Another phone entry so please bear with me.
Today was a pretty good day aside from the tiredness. Woke up this morning and went to pilates and lake swimming again. further today. Felt good. Much more enjoyable than swimming laps apart fro... Read more

Today was okay. Food wise it was fine but I have been very tored and cranky all day. I got my period yesterday, ... Read more
Day 4 - a heatwave and a new basement
Today was a decent day.
Woke up early this morning to work some more on the main room of the basement to get it livable enough (and safe enough for Max) to hang out down here during our heat wave the next few days. When it gets above 100 ou... Read more
Day 3, a new team and a new recipe!
Today was a good day. I didn't exercise this morning, and I didn't need a nap this afternoon. So that's the culprit. Which means that the multivitamin is working!
I woke up and weighed myself and I was down to 192.6!!!!!!! I can't believe t... Read more
Today was a pretty good day.
I woke up this morning to go to the gym and on a whim I stepped on the scale. I stopped weighing over a month ago because I just kept gaining. When I stopped weighing I was up to 197.4 and I was the same before ... Read more
End of full day 1
I'm feeling pretty good. I think I'm getting into the whole paleo thing because I am seeing it as a challenge. It's hard to find foods that are appetizing without carbs. My go to snacks have been fruit, and I can't do that anymore. It's literall... Read more
Well I had my appointment with the naturopath yesterday. After a lot of talking and looking at my food log for the last month, talking about exercise and a typical day in the life of Leigh, she said that she'd be willing to put money on the fact... Read more
3 weeks to the tri!
3 more weeks til my triathlon! I'm getting excited. Not nervous excited, though. I feel really well prepared. I've been working my a$$ off this summer. I've actually gained weight, though, and haven't lost any inches. That's pretty frustrating. ... Read more
Training + renovations = OUCH
Wow, so the past two weeks have been CA-RAZY. Not only have I ramped up my training for the tri, but husband and I have also been renovating our basement.
Here is an overview of my last 10 days:
Last Monday - 15 mile bike ride with 12... Read more
"I'm going to succeed, but only because I'm crazy enough to tell myself that I can."
I read that on Pinterest today. So true. I have been training kinda crazily, but I'm feeling pretty good. Jan and I went for a 15 mile bike ride yesterday ... Read more
Training, summer, and life
Phew! It's been a busy and stressful couple of weeks!
I'm now out of school for the summer and it's amazing how much stress I didn't realize I was under! Since signing up for the triathlon I'd been eating everything in sight - I think that ... Read more
Am I a runner?
Wow, I never thought I'd even be contemplating this question: Am I a runner?
Today Jan and I did 25 minutes of running without stopping. That's a big deal in itself, but perhaps the bigger deal was the fact that a) I enjoyed it, and 2)I cou... Read more
I. Am. Sore.
Wow. Yesterday's long bike ride was BRUTAL. We had 18 mph head winds going out - we only made it about 6 miles, and then had to turn around. Add to that the fact that I had Max in the trailer behind me which acts like a parachute, and I was DYIN... Read more
The plan for day 2 of extended weekend
Well, MIL comes back today. Which means this is the last day "off" I get for 2 more weeks (woe is me... wink)
ANYWAY. I woke up at 5am and walked (yes walked!) to pilates this morning. She worked us good and then I walked back. Jan and I sc... Read more
Extra training and a BUSY day!
Today was definitely a day of go-go-go! We got up this morning, ate a little breakfast, and by 7:15 we were out for a run with Jan. Running outside is SO DIFFERENT than running on a track! Wow, hills suck. And I was pushing Max in the stroller. ... Read more
