G.E.A.U.X. LSU! Man, what a football game!

If you’ve ever watched Mexican Football, you’ll understand my title!  It’s usually the only word I can understand, and the announcer yells it at the top of his voice for as long as his breath with last.

Today I met my 1st weightloss goal.  I lost 4.2 pounds this week to meet my 5% goal! Wikka wikka wheeee!  As shown on my Fitness Rewards page (tab at the top of the page) I’m ordering my swim suit today. 

Friday, I signed up for private swim lessons at the Y and am waiting on the instructor to call me to work out a schedule. I also had an appointment with a orthopedic sports doctor who is not ready to do surgery on me. He says on a scale of 1 – 10 (10 worse) I’m about a 3 and he wants to try treatment. I told him about my fitness goals and he was very encouraging and told me to keep on keeping on and to stop if it hurts. I’m to return in 3 weeks for him to check on my progress. Honestly, he was more concerned about the oncoming carpal tunnel in both my wrists than the ulnar neuropathy in my elbow and is treating me for that as well.

Today, as soon as I get home from the Commissary, Kahuna and I are headed to our LBS to buy handlebar and seat stuff to rig his mountain bike up so I can learn to ride and shift gears at the same time. I am on a roll people!  🙂

I am having a nice time with my new c25k program, although I’ve walked further and longer than what the schedule has called for. I just have not been able to drop myself down to 10 minutes since I have worked so hard. I cut 59 seconds off last week’s mile. Some time this week Kahuna will pick me up at lunch and we’ll head over to Roadrunner Sports to buy some new running shoes for me.

The other stuff I managed to accomplish this past week was to officially become a member of our local tri club and to suffer from my first bike lust. I’m in love with a pretty little Bianchi I saw at Hi-Tech bikes this past Thursday. Drool! 😛

Have a great rest of the weekend! Oh, and I have pictures of puppies and will download them later today.
