#tbt 3 years ago this weekend to my very first race of any kind (and the first time I ever realized that I have a pretty long tongue ๐Ÿ˜ณ) . It was a 5k zombie survival race with @_mandy_y @melhicks9, and I was infected at the very end. I guess I was also infected by the desire to enter races! ๐Ÿ™„ . This weekend will be my first half Ironman. In the 3 years that have passed, I've learned...ABSOLUTELY NOTHING. I still don't train for these things. WTF am I thinking??? ๐Ÿ˜ฐ . I really just go for the beer afterwards ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿป๐Ÿƒ๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ) #ifidiesomeonefeedOscarthecat #whyamilikethis #throwbackthursday #zombierun #thebeerwascold #oldladylife #mytongueislongerthanyours #fitover40 #yyc
๐Ÿ”ช๐Ÿ”ช๐Ÿ˜ @mybigcheese poutinerie truck is outside my building. How am I supposed to resist that??? Spoiler: I did not resist that ๐Ÿ˜ž๐Ÿฅ” #potatolife #yyc
Did a short bike this morning to try out my new tri shorts. I'm not sure I love them, but thankfully Furry McJudgester was on hand to offer her opinion ๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ˜’ 4 day countdown to my first half IM! (If my body is fished from the bottom of the lake and needs to be identified, please use the selfie with the most likes. ๐Ÿ˜ฐ๐Ÿ˜ต๐Ÿ˜‚) #mycatjudgesme #whatwasithinking #istillcantswim #potatoesagainstcardio #wheresmyshoes #thisishowidie #selfie #yycfitness #fitover40 #yyc #fitoverforty
Last year was a busy one! I DON'T love running, but I do love being active and having fun at these events. A couple of years ago, I never would have thought I could finish a 5k without dying. I've come to learn that stubbornness will take you a long way. Like, a half marathon long.

I've been pretty willy nilly with my workouts lately. If I don't die this weekend trying to finish my first Ironman 70.3, I'll be getting back on track. (Dying is a real possibility tho...๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ˜ฐ) I also stopped taking those hair and nail gummies for now. This mop is getting out of hand ๐Ÿ™„ #imightdie #shouldhaveactuallytrainedforthis #potatoesagainstcardio #flatbottom #hairgains #yycfitness #fitover40 #chucktaylors #homegymlife
Someone was extremely angry that I went away for the weekend ๐Ÿ˜ณ I enjoyed some much needed girl time, golf, and gained 5lbs of bloaty goodness... Back to the grind tomorrow morning! ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿป๐Ÿ˜€ #mycatispissed #bloatedasfuck #oscarthecat #mondaysbelike #yyc #catsofinstagram #crazycatlady
Happy FriYAY! In honour of #flexfriday I'm flexing some sweet humidity hair gainz. It's getting a little hard to keep my head upright with the extra weight. Enough now. Seriously tho. ๐Ÿ˜’๐Ÿ˜ž #lookslikeitsneckday #girlswholiftheavyhair #oldladyproblems #humiditysucks #wheresoscartho #kneesocks #cantseemychucks #fitover40 #yyc #curlyhairgirls

