Week Ending 2-10-2013 Accountability Blog


Wednesday, February 13, 2013

On Sunday, February 10, I participated in my 3rd indoor triathlon. I have 2 more indoor triathlons to go. My totals were very close to the last race, but not better. My distance for race #2 was 8.733 miles. The distance for race #3 was 8.552. Since this is a triathlon series, they combine the scores. I'm not doing bad for an old lady - still beating the distances for women a few decades younger than me. But, I'm not in the top 3 for the money. This particular series only pays out for the top 3 overall - regardless of age. Where is the respect for the elderly these days?

As you can see from my Weekly Progress food log below, I carbo loaded the night before the race -- and it looks like I was carbo loading before that, too. Gotta get a grip on my food. I ate garlic bread as part of my carbo load along with my pasta - and I kept burping garlic during the race. Note to self - no garlic bread the night before a race.



Not surprising, my weight went up a bit this week - 152.0 -- up 0.4 pounds. Thank goodness for Lent and fasting! Since my New Year's resolution to get 6 hours of sleep nightly isn't happening often enough, I set my intention for Lent to get offline at 10pm and spend some time in prayer and meditation before bed. That should get me closer to getting 6 hours of sleep.

Enjoy your week.

February 2013 accountability goals --
1) - Exercise at least 30 minutes/day 6 days/week. Per the book, "Younger Next Year for Women," I am going to shoot for 6 days a week of exercise - 2 days of strength training (I'm taking a strength training class) and 4 days of aerobic exercise, mostly treadmill, elliptical, or online videos at this time of year.
2) - Track my food and limit my calories to less than 1800 per day. Goal weight is 145 pounds by end of 2013. I started 2013 at 153.8.
3) - Sleep 6+ hours per night. Stop Sparking by 10pm. The number of hours that I sleep is directly related to how late I am Sparking/Facebooking.
4) - Eat 1 fruit and 4 veggies per day.
5) - Drink 8+ glasses of water daily.

    I just wanna punch anyone who labels you as old! Of course, I'd be punching them for calling me old as well, but it sounds much more righteous to be defending anothers integrity!

You are so amazing!

    Well, if it was up to me, I would give you all the money! You are doing great! So proud of you and your great physical accomplishment. Don't make me call you! Lol. I already broke my first day of lent, a friend texted me when we were traveling today and by the time I got Tim he was already in church, so I had NO choice but to text the reply back. I'll do better. I am sure that you will too!
Have a Blessed week!
