First off, I want to say congrats to our friends from Church, Tommy and Lenna for baby #2 today. It was scheduled this morning and little Reeves (4yr old) welcomed baby brother, Levi. He was a big boy - 9lbs 9oz. Congrats!
It seems like we're busy, but I suppose we're not that busy. Well, as much as I used to be while in school. I just haven't had much time to read/write blogs. So, here I am wanting to catch up with you all.
I mentioned that I got the wii and my wii fit came in the other day. That sucka said I'm overweight. Of course, I know that - but it sucks to hear it from a skinny chic on the TV telling me. But, more on that later.... I like it so far, but haven't explored it entirely yet. We rented the Diego game from blockbuster for Grace. She likes it, so we may end up buying her one.
I did the CT group ride last week and it went superb. I was in the C group that later became the C+ group, aka "slow"
peeps. There were too many people in the group to begin with and we just split off. Since it was my first group ride, I just hung somewhere in the back for most of the 30ish mile ride. If David doesn't do a last minute tri tomorrow, my friend, Denine and I will go together to do the group ride.
I've had issues with my seat lately, just not feeling comfortable and hurting my girly region after a long time sitting on it. I can't seem to get down in aero for that long while riding the trainer without hurting. So, a girl I work with is on the local ladies cycling team and she hooked me up with 2 of her older seats to at least try out. I think they are made more for the ladies, versus the one I have on my bike, which David had bought for himself but it didn't work out. So, I may be switching that seat out tonight. I did 2 rides the other day on the trainer (35min each - 1 at lunch, 1 at 9pm) and was just very uncomfortable.
Swimming is going okay and my running is suffering. I think I'm just not used to the heat yet. I've trimmed my workouts down to 2 days a week each discipline. Honestly, ya'll as much as you all say I seem to fit it all in, I feel like I've been hit with a brick lately. I need to tone it down a notch so I can breathe a little. With working til 5 daily, a toddler that I want to spend time with, husband training for longer distances, Church obligations, getting our place ready to put on the market etc, etc, I just didn't see how I could do 3 workouts a week/each discipline for the next 20 wks. So, I've switched my plan up and now training for the Oly Aug 2. This will be my A race! All others are just for prep and fun...
I've joined 2 weightloss challenges for the month of June (along with Lisa). One is on BT and the other is Viv/Pokey's challenge. I'm excited! I know I can do it. And I know many of you are shaking your heads for the fact that I've been on here a dozen times talking about my weight. I just know that my weight is limiting my ability to speed up on anything I do and I want to improve! Overall, I'm fit, and I know that, but this is something I NEED to do for Me. Lisa's already talking smack and making it a friendly challenge with me at BT. :-) On both challenges, I think it's based on percentage. It starts Sunday!
Go to Viv's blog if you're interested!
To all the product Ho's out there - (P.O.M and Tayrn first come to mind),I need a new straightening iron. I have rough thick curly hair and I like to straighten it to lighten it up some, cause it's so heavy sometimes. And, I like how it makes me look younger too. :-) I had the Sedu which is a good iron, Fo sho. But, the plug I think decided to croak and it won't turn on anymore, so I just don't want to buy another Sedu. It sucks cause I don't want to drop another Franklin bill + some on one, but if I have to - I will. I am leaning towards the T3 Tourmaline because it also has the wet-to-dry feature. Those of you that straighten your thick hair - would love to hear your opinion.
Alrighty now, I think that's all folks. Time for the weekend!!! Well, after 6 more hrs of work. I have an hr swim tonight - Blah. I should be able to get in 2800yds. That's a LOT of counting.
A few pics...
Grace and friend, Maddi last friday night. Grace ADORES her. They had their first sleepover last weekend.
If anyone is interested in seeing how I looked as a kid, this is it! summer dress, stringy hair hanging all over the place. One thing is different though - I never wore shoes as a kid - just didn't like them.
Our princess Grace - trying out her new princess dress she will be wearing to a birthday tea party next month. She puts that thing on daily now.
Have a WONDERFUL weekend ya'll!
