Thirsty Thursday

It has been another busy week. Work, Life, ya know everything. Busy. Busy. Busy. I missed my Tuesday workout and am wondering how bad this weekends sprint TRI is going to be. I won't be able to get in the pool today either. I am no speed racer, but I had hoped on beating my last time. Unfortunately, I am more under trained than I was for the first one in June. Oh well, I know I can finish and I much prefer to finish than not participate. I am not much of a "racer" so my goal this year is each time to try and do just a little bit better than the previous race.

SOWL is going well, it is only in it's first week, but I started with the weight I weighed in at 2 weeks ago since Tuesday's are my weigh in day and there would only be a day between posts. Any how, down 3 pounds is good, Baskin Robins after the most amazing dinner, not so good. Ha Ha, actually, I don't want to be that girl who punishes herself for an indulgence. I know I am doing a really good job being calorie conscious and that is all I want to be. I don't want to get to the point to where weight loss is a job. The second I don't like it anymore I know I'll ditch the effort. Yes it should be work I guess, a little, but really if it is going to be a life long effort I need to see it as manageable. Calorie consciousness is manageable for me. If I go over, fine as long as I am aware of it. It is the eating with wreck-less abandon I am trying to stay away from here.

Ok, so you were hoping for some Thirsty Thursday. Tonight is wine club night. If you haven't read any posts on this heres a brief recap. About 10 girls, 10 different bottles of wine in a paper bag, then blind taste testing. The bags are numbered then voted on at the end of the night. The top three votes wine. Each person should bring 2 of the same bottle so that the second bottle of wine goes into the prize pot. Super excited for some girl time tonight and I love socializing and getting to know these really awesome women. Plus there is always some good food to nosh on since it is potluck style hors d'oeuvres. Speaking of which I have no idea what I am bringing. Tonights wine theme is Merlot.

Thankful Three

  1. For thankful for friends with a wine problem
  2. For just realizing I can ask for an hour off at the end of the day to hit the gym for a swim, wish me luck
  3. For a husband who made a kick butt dinner last night with my favorite green, Brussel Sprouts. And they had the cute little grill marks on them too. He must really love me

Swim, Bike, Run, Drink and have fun!

Have fun at wine club! That sounds like a blast but I am not much of a merlot gal. I personally like shiraz when it comes to red wines. But mostly I am a beer girl! Maybe I will start beer club!
