Have YOU ever thought about an IRONMAN?

Today was my 3rd personal training session with Ass Kicker. Once again, he killed me. This time we did all of the work around the dreaded rowing machine. I used to love this machine, the relationship has since turned sour. It kicks my ass every time, especially when Ass Kicker is in charge.

I can't even tell you all of the workout moves we did today, but he pretty much worked everything on me with some high intensity cardio mixed in. Overall a great workout. Maybe one of my favorites thus far.

We also took my body fat percentage. UM YIKES! I am pretty sure it is up a point from when Preston and I had it done when we first joined the gym. Basically I need to lose 11 pounds, while still adding on muscle. This equates to a painfully slow process. How am I going to do this?  I also confirmed that if I do nothing my body burns 1300 calories.

On a positive note I won the last Work Weight Loss Challenge {along with 2 other people}. I ended up losing almost 6 "lake and beer" pounds. We are currently in round 2 that will last 5 weeks. This time I set a goal of 2.4lbs. Slow and steady wins the race.

So here's a question for you. Have you ever thought about doing an Ironman? If you haven't read this book "You Are An Ironman" by Jacques Steinberg. I haven't been able to put it down. And it has me contemplating an Ironman even before I have attempted a marathon let alone anything longer than a 5K if you don't count the sprint triathlon. Yes you are hearing me right, this book makes me want to do an IRON-freaking-MAN. Please feel free to tell me I am insane crazy {and that I should attempt a 10k or 10 miler first then a 1/2 or full marathon before even speaking of the word again}.     

I am sure this will pass. Just as these have:
  • Vegan/Glutton Free Eating: who knew how hard this actually is! I am trying to keep from eating meat. I had my first veggie burger today at a restaurant. Pretty darn good.
  • Puzzle: Preston and I started a puzzle at least a month ago and it's still not finished.
  • Bracelet Making: I did make about 5 of them. So not a complete failure.
