Heading up a hill before I died. This is a hill I only get to
when I am going more than 10. Vermont isn't very
pretty this winter is it?
Today I had my annual physical. As I have said before I love my doctor. I was with her for over an hour. She doesn't just examine my body she also talks to me a lot about my family, my exercise passions, possible stresses. She truly wants to know what's going well in my life and what I am worried about. She has lots of practical suggestions and will research on your behalf if she doesn't know. She lets me brag about both of my children and seems genuinely impressed with what I tell her. She wanted to know about my triathlon goal and always makes me feel like a fitness goddess. I think if she was to make a poster for aging well she would put me on it. She said my cholesterol and blood pressure were "fabulous." She told me my weight/BMI were good. She did have a couple of small concerns and is looking into those but overall - the report was "I am doing GREAT."
Thanks to those of you who answered my swimming questions in this post. Please still weigh in if you haven't on long sleeve or sleeveless wetsuits. I don't think I am going to rent as I want to try swimming in one beforehand. Do you have good websites for buying (less expensive please) wetsuits or particular brands you like? I won't be shopping for one for quite awhile but I am doing some planning now. I'm sure I will have LOTS more questions so please bear with me and thanks for your input!
I just realized tonight it is about time to get new shoes. This fitness stuff does cost money but it's for a good reason, right!
I have to leave with at least a couple of pictures of Jax from Saturday. And I did take Jameson out to lunch without Jax before I left so I wasn't ignoring my son completely!

his Aunt Emily gave him for Christmas.
