Holding Myself Accountable

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *
Since last August, I have completed 3 Sprint Triathlons. Each one has had its difficulties for me. The first one, I used a bike that made the biking part really difficult. The second one, I had bronchitis and thought I was going to die. The third one was after a long winter of getting way too lazy with my working out.
The other thing that has made each of these more difficult than they need to be is that I have not trained for any of them.
There is another one coming up in less than three weeks and I promised myself that I would train for this one. Well, with three weeks left, I have gone swimming one time and now I am trying to motivate myself to get into a routine for the last few weeks so that I can fulfill this goal of 'training' for this one.
So, I put a countdown on my sidebar and I decided to do a posting so that I felt like I was accountable to actually work on this goal of training.
So, as soon as I post this, I will be going to the gym to run on their track and hopefully, I will continue being motivated to TRAIN.

YOU GO GIRL !!! (okay, that didn't help very much)

on a selfish note, since you are very obviously talented with your camera, if you get a minute, please look at my bridal pictures and if moved to, let me know what you think!

i have tried over and over to comment on your blog, but it will not let me. sorry.

so i will tell you that i think the bridal photos that you took are beautiful. that location was really neat and i think you did such a great job. i love them. i am glad you told me about them. i really enjoyed seeing those.

i am really scared to ever take bridal photos of someone for the same reason that you were scared.

I'm so glad you stopped by! I am not good about "knowing" things about the computer, but I am very sorry you can't comment, I may try to figure that one out; ie: I will ask my hubby!! ;)

Take care,
