When I showed up for my appointment with my personal trainer last night she had a tape measure waiting for me. I was curious to see how much I have lost so far. I am currently down 5.1" and 1.5% body fat. As always I was hoping for more but hey a loss or decrease in size is awesome. Now I just want to continue to melt away. We had a nice workout last night. We raced eachother on the rowing machines twice and I won. I believe it is because I do them more often than she does. She gave me a ton of nutrition info last night for me to read and review. From skimming over it I think it will be very helpful.
After my workout I went shopping for groceries. Bought lots of veggies. Then I went home to cook up a storm and pack lunches. Fun fun. I did get it all done though. So I am off and running for the day.
On another note my buddy and I missed the deadline for signing up for the Try Andy's Tri at the end of October. I am pretty bummed about it but I knew it filled up early and I just kept putting it off to see if my training would get any better. My buddy wants to wait at the store the day before to see if we can buy some packets that don't get picked up. Not sure work wise if I will be able to get away with that one. Unless it falls on one of our Fridays off. There is the Hi Fi Tri a couple of weeks later, but I am not sure that I am ready or could be ready for that one at this point. It is an open water swim, which I have not done before and it is double the bike ride that I am used to doing. Oh and there is a run at the end. So even though the lure of racing with and meeting Viv is a great motivator I just don't know if it is the smart thing to do. On top of all that my hubby will be out of town that weekend so I would have to find someone to watch the little guy. I haven't totally ruled out doing it yet.
