Back to the weight room!
I was so sore from lifting earlier in the week, but that actually motivated me to pump some more iron. Today was back, legs, and abs. I donâ€™t really have a system â€“ I just try to lift heavy weights.

After lifting, I swam 1,000 meters. This is probably my very last swim before my big triathlon on Sunday. I practiced visualization while I swam. I imagined a calm, fast swim. Keep your fingers crossed for me.
I left a bunch of Operation Beautiful notes behindâ€¦ I love leaving them at the gym! I used to do some of my worst body-bashing in the gym mirrors in college.
Onto the eatsâ€¦
Date with almond butter as a pre-workout snack:
And lunch was brown rice with roasted carrots and broccoli + some baked tofu. I drizzled it all in creamy balsamic. Yum.
Guess what? We MIGHT put an offer on a house today. Excitement!
