Day 4

Friday, July 11, 2008

emoticon emoticon emoticon

Ok... Fish, Bird, Turtle = Swim, Bike, Run... LOL!

I am hoping to finish strong tomorrow and run a little faster than a turtle, but I have to admit... Running is not my strong suit in the tri. I LOVE to run, but I am just not really a FAST runner. I will check in tomorrow definitely and post how my tri went. The good, the bad, the ugly, and/or the WONDERFUL!!! I really have "happy thoughts" and am looking forward to it, but I must admit that I am very nervous. First one since... seriously... 4 years ago!!! And... I've had a lingering knee injury that I've recently been going to the chiropractor for.

Day 4 has been wonderful. It's a rest day, and I have been so stir crazy and wanting to run / bike / do SOMETHING. I walked the dog and did a short run to test out my new shoe laces.

My in-laws are in town from Michigan and that's always LOADS of fun!

I am hoping to jump in bed shortly and call it a day. Got to rise and shine about 4:45 and hit the road.



Day 3

Thursday, July 10, 2008


So... my titles are so creative I know, I know. And... there is no emoticon with a watermelon. I've really enjoyed eating the watermelon my mother forced me to take home from our family BBQ. It's been really yummy!

Day 3... has been wonderful! I've enjoyed passing the time emailing my new SP friends or posting or reading blogs. I am not lying when I say I would have been out shopping and spending money that I really don't have. I haven't thought too much about food which is a wonderful thing! I have however been really stressing over my excercise here's why:

On Saturday, I am doing the Echo triathlon and it's a little longer than most of the tri's I've done in the past. It's a mile swim, 25 mile bike, 6.2 mile run. And... I am freakn' dreading it. Then... my brother convinced me to sign up for the Elite group. LMAO!!! I haven't even done a tri in a long time. But... the good thing is that the top 5 take home $. So... if I didn't sign up for elite and finished in the top 5, I would have been bummed out! Although now I feel pressured to really push myself, and I've had somewhat of a knee injury. We'll just see... HAPPY THOUGHTS, HAPPY THOUGHTS! It will be over in less than 38 hours and counting...

So... I really enjoy this sparkpeople place. So many wonderful people I think I'll Keep Comin' Back!!!



Day 2

Wednesday, July 09, 2008

I really like this place. Day 2 has been great. I actually love earning points by reading the articles. That's been very motivating. I have read many people's spark pages, and I absolutely love learning so much about others and knowing that I am TOTALLY not alone in this body image / eating healthy / living life to the fullest battle. Hopefully the motivation lives on... PS... 3 days until my Echo Olympic Triathlon! emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Best of luck to you on your triathlon! How awesome! I want to say I'm amazed at your successful weightloss! The photos are impressive! Like two totally different women. You are gorgeous and what an amazing inspiration! Makes me more excited to see what I'll look like with sixty less pounds holding me down! Thank you for the kind words about my babies. I do agree, they are adorable.

Day 1

Tuesday, July 08, 2008

First day on sparkpeople. I've found it VERY motivating, and I am so excited to meet new people and gain inspiration from others. I love the sparkpoints. They are fun. I've gotten a little frustrated trying to figure things out. I don't know how to add fitness goals to earn points. LOL! Hopefully I can continue to forgive myself if I don't have "perfect" eating days and enjoy the lifelong journey to a healthy life.
