Friday Facts

Fridays are going to be a big deal around here from now on. First, it's going to be weigh in day. When I did Weight Watchers back in Columbus, we weighed in before lunch on Fridays, and it worked out great for me. I don't know why specifically, I think it's because you have 5 workdays to stay on plan after you use your weekly bonus points on Friday or Saturday.

So, this morning I weighed in, and I was happy to see that I had maintained the weight loss from last week. With the way my week started out with food (too much) and continued with exercise (too little), I'm very happy with that. What's important is that my food and exercise willpower are on the upswing. I can't claim full credit for the Friday Weigh-in idea, that credit has to go to Derek H. Long time reader and friend of the blog, who I now live close enough to that we need to get together and go for a ride in the near future.

Speaking of Derek, He and some of my other friends have some important stuff going on, and these are just the kinds of things that will go in Friday Facts each week.

- Derek is raising money for something. I know these seems lame, but I don't know what it is yet, because the link he sent me is broken. But be sure if it's Derek doing it, it's important and in need of being done. When I have the info, so will you :D

- Jason, who at Cook Train Eat Race is writing to make people one meal at a time, is now raising funds to support Shape Up America!; an organization with a healthy weight initiative. As someone who struggles with that exact goal, I think it's important to support Jason in this work. His goal is $20,000 so as someone who had to work hard to raise less than 1/10th of that, so I know he's got an uphill fight on his hands.

- I'll be doing fundraising for Team Fight again this year for Rev 3 Cedar Point, but I have a head start, and I'll be paying most of my own way. I'll have an awesome contest sometime in the summer to make up the small amount I might be short. Doing this lets me help support other folks fundraising efforts as well.

- I've started the search for the triathlon coach. We're still in the early stages, but I expect we'll have a coach by late November.

- North Carolina definitely is going to be a lot more enjoyable to train in over the winter. It's in the 70s and sunny again today, which seems like pretty much the regular weather report this month.

- I ran today. Get used to hearing that a lot, because I know that's the only way it's going to get better.
