Now that the fundraising is pretty much over (although you can still donate through the end of this month)I want to get back into the habit of posting here.
I finished my traiathlon! you can see the race report at
I'm still training - I've a few other triathlons lined up for the summer and I'm really excited about them now that I have this one under my belt.
But the big deal here - on this blog is about losing weight... wanna know how I did with that?
Well, as of right now I'm down to 228.8!
last week I hit the gym and did resistance training all five days!
I also got in two runs, two bike rides and went hiking for 3+ miles on Saturday.
Life is feeling really good right now.
My weigh in day is Saturday and I was 230.2 on 4/11
This week plan is:
5 days of weight training
3 days of running
3 days of swimming
3 days of biking
this morning was chest and MAN have I lost a lot of strength :( I only hope it'll come back fast
Incline Bench Press: 3 x (95 x 10)
Flat Bench Press: 3 x (95 x 10)
Decline Bench Press: 3 x (85 x 10)
after that I jumped on the treadmill and did interval training
Basically I warm-up at 3 MPR for two minutes then bump it up .2 MPR each minute until 5 MPR, run at 5 MPR for 2 minutes and then drop back to 3.2 and start up again. I did that until I hit 2 miles (30:11)
I was hoping to get a swim in today as well but that doesn't look like it's going to happen so it'll have to wait until tomorrow.
Food is 100% on plan today and I see no reason for it not to stay that way!
Oh yeah - almost forgot: Goal for Saturday is 227.8!
