Okay. Have you checked out my SkinnyR graph lately? I’ve lost over 40 pounds since starting it! I feel great, and I love not fitting into my clothes – because they’re too big! It’s amazing. I never thought I’d like not fitting into my clothes – but that was because I’ve never been too small for them! I’m currently at 278.8 and losing. In January of ’06 I weighed the most I ever have – 327. So, I’ve lost a total of 48.2 pounds. Most of it is due to Weight Watchers. Thank you, eflexgroup, for providing this benefit! It’s awesome working for a company that does things like this for its employees.
After speaking with my uncle, I think I have decided on a triathlon. It’s in Pewaukee, WI on July 15th. It consists of a 1/4 mile swim (I can do that!), 15 mile bike ride (I might be able to do that!), and a 5k / 3.1 mile run (can’t do that yet!). All pretty short distances, and I’m excited for it. The event’s web site is here.
I also received a Polar heart rate monitor for Christmas (awesome), and my plan is to start looking and put a used bike on layaway in the next couple months. That should be fun and exciting.
Well, I’ve got some direction now. Now all I need to do is ramp up the training again. Swimming & running have been neglected this last month. We’ll see how I can get back to those. Swimming should be pretty easy. Running … in the cold … brrrrr! I’m not so sure about. Perhaps I can do it.
