  • About Me!

    I'm just a 25-year old girl trying to find a healthy way of living after a few years of losing my way. I'm training for a triathlon and learning all kinds of training and eating tips along the way! I am not an expert - just a girl who is trying to survive in a world of temptations and unhealthy habits. These are my adventures. I hope you enjoy reading them! Feel free to get in touch with me if you have any questions! :)

I’m getting nervous!

I apologize for not writing yesterday – my day was crazy.  I had to pull a spaghetti dinner together for all the girls.

Woke up this morning and had a big glass of chocolate milk before spin class.  Unfortunately, it doesn’t really seem like spinning is going to work for me.  My foot hurt so. bad.  I couldn’t put any weight on it after about 15 minutes.  I just sat in the saddle for the last 30 minutes (my butt is really going to hurt!!).  Looks like I actually need to seek a podiatrist or something.  I need to get this healed, otherwise triathlons are out of the question…  😦

Lunch was leftover spaghetti and meatballs.  Yummmm!

I’m about to get ready for the sectional meet.  It is always a crazy, crazy meet.  We are in a tough sectional – the top teams in the state are all there.  We have a chance of sending one swimmer to Madison next week.  We won’t officially find out until late tonight or early tomorrow morning.

I’ll give you a full recap later!


Happy Halloween!

Well, today went pretty well.

I started the day with waffles with a little bit of cream cheese and strawberry jam.  Afterwards, it was off to the salon to get my eyebrows done – they were an absolute mess!  I met the hubby at home after his spin class (in hindsight, I should have gone with him) and we enjoyed a green monster consisting of spinach, kale, flax seed powder, Juice+ chocolate protein powder, milk and a banana.  It was delicious!  About an hour later, I decided to eat lunch – I didn’t know when I would eat again.  Lunch consisted of a Lean Cuisine.  Is it the best choice?  Not really, but it works.

And then, it was off to the swim meet.  It was Varsity conference – the second to last meet.  I was greeted by all sorts of temptations – puppy chow, cupcakes, pizza and Oreos.  Gosh, I wish I had the metabolism of  a high schooler again!

I will admit it here – I did succumb to a slice of pizza and a cupcake.  I was hungry and the cupcake was given to me by a parent.   It’s no excuse, but I’ll accept it.

The husband and I had dinner with his parents – Buffalo Wild Wings.  I chose the naked tenders – perhaps the healthiest thing on the menu?  I haven’t looked up the stats – I should do that!  I did succumb to a few pieces of candy.  I restrained myself as much as possible – three fun size bars.

After returning home, it was time for some Yogi Green Pomegranate tea (yum!) and – unfortunately – two cookies.

So, in all, not the greatest day, but a lot of chances to be really, really bad that I didn’t take.  Time to get some shut eye.  Still not feeling that well – really uncomfortable.  I think that is absolutely the worst.

Going to spin in the morning – my first time in a gym for weeks.  EEK!  Weeks!  Gross.  I just disgusted myself.  Well, I need to start somewhere, right?
