WRMC Week #5 - August 29 through September 2 (Mon - Fri)
This week will be a five day challenge so it doesn't interfere with anyone's holiday weekend plans.

This coming weekend is Labor Day, and it is traditionally the last Hurrah! Of the summer. This year let’s think of ways to celebrate, but still honor our health & fitness journey…..


FOOD: Give yourself 50 points for staying in your calorie range each day this week.
BONUS: 50 more points for sharing in the WR chat thread a recipe or trick you use to make a traditional picnic food more healthy.

WATER: Drink your magic number each day – whether you use the “8x8” or 1/2 your body weight in ounces or a number given to you by your doctor or nutritionist, hit YOUR number every day! 50 points for each day
BONUS: Make at least one glass this week special. Instead of that ugly plastic water bottle, break out the crystal. Celebrate your water as special by adding a slice of citrus or a few mint leaves. 50 points if you drink from a real glass this week.

M [ 50 ]
T [ 50 ]
W [ 50 ]

You don’t have to do all 30 minutes at once. Add together all the INTENTIONAL movement you do in a day and give yourself the points.
BONUS: Recruit a friend. Exercise with a buddy, a significant other, a kid, a virtual friend (make an exercise *date* on line than report back to each other), your pet, a stranger you meet out running (OK that’s going a little to far, but you get the idea) Complete one workout with someone else & gain 50 bonus points.

Okay HELP! Need Your Opinions Please!!!!!

Wednesday, August 24, 2011

So, having just gotten off the phone with the folks at the Pyramid Collection - I'm SOL regarding the dress I'd originally picked for the handfasting. Having sent the large back, it apparently takes up to 4-6 weeks for them to process returns (though the rep on the phone said right now they've got about a 3 week turnaround), and THEN it would take 5-7 business days to ship me the larger size. 'Yote suggested I go on the site and just order the XL and it'd come quicker, and we could just send the return back again once it gets here...but having gone on the site, it now says XL is not only out of stock but "no longer available".

Okay, so on to other options.

I've had several people suggest that I check out "Holy Clothing", and WOW were they right - HALF the price and there were several styles I liked. One in particular, but now I have a conundrum The Boy can't help me with. So I'm turing to my wonderful spark (and facebook when this crossposts) friends to see if y'all can help me choose what color.

The style I've decided on is the "Belladonna Peasant Bustier Empire Waist Gypsy Boho Corset Dress"

I really like BOTH of these colors, but the one on the left looks more wedding/handfasting-y to me.



My concern is whether I'll look washed out in something that light, or if I should go with the darker color. This picture shows my coloring fairly well (though you don't really see all the silver in my hair that well, but still it'll do):


Okay, this one might be better...


Okay folks...what do you think?
HELP!

I'd have to see you wearing both to really be sure. emoticon Then again, you wear darker colors really well. Sorry, I'm not being much help am I? The majority vote seems to be leaning towards purple though.

    I've always been drawn to purple, I feel it is an especially spiritual color. It can bring a sense of calm, while at the same time be uplifting. Remember, it is also very regal in nature and can help you feel the essence of the queen you shall be on your special day.

I also find purple to be a VERY sexy color!

    I like them both. I do tend to think the lighter color is more hand-fasty, as you put it, but I like the purple color better.

What you could do is go "shopping" at local stores and see if you can find something similar to that pale blue and see how it looks with your coloring. Sometimes people with fair coloring look great in pale blue, and sometimes not, and I don't know how to tell from the picture. The purple would look great.

Or maybe you can order both and return the one you don't want? I don't know Holy clothing's return policy is like as I've never bought anything from them though I have a friend who has gotten a lot of really pretty clothing there.

    I vote the blue. The pale shimmery dress is more magical, will highlight the silvery strands in your hair... it just seems more ethereal.

Purple, rocks, it rocks HARD. BUT you look like you do purple alot (you should). Purple is for hardcore, sexy parties - loud, raunchy and awesome.

I think the pale blue would be more sensual and romantic for the handfasting - it will take Yote's breath away... it floats and shimmers...

Love it!

    I love both colors. Trying to picture you in them is a bit difficult, BUT.........with the photos you've provided, I think, while the blue might look more wedding/handfasting, I'm afraid the lightness of the color would make you fade into the scenery....especially if you have some gray in your hair. The purple would make shine, and would bring out your natural coloring better.

JMHO..........and I LOVE the style of the dress!!!!

    I think the light blue will look amazing with your silvery hair. I have silver "highlights" too and am finding that I actually look great in light blues and greens. If your eyes are blue, I'm almost certain that the blue dress will look good with your skin tone and I agree that it looks more traditional...whatever that means!
Also, I would go with a light make up job, a swish of pinkish lip gloss and a soft brown smoky eye colour.

Which means that to you it would be more special to you. (Although I love the purple dress and as purple is my favorite color). You can't go wrong either way.

