Great video! I had no idea you could use a BBQ this way. No more turning my house into an oven when it's plus 30 and I'm trying to make dinner!

Interesting read, Hayley. Integrity is something we talk a lot about in our family. I think the "disease of me" illustration is really valuable.

I feel good about my swimming, but I am a little nervous because I've heard from others that the nerves get to them and make it difficult to maintain good breathing on race day. Also, I was a bit choked last week when my training schedule said I had to go to the pool on one of the first really nice weather days of the year! As luck would have it, the next day was cool and windy and I was on the bike. Good luck with your race.

shanvan commented on Part 2 - Set Yourself Up For Success!
Great post! I have never thought of using a nap as a reward. I think that might actually be enough to push hard even when I'm feeling low on energy. Being selective about priorities are key - we can do anything we set out to do, but we can't do everything!

I love the idea of involving children in the meal planning process. At what age do you think kids are old enough to start participating?

"What do you require when setting a goal to ensure it’s meaningful enough to commit to in your life? " >> I decided to set the goal of completing a triathlon this summer not because I had always dreamed to doing a triathlon, but because it's about the last think that I ever thought I would try. For me, the challenge is not so much physical (although there is that!) as mental and spiritual - putting myself out there in a place I never saw myself going.

This is an excellent philosophy Too often I have failed in the past because of an "all or nothing" mentality (that and expecting results too quickly and getting discouraged). Meaningful change takes time...
