Three reasons I'm proud of myself today

  1. I figured out a "financial freedom plan" to help us pay down our credit card debt in a reasonable timeframe and am tracking it with a spreadsheet.
  2. I rejoined the local triathlon team. I trained with them for a couple of years when I first started doing triathlons.  I quit when I started to regain weight. I have been waiting to join them again until I dropped some of the weight. I finally decided to join and not worry about what people thought about my weight.
  3. At my swim class, I competed in a few voluntary races my coach set up. My times weren't great and I screwed up most of my flip turns, but at least I decided to try the races and had some fun. This was a competition for the fast and slower group combined. I swim with the slower group. Most of my fellow B-teamers did not compete. I knew I would be one of the slowest ones and I was, but it was still exciting. I'm posting my times here so I can find them again later (don't bother checking to see if I set any records).

  1. Those are definitely things to be proud of! Financial freedom relieves a huge weight off of everything else. Good for you for just doing what you want to do without waiting until you look the part again. My guess is that you don't look off the mark at all; most of that stuff is in our heads. What matters is that you take care of yourself where you are, wherever that is. Hmmmm. Time for me to implement that myself :)
