Just wanted to let you all know things will be a little hit or miss for the month of July. I'm having surgery on Friday July 9th at 10am (prayers are very much welcomed and appreciated!), and I'll be using my recovery time to plan out how I'm going to once-and-for-all get to goal. I'm super pumped about my surgery, and am looking at it as a second chance to finally get this right :)
I'll be on restrictions for 6 weeks after surgery, so my triathlon, 150 mile bike ride, and half-marathon are out the window. I'm not particularly happy about that, but this surgery is like a reminder from God himself, telling me I need to take care of myself FIRST and get this taken care of so I can go out and do all the things I want to do :)
While on restrictions, I plan to refocus on my nutrition and come up with a FAMILY nutrition plan. I'm very blessed to have my children on track with me, and we're ready to make this a family commitment to eating clean. I'll also focus on core workouts, such as yoga, pilates, and resistance band workouts, to strengthen my core, and stay on track.
Thanks for all that you guys do to motivate and inspire me on a daily - and sometimes hour-by-hour - basis!
