I love the Biggest Loser. I really do, I love seeing those people transform their lives. Last night they did an indoor tri as their challenge, which I thought was really cool. I’m rooting for Julie – go Julie! I'm also rooting for me - go me, lose those 13 lbs!

So, I supposedly had a swim lesson last night, but it really wasn’t. Some teenager stood outside the pool in sweats and gave me a few pointers, but she also looked to be doing homework and at one point was braiding her friends hair. I don’t know if she considered that an official lesson b/c she said something about being in the water with me next time. I don’t think I’ll bother. I am just going to concentrate on swimming 500 meters until it is do-able without resting so long in between and go up from there. My goal is to be able to swim one mile straight (32 laps, I’m doing 10 right now) by March 1. It’s so hard right now, I can’t even swim a lap without stopping at the end of each length to rest for a second.

Tonight I have a haircut, then I am meeting Tracie for coffee. Then I want to try and fit in a short run, but it will probably be too late.
