holy crap i feel good

Ironman Timberman 70.3 Race Recap!

Ironman Timberman was my 4th attempt at the 70.3 triathlon distance (2nd this year, and 1st legit “half-Ironman”), which consisted of a 1.2 mile swim, 56 mile bike ride, and a 13.1 mile run. This race was a last minute decision, due to my learning experience at Ironman Lake Placid, and was spearheaded with mixed feelings. After Lake Placid I spent a few weeks doing absolutely nothing that had to do with fitness, due to my 30th birthday and wanting a mental break from training, but ultimately decided that I couldn’t let my fitness go to waste. Knowing that the race would be my last triathlon of the year meant that I could leave it all out on the course, and that I did!

(Fair warning, and it’s like my 3rd time mentioning this, make sure you have a solid 5-10 minutes to spare. This post is LONG!!)

“I’m not sure what was more unpleasant. The waxing, the bleaching, or the manicure,” he told Zane in a disgruntled voice. He laid his head back down. “They used things on my fingers I haven’t seen since Afghanistan,” he muttered thoughtfully as he slid his arm under Zane‟s and then looked at his fingertips, tangling their limbs together further. “And holy shit, did you get a massage? Brunnhilde went a little overboard with the deep tissue thing. My shoulders are killing me.”

The word “Afghanistan” caught Zane‟s attention, but the mention of muscles hurting almost diverted it. Yeah, now that he thought about it, he was a little achy. The masseuse had told him he would be. But he’d also just done all the work in their little romp.

Hubby gave me a gift certificate to a spa for a Christmas prezzie.  Finally got to use it today.  This little snippet is all I could think of while the masseuse was working on me….

On Thanksgiving my little cousin was saying how she didn't like her curls and how she wanted straight hair and later I was giving her a piggy back ride and she was like "wow I love your curls" and she started springing them (which normally I'm not ok with but I love her) and I was like "you have the same kind of hair it's just hard to figure out" and she was like "I want hair like this" and holy crap I feel so good abt this like yes my precious cousin embrace the natural hair you are beautiful!!

I am bisexual

That feels so good holy crap balls. So I have known I liked girls for quite some time now but I only started coming out to my closest friends and my mum about a month ago. You people are such a huge important part of my life and I felt like I wasn’t being completely me with you. So yea. I LIKE GIRLS AND BOYS! I am in no way a different person, this is just a bit of info y'all didn’t know about me. So yea I love you guys so much. Thank you for allowing me to be so utterly me with you. I LOVE YOU AND YOU ARE ALL BEAUTIFUL HUMAN BEANS

I was just thinking about high school. This comes up when I talk some of you who are still in high school, but I was also just in my hometown for the first time in 6 years or so! In this picture, I was a senior in high school. I look back at those pictures and think “HOLY CRAP I LOOKED SO GOOD” but I remember feeling fat and ugly and being called that time and time again. 

Girls at school convinced me guys I had a crush on wouldn’t give me the time of day because it could only be a pity thing because I was so fat. Friends’ parents said things about me like “Oh? You mean the fat dyke one?” I felt like my weight was a lost cause then because of all that input, and I know that played a huge role in it getting more and more out of hand. If I’m fat and it’s hopeless why care? I wish 26 year old Taylor could give 17 year old Taylor a big hug and talk about how awesome she is. 

If you’re one of my younger followers, please know those people don’t matter - don’t let them matter! You are beautiful and wonderful, and if you want to work on yourself that’s great! Do it for you! *big tumblr hugs*
