Off to California to eat more than I weigh

We leave tomorrow morning for 10 days in California at my Mom's. One of the ways she shows love is by making super yummy treats. My goal is a little bit here and there but no gorging out on any one thing. We do eat alot when we are together as a family. My kids are going to have more treats in the next 10 days than in one month at our house. Dan and I are going to go running every day we can. I can't wait to run with him while grandma watches the kids.

I am still training for the triathalon in September. I need to work on eating less when I work out, not more!!

A sugar-free August anyone??

Hi all, I am going to cut out sugar for the month of August and I was hoping someone would like to join me in this challenge. I have done it before and it really helps with my sugar cravings. The first two weeks are tough but then it gets easier and the results are great. I lose weight and have so much more energy.

Let me know if you want to join and maybe we can all do it together.

Everybody Zumba!!!

Okay, so I know there are quite a few of you who already do this, but I have found that Zumba not only gives a great workout, you have a great time doing it! I'm terrible with sticking to going to Zumba because of clashing schedules with Drew and my mom, but I really want to get back into it!
My mom and I found this place online (actually, thanks to Drew) called Roombita. It's in the plaza next to C-NS High School. One of my co-workers has gone to both this studio in Cicero and the one on Route 57 and says this one is definitely better. I like that I don't have to be a member of a club or a gym (or be a guest) just to go to Zumba.
Though I speak so highly of this class, I still need some motivation to get going on Zumba again (even if I'm only here for one more month). If you're interested in going to the Cicero Zumba studio, Roombita, let me know! Here is her schedule/website:
Penny is really upbeat and is from the Caribbean. She makes it so fun and worth while to be there!

Summer fun?

I was wondering if anyone is still working on their eating habits and physical fitness this summer? I am feeling a little burnt out in my efforts. What do you do to keep going?
But I still want to do that 7 person bike ride on Onon Lake Park...if it ever dries up in July. maybe we should exercise like this??
