I think it is HILARIOUS that I started my last blog post with “I think I’ll write something every Wednesday!”… and then wrote nothing for over a month. Typical!
I’m still Weight Watching (down 29.8 pounds, woot! But it barely shows, wahh). I mean, my clothes are looser, but I can still wear them. My face looks a little bit thinner, but overall? It looks like exactly what it is – a drop in the bucket that is my long-term goal.
I am definitely eating cleaner and healthier, and feeling well and energetic. I sleep well and I mostly wake up feeling rested and refreshed. However, when I get tired it hits me fast and hard. I’m good, I’m good, I’m good… and then I am asleep in a corner, drooling on my arm.
Triathlon training is getting a little intimidating and overwhelming. Not physically – Coach Irondad knows what he’s doing and doesn’t ask me to do anything I can’t handle – but mentally and emotionally, for sure. Looking at the days and weeks ahead, I’m feeling a lot of “Oh shit, how am I going to be able to fit this in and make this work?” But there is really no wiggle room – I HAVE to prepare for the 70.3 I’m doing in December. Lately I’ve been wondering if I’ll be able to complete it in the time allowed (8 hours, 30 minutes). I’m honestly not sure. Though I’ve been training consistently and losing weight, I haven’t really been getting any faster… and I am ridiculously slow. Stress! Self-doubt!
Nothing to do but keep giving it my best.
