Question of the Week


While my buddy Chris can gain weight with impunity in the off season, we all know that trimama's have to be more careful in their consumption, something about all that fun loving estrogen wanting to hold on to fat. Case in point, I dropped 25 pounds in my first 3 months of training, but lost a measly 10 over the next 12. My weight loss program is simple, watch what you eat, watch even closer what you drink, and train regularly.

However, someone has clicked on the hibernation button. Couple that with how recovering from Ironman makes you hungry and eating diligence becomes an endurance sport all it's own. My hats off to those of you who regard every bite you take, but here is a list of things I HAVEN"T consummed, in spite of myself.

One whole blueberry pie
A pitcher of margaritas
3 people tenting in line at the local target for a PS3 (although that might be helpful as there are 9 people in line and only 6 tickets available)
An entire Green Mill deep dish pizza
A fully loaded Chipotle Burrito with chips and salsa
A complete Thanksgiving dinner with 7 pounds of potatos (this is killing me, T-day could have been yesterday for my liking)
A dozen doughnuts
Hyphen Girls science fair project (ok, that's not so tough, it's about how quickly meat rots at room temperature-lovely)


This weeks question is short answer essay, tell me, what am I missing?


OHIO V MICHIGAN?

This is a tough one, I typically like the underdog, but this time it has to be

Go Buckeyes!

We have our year end tri banquet tonight, Iron Jenny is the MC, hopefully I'll have pics to post Monday
First Swim Meet for The Tribe on Saturday, Basketball starts for HG on Monday (yea I got the assistant coach position-can't wait!) and training has resummed

Have a great weekend

Trimama out!

Ohio State baby. I loathe Michigan for all of the times the Gophers have lost to them.

I kept the weight fairly well under control during my (too short) off season.

Mike Ricci has made it quite apparent that I could have gained a few pounds without worry. He's made me lose that much just with his swim schedule.

Blub, blub, blub. Cool about the coaching gig.

Michigan all the way!

I think it is natural to gain some weight during off season.

I do watch what i eat..but i try to indulge more. I don't wanna stress the body during off season....let 'loose' a bit and eat some more junk :)..

Trimama!! see you tonight at the party - don't forget to wear a cleavage dress....
Laura and I are bringing a 2nd outfit and are changing halfway through. I don't know why. Just seem like a funny thing to do...
I registered for IM FL - if you haven't yet, remember to put down something stupid for your occupation. Tim registered as a "Leaf Raker"; I'm a "Smokin'Hot Nascar Wife"... you get the picture... I almost put down Homework Checker, but decided that wasn't so funny because it's my real job....
About your weight, you look great! If you split a margherita with me at the party, it only has half the calories... so stick by me all night and we'll both go home skinny...
mmmwaaaaahhh!

My family back home would disown me if I didn't say MICHIGAN

Fe-lady said...

Yeah for Minnesotans who root for Ohio! Are you cooking for the whoe tribe? You will burn enough calories to warrant a good dinner then! Happy turkey eating!

You have not yet eaten your young, your mate, your own limbs, or Bolder's Ice Cream.

All things in moderation . . . including triathlon.

See--and that's another reason why I heart my Trimama!

GOOOOOOOOO BUCKS!!!!!

I love basketball season, it's indoors and warm. GO UCONN!!! Have fun at your banquet.

Wendy said...

I think I ate Bolder's ice cream for lunch yesterday, saving TriMama from the experience! (I was living on the edge and ordered a brownie for desert. Who knew it came with chocolate sauce and vanilla ice cream??? Really, I had no idea.)

TriBoomer said...

That cartoon looks like me during my IM Fla taper. Pepperoni, yummmm!

MU v. OSU? Oh, pleeeeeeeese... it's Penn State all of the way!

(OSU 28, MU 17)

Stay tuned...
