    I'm sorry you're feeling so blah, but I'm glad to hear that's all (not to minimize how stinky it can be!) since I haven't seen/heard too much out of you lately. Keep your head up and move forward, there's nothing you can do about the past aside from apologize and learn.

Have a great week!

Hoedown and Facebook...

Sunday, September 21, 2008

Hi Spark~People Friends...

This is my daughter and I at a hoedown we went to this week. it was really fun! Had a great time.

The other thing that has taken control of me this week is freakn' FACEBOOK! Anyone out there do that? We can be facebook buddies, because I am now addicted to that too. LOL!!!

I actually have gotten in touch again with a lot of friends from my childhood and highschool. IT's kind of freaky and scary after being so secluded and isolated for years. WEIRD!!!

Exercise and nutrition are acutally going miraculously well. I am trying to thank God each and every day for that.

I hope all is well with everyone! Love you guys!!! GIRLS!!!

    Facebook. I hate Facebook; I am always on it!
I like to see what my friends are up to so we use the status updates all the time.

I can be found in FB with my Spark handle.

    Worry not, the "crack"book addiction will pass. Most people I know who fell into it had a month or two of it before it became really, REALLY boring. (My own spin at the end, there.)

I found it to be a great way to reconnect with old acquaintances, friends, etc., but after a while I came to realize that there was a reason why I didn't stay connected with a lot of people. emoticon

    Oh, my
Yes, I am on facebook. :-) It is scarily addicting, so far I have been able to resist the addiction.

    Great pic! The hoedown sounds fun!

I went through an addiction to MySpace last year. We used it to organize our high school reunion, so everyone was on and re-connecting. I'm finally not checking more than once a week or so - I feel like I have my life back!

    Great picture!!!

I'm not addicted to Facebook (yet). I did go on a myspace binge several months ago, but since I found SP I find that here is where I'd rather spend my online time. It *is* very cool to reconnect with all those people after so many years, though.

Have fun and have a fabulous weekend!

    A picture is worth a thousand words . . . You look Fantastic!!! What an inspiration.

Years and years ago I use to scuba dive so I know how challenging those wet suits can be to get into. I use to put mine on in the shower. Our friend use to bring his RV to our scuba dive locations and we would use the shower to put them on and off. I like your idea of a little EVOO . . . slippery but what an accomplishment!

emoticonJob on keeping us inspired!

Ogden Tri... Winner

Saturday, September 13, 2008

Finally... I wrote a big summary about this and it wouldn't upload the photo and erased everything I'd written.

So... Here we go again...

This actually started out AWFUL! I hate my wetsuit! LOL!!! I just felt so clostrophobic, and I should've tried it out a few times first. DUH!!! DUH!!! But... it ended up working out.

When I got out of the water, I tried to take my top (2 piece wetsuit) while my goggles and cap were in my hand. It got stuck. I had a harder time than I thought I would getting it off my legs too. I was so FRUSTRATED!!!

Then, I forgot a little towel to dry off my dirty feet before putting on my bike shoes, forgot to put in my pony tail holder. Had to throw off my sunglasses. Just funny / dumb stuff was happening.

The run was of course tougher than I think it's going to be. The first part was along a road, then it went off on a trail, and I LOVED the trail. It was nice. Although there were a few little steep hills.

But... can you believe it... when all was said and done... Netty crossed the finish line 1st in her division. I will post a few more pictures in my gallery. There is a funny picture of me in my wetsuit.

No Go...

Wednesday, September 10, 2008

So I went to test out my wetsuit and not only did it start raining but the exit to get off was closed and by the time we turned around and started heading to the reservoir I really didn't have time or the desire anymore to test out my wetsuit. Yesterday was the only day I could try it out before Saturday, but it's no big deal. I'll just have to test it out on Saturday. The hard part is taking it on and off when I am NOT wet. So... I am sure it will all work out fine.

I am sore and tired. I had my PT last night. Did I mention that my husband and I are doing couples personal training? I can't remember if I posted that or not. Anyway... we are and it's pretty fun and motivating. We did arms / benchpress is what I think I am the most sore from.

    What, you didn't go home and fill up the bathtub? :)

I second the olive oil - or even better, nonstick cooking spray like PAM:)

CALGALFOX 9/10/2008 6:24PM

    I'm sure the wetsuit will be fine. A little olive oil around the wrists and ankles can sometimes help.

My husband and I have a personal trainer who is also our son. It's the greatest thing ever. My son is an awesome athlete and turns out, an awesome trainer as well. He has designed weightlifting programs for us and the three of us go to the gym together every morning. I hope you two have as much fun with this as we're having.
