Wow! Has it really been two weeks since my last blog?! When I said I was going to be busy and not blog for awhile, I wasn't joking. Haha.

Well...I have good news and bad news. The bad news, is that I haven't worked out. Nor have I been sticking to my diet plan, AT ALL. I've gone grocery shopping only once in the past two weeks. My diet has mainly consisted of Starbucks skinny lattes,  fast food, and whatever someone brings into the office to share.

The good news, is that I haven't gained anything a matter of fact I've lost a little. I'm sure this is due to the fact that I've actually been BUSY. It's not like I'm sitting on my butt -- I'm working, dancing, singing and running around like a chicken with my head cut off!

Today is the last day of Traditions of Christmas. Which means that between this evening and Christmas will be a mad dash to finish shopping and wrapping presents. So if you're at the mall and you see a blur with big hair swoosh by's me...I hope I don't knock anyone over and Merry Christmas. :) 

I must say...I'm looking forward to getting back on track with my fitness plan. I'm missing it! I HAD upped my goal of 170 to the end of December...that's NOT happening. So, I'm hopping back on the 170 by the Carlsbad half-marathon bus. Which is about a month from now. Oy vey! I've got a lot to do between now and then...sweet.

I hope you and all of your families have a wonderful holiday, whatever you celebrate! Take care and God bless!

UGH. What a tough week this has been so far (and it's only Tuesday). I'm in tech week for the Christmas show I've been working on and that alone is time consuming and stressful. Throw my monthly female thing in there and that makes it 10 times worse (sorry men...I had to share...the women will understand). Needless to say, I've been trying to stay away from people as much as possible to spare them from a possible outburst of brutal honesty on my part. Haha.

Sticking to my plan this week has proven to be practically impossible. And I knew it would be, I had really tried to plan and prepare for it, but I've failed miserably. There are only so many hours in a day. I have NO time to exercise, I'm only getting a few hours of sleep a night as it is and if I cut into that, I'll be a definite grump all day (although I'm sure the exercise would feel good...maybe I'll TRY it tomorrow). I'm NOT eating according to my plan. I haven't had time to grocery shop and don't even have time to grab 'healthy' food between appointments. I will say, I haven't completely fallen off the wagon, I'm trying to do my best with what I have (while trying to satisfy the ridiculous cravings I'm having for chocolate and the like). I'm definitely not drinking enough water, so I'm feeling sluggish and I have this lingering dehydration headache. Good stuff.

I haven't gained any weight, which is good news. I'm really trying to watch my calorie intake. I can't wait for this week to be over so I can get back to a normal routine. I won't let this get me down or set me back. I have to chalk it up to 'one of those life things' and keep on truckin'. I don't anticipate losing weight this week but I'm thankful that the activities I am involved in are keeping me moving. So I'm still getting some calorie burning in.

Gotta get going...busy-busy. I'll blog at the end of the week, once the madness subsides. I'm soooo looking forward to it.

Have a great rest-of-the-week!
