Hello from snowy Massachusetts. We are getting a blizzard here today, what’s your weather like? The only good thing about this blizzard is that I am working from home today and can wear my leggings and hoodie all day long.
My brain has been full of thoughts and decisions this week so I figured it was a good day to write a Thinking Out Loud post.
Thinking Out Loud #13
Yesterday I registered for my first triathlon of the season. I have participated in the JCC Triathlon by the Sea. Last year I thought was going to be my last year racing this race but I had such a disappointing race that I want to come back and CRUSH this triathlon.
Here are some of my recaps:
- My 7th Annual JCC Traithlon by the Sea
- My 6th Annual JCC Triathlon by the Sea
- My 5th Annual JCC Triathlon by the Sea
I got a cavity (actually 2) for the first time in at least ten years. What the actual F*CK?! How did that happen? Luckily my dentist is amazing and was able to fill both cavities the day after he found them. Looks like I need to brush and floss better.
DietBet #2 is not going so well. A weekend away followed by the Superbowl really hasn’t helped in losing 4% of my body weight this month. Now that I am signed up for a tri, looks like maybe I’ll go back to 2-a-days. That should jump start things.
Have you heard of RunBet? I bet you haven’t. The lovely folks at DietBet are running a beta program for running and yours truly jumped on board. RunBet is a running challenge where you commit to get in 26 runs over 6 weeks (at least 2.5 miles per run). Runs are verified by a running app or by sending photos of your treadmill screen.
RunBet starts on Monday. So this means I have run more. Boo/yay! I have such a weird relationship with running.
Is reading my new favorite pass time? Yes, I am still reading a lot lately, thanks to my local library, but honestly I’ve never read more in my life. Last week I finished The Couple Next Door by Shari Lapena and Not Becoming my Mother and Comfort Me with Apples both by Ruth Reichl.
Thank you Amanda for hosting Thinking Out Loud today!
