Registered for my first Triathlon!

I'm officially a triathlete in training!  Woo-Hooo!!  Yep, I registered for the TriBella Triathlon on June 28, 2014.  It's an all-women event being held at Cherry Creek State Park.  There are two distances for this one - a sprint and a super sprint.  I took the plunge and went with the regular sprint (1/2 mile swim, 10 mile bike and 3.1 mile run).

Later, in the Spring, I want to take a drive to the park and check it out.  I'm all excited now and I really want to check it out tomorrow, but it's snowing right now, so I guess I'll have to wait =(

It would be really cool to throw in a 5K between now and then too, don't ya think?  I haven't picked one, but I'm sure there'll be dozens to choose from.  It'll be a nice motivator to get my butt movin' in the right direction.

I'm glad there are neither in CO!

It was Merry Christmas workout =o

And yes, I did manage a workout on Christmas day.  Never would I have thought that I would even want to, but I did.  I also tried a new recipe!

The recipe is from and is a really simple but tasty Blueberry Breakfast Quesadilla.

1 Whole Wheat Flatout wrap (90 cal)
2 Laughing Cow Light Creamy Swiss wedges (70 cal)
1/2 cup frozen blueberries (40 cal)
sprinkle of cinnamon

I came up with 200 calories and only 3 WW points, but the site shows 220 calories and 6 pts.  Maybe it was the non-stick spray?  Also, I couldn't find the Smooth Sensations Cinnamon spread, so I just sprinkled on the cinnamon before I cooked it.  This was a very quick and easy recipe.  And it tasted quite good, though next time I think I'd prefer fresh blueberries.

I cancelled out any good I did with breakfast by making sausage jalapeƱo poppers (and uh, they were wrapped in bacon) for lunch/snacks.  Then it was back to healthy for dinner with some Best Buffalo Chicken Chili (aka the Award Winning Best Buffalo Chicken Chili) from

However, before I ate dinner, I grabbed that workout.  There'll be no buffalo chickens hoppin' around in my stomach during a workout!

Oh, but let's back up a bit.  I didn't post the workout from Monday, but I did actually do it!  YAY!!

Snowman - He's so darn cute!

I didn't workout, but I did build a snowman...

Ok, so he's not a real snowman, but I can see this one all year long if I want =)

And so can you!!

I made this little guy in Photoshop this evening... lots of fun "drawing by mouse"!

Anyway, I didn't get a workout or even a post in on Friday.

But I did get to pickup my son at the airport!!

YAY!!! He's home for Christmas, so I'm very happy.  My nutrition has sucked big time since he arrived though.  Not his fault, just a lot of parties and get-togethers and such where pizza was served.  No time to eat in advance, so I had pizza... A LOT of pizza.

Tomorrow, I am back to eating planned meals.  I found some new recipes that I want to try, so I'll keep you posted on how those go.

Hope you had a great weekend!
