Do you all remember that I went into that competition with my girlfriends, the first part was to lose 10%, the second part was to get to goal, and the third part is to maintain.

Well, we just finished our 2nd part and I was closest to goal!! The bet was to put $200 each into a pot and then go shopping. In the end, we decided we had all been working hard, so we would just go shopping and each buy something new. Since the two gals still hadn't purchased swimsuits (from the first part), we got that done, and then looked for some clothes. I ended up getting two new pairs of capris and a cute pair of cheapo shoes. Oh, and a cheapo belt. The capris look really good, if I do say so myself. And, they were a size 10! I'm officially down a size (finally!).

I'm on my way to weigh in this morning. I'm thinking I will see a maintain. Eh, whatcha gonna do?

I have to meet with personal trainer today. I'm a bit nervous BECAUSE I'm still sore from Monday's session. It was all leg work, and I was sore in places in my legs I didn't even know I had muscles. The workout was quite hard, but I really enjoyed it. One of the things I had to do was the plank on my elbows, with my toes on disks (the ones that make your feet slide). Then, for 20 seconds move my right leg out to the side and back, then for 20 seconds my left and then for 20 seconds both legs out to the side and back AT THE SAME TIME. Holy hardness batman!!

I also have some more of the triathlon competition to do with daughter today. We still have some swimming to do and walking. Oh, and somehow I have 15 minutes of cycling. Don't know how that happened. Daughter is finished her cycling and she had more than me!!

Well, I must away to weigh in!! Have a healthy day bloggers!!
