Kim vs. The Couch

I'm still trying to lose all the weight I gained since I graduated from college in 2002 (at age 36). At my heaviest, I was about 210 pounds. I've lost almost 30 of that, and I'm working to lose 20 more.

Current Status:
HILLSLUG98239 didn't want to run, did so anyway, then wanted to run 5 miles, but changed her mind after 2.5 because of a twinge in her foot. And that's okay.

My Goals:
Last April I made a big commitment: I will celebrate my 50th birthday in September 2015 by completing an Olympic-distance triathlon. My blog is mostly about training & maintaining motivation. Because I have two years to do this, I am taking it slow. (I am a HillSlug, so slow is my favorite speed!)

My Program:
I'm tracking what I eat and the exercise I get. Structured diets, even Weight Watchers, run counter to my personality. I weigh myself daily, so I know when I'm getting off track.

Personal Information:
Born & raised in Seattle. Joined the US Coast Guard at 18. Bounced around a lot for the next twelve years, including a few more years in Seattle. Moved backed to Washington in 1996 to a rural area of Western Washington (the wet part). Moved to Eastern Washington in 2000, and I fell in love with this side of the Cascade Mountains. We currently live in the Tri-Cities. It's a brush steppe, but the climate is very similar to a high desert: cold in the winter, hot in the summer, lots of sun, not much rain, lots of wind, very little humidity.

Other Information:
I have very little self-control when it comes to food. I can always justify eating that extra snack - and then I regret it!

Although I love to sleep and I could spend 9-10 hours in bed everyday, I'm naturally kind of fidgity. I like to keep myself in motion. I find it difficult to sit for more than an hour. Since I work at a desk job, I'm always up & walking around.

The carpet of purple flowers on the brush steppe sounds gorgeous!

Doc hasn't cleared me yet, but at the hospital he said I could resume training until I saw him again, as long as I didn't overdo it. Felt good today, so I went for a run after the bike ride.

Thanks for the comments. Yes, in retrospect, I probably was training too hard, and just coming off a marathon in February, it was not wise to choose a 70.3 so soon. I'll rest up and do the 70.3 next year. Take care, and don't overtrain like I did. I really thought I was hydrating and eating properly, but probably not. At least the Doc tells me so.
