Ok....bad food day. Good workout though. Swam 2100 yards today (~1.2 miles). Did much better than Monday and I am feeling comfortable breathing on both sides. I can swim several laps with only taking about 4 breaths per 25 yards so it's definitely getting easier! So the workout may half cancel out my fatty-bo-battyish ways today??
I also did something that I have never done before in my entire life!!!!.....it's a secret....and NO, I didn't pee in the pool.....

Today was a good day. Encouraged by my 4 week results, I was motivated to eat a good breakfast and lunch. No 'official' workout today but I do have indoor soccer tonight - and that is definitely a high energy workout.
On a different note, I dreamt about the triathlon last night. I don't usually remember my dreams, but this one I could remember some vague details. The swim in the dream was at Riverplex, the gym I belong to now. The bike was indoor and it was an inflatable arena so everyone was moving very slow. There were food carts at different points of the race and I remember I stopped at one, put my bike on the back of someone's car (and just quit??) and helped myself to sliced roast beef at one of the carts?? I haven't asked the folks organizing the Sullivan Civic Center Triathlon if we will have the option of roast beef during the race.....
I'd also like to give a shout out to Jimmy! (guy #2 in the 2 guys, a girl and a triathlon) Jimmy is officially registered for the race and has been smoke free for over a week!! Wohoo!

- Weight - 175.6 lbs *down 5.6 lbs!
- Hips - 38.5" *down 1.0"
- Waist - 33" *down 2.0"
- Belly - 36.25" *down 2.25"
- Chest - 37.5" *down 1.5"
- Arm - 12.75" *down 0.5" each - so 1.0" total
- Thigh - 26.5" *down 0.5" each - so 1.0" total
So a total of 5.6 pounds and a total of 8.75 inches in only 4 weeks! Celebrate!! Lots more to go, but I'm happy with my 4 week success. I need to learn how to reward myself that doesn't involve food either - because naturally I step on the scale, see the loss, and my first thought? McDonalds for dinner??! I need someone around in times like that to just knock some sense into me. Hehe.......I didn't get McDonalds :)
83 day till Triathlon!!
Only 8 more days until I'm wearing a bathing suit in Dominican Republic!! Wohoo!
