TTT – Surprise!

1.  Surprise!  I’m not reporting about how beautiful Europe is because my trip got canceled at the very last minute.  Like right before I was going to leave for the airport.  So that was fun.

And as much as I was complaining about being busy, I was really excited for my trip.  So please forgive my not rushing on here to post.  I dealt with my disappointment by throwing myself 100% into my training and cleaning the house.  It worked out well since I killed my training and now have a presentable house which I will need because….

2.  Mama Penguin is coming in to town!

Needless to say, this picture goes towards a theme of Throwback Thursday. Dang, I was a cute kid!

Seeing as my wedding is actually getting closer and not further away (stupid linear nature of time), I figured I needed to do things for it…like buy a dress.  So she’s flying in for a weekend of wedding dress shopping.  In truth, I hope it ends up being more a morning/afternoon of dress shopping and a weekend of doing other fun stuff, but we’ll see.  Can you tell that I’m not the super typical bride?  Either way, expect hilarious pictures and stories.  I mean, this is the person who I had an entire conversation with by us moo-ing at each other.  That’s normal for mother’s and daughter’s right?

3.  I hopped on the scale this morning for weigh in and the verdict is….down 2.2 from last week!  That makes 10.4 pounds total!  Not going to lie, I may have actually gotten on the scale and done a happy dance.  Every pound lost makes my upcoming Half Ironman that much easier.

These (smaller) hips don’t lie!

Happy Thursday!

  1. Great job on the weight loss! We are weekly twins I was down 2.2 this week also!!

    Have a blast wedding dress shopping. My advice try on EVERYTHING. I had so much fun doing that I kind of want to do it again.

  2. Ahhhh….I am all choked up your momma is coming into town to shop for the dress. I don’t think my daughter will ever get married…can I come too to shop? 🙂

    Bummer about the trip but you’d just have eaten all those rich, sugary sweets in Europe anyway, right? Right. And that’d be counter-product to your awesome weight loss – congrats, my friend!!


    • If there is hope for me, there is hope for your daughter! I may be done with shopping, but you should still get your butt out here and visit! I am trying to figure out a weekend to come out to Denver but travel is being difficult with me right now.

  3. Sorry about your trip. Best wishes with wedding dress shopping.

    I tried to reply on my blog but it came across a separate comment, anyway, husband and I both speedplay frog pedals on our bikes. Very easy to get in and out of, kind on my knee, and allows use of mountain shoes which are easier to walk in than road shoes. Check them out!

    • Thanks for the info! I’m trying to be well researched so that I don’t look like a doof and fall flat on my face!
