Here come the weekend

and along with it the rain. I'm planning on riding my bike to weigh-in this morning and I wake up to lots and lots of rain. It's stopped but it's still looks threatening and I have to leave in the next 20 minutes or so if I'm going to ride. What to do, what to do?????


Well, it's now 7:00 pm and it's been quite a day. I got my butt moving and rode my bike to weigh-in ( down 2.8 lbs woohoo!!!!). I got totally covered in mud due to the early morning rain but oh well. Then I rode over to the mall for lunch (pizza and pasta salad) and got some great pants and a skirt at Sears (it's official, I'm a size 10). Then rode home. Once I got home I went for a swim with the kids (read dogs) and relaxed out back for awhile. After walking the dogs I did a new belly dancing video. It was fun and very, very different. I've found something I can't master immediately; it's something I will actually have to learn!!! Now, I'm waiting for dinner... Overall…

I'll take success any whay I can.....

Yesterday was my "day off" and I was a little worried about recovering from it; but I did. My neck was bothering me last night so I did yoga when I came home from work. This morning I got right up and got to working out. I don't have time to get my run in, that I will have to do tomorrow.

I'm not sre what is going on with the weight thing. I think I may have lost control, but just a little. The weight is up and I can't seem to get it back down. It's really bothering me. I think it's time to journal. Starting tomorrow I will journal again even though I'm following the Core program. Alright, time to jet off to work......

A day of rest....

Today is my rest day. This is something I have a huge problem with and am determined to conquer it. I can't seem to shake the all or nothing mentality when it comes to exercise. I know it's good practice to take a day off once a week but one day leads to two and to three...... NOT THIS WEEK!!! I'm taking today off and tomorrow I am right back to it. That is my goal.
Saturday morning I will ride my bike to WW and I will get some swimming in over the weekend.
Maybe I'll run a little mini triathalon on Sunday just to see if I can do it. I haven't registered yet for the Mountainman and am really doubting if I'll be ready to do it. I'm thinking of waiting till next year to tackle triathalons. I don't know. Maybe I'll join a group and train for my first one. I don't know; decisions need to be made..........


Another Day.....

Yesterday was pretty good. I got up early enough to get in all my exercise. I also swam last night; it was interesting swimming by the light of the full moon. I think I'll have to move my swims to the weekends since it's starting to get darker earlier.

Sunday after exercising my knees felt "full", I don't know how else to describe it. They felt that way all day and yesterday morning when I woke up they still felt that way a little. After my exercise they felt fine and they felt fine this morning. I was afraid they'd act up again since I did hi-impact aerobics this morning. But, they feel fine.....

It's a bit of a drag to be back to work. I wish I was wealthy enough to not work; but realisticly I'd get bored sooner than later. I did enjoy my week off though. It definetly helped with the attitude. It helps too that it's not too busy here right now. Well, I guess I should get back to work. The rest of the crew will be in soon.....

The journey continues......

So I've decided to give this blog thing a try. I'm trying to lose weight and have been for the past few years and I've gotten some great inspiration from some of the weight loss blogs that are out there. I don't imagine anyone will get some life changing inspiration from my blog; but it might help someone along the way.

I've been on Weight Watcher's for as long as it's been around (at least it feels that way). I've joined about 5 times in the last 13 years. The next to most recent was about 5 1/2 years ago. I lost 50 lbs and feeling incredibly sure of myself - quit. I was away for 2 years and gained some weight back (though not as much as I thought I would). Last October I joined-again- for what I'm determined to be the last time. I have lost 25 lbs to date and have about 15-20 more to go. I am focusing on not only losing weight but trying to regain my athletic ability. I'm training for a triathalon and an Advernture Race.

Okay, this is where i…
