I had a hard time logging into my Live Journal account! Long, long time!

My goals for 2010:

More scrapbooking! More running! More low carb! More organization! More church! More shoes! Better health! And maybe a little more money?

I want to scrapbook OR read a good book every single day.

I'm ready for a good workout! Tomorrow after work - 2 miles. I know, that's like NOTHING, but it's a good start. I think it's going to feel good. I just hope it doesn't make me cough. I still can't believe I've been sick since Thanksgiving. I think this will help. Been feeling old and out of shape and ill lately - I need to get my edge back! Hahahaha... Been eating low carb since January 1st - yay.

Going to church on Sunday. Already ordered my first pair of shoes from shoedazzle.com - HA! Cannot wait to get them!

Went to Idaho for Christmas to visit the family and sooooooooooooooooooo loved it!! But on the other hand, SO GOOD to be back. Yes, I am DEFINITELY a Californian now, and so happy to be home. 75 degrees all week - woot!

Random thoughts... hope everyone is well!!!

I'm back on track - I'm a runner again! Have been running pretty consistently for the past month, although only 14 - 24 miles per week. This week I stepped it up a bit, did an 8 mile run yesterday, and will finish at 29 miles for the week! I'm back on track for marathon training! My times seem slow, but nothing I can do about that at the moment, just need to build up the mileage.

This morning I ran 4 miles in 37:37. Definitely not the speed I'd like, but the heat is also an issue, although I've been trying to wake up early in the morning to get the running done in high 60's low 70's for temps. My 8 mile run yesterday was 1:19:52. I would like to stay under 10 mile minutes, for sure.

Yay! Long Beach Marathon, here I come!

3 mile run this morning - 68 - 70 degrees, 29:12
3 mile run this afternoon - 88 degrees, 29:41

My schedule necessitated the two separate, shorter runs, but I'm so glad I did it. :) Eating out tonight, tomorrow I have TONS of errands to run, and Thursday we leave, so I'll be sitting in the car for NINE HOURS that day. I need to get in as many runs as possible before we go, and plan to run at least a bit each day we're there.

I want to come home after our meeting tonight and finish my scrapbook page. I have work to do, too...

I just ran 4 miles in 40:12 in 88 degree heat and WIND. Ugh. My only thought: survival. Wondering how I'm ever going to get back into running - ?? I ran 14 miles last week, 24 the week before, and 14 the week before that. I guess I'm not doing as bad as I thought, but I'm not getting any faster, and I'm not losing any weight, either!

Thursday we leave for Silver City, NM for my sister's wedding! And yes, I am the matron of honor... Which means tiny strapped dress, although fairly flattering. Tight on the bust, and then falls loose but not "pregnant-looking."

The dilemma is not so much what to eat - I can pretty much find low carb food anywhere. The true dilemma is how can I run while there? I'm going to have to force myself to wake up early, because it'll be even hotter there than it is here. But - you know me, I'm SO not a morning person! Been staying up until about 3:00 these days.

And I ramble on...I think I will have some of my sister's wedding cake, but I can go without the rest of whatever.

Poor Eddie has so much work to do! I think he's going to be stressed out the whole time - we're going to be gone for 6 days. I'm wondering if he can bring his computer and work on images.

I'm so excited to see my parents! :D

I almost missed the deadline! Had this one done just last night, took the pic this morning while the lighting was good, and then was out all day working. JUST made it home in time to post!!

I love the accordian flower technique, I think I'd like to try it on a more girly page, so I can actually do some layering and make the flowers look like FLOWERS. I think reducing the fold size would make it a little thinner, although I don't mind a certain amount of bulk. And I only say that because someone else had mentioned that everyone thought they were too bulk - ? I am the Queen of bulk! LOL! It's actually the starfish that's REALLY going to take up a big chunk of scrapbook space. Should I even mention how bad those starfish stunk when I took them out of the plastic baggie??

But yeah, this is one of my favorite scrapbook subjects, of course! I'd love to really hammer out a bunch of Catalina pics from our trip in February. We'll be going to Hawaii in August, and I've barely even touched out pictures from the cruise last summer. :(

This is page one of a two page layout, but I didn't have to finish the other one before the deadline. :) Seriously MUST get back to my "at least 15 minutes a day" goal for scrapbooking...

6 miles today - 58:22

I was running off the sushi we had for lunch. :D And the orange chicken and the salad and the veggie tempura. I LOVE CHOMP SUSHI IN FULLERTON, CA! So much food, I couldn't finish it all! But their sushi is the best - so creative and delicious!

Two meetings today, different times - booked both but didn't get much else done! Went SHOE SHOPPING at Footsies in Anaheim. SURPRISED AND SHOCKED to see all shoes were $5!!! Normally 6/$40 or 3/$15, but this particular store is moving in a month or two, so they are trying to get rid of everything! Woot! Bought 4 pairs for me, and one pair for Abbie. Ironically, they didn't have the strappy sandals I actually went looking for. But THAT'S OK - SO MANY, MANY LOVELY HEELS! However, I then went to Payless, and got 2 pairs - BOGO. 7 pairs of shoes in one day!!!!!!!!

Took two days off of running, ate normally, and gained all the water weight back. :b Doesn't that just figure. Ran 4 miles today in 36:13 - my legs apparently liked those two days off.

I'm trying to scrapbook tonight, but I have so much work to do. I want to try and do even just 15 minutes a day, keep those creative juices flowing. It's so hard to just put off work to do something for myself.

Going to do that now.

And here is all the stuff I got from the Maya Road warehouse sale!! No wonder her stuff is expensive - all those adorable little tins! I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the lunchbox tins! They have chipboard or beads or whatever in them, SO adorable! Some of the things that you can't really see is lots of nice ribbon, and some flourish and border rub ons, and three mini albums, plus a mini album that fits inside the lunchbox, some ADORABLE little crochet/pearl flowers, and the only thing I'm not wild about is that red sequin border stuff, which I got tons of.

Ok, so I was hoping for some inks. I got all this lovely chipboard and I do NOT know what to do with it!
