Sunday, Sunday...

Now Playing: cat eating food
Topic: Training Days
Just a quick note - yesterday was our third training and it was COLD!! Anne and I went for a 3-4 mile stroll around my neighborhood at 5:30 and got caught in a downpour the last 10 minutes.

It was a good thing our training was at Bolsa Chica where there were clear skies and no rain - but very very cold!!

We had a good turn out none the less.

Today is a gym day. Meeting Brig in a bit and doing weights and cardio. Have to clean out the garage today and get ready for the yard sale next Saturday!! The weeks keep flying by and I have only fundraised about $500. Just $2600 more to go...yikes!!

Go Team!

Wednesday Night Buddy Walk/Jog
Mood:  sad
Now Playing: tv in background...Nash Bridges??
Topic: Midweek Training
Ok - so tonight was our mentor lead "buddy" walk out at Belmont Shore...and it was just me and Beckie. I was hoping we'd get at least one or two new teammates to show up and get a chance to find out more about them. Oh well. It's only the first week and everyone is getting adjusted to what our schedules have to offer...maybe next week will be better?!

On the bright side, Beckie and I did our 30 or so minutes, a little walk a little jog...it felt good.

And on a happier note - I lost 1.6 lbs this week, so that makes me very happy!! Down 7.6 in 4 weeks - slow and steady wins the race, right?

Until next time ~ TJ

First training day...a success!!

Topic: Training Days
Saturday, 2/4 was our first day of training! Our team is absolutely HUGE!! It was amazing AND overwhelming - but in a good way. We had 12 new members sign up, and one more faxed an application - which means I believe we've met our goal for team participation - that is golden!!

I want to retain these new teammates!! I want us to be able to make sure that each and every one who has signed up will meet their goals and the goals of TNT!! I'm not sure exactly how we will do this - but I know that we all have a lot of good ideas, and that is as good a place to start as any!

Beck & I are trying to plan an "envelope stuffing" party - one way to make even the most tedious of tasks a little fun!! Plus it's an added incentive for people to get their letter writing campaign done...it really is amazing at how those letters really do make a dent in fundraising! Speaking of which, I need to get mine done!!

My goal is to do my timed walks Tue/Thu AM and Wed PM...I need to get that stuck in my head and stick to it!!!

I hope everyone is as excited as I am...I have a lot of faith that this will be an exceptional season!

Preparing for a new season
Mood:  a-ok
Now Playing: BBC RaDiO (Sirius)
Topic: Random Thoughts
I have to admit, I've been enjoying some downtime before the new season begins.

Summer Kick Off is this Saturday!! And our first training will be held on Feb. 4!

I will have been given the honor of owning the "Web Captain" title...what that means? Only time will tell!

Anxiety over fundraising $3500!! Will I make it? What is it going to take? I really want to be able to accomplish this as this will most likely be my final season w/ TNT for awhile. Fingers crossed and determination must be willed!
