Tri training

This triathlon is approaching very quickly and I am so totally not ready for it. I think I've managed to go running twice and swimming about three times in the 8 weeks of training I'm supposed to be doing. Yeah, right. And my first tri is about 5 weeks away. Ay ay ay. I'm so not ready for this. In fact, I don't think I could run three miles, let alone six in June. Time to ramp it up and get my butt into shape!

It's just so hard to find the motivation to workout EVERY SINGLE DAY! When I get a nice workout in one day, I feel like I'm set for at least a day of rest. But nope. That's not the case at all with these tris. I can't turn back time so I guess all I can really do is start today and get some runs and swims in.

So off to the pool I go. Maybe.

There we go

New template is up. I like how it's so clean and blue and refreshing. Yay!

I say this every time

Obviously I haven't been around much on here posting and all that. In fact, you can safely say I fell off the wagon hard-core. I haven't been tracking my food, I've been drinking too much beer, and I go out to eat WAY too much. Most importantly, I've done NOTHING for my triathlon training. So screwed...

I did buy a road bike a couple weeks ago and have been taking it out every day that it's not raining. In that respect, there's exercise happening. But, there's no breakfast ever, and rarely do I cook something nutritious. It seems like this weight-loss business is an all-or-nothing kind of thing for me. I either log my food religiously, plan out every meal, and stay away from snacks. OR I go back to my previous lifestyle. And this usually happens after I've lost a few pounds. I can never get past the 10-lb lost mark. Hmf.

So I begin anew. Maybe a new blog template will help :)
