 Yikes...well I hope you hit your goal. I'm sure you'll do good though. I have never seen you post about not doing well at one of these things.

good luck

The holidays are throwing me off too. And now I'm "spring" cleaning my house and semi-redecorating it too. I'm still trying for my goal to be in the 170s before Xmas though... We're making cookies. Eeek. I was going to just do arts&crafts stuff with my ds this year, and skip the holiday baking, but he has requested we make them. Plus my brother is coming and it will be something we can all do together. Eeek though! Cookies add up in calories soooo quickly. I think I'll keep a dozen or so around for everyone to enjoy and see if I can't get the rest out the door and off with my dh to work or something. The fun is is the making/decorating them anyway.

Have a good couple of rest days. :)

O thought you had set a time goal at least once before.
Yeah... I really domt have anyone to give them around here. Well...maybe a few, but we made Pinecone birdfeeders already to give out... among other things. Ah well... It has become a bit of a tradition. My son loves to decorate the sugar cookies.

awww yeah decorating is fun my daughter likes to do it too... I know a few people that I should give them too.. my neighbor has helped me out with a few things and babysat once and didn't want any money so I figure it would be nice to give her something back

ohh pinecone birdfeeders thats fun.. I have been meaning to make some with my daughter just for fun but I keep forgetting :(

oh I did set a time goal for my triathlon.. I wanted to finish in under 2:30 but I can't remember if I ever set a time goal for any of my runs

I know you'll do great on the run!
Can't wait to hear all about it.

That would be pretty cool if it was all flat and down hill!

I've been trying to work on sculpting a lot lately. I lost a lot of muscle tone over the past couple of months and I want my guns back, lol

Holiday cookies are EVIL. Tre has gotten into baking, so I told him we would have to bake some stuff soon... luckily, I can always make Ford take stuff to work where there is tons of younger guys that will eat it up, lol
