It really has been a long (short) week.
Between work, sleep and training, I really dont know who I am half the time.
Today has been a good day though. Its only half way through but I have had some great family time. With my kids nearly burning down the restaurant, and sister almost driving through the entrance it has been adventure packed. Just how I like it.
There is only an hour run waiting for me, its waiting patiently as I try to avoid it. But sometimes the smiles on my kids faces take precidene over my feet smacking the pavement.

Survive, Love & Suck It Up

First ride of the new year.
First ride in a LONG time. I'll be honest it wasnt smooth sailing. Our neighborhood isnt flat, so when it came to the hills I was huffing and puffing. The only thing I could dream of is the day when I'm back in shape and I'm cruising around with no problem.
I'll have to say the ride is my favorite part of triathlon.
When people ask me which is my favorite, I say this:
"I survive the swim"-
Cause Ill be honest, there is ALWAYS a point during the swim that I think I'm going to die. Either a shark will come and eat me or there is no possible way I can get another stroke in. So once I exit the water, I say a little prayer that I made it, then I cry all the way to the transition area :)
" I love the bike"-
Straight up, I feel like a bad ass on the bike. Im strong and I know it. There has to be at least one discipline of triathlon that you conquer, and for me it is the bike. NO woman is allowed to pass me up. That is in my head. God "blessed" me with some strong legs, and I definitely put them to good use.
"I suck it up for the run"-
Now I enjoy running, but after a 1.2 mile swim & 56 mile bike ride, running isnt exactly "fun". So you have to suck it up. I always have to push myself. Just do it. Dont be a little wimp and punk out. Cause hell, I got that far, not giving up now.
Phew. Just talking about it has wiped me out.

Gotta Look good for Walmart

Jacket: Target
Dress: Thrifted
Tights: Target
Boots: Shoedazzle
Hair piece: Ulta
Necklace: Jewelmint
This is me. Tired, and ready for a grocery shopping date to WALMART. Yipee!
Sister came zombie walking out of her room today, looked and me and said" Ummm? Wait.... Going to Walmart? Got it." Hey c'mon Walmart needs a little bit of love.
But really today is the shortest long day ever. Slept in, rushed to get food in the house, bike ride, now I'm blogging while I should be getting for work....
But on to grander things, like this AWESOME dress. From Goodwill of course, with the price tags STILL on! Hahahahaha I love that. Its originally some Target yumminess.
Then the weird boots. I've been seeing them around, around .... well around. Been having a total love hate relationship with them, but then they popped up on Shoe Dazzle and lovely sister got them for me for Christmas. Thank you :)
They are hot right? I mean you probably hate them ( I know my husband does).... but somewhere inside you want them :)

P.S Happy New Year

Yeah it's been a LONG day
2012 Already?! Heaven help me!
I really just wanted to get in a post today.
Its 10:30 pm on a Monday night. I have been home 20 minutes from a 6 hour shift.
Yep, I got a parttime job. I'm totally psyched.
But I'm waiting tables & just started 70.3 training again.
So what does that say about my legs? Um, yeah they are DEAD.
But I really can say it is worth it. To have a little bit of my own money.....
(thats actually paying for my coach, entry fees,...all that jazz)
Also its totally big news that I'm off the injured list and training again!
So get ready for some triathlon posts again, along with some restaurant tales, sassy thrifted outfits, and my random ramblings.
Also have way to much to post from the New Years in Houston.
