Me: I think that I can get down to like 215 by 7/11…which would be way easier to race with. Stend: Absolutely. Plus you’ll have so much muscles. Me: I was 222 my first tri. Stend: I don’t think you should even focus on the numbers. Just get that heart rate used to long activity and push yourself … Continue reading

Bourbon and Barbells

Bourbon and Barbells

Bourbon and barbells. It has a ring, right? I’ve started doing weights without drinking, too! I know, I know. It’s terrible. No, not that I stopped drinking while doing weights, but that I’d become a cardio queen. Looking back, it really would have helped my cycling times in the Triathlons. I do at some point plan … Continue reading

“It made me feel weird.”

“It made me feel weird.”

My best friend read my This Is Part Of It post and told me it made her feel weird. Weird? Seriously. WTF? That was poetic and emotional and raw. Whatever. It didn’t settle well with me. Clearly. So, I pushed her and asked her why it made her feel weird.  She didn’t want to get into it, but … Continue reading

Peachtree City Tri Recap

Peachtree City Tri Recap

I’d been watching the weather report all week and praying to the sweet lord that the rain would hold off. No. Apparently my new thing is racing in the rain. I did the triathlon with my bestie, Alicia. The hotel we stay at is a short bike ride from the course, so no one drives … Continue reading

42 Miler

Sometimes I think I’m crazy. Like I don’t even know who I am anymore. It’s really interesting when I rewind where I was even last year versus where I am now. I am not the same person. I can’t help but laugh at the differences. Last year my husband asked me to do a bike ride … Continue reading

Oh Body…

I lost 4lbs this past week! FOUR! The differences? I cut out high sugar fruit and Bourbon…and kept with my training. Saturday I drank Bourbon but still got up Sunday morning and rode my 10 miles! (Horrah for sticking to training despite a belly full of bourbon and 3 hours of sleep. FML.) Regardless, the scale … Continue reading

And So It Begins

Today marks the start of my 2nd season of tri training. I’m training to place in my division this season – hopefully. I compete in the Athena Division which is the fatty girl division. HOWEVER – it’s really not because there’s no height restriction and it’s 150lbs and more. So, someone 6′, 150lbs and all … Continue reading

Oh hai Weight Watchers

Back on WW and I’m a happy woman. I forgot how easy WW is and how good I feel on it. I stopped in attempt to save money 2 years ago and thought I’d just “calorie count” on my own. Yeah – fail – didn’t work. I just stopped losing weight. Well, I lost 6.6 … Continue reading

Yahtzee!

I’ll admit it, I lost all motivation throughout the Holidays. I blame most of this on bourbon and a lack of exercise and baking – oh the baking… I mean seriously – I made that. I’m not a huge sweets person, but I taste as I cook and ffs – it adds up. That was … Continue reading

Hardwired Crazy

I met with the counselor and he is such a gem. He basically said my kinda crazy is hard wiring and not issue related. He suggested I see a MD and get on something. My PCP gave me Wellbutrin SR 8 months ago for my crazy, but I talked myself out of taking it. I … Continue reading
