The Triathlon........

After having Sophie almost 22 months ago, I was determined to get the baby weight off. I soon realized that it was alot harder to shed anything let alone a pound. Then to my great surprise I found out that only after 6 months of having Sophie I was again pregnant. It was extremely hard to get it into my head that, Yes, once again I would be gaining more weight. I thought I was doomed...I had not even lost anything from the first pregnancy,... how was I supposed to put more back on? During Chloe's pregnancy I was determined if I could not get the weight off, I would at least stay active and workout as much as I could. I joined the YMCA and started taking some classes. It went well, I felt great through the pregnancy. Now it is 6 months after having Chloe and there is no way that I am getting pregnant again. So now here I am, over weight and not happy with myself.
A couple months ago McKenzie Pew and I were leaving from somewhere and she mentioned to me that she would be doing a Triathlon in May. She asked me if I wanted to do it with her. HAHAHA In my head I was laughing and thinking "Yeah Right!" Instead of telling her that, I instead told her that I would think about it. Then one day I found myself telling someone (I'm not quite sure who it was) that I would be doing a Triathlon in May.... ( Oh my gosh did I just tell someone that??) I could not believe that I just agreed to do this. I really hadn't thought about it, and now I was all of a sudden committed to doing this. I'm not a very good runner. I know that I am not the best swimmer, and Biking??? What was I thinking?
What I am thinking now is that I have a few poundage's to loose and what a great way to loose them. I have a great goal in the end. I have great friends to do it with. And I get to see how far I can push myself. I am happy to say that I am excited to do this now.
We started training today and I am feeling it all over. The people that I am doing this with are: McKenzie Pew, Elizabeth Chappell, and JIMMY!!! (and anyone who would like to join us)

I think that is totally awesome. I also told my brother that I wanted to run a half-marathon just weeks before I found out that I was pregnant with #4. That obviously isn't an option right now, but I really want to do it after this baby comes. Good luck to both of you -- what a huge goal and accomplishment!!!!
