Wellness check in 2/13/19

I saw my wellness coach today and the numbers are in. No pounds lost, but .5 ” off my waist and .5″ off my hip.

Best part is?! Carbs ๐Ÿ˜œ And all the ones I loveโžก๏ธ banans apples & oranges. Nobody shaming me for not dropping 5 pounds in a week. And definitely not in a public forum.

I have not been really good with taking food pics but here are some

Incase you are interested I am following a whole foods plant based eating. I get weighed and measured every 2 weeks. Check out their Facebook page HERE

I am about 80/20 with this.

I am NOT trying to lose weight. Yes, that would be a perk. I’m looking for something that is long term, sustainable, and helps to heal my body. Sooooooo yeah!


But all joking aside I have years and years of negative self talk and disordered eating to combat here. I cannot just undo 20 years in a month. So, I’m taking it at my pace. With my๐Ÿ‘ small๐Ÿ‘ sustainable๐Ÿ‘ choices.

I am on day 4 of race prep phase. So IM CDA 70.3 here I come. I use TRI-DOT as my training platform, and I absolutely love it. More on their training program to come.

With a little marathon and a small spartan trifecta sprinkled in there ๐Ÿ˜œ


Assessment week

This last week was assessment week. I use the coaching program TriDot .

I currently use it for triathlon training, but they do marathons too!!!

There are many reasons why I use this program. But let’s look @ the numbers!



Raw pace= 2:00/100m

SwimDot= 44

Threshold 100m= 2:20

Raw time for 400m= 8:03


Raw pace= 1:54/100m

Swim Dot= 53

Threshold 100m= 2:00

Raw time For 400m= 7:38

Improvement of 22 seconds off my 400 time.

We know swimming is my favorite. I literally was not in the pool at all in between assessments as I just didn’t have the $ for pool fees.

Okay so we get that I love the water. But still the gains were there just from my other activities.



Bike Dot = 51

15 mile time trial on indoor trainer = 44:56

Threshold = 147

Power = 151


Bike Dot = 56

15 mile time trial on indoor trainer = 44:10

Threshold = 162

Power = 162

Improvements made in overall time/heart rate/projected power

The bike is hard but just because of amount of time in saddle plus I am not all that great at it ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ



Run Dot = 15

5k time trial = 39:32

Pace = 12:45


Run Dot = 14

5k time trial = 40:22

Pace = 13:01

Okay so I definitely did not improve here. But I am chalking it up to a few things.

  1. Weather- it was significantly colder and windier than my previous try. Had to change to a hillier route
  2. Health- I was just getting over a chest cold
  3. My own serious LACK of dedication and training
  4. I SUCK at running, I am so slow!

Being sick the week before assessments I was not expecting any improvements.

I also know that race prep for IRONMAN CDA 70.3 starts tomorrow, so I’ve been slacking ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜.

Tomorrow starts my race prep phase so I am ready to kick it into high gear and show what Tri Dot can really do for me in CDA.

I will keep you updated on next assessments๐Ÿ˜‹
