watchers system to me. We are going to try to meet up on Friday since we both have the day off.
Time to get to work. Happy Hump Day!

oh sparkfriends, I'm so sorry I was absent over the holidays.
Things are looking more positive for me. I woke up this morning, decided I was going to work from home, checked my email and whattaya know??? We got an extra holiday! Thank you Landmark!! What's even better is my husband also has today off. WOOO HOOO! We are talking about running some errands and then going cross country skiing on the rail trail this afternoon. :)
I'm planning my weekly meals right now and we're going to hit the grocery store after that.
Happy New Year sparkers!

I changed two light bulbs today. It doesn't sound like much, but it is a major accomplishment for this busy chick. I have all my Christmas cards on display. Another small accomplishment, but trying to give myself little gold stars amidst all this turmoil.
I don't know how, but I am losing weight. I will put this in my positive list, too.
I can't wait to sleep in the next two days... with my husband. I miss him so much.
I have no goals for today... and maybe I need a day like that. Maybe a reset day. I am going to try to hit the treadmill, but if I don't, that's okay.
Peace and love to everyone.

I think I realized by reading my blog from yesterday, that I am overwhelmed and overbooked.
My girl friend Lois has the weight watcher meetings and maybe it was a sign that I needed to spend some time at home because she texted to say they were only doing weigh in this week and no meeting so don't bother coming. That gave me more time yesterday evening to wrap Christmas presents with my Dad. I went to the grocery store at lunch to save myself some time. Christmas wrapping took 2 hours! I forgot how much stuff we bought for my mom.
Those were the only two things out of my list that I accomplished. I guess I straightened up the living room a little... if you count putting the wrapping paper and ribbons away. Fortunately, my dining room and living room usually stay straight since I'm never there to use them.
Okay, so I woke up this morning and I thought, wow, its awfully cold in here... yep, that would be because BOTH my heat sources failed last night. I'm ready for that break any time now. Seriously. I got the radiant heat back online. I have no idea what is wrong with the pellet stove, but I would guess its the ignitor again. I just had it replaced less than 6 months ago and I've only used it the last 2 months.
I haven't heard from the insurance company yet if the SUV is a total loss or not.
I wrote my positives in my paper journal trying, trying, trying to stay positive:
-I weighed in at 152 this morning with my clothes on
-I got my radiant working
-I have 2 more days of work then I'm off for 3 (and so is my husby!)
-I brought my running stuff (the cemetary wasn't plowed though so I couldn't go)
I am going to hit the Christmas treadmill when I get home.
My goals for this evening are:
-fix breakfast, lunch and snacks for tomorrow
-straighten up the kitchen, living room and dining room
-clean the bathrooms
-if I have time, play wii fit with Mom
Have a good hump day.
