Mini Triathlon Completed

Wow What an amazing week it has been.  First I was so focussed in training that I didnt even know the PT was saying hello to me whilst traiing someone next to me and yesterday I decided to JFDI!!!

I got myself into the right mind frame before entering the doors of the gym, I WILL DO THIS, I WILL NOT LEAVE UNTIL I COMPLETE THIS..................... and thats just what i did.

25km bike ride

6 km Jog - broken into 2 legs due to an injury ( did have to use the cross trainer for the last 1km due to arm chaffage HAHAHA)

3km row

PLUS  a 4 - 5 km walk with my partner earlier that morning.  All together 38 kms!!!

I cannot believe that i accomplished this - that I didn't give up and that I - NOT ANYONE ELSE - kept me motivated for the whole 1:59:58 seconds that it took to accomplish this goal.  I have learnt that arms need more toning though! LOL

I have been relying on my PT to push me through the past couple of weeks and although i missed training with Kev yesterday i taught myself that " i am worthwhile, that I can achieve whatever i want , as long as mentally I prepare myself - and that means thinking positive and zoning out. 

To celebrate my achievement my partner took me out for our first meal together since our daughter who is now 9mths old was born!!   We went to a lovely little restaurant, where I ordered barramundi with asparagus and requested that they hold the herb butter and any oils from this meal as I was following a strict diet and needed a lovely meal to celebrate my success today.  They were wonderful and kept filling my water up with fresh ice.  My partner ordered a dessert where I had one spoonful with my skinny cappuccino.
The whole day was a total success.  I am now ready to be able to hit any barriers i may come too when on holidays with family next week and am looking so forward to jogging around the gold coast.  LOVING LIFE

Not only am i getting fitter but I have also found that my whole personality has changed. that I have so much more love for my family, that I'm not grumpy all the time, and that now I RUN UP AND DOWN MY STAIRCASE AT HOME and I don't make other people go and get things and sit on my "once was fat ass" LOL xo

After 5 telstra technicians i am finally back on line and able to talk to my 12wbt family.  You have no idea how much I have missed everyone.  I even missed a whole week of print outs to follow but still managed to keep a consistent weight loss by monitoring everything. 

I have met so many wonderful people through this experience and my partner is so impressed with me by the way I have changed from the negative person i once was every morning after getting on the scales to the positive person I am now.   I found myself dancing around with my 9 mth old daughter in my arms this morning with no inhibitions of worrying about what i looked like.  Huge change!

Even with all the external excuses that are totally out of my control at the moment I have stayed positive and know that life will soon get back on track and that i am so lucky that my partner did not die from his accident.  By the way - power saws are now banned from our house!!!

Anyway , Just thought i would drop a quick letter to ssay  I MISSED YOU ALL SO MUCH XOXO


Did a trial triathlon a few days a go in my brand new kayano sneakers and skins and felt fantastic!! Even with a sore back I didn’t give up I just substituted the run foe the cross trainer. Apparently the PT that works there said hello to me as she was raining a person next to me and I didn’t even know.. I was totally focussed on getting the job done. 
Feel so fantastic and looking forward to my qld trip next week. Seaworld will be great to jog around each morning and I have even organized for groceries to be delivered after I arrive so as I have fresh food from the moment I get there. SO ORGANISED!! Just need telstra technicians to fix Internet tomorrow so I can get back on line and chat to everyone!! Have missed my Wbt family so much!!!
