That's a fun weekend in SC. Saturday night Morgan's girlfriend wanted to go sing karaoke, so the 4 of us went out. This biker bar was near his house, and they knew the dj. I sang a Black Crowe's song and the Bartender Song from Rehab. Morg did a few, and Martha sang a bunch but we couldn't get Kelley up there.
Sunday's ride back was pretty tough. Usually it's about a 4 hour drive, but we had to stop a bunch of times, including picking up our niece. Kaileigh is always glad to get some time in Raleigh, and we're always glad to have her. She's on spring break all this week.
Monday the kids went nuts over April Fool's day. You can imagine the corny stuff that a 5 and 7 year old can come up with, and they did it all. Kelley got in the shower to find that all of the soap had been hidden. Bigun switched the bags of Frosted Flakes and Fruit loops, then asked for the loopies for breakfast and got Frosties instead. Evil Genius called me at work to tell me that my pants were on fire. The creativity those two can put out there is pretty impressive.
When we switched back onto daylight savings time I made a joke on facebook about moving to Indiana because most of the state doesn't observe DST. So for April Fool's I put that same joke out there with a more serious tone. I don't think anybody believed me.
Not April Fool's!
Monday night I got accepted onto the AAA Carolinas Triathlon Team ! I am incredibly excited about this. It's a regional team, not national like Rev3 or Wattie Ink. But they sponsor a the NCTS and SCTS series of Setup Events races. So I get a racing kit and a few other perks, and have to do a Setup Events race this year which is not a big deal. I'm very excited and will do another full post about the team once the profiles come up.
Monday morning's naked weight was pretty bad this week. 184.8 lbs and 21.2% body fat. I should be closer to 175 after 2 months of Ironman training. You can't out train a bad diet, and with all of this traveling and hectic scheduling and high stress work stuff going on, it's water weight or stress eating? I can tell I'm making some great strides in strength and conditioning already, and don't need to sabotage that with poor food choices. I think the quantities have gotten a bit out of hand too. Time to reign it all in!
This week has been much better, and I got on the scale at 180.6 thursday morning. so that's progress. I've been working the portion controls this week and the quality pretty hard. And managing my stress levels better, I think.
Coming up this weekend, Bigun and I are heading back here for more fun in the camp sun. Let's hope it is sunny and warm this year? please?
That should have been like 6 blog posts. That's how busy and stressed I've been lately. More campy fun pics next week!
