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 about 35 of that, and I'm working to lose 35 more.

My Goals:
In April 2013 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.

My Program:
Eat real food.

Move! Work! And never underestimate the value of a rest day.

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!

I've found that following Matt Fitzgerald's point of view about diet quality has improved my diet and made it easier to stay within daily calorie ranges.

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.

Thank you for your words of encouragement on my activity feed! I have been floundering a bit lately. I thought of you today, though, when I ended up enjoying a chore I had dreaded ... riding the bikes over to the gas station to get air for the tires ...

Saw you comment on the blog (about the bucket thingy).

With shoes ... do you have those elastic laces? Man ... they make putting your shoes on go fast. (I mean, ok...coming out the water you'll still have to deal with socks which is kinda sucky) ... but the elastic laces ... those work. (I got some that cost about $12 ... so not at all spendy.)

Bike shoes ... those take me a bit, as I don't have ones with pure velcro ... and shoes are way more expensive than the elastic laces grrrr.
