I have to get my teeth cleaned today. I love the feeling when it is all done. I'm going to meet a friend for coffee before. Yay!!

Ok. I did not get running yesterday. By the time it was time to go, it was too hot and I ended up cycling for 1.25 hours and swimming for 30 minutes. I was a bit freaked out, because I have this race coming up, and then I remembered.....

All of my friends that signed up for the race are walking it, so I'm running alone. Since my goal is always just to finish, I'm not going to freak out. I was still plenty active. Keeping daughter company is putting a strain on my regular exercise. It will be much easier to follow my own schedule when triathlon competition is over. Which is June 30. I have two races in September. The race at the end of September (Melissa's) is one that I will have a time goal for. I want to better my time from the last time I ran it.

Anyhow, moving on.

The chicken & dumplings turned out great! Husband & daughter both loved it, and we ate the entire head of cauliflower! Easy peasy on pts also, since the dumplings were made out of Pillsbury bun dough. They puff up nice.

Fitness for today is a swim later this morning and a walk tonight with the group that is doing the race with me. They are fast walkers. We are going to do the hill next to the Club. It should be challenging. And it will count towards my challenge. Daughter is going to cycle while I walk, I think.

Not much else going on. We watched a billion episodes of Gene Simmons Family Jewels last night. It was fun.

Have a healthy day bloggers!!

PS: Sparky - I'm not far enough along with my swimming to swim in a natural body of water. I am just now able to get over the deep end of the pool without panicking....


  1. Even though you aren't getting the running in you are very active and getting a lot of really good exercise. So, good for you.

  2. I love the super clean feeling after the dentist!! It's amazing!
