three things thursday

I need to borrow/buy/rent a wetsuit.  Not right now.  But sometime before 8/26/12.  In case you didn't read yesterday's post, I am now officially signed up for the Rev 3 tri in Old Orchard Beach.  This means that I need to swim 1500 yards in around 65 deg ish ocean water.  I'm hoping the wetsuit will make the OWS a little easier for me.  I know I can swim that distance--no problem.  It's just the open water part that has me a bit nauseated.  I swear to god if I can get through that OWS, the rest of the tri will be absolute cake!  Moving on to the three things--

1.  Manimal earned his second stripe at jiu-jitsu class last night!  He gets the stripe at the next class on Monday which I am so glad about because I can go and watch.  :)  He is so proud of himself--it's pretty cute.  I'll have pictures next week--don't you worry!

2.  I became painfully more aware of my aging yesterday as I was waiting for Princess in the gas station bathroom.  I know the lighting is not that great and I was not at my best either (end of day, heading home after dance), but the jowls and lines that my sagging skin on my face are making are really just depressing.  I stood there for 5 minutes or so pulling at my face and actually seriously considering have a tuck here and there to pull my skin back.  What the f**k is wrong with me that I am looking at myself wanting a face lift??  ugh.  You can train all you want but you can't outrun Father Time.

3.  When I got to work this morning and pulled out my lunch, I noticed that the juice had leaked out of the container all over my gym clothes.  Today's lunch was pork slow cooked in Ah-So sauce (which is that Chinese red pork sauce) all over vegetables.  Nice.  So not only did my gym clothes look like they had been puked on, they smelled like Chinese pork.  Nothing says a hard workout like sweat and Chinese pork smell....  mmmmm.

Do you have any suggestions on wet suits?  Where to get them, what kind?

How are you dealing with Father Time?

Ever get lunch on your gym clothes?

mmmm pork smell and sweat. ick. on the wetsuit front, I have an xterra full sleeved which I really like. If you end up buying look for a coupon code, they are always on sale. If you think you might just wear it once, renting might be the way to go.

No kidding about Father Time. Our lighting in the bathroom at work is the worst. Everyone always says not to look at yourself in the mirror there because you will age 10 years in the light. LOL

I try my best to not look in mirrors because I'm just plain old scared!

Eewww....gross about your gym clothes. They were going to get sweaty anyway, but not a fun smell!!!

Your workout must have been a very smelly event. I have not split lunch on my gym clothes that I am aware of at this time. Of course, now that I have said that it will happen.

Bathroom lighting is always hideous so don't go there. I avoid mirrors so I can't see what Father Time is doing!
