I love a good routine but lately, mostly due to very good things, I haven’t been able to make and keep a routine for longer than about six weeks. I get comfortable with the job and they give me new responsibilities. I start working out in the morning before work and somebody suggests beginner triathlon training. I’m not sure how that last one happened but starting today I’m jumping in the pool and going for a swim. Wednesday I’ll be running and Thursday I’ll be getting on a bike for the first time in about 30 years. I’m pretty sure I won’t be doing the triathlon part at the end of all this but I’d love to get better at all three of those things. It’s a beginner course, so how badly could this go? I’ve been telling myself that all week. I also figure it’s got to help get the rest of this weight off of me. It’s 12 weeks so I can count it down every week and by my birthday in September it’ll be over and hopefully I’ll still be standing. This whole weight loss and exercise thing is going to be an interesting chat this summer.

What are you doing to challenge yourself?
