Where does the time fly?
Can you believe this time in two weeks so many of us will be together in Chicago! Holy smokes!!!!!
I am so excited and can't wait to meet my roomies for the weekend - Stacey and Paige. And there are SOOOOOOO many other BOOBS rock stars I'm gonna be looking out for.
I get in the Wednesday evening @6 and have booked a town car from Midway. If anyone else is getting in @that time, you're welcome to get a ride.
So after my last post, I ended up spending TWO WHOLE WEEKS with a completely empty band!!!! It was good to have internal relief, but even though I didn't eat as much as 'normal people' and did try to eat pretty well, I packed on 8lbs! Actually earlier this week I was up 11lbs but thank goodness Bootcamp started again and the exercise helped. Even my surgeon commented on how quickly I gain weight!!! Ah well.
He put me back up to 5cc - just a smidge shy of where I was and I can feel such a difference. While it was nice to have a bit of a break from the restrictions the band places on me, I am relieved to be back in a good place!
Bootcamp. Started again Tuesday and we have another awesome group of newbies and so many incredible women from cycles one and two came back. It really is like a big, extended family. So much positive energy.... it's incredible.
I've also signed up to be the swimmer on a sprint triathlon relay team next sunday (25th). Yup.... Haven't swum competitively in oh, I dunno, 10-15 years, but yours truly coerced Nakera (bike) and Bianca (swim) - two lovely bootcampers - to be on my team. Well that has now multiplied and we officially registered FOUR teams from G-Fit including one with an amazing lady Erin Brown who lost a leg to bone cancer 7 years ago and uses a prosthetic. She'll be biking for one of our teams.
Of course I got this idea, signed up and then thought hmmmmmm.... should probably get in the water since I haven't swum in decades.... Dad and I went to a pool Wednesday morning and swam solid for half an hour. It felt really good! So there's hope. I cancelled the Medivac ambulance I was going to have on standby! lol
Speaking of ambulances.... well not really..... needed a transition.....
tomorrow is my last day on the job at the newspaper and radio station. On Monday I start my new job as Director of Marketing at Doctors Hospital. Am really excited about the change. I have orientation for two days then I'm in my department Wednesday. The following Wednesday I head to Chicago to meet the BOOBS.... hey... these things happen... adn they preferred to get me in for a week to get started than have me wait until the following week when I get home!
Ok... I am going swimming with Dad again at 6:30 tomorrow morning and am still tired from not getting to bed early enough last night when I had 4am wake up for Boot Camp!
