I did everything I could to avoid this, but apparently I'm doing it this morning. Bah. Had to switch up my OTF days.

I am tired after a good stretch of consistent activity.  Lame-o!  It's nice and sunny today, I am going to run right after work to take advantage of pre-sunset light.

6:21am: Yesterday was a challenge to get through (at least, it was a challenge to stay awake through), but I made it to Tuesday. And life starts back in earnest with OTF this afternoon. 
My brother's house will go on the market on March 5. Once that's sold, that's the last of the big things to do. The rest -- disbursing the estate -- will be with an assist from the attorney so it won't be all on me. And speaking of him, the reunion this past weekend was totally weird without him there. I never really hung out with him much (I'm part of the group that gambles and he isn't), but we all missed him at the group gatherings. Just another one or many "firsts" that we'll keep experiencing.

Trying to tackle this fatigue and get myself back on track with some extra rest so I tried to sleep in. Made it until 5:45. I did feel much better today but this weather is the pits. Drizzling rain the last couple of days. 
My class is sweet to me but turning on one another! They are getting bossy and cranky. Girls are getting into cliques and leaving other girls out of their play. I really don't have a lot of time to spend trying to resolve social issues in second grade but I'll see what I can come up with.

What do you do when your homeless patient tells everyone to get the F*** out? The person will need post-discharge care and has crappy insurance with lousy networks. You refer to the crap hole nursing home that has one of the worst reputations.

Kind of funny that I decided to stay put in my job and today a recruiter contacted me about a CEO job.  Never fails that when you are looking you see nothing and when you aren't there are opportunities.  Feeling pretty motivated though as a result of Saturday's conference and a course I'm taking.

Had to skip yesterday's run since Bri didn't go to sleep until 12:30am, but really probably could've squeezed it in during the evening. However, actually having some success here on the nutrition front. Last Thursday was my highest weight ever. Ridiculous and uncalled for, but since then I'm actually down 4.4 lbs. It seems hard to believe, but it's true. It's going to take months and months to get back to a healthy size, but at least it seems possible now. I had just done the sample pack to start to see how it was, but did a two month order of the 310 today. The not feeling hungry is almost a little weird. It seems like it should take longer to break the sugar cycle. 
I'm really having to work to stay calm before Casey's liver appointment Friday. He told me (for the first time) a couple days ago that shortly before his mom died she had told him that he had been diagnosed with glycogen storage disease and was never supposed to have lived past early adolescence. So much a case o[...]

Well I did it! I am proud of myself. We'll see if anything comes to fruition. If not, it's time to dust off the old resume and start again elsewhere. I asked for what I wanted. It's up to them to determine if it's worthwhile to make it happen.

We went to an Orangetheory Happy Hour. You can't see my cute shoes, but you can see the top of my bra. WTF.

I saw my PT again yesterday and I am feeling a little bit more positive.
Right now, I pursuing on two different paths -- (1) ortho > MRI > figure this sh*t out, (2) PT - just work on the angry parts and get well.  My PT said that regardless of the underlying cause (probably some sort of overuse thing), the fascia that runs from my right hip/iliopsoas down to my inside of my right knee is pretty pissed off.  We are working to calm that stuff down.  The area closer to the knee feels better now (see, just the threat of an MRI made it better!) and now it's the hip that is annoyed.  So pretty much I manage to disturb a whole *network* and not just one piece of it.  Go me. My PT also said that as long I continue to see improvement, even a little bit week-to-week, that it's fine to continue training.
Oh, and regarding the ortho, I've used him twice before and been really pleased but this last time, the exam was really too short and I don't feel like he li[...]

Toned-down version of my normal Tuesday workout - felt just fine minus some nose stuffiness.  Weather sucks.
