To Triathlon or to Chicken Out?

One of my sisters called me today…she was wondering if I want to do a triathlon with her when we go out there (to UT) this summer.  She tried to convince me it would be lots of fun. *sigh* So now I have to decide.

I get a sick kick out of making someone sore. 😀  Really, that’s when I know I did a good job and did it right…not trying to be mean...

Exercise & Weight Loss Goals

Two weeks ago, I decided to get serious with losing weight. *sigh* My goal is to lose 1 pound a week…I set it low because my time is limited. I don’t have a big chunk of time during the day to devote to any one thing…Dean cries, or Pierce wants attention, etc. I wanted to set something I could accomplish. So I figure, from...

Very wrong.

I just find it very wrong that Paul and I can go on the same diet, eat the same foods for the same amount of time, I exercise (he doesn’t) and he loses 15 lbs and I lose 2!! Grrrr…
