Three Things Thursday

1.  My house is under contract.  Yay!  We have finalized the last of the contingencies.  Double Yay!  Barring some national emergency we should be able to close before or around Christmas.  Triple Yay!  This is a large relief for me.  It cost us a little more after the inspection to fix a few things, but it is worth it to not have to heat that empty house for the winter. 

2.  The last of the UFB pie is finally finished.  Thank goodness I don't have that hanging over my head, taunting me at night.  I should've just eaten it in one sitting and been done with it!  Combine that pie with the less-than-stellar exercise week I am having and my pants should be a little tight in no time.  Oh how I hate the holidays and all that goes with it (food, darkess, busy schedules, stress, recitals etc etc).

Any day now the gifts from patients and area ophthalmologists should be rolling in.  This means a plethora of food in the staff kitchen from now until 12/25.  Previous years have included:  fudge, whoopie pies (of every flavor you could imagine), peanut brittle, crackers, cheese, the occasional fruit, chocolate chip cookies.  Everyone is plotting against me in my quest to be healthy!   I must stand strong!

3. I just purchased my Team Tough Chik uniform.  (uniform?  Is that what you call it?)  I decided to go with the triathlon package.  I really liked the tri tank better than the running shirts, so that's what I went with.  I will be getting a tri tank, tri shorts, t-shirt and visor.  I'm so psyched!  I can't wait until this stuff arrives in March.   I then got to thinking about what races I'd like to do next year.  I want to do the two tri's I did last year--Nor'easter Tri and the Bath Y tri.  These are both sprint tris.  I also want to do the Tough Mountain Challenge, Maine 1/2 Marathon and many of the local 5K races I did last year.  I have in the back of my mind that I would like to do a Olympic length tri, and Maine has a few, but Rev 3 is having a race in Maine this year--right here in Old Orchard Beach.  This might be too good to pass up as my first olympic tri.  I just don't know if I can get over my OWS fear.  What a spectacular race for my first one.  Suck it up, buttercup. 

Any race plans for next year?

Are you on team Tough Chik?

Any UFB pie you need to finish up?

Luckily for me, I'm coming into race season now being Australian!!
I have a few races planned come next year (I've already done a half ironman three weeks ago).
An enduro and a mini-sprint in Jan, and an OD in Feb will keep me warm.
I have another half in Singapore in March (hope my tough chik kit arrives by then!!) and the a Long Course in June.

And I just purchased my team tough chik stuff today! Yay!

And I have no idea what UFB is. I think it's something to do with me being an Aussie :P