    I'm a Purple Person, so I would totally go for the purple if it were me.

You have to choose the one that's going to make you feel at your best. If you normally wear (and feel super sexy in) jewel tones/darker colours, then you would probably feel more comfortable in the purple- just because that's the effect you're used to.

If you had a spare hour or two, you could go to a fabric store or any clothing store to check a comparable colour against your skin tone.

The bottom line is, it only matters what YOU think of it.

I think I agree purple is a very good color on you but understand your draw to the white one. So if you are set on it being a more traditional wedding/handfasty color, I think you should order it because you will look divine in both.

You are gorgeous enough to carry either one off!

Wait, WHAT?

Monday, August 22, 2011

Hold up! No seriously...wtf?

cincyhalfmarathon.com/Half%20Maratho
n.htm


Why exactly am I doing the Columbus Marathon on my mate's birthday (thus screwing with not only our usual trip to Con on the Cob for his birthday that weekend, but also a friend's wedding in Cincy on Oct. 15th, BOTH of which conflict with being in Columbus on Oct. 16th) when there's a half marathon right here the following week?

*blink*

*blink blink*

Oh right...there are spark friends doing the half in C-bus. And it was the first race I *ever* did (back when my sister and I were training for Disney, TTES did the relay at Columbus as our first ever race experience, and it was awesome), so it has a certain nostalgic appeal.

But still...

Wonder if I should try both. Or if that's just crazy talk (particularly since I'm thinking about doing the Run Like Hell the following Friday, which is just a 5K but still)...

Crap. More decisions to think about. JUST what I needed.

The Answer Is In The Adventure

Sunday, August 21, 2011

So speaking of Yoovie (as I did in my last blog), she wrote a blog last week that really hit home - go check it out if you haven't seen it yet: www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_jo
urnal_individual.asp?blog_id=4435211


Here's the important bit:

"If you could go on any physically demanding adventure in the world, within 5 years, what would it be? (and dont wahhhhhhhhh me about I CANT!!!! this is about your freaking imagination, people)

And... how could your next workout feel like the first step?"

One of the things that REALLY struck me about the last season of The Biggest Loser was seeing the contestants face their fears and going on adventures in New Zealand (my blog about that:
www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_jo
urnal_individual.asp?blog_id=4169848
)

The answer is in the adventure. Seriously. (FWIW, that's a line from one of my mate's poems...see, there are reasons we're together.)
emoticon

When I dusted off my sparkpage at the end of May 2010, I had what I considered at the time a pipe dream to do a full marathon before I turned 50. Well, I'm well into training for a half marathon coming up in October, and yep, I'm planning on doing the full Flying Pig Marathon this spring. Which means I'll actually be doing it a full year early (something I wouldn't have believed had you told me that in May 2010). AND I'm doing a Warrior Dash in a little over 2 (!) weeks - which I never in a million years expected to do this soon (no really, I'd thought "maybe in 2012" when I first heard about them).

So...then what?

*blink*

The honest truth is that I don't really see myself as a "runner for life" - I want to do a marathon so I can say "Yeah, I did that - I rawk!" But marathons aren't the end-all and be-all to me (and I suspect once I've finally done one, I don't know that I'll care to repeat the experience). But there are other things. Like hiking mountains, maybe getting back into tennis or learning a whole new sport, or who knows maybe someday I WILL jump off the top of the Space Needle.

If I could go anywhere and do anything...what can I aspire to achieve?

If you can dream it, you can BE it.

What adventure do YOU want to make happen in your life?

Think about it. I know I am.

    You know what I want to do? And I have been thinking about this and plotting how long and what training would be most effective. I want to go on Wipeout! So bad I can almost taste it! It looks hard and fun and waaaaaaay out of my comfort zone and I WANNA! SO! After this year of becoming a bike commuter and prepping for Burning Man next year (read next fall) I am planning to start a strategic training program designed to help me at least get past the first round.

Also, they now have a warrior dash in Oregon! I wanna go do that next year, too! (it's like Wipeout, but with more people and less TV LOLOL)

    I have always dreamed of hiking the Adirondack Trail, but..... Not for a few years - let's get the kidlets out of high school first!

A closer dream would be a rim to rim Grand Canyon hike. But the more I think about that one, the less I want to do it. I'm tired of the desert.

I need to explore long trail options in the Northwest!

    Ah, yes, facing our fears. The hardest step to do, and probably the most valuable. Most of us don't step outside our comfort zones. I know I have a tough time with that. I am finally realizing that the only thing worse than risk is not taking any risk at all. Life cannot be lived without some risks.

For this WRMC, we’re going to aim for “8 x 8,” or eight 8-ounce glasses, but if your doctor advocates more or less, then let that be your guide. Can you drink too much water? Yes, but it’s rarely done according to the article. Earn 100 points a day if you get “8 x 8” or whatever your doctor has advised.
