Excited for my triathlon!

Saturday, November 23, 2013

So I have been training for this triathlon for about a month now. I am so excited. This is totally doable! I run with my friend for 2 miles with out stopping, I take a cycling class for an hour, then I swim 16 laps at the gym. I am guessing it will take me 2 hours or less to finish it. And it is going to be in Napa! So after I'm done I can go wine tasting, lol. I cant wait and it is still 5 months away!

Training for a Triathlon...

Tuesday, October 22, 2013

So my sister called me and asked me to do a triathlon with her. I said yes with out hesitation. Then I started thinking... I have never done anything like this before. What am I getting myself into? Is this too much for me?
So instead of freaking out about it I decided to go online and start looking up how to train and it calmed all my worries. It seems so much in reach now that I know about it more and what I need to do to train and I've been asking questions at the gym and I'm running with a friend. I'm teaching myself how to swim emoticon better, I'm taking cycling classes. And I feel really good. Now I am excited to see how far I can go. I am looking forward to it. It is 6 months from now. And it is perfect timing because I will be training through the holiday season so hopefully I wont gain weight this year like I normally do every holiday!

Not a good think to do...

Friday, April 26, 2013

I'm tired today. I droped off my car to get a flat fixed then walked to the gym. I worked out for 2 hours then walked back to my car. I drank a protein smoothie from jamba juice on the way back to my car. I got home, did some chores, laundry and dishes then had to run to the store to get stuff I needed with the family. Then I started to feel really shakey. I relized that I didnt eat in 4 hours and I normally eat every 2-3 when I go to the gym. No cooking for me. I had to make an emergency stop to fast food so that I didnt pass out. Note to self... bring a protein bar or shake EVERY WHERE with you so that this doesnt happen again. That scared me. But now that I got some food in my tummy I feel so much better!

    So glad you caught it before it became a big problem! Now that you've determined that you should carry provisions with you, you'll make sure it doesn't happen again.

Lesson learned, great job!!
Thanks for sharing this important tip!

    It helps to carry around a water bottle around at all times, with a good healthy drink in it. Good for you for catching this before it got any worse!

    That is really scary! That is why I always carry around random snacks in my purse

I love my Tuesday workouts!

Wednesday, April 17, 2013

I love the classes they have at the gym on tuesdays. Because I have to work and I have 3 kids my time is kinda crazy, but I still find time to work out. I love to take classes at the gym because I tend to workout harder and longer then if I was working out by myself. But on tuesday nights they have 2 of my favorite classes back to back. Yoga for 1 hour, then Zumba for 1 hour! I normally only take a 1 hour class then go home. But for the last 2 weeks I take the Yoga class first, get all streached out and limber, then take the Zumba class and I get to have fun, shake my bootie, and just dance!

I highly recomend taking classes at the gym if they are offered! Even if you feel like you cant do it, or you are embarrest... Dont wory about it. Everyone is doing it for the same reasons as you. To get healthy!

Having Fun

Friday, April 12, 2013

I am so much better now. I have not wrote a blog in a long time because I was in a bad place emotionally and phsycally. I feel so much better now. I am back to my exercise rutine, I am eating healthy again. i am spending time with family again. I am looking out into the world again. For a good 9-10 months I was in a very bad place emotionally. I had hurt my sholder at work. Some things happenedat work and i was threatned by a customer that she was going to shoot me. I was scared all the time and I withdrew from EVERYONE outside my home. My family told me that they missed me and I just brushed it off because I didnt want to leave the house. I was scared and I felt safe at home. Just to get in the car to take the kids to school was a challange for me. I stoped going to the gym, but still payed for it. All my relationships suffered.

Well guess what!?!??! I have my life back!!!!

I am not scared anymore! I figured that I cant live life in fear, because anything can happen at anytime. So why live life in fear? Live life to it's fullest! I am walking as much as possable. I am going to the gym most days. I am looking out and spending time with my family. I am mending relationships. I am so much happier now. Yes I did gain a little weight while I was depressed, not sure how much, but I think it was about 10-15 lbs but I am not going to let it discourage me. I dont want to weigh myself because I dont want to get mad. I am focusing only on how I feel and how clothes fit me better. I think that is more healthier for me then the scale. I am really excited for this new part of my journey.

I NEVER left sparkpeople. I still logged on everyday. Just to get my points, lol. But I am glad I did. Because look at me know. I am back in full swing!
