Enough Already...

I know you are all tired of hearing the weight talk, but too bad. I have more to say. I started off this month with a goal to lose 10lbs for the month. I know a lofty goal but I signed up for Quadrathon's Worth the Weight Challenge and I wanted to do well. I am competitive with myself by nature. I like having goals even if I don't meet them it motivates me. So the challenge ends this Sunday and drum roll..... Right now after starting the WOE I am only 1lb from making the 10lb mark for the month. I am super excited. Now I just have to keep up the momentum till Sunday. I think I can... I think I can....I know I can. 
On another note: Went to meet my trainer last night at 8pm, had the time down wrong. I arrived at 7:40pm (early) for what I thought was an 8pm appointment, ended 7:40pm (late) for a 7pm appointment. Oooops! So I talked to Nina (my trainer) for a few minutes. She actually told me my face looked thinner. Yet another spot those pounds are coming from. After our chat I headed over to the treadmill for a nice 2.5 mile jog/walk. Felt pretty good. Once I got home though, Boy was I sore. Soaked in a salty tub and man do I feel better this morning. 

One final thing I promise. This morning at 6:30am my cell phone goes off with a text message. It is my buddy Josh Reno telling me that they opened some more spots for the Try Andy's Tri. Got mixed feelings cause 1. I know he is counting on me to do it. 2. He has been training and I have been slacking. 3. Did I say I have been slacking. So after a guilt trip of my own I am not going to pass up the opportunity to sign up. Now I have to get my butt in gear. Cause I have a little over a month to get ready. Any body got any crash Sprint Triathlon training plans for a slow poke.

10lbs! I wish I could lose 10lbs. I am definitely at a plateau, a plateau I have been at for about 10 years. Oh well.
Great job, girl! Keep it up!
