By Cindy Thompson, Trimazing! Health & Lifestyle Coaching / March 14, 2011 /

Along with 32,000 of our closest friends, high school girlfriends Patty May and Seriny Kunz joined me for the 2011 Shamrock Run in Portland, Oregon March 13. Despite being the morning after our first night of Girlfriends’ Weekend, daylight savings with an early wake-up, and drizzly rain, we had a ball! The three of us…

Being Sick Blows!

By Cindy Thompson, Trimazing! Health & Lifestyle Coaching / March 3, 2011 /

Actually, it sucks and blows simultaneously! Just when training was hitting full steam, I got a bug of some sort that threw me into full-on sinus infection/tonsillitis. I’ll spare you the details, but I’ve been in pajamas nearly a week and missed two days of work, and a week of training. Wah! So not much…

Gettin’ Busy!

By Cindy Thompson, Trimazing! Health & Lifestyle Coaching / February 21, 2011 /

The weather’s picking up, the training’s picking up…woo hoo! Time to throw the bike on the car and head out to some long ride locations. Friday I got out for my first ride after the bike fit. WOW! I really didn’t realize what a difference having my bike custom adjusted to me would make. I…

Happy Valentine’s Day 2011! This year I took care of my heart for Valentine’s Day. My gift to myself was a copy of Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease by Caldwell B. Esselstyn, Jr., MD. I had read about his studies and program, and seen his information in Forks Over Knives (see my previous blog for…

By Cindy Thompson, Trimazing! Health & Lifestyle Coaching / February 8, 2011 /

Well, whoops! I missed my weekly posting date! Thanks, girlfriend Rachel, for keeping me honest and on track by subtly asking if my blog feed updater was broken…doh! Isn’t that what makes girlfriends the BEST?!? I’ve been keeping on track with working out. Most of my workouts recently have been in the gym due to…

Week 2 Recap

By Cindy Thompson, Trimazing! Health & Lifestyle Coaching / January 25, 2011 /

Unfortunately I didn’t get quite as much training in this week, not really sure why… I ended up being on vacation the whole time, and maybe my brain thought I was on training vacation as well. Whatever it was, I’m back in the saddle again…bike saddle! I did, however, get a few road cycle rides…

A Great First Week!

By Cindy Thompson, Trimazing! Health & Lifestyle Coaching / January 18, 2011 /

Well it has been a busy and productive first week of Tri training! I was reflecting on it today while sitting in the car getting the oil changed, wishing I had my laptop with me so I could capture my stream of consciousness at the time… 24 Hour Fitness was a great decision for me.…

A Plan….or, Planning to Plan!

By Cindy Thompson, Trimazing! Health & Lifestyle Coaching / January 11, 2011 /

I am now a member of 24 Hour Fitness! There is a beautiful facility exactly 3 miles from my house, close enough for me to run or bike to, and it’s on the way to (and from) work. I haven’t signed up before because I have been able to exercise by running and biking just…

The Date is Set…Iron Girl Triathlon June 26, 2011!!

By Cindy Thompson, Trimazing! Health & Lifestyle Coaching / January 6, 2011 /

So I did it! I signed up. It’s not the first triathlon I’ve signed up for, that was last year, but this will be the first one I actually complete! It’s not that I probably couldn’t have done the Girlfriends and Dudes Tri in July, I mean, I’d been running and cycling, and how hard…
