Man, did I need my Tim's this morning!!

mmm, I woke up jonesing for my coffee today. I actually had a good night sleep last night, but I think that is because I took a couple of Advil before bed. I took those because I was so sore from all of my hard work yesterday. In the end, I did the following:

1) 60 minutes of personal training where the trainer did, in fact, torture me with the tubing. In fact, we went through 1/2 the routine, and then she said "now we do it all again". It was ALL I could do to not cry - I was so spent. I made it through though.

2) 60 minutes on the bike (with daughter) at the Club where I rode 21.06 miles. You should have seen me try to walk when I got off to get the disinfectant spray for the bike. I looked like I had consumed a bottle of vodka!!

3) 90 minute walk home FROM the Club (with daughter). We had a break in the rain and by the time we were going home, the sun was shining and it was warm. And, it turns out there is a lovely view from the brand new bike path that we took. And, it also turns out that we live exactly 8k from our Club.

My feet are tender today. Daughter has me doing another hour of cycling and an hour of swimming with her today. This triathlon challenge is going to be the death of me. I told husband last night that he needs to help me keep her company for this challenge. I'm going to end up with an injury, and I really don't think this much activity is necessary.

Well, I don't have much else. Mostly this weekend my little family will be working away at triathlon challenge hours. I have to tally up my hours for my Tigerlilly challenge. Phew - I'm challenged out!!

Caribbean Chicken with Creamy Avocado Sauce is on the menu tonight with grilled veggies. It is from my new recipe book. Can't wait. The only change I made to the recipe is that I substituted thighs for breast. Only adds a pt and it was way cheaper.

Have a healthy day bloggers!!


  1. Watch those feet! Your feet are the boss of you and can shut you down. At least that is how it is for me. I hope my daughter wants to work out with me when she is older. That is really cool.

  2. That is a LOT of activity! Good for you!

  3. WoW! That is a lot of activity. Be careful of those feet though.

  4. Sounds like you should have entered a triathlon since you are essentially getting the prep time for it :o) Sure hope hubby shares some of it with you this weekend.

    Have a good one.
