extra baggage

Extra baggage(fat) is not fast on race day. A few of us have a little to much extra baggage(thanks mom for all those cookies over the holidays!) than we would like going into the 2010 race season. So, we are starting a weight loss challenge. The first weigh in will be on Tuesday, but the trash talk has already started. We are all super competative. One person who I will leave nameless is determined not to lose since the last time he lost a weight loss challenge he ended up with a tattoo of the Bojangles logo with "Body by Bojangles" on his fanny. No, it isn't Jose. We have also already had to put a no sabotaging rule in place, as the scheming has already started.I expect this to be a highly entertaining 12 weeks
Here are the rules:
12 weeks.
Lose the highest percentage of body weight you win.
20 dollar buy in, winner takes all.
No tattoos
Take a picture of the scale, apparently we have some cheaters in the group.
Plus there will be a weekly incentive TBD and a few sidebets.

I was going to post my strategy, but on second thought I don't want to give the competition any ideas. So, I will post it in 12 weeks.

We have a few spots left if anyone wants in.

looking silly

Since my foot hates me and refuses to let me run like I want to, my coach has me swimming double swims. I have mastered the art of hanging my suit from the rearview mirror and blasting it with the heater in my car to dry it. There is nothing worse than putting on a cold damp suit to get in the pool. Last week while I was doing this my swim coach called me and I had a realization while on the phone with him. The conversation went something like this.

Me: Crap, I think my suit is see through in the butt.
Coach: Which one?
Me: The blue and black one that looks like water.
Coach: Ha, yeah.....
Me: Well, thanks for telling me

Since I swim with a coed group of youth, walking around the pool deck mooning everyone is slightly inappropriate. When I got home I tossed the suit and ordered three new grab bad suits. They arrived yesterday and I am thinking I should have opted for mooning everyone. This is what I got.

Ok, cool... It kinda matches my team colors......

Camo? Really? Sigh..... I have never owned camo in my life....but whatever, it was cheap!

WTF! Skull and crossbones? and red??? Does it get any worse. Good God, I am gonna catch some crap at the pool for this one. I much prefeer pink.....

Luckliy, Trakkers sent me a cool box to lift my spirts. LOVE the PINK!!!!!
