The hardest part of training
Tonight I tried swimming in my wetsuit for only the second time. I'm afraid it is a little bit too small, because getting the thing on is such a project. It feels constricting. I had a lot of complaining going on inside my head about how much better I would...

Fit by Fitbloggin': Week 5, there was no Week 4
Working with my weight coach has really helped me to get back on the tracking without getting down on myself. I am loving working just with Lose It! and not bothering with the Weight Watchers app. The only thing really keeping me in WW are the meetings with...

Check-in: In a stuck place
I put up a snarky blog post this morning, thought the better of it, and took it down. I am feeling stuck in a lot of ways right now.  I got a cold which kept me from some of my workouts, and got stuck in a long work meeting, which took out another one. Weig...

An interesting paradox
Note: This post contains Amazon Affiliate Links.  My employer-sponsored healthcare plan is going to give me a free Fitbit Charge  if I submit to a short screening and take an online assessment. Since most of the blood tests (triglycerides, glucose, choleste...

Fit by FItbloggin' Week 3: Late but some good news
 I have good news and bad news. The bad news is that last week was so crazy that I hardly tracked at all. The good news is that I lost some weight anyway, both on my home scale yesterday and at Weight Watchers last Wednesday. I still have a long way to goal...

Fit by Fitbloggin' Progress Report Week 2: Exhaustion
Yesterday's post was a pretty good indication of how I'm feeling lately. The way-below-zero temps we have been having have made it hard to get outside to exercise, which really impacts my mood. I feel like a mole person. My allergies have really flared up, ...

Fit by Fitbloggin' update: Getting real
Last night I had guest speakers in my class: A married couple where one partner is a creative writer who works with a nonprofit to bring writing to inner-city classrooms, and a high-level corporate executive. The wife was the corporate exec, and she brought...

What I did this week: Two hours short
This was supposed to be a 12-hour training week, but I missed three workouts, so it was only a 10-hour week. Today's workouts were almost half of the week. I feel tired, but also good about what I was able to accomplish. Next week is an easy week -- only 6 ...

Strategic planning: I'll save you the time
I attended a strategic planning session yesterday. Actually, in theory, I helped lead the session, but mostly I was there as a flunkie. I was dumb enough to think that this session might make a difference and help me get reenergized. Instead I left with a m...

Triathlon training: Bad week, good week
Last week I was dealing with a possible eye infection and some serious work-related stress, so as you can see, my training week was a wreck. The gray box is a workout I did that was unplanned, all the orange ones are missed workouts, and the green boxes wer...

New Enell Color Alert: Raspberry Zest!
It finally is launched, and it's lovely: The latest Enell offering is bold and beautiful. It almost seems a shame to cover it up. As an Enell Ambassador, I just got this gorgeous bra in the mail a couple of weeks ago and I have been waiting to wear it until...

Great training week spoiled
I started to feel bad around 2:00 yesterday. My throat hurt, no matter how much I tried to drink water. My energy was starting to crash. I thought it was my long bike ride yesterday, but in the middle of my Valentine's Day dinner, I wanted to fall asleep. I...
