Thanksgiving was both good and bad. Good food, not too much though. Bad (aka really delicious) desserts were left, but for the good, I got some other people to take some home. Good was getting up at 5:25am to go to hot yoga, then putting in 2 - 22 min sessions on the bike trainer in the evening. Bad was getting $100 stolen from me by my brother in law's brother. Asshat.
But the best? The day after Thanksgiving! I got on the scale to see:
Why yes, that is the weight I have on my driver's license! That number has been a lie for soooo very long! I was giddy, and still am, to be honest! Hoping to lie about my weight by being under 215 soon! Reminds me of this post from September of last year. I wonder what my face would look like in another license pic now!
Another NSV happened when I was home last weekend for my friend's wedding. I thought, I might have my silver heels in my little sister's closet still, so I was head first in this closet full of crap and found the coat I bought my freshman year of college. It is a very nice pea coat and I felt like I paid a million dollars for it (it was $100). It is an 18/20 (I went into college as size 16 - ha!gained that freshman 15 pretty fast!). I pulled it out and tried it on. It fits perfectly! Near my senior year, I always used to wear a hoodie with it because it would no longer button, far from it in fact. I tossed it on TeenSwimSis's bed thinking maybe she would wear it, but when I came back a day later, she had tossed it on the floor. I had really been wanting a new winter coat, but couldn't stomach the cost, so I was glad to have found this one. It really is a lot warmer than my other coats/jackets. Hooray for fitting into it again 10 years later

I'm so excited it is December! I'm looking forward to spending time with family and friends and being choosey about what sweets I eat! I have already been looking at 2014 races. I would like to do more open water swims, a couple sprint tris, and I'm hoping to make my first Olympic triathlon a reality! I want to do some around my area, but maybe travel for a couple too. Definitely ones around my hometown, even though I HATE the idea of racing in front of people I know, I would love to race with some of my family members in that area. But what is up next? Getting my USAT (triathlon) membership! Woah, when I set goals at the beginning of last year, I NEVER thought I would do more than one triathlon, let alone get a USAT membership!
How have you surprised yourself? Oh, I forgot to mention, I CAN do a half plow now! That pose haunted me in yoga last year!
Anything exciting on the horizon?
