I've not been a Biggest Loser fan for quite a few years, but as I was searching for something to get me back into a fit athlete frame of mind, I came across Season 16 - Former Athletes and I've really been enjoying watching it. Former athletes who had let themselves go and gained a bunch of weight are competing. It is something It's really helping me get focused again since I can relate to so many of the contestants. I really hope that over the past 13 years when I initially started my weight loss journey I've learned enough to make this time around a better experience for myself. I had so much self loathing at the beginning of my initial journey that I tried to beat my body into where I thought it should be. I berated myself and never thought I was working hard enough, when in reality, I would have been better off to work less hard at times. This go around, I have a lot more compassion for myself - I hope not so much that it equates to excuses, but I know how good it feels to be l[...]

9:45am: Back in the saddle again ....
Both back at work, and back on the bike saddle.
Supposed to have a trainer beatdown this afternoon, but Kate's wife is feeling very near the point of going into labor, so finger's crossed that happens before my session this afternoon! Other than that, I have my walk to do and I'll do another FTP Builder bike workout.
Aside from that, feeling a little under the weather in one of those non-specific, just-not-feeling-right kind of ways. Stomach a little off, body a little achy, everything a lot tired. Not sure if I have a case of the Mondays or if I need to be more worried.

Another day in paradise, this week will be devoted to the ANOVA test.  Yeah, this is crazy talk for someone who does not do research.
That workout was supposed to have a second round of the inchworm double tuck jumps but HOLY QUADS ON FIRE, after the first round and workout my legs did not have it.
When John was able to get Miss Thing to the Dr last week, she tested positive for strep and an ear infection. She's been on Cefdenir since Thursday and still has a low grade fever, feels like poop and now has a nasty cough. She's using her rescue inhaler, I told her to check back with the clinic.  But truthfully, the respiratory stuff has been knocking people on their a$$es for a while and just takes a bit to recover from. It's the beginning of her final semester & she cannot miss any of her Wednesday night classes because it's the final "Senior Sem" research project she is doing with another student.

In the office for 4 hours for the orderly shutdown.  My boss thinks that even if the vote goes through at noon today, we wouldn't start working again until tomorrow, so looks like either way I have the afternoon off.  To be honest, I could use a day or two esp since it's really nice outside this week... but my company has already informed us that we are responsible for making up every billable hour before the end of our contract year (early March).  If it's 16 days again, that is going to be almost physically impossible to do.  But a couple days is reasonable.

Took Mosley out to a couple wineries and he was SO GOOD, I was really proud of him!  His first social activity since I had him (was feeling that he was getting neglected since Sadie is injured and getting extra attention).  He didn't jump at all and got all the pets and belly rubs he could take.  There was even a baby and he sat down and just let the baby come to him.  SO GOOD!

Monday and Tuesday are nothing but meetings, meetings, meetings. It takes me out of production for a while, so maybe this will be a good thing.

The kids and I all had a very restless night of sleep. I slept so great the night before and last night I was up all the time. At one point I woke up to DS laying on my floor, then the dog was in my room. We had rain and storms all night. 
My heel is a bit sore this morning and my quads are too from all the squatting yesterday.
