First time under 150lbs in a LONG time. Have not been very compliant, so pleased to at least get this far. With no major parties/races/power outages - I hope, on the radar I think I can get some traction on eating the right stuff at the right times. Yay!

We're into the part of tax season where it feels like it will never end. ARGH! Going to get as much as I can done in the office today, then head outside for an hour or two to cut vines off trees.

Spent most of the day with the mil yesterday. She's already going on and on about Costa Rica. I haven't told her yet, but it's going to be without me. I'm not going through last January again. If her son wants her to go, then he can go stay with her. I get stressed out just thinking about it.

I need more of that....but an hour seems too long to do at once (mentally). I kept checking the time count down on my screen....
Observations:  Forward fold poses when your allergies are acting bonkers are not fun.

I finally got some yard work done! I sent the dog to doggie day care. Socialization for her, chores for me. I have soooooooo much to do in the yard!!! Okay, in the house, too. I am still catching up from the interruption from the fire and being sick for a month! Little steps!

So Dr. P - my chiro worked wonders - yesterday was mostly pain free run.

Today we got a couple inches of snow and everything is at a stand still. Working from home this morning with the puppies.

Hoping for more last night but I had dropped Chris off to run home from the eastern part of Anchorage to ER. I said if I didn't hear from him at 7:40pm I would come looking for him. Left the gym early and then off to find it - he was around the corner from home.

Man crazy amounts of work get done when you wake up early. Crazy. I'm already nearly done with 2 of the 3 reports that are due today (it's noon) have done two drive-by inspections and one full interior, and had lunch. Did I already mention it's only noon? So that means if I really work hard I can get the other report done AND finish the one that's not due until tomorrow, and just take tomorrow morning easy instead of having to work in the morning or during travel on our way to San Diego. Supposed to run 3 miles today and 4.5 tomorrow, but I'm having some soreness in my patella tendon so I'm wondering if I should rest today, do 3 tomorrow before we leave, and then 4.5 on Thursday at some point. I'll see how I'm feeling in a few hours.

Really wanted to run once I got done with work today (at 4PM no less!) but I decided it would be wisest to just take it easy this evening, knowing that with travelling and doing who knows what else the next week I'll be better off not perpetuatin[...]

And another morning didn't go as planned. I have not slept well the past two nights, so when the alarm went off at 4:00, I didn't get up. I slept in until 6:00. In addition, I am also starting my period which always makes me so tired! Well, I plan on running during a late lunch today (will be late due to meetings) and then biking this evening. I have a recovery week with recovery weekends on both ends of the week (when going home to Cincinnati), so I want to keep up my training until then.

Neck, shoulder, back was still really stiff and sore all day. By afternoon I plain old didn't feel good - achy all over and tired again. I'm not too sure if I'm sick again or allergies or what. I got a decent nights sleep last night so I don't know why I keep feeling so tired. 
Weather was overcast and high of 60 today. At times the sun would barely peak through and the wind was calm it felt really nice. Then the clouds would come back and the wind blow again. 
I got sassed off at by all 3 boys at school today! They were all in a mood because they sassed at the other teachers too. They are not like that usually. They have their challenges but not typically behavior issues. I got to cover vocabulary class for the speech teacher while she was in a meeting. We had fun. I really love teaching. 

Core work and a tiny bit of stretching

Its official. RIP Harold the pontoon boat. Good news: we had full replacement cost coverage. Even better news: they allowed up to but the boat for what a salvage company quoted, and we resold it for a profit of a few grand. The bad news: the man is going big on the replacement boat and will not yield. It will cost us THOUSANDS we had no intention of spending on boating this year or any year for that matter. Like, NO INTENTION. So, while it really could not be a better situation for a totaled boat, it is still a fiscal burden we as a family did not have anywhere on the radar. I disagree with the expense. I can think of a million better ways to spend the money than in a vehicle that we use five months (if that) of the year. But, I digress. Life is short, and I don't want to fight forever over it. I could, but I don't want to.

In other news, my son is done with college for now. Maybe forever, but definitely for now. Not thrilled (or surprised) about that either. He will[...]
