Easy little ride with Chris on the path.

My TdF Fantasy Team RULES. I am doing really really well. I probably won't win a prize in the overall contest, but I'm ranked 297 OVERALL and 26 in the USA. I am pretty good at knowing the strengths and weaknesses of professional cyclists. The yellow jersey has been on my team EVERY SINGLE DAY OF THE TOUR. Actually, all 3 major jerseys are currently on my team. 


  • Walking
  • 33m

Walked to the restaurant from the office and then from the restaurant to the theatre... then back to the office after the show. It was a really nice night and it didn't make sense to take a cab. Was about 2 miles total. Maybe a little more.

So this has been a rather meager week of workouts. Lots of socializing and not a lot of exercising. I have been working the LoseIt plan though, so I don't think I have done too poorly in regard to calorie/food intake and consumption. My stomach/intestines/etc seem to have recovered from whatever was freaking them out. I am eating carefully. 

Hamilton was again amazing. Of course. If you have the opportunity to see it when it comes to your city, go! Read a little bit about the history and story first, so you don't get lost in some of the rapid fire quick moving lyrics. I was completely bewildered the first time I saw the show. Last night, it was all I could do to KEEP FROM CLIMBING UP ON STAGE and joining in!  Unfortunately, I'm not the dancer I once was, and those of you who know me know I have never been a talented singer. So, while wildly entertaining for me, my performance would have been a bit of a bummer for the audience, that's for sure.

Hamilton tonight for the 3rd (and probably final) time! So excited to put the musical together with all of the songs that I now know by heart. 


Today's outfit. ^^^

Seeds and Nuts:

I am an unapologetic cycling nerd. I can't help it. It seems to be getting worse. 

I joined a Fantasy TdF  league or something.  I still am not sure of the rules and I don't know what I might win, but I'm doing pretty well! I am ranked 478 world wide and 28 in the USA. Ha. Who knew I was good at this? My team is as follows: 

  • Peter Sagan
  • Julian Alaphillipe
  • Greg VanAvermaet
  • Matty Hayman
  • Someone Castroviejo (I needed one last person and he was all I could afford... figured he was gonna be good since he's on Sky, but... so far he's done nothing for me)
  • Nikki Terpstra (chose him bc he won Paris Roubaix one year... and I knew about the Cobblestone stage)
  • Fernando Garviria (He was MONEY for the first couple of stages and will continue to be relevant in the closing stages and the final day) 
  • Geraint Thomas (He was a switch. I traded Marcel Kittel for him, since Kittel doesn't do anything in the mountains)

I have one more change left and I cant make it until after the next rest day. It's a budget problem... Who do I give up and who do I take? Hmmmmmmmm.

Departed Door County at 6:00 AM to get home before a 12:00 PM phone call. I had a 9 AM phone call in between and Chris had calls from 7:30-10 pretty much straight through. At one point we were both trying to conference at the same time. I had a headset and he was trying to run his call through the hands free car phone. I drove most of the time bc I had only 1 call. Got us home in plenty of time for my noon call which was pushed to 1:30 PM. 

This is the excitement of working remotely. 

Also, today is a rest day. Because I have been doing SO MUCH WORKING OUT. I must recover. Right? Right. In reality, I need to do 400 loads of laundry and regain control of the house. We left on Friday in a rush like a couple of refugees. The house was a tornado
