Kim vs. The Couch

I'm still trying to lose all the weight I gained since I graduated from college in 2002 (at age 36). At my heaviest, I was about 210 pounds. I've lost almost 30 of that, and I'm working to lose 20 more.

My Goals:
Last April I made a big commitment: I will celebrate my 50th birthday in September 2015 by completing an Olympic-distance triathlon. My blog is mostly about training & maintaining motivation. Because I have two years to do this, I am taking it slow. (I am a HillSlug, so slow is my favorite speed!)

My Program:
I'm tracking what I eat and the exercise I get. Structured diets, even Weight Watchers, run counter to my personality. I weigh myself daily, so I know when I'm getting off track.

Personal Information:
Born & raised in Seattle. Joined the US Coast Guard at 18. Bounced around a lot for the next twelve years, including a few more years in Seattle. Moved backed to Washington in 1996 to a rural area of Western Washington (the wet part). Moved to Eastern Washington in 2000, and I fell in love with this side of the Cascade Mountains. We currently live in the Tri-Cities. It's a brush steppe, but the climate is very similar to a high desert: cold in the winter, hot in the summer, lots of sun, not much rain, lots of wind, very little humidity.

Other Information:
I have very little self-control when it comes to food. I can always justify eating that extra snack - and then I regret it!

Although I love to sleep and I could spend 9-10 hours in bed everyday, I'm naturally kind of fidgity. I like to keep myself in motion. I find it difficult to sit for more than an hour. Since I work at a desk job, I'm always up & walking around.

It was a fight to keep it from encroaching on the phone line, but I kept it trimmed down. They unfortunately have a right-of-way and can do it.

We have a pergola in the backyard, from which the swing hung, and it was covered in wisteria. But because it is under the power line, two years ago the power company came in and poisoned my wisteria without my knowledge. It's sort of coming back, but I'm not sure I should let it, since it will only cause them to come along and repeat the poisoning.

The carpet of purple flowers on the brush steppe sounds gorgeous!

Doc hasn't cleared me yet, but at the hospital he said I could resume training until I saw him again, as long as I didn't overdo it. Felt good today, so I went for a run after the bike ride.
