Sunday, January 29, 2012      2 comments

Its all JennSwims and DogLady13s fault. They both posted at how they did triathlons...and they made it seem....achievable. Not to be one of the first finishers of course, but to be able to look someone in the eye and say: "Yes, I completed a t... Read more
Shortest trainer: "Mommy get your exercise!"
Thursday, January 26, 2012      4 comments

I am lucky enough that Child attends a preschool exactly one block from our house. Which means we walk to school every day. Last year's snowy winter meant a couple days he got to SLED to school; totally Da Bomb if you're his age. So late... Read more

I'm a reasonably healthy eater, but my problem has *always* been volume/portion control. So one of the things I'm concentrating on for Phase 2 is WHAT I am eating and how much. I asked for a scale for my birthday and have 2 sets of measuring c... Read more
