Today I'll be brief - because I usually am anyhow lately.
And that's what today's question is about.
I'm considering moving the blog to Facebook. Basically just updating my status with my progress.
I'm considering this because I really don't have the time to dedicate right now to maintaining the blog how I'd like to.
So I'm wondering from you - my friends.
Would you rather have a blog where I get busy and rarely update, but I'll keep trying to update more and more and be as detailed as possible?
Or would you rather follow me on Facebook and see more frequent updates, with shorter content?

I'm keeping track with the Galloway training program - having done 2.11 m last weekend and keeping up with the 30 minute maintenance run/walks twice a week. The days are sometimes different (I tend to do my long distance on Sunday) - but I'm keeping with the program. I tend to do a 10s run to a 1:50 walk right now - and find it's comfortable, challenging, but not overpowering.
Sadly I can't tell you how things are going on the weight loss competition, or else I violate the rules. If you're interested and you know how to get ahold of me off-blog - feel free to ask. :)
Sorry I haven't been updating - but I've been SUPER busy getting ready for this years Pacific Northwest Mouse Meet - it's coming up on August 4. Tons of videos to produce, magic to practice, etc.
In any event - I'm feeling fairly good about W&D - a little nervous about Disneyland - but I know I can get through it. And TOTALLY excited about seeing CarsLand.
How're you all doing?

The friends weight loss challenge has officially begun. As such, in compliance with the rules, Amber and I have weighed in this morning, and combined our weights (YIKES). I've removed the Club 8 ticker from the site for now.
I'm sticking with Paleo - Amber with WW.
I'm also doing the Jeff Galloway W&D Training Program - which this week looks like:
T: 30 minutes r/w
Th: 30 minutes r/w
S: 2.0 miles r/w
And yes - I'll be posting - and updating. But now I'm off to work!

I have some interesting updates for you all today.
First - my weight has held steady through July 4. So that's good. Not great. But not bad either.
Second - that may be the last time you hear me mention my weight until the Wine and Dine Half Marathon! Yes. FOUR MONTHS.
Why, you ask?
Last night, at our good friends annual Fourth of July bash, a challenge was solidified.
We have several couples that are now competing (as of Monday the 9th) in a Biggest Loser competition - Amber and I included (which is great! It's a fun way to get us both pushing harder and harder than ever before). The prize? The rest of the couples send you for a night to a nearby resort hotel and casino (and if you have a wee one, they do the babysitting too).
The contest runs from July 9 to Election Day (November whatever it is). About 4 months.
There are rules, though.
1) We don't talk about our weight loss numbers in public or with the other couples. We don't want anyones success or lack there of to alter another competitor's resolve. They've asked me not to post my weight on the blog during the challenge.
2) Both team members must lose at least 5% of their body weight during that time to qualify.
But to make matters more fun, Monday is where Galloway's W&D Training Program starts - so I'll be starting that, but also including elliptical workouts on my off days as cross training.
I'm actually quite excited about this - with me doing Paleo (and really having a handle on it now - I've really started reading labels and finding hidden sugars, etc) - and Amber on WW - and this training plan - I see a few things:
1) A good performance in Disneyland on Labor Day Weekend.
2) A strong chance of winning this competition.
3) A great performance at the W&D in November.
