Pretty much can't have them in the house and stay on track. I also teach fondants & fillings, dipping techniques, truffles and chocolate covered fruit. So now you know why #1 is sooooo hard for me these days. I've taught 1-2 classes/week for the last 3 weeks and I have 2 more to go.

The race I'm looking at is the Old Kent River Bank Run 5, 10 or 25K. The SIL wants to do the 10K, we'll see - I'm having some training issues. I talked to my DD's about coming with me and registering as a "team" and they were pumped, so maybe it'll be a family fast walk instead of a race. The last time I wanted to do a race, I was belly up and wishing for death.
Chocolate Class?! WOO! sounds like a place for me! : D Maybe I should go into Culinary.. but that would undo my whole diet =( ...but i love Chocolate.. lol but I haven't had any since before last week so I'm doing good It's not even my goal this week.

Maybe I should start running too- I've been afraid of running since I hurt myself in Boot Camp from running and ended up in crutches =( but crutches are a work out too lol and I think my hips and legs are healed after almost 4 years.

Phew! I sure make a lot of posts when I get back on Fit Day =( I'm such a talker lol

I went out all in the beginning of January with Resume's and handed them out to every store in the mall- only after 2 weeks by, when I was waiting for the first interview at the pizza place did I know I had one typo on my Resume, and it was......my phone number! DAH =/ guess I need to quadroople check my work from now on, usually I'm pretty good at that. But now my Resume is fixed and ready to go!
good luck. This may sound crazy but I kinda miss working in the mall.

Running scares me too, I'm an asthmatic with short legs, one with a reconstructed knee (so my legs aren't the same length anymore), and a bladder that's been through 3 pregnancies.

I'm chatty too. If that's you in the picture, you look so much like a college friend of mine.

Oh wow I guess I shouldn't be complaining too much then, I messed up my hips and my legs somehow but they should be recovered by now- they weren't broken though and doctors couldn't figure out what happened.

And I've never had any kids definitely not ready for any right now.

And yep it's my boyfriend and myself. I live in Michigan so I don't know, people always say I look like some one they know, don't know why.. but soon I am having a drastic hair make over based off one of the girls of country music so we'll see what happens then

I am trying to catch up on everyone's posts then I am going to try to "kidnap" my god daughter to go get FroYo! I always remember feeling extra special doing stuff like that on school nights!

jhowar16- I always have people tell me I look familiar too! Good luck on the job search, I have to admit I LOL'd about the phone number!

almeeker- No way would I be able to make all that chocolate and not eat some! Do you make dark chocolate???

01gt4.6- I don't even like shopping in a mall! But I love Express and VC!

carolinefrance- That's pretty cool that you are even more in love 9 years later.

Ooh! I'm not sure what Express is but you got discounts on other stores in the mall? Sweet! We have a Victoria's Secret here too and I do enjoy some of their things in there lol my boyfriend always feel awkward shopping with me there.

VABeachGirl Yea, I couldn't do anything but laugh and say "Oh, maybe that's why no one called me back"

And what is considered warm in your city? Just curious because when Michigan goes through its rough winters, by the time 40 rolls around- pretty soon here- it feels like a heat wave! lol
