This is the tutu I made for tutu Tuesday. I cut the tulle in alternating lengths to give it some depth. I may cut the long ones shorter but I am not sure yet. It was a lot more work than I thought it would be but I am happy with the results. Now I need to start on the jacket.

I didn't just fall off the workout wagon; I fell of and it rolled over me and left my lifeless body in the muddy trail. I have finally picked up my lazy bones and chased the wagon down and very ungracefully swung my leg over and pulled myself back onto that damn workout wagon. I think I must have smacked my junk when I swung aboard because everything hurts. Of course that may just be that I have been a slug for the last few months. I can tell you one thing for sure; it is like starting all over again. UGH! The worst thing is that I have nobody to blame except myself. I can make excuse after excuse but really it all comes down to the fact that I sat down on my fat butt and let the lazy useless side take control. OK, enough of that. The good news is that I am back at it and rebuilding what has been lost. It will be a tough battle but I will keep at it and get faster and stronger. I have a ½ marathon (my first) to run mid-March and a 70.3 (also my first) to finish mid-August. It is time to get serious and get the eating under control and the workouts focused and regular. Good-bye fast foods and sodas. I don't know why I let you back in my life but you are gone again.
I even managed to wake up early this morning and get my slow run in. It sucks so bad to wake up early but it is so awesome to be done with your workout before the sun comes up. The run was rough. I was never a fast or even medium speed runner. Today my legs were very vocal about how little I have used them over the past few months. My aerobic conditioning is in the toilet; I felt like I was going to die. I knew that I wouldn't since this isn't my first time going through this. I used that knowledge to keep pushing on and suffering through the pain. I did stretch and used my new Stick rolled (thanks mom and dad). I just have to keep doing these morning workouts and they will become routine. That is what I need is a good routine. Plus if I do morning workouts I can do double workouts again.

It was a great Christmas morning and I loved watching my nieces open their gifts. I received some excellent gifts (thanks everyone) too. Plus the view of the pond is nice while drinking coffee. Merry Christmas everyone!

What the?!?!?! It was too late, I was caught in the neon glow of sugary goodness. Delicious Oreos with neon ORANGE cream filling.
I love things that are orange. I love delicious chocolatey Oreos. Combining the two creates something that I could not walk away from. I had to let a package jump into my cart and join me in the car ride home. I was able to ignore the siren song of the fantastic treats last night. I thought about inviting people over so that I wouldn't be tempted to eat the whole pack on my own. I almost did it but the thought of giving away such treasures was too much to bear. I resigned myself to the knowledge that it is me against the black and orange temptresses in their little plastic house. The key is to
