Weight I have lost

Running is Back ON!

I hope you all had a Merry Christmas (if you celebrate it). D and I had a quiet one.
No tree, no presents this year. At first it was because it was too hard for me to deal with Porter's death, and handling Christmas ornaments to her, from her, her stocking, etc.

Then due to the unexpected $$ from driving to Atlanta and Guinness's boarding costs, etc. well, why get each other presents? But then, thinking about it, we had discussed when buying our bikes last year that they were our birthday and Christmas presents. So that sat well.

We didn't do our annual Christmas card...that was poor timing...we got the pup's pictures taken with Santa on Dec 11, left for MD on Dec 12, ordered the pics on Dec 21 and got them on Dec 24. So no way a card was going out. Oh well.

As for the pups,
Guinness got a new dog bowl and some bones.
Scuttlebutt got a new crate and some bones.

It was quiet, but we have each other and our little family, and that made me happy. We watched a very Christmas-y show. It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia Christmas. It's exemplifies the Christmas Spirit...*snort.*

We also watched Funny People...didn't realize this was a dramedy. Nick and Nora's Playlist was eh...Hangover was great. Love Actually is an annual tradition...love it!

D and I also got the best news...SB's nut hacking ceremony has been scheduled for 1/4!!! That means he can then go to the park, go to training, go to daycare, be kenneled, etc. And we'll be in compliance with GA Law (Rescue dogs have to be spayed/neutered)! The dog is crazy, so hopefully this will calm him down some.

Last night, D and I got on the scale. It was not a pretty sight. So off to the gym. 2 miles run. I hate running at this weight. Gravity is in full effect! My sides hurt while running as does my ass. But it was because of the fat bounce. Ugh! So Sparkpeople is back up too.

And we signed up for our first race of 2010. Jan 9, 5K.
Of course our 13.1 mile training will be in effect and Jan 10 we have to run 4 miles.

Nice work getting back into running....I still need to start that up again too.

Love Actually is one of my favorite Christmas movies.
