Throw Back Thursday

Five years ago today I finished my 2nd Triathlon. 
I have this app called "Shoebox" (best app ever!!) it shows you what you were doing on this day x amount of years ago. When I saw this I wondered how much I weighed there. So I went back to my old blog posts and I was exactly 200 lbs here! Only 14 lbs  heavier than I was last weigh in. This is also the time I started having major stomach pain (now I know due to wheat and too much sugar). 
 I've had two more boys since 
Then. Back then I was doing strictly cardio and now I do lots of weights. Here is me today 
I have mixed emotions when I see old photos of myself. Embarrassment. Shock. Like I didn't think of myself as big as I use to be. Also endearment because I have fond memories of this 6 year journey. I've learned and grown so much.

Monday I did Body Combat (kick boxing) and heavy weights.
The next day my hands and feet were puffy (retaining water) (again), this has been happening for a month or so. I was getting really concerned, still kinda am. I have been drinking 90 ounces a day. So Tuesday-today I did little to no cardio, just yoga and weights. Also I sat in the sauna those three days and the swelling has gotten better and I feel like I released that water (puffiness was only at night and I'm the morning). If it keeps happening I'll see my doctor. 
Weigh in tomorrow so I'll be back hopefully with good results :)

That's so great that you completed a triathlon at 200 lbs. I couldn't fathom it! LOL You def look more fit and toned today, though. Congrats on your 6-year journey with new accomplishments all the time. :)
