I am a MANIAC! Not sure whether or not I've mentioned here that I'm in training for my first triathlon. Well, I am. And in preparation for it, I signed up for weekly swimming lessons at the local high school. What I didn't know was that these lessons were designed for people who are already decent swimmers, because they consist of 90 minutes straight of HARD swimming. The good news is, I'm ready for the half-mile swim that is the first event of the triathlon. The bad news is...well, there's not really any bad news, except that I AM SORE!!!

It's a good sore, though, and I have to admit I am really proud of myself. I am an athlete, for REAL! I've still been really tired lately for some reason - I'm assuming Aunt Flow is going to show up on my doorstep any day now. I did muscle my way through Tony's leg workout today, so I'm proud of myself for that. I even did the cardio part of the CRIT and given how tired I have been, that's no small feat.

Tony approved a new snack for me at night - an apple with peanut butter - so I am hopeful that I'm going to really start to see some movement now on the scale. I'm SO ready to be in the 150s, I cannot even begin to explain. I haven't seen 150-something since before I GOT MARRIED! Unreal. And I should see it within the month, if all continues to go well and I keep my mouth away from things it don't belong near.

Anyway, friends. Thanks for being on this journey with me. I cannot wait to post the pictures of the triathlon in just a week and a half!!!

Tomorrow is Amelia's appointment to get her cast changed. We should get an idea of how her legs are responding to the surgery, get the results of her biopsy and hopefully get a date for when she gets the cast OFF! YAY!

Wow - I have suddenly hit the wall. Time for bed, all. Good night!
