Checking in...

Training has been going well, although I have been slacking on the swim. I think it is because I don't have any tri events until September, so I don't feel the urgency. However, September is going to be ugly if I don't get it in check. Weight wise, I have had success. Seven years ago I hit my weight watchers goal and stayed at 140-143lb which is good for my height. However, the past year I was more like 146-149lb and even though that is just a few pounds, I couldn't get a grip on it. I put a sign in our family snack cabinet that said simply "stop snacking". My kids laughed at me, but every time I have gone to roam and graze I open that cabinet, see the sign and stop. Went to weight watchers today to weigh in and low and behold I am at 140.8lbs!!!! I guess my sign wasn't so silly!!!!

Checking back in

It has been quite some time since I updated this blog. I am still training consistently and am planning on a few early season 5k's followed by 2 sprint tri's and the local half marathon in October. I recently had to take 2 separate weeks off from running and biking due to varicose vein procedures and realized how much I need the activity for my stress relief and sanity. I found myself short tempered and cranky. Not good for the kids, my hubby or me.
I am looking forward to doing one of the color me rad series of 5k's in late May. A few friends are doing it too along with my daughter and it sounds like a great time.
My major decision for the year is whether or not to do the Disney 1/2 in January. My parents have said they would take the kids, but I worry about the kids being too much as my parents get older and the cost of Disney being too much if we are planning a Disney cruise next summer. Ah...decisions, decisions.....
