Stats taken after after run and before getting something to eat/drink, %water 68.0, muscle 37.6, bone 3.9. Wow! A purple bar!! That means I'm back in the pool! It also unfortunately means that I will continued to get congested with some sort of reaction to the pool water when I go. I may try an OTCM allergy spray to see if I can ward this off rather than the spray decongestant I have to take so I can breathe again. Anyway, the swim went about as well as can be expected after not being there for so long. Then mostly a full-body strength session after that. Had to skip a couple of leg exercises since the machine looked busy for a while and I had to get back to work. Then this evening, on the CT as planned and decided on an easy course I've done before. What my chiropractor did yesterday did me a world of good this evening and there was only some discomfort where the knot was broken up yesterday. So, seems like I'm definitely on the mend. Need to foam roll the area and will go[...]

1:45 PM: Am thinking I'll have the boots done closer to home at a more reputable place. That's off the list til this weekend. Woot! More and more eBay stuff is selling! I'm not exactly going to get rich doing this, but I can get rid of some stuff and maybe make a little $$ too.

7:40am:  SORE.  VERY SORE.  Kind of a nice feeling after a week+ of being a sloth and eating all the food in sight.
More workouts this afternoon, though I'm going to have to work it around my roommate's client training schedule -- she's usually very good about giving me a more-than-adequate window of time to get my training in after work, but she's headed to AZ to visit her family tomorrow and trying to squeeze in as many clients as possible.  So - I'm being nice.  Also she said that if I let her use that time slot, she'd make dinner.  :)

Well I think I needed this time off. I have slept more than I'd like to say. I'm eating again but still no where near as healthy as I used to. No sweets or anything just need more fruits, veggies and water. And a little less wine. LOL! Today was the first day my stomach didn't feel like I got kicked in the gut and I actually enjoyed my day. A little better each day!

Stay focused on what truly matters. Love every moment of life. Don't let negative people distract you.
Today was "400" day. For anyone that is wondering, 400 day is tough. It hurts. It pretty much sucks. On the positive side, it helps you get faster and stronger. And the biggest positive is that it is done! 
So here is some insight into the life of the empty nester, please turn away if you are faint of heart. 400 day was done and I was standing in the bathroom sweating and wanting a cup of coffee. I also wanted to drop my sweaty clothing into the laundry. Not wanting to use an ounce more energy or more time than was necessary, I started the shower.  I then walked to the laundry room, completely undressed and dropped off all my clothes, walked to the kitchen, poured a cup of coffee, added sugar to it, stirred it, stood and looked out the kitchen window into the darkness outside. I then slowly walked back to the bathroom and climbed into the shower, cup of Joe in hand. Wh[...]

Had to leave at 6am for a meeting yesterday. Really should've done something when I got back at 6pm, but was just having a hard time mentally/emotionally. I was roaring go this morning, but something did not go right with the treadmill lube. The belt would totally stop moving, jerk, catch, stop. I know Case lost the straw to the nozzle under the belt, but I know we used the correct product. Super disappointed though since I am making an effort and not able to get anything done.

Still feeling a little dizzy.  I am working my wheel problem.  I am adding a term for cross-bending stiffness to the stiffness matrix.
 
I am waiting for a call from the Dr.'s office to schedule a PT appointment for my BPPV.  I think they will be teaching me the Epley maneuver.
 
If things go well today,  I will ride the exercise bike this afternoon.
