I have been saying that I have big news for you…and I do….
But first I got cooked for…aren’t I ONE lucky girl? Chris is my personal trainer/friend/advice giver. I called him up because I need help with my big decision and he offered to cook me lunch. How sweet is that?
On my way to his house I stopped through the markets and picked up this juice: carrot, celery, ginger, beetroot–AWESOME!
These are the views today from the hill on the way to Chris’ house.
Ohh..I got new shades: What do you think?
I brought over alcohol..because that’s what you do. Since I am gluten intolerant (no beer for this girl) and I didn’t want wine..I wanted some sparkly and amazing. So I got this AWESOME cider.
This is what I brought Chris..what a lucky boy.
I was treated with homemade Chicken/Mushroom/Aspragus Risotto
The an awesome salad w/ avocado/tom/walnuts
During lunch I said to Chris:
‘I want to do a Triathlon next year in February.’
‘Mish, that’s awesome’ he said as he stirred the chicken
‘But there’s three categories and I don’t know if I should do the medium or long length?’
‘Mish, go for the long one. You know that you can do it. Also, you should do a smaller one before the big one in Feb.’ he goes
‘So, you think that I should do the one in three weeks time?‘ I say..with a worried look on my face
I AM thinking GOING to be doing TWO Triathlons!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
First: Pink Triathlon — November 8th– EXACTLY 3 weeks from today!
Since its inception in 2007 The Ramsay Health Care Triathlon Pink Series has seen over 5,000 females cross a Triathlon Pink finish line and has raised over $180,000 for the series charity, the National Breast Cancer Foundation.
My grandmother suffered from Breast Cancer and is my rock. I think that I am going to do the medium amount: 200 meter swim, 6km bike ride, 2 km run. Maybe, I’ll get up to the 300m swim/9km ride/3km run…but we’ll see. 🙂 It will be good for me to start out in a non-competitive situation and do it for my GRANDMA!
Second: Women’s Triathlon — February 28th 2010 — 4 1/1 months from now!!!!
The race categories are as follows:
Race 1: 150m Swim/5km bike/1.5km run–too easy
Race 2: 300m swim/7.5km bike/3km run–this is what my gut says
Race 3: 750m swim/20km bike/5km run–this is what I am shooting for
THIS IS HUGE FOR ME! SERIOUSLY…crazy. I have been dealing with is a TOTAL shift in my mind from this:
I want to lose weight. I am not losing it enough. I can’t seem to stop binging. I hate working out. I am exhausted.
I am now focusing my life on living healthy. Eating in moderation. Stopping when I am full. Making a positive routine around exercise.
I feel free. I pray that all women who battle with weight, find the peace from the negative stuff that plagues so many.
My mind was reeling. I have so much that I need to do:
- get a swimming suit
- bike tires pumped up
- go to the pool
- get a training program
- BELIEVE I WILL AM
After lunch, we headed down to a local beach to SOAK in all of the amazing sun. I sat with my feet in the sand as the boys jumped in the ocean.
I know that I can do these Triathlons. I am going to have a really good think about what I need to get done, look up training programs tonight and search out some Tri blogs 🙂
What is something that you’ve done..that you never thought you’d do?
