Training for my first Triathlon

Well I have finally decided to jump in and do my first Triathlon. It is being held on Saturday, October 22nd at Wittenberg University in Springfield, Ohio. I will be swimming 1/4 mile in their pool, then riding my bike 16 miles on the bike path, and running a 5K (3.2 miles) I think I am both mentally and physically ready for this new challenge in my life.

I have gone through some stress in the past few months while trying to help a local non-profit fitness facility get back on track. However one thing I know about myself since I have lost 85 pounds - I put things in Gods hands when the burden is too much for me to handle. Some things I can fix - and others God has to take the wheel. So I have again grown in my knowledge, wisdom, patience, and understanding - as I have before - and know that God has more plans in store for me when it comes to helping others get healthy and fit.

I am still teaching my weekly Weight Watchers classes and have stepped up my fitness plan and am getting more involved with other facilities in our community that help others get healthy and fit. Also - Doctor Oz has recently partnered with Weight Watchers and started the "Transformation Nation". He is inviting everyone to attend their first weight watchers meeting and weigh in for free. All you need to do is go to www.doctoroz.com and register on the link "Transformation Nation" at the top of the page. Then complete your profile and attend a weight watchers meeting! That's all there is to it! You will then be in a drawing for $1 million dollars to transform your body into a healthier you!

Well - I just wanted to update my blog and to continue on with this journey of helping others become healthy and fit! :) Congratulations for staying on your journey!: ) Talk to you again soon!
