Check out those numbers!

I’ve been involved in a biggest looser type competition the past 8 weeks of the summer. Everyone put 30 bucks into a pot and the winners won the dough.  There were three categories: most pounds lost, most inches lost and greatest body fat change.

I came in third place in the body fat change.  I also lost almost 15 pounds! Awesome.

Check out the numbers below.

Swimming Is Hard

I’ve been swimming the past three weeks off and on. Calling what I’m doing swimming is being generous…. It’s closer to drowning.

That is until today. I picked up a copy of Total Immersion swimming and have been working my way though the text. Today was my first attempt at using some of the techniques and…. Wow! I can really tell a difference. I can’t wait to see what else this book has to tell me…. Particularly in the area of breathing.
Also, the weight continues to drop…. In fact I finally had someone I hadn’t seen in a while remark that I looked thinner…. Yes!

Day One Is A Success

One day down for the run to work experiment. I think it’s going to work! My head’s already swirling with how I can start swimming laps or perhaps adding in some cycle to the mix. After running to the gym in the morning, working out and then running back home after work body was protesting……let’s just say I fell asleep the instant my head hit the pillow. Maybe before.

I can’t wait to see how this will affect the weight/body image! Time to get some goggles….
