Yesterday I booked a little pre-Birthday beach vacation – which will start on Feb 16….and while that sounds wonderful, well there is one problem. I can’t FIT in my SHORTS. I will not go buy new things, so I’m going to have to fit in what I have. So I have a major short term goal called “Operation Fit in My Shorts”. Luckily I have almost 6 weeks which should be plenty of time to lose 8 to 10 pounds if I am very diligent. I still won’t be where I would like to be, but at least I will be able to fit in my clothes.After making this revelation, I felt I must prepare myself for this new journey. I did so by having a final meal of chips and queso, quesadillas, and, friend ice-cream to top it off. Yes, feel free to judge me, you should. I am sort of pathetic. No wait, totally pathetic. I start my week of traveling to DC. Traveling always makes weight loss super hard, but I am ready. I will be strong and I will conquer!
|This pretty much sums up what I looked like a dinner last night|
To aid myself, I signed up for two new DietBets. One is a 4 week one (there typical program) but the other one is a 6 month one. I’m really excited about that one for the long term accountability!In other news, I signed up with a ladies triathlon team! I am SUPER excited! I went to their meet and greet/spin class on Saturday and just loved it. There are women of all ability levels. There are some who have done an Ironman, and some who just did their first sprint last year. There are fast and slow runners, bikers, and swimmers and they were just so welcoming! I get to work with a coach who will help me develop workouts for my 70.3 in June and train with the group as my schedule allows. I just couldn’t be more excited!
That’s all for now from the Frozen Tundra that is Kansas City. It is currently -9 degrees here, with wind chills of -25! I have literally never seen temperatures this low in Kansas City and I have lived here 15 years. I usually am willing to brave the cold weather to run, but not in this! No way! I did 7 miles on the indoor track yesterday and I have to tell you it was pretty BLAH….but still better than fighting the cold and snow!Happy Swimming, Biking and Running everyone! Stay warm!
