Just checking in so you know I’m still around and kicking. The triathlon is in just under four weeks now. I am sitting on the edge of my seat reading about Rita of The Giggly Bits as she is writing about her first triathlon experience. I’m still finding the swim harder than the running and […]

First the good news – I finished! The bad news – the swim was really hard. Like, this-close-to-giving-up hard. Let me walk you through… I was totally nervous throughout the day.

So at three weeks and one day into Intuitive Eating, I got on the scale for the first time this past Sunday. I was very curious, wasn’t sure what to expect.
