I did the SW Valley YMCA Reverse triathlon today. Not one of my better performances, but the weather was perfect and it was a fun day.

I did the Surprise, AZ, Reverse Triathlon today. Short event and I was the only one in my new age group, so I got a gold medal.

If you want to be happy, desire and pursue happiness more for others than yourself, and your own well-being will take care of itself. Dedicate your weight-loss journey and the achievement of all your goals to someone else and think of them when times get tough.

I did the JCC Scottsdale Sprint Triathlon this morning. Beautiful day for it - sunny and warm, with just a slight breeze. I got third in my age group again, which sounds great until you find out there were only three of us in the 55-59 group. Even so, I was very pleased because I improved my times in all three disciplines as compared to the same event last year. I took 15 seconds off my swim, 21 seconds off my bike and an amazing 4:55 off my run time! The run time is the most gratifying for me, because that is the part I always find the hardest.

I am still at home taking care of elderly mom. Don't think it will be much longer.

Hope I can walk again soon. Trying to keep my 89 year old mom from falling last week through my back out. Beginning to recover. At least she didn't fall.

I did an 8 mile run today, and then later went and watched a bit of the bike portion of the Ironman Arizona. The bike course was not too far from my house, so went there to watch and get some pictures. Congrats to all the athletes doing the race today!

Got in an Olympic distance triathlon spread over the last three days - 1700 m swim, 24 mile bike and 6.2 mile run. Now I just have to put them all together on one day a week from today.

Sorry you're going through a rough patch, Sal. I hope your load lightens soon. I can certainly relate. It's no fun being exhausted. I take care of my 80+ mom at my home too.

wish my exercise was fun. I have spent a full week taking care of 2 80+ year olds. My FIL after his surgery and my mother who I am working on moving in with me this month. I've been working myself into exhaustion and none of it is any fun.

I did another sprint distance triathlon last weekend (see my blog), and another 1700 yard swim today and decided to go for it - I'm going to do an Olympic distance triathlon on October 28th!

I had planned to do a triathlon this weekend, but I didn't feel ready for the swim. It is an open water 750 m swim, and I have only done a couple of open water swims previously. I decided not to do the triathlon, but I went to the pool at my local YMCA and just started swimming. I wanted to see how much I could do. Now, it is much different swimming in a 25 yd pool instead of a lake or some other open water, but I did 1600 yards with no real difficulty. This has got me thinking I may try for a pool swim Olympic distance triathlon at the end of October. We'll see.

yes I could stand some more discipline! I reset my tracker for a short term goal of 6 pounds in 2 months. I think I will reread the beginning stages again, kind of start over

Hi Sal..I'm still on SparkPeople, but I mostly read the articles and try recipes. I still read the posts and the blogs occasionally, but not as often as I used to. I'm still exercising and still trying to follow the guidelines in the nutrtion tracker. But I am definitely not as disciplined as I have been. It's time to get back into things for sure. :) How about yourself?

Good morning everyone:

I had a wonderful dinner with my sisters and family last night. Overate though and had a sore tummy all evening :( When will I learn, hee hee.

Today I am leaving work at 1:00 pm for the day and going camping. My hubby will already by there and all set up when I arrive as I took the car to work this morning to go directly there. We will leave the RV in a field on their property for the week and go back next week for a 3 day weekend.

Hope everyone has a wonderful day and weekend

Good morning everyone:

I'm going to visit my sisters after work. Sue's son is down with his family and I would like to see them. Of course, the sun is not out just because we are going out to the lake, grrrrr.

I gained 2 lbs. but that is the joy of maintaining...up 2 lbs. one week, down 2 lbs. next week, hee hee. I'm doing good :) I was extremely hungry and craving chocolate for the last few days and now I know why. I started TOM, LOL.

Hope everyone has a great day.

Good evening everyone:

Just popped in to say hello as with my hubby being home in the morning, my routine is kind of non-existent in the morning, hee hee.

Going to get 20-30 minute walk/run on the treadmill.

Nice seeing both of you, Char and Keith. Good job!!!!

Have a great one!

Hi All,

The computer was down for a few days, so I haven't been able to track anything. I did exercise for 5 days this week, and I haven't gained any weight. So this means I'm sticking with the new habits I've learned. I do plan to go back to tracking my food though. The blood sugar is still higher than I'd like, so I'll probably do the 8-week diabetes weight loss challenge again. Hopefully this will help me get the carbs under control.

Glad things have calmed down for you Estelle.

Enjoy your Sunday.

