Tired and heavy tonight. I left my lunch at home this morning so went home to eat over lunch. Driving back to work I nearly fell asleep, and felt so tired all afternoon. Feel like I go through this phase every year as the seasons and weather change.

Quick jaunt with Ellie Mae

For my professional development "extracurricular" activity at work (that's what I like to call it), I've been serving on our national conservation council for the past two years. And while I'm super passionate about the message and initiatives, I got frustrated and burnt out as the leadership leaves a lot to be desired. So I'm rolling off of that committee and on to a regional industry board as the communications chair. A lady on my larger team is rolling off, so it will be a smooth transition. 

But here's the kicker - to be on the new board, I have to attend a transition meeting on SATURDAY in CHATTANOOGA. I'm almost offended that they are taking a whole Saturday away from everyone, when I imagine employers would gladly give everyone a work day for something like this where they've already approved participation. It's not a horrible drive - just under 2 hours each way - but still. It will take my entire Saturday. And why couldn't it have been a virtual meeting? The things we do for networking and professional gain.

Lunch treadmill. Feeling ready for the run streak to be done. Today is run streak day 348, so not much longer to go. Not sure if I will stop at 365 or continue on to make it a Thanksgiving-to-Thanksgiving streak. That would be 372 days (Thanksgiving was "early" last year). I had a wild thought to just keep going, but not sure if I want to.

Nice long run! 55 degrees and sunny. New bladder for my hydration pack worked well.

  • 01m 55s /100 yards

Look at me, I swam! Had to laugh when the sign said the pool heater was broken; water temp 81 degrees. This pool is usually around 84. Felt so good!

I'm down exactly 2 pounds since last Friday - win! Measuring and weighing and logging everything that goes into my mouth is certainly tedious, but man it sure works for me. First goal is 7 more pounds down, then I'll re-assess. 

Caved and turned on the heater last night. It was 34 degrees this morning, and I 100% welcome this weather! I always hated cold weather as a kid, but in terms of running outdoors, it's so much better on my body. 8-mile long run this weekend, and I got a new bladder for my hydration pack so I won't have to stick to the River Walk for the water fountain (which might be shut down anyway due to the weather). This one came with a hangar to dry it out and a cleaning package - genius. 

Aaaand finally went ahead and purchased my London sight-seeing stuff. I had been putting that off, but bought my tickets for a Soho evening food tour the night I arrive (get in early morning, hoping to take a nap as soon as I can check in to the hotel), the London Pass (3-day) so I don't have to decide which attractions I want to see right now, a pre-loaded Oyster card (public transportation) and since the London Eye was not included in the London Pass, I got a fast track ticket for that because that's the one thing I 100% want to do. I also should be receiving today a universal power adapter and a PacSafe fanny pack thing for traveling (cut-resistant, RFID-blocking, sits flat under clothes and can hold passport, cards, money, etc.). I think I'm done!

It rained all day, but there was a break just after 4 p.m. so I jetted outdoors for my run! Cold front moving through so temps in the low 50s and windy. SUPER proud of my speed on my normal hilly route, especially my middle mile (ok flat but still) coming in at 10:47!

Cold and wet with Ellie Mae. She gets so dirty and wet on her belly, even on short walks.

By coincidence, I'm working from home today AND it's Halloween. Which is a stroke of sheer luck because #traffic. And it's raining so #doubletraffic. And i'ts Halloween so #tripletraffic.  I have no idea why, but the second sprinkles fall from the sky, Atlanta drivers lose their collective minds on the road. Accidents everywhere, immediate dead standstills on every highway and side street, it's insane. I'm incredibly happy to be in my PJs snuggling Ellie Mae all day while everyone else scrambles to get on and off the roads for trick or treating. 

And speaking of my sassy sausage, I waited too long to look for a Halloween costume, so she's a Chipotle burrito LOL! Maybe I'll get something on clearance this weekend for next year.
