Current Book: Right now, I am reading Prodigy by Lu. But I also finished a few other books in March. (Note: For those of you who have asked, if it's on this or any of my lists, I would recommend the book. If I don't like the story or the book doesn't grasp my attention, I don't bother finishing it, thus it wouldn't be listed here.)

Current Shame-Inducing Guilty Pleasure:Food. I just can't get enough of it. Current Colors: Shimmer Green and Blue. Just like in my Rev3 Shimmer Suit ...
Current Drink: Hot tea with a touch of sugar. It's freaking cold here right now.
Current Song: Thank You - MKTO.
Current Triumph: I crushed my swim this morning. 2500 meters continuous in 49:01 - My first sub 50:00 time for that workout and a 3+ minute PR.
Current Goal: Be a better me. Each and every day. And tackle my 2013 To Do List head on.
Current Blessing: Health, happiness and love. I've got all three.
Current Excitement: I get to race this month! First, on April 14th, is the Flying Pirate Half. Then, on April 27th, I kick off my tri season with the RTC Sprint.
2013 To Do List:
140.6. That is all. - Registered.
Make time for strength training. Don't let training loads eliminate strength workouts completely. And stick to strength training in a group, it keeps you accountable. - Yeah I kind of sucked at this in March. Only one true strength training session.
Switch to time-based/HR training. Despite my knowledge of training paces, I have a hard time sticking to them. I'm hoping this will help me train more effectively. - I love it and I hate it.
Log 4,500 cumulative run, bike and swim miles. Up 485 from 2012. - As of April 5th, 740.72 miles logged.
Race a 10K with a finish time much faster than your very dated current PR of 53:17. I never managed to register for a 10K in 2012 and I'm not sure where it will fit in this year, but it's on my radar. - No progress on this one.
Set a new PR in the Half Marathon, currently 1:57:06. I totally blew this one in 2012 and will likely only have one good shot at it in 2013.- Registered for Flying Pirate Half in April.
Run a 5K with Dizzle and Doodle, even if that means tricking them into it. - The kids have been running quite a bit recently. Probably going to aim for the fall.
Eat like a gluten-free athlete. After struggling with health issues much of 2012, removing the gluten has been key in alleviating the symptoms. Don't be swayed by the lure of wheat. Or cake.- On point, like usual.
Find the race day (and training) nutrition plan that works for me.- Eventually ...
Consume no more than 18 desserts from Shyndigz . This number worked well in 2012 and helped me cut back on my serious cake addiction. Plus, their gluten-free menu is limited, so I shouldn't be tempted as often. - As of April 5th, 8 desserts consumed. Only one birthday left in our family this year, so we should be cake free for a while after that.
Drink at least 100oz of water per day.- Oh, heck yeah!
