Check out all those acronyms!

BB = Basketball (practice) Brick = Too much going on with my work lately + some slacking + Susan having to go to the hospital on her day off to deal with critically ill baby (so many prayers sent) + rescheduled basketball practice at YMCA = 1 hour bike/run brick workout on Friday afternoon while Coach Terry tried to keep the girls interested in his confusing defense strategy. 

Forgot my music (boo!).  I warmed up on the track with a quick 0.5 mi.  Then, I decided I should cut myself a little slack so I put the stationary bike on a random workout with an average level of "6".  Was able to get closer to the 14ish mph that I can do on my bike.  I went 6.3 miles.  Decided to knock out a mile on the treadmill (1% incline - variable pace though I tried to keep 5 mph which is tough for me).  That was it - practice was about over.

MMNW = Monday Morning Naked Weight = 166.0 = UGH!  I have been dancing all around the low-ish 160's for ages.  I haven't been consistent with my healthy eating (ha ha ha - what is that?) and have indulged in too many cokes, etc, etc.  And now it is catching up to me as I trip back up past 165 for the first time since last spring.  Grrr....which brings us to:

HBBC12 = Holiday Bootie Buster Challenge 2012 = Amanda at Run to the Finish is hosting this event once again.  This year, she is charging a nominal fee, but is packing the HBBC with more opportunities to share, connect and win prizes.  Truthfully, the prizes are a nice touch, but what made me sign up is that if it weren't for HBBC11, I wouldn't have lost 7 lbs between last Thanksgiving and New Years last year!  I think having a challenge (silly as it might be) out there will help motivate me to get in more produce (man, my body has nearly forgotten what a vegetable is!) and more exercise.  I'm totally up for friendly competition so if you want to join me, check out the info on it HERE.  If you decided to sign up, use the coupon code RTTFFAN and get $10 off.  Then come and share with me this journey towards a healthy holiday season.

My weekend was full of mom duties and not much exercise.  Today was crazy with work and I'm worn out.  It is cold and dark and I am wishing I would've made it to the pool today like I had planned before work got the better of me.  Oh well, at least we got our jack-o-lantern carved.  Too bad the girls don't have basketball practice tomorrow. 

Swim: 14,700 yds / 25,000
Bike: 691.9 mi / 1000
Run: 291.4 mi / 350


  1. A challenge like that totally motivates me, too! And other than my weekends, my workouts have been nothing. :P

    As to the Katy ride, my guess is it happens again. :)

  2. I've always thought of doing the HBBC but never have. Probably won't again this year. :)

  3. The HBBC is awesome! Kids activities never last long enough...
