Read this While Seated!!

I have two pieces of very good news.

1) Yesterday was my swim class. I think I posted that I didn't want to go. Not only did I go, I swam....wait for it.....1k!!!! That's right - 40 lengths!!! There was just me and the other weak swimmer that showed up - we were both so pleased with our hard work we went for a hot tub to celebrate. It was awesome!!!

2) I received a piece of mail from WW. About my change in goal weight. THEY ACCEPTED IT!!!!!! I am now OFFICIALLY 5 lbs away from my goal weight!! I just about cried. Also included in the package is a form for me to fill out when I get within 2lbs of my weight to get more information on working for them.

Wow - how do you top a day like that??

So, yesterday SPARKY mentioned in her entry that she would be only spending an hour on the computer per day. Of course, I thought that sounded nuts. But then her entry bounced around my head all day. My house would also be much neater if I wasn't dicking around on the computer. So, I think I will follow suit. She is a wise woman. I will be shutting off at 9:00 a.m. daily.

Totegirl: Can I just say that you totally crack me up!! "Fitinah" actually made me laugh out loud. I have no doubt that if we were to meet in real life, there would be many giggles.

You know, Fatinah is my belly dance name, and it means "enchanting, alluring, captivating" - all of the things I wanted to be after having learned to dance. Oddly, I think that having started on the road to fitness has given me confidence which has made me more of those qualities to my husband.

On the agenda today.....personal trainer and some time on the bike for the triathlon challenge. Then - yum - lunch with the girls!!

Did I tell you all about the triathlon challenge? It runs the month of June at my Club. There are 3 categories. Beginner, Intermediate and Iron Man. I signed up for intermediate. This means that DURING the month, I have to do a total of: 4 hours of swimming or rowing; 8 hours of cycling and 6 hours of run/walking. The only stipulation is that the activity has to be performed at or from the club. Daughter even signed up. She is doing the iron man. Brat!! In any case, I have squares marked off for all 3 activities, so I'm well underway. They will then choose names from those that complete the challenge for prizes. Fun times. Oh, speaking of challenges - I have some miles to send Tigerlilly for her challenge. I'm still trucking along!!

Have a healthy day bloggers!!
