Massively busy week Spark People, so I'm not sure how much I'll be around. This seems a bit counter intuitive as I really do need to stay focused and motivated too.

What's going on? There's all the usual plus for the first time in a very, very long time I'm throwing a party. Not just any old party but an extravagant Speakeasy shindig, which has actually involved building a 'speakeasy' type thing with leftover MDF from a friend's kitchen renovation. I tell you what it's starting to look pretty swanky. There's no particular reason behind it, but who needs a reason to dress up and drink cocktails!

So, in between the regular job, and the added painting, wall papering, art and crafting, and making gallons of Manhattens, I'm trying frantically to keep to my fitness schedule. There are some modifications; Kettlebells will have to be on Wednesday this week, zumba one's been off because of the bank holiday but there's still the second class (also on Wednesday -argh!), I've still time for running and I will do Ripped in 30, I will... though I didn't yesterday due being absolutely cream crackered.

It doesn't help that I had an incredibly bad weekend eating-wise, worse one since April, it started due to stress but its continuation was fueled with nothing but gluttony. Nothing I can do about that now except chalk up some lessons and move on.

Right, I'll end it there as I have to go pick up supplies. See you all on the flip side.

    I visited one in London which was much the same; amazing drinks, but blood chilling prices. And they were tiny too!

    I wanna go to a Speakeasy party! ...There's a speakeasy-themed bar in Chicago which is really cool-looking, but in order to like it, one must be into $12 cocktails.
