Worked until 9pm but I got the project complete and ready for the CFO tomorrow.

She left before 5 - showed up at 745 - I told her what I had left and no offer to help or anything. AWESOME!


Lucky I got some walking in on campus this morning when I got called in to fix a switch. Didn't get as much as I need or my 6K steps but I am not walking around my house at 9:05pm to get another 1500 steps.

Feeling back to normal.  Past 2 days were brutal.  Up all night Monday and then had my appointment on Tuesday and with after effects of sedation and lack of sleep I was like a zombie.  The preparation is worse than the actual procedure but no one tells you about it.  Very "draining" experience LOL.

MTH1-LOWER BODY-3 SETS OF:
12 reps: Lateral Step With Rubber Band (orange)
20 reps: Elbow Plank 1 Leg Raise
15 reps: Kettle Bell Goblet Squat to Bench 25#
15 reps: Lying Swiss Ball Hip Extension
14 reps: Dead Bug with Stability Ball (each side)
24 reps: Dumbbell Side Lunges 15# each
12 reps: DB Sliding Back Lunge 20#
50 reps: Criss Cross Crunches

Could definitely feel my right hamstring at one point so thinking I pulled it a little - went too deep on either a squat or side lunge.

I just gave Kevin two options.  His response?  "Looks nice. Sure."

9:21 AM: Finger is about 95% recovered. I still have an itchy scab on the side where the lil stung me, but the swelling is mostly down. 
Work is a gauntlet. We have a barely functional computer system. You click... something happens...maybe... 30-45 seconds later. Then you wonder... what was I trying to do? I have the attention span of a gnat. We need quick moving computers. 
3:31 PM: I will not be riding the trainer tonight. I anticipate working until... tomorrow. 
7:37 PM: Logging off finally. My neck hurts.

One more day until my mom and sister arrive! I'm so excited, I haven't seen them since Christmas! Also bracing for tropical storm weather from Zeta to move through Atlanta tomorrow morning. Crossing my fingers it doesn't knock out power or bring trees down. Still boxing random things up - it never seems to end.
Swung by the house over lunch to sign off on the handyman work - good stuff. We had decided on two outlets in the pantry, and I didn't realize the first one would be a four-outlet block, then the second one is a two-outlet block. So now I'll have an excessive amount of outlets in the pantry but lol better than none. And the washer dryer box looks great - can't wait to use my new appliances. They're "smart" and connect to Wifi - I didn't really want that fancy of machines but unless you get the bottom of the line they all come with that now.

Dusted off the Cervelo.  

Nice headwind on the way out.  Nice tailwind on the way back.  Felt great.  Run off the bike felt ok.  I ran in new water shoes to see how they would feel for the swim run event.  They were ok.

Had my first haircut this morning since March and that may be my last one with my beloved hairdresser in a long time.  She's super sweet, but wasn't wearing her mask properly (it was only over her mouth and not her nose, and she started talking a lot about how we're all going to get covid anyways so we just have to deal with it.  Ugh.  Not the thing to say to a client.
Thyroid tests finally came back in range, but my dr was a little surprised at how fast they changed. 2 weeks ago my primary dr had me do some bloodwork for my iron levels and threw in thyroid tests as well. In 2 weeks, my TSH went from .41 (low) to 1.6 (in range). Since these labs change ultra slowly (mine has previously only gone up .3 since June with 3 dosage changes), he was really surprised it went up 1.2 points in 2 weeks. But he doesn’t want to talk about it until my appointment in December. 

Super tired today and this is going to be probably a zero workout week. My blood sugar was[...]

The "meth house" behind us finally went on the market this past weekend and it looks like it is already under contract. I'm not surprised given the market; plus, the flipper has made it look pretty nice. Here's the listing. It's a far cry from how it looked before. It actually looks good from the outside and in the listing pics. (For reference, it was super dark and cluttered before, there were tons of people who lived there and they had up to 6 pit bulls at a time, plus the flipper guy told us there were a lot of mice inside too as they were gutting it. And they had some super weird front pond & landscaping that was all ripped out.) So yeah, it looks WAY better now.
However, Dave and I watched this guy's work enough that we actually feel a little sorry for whoever buys this house. It seems to be kind of a "lipstick on a pig" situation - we know that he left completely rotting exterior boards on the entire south side of the house (that faces our backyard) and just put[...]