I haven't done any core work lately, so I ended my workout with a couple rounds of hanging leg/knee/oblique raises. The struggle was real... ๐Ÿ˜• - Then I sat in a soaking wet bus seat (thanks @calgarytransit ! Half the roof and windows were leaking from the rain on the 301 ๐Ÿ˜ ) - THEN, I shot the poor guy next to me in the face with my hair elastic that went renegade when I tried to tie up my huge mop. Whoops...๐Ÿ˜ณ - Happy Tuesday! #potatolife #oldladyproblems #thehumidityiskillingmyhair #isawanotherspider #yycfitness #fitover40 #homegym #abworkout #kneesocks #chucktaylors #girlswhoworkout
Happy Monday! It's Stampede week ๐Ÿค ๐Ÿด, which always means rain, which means humidity, which means HUGE hair. . I can feel it coming... ๐Ÿคก . Did shoulder stuff today, because if I want them to grow, I gotta do shoulder stuff. ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿป๐Ÿ˜† Happy Monday! #humidityistheenemy #watchoutforbighair #potatolife #chucktaylors #kneesocks #homegym #yycfitness #fitover40
It's about 1000ยฐ in my house and the fur ball is giving me a major case of the sweats, but LOOK AT THE LITTLE JERK'S FACE ๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿ’• . How can I possibly move? ๐Ÿ˜“๐Ÿคท๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ #crazycatlady #immelting #thisishowidie #smellslikepotatoes #oscarthecat #oldladyproblems #mycatisbetterthanyours #ahobbitthrewaringinhere #yyc #catsofinstagram
If my shoulders were Math grades, my Asian mom would disown me... ๐Ÿ˜’ Why you no grow, delts? ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿ™‡๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ - I've been focusing my workouts more towards conditioning and less lifting lately. The struggle is real. I'm not a total potato, but endurance is a major hole in my game ๐Ÿ˜ž - Front squats (I still really suck at these) Bar 1x8, 55lbs 1x8, 85lbs 2x6, 105lbs 3x2 2 mile bike 4 rounds: 20 burpees 10 Barbell lunges 20 reverse back extensions - 2 mile bike Totally tired of my hair right now. @millersheila using your hat trick.

I hit the pool this morning and it was bad. Really bad. I guess I shouldn't have left swim training to 2 weeks before my race ๐Ÿ˜ฑ But...if I happen to die during the race, at least I won't have to suffer the shame of not finishing and coming home to the disapproving gaze of Oscar the cat. (She totally slept in today, so who's the real disappointment here??) I'm also completely amazed how all my hair manages to fit in these dinky little caps. Magic. Pretty sure it's magic.

ROCK OUT WITH YOUR SOCKS OUT!! That's right. New socks. Took a lot to drag this potato ๐Ÿฅ” out of bed this morning. I need to turn everything off at night and just go to sleep. But...the struggle to know what happened to the child stars of the 80's or looking at pictures of cats wearing cute outfits at midnight is VERY, VERY REAL. Just sayin' #thursdayvibes #newsocks #potatoeswholift #oldladyknees #crazycatlady #bighairdontcare #thestruggleisreal #yycfitness #fitover40 #iskippedcardiotoday #chucktaylors
My arms are getting way darker than the rest of me. Oscar is embarrassed by my uneven tan and "can't even". ๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ˜’ Almost skipped today's workout, but felt my potato meter rising and decided to tackle Angie WOD tonight. 100 pull-ups (band assisted) 100 push-ups 100 sit-ups 100 squats Even doing most of the push ups on my knees, the first 2 took me forever. I need to work on my upper body strength this year. Ugh... ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿป๐Ÿ˜ฐ #noupperbodystrengthwhatsoever #mycatisbetterthanyours #farmerstan #potatoeswholift #oscarthecat #yycfitness #fitover40 #training #homegymlife #fitoverforty #strongnotskinny
I haven't been to a spin class in a long time, and I'd like to tell everyone that it was absolutely HORRIBLE. I have turned into a sweaty tomato with hair of epic proportions that I could barely fit into the car. I'd also like to add that instructor @love.mallory @fitrepublicyyc and her "just a few more seconds" is a filthy liar. Filthy... . #thisishowidie #spinclassisnojoke #nottodaysatan #bighair #isweatalot #fluidswereleftbehind #iranoutofwater #andthewilltolive #fitover40 #yycfitness #potatoesagainstcardio
I made a healthy taco salad with lettuce and chives from my garden for lunch. I thought I was all ๐Ÿ˜Žgrowing some vegetables. Ooooh, look at me all down with nature...UNTIL I touched this soft, squishy caterpillar hiding in the lettuce when I washed it out. ๐Ÿคข๐Ÿ˜ท Gave me the heebie jeebies for several minutes. ๐Ÿ› Umm, yeah. Maybe I'm not quite ready to live off the land... ๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ™„ #bugsaregross #notafarmer #eww #ateitanyway #tacosalad #garden #growyourownfood #yyc #eathealthy #yycfitness #fitover40 #nogreenthumb
