He's a great motivator for her. I've got a mild cold right now - always when I fly - so I don't know how much I'll see her. It's my brother's bday tomorrow. I'll get to see him and the kids. Good motivator for me!

Ronda
Great to hear that Sues mum is doing well!

Running - I haven't done as much as I would have liked the past month or so. We've been really hectic since my Grandad got his Ahlzeimers (sp?) diagnosis, getting everything settled, but he seems really well lately so its time to get the shoes back on! Honestly, I can't wait to get back to it regularly!

We had huge snow predicted for December, like we had the year before...nothing. In fact I think it was the mildest Christmas day I can remember - before Lunch I was playing in the garden with my niece! Although the temperature has dropped 10 degrees from yesterday to today and they are predicting.....ICE!

Grrrrr Ice - my nemesis

Everyone - come and post your bios! I like reading them, even though I know you already

Hope everyone is having a great day

Oh my goodness, wonky day here.

Our internet was out last night and a good portion of this morning. Our provider had a regional router issue

I had my weekly weigh-in and beating this morning. This week I kept detailed records of my food, water & exercise. (oh Lisa. Erin is KILLING me! ) I was feeling just a tiny bit frustrated that my weight loss was only 1 pound. I thought I had *earned* more that THAT! Well, Ms. Erin did my bodyfat. I lost several pounds of fat, gained a bit of muscle and overall dropped 2.4% of my body fat. Ok. I can live with a one pound loss now

I adore Zumba! Yes, I still look like a fish out of water, but it's so much FUN! And isn't it easier to exercise when it's fun?

SO exciting Karen! Have you started packing yet? I'm totally last-minute packer, but I'm definitely a stacker/collector starting, well, about now!

I'm dying to live vicariously through you guys this year with the Princess, but this is the last year I'm on the sidelines, I'm gonna be there next year!



WELCOME RHIANNA! - ok. Boston. Let's see? Red Sox? Patriots?

Rugby. I played in college. Stupid fun

Wine. My 2 best friends are Kendall and Robert. As in Kendall Jackson and Robert Mondavi Seriously - kindred spirit here. Although, I am currently totally and completely on the wagon. My goal is to make it all the way to the Princess alcohol-free. For me, alcohol is the #1 factor in my weight gain and/or loss. I'm aiming for more "loss"

Me too. On both!

We had a smattering of snow here today. Just enough to cause a delay for school. But, it's about time really! We haven't had any snow since...well...since that horrific storm in October where we got 13" and lost power for what seemed like an eternity!

Have fun at the ball game! Are you required to wear a team jersey? I mean - I know how some people can get about their sports

Nancy! 2.4% bodyfat! That rocks!

No, I really haven't started packing! I don't know what the heck is wrong with me?!?!? I'm a freak of a planner and planned this trip for months and months, made tshirts, journals, autograph books...and now...I got nothin'. I think part of it is b/c everything we are wearing, we still are wearing NOW, so I can't pack any of that stuff and the tshirts I made are already in the bins I'm taking (we're driving). So, I don't know what to do?!?! It's really confusing, I usually have this all planned down to the last toothbrush but I seem stuck in limbo?!?!

Lisa, enjoy your snow! In fact, why don't you enjoy my snow too...you can have it all! Take it! Take it!

PAULA!! Paula, you need to get your a$$ back here. Here's my very selfish reasons. I realized today that YOU are the reason why *I think* I have finally separated self worth and the scale (and Liz) . To not have it mean something more than it is - what a gift to give to another Paula! GET BACK HERE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This was awesome - then hilarious when you threw me in there.

I am keeping a list of non-scale accomplishments. I try to add to it daily. Aren't you proud of me, Lisa?

Thursday is my crazy day. Well, I managed t exercise AND clean my house, and I never do wither on Thursday. Today was particularly busy at work, but I did it anyway! Woo! 5 days of exercise this week!

I leave tomorrow right after work. I'm not packed. Not happy about that!

I'm here.

Today was a crazy day. Stuck to my program even though it meant meeting old coworkers for lunch and watching them eat Thai, then going out for a beer after work with some coworkers and watching them drink beer.


Rhianna, love the name!! 7 of us are also doing the Princess - it will be year 3 for this group.

We're all turtles for the most part except for Nancy (AKASnowWhite) and Erika (3DisneyKids). Ronda is gradually turning into a rabbit as well.

I've done 8 half marathons since this group pushed me into my first, Princess 2010. My PR was November 2011 at 2:44, but I am down for the count lately with a strange lower leg injury. Still hoping to walk the Princess, though.

Lisa! I definitely owe you mail. I'm such a slacker.



Also, I want to give you guys a chance to order Princess/Goddess shirts. Cost for each will be $23-26 a piece, not including shipping.

Here's the link to the general Team Goddess shirt:

Here's the drinking shirt, which has a lot of crazy sayings on the back.
http://www.customink.com/designs/d20...-1tg8/retrieve


We're not going to place the order until next week, so you have time to decide. If you do want one, PM or email me and we can do paypal or you can mail a check, and I will send it out (like I did for Karen last year). The Team Goddess one can also be done in an order of 1 but it will be closer to $30-35 each, I think.

Also, these run true to size if a bit generous.

And I have Raptors tickets (NBA) tomorrow. $12.50 tickets as per usual. But have them. Will still try to walk but I've gone from 15 minute walk to 50 minutes.

Ok ok... since you had a revelation, I will come out of my hibernation / workaholic haze to comment.

Lisa I am so freak in proud of you I cant even put it into words! Yup - speechless I am.

What a great thing to find. It is liberating is it not?

Paula!!!

Kat, the shirts look GREAT this year! I still wear mine from last year almost every time I run. Of course, that may be b/c I only have one other running shirt, but I digress!

I'm going to pass this year, mostly b/c I just can't pull off any extra purchases with the trip coming up. I'm totally getting the jitters and freaking out about having enough money for the trip. Next year I will not only be ordering, but wearing my shirt in the Princess with you girls finally!

I love the shirts! Any idea how the arms run?

I had a bit of wind knocked out of my sails last night when two of the four friends that were running this year decided to put off their Princess registration until 2013, so now my plans are up in the air. Under normal circumstances I'd just go solo and be able to swing it, but I just booked two rooms for March when my dad is in town (quick aside- is it weird that at almost 32 I'm still excited by holding my dad's hand while walking down Main St in the MK?) so my finances are a bit tighter than usual. Sigh. Hmm... I wonder if there will still be relatively inexpensive rooms left in a few weeks when I get paid again...

I have a plan in place today to see if I can pull it together since I do know quite a few people who are running-- man, I'm really hoping this works-- I'm REALLY looking forward to it!

I have BIG arms and I think they will probably be okay. I'm totally a pumpkin on stilts.

We are about the same height and I was 230 at my highest, and an XL in a very similar shirt (dimensions are the same) fit okay at that weight if not great. I am usually arm self-conscious and I don't remember being so with the one I have. They are cut generously.

I completely understand this! I freak out about money close to trips, also!

I am so glad you and Rhi like the shirts! I do the words and initial layout and Kat does all the design work, ordering, etc. I have the easy part! But it's fun to see them as a reality!

I would keep the rooms, if I were you - if you already have them. So only one friend can go with you? Or would you be on your own?
