I have to say that the last MG I attended, many years ago, the nights were cold as a witch's mammary gland! So a little later in the spring would be find too.

BTW, lots of train options to NOLA, east coast, Chicago, along the southern boarder for those thinking of making it an adventure.
The temps were great this year, but the weather can vary a lot from one day to the next here. I've done 3 RnR races in NOLA and the weather for all 3 has been blue skies and the temps in the mid to upper 60's during the race and 50's at night. Right now it's 58* in NOLA. I can tell you one hotel that I WON'T be suggesting!!!

Lol

I hit the gym again tonight was legs and I barely got through the 30 minutes of elliptical afterwards. But I am leg pressing 225 for 10 reps Whoya!!! OF course i can barely walk down the stairs afterwards because my muscles are so fatigued
If Tori did try to run along side, she'd need a head start and would only get in one insult b/c there's no way she can hang with me.

Busy day today, I didn't write anything but just got home. I forgot my steroids at home so I just took 2 (I hope it's okay and will take 2 more before bed)

I'll try to post back in a little bit.

1) 3000 cals deficient: -697, +829, -659, 0?, -213 (-740 so far )
2) workout 3 times: no, no, yes, no, no
3) walk 2 times: no, no, yes (just over 5 miles), no, no
4) 4 serving of fruit/veggies: yes, yes, yes, no, no
5) weigh in daily (starting Tuesday morning): will tomorrow,T= 184.6,w= 183.2, Th=181.4, F=182.4 (-2.2 so far)

I won't hit my #1 or #2 goals. I decided that I'm not going to workout the rest of this week b/c I really need to give my back a rest, even if it's just a small one.

Kim ~ Great summary of the thread. I guess the balance between challenging & overdoing is something that we all work thru regardless of where we are fitness wise.

Mern ~ I logged in what snack I could have before eating . . .and I ate that & no more. All though I really felt like pigging out.

Will post actual #s tomorrow. But I will say that I hit my calories today, but that's all. Oh, and I cleaned my car out, sort of. It still needs vacuuming and washing, but the junk that's collected is pretty much gone. Now I just gotta get the non junk "stuff" out of it.....I swear people probably think I live in the dang thing. Had a good girls' night out. A bunch of us went to dinner and then to a movie. The movie was good, not great though. You know it's not great when you spend most of the time on facebook. Another busy day tomorrow, gotta work in the morning and then party tomorrow night. Probably won't hit my calories again tomorrow. I'm just throwing in the towel this week. I'll try my best to catch up on everything some time tomorrow afternoon. If not then, Sunday. Sunday is the only day that I have nothing planned. Off to get a couple of hours before work.

Night All!!!

Well, looks like I don't have much to catch up on. Kim did it for me!! THANKS!!! And me and Mike spar?? pppsssstttttt I chuckled silently (kitty is sleeping) at your "Tori will run along side hurling insults at him". I wouldn't do that. I'd be huffing and puffing trying to keep up with the speed demon!!

Sorry to say that no matter where a get together is held unless it is in boring PA, I won't be able to attend this year. We will be spending our money this summer to put a new roof on the house. Also filling in along the driveway with about 250 tons of slate to make a place to build my hubby a proper garage. I will expect tons of pics and live through the rest of you though!
