Not a whole lot to report, here...
Monday I swam in the lake with the tri club, then the rest of the week I've done some walks (I think I'm even done with wogging. Lower back hurts too much. We'll see.), a few rides on my Raleigh mountain bike (on the sidewalk, of course) and some yoga last night. I'm feeling a little better about the whole weight thing. You can't really fight biology. So either I continue to fight and get frustrated, or I just continue to eat as healthy as possible, do some kind of physical activity 5-6 times a week, and just go with it.
I had 2 different strangers on 2 different days this week tell me there's no way I look like I'm 6 months pregnant. That was certainly nice to hear after some of the ruder comments I've gotten lately. One of the people has a 4 month old at home and looks fantastic, and CLAIMS she gained 80 pounds with her first and 60+ with her second. ?!?!?!?! That just can't really be good, but hey, she looks fantastic so I guess what do I know? Makes me feel a little bit better about the number I've gained so far.
I've also discovered that the only bras that are really actually somewhat comfortable right now are my sports bras. Woo hoo! This triathlete has plenty of those.
I'm still missing triathlon, but trying to really focus on this new aspect of my life. Tris, I keep reminding myself, ain't goin' nowhere. But I'm still dreaming of future races, and have added my '08 race schedule. It's good to think about the future a little to get my mind off some of the nervousness and scared feelings that come. I wear my Ironman necklace every day and it helps me remember that sometimes things you think are impossible really aren't. The body is an amazing thing.
Tonight, a cookout with some family, and then this weekend I've got some fun stuff planned with friends. And whoa--I turn 30 in less than 2 weeks. That's pretty crazy...too bad I can't test out the new age group until next year! But 30-34, watch out cuz here I come! :)