Char

Good morning everyone

I thought it was going to rain last night for sure, but it just blew over. It would be nice at this point to just get one day of rain to help out with the grass and the flowers.

I had a good day of eating and exercise yesterday. Enjoyed my girlfriend's pool for most of the afternoon. We play volley with a beach ball and I sure can feel it in my shoulders and arms. I also keep my legs bent and move around a lot, so I think I'm getting good exercise :) while still having fun.

Today is definitely housecleaning day. My husband seems to be feeling better, but he will still take the week off of work. Hope everyone has a serene Sunday.

Estelle

Good morning everyone:

I've blogged about my day yesterday :)

I've had enough drama for a while now. I just want to get back to normal, hee hee. This morning I am starting with my smoothie and then going to do some exercise in my basement gym. Hopefully I can get back on track with my exercise and move on :)

Hope everyone has a great weekend.

Good morning everyone:

I am feeling better every day. Had trouble concentrating at work a bit yesterday, but it was a good day.

I weighed in today and lost 2.6 lbs. I'm maintaining very well. I guess having eaten so much on the weekend and then watching for 4 days helped. That's all I can see.

Got my hair done last night and I absolutely love them. I will get my hubby to take a picture tonight so I can post it as my new avatar :)

Hope everyone has a great day!

Good morning everyone:

I am going back to work this morning. I've had enough stress for a while now and it's time to get back into a routine. I pray that my kids get through this day (viewing of their father tonight) and are alright.

My eating has been alright during this time, but my exercise has been non-existent. Time to get back to a routine.

Hope everyone has a great day!

My son called me late last night and I gave him the news. He was camping for 5 days which is why I was unable to get a hold of him. As soon as his cell phone came into range and he got the text messages, he called me. I think right now his emotions are more anger :( Also, he informed me that his 19 year old girlfriend is pregnant. He knows he is not ready to be a father, but he will take responsibility.

I'm at home again, going to bring my son to the bus station then I will try to unstress and relax from the rest of the day before going back to work tomorrow.

Have a great day everyone!

Estelle

Good morning everyone:

I am home today. I have to try to get a hold of my son which is proving to be very difficult :( I will be picking up my daughter this morning or afternoon.

I slept on and off all night, so not well rested or hungry at this point in time.

Hope everyone has a good day!

Good evening everyone:

Got home at 3:30 pm to very sad news. My ex-husband died. I am trying to reach my grown children and his family. Waiting on phone calls and pretty stressed out.

Not a good weekend eating and exercise wise. Hopefully, I will get back on track tomorrow.

Have a great evening everyone.

Good morning everyone:

It's going to be another beautiful, hot day. We have a couple of friends coming to visit today which I am really looking forward to.

Yesterday, my dear friend of over 44 years came to visit us at our campsite. We don't see each other very much, but when we do it is quality time and we always enjoy each others company. We took her out for supper at the casino buffet. It wasn't the best food, but I think I ate way too much. We will definitely not be going back there tonight.

Hope everyone has a great day!

Estelle

Good morning everyone:

It is already Friday! We are leaving this afternoon to go camping for the weekend. I plan on being really good eating wise and hopefully if I have the internet again I will be tracking. I will also be doing some walking at least as exercise and maybe even some pool. We are having company come over tomorrow. We will all be going for supper at the casino buffet, but I will try to choose healthy.

Hope everyone has a great Friday and weekend!

Estelle

Vacation is always a time we put it on, but it does come back off. I'm so happy to hear that some good habits are instilled in you now, woohoo. Tracking your calories is a good idea. You may be surprised, LOL :)

Well, I'm in a sort of malaise right now. I'm still exercising though not very intensely. I did about 25 minutes of cardio on Monday, a few sets of ST on Tuesday, and I'm hoping to get some cardio in today. I'm still doing pretty good with the food, but I should probably be eating fewer carbs. Since I came back from vacation I've been having ice cream in the evenings for a snack. I stick to a serving size (1/2 cup), but sometimes I will add pecans or a cookie to it. Not good! I'll start tracking my food again even though I'm pretty sure I'm staying in the target calorie range.

On a positive note, I'm eating 4 servings of vegetables/fruits per day, and today I ordered the char grill sandwich from Chick-fil-A instead of the fried version. So some of the healthy habits are sticking for sure. I did gain 4 lbs. while I was gone, but I'm sure that those will disappear soon, especially if I can get back into exercising more energetically. :-)

So happy the job is going well, Estelle.

Continue to enjoy your week!
