Crappy test today. That run on Sunday became evident 5 minutes into the 20 minute test portion. I think I'll just retest next week.

Got in the pool for lunch. Decent workout, decent day.

Swim 1 Swim 2 Swim 3 (Saturday)
Run 1 (1:25) Run 2 (45M) Bike 1 (45M)
Bike 2 (1:50) Lift 1 Lift 2
 
So here we are back to the list. I am wearing TIGHTS at work today, so lunchtime lifting will be a challenge, but I'll give it a try. It's always hard to wriggle back into tights after a workout, especially when I don't get the chance to really shower up afterwards, just sort of pat myself down. Will bike for an episode of BLACK MIRROR after work. That's 48 min. Last exam tomorrow.
Will spend my work day today studying.

Sold 10 of my items on eBay, that's pretty good! Have 6 ready to ship today and waiting on payment for the other 4. Then I listed some more stuff - realized I have some nice brands of jeans that I don't wear anymore. One pair the style is a little outdated but they're Silver Jeans so a great brand (IMO) - the other two are skinny style - one Joe's Jeans () and then a pair from one of Guess's brands (). The Joe's Jeans (a soft gray, I love the color) I bought when I had just lost a bunch of weight and they were SUPER TIGHT at that point - now 5 pounds heavier I literally can't pull them on. The Guess pair are silver metallic and I have no idea what i was thinking when I bought them haha! 
Early-ish basketball game with my Mom tonight, then a short run afterwards.

Freaky how with some laser-focus and hustle my life can get back to calm in just about 24 hours. Old online classes are 100% done, I just have one new class and it has one technical glitch, but otherwise doing ok. Lesson plans for the week are solid. I even took the time to make a bit more declutter progress last night gathering up all my unused fabric from projects that I changed my mind on or never ended up doing. I had fabric from when I first got married 17 years ago!!! It's several yards of nice light green and some light gray. Even better is that I brought the two decent size bag fulls into school today to give to the sewing class. Win-Win. I keep thinking that I'm "done", then realize I'm really not. I can't say I thought much on the old project ideas, but I do feel a little lighter regardless.

Running - Working on a shorter stride in an attempt to lessen the heel impact .
Bike - Conitnue working on confidence and handling on the MTB. Took a couple of spills on Sunday without pain. This is a good thing
Swim - Pool should be open now, I need the schedule. Time to get back after it. 
Oh boy, what a fun night of Bahcheliar tomfoolery. This week began where last week should have ended, with a rose ceremony. Well, really there was a recap of Cor-ringe prior to that. And everyone else calling her to task, since they are all pure of heart and only have Nick's best interest in mind. Saints. So finally, we get to the rose ceremony and in the end, two brunettes that I'm not even sure I had seen before go home. One of them actually brings up tears. She developed real feelings in the 6 days she was at the mansion. Yeah, right. The next morning dawns and in walk our host TOAOCH, bringing with him the smashed hopes and dashed desires of countless seasons. Yes ladies, it's time[...]

7:55am:  Second day DOMS -- my calves are KILLING ME (don't worry, not literally, just metaphorically). This is what 3 intervals of stairs will do to an out-of-shape person. Go, me!
Busy day ahead -- doctor's appointment right after work, then dinner with my brother because he's been hounding me about wanting to get together and I've run out of excuses to put him off (lol, he's not a bad guy, I just like my after-work time to be my time as much as possible). Might turn into a rest day because of all of this (and my metaphorically murderous calves).

It was nice to have a day at home last night, just getting caught back up on chores.  Fortuantely we're having a spell of good weather, so transitioning back to MN hasn't been too bad.  I am going to Lifetime tonight for an "onboarding."  I suspect I will be told about services I can pay for.   I am going with an open mind - but no obligations. 
I really wanted to try the c9 class this morning, but I don't think going to the 6am class is going to happen during the winter... Need to be realistic and plan options that will work!

So management decided we needed MANDATORY OVERTIME to get caught up.  WTF?  We already work 12 plus hours a day!!  Whatever, the fax team is now caught up...I am sure the point of care side is still behind.  It's frustrating that they do not see what we face every.single.day.  And for the record, this is NOT a paid overtime.

Went to bed at 8 last night and slept straight through until 4:30, woke up feeling a bit better. I might try a small workout this evening depending on how the cold is behaving.

Grrrr, i still have a dry cough and a packed ear!!! So done with this! Why do i still have this lingering stuff and Darren and Felicity are fine! 
Thinking about doing some exercise tonight just to see if getting my blood pumping will help move things out of my system.
Also have the gestational diabetes test tomorrow morning.

Last Thursday, my left shoulder was feeling talkative. I went ahead and made an appointment with Jeff to take a look at it just to stay on top of things. I'm going to ask him to look at both shoulders and also my low back. Yesterday when I woke up it was tight. I see him after work and before Functional Strength class.

NOT RECOMMENDED PRIOR TO SWIMMING. ^^^^^^
 

After much hemming and hawwing (is that a thing?) and much soul searching... (really!) I decided to trade in my 11 year old convertible (Rita Gaspar) in favor of a newer version of (sorta) the same thing. Rita and I had a lot of good years together, and I hope she's off to a new family... not the scrap heap! 
Meet the new ride. Lexus IS 250C; hardtop convertible. This thing changes shape like a transformer!
