2009 in review

I sit here at my desk and think about what a year 2009 was and where it went so quickly. 2009 started off with a bang and a swift kick in the butt. I threw myself right into training for an ironman. For 6 months, I left behind a husband and 2 adorable dogs to do what...train for an ironman that I didn't finish. That's right, I DIDN'T FINISH. I feel that even though I didn't finish I walked away discovering so much more about myself. I've learned to control most of my anxiety with the help of a great doctor or two. I've learned that no matter who much I worked for something and wanted it so badly, that in reality not finishing was the best thing that probably happened to me.

I can't thank my loving husband enough for being there for me when I was never home but to eat and sleep and probably complain about something.

In April, we headed down to Galveston so I could participate in the Galveston half ironman. I was mentally and physically ready for this day until I cut my feet on some oyster beds. I dropped out at mile 7 on the run. I was pissed. But oh well, it happens.

In June, not only did we travel to Idaho for me to participate in my first Ironman, but e had an awesome vacation in CDA and Montana. We spent time with some of our dearest friends ever.

July came and I was just so happy to finally get back to being normal and hanging out with my friends I ditched for 6 months. If your friends don't train with you, well kiss them goodbye during ironman training.

August...on word...HOT!

September came and I started to just ease into things. I started playing tennis which I loved! I reconnected with an old friend that is now my best friend. I never knew we had so much in common.

On to October. Wow, I had the best 30th surprise birthday party of my life. Never saw it coming. I also went home and surprised my family for a weekend that they had no clue that I was doing.

November started the craziness for the holidays. My in laws showed up for Thanksgiving. We spent Thanksgiving in San Marcos again. I just love that tradition now.

Now to December. This has been the craziest month of all. We had our first Christmas party at our house. My sales guys gave me cash once again this year..WOOO HOOO! We took both dogs home for Christmas this year. We have decided that we need a much bigger car for the 4 of us. The dune buggy(Nissan Rogue)just isn't big enough for road trips.

Fatty Fat Fatso...

Well here I am once again complaining about my weight. I feel like I weigh and look like I did before I started not the case but that is what I feel like. I got on the scale last night and about had a breakdown right there. I didn't want to see those numbers but I did. I sent a text message to Ali complaining about it.

I know I can't keep the ironman training for the rest of my life, but things have to change! I can't keep gaining weight. I'm putting my self back on my no bread diet and going to make sure I work out more often without killing myself. I for sure have to get off my ass on Saturday's and Sunday's and do something. Whether I ride my bike or go run, I have to do something.

Ehh...I'm just so frustrated with myself. How did I let this happen?

It's COLD in ATX!

So we are at that time of year were it is COLD here and I don't want to work out because of it! But I'm come to the conclusion that I just can't sit around anymore and I have to get my fat butt up and do something or it is going to keep getting fatter.

I wanted to work out on Monday night and well, I forgot my shoes. By the time I got home, it was late, the rain was coming down and I was tired from the weekend and was asleep on the couch at 7pm.

Tuesday night I decided to do a double header. I went to corefit and got my but kicked once again. Then I went to spin class and my legs just didn't want to turn those pedals over. It got a little better but not much.

Today I'm suppose to run in the freakin cold. Don't know how I feel about that but I guess we will give it a go.

December 2009 we are at month 12 of 2009! Where has the time gone? Seems like this month is going to be crazy. We have parties after parties and several houses to go to at Christmas. When will the chaos end!

This Christmas we are traveling with both dogs. This is just going to down right hilarious and miserable at the same time. Since both of them seems to keep having medical problems, I just can't subject anyone else to dealing with all the medications and problems.

Once in the Texas Panhandle...we will be either at Motel del Stinnett(yeah, I named it this) or in Guymon with both of them. We can't have them at my parents house as my sisters dog is to aggressive and then Niki in turn will eat her and then Ozzie the Weiner Dog is to scared and will hide the whole time. And they can stay in Guymon only if we are there since there are so many pills they need and well Rex has to sleep with a human. Don't think my inlaws want a dog in bed with them.

What a Christmas this is going to be. It might turn out to be the best Christmas we have ever had or the worst. Who knows. We will have to wait and see.
