Totally on a whim yesterday, I submitted an application to adopt an older dachshund in Tallahassee. My sister sent me the post, and my heart strings about broke. She's 8 years old, so obviously you go into that knowing you only have a few years. But sounds like she's house trained and crate trained and loves to snuggle. I'm trying not to get my hopes up TOO much, because I know how stingy people who make adoption decisions can be, but look at her! My heart.

Leg day plus stretching. So much more energy to workout midday once I've had some food, coffee, and woken up some. But I don't know how to make this schedule a routine. Silly job.

Rest Day!
Sushi plans tonight with Dara, Jody and Agnes. In the middle of the predicted blizzard. I think I'm going to stay @ Dara's house since we're supposed to do OTF tomorrow AM in Wheaton and the studio is pretty close to her condo. I'll take Chris' 4 wheel drive SUV and worry about getting all the way home tomorrow morning. Hopefully the plows will be out overnight.

Hoooooooorrrraaaaaayyyyy Chicago! 6 to 12 inches expected. Blagh.

7:20am: Instant Pot Friday! We're doing chili  again, but a different recipe. The weather here is going to be turning extremely cold and very snowy, so it seemed like the thing to do.
Was feeling kind of cruddy last night by the time I got home and was worried that I had picked up the bug that my friend Kate's kid has ... but after a decent night's sleep (easier when I don't have to stay up late to reboot the firewall), I'm doing pretty well this morning. I'm thinking I dodged that bullet...
The plan is to get my weekend errands out of the way this afternoon -- the winter storm warning starts at 3pm, so I should be able to do grocery shopping, library and put gas in the car and then not have to leave the house until Monday morning. That's the dream. We'll see if I can pull it off!

This is literally the first time I've had 10 min at my desk all week!!!  There is just so much going on.
I'm supposed to meet Andrea and Paula tomorrow morning for a hike/walk and brunch, but I think it's supposed to snow overnight so we'll see.  I need to find some time at least to get in a run.  I think there is a gym available in one of the buildings on my work campus but I haven't sorted all that out yet (even though we've been in this building for several months now).  It's not super convenient, but it would be something if it's too rainy or snow covered outside.

Staying home one more day -- I could probably work half a day but not really worth it.
I might try some yoga today, just to move a bit.

Claussen's Tavern tonight. I am making a buffalo chicken dip and bringing Mexican Beer. And will try to stick to the food plan, but this may be a challenge.
Need to get my walking in prior to that. Much like prior weight loss challenges, I am out of the gate strong. Got to keep after it, this is not a sprint.
