LOL my two female "coworkers" were fighting over the attention of their male "coworker" half the night, on my bed. Then one of them climbed onto my chest at 2:30 AM and demanded intensive cuddling from me for over an hour before she would finally go to sleep. Hissing, growling, and swatting in the butt happens at all hours. All have repeatedly joined conference calls without invites. It's beyond harassment. These coworkers simply have no boundaries at all!

Talk about missing the training. One co-worker started sleeping in another co-workers office, and now he insists on sitting her lap all day, including meals. If I get nuts out for a snack, he comes into the break room and demands I give him some of my nuts.

We have another that stays up until 3:00 A.M. video chatting with his friends and then sleeps in his office until 1:00 PM (he is struggling with not being at college.

Really it's been nice having two of them at home. We have spent a lot of time getting to know them as adults and we are happy with the people they have become. Although the boy still leaves half bottles of water and dishes out, but we are working on that.

Proof of Life (kind of)

Friday, 3/6 - last real workout, that killer ride and the brutal drag swim.

Friday, 3/13 - felt like my heart was racing, palpitations.  Walked 1 1/2 blocks from library to truck and was totally out of breath.  DW and I went to ER.  Two hours, two EKG's and two troponin tests later I was released with advice to see my cardiologist.

Friday, 3/27 - FINALLY got to see my cardiologist.  He's thrilled with my weight loss (30 lbs) and impressed by my workouts the last three months.  Cand not see any reason for concern in his EKG or exam.  Says we have to get a NucMed Stress EKG.  Have to wait until at least Monday to make that appt.

In the meantime, he says I can return to working out, just not at those impressive levels.  Says to workout "gently" and to stop at first sign of chest pains or shortness of breath.  DUH!!

ETA:  Off hand, if it took them over two weeks to get me in to his office and who knows how long I will have to wait for NucMed, I would guess that they/he aren't all that worried about this  My new plan is to cut everything back to 50% of previous levels and start working bike and walk/jog Monday.  Re-writing plan to reflect that and making a commitment to (a) not making any increases in excess of 10%, and (b) making Recovery weeks into TRUE Recovery weeks by scaling back both duration AND intensity.

There IS one good thing to report.  I've been house-locked, without a significant workout, for three weeks and have not gained a single pound!

Half of the battle is controlling what we can control.

Hello Manatees! I hope that you are all doing well and practicing the appropriate social distancing.  In just a few hours we'll wrap up week one of our Manatee At Home Challenge.  Use your time wisely :-)

Best I go and get that other yoga routine done now.

Stay safe!

Thanks for sharing your good news. We need all of the good news we can get these days!

Congrats on keeping the weight off!

Jim, you retrieved your daughter from Tulane, right?

No. Her classes are on-line and she stays in her apartment. We discussed her options and decided that we didn't want to take a chance on her traveling across county. We felt the safer option is for her to shelter in place until she takes the bar in July. She is taking a Texas Bar. There is nothing like studying 16 hours a day to help with social distancing. The choice is going from one hot spot to another. She said that LA has really poor medical care coupled with a lot of people who have lung issues from the refineries, so their death rate is abnormally high because of those preexisting conditions.
Michigan is really bad and especially the Detroit Metro area where she would fly in. Michelle has two remote manager meetings for the hospital every day and the conversations with what is going on in the metro hospitals is scary.
It was a difficult choice and time will only tell if it was the right one.

New Orleans v Detroit - that is a lousy choice! But, staying put was probably the better choice. Hope everyone stays healthy!

It's kept me on decent track this week Janyne. I'm definitely going to add one more yoga session tonight, and will try to get in one more workout too, but we'll see. I've kept the hydration going all week though!!!

Just updated. For some reason I forgot to add my name to keep moving--maybe that was the day it wouldn't let me edit. Having a hard time keeping up with this stuff--I'm also in a Dryland Swim Challenge with my online tri club. (Plus we had a virtual happy hour yesterday!)

Nice! I love that your tri club is doing that!

Regarding the JoGo -- I'm taking it week-by-week.  Actually, I'm kind of taking life week-by-week as well.
