Annual Check-up: I'm finally over the hill!
I had my annual physical yesterday and got all my lab work back. It's official: I'm in menopause! Now don't hate me fellow older women who had horrible time in peri-menopause, but I barely noticed. Part of that is that I have a Mirena IUD so no monthly even...

Will Swim for Food: Am I Crazy?
Earlier in the Fall, I did a crazy thing. I signed up for Will Swim for Food . This annual event raises money for local food banks. The idea is that we swim around the Santa Clara Wharf in the dead of winter in water with a temp of anywhere from 47 to 57 ° ...

Ran my first SVTT this morning. Results aren't what I hoped for but not too shabby.

I've been saying this ever since I had WLS surgery! I'm glad to see a doctor saying it too. It definitely corresponds to my personal experience pre-op of losing weight and finding my body fighting me every step of the way (and succeeding) to get back up to my old weight vs. post-op where my body has a new set point and it does everything it can to stay here. I'm almost 6 years out from sleeve surgery and even when I have periods of stress or being on a weight-gaining medicine, eventually everything rights itself and I go right back to 120-125 pounds.

Dip 'n Dash #1: Bottom Podium for the Win!
With the cancellation of the Splash 'n Dash race series due to the drought, there was a big hole in my training schedule. I love that series and miss it a lot. However, there is the Dip 'n Dash series down in Santa Cruz as an alternative. Its only drawback ...

We have 3 cats and have never been attacked by zombies. So clearly, it works.

Has it really been six years since surgery?
I was sitting here thinking.. hey, my six year anniversary is coming up. I should start thinking about a blog post. Should I do another cottage cheese test? Take measurements? What day does it fall on again? And then I realized it was three days ago. I neve...

My experience with giving up dairy
These days it seems like everyone is giving up dairy for one reason or another. As someone who has experienced some mild lactose intolerance, especially as I get older, it's definitely something I've considered doing. Then a few months ago I went through a ...

Finding my "lane"
I love Wednesday. It's my favorite day of the week! Mostly because it's swim day. There's something magical about swimming to me. I like getting into a rhythm and then concentrating on some little aspect of my form until it's so automatic I don't have to co...

Time for two lunches?
When I was training for an Ironman, I got the point where I was in danger of dipping below 110 pounds and I really didn't want that. So I started putting a banana into my morning protein shake and eating two lunches a day. If I didn't do that, I would snack...
